Worth the Wait

No, I'm not talking about our baby, because she's not here yet. I'm sure she also will have been worth the wait whenever she does arrive. What I'm talking about is my birthday present! Okay, I only waited one extra day, but it would have been worth it to wait a whole lot longer than that! Last night as I was doing something (worthwhile and productive, no doubt) on the computer, Troy was messing around in the kitchen. I stood up, turned around, and this is what I saw on the kitchen table:



Do you hear the angels and the harps? The choirs singing its praises? I sure did! A Viking Stand Mixer. I thought I was going to have to wait many years before one of these graced my kitchen counter. And by "grace" I actually mean "dominate." Move over bacon, here comes something really big. The kitchen now needs some serious rearranging, which I will enjoy doing while I'm waiting and waiting for a contraction to show up.

Thank you, sweet husband, for fulfilling my dreams of mixing joy. I can't decide what to start with. I really have no need for whipped cream at the moment, but the sight of the giant balloon whisk attachment is pretty tempting. And come on, how often have you been unable to find a use for a quart of whipped cream?

Psych! When I saw your title, I was so impressed that you'd already blogged! Hope you don't have to wait much longer for her.

The mixer is definitely blog-worthy, though! I'm so jealous! I keep thinking I'd like to start making homemade bread, but I'm too lazy to do it all by hand, and my grandma's circa 1965 Sunbeam mixmaster just won't do the job. I've never really looked at the Viking. I've always liked the bowl on the Kitchen Aide, but the power of the Bosch—this looks like the best of both worlds. Maybe someday when we've finished paying for the kitchen...

Hello! There is something good to take your mind of your lack of natal activity. A Viking! Fabulous!

I keep checking my cousins and your blog to find out. My cousin's wife had their baby last wednesday. I am glad you have something to distract you until the baby comes. I am jealous of that mixer.

What a nice surprise! I'm not very familiar with Viking, but I do love my Kitchenaid. This one looks even more swoon-worthy, though. Yay!
