Making a House a Home

You’ve come to know that Julio & I are moving slowly into our new home. This has been a dream of ours for so long now, and it is finally starting to come true. Though it has been very stressful, we wouldn’t change it for the world. You have to experience stress to get what you want in a home. We have been blessed to find a home that doesn’t need much work doing to it, but as always, there are a couple of things that we need to change to make it absolutely perfect. The garage is one of these things. Julio and I have wanted someplace to store our cars for so long and when we learned that this house has a garage, it felt almost too good to be true. It needs some renovations doing to it though, and we should start by getting in touch with somewhere similar to this Milwaukee Concrete Garage Slabs company who can install sufficient flooring to the space. We’ve heard that concrete is the best material to have for your garage floor so this is definitely something that we will be looking into. However, this is just one of many things that we need to think about.

So, along with the excitement, it’s also a time to start thinking about filling our new space with those coveted items I have always wanted, but never had the space for. I am someone who loves to be in the kitchen, so I thought it was the perfect time to share my kitchen wishlist. Not only will these items be on my letter to Santa, but will help me create amazing memories for our growing family.

First and foremost, the iconic red KitchenAid Custom Stand Mixer is one of those items that I have coveted for as long as I can remember. But did you know that the KitchenAid ® Artisan ® Mini Stand Mixer features the same power as the classic, but is 25% lighter and 20% smaller?

It reminds me of what a kitchen should be. I picture myself hosting a cooking show (dream big they say) making delicious food and using it regularly. But in the meantime while I work towards another career goal, I can use it to create delicious meals for friends and family when we move into the new space.

As a coffee lover, I have had a lot of coffee machines in my lifetime, from cheap things to machines from Rancilio and others. I love my Starbucks Canada, obviously, but when I am knee deep in work and need to lock myself in our new office, the KitchenAid ® Siphon Coffee Brewer is perfect! Kadeisha recently attended a #StarbucksAtHome event and got the see this must have in person. Needless to say you’ll be seeing it in our kitchen photos when we get settled after hearing how amazing it was!

The KitchenAid ® Siphon Coffee Brewer is one of the most beautiful counter-top appliances I have ever seen. “It automates the manual vacuum brewer process to deliver a bright, rich cup of coffee in the convenience of your home.” How beautiful would the modern design be in your home? I’m obsessed! With reusable stainless steel and cloth filters allow for different textured coffee and are easy to rinse clean, no disposable filters required. A win-win situation for everyone in my opinion. All I need to go with it is my favourite Starbucks coffee and I’m set!

So we’ve got mixing done. Coffee is brewing. But is it really a kitchen in 2017 without an amazing blender? The KitchenAid ® Professional Series Blender with Thermal Control Jar is the ultimate tool for making healthy, nutritious eating easy. “With three pre-set Adapti-Blend™ Recipe Programs to blends tough ingredients like whole fruits, nuts and seeds quickly without bogging down so you can create everything from fruit and veggie smoothies to smooth juices, nut butters, dressings and more.”

Three small appliances will help to make my house a home and will bring my kitchen dreams to life. I hope that I have inspired you to see the potential for your own kitchen and cooking abilities. With the best tools, you can be your best self this holiday season and all year long.
