I spent this afternoon hanging out with my mom, going to the Utah Valley Parade of Homes. My mom and I have gone together to the two or three Parade of Homes in our area every year since I was 12, with a brief moratorium for the 3 years I lived in Oregon...so it's been about about 13 years of Parades now. I usually take my camera, but don't take many pictures. This year was different, because for the first time, I have a home of my own! I got to walk around saying, "I could do that" instead of "Someday, when I have a house...." It was awesome.
So I thought I'd show you some highlights from the show.
Needless to say, everything after this house seemed lacking. The "Harborside" was full of character, personality...and life!
But just for good measure...just a couple houses down from the Harborside is a house that was in the Parade a couple years ago.

I got lots of great ideas for DIY projects for my house (as well as bigger projects that I couldn't tackle myself...but I can dream about doing!).
If you live in Utah, the Parade goes through next Saturday, the 18th. Buy tickets online and save $1. If you go, make sure you hit 14 and 8. Those were my favorites. :)
