Interview special

A couple of weeks ago Matt and I got interviewed by my old FHE brother. 
He had to create a youtube channel for one of his classes and it's about engaged couples.
He asked Matt and I a series of questions, without one another in the room, and then made a little interview out of it. 
I wish it was longer and had more of our answers.
Matt and I talked about the questions and answers after we got interviewed and found that we had answered a lot of questions the exact same. 
I loved that because it tells us just how much we have talked about things, how well we listen, and how much we know about the other.
It was a lot of fun to do and I love having this little piece of our love story.
Here it is, enjoy.
Engaged interview 

And here are just 2 pictures of Matt and I.
Get used to this just being about Matt and I and nothing really else of importance.

Valentine's day

This is probably one of the first Valentine's day I really enjoyed.
Last year was great for the fact that I went to a Lady Antebellum concert.
But the cold hard truth is there is nothing better then spending the day with the person you love and doing sweet things for them.
I think I'll do it more often. Who says we need a special day set aside to show love? 
For Valentine's day, Matt and I had talked about having pancakes in the morning but then he texted me that morning and said he just realized he had homework due in the next few hours so he wouldn't be able to.
About 15 mins later I got a text that said there was a surprise downstairs for me.
He had made heart shaped pancakes and had gotten everything I like on my pancakes all prepared for me. There was also an orchid on the table. 
It was so sweet to come down stairs to that.
Later that day I decorated a table with a heart table cloth, heart shaped plates, champagne classes with hearts on them and then did the usual scattering of candy hearts and the unusual scattering of crispy chocolate soccer balls since Matt plays soccer. 
Matt made me lasagna as that was our first date meal together and it was delicious. We just ended the night I think watching a movie or talking. Whatever it was it was great. 
I so look forward to many more valentine's days with Matt.

Matt and I have become like identical twins.
There was one day were we had 3 of the same ideas.
For some reason I can't remember 2 of them but I do remember that I bought socks and some of them were white and I thought. I think Matt and I should decorate these socks tonight cause I hate having tons of different brands of white socks and having to try and match them.
Well I told Matt my idea and he was like that's weird. Can I tell you what I wanted to do for out date tonight? I wanted to decorate socks.
Yup. We are a match made in heaven.

 Then we had serendipity frozen hot chocolate.

The next day I got up early to prepare home made chicken noodle soup.
I'm pretty sure I get some sweet pre-wifey points for this dinner.
I cut the carrots into heart shapes and I made the noodles from scratch. (I'm going to act like making noodles from scratch is really hard, but it's not)
Here is the finished product. Some of the carrots didn't quite resemble hearts but it's harder then one might think. It was delicious though.
I love Matt and the fun little dates we do. We just enjoy spending time together and every day with him is like a date. I hope this kind of relationship carries over into our marriage. Which is in 78 days!
