Fellow moms (and a lot of dads for that matter), you know how it is. You want something really badly, but you just never get around to getting it for yourself. It’s so much funner to buy things for your spouse, kids, and cats!
That’s the way it has been for me when it comes to the Hamilton Beach Power Deluxe 6 Speed Hand/Stand Mixer. I’ve wanted a stand alone mixer for just about as long as I can remember. I tend to especially remember my great desire when I’m cooking/baking and desperately wishing for a second set of hands.
I also find myself wanting one in the worst way when beating something that takes a great deal of time (egg whites, divinity, some fudge).
Thanks to my oldest daughter, Emily, I no longer have to wish, I simply have to go to the bakers rack and get mine down. Em and I were shopping a few days ago and she coyly lured me to the kitchen appliances (it never takes much effort to get me THERE). She pointed out the Hamilton Beach Power Deluxes on the shelf and asked, “If you were going to buy one, which color would you buy?” While I loved the black and the white muchly, my St. Louis Cardinal’s heart said, “Red!”
Then she proceeds to grab the box (there was only one red left) and places it in the cart. Her smile told me that it was, indeed, mine now and I had to refrain from doing a happy dance right there in the store – not that it would have embarrassed her, she’d have simply danced with me, but if word got back to my younger daughters, I’d never hear the end of it.
My dear, beautiful, intelligent, witty, sweet, and charming daughter allowed me to take it home with me – which is a good thing, I didn’t want to have to wrestle her for it. Why wait a week when you can play with your new toy right away?!
If you, like me, have been wanting one of these beauties for a long time, you have two choices:
- Buy it today! If you tend to put your loved ones ahead of yourself, think of it this way: Who will you be making all the cakes, cookies, rolls, and candy for anyway?!
- Do some heavy duty, masterful, ninja-like hinting. You have a few days left before Mother’s Day. As for you baking Fathers, you have plenty of time to start raining hints before Father’s Day.
