{get REAL} in the kitchen

It's BACK!!!! Sorry for the long break. I feel like a broken record to keep saying this, but...things are crazy BUSY with summer wedding invites.

{get REAL} sharing snapshots of your own simple. everyday. life. moments

This week :: Your favorite item(s) in the kitchen

My hubby got me a RED Kitchen Aid mixer for Christmas a couple years ago and I LOVE having it out on my counter. I'll be {REAL} and tell you that I don't use it nearly often enough! Maybe this summer I'll find some fun new recipes. For now, I guess it's just "eye candy" in my kitchen!

I think this corner by the sink and window is the perfect spot for it. I'll be {REAL} again, and tell you that it gets splattered with water quite often sitting in this spot by the I did wipe it down a bit before these pictures were taken! Don't mind the ucky countertops. If you read my last post, you know I don't even want to talk about that!!

This glass straw holder is my new favorite...and I use it EVERYDAY when I make my glass after glass of ice water with lemon! Sooo good! I also love my little metal Pampered Chef spatula. You can see it peeking out of the can beside the mixer in the above pictures. I use that little jem for everything!!

If you're new to {get REAL} challenges, here are the first four:

  4. I'd love to get my hands on a green KitchenAid. I have green Rachel Ray pots and pans. I'll have to do a get real post with pics of them.

    And I'm so glad that you had to wipe down your counters first because I totally would have had to do the same.


I LOVE reading comments, so thanks for stopping by :)
