Spring Bake

I’ve been in spring break mode lately. You might have noticed since I didn’t bake last weekend. I think it’s because I recently went on a vacation which I haven’t done in a couple of years and it felt awesome to just relax and do nothing. And now being back home I can’t stop enjoying the warmth that’s finally taking over. Spring is probably my favorite time of the year. Unfortunately, in the south, you only have about seven minutes to enjoy the season before the hot and humid heat of summer takes over. Okay, okay – I’m exaggerating a little. It probably lasts eleven minutes. ; ) So you’ve got to enjoy all of them while they last. And I’m trying.

Got Spring Fever, too? Take a break with me and enter this sweet Spring Bake Giveaway for a chance to win a KitchenAid Stand Mixer… in one of the following pastel colors. Plus a white and silver choice in case springy isn’t your speed. Me? I have the pink one, but man, that aqua sky is calling my name. And the ice and crystal blue. too. I’m glad I don’t have to choose.

Enter the Spring Bake Giveaway for a chance to win a KitchenAid 5-quart Artisan Series Stand Mixer

  • To enter, just leave a comment on this post answering the following question.
  • What’s your favorite thing to do or place to go on vacation? Oh and pick your pastel, too.

  • One winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime Wednesday evening on this post.

Oh my. My favorite place to go on Vacation is Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas.e
From the crystal blue waters, to the beautiful straw market. The ATLANTIS is just an amazing aquarium full of some of the most spectacular fish, sharks and sea life. The grounds are breathtaking and the acres and acres of tropical trees, waterslides and the ability to parasail, snorkel and explore many of the littler islands around by jet ski is just one of the most amazing trips. The people are so friendly and outgoing and no matter the time of day you always are safe. Fishing on private boats is crazy as you can see down to the bottom of the ocean bed thru the clear blue waters of the ocean. It is Iruly one of the most amazing places on earth.

If I were to be chosen for the Kitchen Aide I would love the PINK one as a reminder of me beating Breast Cancer.
