So….I have a little update with the bathroom in Boulder.  This….is why we make the big bucks…. for realz.

Not sure if I told you but the bathroom has to be finished by Thanksgiving.  

Uh Huh.  37 days.

So I prance up to The Tile Shop on Saturday which is a measly 1/8  of a mile from my house.

And that is where it starts to go down hill.  First of all when I left it was sprinkling.  Within 20 minutes of me being in there it turned into a monsoon and the temperature dropped about 20 degrees.

Swear.  But wait….

So he picked this plan.

Which I really liked.  AND….was excited to go pay for it so that Greg could pick it up in Denver and get going.

The sound of a scratching record.  Yeah….found out that the floor tile was “only for walls”  and it was very shinny so no bueno.

OK….let’s regroup.  I can do this….well I had to do it…. because time was crucial.

I stayed with everything but I changed the floor tile.  He loves blue so it is a win win right?


Not in stock and wouldn’t arrive to the distribution center until a week before Thanksgiving.  I almost started crying right there.  I am still a little fragile.

So I left and decided to go to Floor and Decor.  Nada.  Home Depot.  Nada.  Remember it is pouring and I am dressed for summer.  


I drove to my favorite tile place without calling and it was closed.  I slumped in my seat.  Sigh.

Ok back to The Tile Shop.  Geez….I can do this…there is plenty of tile in that place.

After all….I am a professional.

So I went all “Boulder Organic”….I had to go home to let Cami out for a quick bathroom break and I grabbed a few other wallpaper samples….and a coat.

I forgot about this Thibaut paper which is a favorite….

This will be the countertop [Caesarstone:  Symphony Grey] with the vanity painted SW Roycroft Pewter

And here you have it…..all in stock.

It only took 5 hours.

He is picking up the tile on Thursday.

I’ll keep you posted on the process.

In other news I went to Nashville to see the House Beautiful Showhouse.  It was so nice to get away from my life for a few days.  Of course pulling back in my driveway…..I was like “Oh Yeah”….it all came back to me.

Imagine you’ve been married for 26 years….together 30 and besides a few informative emails….there has been no communication.  
Hard to believe.
48 days.
