Thanks kate. Before I leave from work tonight I plan on printing out this thread so that I can use it to explain my want.

I purchased that same mixer in November for my Christmas gift. At the same price!!! If you can't purchase it now...it will go on sale again. I also purchased it at Kohls and I got $10.00 gift check with every $50.00 I spent. So if you can wait...do. I really paid $150.00 after the gift checks I got.

Are you sure he just isn't saying that so he can surprise you!!!! icon_rolleyes.gif

That would be nice if it was a surprise.
I figured after the 30% extra discount and my employee discount, and even if I purchase it online- I would be paying less than $150 icon_surprised.gif

That would be a great deal mouse! I think my hubby paid $180.00 for my first kitchen aid almost twenty years ago!

m0use,

Just bat your eyes at him!! icon_rolleyes.gif Have him a nice meal ready when he gets home! Explain to him how important it is to you! Add that it will pay for itself sooner or later!

I have burned up one mixer & my hubby wasn't happy w/ me when I did it but he understood about the different consistency of types of cakes, icings etc. You can't make royal icing or color flow w/ a regular mixer/hand mixer & expect it to hold up. It's just too thick. I haven't made any other stuff so I don't know how thick they are.

This is my 2 cents... I will buy it if I want it!! If your not starving your kids, wasting your money on other things you don't need, not taking care of your duties in your marriage (whatever they might be like cleaning, cooking, working outside the home etc..) then I would get one. If you are doing your end of the marriage then buy it!!! If it's not going to put you in financial (did I spell that right? icon_redface.gif ) a bind. If your not using money that is supposed to go somewhere else then buy it! Your husband doesn't need a reason! I do think both partners should agree on a subject but come on... you put 100% into this marriage you deserve something that you want. This mixer will benefit you & your baking!!! Go for it!!

If I sound mean I'm sorry!! Didn't want to come across as mean. I just feel you deserve it!! GOOD LUCK!! thumbs_up.gif I'll talk to him if you want me too!! icon_lol.gif Give him an attitude adjustment like I give my hubby!! icon_surprised.gif

MEN!!!! icon_mad.gificon_mad.gif They are so fickle sometimes!
After telling my husband how much we are saving- I failed to mention the regular price on the machine when I first gave him numbers- he is now thinking that maybe we will get the mixer. I am soooo icon_confused.gif I told him that we are saving almost 150.00 off of the regular price to buy it right now.
So maybe, just maybe I will get it after all icon_biggrin.gif

YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif
I did promise my husband that I would make some money off of my cakes now. So now I have to start spreading around some word of mouth. icon_wink.gif
I'm so happy I got shivers and a couple of tears of joy when my husband said yes. And I told him thank you very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, much; and that I love, love, love, love him. I almost jumped up and down with joy- but since I am at work, I did not feel like getting weird looks from my coworkers. icon_wink.gif
Now I need to hurry up and order it before he changes his mind icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks kate- I will keep your suggestion in mind. I cant' wait to get my mixer and "break" it in. I want to try and make a cake that has that frosting that is a cool whip consistency.
