The To Do List

This post is more for me then for anyone else.  I needed a place to store a list I have been creatin in my head.  This is list of thing to improve, upgrade, personalize, and organize our house.  Please feel free to add any ideas or tips.
The  House List

1) Get hardware for drawers and cabinets in master bathroom
2) Frame mirror in master bathroom with a dark brown wood
3) Get velvet drawer dividers for underwear drawers
4) Clean out one junk drawer a week
5) Find a way to keep pantry organized
6) Hang shelves and cabinets in laundry room
7) Hang two canvas totes, embroidered with REPAIR and DONATE, from hooks in the laundry room
8) Build shelves in the garage
9) Start buying mirrors (wait for big mirror to go on sale at Pottery Barn)
10) Decide on a material for curtains
11) Re-do fireplace mantle, something large and eye catching and romantic
12) Buy wallpaper, frame it and hang it in master bed room, since husband will not let me glue it to the wall
13) Get a new set of French doors out to the patio

More of the Summer

My friend Katie and I took the kids to the International Peace Gardens.  The garden were pretty cool, though the location is a little sketchy.  Each part of the garden represents a different country.  Here are just a few pictures from our fun day together.
Little Owen enjoying the gardens.

Fun Summer Things

Alex got into town a few weeks ago, which is why my blog has been slacking off.  We have spent the summer enjoying our time with him, the warm weather, our beautiful friends, and the amazing farmers markets. 

Most all these things come together on Saturday morning, before I head to the bridal store, when all the friends meet at the Salt Lake City farmers market.  It is my favorite day of the week. 

These lovely peonies are from the farmer market.

On Sunday the 3rd of July, we went for a hike to Dounut Falls.
Here we are getting into the car.

The water was so high that this was as close as we could get to the falls.

We got a little treat after our hike.
