Let’s rewind a little bit to Saturday night, the night before Valentine’s Day. We had just arrived back home and were comfy in our jammies on the couch preparing to watch a movie. We couldn’t settle on a movie so decided to watch some re-runs of The Office. About half way through the first episode, I got a hankering for popcorn.
I walked to the pantry, grabbed a bag, and tossed it in the microwave. Of course I didn’t need the popcorn, but the thought of watching a show without it just seemed unbearable.
I went over to our corner cabinet to grab a large bowl. This cabinet is one of those long, awkward, corner cabinets that extends the length of the counter top. I stuff things back there that I never use or really large things that don’t fit well other places.
I reached down to grab the bowl and noticed a little something somewhat hidden near the door. Something red with an oh-so-familiar logo across the front. Not quite registering yet, I closed the cabinet and returned back to the microwave.
The first thing that popped into my head was “What was that? My blender, right?” Then I told myself that wasn’t right because my blender is Cuisinart brand. I don’t own anything with that oh-so-familiar logo on it.
Or do I?
The popcorn still popping away in the microwave, I started processing this out loud. “What in the world was that?!” “OMG what is this, Grayson!?!?!” I flung the cabinet back open, moved a couple things around, and there it was in all its classic beauty. My very own red KitchenAid Stand Mixer!
I squealed and dragged it out onto my lap and clinged onto it for dear life, squealing with excitement!! What an awesome surprise! I’m a VERY hard person to surprise, but Grayson did a great job with this one. I can count on one hand how many times he has genuinely surprised me and this is one of them!
Soooo who remembers the post about me needing a very important kitchen tool? If you don’t, allow me to jog your memory here. I see lots of salted caramel chocolate chip cookies in my future 😉 Can’t wait to try this baby out! Happy Valentine’s Day to me! Love you babe 😉 ❤
I really have the most amazing husband. I thank God for him every. single. day.
