Home Tour Tuesday

Good Morning Y'all!! Mercy, I feel like I am outta the loop. It's taking all I have to blog much less blog hop. I have had some things going on that weren't planned and now I'm trying to get ready for a 6 day trip, kids out of school, holidays and LIFE! Please forgive me :(



Shannon and I are thrilled to have you all joined us for our 2nd week of HTT! We are working on some good topics that you will not want to miss!!

Home Tour Tuesday-
"Two things in the house I am thankful for"

I must say this was rather "hard" for me.
I love everything and need so many "things" and feel I may die without them all!
I first decided on my corkscrew & coffee pot(s)
Well, then my dishwasher decided it wasn't going to live after yesterday so........
the corkscrew flew out the window.


#1 my dishwasher
see my pots on top? grrrrrr I handwashed everything and then stuck it all in so the hot water could hopefully "wash the residue" off that I couldn't get via HAND WASHING!
{the door won't open to let the cleaner out & is cleaning about 8%}

I looked at it this way.....
I can buy wine with a screw top before I can handwash dishes:)

#2 my coffee pot(s)
we have to have 2....
i fix one with the kreuig 
while the bunn brews...
it's funny how i never realized just how long 3 min really is....
sad that i can't wait 3 min & have to have it instantly!!
we really are spoiled with technology these days

so, as you can see, i am a little ocd...
i do this with the pot/cup/spoon 
every.single.night.
the minutes in the morning really matter!
and you can see we all have our favorite cups-
whole foods: me
starbucks: the mr
be blessed: mini-me

LINK UP GIRLS AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!

  1. Hooray! It's up! I felt so bad (and worried) that it was giving you fits. That darn Mr. Linky! So funny that you have several coffee pots! I'm not a coffee drinker, just never got used to the taste, but Hubs can't live without his morning cup of Joe. Oh, forgot about my dishwasher...definitely a favorite...

  2. read shannon's comment of not drinking coffee...haha she doesn't know what she's missing. granted i didn't start drinking it until after i had baby #3...so i guess there is hope for her yet!

    i do love the invention of dishwashers....i just had mine! :o) i hope it dies b/c hubs hates it too and instead of fixing he promised for a new one

  4. I've NEVER had a dishwasher! Can you imagine?!?!? (well... yes, now you can!) I have Fiestaware, and it's really heavy and hard to hand-wash sometimes (especially the mixing bowls). Dishwasher is on my wishlist when we move this summer!

  5. Yes, I am thankful for the dishwasher, I have lived without one, and it is so much nicer to have one. I am also very thankful for Tivo.

  6. Our dishwasher died about 2 months ago and I have been handwashing ever since. It is HORRIBLE. I never manage to get everything washed. My sink is constantly full, my hands are constantly chapped and my nails are peeling. (I'm a bit whiney about it right now.) Luckily M's mom is getting up a brand spankin' new one for Christmas! Very Very thankful!

  8. We have two coffee pots as well! The hubby likes to brew coffee when he is home in the morning. I can't wait that long, I like my Keurig. But, we are spoiled aren't we. Have a great holiday!

  11. I so agree with you on the minutes..I always make sure I do everything at night so when I wake up all I have to do is press on the coffee maker! haha

  12. I love that you lay the spoon and cup out the night before :) I am laughing because I do that for my hubby in the morning too. I think we should all be greatful for our dishwashers. Have a great day.
