About Jenni Elyse

Hi, I’m Jenni Elyse! You can call me Jenni. I’m wife to Corey and cat mom to Dax and Izzy. We live in Utah, USA.

Welcome to my blog. When I’m not actively engaging in short-term pleasant events and taking action steps toward my values, I’m less able to regulate my emotions and NOT act on ineffective urges (e.g. self-harm, rage quit a desired activity, damage a positive relationship). I enjoy reading; taking bubble baths; drinking herbal tea or hot chocolate; drawing on my iPad; playing my Switch; watching movies; dyeing my hair; crafting, mostly in the form of crocheting and knitting; listening to music; and spending time with my husband, cats, and friends.

I’m a seeker of all things purple, I love animals especially cats and llamas , and I’m a member of the Harry Potter , How to Train Your Dragon, Futurama, Star Wars , Twilight, and Zelda fandoms.

Favorite Movies

My all-time favorite movies are the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy. I think they’re brilliant in every way! (Toothless is my patronus and/or dæmon. Take your pick depending on your fandom. ) I Star Wars.

I adore every single movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and frequently have MCU marathons with Corey.

I also love the Back to the Future trilogy, the Indiana Jones series, the Men in Black series, the Mission: Impossible series, the Pirates of the Caribbean series (#justiceforJohnnyDepp), the new Star Trek trilogy, Clue, Down with Love, The Emperor’s New Groove, Far and Away, Galaxy Quest, Jurassic Park, Lilo & Stitch, Moulin Rouge, So I Married an Axe Murderer, and Wild Hearts Can’t be Broken.

Favorite TV Shows

My current favorite TV shows are The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, Nancy Drew, Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, The Orville, His Dark Materials, Motherland, Bridgerton, Disenchantment, Lego Masters, and last but not least any Disney+ MCU show. I’m addicted to cooking competition shows much to Corey’s chagrin. Some of my favorites are MasterChef, MasterChef Junior, Hell’s Kitchen, Halloween Baking Championship, Holiday Baking Championship, Spring Baking Championship, Kids Baking Championship, and Zumbo’s Just Desserts.

I’m still in mourning over the end of White Collar and New Girl. I Supernatural and I was sad to see it end, but I feel like it had a good run and a good ending. I’m obsessed with LOST and its characters and make my way through the series every few years. Above all, I’m a fan of Futurama and I’m part of an Internet campaign to bring it back. Again.
