Master Bathroom Makeover with Gray and White Color Scheme


This post contains affiliate links.

We have been working on our master bathroom this year and I'm finally ready to show you the whole thing, all complete!!  There were three big parts to this remodel, we tiled the floor, tiled the bathtub, and painted the vanity.  I absolutely love how it turned out and I just stare at it non stop when I'm in it and still can't believe that we were able to make such a huge difference in our bathroom.  It went from being pretty dark to being white and bright! It took us about 5 weeks to complete (really 5 weekends with me doing a few things here and there through out the week).  And if you want to see how we did a certain part, make sure to click on the links because they will take you to the tutorials on how we did everything!  And now it's time to show you my master bathroom :).

How to Cook Hard Boiled Eggs in an Instant Pot in 10 Minutes


This post contains affiliate links. 

We love hard boiled eggs at our house but I don't like to boil them and deal with timing them and making sure that are done.  And then you have to cool them correctly to make sure the shells come off smoothly.  It's kinda a big hassle, so I honestly don't make them very often.  Then I got my instant pot and made them in it and I will NEVER make hard boiled eggs on the stove again!  This way is fool proof, quicker and the shells just basically fall off!  And with Easter coming soon, this is the way I will be making eggs so we can dye them.

Indoor Relay Races with Goldfish® Crackers

Goldfish® crackers are one of our favorite snacks.  All of my kids love them (and so do I!). I swear anytime we are at Walmart, my kids are begging me to get more Goldfish crackers.  We go through them so quickly because we just can't resist these fun crackers that have a smile on them.  The Snack That Smiles Back®.   After my kids get home from school, they are always asking for a snack and I usually send them to the pantry to get some of these crackers :).  

We have had a really LONG winter this year.  We have had 10 snow days this winter and the weather has been awful, so we have spent a lot of time indoors.  My kids (and I) have been going stir crazy. and needed to be a more active.  And since we couldn't go outside,  I decided to make snack time a little funner.  I got the kids together and we had some fun relay races with the Goldfish crackers.  It was so fun to watch and play, for everyone in the family.

If you've been following along then you know that we have been remodeling our master bathroom.  It has been a LOT of work but I seriously love the outcome of it all!  I look in there and I'm in shock that it's my bathroom and that my husband and I did the work :).  If you haven't seen the other two parts of the bathroom remodel, check them out!  We installed tiles floors and then also installed tiles on our bathtub.  And once we did those two thing we HAD to change out the vanity.  It seriously LOOKED awful in there with all the updates. So we got new counter tops and then we painted the cabinets.  The difference is amazing and I love the outcome!  Now to show you :).

Tips on How to Install Tile Flooring in a Bathroom with Ridgemont Silver Tiles


This post contains affiliate links.

This winter has been really, really long.  We have had 10 snows days, 8 of them since the beginning of the year.  We were trapped in our house for several days and I was going crazy.  So I needed something to do.  I've been wanting to redo my master bathroom for awhile now (I love it but it's very dark and not very modern) so I finally convinced my husband to start the process with me (it only took 10 snows day, hahaha!).  This is the first time we have tiled a floor, so we learned along the way.  It was a lot of work but man do I LOVE the outcome!  The difference is night and day in my bathroom and I cannot wait to show you the rest of the bathroom when it's all done!
