Yes, we bite at blogging.
Yes, we really enjoyed our summer off.
Yes, we love you. Are you still here? Anyone?
We can't believe it's been over TWO months since we've shared our lives with you!
I'm going to give you a snippet of what I've been up to the past couple months. You might have to LEAVE A COMMENT and tell Mia how desperate you are to hear from her! She has a bad case of the blogging blahs.....but aren't you all just dying to connect with her again? Show our girl some love. We all want her back!
What have I been doing the past 2 months?
THE BATHROOM REMODEL.
And nothing else.
Oh. My. Gosh. This is the beastliest project I've ever taken on, and mark my word, it's NEVER going to happen again.

With that being said, I am trudging along, accomplishing about a million things I never imagined I'd ever do. Every time I finish something, I just shake my head and say to myself, "Jilly, I can't believe you just did that!"
So remember where we were? I had just finished setting the last tile, and I was confident I was never going to lay another tile as long as I lived.
I took a few days to let the news settle, then I ripped the paneling off at midnight (no small task) and chipped away the finished tiled edge so that I could continue the subway tile along the entire wall to ensure it was waterproof.
And then I grouted it.
Oh, I forgot to tell you the amazing deal I got on all the subway tile. I found it at a ReStore for $8 a box instead of the $22 a box from Home Depot. Same exact tile, brand new and boxed up. I bought 20 boxes and almost broke the axle on my van. My bad.
I'm excited to tell you that I have completed several more things in the bathroom, but I've got to save the details for another post so that you'll come back. I know my riveting bathroom tale is keeping you up at night (that makes two of us) so check back next week for more progress. I think you'll like it!
And this is for you local girls. (Phoenix area) I have a friend named Kalli, better known on Instagram as @decordeals, who is having an absolutely amazing vintage sale this weekend in downtown Mesa. She was nice enough to let me bring some of my
