I'm gonna wash that man right outta my....kitchen?

Christmas came early this year!
Steve broke the cardinal rule of never buying a woman a gift that plugs in.
 But, i don't care.
Because I love it!


That's right, I got my very own dishwasher!!

 To most of you modern girls, I know this is not big deal.
However, my house was built in the 20's remember?
Although, the kitchen is a decent size, a dishwasher never found it's way in there.
Since moving in we have upgraded the fridge and sink prior to purchasing this little treasure.

When my husband told me he had a present in mind, but wanted my approval before he ordered it, I got a little suspicious.
I assumed it was the surround sound he has been wanting, or a new flat screen for the bedroom.
I must say I was pleasantly surprised when he showed me what he planned to buy.


It has been almost a year since we bought our house and one of the first things I thought we would do was install a dishwasher, but sadly it fell to the bottom of our list.
It also took some convincing on my part, along with a little help from  the HGTV show Property Virgins.
I had mentioned to Steve that I really wanted to get a dishwasher numerous times.
He went down the list of reasons why I should just live without one.
 I came to the conclusion that I washed the dishes about 90% of the time and he just didn't grasp how annoying it was to wash every single butter knife, fork and spoon we owned.

A few weeks ago we were watching HGTV and the couple shopping for a new home ended up settling on a cute little craftsmen house.
It needed a few improvements, just like ours did.
 The show did a follow up on the couple a few weeks after they settled in to see how they were doing.

The couple showed off their new digs and upgraded kitchen.
The wife pointed to her dishwasher and said " Obviously, the first thing we did was get this, it's a necessity"
The newly wed husband boasted about how important it was they have a dishwasher and he understood why his wife was so pleased with it.
I just sat there on the couch, with my coffee cup, glaring at Steve.

Awww it's so cute and petite

He got the message apparently.
I get the feeling he thinks I am spoiled, but he is slowly learning that what he thinks is spoiled is really just practical!
