Mini Bathroom Renovation

About two months ago we had a MAJOR plumbing problem in our bathrooms. If you follow us on Instagram you probably remember seeing our horrifying pictures and stories about our two days of problems.

Long story short, the plumber had to rip out the bath tub and surround in our master bathroom. It is going to cost a few thousand dollars to repair the plumbing under our slab floor -- because it was installed wrong nearly 60 years ago when the house was built. Lucky us! 

I have been dreaming of what I can do in this tiny bathroom since then, and saving things like crazy on Pinterest (feel free to take a look at my board... it's gorgeous!). But, we found out last week that the company my husband works for it being closed and he's out of a job as of tomorrow. So, the bathroom project has been put on hold until we can find him a new job and save up the money for it. 

The problem is we still had this ugly, open wall that I have to stare at every morning when I get ready for the day, and every time I go into my bathroom. So, I decided this week that I had seen enough of that ugly space, and was taking matters into my own hands! 

Top 10 Ways to Be More Productive

I get asked a lot how it is I manage to get everything done: family, work, church, friends, etc.. Rather than address each of you individually, I decided to put together this handy reference guide to give you a few of my favorite tips and tricks for how to make the most of your time and have a more productive day!

Does that "to-do" list look familiar? No matter how much we do or do not have to do in any given day, it seems we all want the same thing... more time! Unfortunately we are all stuck with the same 24 hours in a day .... unless you know something I haven't figured out yet!

So, until you share your secret of freezing or slowing down time with me, I'm going to help you out with a few tips and tricks I've learned over the years about making the most of my days.

As a mom, a wife, a PTA member, a church goer, and a small business owner I've had my fair share of time management issues ... I'm sure we all have. But, there are a few tried and true things I use to help me get through it all. People will tell me I'm amazing at how well I handle everything... but here's the truth... I don't really handle everything! I am just really good at being productive!

Sourdough Bread Recipe

There is nothing better on a cold winter day than a nice warm loaf of sourdough bread. One of our favorite ways to eat is it to toast up some slices on our cast iron pan and make a sandwich. A grilled ham and cheese sandwich is TO DIE FOR made out of some homemade sourdough bread! Once you try it, you will never eat a regular grilled cheese sandwich again... 

If you need a great sourdough starter recipe, head over to Farmhouse on Boone and check our hers. It's the one I use when I'm in the mood for some sourdough. We've had our current starter for about a month and it's been awesome! Fair warning, sourdough bread making is not hard, but it takes a lot of patience. This post is loaded with TONS of photos showing you how to do it every step of the way so you will be able to make it too!
