Our new washer and dryer

Some that read our blog may have already seen all the excitement on Facebook, so if so, don't mind me... I just have to share that this morning, we had delivered, a brand-new washer and dryer! They're GE Profile and they're absolutely amaaaaazing! All the bells and whistles...

Just since they were delivered this morning around 9:30, I've washed the following:

• Colors

• 1st load of darks

• 2nd load of darks (Two rubbermaid totes was just a bit much, although each load was gigantic! If I was doing laundry in any other washer and dryer, it would have been FOUR loads of darks! Not even kidding!

• Bath towels (not just a few, either - there were THIRTEEN bath towels, 3 hand towels and 4 washcloths in one load!!! It was awesome!!!)

• Stinky towels and rags from the sink (even bleached 'em so they're extra clean and ran the anti-bacterial dryer setting! Woo!)

• Our big comforter (It's in the dryer now - a) It's the cleanest it's been since we purchased it and b) It's only been in the dryer for 20 minutes, and it's already almost ALL THE WAY DRY!

• 2 sets of bed sheets and pillow cases (All of them! Together! In one load!)

• Whites

In love? Yes! Obsessed...? Maybe... :p


A happy place

So here we are in Washington. Bremerton, Washington, to be exact. New car. New house. New weather. Life is good. It's very different here. Absolutely beautiful though! The Naval Shipyard is an amazing conglomeration of some of the biggest ships I've ever encountered! The Stennis is most definitely a good-sized ship! It was really cool to watch it glide through the water as we stood on the Bremerton Boardwalk. The ferry ride across to Seattle is one of the most amazing things ever! Seriously! If you get the chance, do it! It's free to go to Seattle if you're walking on, and you can take your car there and back for $23.00! We haven't had to take the car across yet, because just walking through all of Pike Street Market is suffice exercise for one day. It's so awesome across the sound. Awesome. There are so many interesting people to see, places to go, and tons of stuff to try/buy! Jake is out to see right now. Hopefully he'll be back by Thanksgiving! Beckham is super excited, because we're planning on going to go see Imagination Movers in December! We've had a little bit of excitement with the wildlife here; the raccoons decided to walk off with all 7 of my miniature pumpkins that were outside for a mere day and half! We're finding our way around the city of Bremerton and the city of Silverdale as well. The kids are ready for some dinner, too bad I don't do seafood, because there is a VERY wide variety of it here in the Puget. :p


Need your votes!

I just entered Holden into a Halloween photo contest in the Kitsap Sun (our local newspaper) and need some votes. If you have a second, will you please go vote for my little sock monkey? It would mean the world to me! Thanks so much!
