For many, many reasons.
But today, I have a few specific reasons:
1. My birthday is less than 2 months away.
2. My Mom wants me to be creative.
3. My Mom reads my blog.
4. My Mom came up for a visit yesterday.
5. She brought my early birthday present with her....
Isn't it pretty?!?!
And yes, I've already used it. We made a batch of Zucchini Bread. It was yummy. I'm sure the new mixer had a lot to do with that.
Hmmmm...what to make next?
