WooooHoooo!!!! I am soooo excited! For soooo long I have wanted new appliances for my kitchen. They were getting old. The stove and microwave were here when we moved in. I brought the side by side fridge from my other house and we bought the dishwasher new when we moved in about 6 years ago.
Way too many magnets but I have such cute grand kids and they love to color pictures for me.
The appliances were not terrible, just getting old. I longed, and I wished and I prayed.... and they were still here. But then I started to save $$....
We decided to get a new fridge, and it came the day before my sister came for a visit. I was so happy to get it but now my appliances didn't match and the new fridge made the old stuff look really bad. Well, my sister went to open the microwave and broke the handle right off...I could have just kissed her!!!
My husband just laughed and shook his head and said go ahead and get the microwave and a new stove. Well I was in my Tahoe and driving down the street before he could blink...LOL. And this is what I have now!
I really love my new appliances!! It is so fun to have something new. The oven is also a convection oven which is nice...well...when I finally get the guts to try it...LOL. The microwave really says a lot about our society and how we eat. It has a button for popcorn, frozen pizza and chicken nuggets....I had to really laugh at that because my grand daughter reminded me that chickens don't have nuggets!!
They all have buttons and gadgets that my old ones didn't have. I am keeping my owners manuals very close at hand. I also learned that stainless steel shows finger prints a lot more than the standard white. But keeping them clean is worth it. I am so thankful that my husband and I both have good jobs and we were able to pay for them. We paid off our credit cards and cut them up years ago and made a vow to never have credit card debt again. So when we want something we have to work and save. Saving for something is not always easy...but it is so worth it. Since we just got a new washer and dryer a few months ago we should be set for awhile......maybe....I do have my eye on a really cute coffee table...LOL
