    i would definately pick the big red mixer and a blender. Mine are old and barely working. Since I’ve lost my job baking and selling cakes has been the only way to support my children, so my appliances are kind of tired. lol Great giveaway! You guys are great 😉

    Dawn Mitchell says

    I follow you on FB! I would probably get baking stuff or kitchen storage. I don’t have very much room for what I do have so the storage would be very nice!

    Pots, pans and a mixer mine are so old it’s embarrassing to cook on them.

    O.M.G. What an AWESOME giveaway! See the thing with the gift card, I could buy ANYTHING! Right now, I’d probably go on to tell you all the things I NEED, but in reality, once I step into that amazing store, I’ll buy all the things I WANT! LOL Shopping etiquette would go out the door the second I see a bright, colorful whirl-a-ma-dingy or a soft, fluffy hug-a-ma-thingy. You know what I’m talking about! 😉
