(Closed) Kitchenaid Mixer Giveaway

by Shawnda on May 8, 2011

in Giveaways

Raspberry Ice Kitchenaid Mixer

We look for any excuse to celebrate. Little things, big things – we treat them all the same. Usually with a margarita. Or a bottle of port. Last night, we celebrated some fun blogging milestones by finishing some new distressed wood props… and a bottle of our ’07 port :) Tonight, we celebrate with the prettiest mixer that I’ll never own.

The color is beautiful. And the glass bowl wouldn’t last 30 seconds in our house. I’d like to be able to blame the kiddo but let’s be honest here, I’d drop it. And then I’d probably cry. And then I’d get really, really angry. At Kitchenaid. Because they made a glass bowl. But that’s enough of that…

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post and tell us: What are you most looking forward to now that the weather is warm?

The fine print:
- One comment per person.
- (Optional) You can earn two extra entries by:

    – Leaving an additional comment saying that you’ve liked us on Facebook
    – Leaving an additional comment saying that you’ve followed us on Twitter

- Giveaway ends at 11:59pm (Texas time!) on Friday the 13th (dun dun dun).
- Winner will be selected by one of those cold, soulless, unfeeling random number generator thingies and announced back here on Sunday.
- If hot pink isn’t your thing, a mixer of equal value may be chosen.
- Due to freight limitations, prize can only be shipped within North America.

Good luck!

Cat walks!

I live in the parries of Canada and I just look forward to the winter being over! We have had so much snow this winter I thought I wouldn’t make it. As a student with little cash flow it is nearly impossible to leave the house in the winter but now that it is nice out I can just walk and walk and walk. This year I discovered a little something I refer to as cat walks.

8 months of the year, Canadian cats are indoor cats so they are very excited to get out as soon as the weather is nice. I like to take a little jar of cat treats and shake them as I walk around the residencial neighbourhoods treating any little friends that come out to say hello!

To make things slightly crazier I also keep track with my iPhone of which areas are “cat hot spots” or post to facebook when I find a particularly interesting kitteh!

I’ve got a boyfriend, I swear! These winter’s just make people a little crazy!

I’m looking forward to be able to actually spend time outside this summer. Field work, working on my reading list, chilling by the lake, spending way too much money at the farmers market, not being stuck in a lab with one window for most of the summer. It’s going to be a good one :)

I’m currently studying for a study-intensive professional exam on June 4th. As such, I’m missing all the nice weather by spending my weekends studying. I’m also missing out on perfect lighting that could be turned into perfect food pictures because I don’t have time to cook as much as I’d like. SO, I’m looking forward to this test being over so I can finally go outside. :-)

373 Kate May 9, 2011 at 4:44 am

I’m looking forward to enjoying eating outside. I love picnics!

374 Annie May 9, 2011 at 4:57 am

Oh and celebrating our first anniversary in August :)

I truly love that color on that mixer!

It’s been a long stint of colder weather here on the East Coast, and this native Arizona college girl can’t wait for the chance to go back home to see her family of 6 in July. It’ll have been 7 months since I’ve seen them! It will also be a shock to return to 115 degree heat after over a year! In the mean time, I’m looking to spend every warm Rhode Island day outside.
