New Project

Brad found this log bed on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago. I went to look at it and it was in pretty good condition, it was the lighter log color and it had a few pen marks and scratches, but other than that it looked nice. So we decided to get it. We got the bed, the mattress and box springs, and the bedding (not what you see here) all for $75! I wanted to get a before picture, but thought about it too late so you just get the after. We went to Home Depot and got a deep mahogany minwax stain which requires little prep work. Brad went to work sanding it down, applied 2 coats of the stain, and this is what we got!

We're really happy with the way it turned out, now we want to stain our dresser and night stand to match it. (And we really need a bed skirt, my mom made our quilt and we have been using it since we've been married.)

Dance Competition

My little sister, Lori, had her first dance competition at BYU! She competed the waltz against all the other 184 students, and did pretty good! They got a couple of call backs. We went to watch and cheer her on, it brought back so many fun memories of my dancing days at BYU. I was in her same shoes as a freshmen, competing the waltz in my very first dance competition and my partner and I won 2nd place! I realized how old I am getting though, I didn't know anyone there, not even the teachers! Just the heads of departments. It was a fun night, way to go Lori!

It's sad for me to think summer is really over.
But when I see this outside my window...

there's no denying the truth.
Winter is coming.
I wish my camera could have captured
the colors better. The mountains are
absolutely BEAUTIFUL right now.
The yellows and reds with the white snow,
these pictures just don't do them justice.
You'll just have to take my word for it
