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?

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.
