Bathing Beauties

I was never one for taking baths. I'm impatient and failed to appreciate the considerably prep time involved. Why wait to fill the tub when you can just hop on in the shower? It's the same water, right?

Not to mention the fact that every time I attempted to take one either my lady lumps or my knees were cold. And halfway through I'd have to open the drain, then start refilling with warm water. Besides, thanks to my husband's field of employment, we have a hot tub just off the side of our house.

This summer my husband surprised me with a night at a Ritz Carlton. They had one of those deep luxurious bathtubs and after a day of walking, I decided to hop in. It was so unlike me.  Lo and behold...I loved it! My legs got the best shave, and I all my bits were covered by water.

Since that time, I've been yearning for a good bath. I always have the hot tub at my disposal, but it's not the same. And shaving/shampooing in it is frowned upon. Our master bath only has a shower stall and the other bathroom has a typical tub. I almost wish I hadn't gotten in that day, as now I know what I'm missing. A deep tub is going to be a requirement of our next house. Or at least the one after that.

In the meantime, I do what every other homeowner does when they dream of something just out of their reach...peruse Pinterest. I have decided to compile my favorite lust-worthy tubs. Right. Here. Ahhhhh.


A big bowl of Sarah soup:

Infinity tub with a fireplace? Showoff.

The classically beautiful claw foot:

It's very "take me to your leader". I love it.

A bath and a view? Perfection.

Simple. Knee-covering. Sold.

Shabby chic built-in? I wonder if I can track down the owners and move in. Can you rent just a bathroom?

If all else fails, use your imagination:
