Bathroom Update Number Seven

YAY! The Shower is DONE! No MORE Tiling the Shower! Yippee! Thank you to my wonderful Hubbin who so faithfully tiled every night for a week to get this done. I love you with all my heart! 🙂 Doesn’t it look amazing? AND to top it off, we tiled the floor today! Alright, we have […]
