Oh Santa Baby, I Love You!!

My husband made me cry…like a little girl…I got cooking pots! And a wok! From Pampered Chef!


Ok, so if you are thinking “I would cry if I got cooking pots for Christmas, too”, and you mean that in a not so good way…let show you my old cooking pots.


This is like Extreme Makeover Cookware edition.  I am 41 yrs. old and I have never had my very own, brand new to me, cookware.  Now I do.  My old ones are a hodgepodge of hand me downs from my Mom.  I made mention one day to my hubby, after looking at a Pampered Chef catalog, at my hairstylist’s shop, (he was having a book party) that they had some nice cook pots.  I said I’ve never had any nice cook pots.  He asked if I got any…I said no, they are expensive.  And that was the end of that conversation.  Well, DH called our hairstylist and told him that he needed to know about these cookpots I saw when I was at his shop.  Yep, I’m really, really proud of my cookpots.  And I’m really proud of him, too.

Santa Baby also got me this platter I fell in love with, at a local Christian bookstore. He said it’s the only chicken I’ll be getting this year…lol!


My parents came this morning and just left about an hour ago.  In fact Mom just called to let me know they are almost back to their house.  We had a great time, and since I have DH’s Christmas present quilt still loaded on the longarm, I actually got to show them how it works.  They have seen it before, but I’ve never had anything on that I could actually quilt in front of them. 

Hmmm…maybe I should mention before Christmas next year, that I’ve never had a really nice mixer…. 😉

  1. Oh Randi!! Those are GREAT!!!! You are going to have so much fun with those!!!! Go DH!!! And I love that platter! I’m glad you got to spend the day with your folks! Definitely mention the mixer.. hey… maybe even for your birthday 😉 Merry Christmas!!


  2. Randi, I gave my husband some nice pots and pans one year and he cried too! It was when he had just gotten into cooking a lot and he loved them. This year, my daughter told me that she wanted pots and pans for Christmas, so I let her pick them out and that’s we gave her and her husband for Christmas. I told her I never thought I’d see the day that she would ask for pots and pans for Christmas. It’s amazing how your values change, isn’t it?


  3. I love gifts like that! Your hubby was ultra thoughtful going out of his way like that! My favorite gift is always the thoughtful gift! Merry Christmas friend.


  4. Randi – you will love your new pots – I have them and they are great. Make me look like I can cook!! LOL Kudos to the hubby for being such a great Santa!


  5. Randi – what a wonderful thing for your love to do for you! I love the plate, also. I have one that a dear friend gave me last Christmas with the same verse on it, with “Celebrate” and streamers in the middle. I look at it every morning, and my day is better because of it! Merry Christmas!


  6. Randi, how neat that he was listening to what you really wanted! I like the chicken platter, fun and whimsical design along with a wonderful verse.

    Merry Christmas!


  7. WOW you made out great. I caught up with all your past post and not only am I alittle green with envy over the pots and pans and what you have done with your stash. I am also hungry from looking at all of the good food!
