Number next, we had to purchase a new range when ours went out after being moved last summer. Actually, the stove still worked so we went without the oven for about four months and cooked with the stove, grill, crock pot, microwave & toaster oven. When looking for a new range we decided to go with all stainless steel appliances. We thought we would wait to purchase the refrigerator, dishwasher & microwave but again, Nick found a deal. The state had a rebate program going on for a week that gives you 20% back on energy saving appliances, plus Lowe's had a 10% sale, plus Nick's 10% military discount. We went with Whirlpool Gold, which just so happened to match our range. I opted for the french door fridge w/ice & water in the door. Nick will be installing the dishwasher & microwave tomorrow. I've already sold our old dishwasher but am hoping to sell our old fridge too. Here are a few pictures of the new fridge.
Tonight Nick is out shopping for a new faucet. I REALLY want one of those with the pull down head that easily maneuvers around. Over the years we have wasted money on generic types that look like them but don't function like them. Now I want the real deal! I found this one online, it may be what we get.

After the counter tops are installed we have a lot of trim work to do with the cabinets. I still have to pick out tiles for the back splash. I like glass tiles & I like some of the metal looking accent tiles that have fruit embossed on them. I also like what a friend of mine did with her tiles on her range back splash, she painted them all different colors. I know I want an olive green color on the few walls that will show. And we need to schedule a flooring party. So don't not answer your phone we you see our number on your caller ID! *wink*
