Yesterday I was grateful for new toys … for mommy! After a pretty rough morning with naughty toddlers, I got to run away and get a haircut and do a little holiday shopping. Had a huge coupon and bought myself the mixer I’ve been wanting for more than a decade. I’ve held off indulging because we’ve had other more pressing needs (and perhaps I should have waited a little bit longer), but it was such a good deal. So, holiday cookies here I come! Isn’t it shiny?
