I Now Own a Viking (or Five)!

No, gentle readers of the blog that is supposed to have sewing related content, I am not referring to this kind of Viking:

But, rather, this kind of Viking:
Oh, yeah baby - that's a 36" open burner range from Viking's Professional Series.  I have always wanted a professional kitchen and I will now have one in the new house.  The only catch was that my new range insisted on bringing along a few friends (vent hood, microwave, fridge and dishwasher):

Last weekend, I shelled out the down payment and they are now waiting to be delivered to the new house next spring/summer.  Other than the blueprints, this is the first purchase that was made for the future abode. 

Can I just say........SQUEEEEE!!

Oh, and for those of you that think that this post was all just a sly cover to brag about my new, awesome Viking appliances, it was. 

So, neener, neener, neener. 

And right now, you should all go to your kitchen and tell your Maytags, Kitchen Aids and Kenmores to kneel before my new appliances in supplication.

Go ahead, I'll wait.

My kitchen says " We're not worthy. We're not worthy."
Happy Thanksgiving from a fellow Canuck.

neener, neener, neener...I have Bosch...guess they only have to bow, not kneel! (well, and an antique Wedgewood stove with a chrome top) You did get me with the Viking reference though...don't remember you saying what kind of sewing machine do you have???

OMG! My Maytag Gemini has run for cover and I've a Thanksgiving Dinner to do! Couldn't wait until after the holiday to announce this?

Seriously, this an amazing start to your new abode. Congrats and enjoy the process of building your new home!

Enjoy!

You know where my mind was - I was expecting to scroll down and see a state of the art sewing machine wonder. Those will work out so fabulously in your new home. I'm sure it will be the kind that we all peer at in magazines or on television and only dream about. I'm sure you deserve them.

ROTFLOL! That is tooo funny! But I'm happy that purchases are being made for the dream abode. And since I live in an apt - you know your appliances FAR exceed mine!

I'm more than a little jealous right now. Both of the shinies AND the house.

Shellie said...

Trudy Callan said...

How exciting. Enjoy!

Debbie Cook said...

Not jealous because I LOVE my kitchen, but very happy for you. And laughing at the neener, neener-ing. :-)

Linda said...

Now if I really wanted to cook and was good at it, I would love to have all of this! Congratulations for being able to get this; I am sure you are going to love it!

Ann's Fashion Studio said...

Vicki said...

Fabulous! Just let me know when the house warming party is and I will put it in my diary :) You will be making some goodies in that kitchen for sure!

Andrea said...

Nice! My sad little apartment kitchen now seems even smaller and more sad. :( lol Enjoy your fabulous new home. I can't wait to see what you do with your sewing space. I'm sure it'll be full of awesome. :)

Lilian said...

I asked my appliances nicely to kneel down in admiration. They won't. Too painfull in the joints, they say. THEY'RE THÁT OLD!
Congratulations with your new kitchen-appliances. I just can't wait to see what your new house is gonna look like. I think it will be amazing.

stacey said...

I have the same Viking appliances except my stove has a griddle down the middle. I love them they are the best mine are about a year old and they have worked great! Mine would like to shake your appliances hands since they are cousins.

Eugenia said...

Congratulations! I am very envious indeed - I think you're going to be cooking up some tasty food with your new Vikings.

Michelle said...

Congratulations!! I would love to have those kinds of vikings, too!!!

lorenakitty said...

Man! That fine steel is not for beginners! My kitchen crappage is in the corner cowering because it's so old the make has been scowered off. Thank goodness I rent and can leave all this behind :-)

Maggie said...

Shannon, you were so smart to go with the top of the line! They will last forever and you will never have to regret having gone with lesser lines!

jacquiJB said...

Definitely SQEEEE-worthy. Congratulations! My kitchen appliances decline to kneel, although they do look up to their larger and more powerful cousins. I am so looking forward to hearing more about your new house. Happy for you, and wishing you a smooth and on-budget build. :)

Being of the if-it-requires-more-than-2-pots-I-won't-make-it persuasion, I say kudos to you.

Now Prince Charming, he who both reads and cooks from Cook's Illustrated, is most jealous.

Living in an all electric part of town, one can only dream of having a gas range. Ahhhh.

Stop showing stove porn this minute! Nice girls don't. Didn't your mamma tell you that?

Chris said...

The Viking's nice but I'm holding out for an Aga! Not really, I'm very jealous.

amber said...
