Bathroom Remodel Project: Week 5

Good Morning!

Today marks Week 5 of the One Room Challenge….Week 5 people!!

Where did Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, and Week 4 go???

In case you haven’t figured it out yet I’m starting to feel the pressure of getting this thing done.

Big. Time.

But a good challenge isn’t really a “challenge” without experiencing a few bumps along the way.

So let me share some of these bumps with you today…

Apple & Cheese Quesadilla


Bikini Bites: Apple & Cheese Quesadilla

Good Morning!

Most of you know I can’t stand onions…unless they are fried or cooked so well that you can hardly taste them.

And if they aren’t you can bet I will be picking them off of whatever it is I’m eating 🙂

I know it’s childish…but I HATE onions with a passion!

So when Danielle told me about a new quesadilla recipe she made featuring apples {yum!}, wine {love it!}, cheese {gotta have it!} and onions {hold the phone – not trying it!}…I was more than a little hesitant to eat it.

But I can’t share a recipe without actually trying it myself. I knew it was time to suck it up and take one for the team.

{Looking back now I can say I’m glad I did!}

Here’s today’s Bikini Bites recipe:

How-To Make Your Own Shower Curtains

Good Morning!

As you know I am participating in the One Room Challenge 6-week link party.

{Or if you are not sure what I’m rambling on about click here :)}

One of our tasks for this project was to make a shower curtain.

Now I know you are probably thinking “they sell lots of shower curtains in stores these days” and you are correct…

But for this remodel we decided to have an extra long shower curtain to create the ambiance of a spa, and make the bathroom appear larger.

So DIY shower curtain it is!

Halloween Home Tour


Halloween Home Tour

Good Morning!

One thing you might not know about me is that I am a big scaredy-cat.

Like huge. No joke.

So it seems weird that during Halloween I love decorating with spooky, slightly gothic décor.

I think it’s because purple and black just go so well together…and if something scary is decked out in glitter it makes it less scary, right!?

I’ll let you be the judge 🙂

Welcome to the Purple Palace’s Halloween Home Tour!
