Laundry room...

I have a dream of someday having a huge laundry room! One with space to fold clothes, hang clothes and maybe even a sink to wash off the throw up and poop covered clothes! But until that day comes, I will make due with what I have and be thankful for it too.

Here is my current laundry room. It is small. It also doubles as the entrance to our house via the garage.

Here is my problem. I hate laundry. I don't so much mind the putting them in the wash and the dryer part, it is the taking them out and hanging, folding and putting them away part that I just don't like. However, it is something that must be done when you have a family of four. (I say this because when I was single and only had me to care about I would just leave the clothes in the dryer, fluff them up when I needed something and when it was empty that pretty much meant I needed to start another load)

The answer to my problem was to eliminate the steps between taking them out and putting them away. That means take away the laundry basket and the laying them out on the back of the love seat. ;) The solution? A shower rod! I used it today for the first time and WOW was it so much faster and easier to complete the laundry! I am so pumped that it held all the clothes! I just hope I can keep this excitement going as I continue to do laundry, because as we know, it never ends!

Georgetown Cupcakes...

Before heading to D.C. I asked around on facebook for tips of things to do while there. One of my friends suggested Georgetown Cupcakes. I wouldn't have even thought of going there, so I am SO glad that she suggested it. In case you aren't aware, Georgetown Cupcakes is on a TLC show called D.C. Cupcakes.

So on Sunday morning I took a nice little walk down to Georgetown! It was a perfect day for a long walk too.

Something you should know about the cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes is that you will never look at another cupcake the same way. It was the best icing I had ever had! SO yummy, I want one now! After having these cupcakes I went into another cupcake shop and they just didn't look good at all.

Unfortunately on the way home from the shop the cupcakes got knocked around, so the pictures I took don't make them look very good, but trust me, they are amazing!

This was the line I waited in, 40 minutes! FYI if you ever go, order online so you can just walk right in and pick it up. Unless you want the full popular TV show experience. :)
