zucchini anyone?

Cort and I have had a wonderful week, and we've cooked a pretty fun meal everyday this week. On Sunday a couple from our new ward came over bringing us a huge zucchini from their garden as a "welcome to the ward" gift. So Cort and I found different recipes so we can use up this delicious gift!
Tuesday we made Lemon Zucchini Fettuccine. 
On Wednesday, we made no zucchini related dish, surprisingly. We did however make homemade pizza! We got a pizza stone as a wedding gift, and we've put it to good use. A little pepperoni, and green pepper pizza.

Thursday we went zucchini crazy and made grilled stuffed zucchini.
I felt so healthy. 

Finally, today was Friday and I made my sister Nichole's Minestrone soup. Nichole's Blog
I remembered when I visited her one time she made it and it was my favorite meals of hers. Also it just so happened that Cort's grandma surprised us and came last night. We had the family over and the soup was great.

After the soup we had homemade mint and chocolate chip ice cream that Cort made! It was the bomb.

our wedding

Cort and I's wedding day was so incredibly perfect. It was almost three weeks ago, so it's about time we're posting some pictures. Just some details about the wedding. We were sealed for time and all eternity in the Sacramento LDS temple. The day of the wedding was the best day of my life. Cort and I were so happy to be married, and be able experience the day with family and friends. Our reception was the next day. We had it at night, by the lake, and the weather was perfect. We had music and dancing, and all the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and even Cort jumped in the pool in the end. It was definitely the best party I've ever been to. My aunt Annette was our photographer. Check out her blog  at 

My sisters Jordan and Sheridan sang us "Can't Help Falling in Love" for our first dance. Since Cort was convinced "Teenage Dream" -not so lovey Katy Perry song- was our song, I was glad to have my sisters step in to play us some real music.

Of course Cort doesn't have his shirt on. It's kinda his thing.
He had jumped in the pool, in his suit.

hello bloggin world. here comes chort.

We're pretty excited. We'll post all about our wedding when we get more pictures. But for now, here is our old house. It's pretty cute. We live on the first floor. This is a little introduction about my husband. Two days ago we finally met the couple that lives on the second floor. Cort was outside, with his megaphone (don't understand why he has that thing), and he was yelling for our friend KC, who was trying to find our house. Sadly, this was at the same time our neighbors got home. Cort thought the wife was KC, so he put the megaphone right in her face, yelling at her. The wife was checking their mail which is right outside out door. My Cort is so good with first impressions.

This is our living room! Cort made that projector screen a couple days after we moved in.

And here is my cute kitchen. I'm a wife now, so I guess I'll use it.
