Countertop covet.

What could be more exciting than getting your very own kitchenaid mixer? Why, getting your very own "pistachio" kitchenaid mixer of course!! Yes, the very thing I have been coveting forever and ever is finally sitting tall (but not too tall as it is the convenient little tilt-back artisan) in my....basement. Which is making me even more antsy (if that's even possible) to play house and set up a cute little kitchen. And I'm so glad I stuck to my guns and went with the minty green beauty. I nearly chickened out and settled for the white. But why play it safe when you can have so much fun mixing away with THIS one? YAY! I just want to bake and bake...and make mashed potatoes :) Hopefully many pictures to come of deliciously fun desserts I learn to whip up...when we finally find a place to move that is.

Cozying up for the holidays

So it's the night before thanksgiving, and I am quite thankful to be cozied up on the couch with my hubbie and Poppy, despite the fact that he is channel flipping between X-Men and some fishing show. :) But as always I am drooling over eye-candy on the internet, and came across a living room that depicts my idea of the perfect thanksgiving. How I would love to be curled up on this couch with the warm surroundings and the coziest fire burning in the most simple but wonderful fireplace. Hmm...how I wish for a home of our own. But, tis the season for thanksgiving, and I have so many blessings in my life to be thankful for.  Now for that pumpkin bread I smell baking... :) Happy Thanksgiving!
