I was so excited to get my cabinet back give away Big Red that I stayed up late so I could shut off comments at 11:59pm and then let the geniuses behind Random.org pick the new owner of the mixer.

And that winner is: Jessalyn. Congratulations! And thank you for reading! (And check your email for details on how to make Big Red show up on your door step in 3-5 business days.)

Thanks for playing! And if you weren’t as lucky as Jessalyn this time, come back soon because we’ll be saying “Thanks” again around Thanksgiving :) Maybe we’ll even say “thanks” in electric blue!



When in Mexico…

The hardest thing about being a tourist is resisting the urge to be a tourist.

Zermatt Bakery

The dirt cheap, watered-down margaritas from Carlos ‘N Charlie’s wage a constant war with the ear-splitting music from Senor Frogs. And with the divine Siren song of just-like-home greasy Hard Rock Cafe fries wafting in the air, we turned our back to commercialized Cozumel and headed inland.

KitchenAid Christmas in July

Our new children – for $150 each. Lowe’s most recent ad ran a misprint for a sale on the 5-qt Artisan stand mixer for $150. The store that we frequent honored the sale price through special order – and Lowe’s computer system had the $150 price loaded for all 5-qt mixers except the professional series (we tried… couldn’t hurt!).

The copper mixer above retails for 489-529. There is also a $30 rebate on the Artisan mixers – $120 for one of baking’s most useful tools.

Go to the KitchenAid website, find your model number and head in to the store (some stores have been accepting phone-in orders). The sale price is good through the weekend but I’d call your local store first since there has been inconsistent information on when Lowe’s will stop honoring the sale price.

Christmas in July – or get your Christmas shopping done in July. A great deal, no matter how you look at it!

Updated info:
The ad came out approx 7/11. It was on the inside front page. We special-ordered two artisan mixers in-store with the ad in-hand, and when we realized that the Metallic line was also covered later in the evening, we went to another store. We did not have the ad but it didn’t make a difference because the price for the metallic line mixers in the system was $150.
