Construction zone

Summer has definitely started and the weather has been nice and warm here in SLC. Alan, his parents, and I have been keeping busy with the new house and its many projects. We haven't moved in yet but once we get a few things done we will.

Here are some before and during-demo pictures...

Outside front
Front living area/dining room (before the demo work)

The kitchen before the demo work (the counters are linoleum floor tiles, yuck)
The soon to be nursery! LOVE the cubby holes!

Lovely red oak under all that yucky grey carpet!!!

One of the four layers under the kitchen floor...

Another layer under the kitchen floor...

Lovely retro swirl... :)

 I'm trying to get together some pictures of what our plans are for the kitchen. I'll show you all some cabinets, counters, and tile ideas. Yay! Projects!

Anyone remember the push pops from the Schwan Man? Well, now you can make your own with these handy containers:

Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point

It was a lovely day with a lot of color and laughs! It was nice to meet some of my SIL's family and just be outside. Next time, we should pack a picnic!

Chocolate Ice Cream Day!!!

So in celebration of Chocolate Ice Cream Day I went out with the tots and Shirley to a nearby 31 flavors to indulge in some ice cream.

As always, pictures say it all!

Stay tuned... I've some more posts in the works! Including the photos from the Tulip Festival (finally!).
