Y’all. Life is crazy right now.
Let’s start with the fact that Adeline turns one tomorrow.
We are doing her one-year photos tomorrow morning and I am REALLY excited about the girly shoot we have planned. (See my Pinterest board for the inspiration). I have high hopes of getting a bunch of pinwheels made tonight to put in the field where we are taking pictures, but we’ll see. At least I found little white shoes for her to wear.
Next weekend we are having a birthday brunch with a few friends, so I will be doing a lot of crafting this next week to get all the decor done. (The decor theme is pom poms, pennants and pinwheels – click here to see the inspiration)
Then there’s the fact that we let our realtor go, hired a new one and are having new photos shot of our condo today.
And I went to bed with a migraine at 7 last night. Awesome. So I will be cleaning like a mad woman this morning before work. (And by cleaning I mean putting stuff in closets that won’t be seen in the photos – lol).
Our condo will be off the market for a week, which will give us time to breathe, allow me to leave my sewing machine out and get my craft on for the party and do a small remodel in our laundry closet.
Now why would we be remodeling our laundry closet when our house is on the market?
Because I was selected to be a Maytag Mom – AHHHHHH!!!!
So cleaning is not really my thing, but laundry is something I can tolerate. Matthew says that if I am on top of the laundry, I feel on top of the house stuff. If laundry is out of control, everything feels out of control.
He’s probably right. (Right now, I am behind on laundry… sigh.)
Our washer died in April and we bought a refurbished Maytag to get us through selling our condo. Though it is old, the thing runs like new – better than our old one ever did. (A testament to the fact that Maytag products are awesome!)
But our set is mismatched, not very big and just not ideal for a family that creates A LOT of laundry.
As a Maytag Mom, I am going to receive this beautiful Bravos XL washer/dryer set.
I’m freaking out. Never have I been so excited to do laundry.
I fully expect that this will the washer dryer set that will get my kids through high school. That is an incredible thought.
I’m so excited that the hugeness of this washer/dryer set will mean LESS laundry for me because my loads will be able to be much bigger. As a busy working mom, less laundry loads will be awesome.
The dryer also has a “refresh” cycle and since I have been known to leave my laundry sitting in the dryer for a few days, this cycle will help my clothes look like I pulled them out fresh the first time.
Unfortunately, our laundry closet is a bit too small for these Maytag beauties, so we are going to have the dryer venting moved to make things work. And hopefully we will move soon and have a bigger laundry space. (Know anyone looking for a great condo in Nashville?)
So yeah. Children’s birthdays (in addition to Adeline’s first birthday, Elias turns 4 in three weeks- yeow!), a house on the market, and a small remodel for an amazing washer dryer set – life is crazy. We are just taking one day at a time and thanking God for every blessing.
