My husband eats my crazy cooking

I love my husband. I love him very much. He loves meat. I love carrots. This presents a potential problem, but the lovely husband is really nice to me. He eats anything that I cook and doesn't ever complain. Yesterday I made Indian food. Curry+naan bread= Jamie is in heaven. Jord gave it a 7 out of 10. I think that is high enough to allow me to repeat it, right? I think the bread made it worth it for him. It was so so yummy. I actually just ate leftovers for lunch:) I am lucky to have a nice husband, so tonight I'm making him spaghetti. Don't tell him that I use whole wheat noodles and fresh herbs. He doesn't need to know;)

The recipes to the curry and bread are on my pinterest board.

Baby Shower

Last Saturday I had the best day. I was able to help with my good friend, Sarah's, baby shower. She is going to have a baby boy some day soon now. I really hope everyone liked the shower as much as I did, because I really thought it was awesome. Everyone there was so nice and loved Sarah a lot. I am so lucky to have such great friends!!

Honeymoons are 100% essential

Jordan may be embarrassed by this video, but it was basically the only one we took, and I like it, so let's keep it between us. Yeah? Our honey moon was heaven. We flew to Florida and stayed there for new years eve. The next day we got on a boat and turned off all communication with the outside world for 7 days. Our cruise was beautiful. We had two eventful moments that stick out in my memory.

One was when J was playing a trivia game in the big theater. It was called the last man standing. I played, and got out pretty fast. Jordan, however, was one of the last two standing. Now this was a game in front of a lot of people, given we did not know them, but there were a lot. The host walked up to Jordan for the first time in the game and said, "Man that is a massive hickey!" I am not sure that the word used was massive. It may have been sweet, huge, awesome, but you get the point. Jordan of course was very proud. I was very embarrassed. He ended up loosing to a trick question in the end, but the host gave him a meddle anyway to hide the hickey. It was a pretty funny moment and people never looked at us the same after.

The next moment happened in the bedroom. It wasn't anything like you're thinking so get your mind out of that gutter. We were watching a movie and I decided to try to kind of arm wrestle Jord in the air. I was just restless and wanted to show my strength. Well my biceps are strong, but my wrists are not. My wrist gave out precisely when his fist was above my nose. His fist flew down and popped me. I was positive that it was broken, but it is not. I can now also say that I have been punched in the nose.

Jordan and I loved our honeymoon. It was full of love, food, laughter and swimming. I highly recommend them to everyone!!

Our big day!

To begin this post, I have to give credit to all the beautiful pictures. One of my favorite people took them for us, my sister:) You can check out her site if you are cool. It is jenniferberryphotography.com.








The wedding day was absolutely amazing. BEST day ever. Couldn't have been better. The wedding was the first event and it happened at 3 in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. It was really nice to have the entire morning to anticipate the joy to come. I really did love the temple. It is a fantastic place.

After the wedding we went to celebrate in Wadley Farms in Lindon. My mom and sisters helped set everything up and everything looked amazing. The cake was done by my good friend Julia Hess and I was so grateful for her. I had to ask her to do it a week before our day! She really deserves a million dollars for the friend that she is to me. I had the best bridesmaids and the husband ended up with the best groomsmen. They helped a lot and it was just great to have close friends to celebrate with.

I mentioned that my sister, Jen, did my pictures. She did so much work and did it all in the most graceful way. Everything was laid back, simple, fun and the pictures turned out amazing. I will cherish them for a very long time, and then my kids will cherish them. I have the best siblings. My other sister, Kara, did my hair and helped with my makeup. I love her very much for putting up with my picky-ness.

Starting the day at 3 was the best decision that I ever made. It wasn't too long or tiring. I enjoyed each and every min. I wasn't watching the clock or rubbing sore feet. I am so lucky to be married to such a sweet man. I love him more every minute!
