While driving to Bristol, VA to hang out with these two I had no idea what I was in for. Walking into their home was the first time the three of us had met. These two are something else. They had me absolutely cracking up the whole time. Shawn was perfect at making Lindsey laugh. That girl was giggling the whole time. I loved the time I got to spend with them and look forward to their wedding in October!
P.S. It's Shawn's birthday!!!
P.S.S. Tomorrow is the two year anniversary of their engagement.
P.S.S.S. Their pets were insanely cute. You're really gonna fall in love with them.
How did you meet?
Lindsey: "I went to a bar called "Champs" one night after working with friends. I met, Shawn, the bartender. My friend introduced me and at the end of the night left my number on a napkin - classy - behind my back. He texted me later that night."
What was it like early in your relationship?
Lindsey: "We never saw each other. He was always traveling for work and I had just started at Outback as a manager working 12 -13 hour shifts. When we did see each other, it was very easy going, lot's of laughter because we could be ourselves around each other."
How long have you been together?
Lindsey: "We started dating March 31st 2014. We then got engaged July 21, 2015. So 3 years."
Name one thing you love about each other.
Shawn: "I like the fact that she isn't girly but in all seriousness I love her smile."
Lindsey: "I love that he can always make me smile. Even in tough situations where I can get really upset really quick he can always calm me down before I suck the soul out of someone"
What's next for the two of you?
Lindsey: "We are getting married October 21, 2017 and I will eventually get to move down completely to Bristol, VA! Yay!"
Any funny stories?
Lindsey: "While Shawn was on a work trip I was going through my training to be a manager. I was working very long hours and doing a lot of hard work in the kitchen. After a long day I would have to come home and take courses before I could become an official manager. Shawn and I took our dog Callie to the vet and I saw kitties in the corner. I LOVE kitties! I fell in love with one and Shawn told me no. The next week I had 4 days off in a row, a miracle really. I went and got said kitty from the vet and took it home without permission. Shawn came home and I was in the shower and begged him not to go in our bedroom and he asked why suspiciously. He could sense there was a little kitty. My excuse was he bit me when I put my finger in the cage so I had to have him. That kitty is Jack and he's my baby!"
