When we bought our house, we were lucky enough to be spared major fix ups. Minor keep ups here and there but nothing big. However, our deck is in some serious need of a face lift as you can see. I'm not sure why someone chose to stain it a burnt orange. So, we've decided to paint it and then stripe the floor boards. I can't wait for the finished product. We just got started on the painting last night and realized quickly how big a project it truly is. Stay tuned for pics of the final product which will blow your mind... I hope.

My super talented cousin Lauren produced this animated film for her BYU Animation Final.
 It is pretty much the best thing, and will put a smile on your face.

Banks & Daddy


Banks had his first Birthday yesterday. 
I cannot believe we've had this little oogie for a year. It's crazy to think about all that's gone done in a year. We've had so much fun with him and I don't think the fun will be stoppin any time soon. 
So bring on another year... we're totally game!

10 days well spent

I recently spent 10 days up at our family cabin in Woodland, UT. I had so much fun being with sisties and my new niece , Hero. Banks loved crawling around in his overalls aka cabinalls. Just a nice break from life is what we all needed.

mini house tour

We've been moved in for a little over a month now. My sofas and dining room chairs came this last week so I have finally felt like I could put the whole thing together. There is still quite a few projects to start/finish but here is what we got so far.

 Master bedroom
 Master Bath/Closet

So there ya go. We could not be more happy with our neighbors and the area. We feel pretty lucky to have snagged this gem.
