Well, I am officially no longer in my “early 30’s”. Last Monday was my 37th Birthday. I had a pretty quiet day with the girls, which was great, because Scott and I had been away for the weekend, and I was lazy!
For my Birthday, Scott had asked the girls what they thought I would like as a present. Faith suggested something for the kitchen, which Scott thought was a good idea. He asked her what she thought I’d like, and she said, “maybe a wooden spoon or something like that.” How thoughtful my 5 year old is – a wooden spoon – yippee! Of course, had she bought me a wooden spoon I would have showed nothing but excitement at her thoughtfulness, but luckily Scott and Emma were thinking bigger!
Emma suggested a waffle iron. Not a bad suggestion, however I do wonder if she was really thinking of me and how much I would enjoy waffles, or if it was a little closer to home! Nevertheless, we would have all gotten a great deal of enjoyment out of a waffle iron, but again, Scott was thinking bigger! Yippee for Scott.
So, I am now the proud owner of a KitchenAid mixer! Hooray! It has been something that I have long desired for my kitchen, and it will be greatly loved and given plenty of fun work outs! I have also made it quite clear that when returning to Australia, this item will be non-negotiable in the packing process! Scott has already researched what we need to do to run it – we have to get a large transformer – so I’m thinking that it will be an interesting carry on item for me in the future! Ha!
I didn’t want to cook on my birthday, so Scott and the girls took me to the Cheesecake Factory, which is a favourite of all of ours for special occasions! From the second picture you’ll be able to understand why. The girls are out of focus, but I think you’ll all agree that Scott got the right ingredients in focus in this particular picture! Yummy!
I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of my lovely friends and family from all over the world that sent me birthday wishes. I felt extremely spoiled to receive so many phone calls! I was also very impressed that everyone managed to get the time zone dramas sorted out! Well done! Love, Love, Love to all of you, from Alabama!
