Thanks for all the supportive comments to my emotional breakdown. I'm feeling much better now; a weekend off will do that. And what better way to spend said weekend off than with a few of my favorite activities - shopping and baking. First came a stop at Target to buy the much longed for KitchenAid mixer. Then a trip to the Christmas Tree Shop (which surprisingly has nothing Christmas tree-like for sale) to buy a little butcher block to put the mixer on. Hey, it was on sale and I can seriously use the extra counter space and cabinet. Then back to my apartment to test my new toy by making a batch of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Yum! Nothing better to cheer up a sad intern than chocolate and peanut butter!

Plans for the rest of the evening include listening to the thunderstorm, matching a movie, and knitting. I love golden weekends!

Oh I am so jealous! I have been wanting one of those for years! I always tell my husband I would bake more if I had one.

I'm glad you're feeling better. Your mixer, new cabinet, and cookies all look great!

Yum, cookies! My KA mixer is starting to sound very sick. Even my husband noticed yesterday, as it whined and complained while kneading bread dough batch #2. I guess I put mine through the wringer, but you've made a wise purchase, because they're awesome! I love the red color, too. Mine is cobalt blue.

I'm so glad you're feeling better.
