Bathroom Remodel Update

We have officially kicked off the bathroom remodel! When I first bought my house, I did a little freshening up of my bathroom, but the time has come for a bigger overhaul. The parts of the bathroom that really need to be redone are the vanity, mirror, and floor.

The vanity and mirror were there when I bought my house and have seen better days. The mirror is made out of laminate particle board, which just doesn’t wear well in a bathroom. I suspect the vanity is original to the house and the wood is pretty gross and the top is a yellowed stone. I put in a new floor the first time I did my bathroom, but I just went with a basic tan tile. It’s not the worst look, but I would like something a little nicer and updated.

Trip Recap: Shenzhen and Hong Kong

I recently took an overseas work trip to China. It was my second time visiting, and it was nice to know what to expect this time around to truly enjoy my time there! When we travel for work, the days are sometimes really long and filled with meetings, but it’s also nice to be able to travel for free and be able to stay in nicer hotels (and 12 hour flights in business class!).

Because we traveled over a couple of weekends, we also got a few free afternoons and days off, which were great, even though we mostly just sat at the hotel pools.

My Christmas Mantle Decor

One of my favorite days of the year is when I decorate my christmas mantle. I try to do a little different look each year, and it’s always fun to pull it all together. This year, I felt like we didn’t have a fall season, so I tried to hold out as long as possible, but still ended up decorating in mid-november.

This year, I went for a more colorful and whimsical theme, instead of the more traditional look that I normally have.
