WE ARE ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!

So tonight Chase proposed! I was taken by total surprise! We are both leaving for our home towns for Christmas so we decided to exchange presents tonight. So Chase came over and we opened presents and after opening them Chase wanted to put in a Christmas movie. He went upstairs and picked out a movie and brought it back downstairs. I was sitting on the couch as he put the movie in and all of a sudden one of our songs came on "all cause of you" by the 88's and he made a DVD of pictures of him growing up with little captions and then pictures of me growing up with captions (my mom emailed Chase the pictures way back in October!) and then pictures of us dating and at the end it said Dana, will you marry me and he got down on his knee and proposed! It was amazing I was crying and could not even get words the word yes out of my mouth! Chase was like "did you say yes yet?" and gave me a dozen beautiful red roses!! I could not be happier right now. I am so lucky to have found Chase and cant wait to spend the rest of my life with him!!!! sorry for not being so cute in these pictures but i did not know that I was going to be proposed to!!!! enjoy!

whats for dinner?

I have been trying this new thing where I cook different recipes at least once a week that i have never ate or cooked before. I have just wanted to try new things to see what I like and lucky enough for me Chase will eat anything! He has been such a sport going through this with me :) But I have to say last night was a hit! My roommate told me about this chicken with Dr. Pepper in it. It sounded so gross but Chase loves Dr. Pepper so i thought I would try it. I loved it! the chicken was so moist! It was sweet, had a little kick to it and was oh so yummy! I made it with rolls and dipped the rolls in the extra sauce.. you all need to make it!

1 C. BBQ sauce.. any kind you like...
1 C. Dr.Pepper
1 T. brown sugar
Salt and Pepper
4-6 Boneless skinless chicken breast

thaw chicken sprinkle to taste with salt and pepper put in 9 by 13 pan.
mix BBQ sauce and Dr. Pepper pour on top of chicken and sprinkle brown sugar on top. Cook at 350 for one hour... enjoy!

Winter Wonderland

Well it finally snowed! I woke up Saturday morning and there was at least three feet of snow outside. I was so excited! I just love the snow. I called Chase to tell him the exciting news and he did not seem as thrilled as me haha. So I went downstairs blared Christmas music and drank hot apple cider.. it was the best. Chase and I decided that it would be so pretty to go to Temple Square so we invited our friends Rebekah and Nick to come with us. It was such a pretty night, I loved all the snow on the trees even though it was FREEZING it was worth it. We then had a Gingerbread decoration party.. it was actually a lot harder then it looks! I was having a really hard time getting my house to stay up. It's sad to admit this but Chase's turned out a lot better then mine. I love this time of the year.. it is my favorite. Just looking outside at the snow and all the decorations and lights makes me so happy.. Happy Holidays!

BeforeIn BetweenAfter.. Chase, Dana, Logan, Rebekah, and Lisa.. Rebekah's won by a long shot
