September & Lately

A weekend in midway means a stop at the Timp Freeze.  Gonna miss these Utah Peaches.

Hikes up to Lake Blanche with Sadie and Chris.  Something I recently discovered from this hike… I don’t like the hike up. I’ve never liked hiking.  But… I love running down the hike.  Something about having to pay attention and jump over rocks makes me smile.

Chris and I decided sandwiches are ridiculously delicious.  So we made September Sandwich month. Lame. Yes.  We ate so so so many sandwiches.

My favorites were…

Even Stevens – Do Gouda & Mihami Vice.  Even Nate the Great loved it.

Robin’s Nest- The Sink & Gouda Smoker. I cannot say enough about Robin’s Nest.  It is always amazing and it is still family owned and ran.

Moochies- Meatball & Philly Cheese Steak. Messy messy sandwich but overall yummy and they have delicious sauces you can put on your sandwiches. Use their fry sauce and Jumpin Jalapeno Sauce.

Chop City Food Truck- Cuban (obviously) & Sweet Chili Chicken. We tried them at the SoHo Food park in Holladay.  They put bacon on EVERYTHING.12107260_10153644596906250_1008700931357195759_n

What is fall without Football.  Chris & I are on opposing sides of the BYU Utah rivalry.  Good thing we both like watching sports otherwise we would be in big trouble.  Plus, he can’t really talk because I think he secretly knows that Utah is better. The Utah Michigan game was awesome.11227857_10153644593001250_8441902859807393342_n 12112189_10153644593086250_2666657429178100041_n

The BYU vs. Boise State game was fun too.  Gotta love a good hail mary and watching Chris happier than I’ve ever seen him.12115856_10153644597016250_8756157695532893332_n12096389_10153644597026250_1398518692790145565_n Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 10.20.08 AM

T Swift concert. Need I say more? I spontaneoulsy bought tickets and told Chris.  For some reason he thought that meant he could buy a scooter since we are a one car family.  Two best decisions we’ve ever made (besides getting married.) Also, Chris sang every word at Taylor.  Proud wife moment.

Having some fun interviews for our Tinder love.

We got to interview with Jennifer Stagg on Mormon Channel Daily. It was our first time getting to talk about the gospel and its role in our relationship and deciding to marry each other in an interview. Have a listen…

Interviewed for a story on BYU men and Tinder.  Chris went to BYU so we were a perfect match for this story. Our photo even made it to the front of the Utah section.

Took our photo at Chris’ work on Broadway street in Downtown Salt Lake. We didn’t realize how big the photo would be in the paper. 11232713_10153644597121250_4690584356899908116_nLooking homeless as I pick up the paper at Sev.

My favorite part of September was Women’s Conference.  So many amazing messages. One of my favorites was from Sister Rosemary Wixom and talking about our Divine Nature.  Our purpose is Christ and once we find that out our whole life changes.  Sister Wixom quoted my great aunt Elaine Cannon and I loved the quote so I made this to frame.

As of Late

 

These past few weeks have been a total blur.  With school and work and side projects I feel like I haven’t had time to breath… Plus i’m still in a food coma from last week’s ice cream post.  So in the spirit of keeping up with blogging I thought i’d post a few things i’ve been up to.

Starting School with my Seeeestor at the University of Utah

For the longest time on the drive to the Midway cabin, my siblings and I would point to this big hill and say “there’s Grandpa’s cabin!” It was at the very tip top of the hill.  I was so excited to show Chris where some of my crazy childhood memories were. (It has not been in the family for several years, but it’s still sentimental.   Sadly, on the way up to the cabin I couldn’t see Grandpa’s cabin! We walked up the big hill and the closer we got to the top I kept saying “I DON’T SEE IT CHRIS! WHERE IS IT!”  Finally at the very top all I saw was the foundation of Grandpa’s Cabin and the iron wagon wheel Grandma had placed there.  We were devastated!!! So I took a few wood blocks I could find and carried them back down the hill as a momento I could give my Grandma.  I am so sad that I won’t be able to point to the top of the hill anymore..

Those of you who love Midway and Heber will understand the importance and specialness of Dairy Keen.  (the train restaurant)  Can’t go there without getting some sort of ice cream treat.

Visited my dear Grandma and found her with a Caffeine free DC in one hand and a cookie in the other.  SHE IS THE EPITOME OF AWESOME!

This sunday was area conference and Chris and I live downtown so we got to walk 5 minutes to the conference center for church! booya!  I especially loved Elder Oaks talk.  It inspired me to write this song lyric in my sunday journal.  Faith means trusting in God’s timing which means we must be prepared to be surprised!

I spent what felt like 5 hours looking for my keys in the apartment this morning.  (i lose my keys, phone, and wallet every second)  I open the door and there they were.  All night.   BLESS MY HEART.

Thanks for stopping by. Keep it real folks.

Can’t believe I had my very first Wedding Shower today!
Andrea Webber, my darling Chi Omega sister, was kind enough
to host the party!
the theme of the party…
“Chris & Janie chose the perfect time to FALL in love”
ahhh so adorable.
Andrea is an avid baker and made all the delicious treats herself.
I wish I was that dedicated.Every time Chris and I opened a present the person who gave the gift asked us a question.  Some of my favorite questions were…
1. What is something that only Chris knows about you?
Answer: Chris helped me discover my love for being a total princess.  In short… he carries me everywhere, upstairs, downstairs, to the car, to my bed.  Guess what. he’s never complained once.  He offers to do so.  Man Prince Charming am I right?
2.  Why can’t you live without each other?
Answer:  Chris and I both agree that we are the perfect people for each other.  I have told Chris things I would never be comfortable sharing with anyone and vice versa.  He is compassionate towards me and their is no one else I could imagine helping me with my weaknesses other than Chris.
3.  What is the thing you’re looking forward to most about being married (besides the obvious)?
Answer:  Being able to wake up to him forever, never having to say goodbye at night, deciding household traditions and running a home, as well as being sealed in the temple and really keeping and cherishing those covenants together. 

Thank you everyone who came!
I love you!
So grateful tonight
XOXO

September 27th

If you told me a year ago I was going to be engaged at age nineteen, to a boy from Rigby, Idaho, that I met on Tinder, I would have laughed in your face.  Falling in love with Chris was unexpected but I guess falling in love always is.  To be honest from the first date on I have never been more happy or more motivated to be a better person.  Right off the bat Chris made me feel special and since then I’ve been treated to the standard of nothing less than Princess. Chris is kind hearted, passionate, creative, handsome, and absolutely perfect for me.  All I can say about dating Chris is that he was unlike anyone I have ever dated and as cheesy as it sounds I knew the right one came along.  So happy I am engaged to my best friend and that I get to be the luckiest girl in the world.
