Something is missing…
[I’m still mad about the damage the porch painters did to our cork floors! The replacement tiles are not sun worn or showing any signs of color change..]
And in its place…
A new bond was formed!!!!!!!!! My life-long dream is to have a fridge-top, freezer-bottom appliance. Just like the Barefoot Contessa. We were partially spoiled at our last house when we had a french door fridge and I learned how wonderful it was to see my food at eye level. So when Matt and I bought this house, we set up a side savings allotment to save for a new fridge + stove [stove = need because our current one is as basic as they come; fridge = pure want].
This month we reached our goal and cashed in! This Samsung Stainless Energystar was actually $500 cheaper than we saved – including 10% off at Lowes this week on all major appliances! Hint: the stove is coming later!
Our previous fridge was nice, but still the old-fashioned style. At the moment it is a beer fridge, but we might Craigslist it…the brewer is still deciding what his dream brewery is. Is we do sell it, even more $ saved!
I spent a while this morning arranging food, cleaning shelves (new and old fridge gunk), and removing stickers. GAH why are stickers so annoying in 2012 when there are so many cool stickers out there!? Luckily my Scour Off takes them off well.
I worked on house stuff for a while and then sat down to do blog stuff for a while and it was 1pm and I wasn’t hungry, but I was getting nausea. I’m not one to forget to eat, but pregnancy is throwing me a twist.
Luckily I found some good eats IN OUR FRIDGE (!) and felt better after lunch on the porch.
I made an egg, cheese + jalapeno sammie
With pear on the side
And a pile of salty almonds. Love these.
Honestly, tea to drink.
2.5 hours later, and I’m already thinking about a snack!
Back to the fridge..
