Why Brooke and Jane?
The name of this blog is pretty simple, it's our middle names. We thought about trying something a little whittier that said a little more about us, or our lives, but Brooke and Jane just seemed right. Brooke is Danica's middle name, while Jane is Jessica's. We are sister-in-laws living in Utah!
All About Us
Where do I start! This blog has been in the works for awhile, I knew it was something I wanted to do, but I am not the type to just jump into something. I like to plan and organize, educate myself on the topic, and know just what I’m doing. A tad bit of a perfectionist you could say. I have been following all sorts of blogs trying to figure out the kind I wanted. I am indecisive, so I decided, why not do an everything blog! I love opportunities to be creative, so I am excited to add another outlet for that creativity to my life. I am also a terrible journal keeper so this will somewhat act as that, and keep track of my comings and goings. I have never been much of a social media type, I like to be present in my moments and take in all the details, instead of busy snapping 50 thousand pictures and posting them for everyone to see. Unfortunately that has led to me having very little photo evidence of my life. I am hoping this blog will help me with that!
I am a hair stylist and aesthetician at Suggestions Salon in Orem, UT. I currently work as a personal assistant during the day a company called Marketstar, I sit in a cubicle…being the creative person that I am a cubicle is definitely not a place I ever imagined myself. Luckily I still get to do hair at night, and on the weekends. It is such a fun and rewarding job, I love my clients!
What else can I tell you about myself, lets see. I am a sister to one brother, I come from a small family. I was born in UT and will probably be here for the rest of my days. I am on the quiet side, I just like to take things in. I hate winter and snow, summer completes me! I love the sun, laying out, boating, running, reading, camping, four wheeling, jet skiing, and doing hair. I tend to lean towards the healthy side of things, always looking for ways to eat better, and exercise more.
My husband's name is Jantzen, you won’t hear from him on this blog. He will just be behind the scenes working out all the technical difficulties that come with anything computer related. Jantzen is a tech wiz, and a hoarder of all things computer related. He just graduated from Utah Valley University with a degree in Information Systems. He is one of the smartest, most selfless people I know. We just had our 1st year anniversary, and I’m so excited to see what the future holds for us.
I'm a Texas girl, now living in Utah. I went to Dartmouth for undergrad, and BYU for law school. I am now working for a firm in downtown SLC practicing employment law, construction law, and commercial litigation. I love my job, and have known I would be a lawyer since the 4th grade. As much as I love the law (and the 4.5 billion hours I work a week(just kidding)), I still have to have other creative outlets in my life. Hence, I love throwing parties, cooking, decorating my new house, trying new makeup, shopping, and making pretty things. I'm always sending my friends suggestions for new products and clothes to try, thus the blog seems a natural extension of my current life.
I'm a perfectionist, A type personality, and an extremely hard worker. I love the Dallas Cowboys, autumn, diet dr. pepper, and snuggling up and reading a good book. I have the best friends in the world, a huge crazy family that I love with all my heart, and honest to goodness, the most amazing husband on earth.
I got married to Skyler in 2010, 2 weeks before I started law school. It's been a wild and crazy ride, and he handles it like a champ. He challenges me everyday to be a better me, and I can't imagine my life without him.
We are so excited to be starting this journey with all of you! Let us know what you are interested in hearing from us, and we will try our best to make it happen!
