Not much happening thanks to my mind changing itself!

Soooo....we haven't gotten any further than the day we signed the contract, thanks to me!  LOL  At this point i'm DONE with changes because I finally realize im WAY over thinking stuff!

So since there no nothing...  I figured Id share my appliance choices  :)  This excites me ...probably more than it should  :)   What are other bloggers picking?  Share your ideas because this took me forever to decide on after months of research!

First induction range!  (I want the Viking one but its 7k!!  hubby wont go for it...dont know why :)  With this beast you can rapid boil a quart of water in 101 seconds and it stays cool so you can cook with a paper towel between the pot and the cooksurface without it burning!

The Microwave.  (not crazy about it but it seems there are none out there with great might as well match!)

 And the fridge....  we have a great french door Kenmore Elite already that we love...only its white :(  So we will be using that for now untill I can find one I like in Stainless Steel.


  1. Were these the regular stainless appliance package or another upgrade? They are NICE!!

  2. Well some of them are. Like the dishwasher and the microwave. That coupled with a GE double oven (which I loved) was over $3300 as an option. We first had that put in...then did a bit of reaserch and found we can probably get them for much less than that. Plus I REALLY want an Induction range, which RH didn't offer. We had this package plus a fridge that they were charging $1950 for. Over 5k for appliances was just out of our comfort zone. Especially when we would be rolling it in the mortgage and would be paying for them LONG after they have served their time. We have an excellent Sears Outlet down here that we have bought all our other appliances from through the years and they are dirt cheap because its a return (but still new in box), or has a scratch on the side, or something silly like that that we dont care about.

  3. You have pretty sweet appliances and they will look beautiful in your new home. Bet you cannot wait once your house is all done and all yours.

  4. Ya I can't wait till its even started! LOL BUT that is my own fault with my crazy flip flop mind. So glad theres no more changes! ...and only after ...{gulp} 46k in upgrades and special order changes! WHAT...omg now that I see that number I KNOW I must be nuts!!!
