It seems like lately every restroom I visit while out adventuring with my husband looks like this.  Even in neat and clean big box stores I am finding a lack of toilet paper, and precious hand soap.  There is always a sign that says to wash your hands, but not always a method to do so.

Sometimes when I walk into a restroom I am pleasantly surprised to find soap or hand sanitizer.  I even found a bathroom at a gas station with 3 hand sanitizer stations in and outside of the restroom.  I told my husband to remember that one in case we are ever in the area and the urge strikes again.

On the flip side there is a local consignment shop that I have been frequenting every week or so to look for treasures.  I have yet to find a treasure, but I have found that the last two times I was there which were just days apart there was no toilet paper.  Thank goodness for soft-ish paper towels, but it makes me wonder if the bathroom went all those days between without any toilet paper on hand.

I have taken to hoping for the best, and carrying hand sanitizer everywhere I go.  And if you are wondering why bathrooms are so much on my mind, the answer to that is simple...I am pregnant! 


  1. Congratulations, what a blessing!!! Uh, I hate using public restrooms and have noticed the same thing. When I go to the mall I only use Nordstrom's bathroom because it's fairly hygienic. Well I am a new follower via Linky. Happy Blogging! www.questofthenocturnalbaker.blogspot.com

  2. I just came from your blog & am a new follower. I am not sure the mall I go to has a singly hygienic bathroom ... !

  3. Well that's great news ... and yea, I'd rather squat in the woods than in one of those! Stopping in from the hop today … would love a follow via Google+ and GFC … BTW … I could really use some answers to my post today – if you have the time please stop by and comment  thanks! www.shaunanosler.blogspot.com

  6. Hey, there I replied to your sweet comment on my blog. I LOVE YOUR photos

    As for public bathrooms EEK! I will go behind a bush or somewhere rather than use a public restroom. I'm not sure why I have been that way since I was young. I actually carry toilet paper in my car and wipes in my purse. Plus sanitizer and a million other things. So I feel your pain.

    BTW Charleston is so pretty I'm originally from a small town in GA.


  7. @CC - At least downtown Charleston isn't too bad - they have decent public restrooms ;) I did go in Target the other day though and for 6 soap dispensers there was NO SOAP! Good thing for hand sanitizer.
