Lovely Weekend: Appliance Hunting

Electrolux washer & dryer in Mediterranean blue. In love with this color.

It was another whirlwind weekend. Why does the weekend have to go by so quickly? Husband and I spent a significant amount of time researching and looking at appliances. Blah. So boring. We need to find a washer, dryer, and refrigerator. I've never bought appliances before, so I just feel mostly overwhelmed at the choices. I hate making a bad decision on anything, so I have to research it to death, and then I have to figure out how to make up my mind. It takes forever, but makes me feel like I'm making a more informed choice. I'm hoping to make a decision by tonight. Any suggestions?

On a very happy note, our house will be done this week! I'm hoping we will get to close on Friday and start the move on Saturday. I cannot wait!

Here are a few other weekend highlights:

*Went to dinner with my mom and brother at a new restaurant without the kiddos. The food was delicious. The company was better. (Thanks Husband.)

*Had amazing warm, gooey cookie topped with ice cream at a little dessert place with my mom, brother, and Husband. Super fun.

*Went to dinner with Husband for a much needed date. So nice to have some alone time with my best friend.

*Attended our new church congregation. Everyone was so friendly. I'm really excited to meet new people.

*Had a lovely Sunday dinner with family. Love family time the most.

*Checked on the house three times. Cabinets and counters in, hardwood floors in, tile in bathrooms. Ecstatic.

It's going to be a crazy week around here, too. Getting ready to move and picking up much needed small items like shelf paper/liner, some new cleaning supplies, and much more.

Hope you had a lovely weekend as well.
Wishing you a happy and productive week ahead!


  1. Good luck with your house move. I kinda wish my dryer and washer would go out so I had an excuse to get those new ones like in your picture. .... Hmmm... your Word of Wisdom title makes me think you might be LDS? I am. I'm going to look around. Found you on SITS today.

  2. For what it is worth, we love, love, love our LG washer/dryer.

  3. Congrats on the new house almost being finished! I hope I get to come see it one of these days!

    I don't have a ton of advice on appliances. Our washer/dryer are very old. They work fine, but aren't really anything special. Same with the fridge. Except that I would suggest that with small children, if you're thinking along the lines of stainless steel, I would go with faux stainless steel. It isn't nearly so bad with little smudges and fingerprints. Plus, it's magnetic if you like to hang precious artwork there. I don't, but I still like having a magnetic fridge. Good luck!

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog:) I am the same way when I buy things and hate doing the research. Last thing we bought and over-analyzed was a printer/scanner. Much cheaper than appliances:)
