Laundry Room Ideas

We've begun the design process for our mountain dream home (we're working with Panorama Homes - if anyone out there has something good or bad to say about them, now is the time to tell us!) and I've been trying to narrow down my thousands of photos into one cohesive house plan. In addition to the photos I've saved to Houzz and Pinterest, there are folders and folders of photos saved to my computer, some from before we even knew we would ever be building a house. It's time to weed out the rejects. I'm deleting the photos that aren't right for our new house, but posting them here first.

I'd hate to have deleter's remorse.

A Taco Bummer

Driving home last night, I noticed a new, scrumptious-looking banner outside my local Del Taco.

Turkey Tacos = Healthy (Right?) (Look at all the tomatoes, onions, and lettuce on top. Of course these are healthy, silly!)
I remembered that Del Tacohad emailed me a coupon to try their new Jennie-O turkey tacos for free. You can get one too via their website.
Yay!

Waiting my turn in the Del Taco drive-thru, I was thankful that Sexy Nerd wasn't joining me. Heaven help us if he ever discovers there's such a thing as saguaro cactus lights!He would have them inside and outside our house.
Sexy Nerd is obsessed with cactus. It's horrible.

In addition to my free turkey taco, I decided to order something called a bacon quesadilla, which was less than a dollar. How have I gone more than 30 years without ever trying such a delicious-sounding thing?
I would normally dig right into my tasty food and devour it while driving home. Last night, however, I decided to try this weird "being pat…

7-Eleven

Today, it has been ELEVEN YEARS (!!!) since Sexy Nerd and I had our first date and SEVEN YEARS (already?!) since our wedding. Crazy, right?

At work yesterday, my boss and I were sitting around chatting (and working very hard, obviously) when my coworker, Marie, exclaimed "Hell is going to freeze over tonight!" She went on to explain that she'd just seen my husband walk past our office window and he was carrying a Frappuccino.

"No way," I told her. "It must have been someone else." Sexy Nerd goes above and beyond with many things in his life, but romantic gestures have never been one of them.

To my astonishment (to the astonishment of everyone in my office, really) it actually was my Sexy Nerd and he actually had brought me a Frappuccino, just because. It was even Salted Caramel Mocha - my favorite!

Now, before you give him too much credit, he told me (in complete seriousness) that he reckons he scored enough points with this spur-of-the-moment nicene…

Floor Plan for Our Mountain Dream Home

We're really building this!

(Pending the upcoming meeting with our designer and our builder, but I think they're going to love it. How could they possibly not love it? It's perfect!)

After 3 years of meticulous computer floor plans, I finally figured out that the best strategy is to treat each room like one of those magnetic poetry kits, shuffling and rearranging until everything fits in harmony.

The mandatory but boring details, like where to put the central vacuum and 'his' closet can be squeezed in later.

Pink scribbles = kick @ss party lights 
I'd have a more detailed plan to share with you now, drawn up on Sexy Nerd's fancy home design software, but Sexy Nerd has recently developed a Sim City addiction and says he will do it tomorrow.

That's fine, Sexy Nerd. It's only our DREAM HOME, not one of those little phoney baloney Sim residences, but whatever.
