Home Sweet Home

Just a few pics of our unfinished place. Things are starting to come together but there is still so much to do.

Here is the office. Derek is so happy to finally have his desk. There is my beautiful couch he is sitting on. I will put more pics of the couch later cause I have lots to say about him.

Here is one side of the bedroom. We obviously need curtains, a rug, a boarder for the bed, and somewhere to put the "freshman year" tupperware. Look at the lamp!! That came with the place, and I love it!! Super vintage.

Here is the other side of the bedroom. Big closet, thank goodness! I have way too many clothes, the rest of them are in the office closet ;)

Here is the kitchen. We are lookin at it through our little "Taco Window". Thats what I call it anyway. I love the little cup hooks.

Here is the living room. I love my new rug!! We need to hang pics and stuff but its coming along.

Dere is mounting the tv on the wall and we need end tables. There was no lighting in here at all so I temporarily hung my fave green lamp. He is obviously a corner lamp so I will move him later.

Later I will put up pictures of it finished!

Belated Valentines

Since I had to work last Tuesday.... Derek and I went out last night for Valentine’s Day.
He surprised me of course.
We went to Thai Siam’s for dinner because I love that place. Best crabs in a blanket ever! Then we went to see a play called "Les Belles Soeurs", which means "the beautiful sisters" in English. It was a really entertaining show. I loved it. I think Derek might have been dying a bit through the second half. It was rather long and quite girly. The actresses were amazing though. I haven’t actually been to many plays and I forget how intense they are.

After that Derek had planned to go ice skating at the Gallivan Center but it was so cold we decided against it. So we went to Gormandies The Bakery instead. My fave place ever! Tash and I used to go there like every week when we lived in Salt Lake. It's almost exactly like the bakeries in Paris that I loved so much. I got the strawberry ring like I always get, and Derek just stared at all the pastries unable to make such a huge decision.
Then we went home to our cute, new place and ate our scrumptious desserts pretending to be in Paris.
It was a lovely evening.
By the way... this is our fifth V-day together. Crazy how time flies! Were kind of sad that we are starting to forget what we did for the others. Thank goodness for blogging.

This is not our V-Day pic but of course we totally suck and did not get any pictures. 

Oh wait... We did get a couple...

These are the daffodils that Der got me. 

This is at Thai Siam's.... the best crabs in a blanket ever!!

Just Countin' the Days...

Finally some exciting news to tell....

 First, I have recently started interning with the events department of Thanksgiving Point. It is super fun! I love the girls I work with and I love planning the events.

Second, Derek and I have finally found our new place. It is right downtown. You can actually see Trolley Square from our building and we can walk to Liberty Park! Yay!
Did I mention that I am FREAKING OUT, excited to move!! It's seriously all I think about.

Here are some of the things I'm super excited to do when we move in.....

Cover this chair - I have had it forever and have been meaning to re-upholster it. I have finally begun. It has arms as well. Derek is sanding them. I will post later about the final product.

Make this map

Buy furniture - I love shopping thrifty!

Hang lots of plants - My mom always had lots of plants and I miss it. Plus we have this awesome window in our living room that is perfect for plants.

Start listening to my awesome record player that Der got me for Christmas.

Have Derek make this bed for Tundra.

Oh, did I forget to mention that we are getting our puppy soon. And his name is Tundra!

                                       I'm so excited I could die! Don't worry, he's just sleeping.

Third, We are taking a trip to Vegas on Feb. 24th to pick up Tundra. We're going to make a fun little trip out of it and stay the weekend with some friends.
