Meeting number three was for appliances.
We are going for the black/silver theme. The black fridge and white washer/dryer will stay. New dishwasher and over-the-range microwave (since both of these appliances have up and died on us in the last six weeks.... fate... she speaks.) The cheapest electric oven I could find..... darn, huh? I wanted to upgrade but I keep banging my head on the budget. It will just have to be a great excuse for not cooking. Elle votes for a fancy microwave that is a convection oven but I kinda had my heart set on a conduction range.... which is only several thousand dollars over my price point.
