We are not a gift giving couple, never Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, anniversary gifts... just not our thing, if we want something we just buy it ourselves! BUT I'm super excited about a gift we're giving each other (let's face it, mainly a gift for me!)
A NEW WASHER AND DRYER!!
Woot! Woot! Our NASTY washer & dryer came with the purchase of our house and yes, they're funky but they also don't clean great, rip holes in clothes and the dryer takes 2 hours to dry a load! And with my vacation rental business I wash A LOT of linens, towels, and clothes.
Here's my beauties:
Don't judge! Oh, and the dryer door has to be shut with that little can of dog food because the door is broken.
RIGHT?! So sad and gross... it's TIME!
What year do you think they're from!? 80's? 90's? I can't even tell!
After much research, looks like we're going with:
LG 3.6 cu ft High Efficiency Front Load Washer (White) ENERGY STAR
And the dryer:
I am so so excited to get these bad boys! I can't believe we've even waited this long!
From doing a little googling, apparently the gift giving goes like this:
5 Year Anniversary:
Traditional Anniversary Gift: Wood
modern anniversary gift: silverware
Modern Anniversary Gift: Silverware
And what do you know... before even reading this I hit up an estate sale this morning and scooped up a 75 piece silverware set in flat gold! GOLD!! Place setting for 15 people in GOLD! Did I mention they're gold?! OK, not like solid plated gold but still, they are so fabulous! I'll post a pic of them once I'm home but just had to share in this post because I coincidentally bought our anniversary gift! ha! and for only $25!!! Yippeeee!!!
Oh and if any of you out there absolutely love your new washer and dryer please send me the brand! Still not 100% on these but with over 200 five star reviews they must be good. Do y'all do the whole gift giving thing? Is it weird we don't!?
