New appliances

Day 10 of 31.

I made a quick video of how I cover my note pads. I use a ton of these suckers and I just like to have things around me look pretty. So I prettied them up a bit. I did show these last year on my blog, but not a video tutorial on how I did them.

When the papers for the note pad tops came out of my Xyron, I just had to take a picture. I found them to be so pretty, all together like this.

Whats that you say? Why is the stove in the dinning room. And to that I answer, because it is easier to serve the food right out of the oven this way.
You may ask, Why is your fridge in the living room? And to that I answer because you don't have to go very far to get your drink and a snack when you are watching the television. Well the real reason is because our new Appliances came today!!!!!!
Hubby was like, Please don't take pictures of them carrying the stuff into the house. LOL. Here is the new stove. Isn't it pretty. It is all push button, kind of like a computer. How long can I use the excuse that I don't know how to work it before Hubby catches on, lol.

Here is the refrigerator. I wanted one with the water and ice despenser, but we didnt' have a water source. But I bet we could have just got a longer tube. Oh well. I came home and Hubby put the stuff onto the new one. I think I may be removing this, as it looks cluttered. Yes that is a strawberry pig sitting on the top of the fridge. I bought that for Hubby one year. We put all our loonies and toonies in there to help save for family vacations. That sucker can hold a lot of loot.Onto my day:

Funny story. Kristy's friend was picking her up this morning so I was watching out the window for her ride. She was telling me about certain classes and about some of her classmates. Then out of the blue she says. : Lee Vong. "I ask her is that a girl in your English class?" She looks at me funny. So I ask "Is she oriental" She looks at me like a grew and horn out of my head. What I ask.
Kristy tells me, "Allison (her friend) texted her that they were "leavong" she spelt it wrong.

I laughed so hard, I couldn't stop. Then Kristy started laughing at me laughing. She is like mom why are you laughing? Because I am an idiot. I reply.
So Kristy has been texting me off and on all day about Lee Vong.
I don't know, maybe its a "you had to have been there" type of thing.

Thankful Thursday:

  14. YAY on the new appliances! Your stove looks almost like mine. Yes, you can buy a long length of tubing to connect your water source to the fridge! We did. (I think we got 36 feet of tubing for $10....and it's all hidden, fished through inside the lower cupboards.)

    Have a happy weekend!
