Rise and Shout

The first home game for the Cougars couldn't have been more exciting! 
Starting with what looked like a tornado brewing as we drove into Utah County. 
We were trapped in our car for over an hour 
waiting for the storm to subside and the rain delay to end. 
Finally we braved the rain and headed to the stadium 
with thousands of other fans waiting beneath the bleachers.

But when the game started, the Cougars didn't disappoint. 
An unexpected 40-21 win over Texas made the night perfect. 
Miles and Sheree came with us. 
Christopher ditched to go the the Utes game with a friend.

In addition to the closet and garage remodels, we also had our garages and front door painted. 
I think it's just the tip of the iceberg.

There is nothing better than people who show up when they say they will 
and work hard each day until the job is done.

Elite Door Design did the faux wood paint for our garages.
Wasatch Garage for garage makeover.
Closet Butler for closet makeover.
Roberto Pietro for refinishing and staining front door & shutters.

I highly recommend all of them! All were fabulous to work with!

Labor Day Tradition

We went boating again this Labor Day with the Bywaters. We're making it a tradition! We spend the day on the lake surfing, tubing and wake boarding. That's actually what everyone else did. Stephanie and I were content to cheer everyone on, eat, chat and stay warm.

It was a beautiful day!
