Mattie Memories...

...Matt and I stayed in tonight and had an awesome dinner. We started talking about when we first started dating and I thought I'd share some of those memories...

*After our first date, I got in my car and drove ahead of him for about 5 miles. I wouldn't use my phone because I thought he'd see me and I didn't want him to think I was gabbing about him. As soon as I saw him turn behind me, I immediately called one of my girlfriends!!!

*It started snowing during one of our dates where we exchanged one of our first kisses, after Matt dropped me off at my car, he got a ticket for driving crazy because he was in such a good mood! (He told that story-not me!)

*I still remember the first time Matt farted around me (I know gross!). We'd gone to see "Blades of Glory" and on the way back to my work where my car was, he said, "Excuse me! My butt stinks!"

*We'd only been dating about a month when a giant limb fell on my house, I worked late that day and met him for dinner. When I came home, the limb was gone! He'd cut the limb down for me and didn't even say a word all throughout dinner!!!

*Our first Valentine's Day together, which was only a couple of months after we started dating, I had to work that evening (I always volunteered to work V-Day bc I was single) so Matt surprised me by taking me to breakfast. I gave him a care package of brownies and friendship bread.

*February of that year, I went to SC to suprise a lady I used to work with at her retirement party and when they asked me if I was dating anyone, I wouldn't talk about it because I didn't want to jinx it. Same thing on my birthday, I refused to take pictures with Matt because I thought if we did, we'd break up.

*When it warmed up, we decided to go running one afternoon and I could tell Matt thought my pace was slow so I told him to go ahead and take off. About 10 minutes later, he was out of breath and walking. I just laughed as I passed him by!

Just wanted to share those fun memories!!! Hope this makes you all think about your dating days...I love you Mattie!
