Men! and a giveaway!

First off - the adorable Miss Barb at Bella Vista is having a giveaway! For all us Rooster lovers, this is just too cute! And even though I already won one of her giveaways, she said I get to play again. :)

Scoot on over and enter to win!

Second. Men. Sometimes they just don't get it. You have to honestly wonder why they sometimes do what they do. Course . . . since I started blogging, he's wondering why I do what I do too, so I guess it's a trade off! But still - come with me as I take you on a tour of our master bathroom . . .

Yes! It needs updating but that just isn't in the cards right now.  There is waaaayyyyy too much gold brass in here - but . . . someday! It really is a very, very comfortable room. (Is a bathroom a room?)

Entering from the bedroom - the double doors are the HUGE closet.
What? A picture of in there? Are you out of your mind?
Maybe another day . . .  (hehehe)

Love my pink and shiney phoof.
(Whoops,  new candle! Don't look at the wrap . . . )

Sorry. Had to play with just a few of the shots.
I wish I had different frames to choose from . . .

Well, I was going to accidentally get in one of the shots eventually
with all the mirrors . . . so might as well just get it over with.
Why do we stand so goofy when taking pictures?
Does it make it a better picture? :)

So do you see what's wrong, other than the gold brass?

What is he lining these up for?
So that every morning I get to squish them
and place them here? Just outside the door?

We have this little min-bar in between the master bedroom
and the master bath.
I know it looks funny - but the recycling basket is handy here.
And yes, here in California, everyone recycles . . . everything.

So tell me, why can't he smoosh the bottles himself?

Like I said . . . men! They sometimes just don't get it.

"WHO DAT (dancing a jig) WHO DAT". Who dat goin' to the SUPERBOWL!!!! (Sorry Favre!)
I've never seen anything more beautiful than that funny shaped ball sailing through those goal posts for a measly three points to win the game. OH YEAH! Did you hear me screaming? Jodie did, all the way to Louisiana!

Hey, if it can't be the Chargers, it's gotta be the Saints. :)

Have a good day everyone!

Well, Karen... I think it is all beautiful. Yes, HE could squish the bottles but he wouldn't do it as good as you:) Have a blessed day and I did buy the sweet class! Hope it isn't above my head.

I didn't even notice the water bottles...but, is that a recliner in the bathroom? You have a chair in there? I found that pretty interesting!

Oh how I do know about all the brass/gold color. We had that in our last bathroom by the ton. Your bathroom is nice and big and that's what's really important. I don't get it. My DH doesn't leave water bottles, but his coffee cup, his tooth brush and comb and anything else that he's used all on the counter. Sometimes even a pair of dirty socks. lol Oh well, I guess they are just really little boys that we are still raising. Hugs, Marty

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Karen, you are soooo sweet. Thanks for the giveaway mention and yes, you ALWAYS get to enter. :-)

Now....about this is funny and you are such a dear for putting a smile on all our faces. Your bath is great....nothing wrong with the brass....looks good to me. I love the chair! (not showing that to my hubby....he would want one! heheh

Love this post!
Hugs, Barb ♥

Hey girl,
I think your bathroom looks pretty wonderful! I was too busy looking at the jacuzzi and the pretty pink things to notice the H20 bottles. I hate to say it, but my hubby is kind of a neat freak! He never leaves clothes, or shoes, or anything lying around. In fact, I am without a doubt, the messier of us. I took over the other bathroom and his is always so much neater than mine! Course I need lot's more tools to stay looking presentable! And for the football game, I think the whole state of Wisconsin was rooting for the Saints. There is a bit of bad blood with the Favre thing, and oh was my hubby happy the Vikings didn't win. Hugs, Cindy

It's nice to have such a big bathroom. We only have the one bath and it's not very big. I also love the morning kitchen. I would have my coffee maker there.

zandra said...

Great bathroom! Love the camera lesson, too! thanks for sharing!
Hugz, Z

Blondie's Journal said...

You have a nice, big beautiful bath...I envy you. Now. Take all of the bottled water out of the mini frige and DO NOT restock it. There. Problem solved!

Love the recliner.


Nina Diane said...

Ticking and Toile said...

Hi Karen,
I can be so quirky!! huh? hee hee! Mine does strange little things like that too. Oh well...what can we do?? hope they don't notice all of our quirks...:o)


Charlene said...

We DAT!!!

Elyse said...

hi karen!

i have come to the conclusion that there are some things that men just don't/can't see. why is my husband's care always a pit? anywho ...

i think my kitchen could fit in your bathroom. LOL it is lovely! i will come and be the bottle attendant. :)


Elyse said...


sleepy typing:

care = car

susan said...

Karen-I thought I was the only one in Blogland who was screaming with joy and tears in my eyes for the Saints--really the whole city. My boys (grown) were there and said it was absoulutely unbelievable!!! Poor Archie-he is bound to have mixed feelings! Your bathroom looks a lot like mine. And yes, I am religious about recycling also, but my husband makes feeble attempts.

Cottage Cozy said...

I guess for a bathroom to be considered a room it depends on its' size...your qualifies.

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Karen, Your bathroom is beautiful. It's so spacious and looks very comfortable. Wow, you even got an armchair in there. I love all your sweet decorations! The minibar is just so cool!
Hugs and love,

Ginger said...

Karen I am cracking up over your comment "what is he lining them up for"? My hubby would be throwing them somewhere, at least yours is neat. lol.
I love your bathroom and the big tub. Reminds me of my home that I had in Las Vegas.
I think it looks great just the way it is!!
And yes, standing crooked makes for a better picture. lol.

debi said...

OMGosh Karen! I agree with Elyse...I could fit my kitchen in your bathroom too! I didn't even notice the water bottles with my bugged out eyes. LOL

With my hubby, it's his coffee cup, socks, shoes, tools, etc. I won't list would end up being a post in your comments. hehehe
