Weekend Shinanigans

This past weekend was the weekend of double dates. On Friday night we doubled with Tyler's friend Jarrett and his date to the coolest little restaurant called Station 22. Ty and I have made it a goal that we have to go to restaurants we've never been before and try new things and this place did NOT disappoint. I adore a place with a chill, amazing atmosphere and this place nailed it. From the art on the walls to the cute mason jars they served their drinks in I was in love with Station 22. Not to mention their food is SO good. It's country-styled food and Tyler and I recommend getting the Station 22 Club sandwich, the Chicken and Waffles, or the Pig and Cheese (that last one sounds kind of gross but trust me. It's pulled pork with green apple slices and gourmet cheese goodness… you won't regret it.) They also have this cool soda wall in the back where instead of getting your regular water or diet coke in a mason jar you can go pick a bottle of soda off the wall for your drink. And they aren't normal sodas either!! Tyler got butterscotch root beer and I got peaches and cream soda. We also tried a coconut nutmeg soda that was to die for. So after dining at Station 22 we went right next door to a comedy club to watch an improv show. Classic provo date right there ;)

Saturday night we went with our friends Allie and Brady to the Blue Iguana for dinner (correction.. this is not the RED iguana which is also delicious. This is the BLUE Iguana) Again with the atmosphere thing… this place is pretty cool. You walk down these stairs into the basement of an old brick building to this darling Mexican Food restaurant with different levels and cool decorations. Plus they have an eating challenge where if you finish their grande burrito (which is literally as long as my arm or as big as a newborn infant) you can get dessert for your whole table. Tyler tried it a couple years ago… and didn't quite finish it… ok he ate barely half. ha ha ha! It's HUGE!!! After dinner we partied it up at the Jazz game which we WON!! :) Jazz games are just so fun! :) And especially fun with awesome friends!

Our Wedding Day! November 20, 2014

Tyler and I got married on a sunny yet freezing fall day in November. This is going to sound cheesy but it really was, in every way, the best day of my life. My favorite part was the sealing in the Salt Lake Temple. I really don't remember what was said, all I remember was the way I felt looking at Tyler and how he looked at me as we were sealed. We were so beyond ourselves happy we bawled like two babies. I felt so much love from all my family and close friends who were there to celebrate our marriage after this long journey Tyler and I have had.

The rest of the day was incredible. With the help of many people I literally planned and achieved my dream wedding. Free-spirited with sort of an elegant boho theme. We put so much work into every little detail and our amazing photographer Kristina went above and beyond herself to capture it all! I literally died when we got our wedding video (will post that soon) and our pictures back. Our day couldn't have been documented more perfectly! 

The reception was seriously so fun and I was on cloud nine seeing so many friends and family who came to celebrate with us. Our best high school friends came as well as my group of friends from UVU!! Seriously made. my. night. We just felt so loved and in love with each other. 

I really tried to narrow these pictures down. I promise! I even debated whether or not to split this post into two parts! But I decided to just go ahead and post all my favorites because it tells the story of our day. Above all I am so grateful to be married to Tyler. No one truly gives married life enough credit. It's not always easy, but it's worth it in every possible way. Waking up to someone who loves you so unconditionally is the best feeling. Taking on the world with him is all I'll ever want and need.
