How to design a luxury bathroom for less

luxury bath for less

A couple of weeks ago, I revealed our master bathroom remodel.  It was a water damage issue so it was mostly covered by insurance, but our original bathroom had lower end finishes so we definitely upgraded when we re-did it.  While we did pay for some of it out of pocket based on our choices, we didn't spend very much more.  I thought I'd share how … [Continue reading...]

Master Bathroom Reveal


After two and a half, what felt like forever, months our master bathroom remodel is finished! (Although in retrospect, that's really not that long...but hot dang it felt endless while it was going on.) Because this wasn't a planned remodel (it was due to water damage), I have very few "before" photos.  I literally called insurance on a Monday … [Continue reading...]

Baby Girl Garden Shower


My friend Tracy was pregnant (and I say was because she’s since had her baby, because slacker blogger) with her 7th child.

Curls for Dayyyyzzzz.


The funny thing is that my curly hair has only been wound into ringlets the last few years. Minus, of course, the unfortunate year in the early 90’s when the poodle tight perm was in style.  In retrospect, the Cringe Factor came not from the tight coils themselves so much as from the 6 pounds […]

    I’ve been dying to share about our experience at the Special Olympics, but between Life and then my website being hacked…and then hacked again…I’m woefully behind. In any case, here we are. Her one on one aide and I made sure to coordinate their outfits.  We decided on the school assigned shirt (which […]
