Bathroom Secrets

While I was in Texas, my sweet man demolished the old, yucky walls surrounding our shower, and did a complete make-over of the area.  He and a buddy raised the shower head, put in new fixtures, and put up tile on the walls.  We have a small bathroom, but it feels like I'm showering in a spa environment with my newly tiled walls.

All I have to do is give the rest of the bathroom a fresh coat of paint and the make-over will be complete!

The other day I went to take the trash out and I found THIS laying near the house by the garden hose. 

I thought, "What on earth is my good cake decorating frosting bag doing on the ground?"

I immediately went inside to interrogate the kids. 

"Kids, why is my good cake decorating bag outside in the rocks????"

"Ummm, we can't tell you."

"What do you mean you can't tell me? Who got out my cake decorating bag?"

"Dad told us not to tell you."

"What did Dad tell you not to tell me???"

"Dad told us not to tell you that he used your good frosting bag to put grout in while he was tiling the bathroom when you were in Texas."

"Ooooooooh. I seeeeeee. Thank you children for telling me the truth."


I sent the incriminating evidence to my lovely, sweet husband's iphone.

Here's the exact text message conversation we had:

He knew he'd been caught red-handed.

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!

How could I be mad at him?  He's so sweet and he used the word "implement", and made smiley faces in his messages. I just melted. 

Besides, a $5.00 Wilton cake decorating bag is a small price to pay for a luxurious new shower.

I love that man!

Bathing in the Taj Mahal of showers,



  1. Wayne is concerned about the level of loyalty shown towards Pete versus the level of loyalty the kids show you. Would they rat you out just as easily? : )

    1. I can assure you that they're equal opportunity tattle tails. :)

  2. Have you thought of becoming an NCIS interrogator? You sure got the kids to spill the beans. I told my hubby and he thought that was a great idea using that to grout. Men huh? Gottah love'm.

  3. Oh, too funny! Men are all the same, huh?

  4. Toooooo funny! Cracks me up because I'M usually the one rummaging through my man's tool cabinets looking for a new pack of decorater bags. He always keeps them on hand for grouting. ;) Your new tile looks awesome!!!

  5. So funny!! Looks god though!! :)

  6. Really... no kidding

    I love you

    This makes me giggle. I can picture him looking hanged dogged or smiling. Either way it worked for him. You guys are cute!

  7. It looks great!!!

    Loved the story behind it!

  8. Nell,

    I pop in here from time to time from Ranch Girl's blog...

    I just love your photos, your writing, your blog! Sometimes I stumble across someone's blog and instantly think we could be fast friends. I wish you were a neighbor!

    I cracked straight up about your husband trying to a---hide the fact he used the cake decorating bag b---that he referred to it as an it could be something he'd buy at UFA or an auction.

    Hope you get some more spring like weather soon with signs of new life. It's always better when the momma's start to calve! We still have snow on the ground...but I know the babes will arrive in a few short weeks. yay!
