Our Bathroom in Print (Better Homes and Gardens Kitchen and Bath Makeovers)

**To read lots more about our master bathroom (including sources), check out this post.

Yesterday, my youngest guys and I were browsing through Target when we came to the magazine aisle.  This was after spending a half hour in the video game, movie, and books aisle "just looking". These last few weeks of summer are wearing me more vacations and a husband who is working every. single. day for the rest of the month.  I spotted the new issue of the magazine that did a photo shoot at our home last October. Secretly, I don't think I really believed the article would ever actually be published.  I opened it to the bathroom section and there I saw the words "it's full of boys" and I knew that those words meant us!
My little guy was so proud of his mama and that his been my favorite moment of this whole experience :)  Middle boy mentioned that it was very fitting for me to see our house in a magazine at Target since I spend so much time there it is like my second home.  He's a funny one.  When I first shared pictures of our master bath last year on my personal scrapbook of a "blog", I never imagined the road that would lead me down.  A feature of our master bathroom can be found in the Fall/Winter issue of Kitchen and Bath Makeovers by Better Homes and Gardens, on newsstands now.  There is also a digital edition available here.

It seems surreal to see a space that I use everyday all prettied up by a stylist and photographed by a talented professional.  It was exciting to get to read what the writer, Jorge S. Arango, had to say about us and our DIY bathroom.  I felt like he really "got" our family.  It was a thrill to watch the photographer, John Bessler, work.  Best of all, Marie McCartan, the magazine editor, said that I have "savvy shopping skills" in her editor's note, which really is just affirmation to my husband that he should just trust my shopping habit, right? :)

For other bloggers out there, if you ever have an opportunity to have a magazine come to your house for a feature, I highly recommend it.  The guys that came to my house were down to earth (and funny!) and gave us a little bit of insight into how the magazine world works with their stories.  It was an experience we will never forget.
