Shiny and New

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I love to bake. What? You have noticed? Well, then it won't come as a surprise that I love to buy cooking supplies. In fact, I'd much rather shop for cooking supplies than for clothes. Rest assured, I don't shop mindlessly or aimlessly for kitchen supplies. My sense of financial responsibility kicks in....or maybe it's the limited kitchen space...No, no, I'm certain it's financial responsibility.

Anyway, every so often I let myself get something I've been drooling over. Today was that day. While my heart longs for a Kitchenaid Mixer, I cannot justify such a purchase. Yet. I would use it routinely, but man are they expensive!

My latest item of interest was rectangle measuring spoons. I petted them at Macy's a couple months ago. They're from Martha Stewart's line. Anyway, I told myself that I needed to wait that day. Today, with a little extra cash, I raced straight away to Macy's. Okay, I ran some errands, had some lunch, and then went to Macy's.

I was giddy.
I was excited.
I was nervous that I would buy waaaaaay more than the measuring spoons.

I can't help it. My heart goes pitter patter when I'm in kitchen supplies. So here is my confession: I walked out with more than the measuring spoons. I bought a stainless steel measuring cup set too. Nevermind that this makes my third set of measuring spoons and measuring cups. They each are different and have their own purpose. And let's just be honest: there are days when I cook a lot and I don't want to wash them and I certainly can't wait for a half-full dishwasher to run.

But this rectangle set of spoons will fit where my others will not and they're beautiful. I love them and I won't apologize for allowing them to enter my life. In fact, I'll dance and sing in their honor.

Hello, my pretties. I'll love you forever.
