New Appliances

Our new appliances are finally here.  The new refrigerator and dishwasher came in on Friday.  Yay!  It was a little scary because we had a snow storm that day.  But they showed up at about 6:45 pm.  That's dedication.

The fridge looks great.  We haven't quite decided where we want it.  Center it, close to the wall, up against the counter, etc, etc.  But, it looks nice and we're in love so far.  It's huge.  I went to the grocery store on Saturday and only filled about half of it.  Crazy.

And I'm loving the bottom freezer.  J's parents have had a bottom freezer for years and love it.  I see why they do.  I can keep all the things we use a lot on the top shelf and then put frozen veggies, pizza, and dough in the bottom.  Awesome.

And yes those are penguin ice cubes.  J has a thing for penguins.  We still have to move the water line for the ice maker, but that will be pretty easy.  The original line is a million feet long, so all we have to do is drill a hole by the fridge and run the line over there.

The dishwasher also came on Friday.  It's so pretty.  It's a lot smarter then our last one.  The last one had turn dial and really only one option to pick from.  This one has a whole host of things the choose.  It's an energy efficient washer, so it has sensors that sense dirt and then washes them according to how dirty your dishes are.  Great, the dishwasher is now smarter them me.  It's only a matter of time before appliances start taking over the world.

It took us a little to get the dishwasher in.  We had to work around our original 1950s cabinets, which are shallower then modern cabinets.  It was also a very tight squeeze when it came to height, but the manual said it would fit, and with careful instillation, we got it in.

It looks all wonky, but we measured and it's level.  We're going to add some trim around it to close up the gaps.  Which will make me happy because I feel that part of our cabinets needed something.

And the best part, it cleans dishes like you wouldn't believe.  Which is the whole point, right?

Now the only thing left to replace is that stove.  Count your days stove, count your days!
