Those with weak stomachs and clean houses, please look away.
This is the state of my kitchen! Ack! My oven door broke. Of course it couldn't be easy getting a new one. Oh, no. I had a drop-in stove, meaning my cabinets were custom made for this thing to just, well, drop-in. Now stoves of this variety are not as popular as they were when my home was built, and the only ones made won't fit into my cabinet space and cost an arm and a leg. So now I'm not only getting a new stove, I'm getting new countertops, too. I know, I should be more excited and happy, but I'm not fond of sudden change, and all the quick decisions that come with it. Dh and I went to Lowes and picked out the new stove and ordered the new countertops, but it just didn't have the air of excitement it should have...you know how it is, with the kids running around, needing to go potty, just got to have one more sip of water, hey come here and look at this. I guess I just wish it was more of a planned and thought out mission than the rush job it turned out to be.
All that said, I am happy with what we are getting! I actually do have the new stove now. Here it is.
It is black and white, something I've never seen before. Oh wait, yes I have...
Here, on my Mimi. Just like my new stove, the Mimi II. Both black on top, white in the middle, black legs and white feet. Too cute.
Here is dh cutting away at my cabinets to make room for the new slide-in stove, a.k.a. the Mimi II.
Here is the cavernous hole in my kitchen, awaiting the new countertops so the new stove can slide in.
Here is what I will be using to make dinner with for a while. :)
