28 March 2011


For my birthday I received some wonderful new kitchen tools. My family truly loves me and spoils me. One of the wonderful gifts was a new Kitchen Aid stand mixer I have wanted given to me by my fabulous boyfriend. I immediately took the old mixer to the garage to get it ready to donate. The only problem is that the new mixer is larger and does not fit in its place. My mother-in-law suggested adjusting my cabinets but I think a simpler process is in order.

It always feels good to clean out my kitchen. Hope to have some before pictures soon.
