About the Bride!

I'm not the best at blogging because frankly I just never got into it. However for the sake of my better half I present you with 25 things KT.

1. KT gets cold very easily but I call her my little furnace because when I lean up against her back she is as hot as a freakin furnace, ouch!

2. I let her go to sleep first because 1) She has trouble falling asleep if I fall asleep first and start snoring, 2) The real reason is she puts her icicle feet on my legs if I'm going to bed first!

3. She lovvvvvvvvvvess babies, I can't count how many times I've heard, "Ohhh tiny baby!" or "I wanna steal that baby!" But to be honest she is really good with kids :)

4. She likes to go around traffic circles at least 3 times!

5. I would drive up to see her at school in Ithaca after getting off of work at midnight. She isn't very talkative when you drop in for a visit at 4:30 or 5 am even if you are on a triple shot of espresso when you arrive.

6. Ever paged a pager in the bottom of a river? I have, thanks butterfingers!

7. She is a very family oriented person and is fiercely loyal to those she cares about. It's a great characteristic because I am also very family oriented.

8. If the power went out and there was a hurricane or tornado outside...it would be quieter than her fan/sound machine she sleeps with.

9. When she asks you to buy a lottery ticket.........she means a winning one, don't you dare bring home a loser!

10. She has 9000 names for our dog. Butterballs, pupper nuggets, pupper loves, lover pups, lover nupkins, pupper doh duppers, rufer dufers, and the list goes on.

11. If she could own a wombat, she would run a farm of them so there were always baby wombats around. She loves them, her favorite animal by far! She found a book called "Diary of a Wombat"  in Australia and bought multiple copies of it to give away (and one to keep for our future kids).

12. Every time Jon and Kate plus 8 comes on this huge smile spreads across her face because she thinks the kids are so cute. If I see it is on I switch to it and watch her become aware of it being on.

13. She likes to call my cousin Bryan "Kid" and he doesn't dislike it, but he gets this look on his face of disbelief every time she says it. He is only 4 months younger than she is hehe.

14. I call her all kinds of nicknames and she just makes funny faces at me for them, every now and then she'll fight back with an equally horrible name. Sometimes it gets a giggle out of her, which is good because I only make them up to see her smile.

15. She has started to make me several gifts and has not finished them (besides my socks which are very nice!), she makes tons of gifts for other people and finishes them. It's kinda cute and I like to think that it's because she knows she has the rest of our lives to finish them :)

16. She never actually said yes when I proposed, she said oh my god a lot and an hour or two later finally actually said yes.

17. Kait gets so white and can faint when getting blood taken, or there is talk of blood. However all the craziness of the birthing process doesn't even phase her. Pregnancy and birth fascinate her. She has a little library of books about them because she's so interested in them.... but any other talk about the body grosses her out. Boggles my mind!

18. Her favorite books are memoirs, she loves dark chocolate, lilacs, hockey, Disney kids movies (especially when she is sick), pajamas & sweatpants (she has drawers just full of those two things).

19. She is an orange fanatic, the first things she put on our registry was an orange Kitchenaid mixer (she's wanted one for a long time) and an orange spatula. She wants an orange futon, and who knows how orange our house will be one day.

20. I have to lick all her envelopes as they disgust her. If I'm not around she licks her fingers or dips them in water to do it.

21. She is kind of a disaster in the kitchen. If she tried more I'm sure she would improve, but that's a different subject! Every time she is cooking something an ingredient ends up missing or she sets something on the stove on a burner that is still hot without noticing the light is on and ends up with a burned mess of something. I try to help but usually end up getting dirty looks for it lol.

22. September is her least favorite month and always seems to be a bad luck time, but thankfully it is followed by her favorite month, October. We started dating, we're getting married, pumpkins, thanksgiving, orangey goodness, colorful leaves, all happen in October.

23. Every time I go into Taco Bell (her fav fast food) to pick her up some food I get funny looks because when she eats a burrito from Taco Bell, she uses 12 to 15 packets of hot sauce so I have to pick up a huge handful of them. Puts my ketchup usage at Chik-fil-a to the test!

24. She's so special to me that I flew to the other side of the world (having never flown further than California before) to spend a week with her after not seeing her for several months. We then drove around the south island of New Zealand by ourselves and managed to not get lost once! It was not on my list of places to visit but I am so glad that I did. It was an amazing place that we would both return there at anytime, or live there if we could (although I believe she still likes Australia more). By far the best trip I have ever had and I got to spend a solid week with my sweetheart exploring dozens of places neither of us had ever seen.

25. Kait has been a wonderful part of my life for the last 4 and 1/2 years (even if she forgets a year or so :b) and I'm very thankful that we found each other again and became more than friends. She is my little rock along with our little pebble Rufus that I can count on for hard times or just any old bad day. I take comfort in knowing that she will always be a part of my life and I a part of hers. She is my silver lining and my dream come true all packed into one person. I am so happy to be joining our families together this fall.
