The Place Where I Try To Make Myself Pretty, and Where I Poo

It's been a long while until I've done some more house tours.  And, believe it or not, this week on Kelly's Korner is Show us your bathroom!  I'm going to be quite honest with you, our bathrooms ain't that darn interesting.  But, after all, lots goes on in a bathroom.  In our master, I get ready in the morning , we shower, we take baths, and as the title says...we do our business.  You don't understand, I have a VERY shy bladder and even more shy intestines, so the bathroom is my safe haven! haha...way too much information, huh people? As for the guest bath, the main thing that happens there is that Liliana gets her bath every evening!  When you have the cutest baby ever in a bath everyday, it becomes the best bath you've ever seen.

I've got some before, during, and after photos for you!


 Our master bathroom.  Evan insisted on separate sinks and separate closets in our house.  I insisted on a toilet that had a separate door (remember the shy bladder and intestine thing?).  It was pretty typical and boring, but I had plans...

Guest bathroom.  That LONG counter top has always been somewhat of a mystery to me, but I enjoy the  storage under the vanity area for Liliana's stuff!


Our master bathroom was decorated in green and purple, so I wanted to paint around our jacuzzi tub in a light purple.  I was a little concerned that the husband would be vehemently opposed to it, but fortunately, he gave me the go and when my best friend came in to town to help us move, I took advantage of the extra hands and we got busy painting!

 Two girls saying "DANG we made this look good!"

All done and happy with our finished product!


So here they are...the bathrooms today!

Master Bathroom

 One of my favorite things to do is light those candles and sit in our jacuzzi tub with bubbles all around us! 
So romantic and sweet.

Our sinks (and my private toilet in the distance)!  
As you can probably tell, I LOVE candles. ; )

Guest Bathroom

 My favorite part about our guest bath is my little goodies basket for guests.  I have body spray, lotion, bubble bath, and shower gel in that basket.  People love it!  
When my husband asked me why I have that there once, I took the bottles out and he looked shocked when there was only about half left!  Always treat your guests with little luxuries. 

Well, that's about it!  Hope you enjoyed seeing the bathrooms, and if you weren't interested, sorry you've read all the way to down here! : )  Have a fabulous weekend!  We'll be home enjoying a weekend with company: Grammy has come to town to enjoy quality time with her grandbaby.


  1. Nice! I love that purple color. Gadget Guy would never go for that!

  2. Wait... you poo?!? :p

    I LOVE that purple!

  3. You say you have a shy bladder. For help with recovery, please visit the International Paruresis Association at or take a look at my book - about women with shy bladder.
