We Came, We Saw, We Kicked Butt!

Katie went back to college this morning, as classes resume on Monday. We dropped her at the MegaBus at 8:15 and then grabbed a bite to eat before heading to Henry Plumbing at 9:00 when the doors opened. We perused the showroom for a bit, and then hooked up with a salesperson to narrow down some choices. She was great, and on top of that had recently remodeled her own bathroom of a similar size. She threw a wrench into my design by proclaiming that dual sink vanities are out. What!!! That's the first thing every couple on HGTV is looking for in a bathroom! She tapped into two other salespeople who concurred - they rarely sell the dual bowls. Instead she suggested doing the same size vanity top that we were thinking of and having one bowl and a knee hole, I think she called it. Basically a place to sit and put on makeup. I like that idea, it's less expensive, and I think it will make the room look more spacious.

By the time we left two hours later we had selected the tub, toilet, vanity, faucet line, floor tile and shower tile. We rock! We need to lay out the design we came up with and make a few more small decisions, and Henry won't be placing an order on the cabinet or the vanity top until a week from Monday. So we can tweak things, but most of the hard decisions are done. No more potty talk!
