Much Needed Update!

Wow the past 3 months have been so busy! In the middle of October I got to fly home for market. It was so fun to see the kids and they were so cute getting all ready for Halloween.


Ryan is so funny with the kids!

Ok so for Thanksgiving we got to spend it with my family. It was awesome to go home and be able to just hang out. We made the whole 22 hour drive straight through. We went with Lindsey and Whitney Beck, even with 4 drivers it was a very long drive, but the best part is... we brought Puckett with us. We took her to a family friend to get fixed and de-clawed. She was a champ on the drive. Puckett was defiantly the hit of the week though, the kids loved her and Kim was able to rekindle her love for cats. A week later Ryan (who doesn't love cats) decided that his whole family did, so he got them a kitten for part of Christmas (Check out her blog, it is so cute) We had so much fun and it was so great for my family to get to know Matt better.

This picture is out of order, but Matt grew a beard right b4 we left for Texas.
They were looking for frogs.

Puckett was trying to recover from her surgery but had lots of visitors.
I love this picture. We kept telling them how gentle they had to be. Well Maddison totally knew what that meant and look at her with her hand on James's back reminding him.

Yes there are 3 sets of feet in there.

James was trying to put a game piece up Matt's nose and thought it was very funny.
Matt gave me the best birthday ever! New shoes, massage, facial, and a great dinner at the Melting pot. He is the best husband ever.

Since I can remember our family has had mystery trips. While we were all home my mom planned one to the Toy Train exhibited in Dallas, it was so much fun. The kids loved it and it was really cool.
The Conductors.
Dallas ski line in the exhibit.

James is so handsome! He is the cutest little boy. He just runs around talking to himself and laughing, its great.
We did a little shopping and my dad had Maddison on his shoulders, I couldn't resist. She is so funny and always has this little problem. If she hears you mention "butt crack" she turns and gives you this attitude face and pulls up her pants. It is so adorable she has the best personality.

Christine is married! The wedding was awesome, we had lots of family and friends come, it was great to see everyone. This was all the girls the night b4 when we went to dessert.

Chris is so beautiful!

Jonathan getting adopted into the family.

They are the cutes couple ever! We really like Johnny and are so excited for the new addition.

My Matt

Where did you meet?
On October 16, 2007, My friends and I went out to eat at Carrabbas where Matt worked. He was our server and was totally cute and funny. So I left him my number on the back of my receipt with a thank you. Matt called the next day but I was leaving to go out of town for market and saved his cute message and forgot about it. Later that week I heard the message and called him back, he was all "What kind of girl leaves her number for someone and then does not call them back?" Well we hung out the night I got back in town. (Oct. 25) He was over till 4 in the morning, There was no going back from there, I was totally hooked!

How long did you date before you were married?
We saw each other every single day after we first hung out. After a long Christmas apart thats when we decided we never wanted to be apart again. ( I actually called it to my mom at Thanksgiving that Matt would be the man I marry) We dated for 3 months and were engaged for 3 months. Dont worry we have known each other for one year and have been married for half of it.

How long have you been married?
6 months. It has been amazing.

What does he do that surprised you?
I know that we did not date for very long but there have not been very many surprises. Matt is just as wonderful now as he was when we were dating. He always opens the door for me, he is thoughtful, patient, caring, and is always helpful. We are a very spontaneous couple so it is hard to surprise either of us. There are 2 small surprises: For one, he is so clean. I love living with him. He always is picking up after himself, helping with the laundry and loading/ unloading the dishwasher. But he doesnt like making the bed. The second, he has this pillow that he sleeps with, that goes between his knees. I call it his crotch pillow and I am not a fan of it because some how in the night, it ends up on my side of the bed :)

What is your favorite feature about him?
That is a hard question. He is amazingly perfect to me. I love everything about him. He has the sexiest eyes, cutest smile, softest hair, and is the perfect hight.

What is your favorite quality about him?
Everything. He is the most selfless person I know. Matt is always putting me first. He has such a desire to serve. He is so funny and easy going. Matt is hard working, passionate, thoughtful, outgoing, spiritual, and the list goes on and on.

Does he have a nickname for you?
He calls me babe a lot but thats about it. When he want to embarrass me in public he comes up with some pretty creative ones.

What is his favorite color?
Red. When ever we are playing a game that has a red player choice, that will be Matt.

What is his favorite food?
Most anything. Because I am such a horrible cook, he wont let that secret out, I dont think he wants me to attempt it.

What is his favorite sport?
All of them. Matt is very athletic, he played a lot of tennis and golf out here.

Who said "I love you" first?
That would be me. We had just spent our first time apart from each other the Christmas after we met. It was the longest 2 weeks of my life. And the night he got back and I saw him, I was dying to say it but was scared and I wanted to wait for him. Well I could not help it and the next night we were making out ( catching up on lost time from the previous 2 weeks :) and I just said it. He was so sweet when he said it back. But Matt did let it slip once before that, we were out to dinner and laughing and he goes "I freaking love you" I knew he was just talking so I acted like I didnt hear him.

When and Where was your first kiss?
So after the first week we hung out, he walked me to car in the freezing cold and kissed me. (please, we would have kissed before that but I had a fever blister) It was very much anticipated and perfect.

What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?
Anything and everything where we can be together. We get so busy with school and work that we decided that Saturdays are our days to be together, all day. That is the highlight of our week.

Do you have any kids?
No, we have a cat and it will stay that way for a very long time.

What is a hidden talent that he has?
:) Dancing.

How old is he?
26 years old.

What is his favorite type of music?
Matt is very well versed in this area. He really like everything but country (sad) and really like musicals.

What do you admire most about him?
Matt is amazing. He is the most laid back person I know. He never gets worked up with out cause and he can handle any situation. Plus Matt is a forever optimist.

What is his favorite past time?
He is basically down for anything. He just loves to do anything not school or work related.

Do you think he will read this?

Tag! Everyone.

Still in Dallas

I am so sick of traveling! i have been in texas for a week and fly back today. i am so excited! i feel like i just got back from Chicago when i needed to leave for dallas. i am so grateful for the opportunity to travel with Terani but i can not wait to see Matt tonight!! I have a nice break of markets over the holidays, then start up again in January for Dallas, then Vegas, then Atlanta...

So i have been doing these markets for 7 years now which after the first day of market, i swear that i will never do it again. so i suffer through the following 3 days and usually when i leave the forth day i think to myself, "never doing that again,"  Then i get a pay check and the process starts all over for the next market. 

This market, i went to a showroom that i had worked in about 7 years ago at one of my second or third markets ever. well i really really don't like this particular showroom, but this is where Terani is located so i was stuck in the showroom i hate. So after the first hour i was thinking to myself "Never doing this again" But i really did mean it. Then i heard someone yell my name from behind me and jump on me. It turn out that one of my best friends Annette was modeling for the showroom as well. Just a little bit about Annette, we have been good friends since we were 14 years old and have way way way to many stories and embarrassing facts about each other.  

So it turns out that this was an awesome market because i had someone i knew there with me to goof off with. We have only modeled together in the same showroom once when we were 17 and had a blast. So when i was changing into my first dress, annette looked at me in front of everyone and said, "wow sher, i have not seen you naked in a long time." oh to have that 17 year old body again. it was pretty funny though.

The key to market: take someone you love with you. thats why this time was fun and chicago was awesome too. think matt want to play dress up for 4 days straight? 

Well i am not spell or grammar checking this because my mom and i are off to buy samples! hopefully i can find something cool for matt!

But she is the most adorable thing ever. Matt even loves her! She gets so cuddly and cute and then when she plays she is a crazy cat! it is so much fun!

We are not supposed to have pets... so it is a big secret!

Chicago is amazing! At the beginning of this month I went to Chicago with Terani Couture, it was so much fun! The best part is that my sister Kim came with. Its to bad that by the end of the of the day we were so tired from being in heals and on our feet all day, that we really did not want to do much at night. This company is great to work for they take care of everything and take us out to nice dinners! Matt was so jealous. He really wanted to come. but he decided he would rather come when we go to Vegas. I missed him alot but had lots of fun with the girls.Kim looked so hot in this dress and this is the dress I had to put on about 100 times.

Matching party dresses.

Benny and Robert, our sugar daddy's for the weekend and the guys who run the showroom.
What were they thinking when they made these?
KIM~~ I had so much fun with you! It has been a while since we have been around each other without husbands or kids. It was so much fun laughing, goof off and working together. At least I will know where to look next time you loose a nipple sticky. :) I love you so much and am so glad we are sisters! You are the strongest and most compassionate person I know. And man, what a hot bod for a mother of two! I love you.
