Kitchen Reveal – Painted Oak Cabinets

Sooooo, we’ve been mucking around all summer with a kitchen remodel.  We’ve been poking around for like a year looking at painted oak cabinets, but it’s a big change, and an expensive one.  But we’ve had these old 70’s style golden oak cabinets in our kitchen for a decade and they weren’t very nice. This […] Read more…

Our first trip to Yellowstone was fantastic. We had a great guide to show us all the great places to see.

Our First-time Trip to Yellowstone

Last week, my husband and I had a fun vacation.  Bizarrely enough, neither one of us had ever been to Yellowstone before, or even to any National Park.  We are such indoor people it seems kind of pointless to live in Utah surrounded by some of the best scenery in the country.  It’s like we’re […] Read more…

Becky Porter's fabulous Christmas Tree braid.

Utah Blogger Holiday Round Up

If you’ve been around here for a while, you might have noticed that I am about the least crafty, least cook-y female on the planet.  Actually, I used to be pretty crafty, but that was prior to discovering the Interwebs.  These days, digital scrapbooking is about as crafty as I’m likely to get.  And I […] Read more…

Saying goodbye to our dog Joe

Goodbye to our Dog Joe

I’ve written about our Saint Bernard Joe before – his “almost” brush with fame when he was auditioned for a movie.  Well sadly, we lost him last week.  It’s always sad to lose a pet – a dog or a cat has such a short lifespan compared with ours, and yet they become such an […] Read more…
