1) Some of you may remember this picture I put up awhile back in my photo tag - it was the project I was currently working on:
I'm happy to report that all those gosh-awful boxes are OUT of my family room, sorted and put away! I actually got this done awhile back but just never posted about it. So nice to have a family room back.
2) Saturday I worked on the food closet during the BYU game where they creamed UCLA 59-0. :)
The plants around the tree are doing great too:
The picture doesn't do justice here. The large areas of green are a ground cover that started out as small clumps and has spread really nicely with little purple flowers blooming. There's another plant with pretty bright pink flowers on the left that you can't see very well. We made some good choices because all the plants have bloomed all summer long, and they're all perennials so they'll be back next year. We still need to put a plaque in, but I think it turned out really well for the first season.
