laundry room

I can't believe it's 3 o'clock already!  Today is flying by because I've been so busy with Spring Cleaning and doing some packing for our upcoming move!  I saw that Traci did a deep cleaning on her Laundry Room this week, so that motivated me to start there too.  My Laundry Room gets neglected.  It's the room where we just leave things that don't really have an official place to be put away. Here's my unorganized and cluttered Laundry Room before...

And, the Laundry Room after.  All better :)

I even went as far as planning out our dinners for this week, and then writing them on the whiteboard in the Laundry Room!  That is a first.

It feels so good to get organized for the week before Monday is here!  Now, I just need to finish up a few more things, and then I can take a nap!!  I love Sundays.

Hope you all have a good rest of your day!


  1. Woohoo looks lovely!
    Dinner planning is part of the kitchen spring cleaning :) You are ahead of the game.
    Cute kids on your bulletin board :)

  2. Well, you rock! Dinners are even planned out?! Just let me know what time to be there! Kidding!

  3. That's funny Lauren! It seems you and I both had the same idea today. Spring cleaning! You cleaned your laundry room, my hubs & I tackled our garage. It was a disaster! After 4 hours of blood, sweat and tears it's spotless and my suv fits inside! It's feels great to get big projects like these done! :) I wish I would have taken a before and after snapshot. That was very bloggy of you!

  4. Wow, your "before" looks like my house right after the cleaning ladies get done. Your "after"? Well, that's an impossible dream around here.

  5. You Rock!!! Can you plan out my dinners?

  6. Wow!! Can I bring you to VA to help clean our house? Glad you had a productive, as well as relaxing weekend.

  7. looks great...and steak quesadillas sound soooo good right now!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
