Basement #1

For Christmas this year, Frankie and I decided we would start finishing our basement.  My dad has done a ton of the work considering this is what he does professionally.  We are really lucky to have his expertise and help!  My parents got us a Home Depot gift card for Christmas to help us along the way.  Because while my dad moves fast, our paychecks don't seem to go so far.

After framing comes the insulation.  It is the worst part.

Insulation went in and then we put up sound board to help with the noise.  I dont want to hear the boys when they are downstairs.

The framing begins.  This is looking into the tv room/man cave

down the hallway

Most days this is how I feel.  Something I am holding or sitting on appears out of nowhere, and I am completely shocked.

Family Pictures 2010

 Frankie's cousin Angela is a wonderful photographer.  She is just getting into the business and takes some amazing pictures.  So we kindly asked her to take some for us so that we could put it on our Christmas card this year.  The picture we ended up using is the main picture on the blog, but these are cute too!  The pictures were taken around downtown Salt Lake City on a very sunny and extremely cold winter day.

Things I am Loving in December

Fergie boots with skinny jeans (thanks Amber)

The most amazing thing I have ever done for my hair (also thanks Amber)

The best coffee shop ever!  Support local, go to Java Joes.

Always a great feeling.

This is a Corgi puppy.  She is not mine, yet!  But I have my sights set on her.
