Bountiful Baskets!

I have to share this sweet thing my sister introduced us to, it's a food co-op called Bountiful Baskets ( The way it works is, on Monday you go online and choose a location where you want to pick up your order and pay for it. The drop offs are on Saturdays at that location and time you selected online, and the cost $15 + $1.50 for handling. We've only done it twice, but it's just such a good deal we have to share with all our friends! You don't get to choose what you get, but you're guaranteed 5-7 various fruits and the same of various vegetables. This week we got the following:

Strawberries (1 carton)
Blueberries (1 carton)
Apples (bag of 10)
Bananas (9)
Kiwis (6)
Cucumbers (6)
Celery (2 stocks)
Cabage (1 head)
Lettuce (2 heads)
Acorn Squash (1)
Radishes (3 small bags)
Asparagus (2 bunches)

We've been pleasantly surprised both times with the quantity, quality, variety,and price (of course). Check out the site, they have drop offs all over Utah, and in a few other states.

Oh yeah, here's a funny shot of Mose too. We opened the front door this morning, after we noticed we had filled the house with bacon smoke. It was like we were letting him hang his head out the car window, he just kept running over and watching out the screen door! He's still such a puppy, except bigger and potty trained (usually)!

What's up

We have been so busy! It's a nice feeling, getting things done. Nate has done so many little projects on the house in the last two months. He remodeled two closets and built shelving for them. He built a shelf for me to put pots and pans on,above the stairs (we have to be creative with the little storage space we have). He put new doors on the bedroom, office, and bathroom (and a back door, last fall), and got the casing up on them. He put recessed lighting in our living room and hall! And I'm sure there are more that he'll remind me of when he reads this. :) I don't know if it's fair for me to get a feeling of acomplishment when I helped with none of these projects, but they all have made such a huge difference! I'll have to post pictures later. Anyway, aside from projects we're both in school and working and just keeping really busy. Speaking of which, I have to go catch the bus back to Logan (my classes are in Brigham City)!
