I have been entering sweepstakes since 2007 and I have won some fabulous prizes, including all expenses-paid trips, clothes, electronics, housewares, gift cards, and much more. One thing that has always eluded me was something I really, really, really wanted...a KitchenAid Mixer. I've entered every sweepstakes and giveaway I could find to win one. After seven years of entering sweepstakes, I finally won one. But I didn't win just any old KitchenAid Mixer. I won a one-of-a-kind custom-painted KitchenAid Mixer!!! I actually won it by writing this blog post which entered me into the giveaway. I was so excited to win that I was screaming while jumping up and down. My mixer arrived today and I am so in love with it! I can't wait to make something with it. Now I can throw away that old, splintery wooden spoon and the cheap plastic mixing bowl. I have named her Betty and she will come in very handy as I prepare more delicious new recipes to share with you.
