I Think I am in Love.....

5.07.2009
With my new washer and dryer. It took a lot of discussion, shopping and compromising but a brand new washer and dryer were delivered this morning. I really wanted the Electrolux in teal that has a light inside the wash drum, but it cost a couple of hundred dollars more and while I could give you a play by play of our conversation about this at the store I am sure you can imagine it. I will give you a hint...it involves spray paint and a flashlight.

So I was practical and while they are not red or teal and don't make cool beeping sounds each time you turn a knob like some of the models we looked at.....I still am so excited that they were delivered to my laundry room this morning.

Before:

After:
So shiny and new....

You know what this means.....the laundry room now moves to the top of the list for a organization and design makeover. It is one of the few rooms left with honey oak and now with snazzy appliances in there that is going to change soon.

I have never really watched how a front loader worked and while it is embarrassing to admit, I spent a better portion of my evening sitting on the laundry room floor being amazed by the washer and how little water it was using. I had to keep wiping forehead prints off the window and I am sure if Derek would have been home to catch in me in the act I would been able to add a humorous picture to give you a visual.

So I after buying new HE detergent to go on my new washer, I did two loads of laundry (I swear I only watched the first one). As I was going to bed I went in to the laundry room one last time to say good-night, I mean to double check that there were still no leaks and I noticed something odd.

What's wrong with this picture (besides the dust of course)??

  1. Hi Jenny! It's Beth. Hope you don't mind that Derek gave me your blog address! It's great! Did you get the water lines switched around? How is the new set working? We bought a Bosch diswasher and love it; it is SOOO quiet! By the way, the white annual is sweet alyssum, and be forewarned! If you plant it in the ground, it will SPREAD! (Learned that the hard way!)
    If you haven't already seen it, check out the digital scrapbook of our trip I sent you; it should be on Derek's home email address. If it didn't come through, let me know. I'll send it again!
    Take care!

  2. Ha! I thought I was the only one who sat and watched a load being washed the first time I used our front loading machines! :)
