  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

a laundry bag for scrubs


I wear scrubs six out of every seven days.  Six days a week I wear scrubs and then on Tuesdays my jeans and I have a talk about how my current lifestyle is not without consequences.

I launder my scrubs separately from regular clothing because my nursing school whites require a serious amount of bleach for me to not just burn them at the end of every day, and my burgundy scrubs are covered in baby cooties.

My current method for keeping my scrubs separate from the rest of the laundry has been leaving them on a pile on the floor until I run out of whatever color fits my health care role of the day.  Nic hasn’t been super thrilled about that method of laundry storage.  Enter my new dedicated scrubs laundry bag!  A perfect 15 minute solution in a Sarah Jane border print I love.  It’s not fancy, but it is finished!
