Just like that commercial!

Did you ever see that commercial when the wife takes her friends into her new closet and they all scream and then they hear the husband and his friends screaming about the huge beer fridge in their basement. Well that is how this christmas was here. My husband has been itching for a flat screen with hd and finally got one this year.

I on the other hand like tv but not that much. I love to bake though and have wanted a Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer for years and I finally figured out how to get one without breaking the bank.  My husband used to travel alot at his last few jobs and collected lots of miles on different airlines.  They have been sitting there for a few years waiting to be used, but we just never used them so I got this great idea to cash in miles for gift cards this year. I got my mother in law Talbots and my brother in law and my neighbor barnes and noble and I got my husband a gap gift card. I also saved a few points to get 200$ in macys gift cards and used those to get the almighty mixer! I have already made mashed potatoes and banana crunch muffins and I am going to give bread a try this week. I love love love it, and I only had to pay 86 dollars including tax to get it!

Hope you all got what you wanted for the holidays, and lets hope 2010 is better then all the rest!
