this is halloween, this is halloween

J and I were gnomes this year at our ward halloween party-
it was so fun
I made the hats by myself! 
Can I get a woot woot for the crafty side of Ashley coming through??
yeah.



'Twas a grand time
I am so glad I have a hubby that will humor me and play dress-ups during halloween
Also, due to the convenient placement of the white beard and eye-brows on his red pointy hat, J has his christmas get-out all ready to go :)

P.S. Today, I am grateful for hard work.

motivation.

Man, you guys, I really need to get it together, and stop being a bum.
I went to Wal-mart and passed by this little rug that had this slogan on in like four times, and I think it was trying to tell me something... haha


So by posting it on here, I am hoping the social context will give me a little boost.
I really want to leave a good mark on Provo while we are still here, but man it's hard when you know that you are leaving in just 2 months!

P.S. Today I am thankful for my amazing wonderful husband.

there is no such thing as chance

Friday night, Jase and I ran to maceys to grab some treats for a movie date night. We missed the turn we usually take to get there, and had to drive to the far side of the parking lot to get there. As we were pulling in, we saw the most beautiful sight. There, sitting on the corner, was a homeless man. He was dirty, and had all of his personal belongings there on the sidewalk next to him. But on the other side of him, was a young man, with one hand holding the Book of Mormon, and the other around the homeless man, reading to him. They seemed to be in their own world, and I feel so blessed to be able to have witnessed the scene. I don't know either of them, but It inspired me to want to be more like that young man. I know that if I open my schedule for him, the savior will help me find time to bless other's lives with his gospel. I don't think it was a chance thing that We were able to see this scene. Recently, as I was going to study my scriptures, I opened right to Mormon 8:39. Maybe the lord is trying to tell me something... All I know is that I am awfully excited to be less focused on me, and more focused on how I can help others. The lord, I am sure, can move mountains through me if I let him.


P.S. Today, I am thankful for Chocolate.

yogurt mustache

So a week or so ago, my funny brother-in-law, Nate, was telling me a story about a guy at his work who got written up for picking his nose. (Nathan is a chef up at the Sundance resort.) The way they knew he picked his nose was that he got a jalopeneo (I don't know how to spell that) burn up his nose after he had just chopped some of the little peppers up...

I laughed.

Fast forward to yesterday...
I decided to make salsa. Yes. Salsa. You know where this is going.
I realized that I had all of the ingredients for it (thanks to my awesome mother-in-law and her luscious garden),  except for jalopeneos... actually I remembered that I needed those after thinking about Nate's funny story.

So I go to the grocery store. Grabbed a little jalopeneo and jot back home. The whole time I am thinking to myself that I really should remember to not touch my face after I chop up the little, harmless looking pepper. 

True to my form, I did end up sub-counciously scratching the inside of my nose. It was very gradual, but it surely did start burning. I tried to wash it off, but it got worse, and spread to my upper lip. (Jason was a very good husband, and for the most part kept his cool, and didn't laugh)

Google is actually what came to the rescue! (I was a little too embarrassed to call Nate... haha!) I googled what to do when you have a jalopeneo burn up your nose... and they said to snort milk (Which I thought was a little un-ladylike. Instead I just soaked a cotton ball and shoved it up my nose. Pure heaven I tell you! But it didn't quite take care of the mustache area, so I ran back to macey's, and grabbed some yogurt and applied it to the burn right there in the parking lot! (This is where Jase lost his cool and started laughing his head off. I didn't mind though, I was so happy for the pain to stop) 



The pictures are actually hilarious! ( I wasn't in the mood to smile) Jase took them during his little laughing spell... gotta say, though, the salsa was worth the pain.


P.S. Today, I am grateful for Sarah.

ellen.


Dear Ellen,

I was looking through some of my old pictures, and I found this gem. Man, I miss ya, El. I was sitting here trying to figure out why I haven't talked to you in forever... probably because I am a flake. I think I might be a little nervous to... I don't know why! Crazy how time does that to people. I hope you're loving boston with your new hubby! It's crazy to think that I've been there for that from the beginning. When it comes to a perfect couple, You two are unrivaled. I love you, girl.

Love, Ash

P.S. Today I am thankful for my Brown Hair! :)

Ailing.

Am I using the fact that I was sick on monday as an excuse to why I haven't posted for the last month?
Why Yes. Yes I am.
I think my poor blog is looking a little picture bare, and this simply will not do.
Let's fix this:

A collage of my favorite things:

These cafe lights that I have and don't know where to put... because they are way to cute to put just anywhere, and apartment living just isn't quite right for them


Couple time with my husband.


This outfit from Anthro... I am dying for these jeans!!


Summer swims. I love them. I miss them already.


As soon as I can find my cable to hook up my camera to the computer, i will be sharing my awesome photography skills from the last month too, but until then... Auf Veeterzain!

P.S. Today I am grateful for Ice Cream Sodas from SOS drug... Mmmm!

7-1-1988

I'm sitting here, after picking my husband up after work, and waiting for him to wake up from a nap and celebrate my birthday... It's times like these that can really get you thinking. Thinking about the last year.

Last year, on this exact same day, I was on my way to an ex-boyfriend's wedding reception, just so I could see some friends from the old college town.

Last year, on this exact same day, I saw my friend Tess at that same wedding reception, and invited her come down and visit me the next day.

Last year, on this exact same day, Tess told me about this boy who she had a crush on and wanted to see while she was down here... some guy named Jason or something.



Exactly a year ago from today, I started one of the most exciting journeys of my life... and while it's fun to look back and see what has changed, and who I haven't talked to, because my phone keeps deleting contact's numbers and I don't see my old girlies enough to get their numbers back...

I can't help but feel grateful for how much I've grown in this last year

and if year 23 helps me grow as much as 22 did,
I will be one lucky lady.


P.S. Today, I am thankful for Jason's homemade cake. mmmm.....

my love life.

hello, my name is Ashley Jensen,
I am married,
and now that I'm married, and honeymooned,
I am ready to get on with life! haha
but since my blog hasn't been written on since
the druglord incident,
I must update, and I will be more
consistant since normal life is going to start soon!
Can I get a woot woot?!

I got married on June 4th, 2011
in the provo temple

It was beautiful!
As soon as I get pictures from the lovely Heather Kennington, I will post them on here!

Waiting to go to the temple was the best decision I could have ever made.
It was amazing, and no feeling on this earth can compare to the feeling you get as you are sealed to the love of your life, not only for time, but even after that!

(Sappy love content ahead, read at your own discresion)

Jason is the most amazing man I know.
No one is quite as funny, optimistic, incredibly sweet, or thoughtful as this wonderful hunk of a man is! I feel like such a nutcase sometimes, and no one else can make me feel as sane as he does!

He is so perfect for me

Bah! I can't even explain how much I LOVE him!

And I CAN'T even wait to start our new life together!
Stay tuned for updates on my new life as Mrs. J.



P.S. Today, I'm thankful for trucks to carry couches to our new cute apartment.

Drug Lords... My anti-drug.

Dear Drug Lords on the Mexico boarder:

You have come very close to ruining my honeymoon multiple times.
enough is enough.
No one likes your drugs anyway.
They smell bad.
I am afraid the cause that you're fighting for is actually ruining your countries tourist economy.
Please go away? Please?

For now though, We will be sticking to the good 'ole USA!
And OUR tourist dollars will be going to boosting America's suffering economy instead.

So I guess I should thank you!
Thank you, Drug Lords, for helping me to be more patriotic.

Sincerely (There's no love comin your way from me, sorry bud),
-Ash bash cash dash.

P.S. Today I am thankful for Food.

Some Stats

I have been dating J for 10 months now.
I have been engaged to him for 6 of them.
We have 46 days left until we are married.
I will become officially and legally insane this friday...
don't worry, I'll be back to normal come June 5th.
It's a temporary thing.
I think.

Enough of the Stats.

What I do to pass time and make it go faster:

Take Jason on suprise dates! haha
I know it's the boy's job, but I seriously love suprising him with these dates!

The last one was especially fun. I grabbed gandolfo's sandwiches, a tablecloth, a sign that said "This table is reserved for the Future Mr. and Mrs. Jensen" and wisked him off to the cougar eat the eat it!! hahaha. The looks we got were hilarious!

There is alot of good people watching to do in the cougar eat... especially around 7.
(The freshmen are all on on dates then) Hahahaha

Anyway, Thanks for a good laugh, Cougar Eat.


This pic was taken on the third day of knowing each other... our first kind of date... and our first kiss! haha.

we are a funny/weird couple.

P.S. Today, I'm thankful for work.

Just to tide us over

it's been a little while...
Do you notice what day it is??
APRIL 8th
I should be getting my official engagements done today, but we decided to think better of it due to the
snow.
We rescheduled for the 11th instead.
But since it's my day off, and I have a sister that was funny and took some pictures of J and I at the beach last week, I edited them, and they actually turned out pretty neat!

My real engagements are going to be legit, though!! So excited!

My wedding is going for a kind of garden party/kentucky derby feel, and Heather has a whole bunch of plans to make the pictures go with the theme- I am so so so excited!!!

Here are a few of the beach pictures, though:

















Should tide us over until we get the real ones up!

P.S. Today, I am grateful for Pizza Picnics with my sweetheart
