refrain from pride

proof office from darlene dame on Vimeo.

the gospel teaches us not to be boastful or prideful.. 
but i am going to boast because i am so proud of tanner and all of his accomplishments. he has worked really hard and has spent many late nights at proof's new office in towntown boise. he, and all the people at proof, came together and put their creative ideas to work to create an awesome flagship store. to see what it was before, to what it looks like now was a crazy transformation. my sister is law cristi joked about how cool their home would be if her husband spent half as much time doing projects on their house (not that their house needs it, it's beautiful!) that he did at proof. these boys have a great love for their business and they put their heart and soul into it. and it's really paid off! tanner has been so busy, busier than i can ever remember, but i will support him every minute of the way. he does it all for me. he started his MBA program at boise state and has been traveling a lot for work. with work, school, church, and life in general, i don't see him as much as i'd like but he somehow manages to be there for me. 

i love him.

proof opened up their store front a couple weeks ago and it's honestly a miracle they finished it on time. i guess that's the good thing about deadlines, things get done. these boys built nearly everything you see. they did the floors out of pallets and built the shelves and front desk out of piping. the back wall took forever to put together. there is an awesome barn wood sliding door (that isn't pictured) that is one of my favorite touches. they opened it up to the public with a bbq and prizes. we were all impressed with the turnout! it was busy all night! boise is a great place to live and i love the support from the community. we are fortunate to live here. a special thanks to our friends and family that could make it! it really meant a lot to us, and i know especially to tanner. you all are the best!

i have one more thing to be proud of... cuba graduated from her first course of puppy training! she can now sit, shake, lay down, stand, and leave treats until you tell her to eat them. way to go cuba!
(yes, i'm wearing the same outfit, and yes, cuba is in a bikini top.. it was halloween :))



  1. beam with pride on this one!! they did an awesome job!! i am still in awe. so cool what they have created. but i mean cuba takes the cake here ;) she can sit on command?! i wuff her.

  2. so cute yay cuba! and the office looks AMAZING! i cant wait to stop by!

  3. Way to go boys! And way to go Cuba! And way to go Darlene for not being totally depressed not seeing Tanner as much, I remember how much you missed him on his first trip to China...all those OC episodes.
