Here are five things that made me smile this week.
1. Mixer. Ever since I have had a kitchen of my own I have asked for a stand mixer for every birthday and Christmas. I’ve burned out the motors on a couple of hand mixers because they simply were not strong enough to mix up cookie dough. Guess what Stephen got for me this last Christmas!? My awesome red Kitchenaid mixer! 🙂 I LOVE it!
2. Soap. Have you ever made soap before? I tried it for the first time this week and it is a lot of fun. It has such a yummy smell and the shea butter is so creamy. Note to self: Next time buy a real mold so they don’t turn out to be such a funky size. Note to reader: Please overlook my not so nice handwriting.
4. Patient and flexible Hubby. I’m so glad that Stephen humors me when I delve into little projects like making soap instead of doing more important things like….cleaning the bathroom or making dinner sometime before 8 pm.
5. Big boys and their toys. Stephen just got a log splitter this week and he is super excited about it. That big bad machine weighs 360 lbs and comes unassembled. When they loaded it onto the trailer with a forklift I was a little worried about how we would get it off the trailer. Lets just say I got quite the arm work out while trying to help Stephen put it together.
So what made you smile this week?
