Pampered Chef shindig and a mixer!

I didnt make it to kickboxing this morning.....mostly because I chose sleep over workout again. Blah, whatever, I havent been sleeping well lately anyway.
Today I spent some time waiting for the UPS person to deliver my new KitchenAid mixer I have been so patiently waiting for. While Kevin was home on lunch, I was able to go to a Pampered Chef party hosted by my friend Chantal! We enjoyed cranberry-apple twists, and had a great time chatting! I ended up ordering a few small things for our kitchen--a citrus peeler, a set of 3 flexible cutting mats, and a new vegetable peeler! I want the pineapple cutter, but that will be for another time! I actually want a few more things from there, so maybe next month I will place another order :) If you guys want to order anything, FB message me or leave a comment and I will put you in touch with Chantal!
After the party, I hightailed it home to continue waiting for UPS. When I got home though, I was pleasantly suprised to find a big KitchenAid box on our front porch! Apparently, the delivery person came in the 40 minute timeframe between when Kevin went back to work and I came home. The driver was really great about pushing it back up against my house as much as possible so it wasnt visible. Sometimes living on the far end of the street has its perks! :) Anyway, the mixer is all set up!

Isnt it awesome??? I just HAD to use it today (but I didnt really have time to bake cookies or anything), so I decided to make homemade mashed potatoes to go with our dinner tonight and it only took 15 seconds to mash them up! Plus, it did a really great job! I cant wait to make cookies with it on Friday/Saturday!!
Tomorrow, I'm getting up and going to spin class, followed by zumba! After that, I have to hightail it home to shower and go with Kevin to Tripler so he can have a pre- surgery procedure done. Basically the docs want to put a camera down his throat and down to his pancreas, so they can have a live view. This will help them better prepare and plan his surgery. Well, they have to sedate my poor love for the procedure, so he will not be able to drive afterwards. I am fascinated to see what they find in there!
More tomorrow :)



  1. Just wanted to say that you do an awesome job at your blogs, it's so nice that I can just get on your page and "poof" I got all the info I need! Thanks so much, and I will continue to pray for both you and Kevin! You guys are going through alot of stuff right now, and I want you to know that we think of you guys often and will continue to pray for you all!
    Love ya,

  2. I'm glad your mixer came on time, sounds like you're going to have a lot of fun making goodies with it =) Could you put me in touch with your Pampered Chef friend. I am interested in ordering a few things for sure but I don't know anyone here personally that sells it. Thanks!
    Happy aloha Thursday =)

  3. I wouldn't have thought to do mashed potatoes in a mixer! That's a good idea!
