How Cool Is That?

Last night on the way to niece Jessi's bridal shower, Paul's mom told me she's looking for a KitchenAid mixer. She has a Bosch that she used for years when baking for her family, but now that it's just her she wants something smaller. She checked out KitchenAids in town and they were on sale for $219 which was more than she wanted to spend.

The shower was lovely, a tea organized by Rachel and Rita and Jenn which meant that it was tasteful and pink and beautiful and gracious and delicious.

I sat beside Heidi who runs an espresso stand/lunch cafe'. Halfway through the evening, Heidi turned to me and completely randomly said, "You don't need a KitchenAid mixer, do you?"

I said, "No, but I know someone who does," and of course referred her to Anne.

Anne bought the mixer for $50. Heidi had it in her truck, so they transferred it to the trunk of our car, and Anne took it home.

I love it when things like this happen.

  1. That's a GREAT deal! I usually see them running about $259! I really, really, really want one but can't see myself spending that kind of money on one! Now, $50, I'd jump on that in a heartbeat!

  2. Hey, Connie, where are you? I have one I'd sell for $50! Since I got my bosch, I never use it anymore. Pauline

  3. "How cool is that???" I say that definitely was a real "God-thing"!! He cares about all our needs, even in the kitchen!!

  4. Pauline-I am in the Dallas fort Worth area.

  5. Connie, if you ever get to Oregon...Look me up! I may still have the Kitchen Aid in storage! Pauline
