Dresser Re-Do

I found this little dresser at goodwill for $15. Reed and I needed another dresser in our room so I decided to try fixing up one myself and put all my DIY blog reading to the test. Reed didn't know what to think when he went with me to pick it up.
And here she is!
I first sanded the top so I could stain it, then painted and Wa-lah!
I bought the cheapest little wood knobs and stained the knobs the same color as the top. (knobs are so expensive!)Reed was impressed and isn't going to doubt my skills anymore. It was actually quite fun and I'd like to try many more furniture re-dos.

Monticello

This past weekend we went to Monticello and we were able to visit our Temple.
But the highlight of our trip was seeing Reed's grandpa feeding his chickens.There is one chicken that the others pick and beat up on, so every morning when grandpa feeds the chickens he lets that chicken out of the coop. But its how he does it that is funny. {watch video below}

Hello 2011


{Right after our New Years kiss}

This year we have big plans. I don't like making "resolutions" but instead like making goals. Here are a few things I would like to work on this year.
1. Cook more, I need to become a better cook and the only way is doing it. {now just finding the time}
2. Stay in better shape. I hope to run 2 half marathons this summer. I need some motivation to stay in shape.
3. My daily scripture study. I know this will help me with everything to become a better person.
