Fall is in the air and that means floating pumpkins will soon embark upon North Shore of Oquirrh Lake! The annual Ginormous Pumpkin Regatta will be held on October 20, 2018 from 11am - 2pm.  If you have never seen this crazy race, be sure to mark your calendars to attend.  These floating pumpkins can weigh into the thousands of pounds.  Skilled carvers gently carve openings for a grown adult to (not so) comfortably sit in these orange "vessels" and race to the finish line without spilling over into Oquirrh Lake!  Did I mention some carvers use chain saws! The Pumpkin Regatta is a free family activity that Daybreak organizes and is sponsored by the Utah Pumpkin Growers and Mountain Valley Seed Co. Come hungry and enjoy some yummy food truck offerings!

Printed glass fronts, design on the drawers, black outer box, and decorative handles.  Is it too much or just right?   Outdated given today's design trends or perfect for the right house? If they were in an existing home that you were buying, would you "dig them", or "ditch them" ?

Kitchen organization has become a huge industry with pull-out spice cabinets, drawers, garbage bins, divided cabinets for baking sheets, and then you have all the different organizers that you can add to the inside of your cabinets, like lid organizers, and tiered spice racks, risers for plates, hooks for mugs or measuring cups, and lazy susans for those items that get lost behind your more frequently used items.  There's Command hooks, and a million different labels for canisters, magnetic strips for knives,  etc... but the one kitchen organizer that has some homeowners on the fence, is the pot rack.  Some say they are great for being able to reach your pots and pans without digging way back in a cabinet, or that they create a "lived in" feel (add
