Our Love Story

Chauncey and Jenni
Hello! this is just our little blog about our life. I (Jenni) wanted to start this blog after Chauncey proposed to me, sort of an online journal/way to let people know how we are doing.

About Us
Chauncey graduated from the University of Utah with a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering (with a minor in spanish) in May 2012. He currently works for L-3 Communications. Chauncey plans to continue his education by getting an Electrical Engineering masters and an MBA. I am still going to school and plan to graduate with a bachelors in Elementary Education.

How We Met
Chauncey and I met at an institute dance at the U. I saw him dancing by our group and thought he was really cute, but I figured he would never ask me to dance since no one ever asks me to dance at those things (I was mainly remembering those terrible church youth dances, did anyone like those?). During the dance I received a phone call so I had to step out for a bit. It turns out that during the time I was away, Chauncey was looking for me so he could ask me to dance. By the time I got back to the dance, it was over and my ride was ready to go. As we were walking towards our car, Chauncey and his friend came up and walked with us (pretending their car was near ours, it wasn't) and started up a conversation with us. The whole time I was thinking "oh my goodness, he is so cute. Too bad nothing will come of it." Before I knew it, Shareese (my ride) invited them over to her place to hang out. Oh boy, I am forever grateful for that. So we all went back to her place and we talked and hung out. Chauncey and I got to know eachother better and I found myself liking him more and more by the minute. Before long it was one in the morning and I figured I had better go home, so I found someone to give me a ride and I said goodbye to a few people. Before I left I went back and said goodbye to Chauncey (secretly hoping he would ask me for my number) and guess what he did? He asked me for my number so he could take me out on a date. I was ecstatic! I couldn't believe it, this never happens to me so I was really happy. That all happened Saturday, and Chauncey called me Monday (I was on the edge of my seat waiting for his phone call, I was just a tad worried he wouldn't call for wahtever reason.) He called and we planned our date for that next saturday. Then on tuesday we talked again. Wednesday he invited me to a Fraternity activity. I don't think we talked thursday, but Friday he invited me to a have free hot dogs with him at the institute and then go to a gymnastic meet. After the meet we went back to his friends house and watched a movie, and Chauncey and I cuddled...Best night ever. I could not wipe the smile off my face. Saturday was our official first date and we went to a Chilean restraunt and then we went nighttime sledding. It was a blast...Oh and we might've kissed :) He hasn't stopped kissing me since <3

Best day ever. This is the day Chauncey and I got married, in the SLC temple for time and all eternity. I'm so happy I get to spend eternity with my best friend. <3
