amazing space.

here is a gorgeous home found via the design files.  this home was formally an old community hall, way cool.

i'm a little obsessed with these doors, the bike rack, and the exposed brick.  love.

a new favorite. scentsy alternative.

i recently found these yankee candle quickscent refills at target on clearance.  i don't own a yankee quickscent.. but i sure am making good use of these refills in my scentsy!  the wick is removable and it's the perfect little size.

i already cleaned one target out of these (sorry neighbors).  but keep an eye out for these, they're cheap and smell fantastic.

icy weather.

here is what our neighborhood (and most of salt lake city) looked like yesterday. we had freezing rain yesterday.  last night on the drive home from work i had jared pull over so i could see how thick the ice was on top of all of the snow.  it was about 1/3-1/2 inch thick.  every area of snow now looks like an ice skating rink!
