ten things

this is my best friend. my husband. the love of my life.

ten things about him off the top of my head:

1. i thought he was thee most annoying the first time i met him. we went putt-putt golfing and he was obnoxious and loud. and i wanted nothing to do with him for the first 6 months or so. his parents even once came to my job and said, "oh, you're larissa! you're the one that hates our son!" (kidding.....i think.)

2. evan really wanted a sports-worthy name for our baby. he kept suggesting names from the bears starting line-up or from this team or that and i would shoot them down. he totally snuck maddox by me because apparently it's the name of some 90's (?) braves baseball player. people say to us (a lot), "are you braves fans? we LOVE greg maddox!" cool, evan. cool. (i still love the name. next time, there will be research.) (and, in fact, we are braves fans.)

3. he sings. oh, my, does he ever. he sings me to sleep almost every night and his singing calms maddox instantly. i hope that maddox can sing, too. he also wants me to teach him how to play the piano and when he learns i'm probably going to die, it's going to be so HOT.

4. my dad used to think his name was "eric."

5. he asked me to marry him by tying my ring to a ring pop. i hate suckers. i would have never opened it if he had not said, "open it! it's a new flavor!" (it was cotton candy.) also: when i saw the ribbon on the end of the ring pop i thought that i had won something.

6. evan surprise cooks for me all the time. i love when he comes to wake me up and says, "get out of bed. we're eating breakfast together." and then there's a homemade tomato, spinach and mushroom omelet or homemade blueberry muffins or fresh fruit all ready for my hungry little self.

7.  we have gone to the same church since we were little kids. he's a grade behind me but we were friends with the same people, my best friend dated his best friend, we went to all the same church camps, his best friend was a hockey player and i was an ice skater and we grew up 3 blocks from each other. and we still didn't meet until my senior year of high school. destiny.

8. the amount of time that evan hasn't had facial hair throughout our relationship is like 3 minutes. he used to have just a goatee that he once shaved off and i didn't even notice. then he started growing a beard and i hated it so hard at first, but now i love it.

9. he eats the weirdest ish. like saltine crackers with cheddar cheese and miracle whip. what even?! (plus miracle whip? EW.) or chipped beef on toast. or soft boiled eggs with saltine crackers. and i'm all, "squeeze some lemon on my apple and pass me the lime salt for my watermelon."

10. one time, evan made out with a giraffe in kenya.
