We met at a tailgate for the LSU vs. Florida game in 2009. Ryan felt compelled to talk to Amanda when he first saw her. He knew she would be a special part of his future.
Our first date was at Ryan’s apartment in February 2010. He wanted to show off his cooking skills so he made us dinner from scratch! Then he talked Amanda into watching the movie “Fight Club” for the first time.
When Ryan asked Amanda’s dad for permission in May 2013 he promised that he would pop the question before Christmas. Ryan is a procrastinator so of course he waited until the very last minute! On Christmas Eve he told Amanda that they were going to his grandparent’s house on the lake to visit with his family. They walked out to the end of the dock where Ryan had a table set up with roses and wine. He had the ring hidden inside Amanda’s Christmas present.
We love to watch our favorite shows together. We are hooked to Ray Donovan, Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.
We have a cat named Sophie. Amanda brought her home from the humane society by surprise so Ryan was not happy at first, but he loves her now!
