The Countdown

You know you're an adult when you're more excited for a refrigerator delivery than you would be for a massive pile of Christmas presents.

But trust me: living in a household with 3 kids and 1 husband and NO FRIDGE for 3 weeks has been less than awesome.

But it has been entertaining... (If you consider walking into the house after an outing only to discover that both you AND your husband forgot to restock the cooler with ice and there is an interesting aroma permeating the air.)

Or, if you're the type of person who enjoys throwing away dozens of condiments, lunch meats and frozen foods because the fridge defrosted.

Maybe you enjoy slipping and sliding across the linoleum when the ice tray turns to water and spills out onto the kitchen floor? I must admit, that has been my favorite activity out of this whole adventure.

But nothing, nothing, nothing compares to how happy my face will be when the delivery man pulls up in my driveway with this baby in his truck:

I have a feeling that my face will be something like this:

 Oh lovely, lovely Whirlpool fridge... Just a few more hours and you will be cooling my milk and creating ice. ICE! I can have ice water again! Cool and refreshing and even FILTERED with your PUR system...

**Updated with me standing in my fridge's CHILLED AIR!! I am so happy! What a great way to start Memorial Day Weekend!



*Disclaimer: I will be reviewing this Whirlpool refrigerator for the next year. Though these posts will be sponsored, all opinions and words will be my own.

Hip-Hip-Hurray for new appliances!! Congratulations on this new addition to your household. Should we send shower gifts of mustard and margarine?

How did you end up with no fridge for 3 weeks?

Lisa Noel said...

OMG! I remember my now husband, then fiance buying me a new vacuum because we needed one and we had just bought our first house together. I could not WAIT to get my hands on that thing and use it! It's the simple things in life that can be so exciting!

Congrats on the new fridge!
