Show Your School Colors!

It’s that time of year where our attention is diverted to college football and time for us to don our colors. Whether you are a fan of the Blue team (BYU) or the Red team (Utah), you can’t wait until it is kick off time and your team is on the field.

One of my best childhood memories was when my mom and dad would take us to watch a BYU football or basketball game. While the football team took the field where present day LaVell Edwards Stadium is located, it was a much different setting when I was young. A track surrounded the field and there were no seating in the end zone area.

This allowed me and my brothers to play in the grass area between the end zone and the track, even while the Cougars were playing on the field. We would toss the football around and have our own little game going and we weren’t bothered by the referees or other officials. Continue Reading »

Cleaning time as “Me Time”?

August 23, 2013

Shannon-HansenI don’t know about you, but I am getting really excited to send the kids back to school! Don’t get me wrong, I love to have them around. But about this time every summer I start longing for the days that a clean house stands a chance at staying clean for a day or two!

One of these days the stars will align and my kids will be at school on my day off and I will hear something that I haven’t heard for several months . . . Silence. But until that moment comes, I have my trusty headphones and mp3 player.

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I can’t remember the last time I just sat down and closed my eyes and listened to music. The other day I was rockin’ out to Matchbox 20 and scrubbing the shower when I had an epiphany. I was enjoying myself! That’s right, I said it! I was actually having a good time CLEANING! I am not ashamed. Continue Reading »

Last Chance for BBQs & Fireworks!

July 23, 2013

Hello everyone! My name is Shannon, and I’m the Home and GM manager at Harmons Draper. The GM stands for General Merchandise, so if you find yourself in need of batteries, light bulbs, school supplies, etc. etc. you’ll be shopping in my neck of the woods. So what does the “Home” part of the department include? That’s the fun part! I get to play with all of those things that can help you turn your house into a home! And that just so happens to be one of my passions in life! I love decorating, entertaining, and creating. I try to add a personal touch to everything I do. So Harmons is the perfect fit for me.

I think what sets Harmons apart from other stores is our attention to detail. That is also what will set your home apart from every other house on the block. Attention to detail turns a basic ho-hum BBQ into something that everyone is talking about. It’s what makes your kids remember birthday parties as some of the best moments of their life. It’s what tells your family and friends that you are happy that they are a part of your life. The details are where memories are created. At least that’s what I tell myself when I’m obsessing over every last detail preparing for a simple BBQ with friends. Continue Reading »
