Remember when I mentioned that The Hubs is an all-around good guy?   Well, if you need empirical evidence to support that claim, here it is.

Last Friday, I was getting ready to go for a run when The Hubs came into the room wearing a look I’ve come to know all too well.  The look that says he’s done something very kind, but a little extravagant, and he’s hoping one will balance out the other.  He asked me to come into the other room and look at the computer.

The Hubs had bought me this KitchenAid Artisan mixer.  It was an Amazon Gold Box deal, and he got it for a very good price.  But even so, it was expensive.

“You’ve just been working so hard on your blog,” he said, “and you’ve wanted one of these for a really long time.  I thought you deserved it.”

Not only did he buy me the mixer of my dreams, he bought it in Cinnamon–which happens to match my kitchen perfectly.  He did that without even being asked, because I’d never specified a color.  My longing for a KitchenAid mixer was pretty generic, in an “I want one of those someday” kind of way.

So, there you go.  Proof positive that The Hubs is as good as it gets–and I am one lucky Foodie.

Share! It's the right thing to do.

    I'm very excited to put it to work! The Hubs, no doubt, has a very special Father's Day dessert in his future.

    I have had mine for about ten years and was also a gift from Doug, I still love using it. No reason gifts are the best of all!
