She's red, she's fast and she's powerful:
She's my KitchenAid stand mixer. Man, I love that thing. I really only rarely use it, but when I do, I get a real kick out of it. She's a Professional Heavy Duty 5Qt baby with bowl lift feature. I highly recommend the extra $$$ for this one (or any of the profesional series).
I've also mentioned my love of Fiestaware. The Evil Twin is lucky enough to work with people who have ties all over with different WV businesses and sometimes, they turn up with perks. Sometimes, he is (we are, I am) the beneficiary of said perks:

Next up on the list is a new addition to the family, but you better believe that I will be enjoying my morning java with this sweet mug:
It's big, too. I should get quite a jolt. (The company, Our Name is Mud, also sells one that states "Proud to be a Bleeding Heart Liberal" - equal opportunity bigotry and all that, you know... LOL).
UPDATED: I forgot about this - and this one is truly one of my favorite things, but Stew likes it too:
It's my retro cherries apron from Jessie Steele. I need to buy the child size one for Sissy. Wouldn't she be an adorable little Mini-Mom in it?

That it's OFF. That's right. No more Dora, Blue's Clues, Spongebob, depressing news, or asinine programming. Just sweet, sweet silence.
In the evenings, it's just me and my little clicky fingers on the laptop keyboard. And maybe a glass of wine or several. But, the important thing is QUIET.
It's one of my most favorite things.
