I love my new computer!

One of the tests that I have to judge this new system is whether or not I have to bug my husband to upload photos onto my computer. My last computer was too slow for my new camera and I needed to use a cable that I didn't have, etc., so I had to ask Kelly for help. I'm excited to show that I took these pictures a few minutes ago of my china hutch, which I've just started decorating for Easter, and I was able to upload them myself onto my new computer. I'm a big girl now!
So far, so good. It's fast too! Be sure to notice the cute little card on the top shelf, designed by Mandi, that I made last year at her open house. It's the cutest Easter card and I had to save it.

The dishes look stunning! I love brown toille dishes!

Thanks, Julie. If anyone could appreciate them, I knew it would be my little sis.

kelly- I love how you decorate your hutch for every season and holiday. I think that is such a fabulous idea. I feel very special to have made the hutch!
You do such a great job coordinating colors and redecorating. It's fun to go over every once in a while and see the new display :)

I also loved your decorated hutch--you're always so festive! It looks even more fabulous in person!
Julie said…
I think you need to be an interior decorator! Your hutch looks awesome and you are a master when it comes to presentation!

Totally random comment: I LOVE my new PC knives!!! They are seriously the best ever! Thank you for doing a kitchen show for me so I could get them for FREE!!! :)

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
