How was your weekend?
Ours was crazy busy. We shopped and shopped for a new range/stove. Wow! So stressful!

We did our research last week, read a thousand reviews, I mean, lets face it, we don't want to be buying a new stove every year, as a matter of fact, the one that just went out we only had it for five years. They sure don't make appliances like they used to. My mom had the same stove for over 20 years and still working just fine.

My blogger friend Diana from Nana Diana emailed me and advised me to take a look at Consumer Reports before we made the purchase. I followed her advice and were able to get a clear look at what would be the best choice. 
Thank you, Diana!

The stoves with the best reviews, all four and five stars, were the Whirlpool Gold series and, at the same time, 
we also liked very much the clean and modern lines.
We opted to buy the one with the double oven, since we believe it will better meet our needs.

 So here we went, in search of this particular stove, but it couldn't be that easy, of course NOT. 
Every store we went to this stove was on back order. Unbelievable!!!
After searching all weekend, we were finally able to find it at Best Buy and it will be delivered this coming Wednesday.
What a relief!

 Ok, enough stove talk! :)
 Are you guys ready for another fun party?
Can't wait to see what projects you have been working on this week!  You can link up any posts that are home decor, gardening, crafting, painting, sewing, cooking,or DIY related.

  1. Hi Maria Elena, look at that...first one at the party! :) I wasn't able to link the past weeks, we were on vacation. Diana is a smart lady, Consumer Report is the best guide when looking for appliances, the one in the picture is really nice!
    Thanks for hosting.

  2. Love your choice Maria Elena!!!! I knew whirlpool would be a great brand! Thanks for hosting!

  3. Hi Maria! Always a fun party and I'm so glad I can party with you today.
    Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,

  10. What a great stove...with two ovens! This has to be the best of all worlds in the kitchen. You get two ovens, but have not lost any wall space.

    Thanks for hosting the party each week. I look forward to partying with you every week. Now I'm off to see what others have to share.


  11. Thanks for hosting, it's always a great party! Good luck with your new stove! We recently had to replace our dishwasher and stove after about 10 years...of course, the one appliance (fridge) that I have always wanted to replace, will not quit! Figures! ;)

  12. I think you will really enjoy the double oven, but the lower oven does look really low. We have the double wall oven, and I just love it. We had the glass top stove in our last home, and while it is easier to clean, I love cooking on my gas stove top. The glass stove top stays hot for quite awhile, so it's great for keeping food warm. Enjoy!

  13. Thanks so much for hosting and letting me join in.

  14. Thanks for hosting! Wishing you a happy week! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
