after all of this waiting and deciding on which kitchen helper i wanted to bring into our family, i finally decided on a BOSCH! i have been waiting for her to arrive and i think she is just as excited to be here as i am. i swear i could hear her calling me from inside the box "Hurry up and get me out of here! I have things to do!" so that is just what i did.

once i quickly dug through all of the packing peanuts (some of which i might add were dissolvable, but not all of them. less than a third! why not do them all?!) i located her exact position in the box. it was time to bring her out and show her our world! ( i know i am a dork, you don't have to tell me that!) WOW, what a great picture of me! whatever... i finally felt like i could get great things done with her.

after all of the excitement in our home, or my head, i can't remember which.... i figured i needed to give her a name. we would be working A LOT together over my next few decades of life, so she needed to have something special. i was thinking it needed to be something memorable, and that i could laugh and cry too. hmmmmmm, gerti or gert for short. i like that.

i will stop talking now and let you see GERT. expect to see great things from her and i, and some failures too i am sure. but hopefully most of all, a lot of fun.


  1. you seriously crack me up. She looks good. Can't wait to see what you guys make together.

  2. Congrats on the new addition to your family. You will absolutely love her. I have had one for the last 5+ years and I love it! Did she come with a blender? The blender is amazing. Well enjoy her and made sure she gets enough exercise, so she doesn't get fat!
