Five Minute Friday - March 5

Every now and then I think I should post, but don't want to take the time to compose, proofread, edit, over and over as I was trained to do in college. It all sounds like too much work, so I end up not posting at all. So today I'm going to just write for five minutes, and when the buzzer goes off, I'll stop.

And I'm drawing a blank...

last night we went to Karianne's choir concert at the high school. She sang and danced so well and I have to admit that I was proud. My dad came down for the evening and it's always nice to have him visit.

The house is essentially finished - meaning that we're using all the rooms now, including the kitchen. Our beautiful cabinets and countertops are in and we LOVE THEM! Nathan remarked the other night that it is actually fun to do dishes in a nice kitchen that looks good when you clean it up. I figured it also helps that now the TV is facing the ktichen he can watch the BYU basketball game while he works so it doesn't seem like so much of a chore. That was one of our goals in building on -- so that the person in the kitchen wasn't isolated from the rest of the family. Mission accomplished on that one.

Tomorrow the electrician will come to install the last of the lights, and then all that is left is some paint touch up and to make a decision about the kitchen backsplash. Oh, and design and install shelving for the pantry. Does anyone know of a good, affordable closet place they can recommend?

Susan has a drumline competition at her high school Saturday afternoon. We are excited to go and support her and the team in this regional competition. If you don't know what drumline is, come and find out! You'll be very pleasantly surprised! Tickets are $5 per person, $20 per family.

And... that's all folks. Have a good weekend.


  1. you know we're all dying to know which of the granite countertop guys you proposed to.

    hey, so I don't watch the bachelorette - this IS my entertainment...

  2. Come on girl friend, give us picts, we are dying to see it. Has Karianne heard about going to BYU? Thanks for the 5 min update.

  3. Thanks, Lisa, for having me and wanting me there. I always love to come to your home. I love your kids and enjoy watching them perform.

    Got home about 3 PM. No snow up here.

  4. Phew! So cool that the remodel is almost done. I bet it's nice to be on the other side of it. Can you say it was worth it yet?
