Downtown Farmers Market. SLC, Utah.

Before we found out we'd be moving back to Salt Lake City, we planned to spend the 4th of July and the following weekend in Utah. We thought about canceling the trip once we realized we'd be living there only a month later but decided it would be good to get reacquainted with our loft and to start making plans for living in it again.

We met with an interior designer on Friday who, after telling her our vision for our loft, made suggestions and talked about ideas that were exactly what we were hoping to achieve in our goal of functional small space living. She was completely on board with our movable walls idea and then had some other awesome suggestions for creating privacy without taking away the openess of the space. We will also be making a few changes to our bathroom and to the finish on our concrete floors. Oh, and there will be some new paint thrown in there, too.

Do you enjoy the planning and the choosing of home remodeling/redecorating? Honestly, I find the choosing of paint and tile and colors and such totally overwhelming. I'm glad there are people who have the knack for that stuff because I certainly don't!

These birds belong to an aviary sanctuary. Not the dinner table.

Weekly + Weekend Workouts: Monday - Crossfit: 50 pull-ups (green band) + 20 burpees. Tuesday - Crossfit: 5 sets of 5 back squats (115lbs). Wednesday - Crossfit: 4 sets of 4 strict shoulder press (70lbs), then 30 handstand push-ups + 30 reverse overhead lunges (55lbs). Thursday - Travel day! Friday - Run! 5.5 miles. Capitol to City Creek. Saturday - Rest day! Sunday - 10 sets of 4 flights of stairs with 20 air squats on every other set (80), then 80 walking lunges.

  1. I SO don't have a knack for it and I wish I did. We have so much work to do on our house to make it look the way I want. Structurally, it's great. But the kitchen is a bright salmon-y pink and the back bedroom is turd brown and Gus's room is off white with electric green carpet oh! and the living room is a pale pink?! Not mention the dark green tile/carpet in the kitchen. Ugh. Haha! I love our house but have no idea where to start. I'm saving all that work for winter in theory because we'll have less farm work then but really it's just because I have no idea where to start or what to choose.

    Looking forward to seeing what you guys do with the space!!
