adding to the family

Big news!

We're adding to the family!

I'll let that soak in for a bit...







I'm excited to introduce you to our newest member, and no, it isn't a baby... or a dog.
Meet Belvedere. Belvedere has a very specific job here at our house.

She arrived on Friday.

(Yes, that is a paparazzo shot through the blinds. I didn't want the delivery guys to think I am totally crazy.)
Belvedere has taken to our family quickly and is so charming as she whistles while she works.
Here she is in her new home.

Belvedere is our new washing machine and boy is she cool. She uses less water, spins our clothes much dryer, has steam, and holds A LOT of clothes (more than we can dry, actually). I love that I can set a prewash, wash, steam, and even an extra rinse while washing Egan's diapers. I no longer have to remember to start the washer on another cycle (an occurrence that sometimes made for an all day washing affair when I wasn't good at remembering.)
Want to know the most charming part? This is what she sings when she is finished washing. The two clicks you hear is the door unlocking.

I think I'm in love.
I'm even more in love with the fact that we paid 1/2 price for it the day after Thanksgiving. score.
Welcome to the family, Belvedere!


  1. Wow! What a washer! I have to admit, you peaked my interest with your title. :)

  2. Oh my gosh! Too much suspense! Your new washer is so cute, I could pinch it's cheeks!

  3. I've been looking all over for this!
