Slabs and fridges

They finally poured our slab for our house!! Whoo hoo. :)

I made Dave wash his hands at our kitchen sink.
He thought it was a pretty dumb idea.
(Can't you tell by the look on his face??)

We also bought our refrigerator the other night from Home Depot. We splurged a little, I must admit. However, we got it on a great sale (around 25% off), and I find it necessary to consider the fact that my parents are still using the same refrigerator they bought when they built their house back around 13 years ago. I think about that, and I'm like, wow, I'm going to have to live with this appliance for a LONG time. Might as well make it something I like. Here was our final choice:

The LG LMX25981ST

Supposedly french door fridges are more efficient and have fewer problems with the ice makers than do side-by-sides. They also allow you to fit in larger items such as platters that may be a tight squeeze in a side-by-side. This one has two drawers for the freezer, so we won't be digging through stacks of items when we're looking for that tub of rocky road ice cream. It also has a sweet ice and water dispenser that allows larger items, even pitchers, to fit under it. It is nice and spacious on the inside with an efficient layout. An it's stainless steel, which we needed to match our other appliances.

I told Dave I'm somewhat grateful that we're getting our other kitchen appliances through the builder. (Basic appliances are included with the price of the house, then we paid extra for a few upgrades.) It took us quite a while to decide on a fridge...I can't imagine if we also had to pick out a microwave, a dishwasher, and a stove. We'd be shopping for months. It'd be exhausting. To all you home improvement people who redo your entire kitchens...kudos to you!!

Hope everyone's having a great day!


  1. Nice fridge! We redid our kitchen, but kept the apliances. Except we got a new microwave. I thought it was stressful trying to find the best microwave, so I'm glad we didn't have to do all the appliances at once too!

  2. Great pick! I'm glad you guys were able to find a good one :)

  3. I really like this fridge. The exterior of the refrigerator comes in a stainless steel color. The accessories of the refrigerators include freezer basket, gallon door bin, humidity controlled crisper, deli drawer and ice bin. It comes equipped with a lovely ice-maker.
