Even I can't believe my luck...

Do you remember how freakin' excited I was about my great find the other day? Well, take that excitement and multiply it times ten!!

I went downstairs early this morning to clean up the mess Stud and his buddy left from hanging out last night. I saw my new toy sitting on the island, still in it's box and figured, since I'm washing dishes anyway, why not open it and give it a quick wash.

I opened the box and saw this:
"What the hell is that?" I wondered. Well, hot damn!!! Look at what it was!!!!
A Little Dipper!!!! I'm getting all excited again just writing about it! Apparently, I didn't really look at the box when I bought it.Here's my beautiful new crockpot.
And, here is Mama and Baby. Aren't they adorable!? I can NOT believe a snagged the BOTH of them for 7 bucks!!! Woo hoo!
Just for shits and giggles, I used my black and stainless coffee cup today. Yes, I am fully aware of the fact that I'm a dork, thanks for asking!
I took a quick glance around at all the other things in my kitchen that now match. Here's my espresso maker, and next to it, in the corner, my thermal coffee carafes. Oh, and I just noticed my papertowel holder matches, too. Now I'm wishing I had picked up the black coffee pot instead of the white. :(

My Jack LaLanne Power Juicer,And, last, but CERTAINLY not least, my Keurig machine!I almost wish I would have listened to my brother when he tried to convince me to get stainless appliances. I just couldn't see spending the extra money on appliances for the kitchen in my basement. But, they sure would have looked nice...

Oh, M, don't be such a wuss! It's actually really nice this weekend! I don't even have a coat on! ;-)

It all looks great. I'm jealous. Our kitchen has no surfaces, literally, so there's a limit to the amount of appliances we can have.

Do you even have any counter space left???? ;)
Love the lil' baby...I would use that for making crock pot dinners for my cats. LOL.
Or maybe some of that sausage cheese dip the husband loves. Maybe I need one???
