Furniture deliveries--YAY!!

On Monday, my new bookshelves arrived for my office and they're already filled, but not in a presentable fashion that I want to show off yet. That will take some more time, but in the meantime, here's the store's floor model. It looks beautiful with my desks and credenza. These next two pieces will arrive tomorrow for our master bedroom. These are from the showroom too and I'll show them in my room after it's all spiffy looking.

The kids will get our contemporary white dresser and chest of drawers from our bedroom that we bought several years ago before I could define my design tastes as they are now. I'm excited! I hope they match the bed well...my fingers are crossed.

New furniture is SO exciting. I am glad that you were able to find so many things that you liked. I have the hardest time deciding on furniture. Those pieces look great. I am sure that they will look fantastic in you home.

Those are very classic and beautiful Kelly. I love the color, I love them. Chris has been begging for nice bookshelves for his hundreds of books. I will not show this to him he will probably drool!

okay already... send the next photos! J.K., I know you are working hard... but we want to see those shelves filled up and organized looking - you have such a talent for "visual presentation" - I know, that was my career field before kids!

How fun to get new furniture and those pieces are beautiful! I know the bookshelves will look awesome in your office and I can't wait to see all the cool stuff you use to organize everything. I will probably copy lots of your organizing ideas b/c I desperately need it for my scrapping/stamping stuff.

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…
