10 reasons why I love my bathroom

We live in a condo in Key West, and there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms that are just about the exact same size. When we moved in, we had the awesome idea to have a girls bathroom and a boys bathroom. After 8 years of marriage and getting in each others' way every morning, it has totally been one of the best ideas we've ever had. I highly recommend it. Here are the 10 reasons I personally love having a girls bathroom and a boys bathroom:

10. We no longer crawl all over each other trying to get ready in the morning.
9. Our razors don't get mixed up.
8. He likes his one bottle of shampoo and one bar of soap; I like my three bottles of hair stuff and numerous shower gels.
7. (This goes along with #8) After running out of soap, Sam no longer smells like a fruity Victoria's Secret flower because he doesn't use my shower gels. He just gets out a new bar of manly man soap.
6. If the TP is out, whose fault is that? Now we can only blame ourselves.
5. When guests come, we have at least one clean bathroom. (You can decide which one that is.)
4. Boys clean their toilet, girls clean their toilet. Aka you mess it up, you clean it up.
3. If you want to leave clothes all over the floor, go ahead. If you want a neat bathroom, great. You get to decide.
2. The literature is so much more interesting.
1. Boys clean their toilet, girls clean their toilet. Aka you mess it up, you clean it up. (I can't stress how great this is!)

That is great for you I think. I was kind of the tom boy, so Jason doesn't have to deal with so much fruity girly stuff. I am sure you love having your own place.

I am all for the boys cleaning their own bathroom! Yuck! :)

Congrats to your Dad's new job!

Can I link your blog on mine?

That is the greatest idea I have ever heard. I wonder how I could convince my husband to jump on a band wagon like that. He likes me stuck in the house cleaning bathrooms all day. YUCK!

Can I guess the literature? Perhaps something by Stephenie Meyer, or a really cool magazine with beautiful furniture. ;)

I want to visit just so that I can use the "Ladies Room!" I just cleaned my bathroom on Friday and it needs it again. I would love my own bathroom!!
