oh my precious!!

Good Evening Everyone!

I have been waiting forever to finally own a Kitchenaid mixer! My dad, brother & I went in together, years ago, and got my mom one for Christmas. A real pretty red Kitchenaid mixer. Since she got hers, I have always wanted my own but I could never decide on what color to get or did I have the money to ever buy one. First it was pink, then teal, then purple, then back to pink and finally ending it with teal. My husband as well as friends all thought it would look lovely in my kitchen and frankly, so did I. No lie, it does look AMAZING in my kitchen.

I ended up purchasing the Kitchenaid Artisan design series in Sea Glass (shiny teal as I call it). Instead of getting the mixer with the stainless steel bowl, I went for the one with the beautiful glass bowl that has a built in spout. That’s one thing I didn’t really care for when my mom got her mixer – the lack of spout makes pouring a nightmare and a big mess. Though it was a little more expensive to get the mixer with the glass bowl, I have no regrets.







Last night was my first night using it. *Insert girly giggle*. I decided my first recipe being made with the Kitchenaid mixer was going to be peanut butter blossoms (husbands favorite cookie). Not only did the mixer tackle the task but my cookies came out delicious.

Who else own’s a Kitchenaid mixer and is absolutely in love with it? I seriously can NOT wait to make everything under the sun with it. Cookies, scones, cupcakes, cakes…EVERYTHING! 

I hope you all enjoyed my post! Stay tuned for more posts in the future.

Me & My Big Ideas Happy Planner | Organization Lover

Raise your hand if you like to organize. *Raises hand* I love to organize and keep track of my budget and bills. You name it, I’ll organize it. Ha ha! During the pre-Black Friday sales, my friend Jessica mentioned that she was going to Michael’s. The minute she said that, I hopped on my computer to see what sales they had going on. I wasn’t even really looking to get out and spend money but I saw they had the planners on sale for around $9.99-$13.99 and after looking through them online and watching a couple of videos on youtube about folks who used them and LOVED them, I was sold. I convinced hubby to go with me Thursday night at almost 9:30PM to go get my planner. We walked in and they had a small selection near the front of the store. However, there was a bigger selection toward the back that had more planners and the stickers/additional things you can get for them. I ended up picking the happy planner because I loved the quote on the front and loved the watercolor on the cover. One of the things I love about this planner is that you can customize everything! There are super cute stickers to add to personalize it and one of the things I got was a budget planner. It fits the smaller planners but since they’re all setup the same, you can make it work in the big planner as well. Anyway, enough talking … let’s get on to the photos!






Isn’t it lovely!! The little hearts on the rings was a cute touch. I forgot to mention that thanks to how they’ve set this planner up, you can easily remove and add more pages! It’s great! I’ve heard that a lot of people will take the pages out and get them laminated so they don’t have to buy new ones. I actually was thinking of making copies of my budget planner so I don’t have to keep buying more. Hope you all love my planner too and don’t forget, they’re available at Michael’s!
