Do you love your kitchen appliances?

Do you?

Well I do not! I have personally lived in 12 different places in the last 10 years. I have gotten to use a LOT of different appliances and different kitchen layouts. Several haven't had dishwashers, one had a stove that was level on the outside but if you baked in it your cakes were lopsided. Some have been very small and some so big they were worse than the small ones. All these moves taught me several things I wanted when we got our own house.

#1-Pantry (I am short and storing food in cabinets means getting my step stool out), and its a place to store dog food which I wouldn't keep in a kitchen cabinet.

#2-Decent layout as in not having to walk 15 feet from the stove to the fridge...

#3-Gas Stove

#4-Microwave above the stove, leaves LOTS more counter space.

#5-Dishwasher

#6-Someday have a fridge with an ice maker

Well we have our own house but you cant have everything you want right away. I started out with #1, #2, and #5. Those were the really important things the house needed anyways. Well yesterday I purchased #3 and #4! I have been price shopping for months and the Labor Day sale at Sears won. I ended up getting 35% off of my stove and 25% of the microwave, I had a $50 gift card as well so I spent under $700 for both! The stove had to be ordered so we can pick it up August 12th :) And the microwave came home with me and my husband is installing it tomorrow! We still have to have a gas line ran to the kitchen for my stove but my dad is doing that.

I cant wait to have a fully functioning oven with 4 burners that work and lots more counter space from the microwave not being there. As soon as my stove comes I definitely will be sharing photos! :)

This week I feel like its Christmas! Have a WONDERFUL Labor Day Weekend!
