two post's in one day :)

Lately people have been asking me why I don't put recipes on my blog anymore.. to tell u the truth I forgot I used to do that! so my new goal is to put one new recipe a week on my blog. I am all about great quick meals, seeing as I work all day and don't get home till seven I want something I can cook fast or leave in the crock pot all day. This last year I have been on a kick where I try at least one new recipe a week, and it has not failed me yet! ( well maybe once :) ).

So here is the recipe for this week:
Sweet and Spicy slow cook chicken
I love slow-cooker meals. They are easy, low-maintenance and usually quite delicious. This met all of the above criteria! Sweet and spicy shredded chicken served in flour tortillas with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and sour cream. The chicken was moist and flavorful and was the perfect solution to a weeknight meal that needed something more than your average, everyday taco.

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts1

(14 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes, undrained

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Coat the inside of your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Place all ingredients in the crock pot. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours, or until chicken shreds very easily with a fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Chicken will absorb liquid after it is shredded.) Serve in tacos or however your little heart desires. I love serving the taco in the uncooked tortillas from Costco, they are the best!! you just heat them up on your stove for about 30 seconds!

Everybodys working for the weekend

I get a four day weekend! I am so excited yeah!!!! I get Saturday off and since Monday is a holiday we get paid so I get take Tuesday off so I don't get overtime, I'm loving life right now.

Oh it was so lovely being away for the week! I can not begin to describe how much this vacation was needed. Tuesday night my mom and grandma drove from California and stayed with us then we all drove together Wednesday to good old Montana. It was sooo good to see everyone!!! I have missed them all so much. It was so nice of the Bendheims to have us. We ate lots of yummy food, played games, and were on the lake all day. Chase got up for his first time ever on the wake board! thanks to the help of peter, redge, john, and brad :) they were great instructors. It was nice to just wake up in the morning, go on walks, come home and just walk down to the lake. And all three of my nephews were loved like crazy. Chase and I were so excited to see them! little Lukey just loved chase, i think its because anytime i couldn't find Chase he would be in the play room with Luke or Joshua or Tanner, chase loved playing with those boys. It was a great trip and chase and i loved every minute ( except the night he got heat poisoning... that wasn't fun). My sister and our nephew LukeMy Brother Johnny showing his stuff :)Johnny and my amazing Grandmamy brothers John and Brad in the cuzzi with their boysMy Dad and nephew LukeMy sister Lori, her amazing husband Haws ( chris :) ) and PeterMy brother Brad wake boarding even with a sprained ankle!Brooke, john, Kori and the boys before our walkSexy Chase, my nephew Joshua and Johnny skipping rocksMy amazing parents on our hikeChase and I playing in the woodsA Game of intense Phase ten.

I was looking at my dads website the other day ( , and stumbled across this video on youtube. Who knew my dad and his best bud Allen King were such a great rappers :) He is not in the first video but check out the next two. He is Bob Davis, the GET man :) oh how I love him and his awesome mustache! no wonder why he kept his commercials from the old dealer ship hidden from me when I was young, but thanks to youtube I found it years later :). These were made in the 80's and how I wish I knew about them back then. And if anyone needs a Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge you know where to come now.. the GET man!!!!!

After watching these videos it made me want to go back in time... I think Chase looks sexy with a mullet, dont you think?

The fourth

What a way to celebrate our independence  :) Chase and I spent all day together which is a first in so long, so we relaxed had fun then went and BBQed it up with our good friends Rand and Chelsey and our cousin Rory and his daughter Shaylee, Marielle had to work but she joined us later. We went up the canyon and had a BBQ at the prettiest park.

Chelsey made the cutest cake!

We then went down back to Provo and watched the stadium of fire firework show with another another couple in our ward Lauren and Tyson, 

as Rand was singing the theme song "stadium of fire" haha, Marielle got to take a break from work and joined us as well.

 All in all it was a great day, spent with great friends and amazing food. Of course we did have to wait two hours before driving back home because traffic was so bad. Hope everyone had a great fourth! I can not wait till Wednesday, we are going up with my whole family to Montana :) i cant wait to see everyone!!! I'm so excited!!!!

One Year!

I am a little late on this but I have not had much time to blog lately. Chase and I celebrated our one year anniversary on May 30. I cant believe how fast the time goes! I love him more and more everyday and I am so thankful for him and all he does. We celebrated first by getting massages :) I love massages! We got a couple massage before and I told myself I would never do that again... looking over and seeing another women rub your husband isn't something
 I want to see again, so this time we had our own rooms :) we then went to Park City for the
 weekend. I loved it, we stayed at a Marriott and it was our own little villa with a kitchen, fire place, two bathrooms, It was perfect!!! we spent the weekend eating, sleeping, going on the
 Alpine slides, watching movies and just spending a care free weekend with each other. It was the best! It is funny, even though Chase and I have not been together that long, I don't remember what my life was like before him. It feels as though we have always been together. He is my best friend and makes me laugh everyday and I cant wait to spend many more years together! We were alone on our anniversary together so we don't have any pictures together, so sorry everyone!
