Good Things Do Come to Those Who Wait and Links

For those of you who have read my blog for a while, you may remember my obsession with a KithcenAid stand mixer. I wrote about it last January and have continued to talk about my precious throughout the year. Well, Merry Christmas to me, as this was one of my fantastic presents. I love her! Yes, it's a she. I think I'll name her Marla.
