Base House Makeover: Guest Bathroom

Are you ready for the guest bathroom reveal?

If you’ve been with me for the past few months, then you know I’ve been slowly sharing with you the changes we have made to our base house.

You know those nightmares you had when you were a teenager (okay, maybe even as an adult), when you were caught with your pants down and you were desperately scrambling to get pants on? Never in my life did I imagine I would experience something like that in real life.

I’m totally, 100%, scout’s honor serious!

If you were driving the highway between Arizona and California last month and saw the bare butt of an almost 30-year old woman on the side of the road, I confess, that was me. I can’t believe I’m actually telling this story, and I’m trying so hard to not guffaw at myself right now.

I peed my pants.

While driving.

In the middle of nowhere.

Ya’ll, this is what Continue reading
