We have been looking for a new stove for what seems like forever and last week we finally narrowed down our choices to two different models, a Frigidaire and a GE. I always have to shop around at different stores to make absolute 100% sure that whatever we purchase is EXACTLY what I want…so we went to 3 different stores and thought we had our minds made up until we found out that an Extreme Warehouse Sale was going to be held this past weekend.
Bob and I ventured out midafternoon (after I woke up from work) and were excited to find the GE, which had been our 2nd choice, on sale for over 200 dollars off! We bought it on the spot…nothing gets me excited like a good sale! We got a good laugh because at the warehouse, they must have been expecting huge lines and they had a massive banner up that said ‘Thank you for your EXTREME patience’….for all of you who know my dad understand and we of course called him and shared a few laughs (and I am still kicking myself that I didn’t snap a picture!)
So we brought the stove home and it sat in the garage for 3 days while we had to wait for the energy company to come out and install a gas line (who knew that my Mr. Fix-It isn’t allowed to run gas lines!?)
It was pure torture…those beautiful 5 burners, convection oven, and shiny stainless steel sitting in the garage. I was aching to bake…
But first things first, our hand-me down stove got pulled from the wall…
and I have never been so excited to clean up a mess just because I knew that our new beauty was going to sit there!
(In hopes of not having to take back our old stove we put it on the side of the road in front of our house….)
and the next morning it was GONE!
I was practically drooling with this sitting in our kitchen and was so excited knowing that the installation guy was going to come while I was asleep I woke up at noon just to check it out!
LOVE LOVE it!
I cannot wait to start baking….and first I think I am going to make Snickerdoodle Bread!
I am so thankful for a husband who puts my
needs wants first and lets me decorate, paint, and buys me beautiful kitchen appliances!
Finally, a very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful mother!
