pool bath

I've wanted to participate in Kelly's Korner - Home Tours, but since we've been in the middle of moving for the past few weeks, I haven't had any rooms available to be photographed. This week, she's doing bathroom tours. It's fun to look at other people's rooms, to see different tastes and get decorating ideas.

This is my new "Pool Bath". We don't have a pool (maybe, one day), but that's what the builder calls this room. It's the one bathroom located on the first floor.

Please excuse the poor quality pictures. I took these with my iPhone because Josh keeps leaving our camera in his car! This door goes from the bathroom out to the the lanai. I've been meaning to frost the glass, or put up blinds or something for privacy. I will get to that soon!

In this corner of the pool bath, is the shower. Adding this shower to the bathroom was an option, but we thought it'd be useful for guests.

The vanity... very exciting! I had to take this at a weird angle, so I wouldn't be in the mirror reflection.
And lastly, a picture of the beautiful tile. This is the flooring for the entire downstairs living area. I love it! I used the colors in it as inspiration for the paint colors in the whole house.

I will show off the Master Bath another time. We are still working on putting up vanity lights, so when it's complete I will post pics.

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
