New Year's Festivities

Sunday, January 3, 2016

(This is what the majority of our "Let me get my focus." pictures look like hahahahaha.)

I love Jake's face in this photo haha.

Yup. This was our New Year hahahahaha. I always complain about the lack of activities for married adults. There are dance parties for single people and fun things if you have kids. But, if you're married without kids it's always kind of boring. At least for us haha. One of these years I'm going to throw a party, but my vision for that requires mucho moneys that we don't have yet hahahah.

Anyway! We ate some Digornio's pizza, tried to buy Martinelli's (It was sold out at two different stores so we settled for Welch's sparkling cider. NOT as good, by the way.), watched Where The Wild Things Are, and were king and queen of the world :)

I'm not one for yearly reflection posts or New Year's resolutions, so we'll just say that 2016 is going to be kick A. Mainly because we'll finally move to New York and have great adventures! 

Thanks to everyone who follows this little blog of mine :) I truly enjoy reading and responding to all your comments and emails! #ilovecyberfriends

XOXO

Christmas Festivities

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

Christmas Eve morning we went to Kneader's for breakfast. I know everyone is obsessed with their french toast, but I truly love the steel cut oats. It's why I am obsessed with steel cut oats now haha. 

The rest of the day was spent getting ready and watching T.V.  We went to Jake's family's house for dinner and had the most delicious cheese fondue.

I FINALLY GOT THE HANNA ANDERSSON PAJAMAS. You guys, I have been waiting SO LONG for this. I got them on mega discount and they are so great. We'll probably use these every year, because they're just too cute.

Christmas morning we opened our presents! I kept telling Jake how cute we were and he was like, "We can be even cuter." and went and got Martenelli's ahhaha. It was fancy indeed.




Jake did such a good job wrapping my presents. :) I have no regrets about our kraft roll.

Trixie was the cutest every day. We bought her santa costume from Target on whim and it was the best decision. 

The rest of the morning was spent building the coolest igloo ever. We're not done with it yet, but I'll post picture when we finish it. We had dinner and played games with my family later in the day. That night, we saw Concussion. It was so good and made me dislike sports more hahahahaha. 

We went to bed with a Trixie Santa and all was well. 
XOXO

22!

Tuesday, December 22, 2015
Saturday was my birthday, yay! I am now 22, aka I am now entering into the stage of life where no one can remember how old you are. Jake was like, "Yeah I know. I sometimes forget if I'm 23 or 24." HAHA. I feel like all the exciting ages are over :/ but whatev. 22 it is! And yes, my birthday song for this year was Taylor Swift. Could it be anything else?

We did my birthday with Jake's family earlier in the week and my birthday with my family on Sunday, so Saturday me and Jake spent the day together. We started with breakfast at Starbuck's, where I was too shy to tell them it was my birthday and get a free drink.



We finally saw Krampus!!!! It was so good haha. When we first saw the previews for it we were so confused, but the more we saw the preview the more we wanted to see it. It had some pretty LAWL moments, especially in the beginning. Also, I was not too shy to redeem my free popcorn email from Cinemark haha.


Jake surprised me with dinner at The Copper Onion! I have seriously wanted to eat here for FOREVER. I only hear good things.




Our verdict: The homemade bread - delicious. The steak fries - delicious. The cabonera pasta- Jake's favorite pasta he's ever had. The kale and walnut pesto - ok. The homemade honey and goat cheese ice cream - SO GOOD. THE BEST ICE CREAM I'VE EVER HAD. I was debating whether or not to get it because I'm not an ice cream person. (I know, I know.) But this ice cream was seriously so good. I would go there every day if I could!

XOXO

Frappula, Yo

Saturday, November 7, 2015
We got the "Frappula" (Dracula frappuchino) on Saturday. I love Starbuck's because it reminds me of my grandma and she is my favorite person on earth. 

Also, I'm putting together a how-to on ordering non-coffee drinks at Starbuck's. Whenever someone ordered a vanilla steamer I used to ask, "Do you drink coffee?" and if they said "No." I would suggest something else. THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO STARBUCK'S THAN VANILLA STEAMERS AND VANILLA BEAN FRAPPUCHINOS.

No worries, dear children. I will teach you.
<3

Wednesday, November 4, 2015
Lol my brother-in-law made me this pumpkin. Also, yes, I do have a photography studio in my house now, in case you were wondering why the sudden white backgrounds. I don't have a softbox yet, but will be getting one soon! Awe yi!!

Also, I am no longer posting the same photos on my blog and Instagram, so if you want to see what's happening over there I've added a link on my sidebar.

Will The Real Slim Shady Please Stand Up?

Friday, October 30, 2015


On Wednesday everyone at my work dressed up. I was playing around with being what you'll see here tomorrow, or Eminem. I decided to be Eminem because a coworker told me it would be unexpected. Let me just say, it was UNEXPECTED. I earned major street credit lol. This one kid even tried to quiz me and was like, "Hey, what's the name of your costume?" I said, "Eminem." He was like, "Well yeah, but what's his real name?" I said, "Marshall Mathers." BAM. Weren't expecting me to know that one, were you?! Throughout the day people were like, "I didn't even recognize you!!!" Or simply, "Slim Shadyyyyyyy!!!!!!" It was awesome.

Lol. Such an entertaining day.

I debated whether or not I should rap Lose Yourself, but I decided not to because I'm still getting over my cold. One day though, I'll grace the world with my performance ;) I'm debating making a video or just doing it live. I can't decide what would be better.

Anyway, just wanted to document these photos on the internets, cause you know. Gotta be a real person and everything ;)

XOXO

Family Halloween Party!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015


I apparently didn't take many photos at our family halloween party! I am trying to get better at photographing the every day. Hence why I have been posting so much lately. I did take lots of pictures of our costumes, but I am going to post mine and Jake's on Halloween. And I never post pictures of my family here for privacy reasons, but just know other people were there too hahahahah. 

My mom made this green apple Kool-Aid and it was SO good. Like, I was surprised at how good it was. We have a halloween tradition of always having this broccoli cheese soup in pumpkin bread bowls. It's dang good, and that's coming from someone who is "not a soup person". (Although I think it just depends on the soup now.)

I want to have a friend halloween party but I feel like I have so many friends scattered in different groups it would be so awkward. I have my friends from high school, my friends from blogging, and then we have my husbands friends. So, I probably won't do it, but I do want to go to a friend halloween party this year! We've never gone to one and I think it could be fun with all the married couples here :). 

That's one of the reasons why I'm excited to move to New York, as well. I hear that out there your friends are your family, because no one is living super close to their family. I think in Utah it's kind of hard because most people's families are so close they usually end up doing stuff with them. (Like us hahaha.) So, let's hope we'll have some fun friends in NYC to do things with! :)

XOXO

The One With The 1,000th Day Of Dating

Thursday, July 16, 2015
I feel so stupid for this now? For some reason, a long time ago I thought it would be fun to set all sorts of count downs on my phone. Count downs are how I survive, you guys. Anyway, so I set one for our 1,000th day of dating, because I thought it seemed like such a far away day. So it's weird that it's here now? Because I can remember setting it and being like, "Ha!! This is so crazy! A thousand days of dating! Can you even imagine?!" And now it's here and I'm like, "I guess we'll go to Chipotle to celebrate?"

Lol. 

Anyway, so my friend Jovanna is SO AMAZING AT PHOTOGRAPHY. She took these pictures of us and I'm obsessed with them. I choose a rooftop and my convertible because of #memorypurposes. We're selling my car in the spring, so I kind of wanted to remember it because it's the first nicer car I've had. And as much as I hate driving, I really do love my car. Anyway, we decided on the rooftop kind of not knowing how it would turn out, but I actually really love how it looks!!

If you're in Utah definitely book Jovanna before she moves to Texas! And if you're in Texas, yay for you! You have an amazing photographer living amidst the others :)

I am going to try not to photo overload this... so let's see how I do.



















I didn't do that bad, did I?

SPECIAL THANKS TO JOVANNA FOR BEING SO SO SO SO SO X 1,000,000,000 AMAZING!
Go follow her photography blog here to see all her beautiful shots!!

XOXO
