    Hello Jmcsherr, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    When you update from 8 to 8.1 from the Store and do a refresh, it will refresh to 8.

    If you like, you could create a custom refresh image in 8.1. When you do a refresh afterwards, it will refresh Windows back to how it was when the image was created.

    Refresh Windows 8 - Create and Use Custom Recovery Image

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
