So we ran the "Dirty Dash" last Saturday... Soo much fun! It may become a Mortensen tradition! We did it with the in-laws and nephews. we had a blast. the Piglet Plunge was great too. Laker loved getting dirty! We did the 10k option...we had to get our moneys' worth! I felt like Steve and i could rock a "MTV Challenge"! We had soo much fun. Not to mention the shower situation after... group showers anyone....
Here we have me hosing Laker down in his undees and Steve washing off after the big race. Paying that extra $6 for a hot "shower" was worth it! Perfect activity to end the summer.
I also managed to get these chairs done last week. Debbie is an awesome lady who splits her time between draper and florida! She works in Florida in the school system and gets awesome retirement perks.... so she is sticking it out while her husband mans the fort back in draper. i met with her way back in the year to chat about this project and i finally was able to work her in. She wanted to change the look of the chairs completely, so her sister, who is a designer back east ordered her fabric and got the ball rollng! here is the before of the chairs:
she has 6 total but we only reupholstered 4 of them. We changed the look by going with a more contemporary fabric and doing away with the skirt. Its amazing how different they look!
So great! on another note I am booked till January!! horay! We have a lot of exciting things going on. We fought the battle with the real estate market this year and almost came out on top...boo to buyers that back out on you! So we have decided to pull the house off the market and finish the basement. hopefully we can get a lot of the dirty sheet rock stuff done before the new year. My husband is on a rampage to get it done. So keep your fingers crossed! We will also be making the treck with kids in tow to Kona in november! thanks mom and dad for our early christmas presant! we are soo excited! i will have a few more posts for you this week as I am super busy!! i may have an extra spot open up in Ocotober, so if you are wanting something done,now is your chance!
