And now you know just a little bit more about us... If you want to know more, just ask away and I will dedicate a separate post to answer your questions ;) And please ask... or else I'll feel kinda silly


  1. such wonderful facts about you both. I like how you like to call him phil but he doesnt like it LOL


  2. I hate ramen noodles. And those little packs of MSG you sprinkle on top? Like, really? Cute post! We haven't had a date night either. In fact I think we've only ever been on 3 dates ever. What's your first name? Maria? (Guessing that cause every Spanish or Portuguese (like me) has Maria in their name somewhere).

  3. Ian liked Mia Isabella before we agreed on Emma!
