Happy Ho Ho Ho to me!

This year Santa (aka Papa Strahm) brought me a power washer for Christmas. I know, I know, it may seem crazy but I am sure it is going to be my new favorite thing. I am not sure if it is just this pregnancy or what but I have had the need to clean. That doesn't mean that am always cleaning but I can't seem to get things clean enough and I am constantly thinking about how to get rid of every germ in my house.

Early this fall we borrowed a power washer to do our deck before we stained it and I kinda fell in love with the idea of blowing water out of a hose going like 50 miles per hour. I started using the power washer to wash down the outside of my house, garage doors and gutters. I even blew the leaves out of the flower beds with it and watered my plants at the same time. When my Dad asked for some ideas for Christmas gifts I really had no ideas for him. Being preggers, no clothes sounded fun, I am not really into electronics and I have everything I can think that I really need. AHHH, except a power washer!!!! My Dad got a really good one and I can't wait to blow the winter off of everything once spring gets here.







My Top Ten things I want to power wash first:

- My whole driveway


- House and gutters


- You can add a cleaning solution in the hose so I am going to wash all the outsides of my windows


- The inside of my garage


- Might wash the cars from time to time although I do love Rainbow Wash so we will have to see about that. This power washer is also super powerful so I will have to make sure I have the delicate nozzle on for this project.


- Cleaning out Hutch's pool after it has been out all summer


- Washing under Brett's mower before putting it away for winter next year


- Power washing the grill


- Washing out my garbage cans


- We have a little back patio area that gets really dirty and it is hard to sweep up, this will be the perfect solution.





I would love more ideas if any of you had them. If you are ever in need of a power washer, give me a call. I am more than happy to spread the love :) (only if I get to help do it, that is).

this is how i feel about my stihl leaf blower that jas got me for my birthday a few years ago. i use it for about everything. cleaning off mats when vacuuming out the car, blowing off the drive and sidewalks after i mow- it can be used for about everything. when you move to sabetha, mabe we can go into a powerwashing/ blowing business together :)

Oh, that's on my Dad's list of wants. We got an air compressor from my parents last year and Chris uses that thing for many purposes also! You are like me- you like practical Christmas gifts! :-)

The best gift is often the Abercrombie & Fitch we buy ourselves. Not to be unappreciative, but I love shopping way too much to believe someone (even with Dolce & Gabbana Sunglasseslist in hand) could ever do it as well as I do. When buying for ourselves, shopping can be a high. I’ll admit I’m addicted, but don’t think I have a problem. Louis Vuitton SaleI know I know, the first step on the road to recovery is to admit you have a problem, but I just don’t see Christian Louboutin Boots that way. I’m content being a shoeaholic, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
