All About Dustin!

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine's Day 😍  This isn't my favorite holiday to celebrate because my heart hurts for those who are single and long for a relationship.  I've been there and I remember how that feels.  Just know that God has placed you in this season of life for a reason and trust in Him to provide exactly what you need, so make the best of your singleness and don't waste this season of life.

Now onto today's post--all about DUSTIN!  To read about how we met (hint: blind date), click here.  I am so thankful that the Lord brought me Dustin because we are exactly what the other person needs.  Where I'm late, he's on time.  Where he's messy, I'm super organized. We balance each other out and have lots of fun together.

These are just some of the things I love about him...
 He encourages me to do anything I want because he genuinely believes I will succeed.  I can always count on him to be my biggest supporter.

 He believes I'm a great cook and brags about my cooking to other people.

 When he laughs hard, he has the funniest laugh.

 He left behind a job he loved and one that fit perfect for his college degree (wildlife science) in order to move back home for us to get married.  Even though I offered to move to Mississippi, he valued my job over his and didn't want me to leave the school system I work in.

 I love that he's really outdoorsy and very masculine.

 He provides for us--not only in finances but also food ha!  We have a deep freezer full of 2 deer plus some meat left from a deer killed at the beginning of the season.

 Speaking of finances, Dustin is very on top of ours to where I don't have to think about them at all.  He has an excel spreadsheet of each monthly expense and bill, and he takes care of getting bills paid.  I basically keep up with how much money I have to spend in between paychecks. 😜

 Our interior decorating style is VERY different, but Dustin trusted me enough to let me pick out everything in our house.  And now he really loves it--maybe not the cream furniture but it all looks good haha!

 I love that Dustin is passionate about sports.  Not only is very knowledgeable about all sports, but he also likes to play sports too.  Like when we bought a wiffle ball set this past summer just so we could practice pitching to each other in the backyard.

 I love that we enjoy going new places together and trying new restaurants to eat.

 Dustin thinks I'm the best teacher in the world--he's never seen me teach, but he still believes that I'm the best ha!

I love that we have LOTS of fun together!  We're always laughing in our house and when we go out places.

And I couldn't leave out a picture of #wheredustinsleeps--I love that Dustin can fall asleep anywhere and at any time, and the fact that he doesn't get mad when I take pictures of him sleeping and post on social media.

A few tidbits about Dustin:
-He was a senior in high school when I was a freshman in the same high school.
-Our birthdays both fall on the 25th of the month.
-He's left-handed
-He's 6'3" and I'm 5'7" so I will always be able to wear heels around him.
-He tries to use big words sometimes in conversation and then doesn't get mad when I call him out about it being used in the wrong context.
-He's an Auburn grad but an Alabama fan 
-He still wears t-shirts from high school
-Speaking of t-shirts, he's obsessed with buying t-shirts
-He asks me to pick out his clothes 😜


  1. I think the best is when you have fun doing everyday mundane things like running errands or whatever. If you can make the dull parts of life fun, that's the key :)

  2. What a precious tribute to your sweet Mr. You guys make my heart smile!! Mr. Nine and I are a lot like this. Happy Valentine's Day beautiful Sarah!!

  3. You guys are adorable. I love that you treasure all these special things about him. I really think our husbands would get along perfectly and we could watch girly movies after they fell asleep. Ha! I love that you listed your heights because all this time I thought you were a little petite girl since he's tall....I'm 5'7" too! Hope you have a sweet Valentines Day Sarah!

  4. Oh I loved this!! I'm laughing Bc he and Patrick are so similar. Patrick also has an excel spreadsheet dealing with our finances. He can tell me how much I paid on gas last year. Meanwhile I'm not even sure how much our power bill is each month haha. Happy Valentine's Day friend, you sure have a good one there!!

  5. This is the cutest. I love learning more about him and you guys relationship!!! You seem to compliment each other so well! I didn't realize he left behind a job to move back so you wouldn't have to the leave the district. That is so wonderful!

  6. I just love this post!! Y'all are so sweet together! All the pictures are adorable. My husband and I were both born on the 11th, different months. We're exactly 6 months apart in age so I always get to pick at him for 6 months about being older than me :) Hope y'all have a great Valentine's Day together!! :)

  9. I love this post, so sweet! My husband and I are very similar to y'all... especially in the home decor department :) I have a feeling my hubs is going to confront me about all of the cream/ivory furniture/decor sometime soon. Happy Valentines Day!
