Laundry Day

I had 2 baskets of laundry to fold yesterday. That’s it. Sometimes the simplest chores are the hardest to accomplish around here!
The girls have always LOVED playing in laundry baskets and ask to get them out and for me to push them around the house in them. Want a serious work out? put two kids (about 55 lbs total) in a laundry basket and push them around a 3200 sq ft house for 30 min! Carpet gives lots of traction so its even harder on the butt and thighs lol. Anyways, I have several pictures on my phone of them playing in the baskets but nothing a photographer can love.
Yesterday was just one of those days when I really could care less if the laundry got folded and put away right away. Hormones are surging with Jackson due any day and I felt really nauseous and weak. So, I have to pick my battles. With toddlers “help” folding clothes, it doesn’t really happen that efficiently anyways. I decided to just sit back and let them fold the clothes while I got the camera out. Having kids is great practice! Here are the pictures. They turned out so much cuter than I predicted!
I had seen people on Pinterest hang pictures in their laundry room so I thought this would be a great fast project! I knew I didn’t want to do just plain ‘ole picture frames so I wondered around Hobby Lobby and came up with this.
Found some wood plaques, painted them green (if you know me, green is pretty much my go-to color (besides white). Its my favorite and I love how lively and pretty it is! Smile) and added picture hangers to the back. I wanted to incorporate clothes pins since they were going in the laundry room, so I used them to hold the pictures. Got my favorite 8 printed at Walgreens and that’s it! I really wanted to have a plaque that said something like “Laundry Day” on it but it didn’t work out at this moment so I may have to add that later.
Hope you like it! I sure do!!
