you are thrilled with a new kettle. Seriously as soon as I saw this kettle in the Canadian Tire flyer I knew I was going to get it, nothing was going to come between me and this new kettle.
I mean look at it, isn't it a beaut? First of all it's red and I absolutely adore red, secondly it's by Kitchen Aid so it's good quality and finally it was on sale for a great price of $19.99!

You see I have what is called newapplianceitis - that is by definition a person who wants a new appliance as soon as the one they own starts to no longer look brand new from the store - or when said person sees a new one in the store and gets lost in the shininess of the item, convinced that the features deem paying another pile of money - in fact no matter what the price you just have to have it even though the one you have at home works great, no abnormal wear and tear. Yes, I have newapplianceitis so when I saw this there was no question in my mind that I'd be buying it.
I've been having a bit of an argument with myself. Lately since we have our digital projector hooked up when I turn the t.v. on it goes automatically to the shopping channel - CAUTION - this is a dangerous thing.
Well lately every time it's on, it is showing Wolfgang Puck showcasing his new 28 piece set of stainless steel pots and pans for a great price of $278 and they look freaking amazing. I have been slapping my hands and my DH's - although we do deserve it. I can't remember the last time we bought a new set of pots and pans - ok I do but I don't want to admit to you that it was
