He Said, She Said: The Coastie Couple

Happy 2017! It's bound to be an interesting year for us as we welcome our first little one into the world in a little over a month (assuming he sticks to his due date). In order to prepare for our little one's arrival, we thought we'd turn our He Said, She Said post into a guest series for the beginning of the year. We have teamed up with some awesome bloggers and influencers for this series. We think you're really going to enjoy getting to meet new people through this fun series!

P.S. You're going to want to read to the end of this post for a fun opportunity!



We thought it best to kick of the series with our own answers to the questions we created. So, today, we're featuring ourselves!

What is the story behind how you two met?

He said: I was just out for a couple of drinks and found a neat bar with a cool back patio area. Originally I was trying to push a conversation forward with one of her friends but resigned to just hang out at the table when all the others got up to socialize. Pam sat down and we both just started talking and happened to hit it off.

She said: We were at a local bar in Charleston and seating was limited since it was a busy Saturday night. My friend and I had snagged a table, but it was kind of big for two. He came along and asked if he could share with us. He started out talking to my friend but by the night's end, we were engaged in friendly conversation and the night ended with us exchanging numbers. I truly never thought it would go beyond that one conversation.


How long have you been together?

He said: 4.5 years

She said: Four and a half years. Two and a half married.


When did you know that your spouse was “the one”?

He said: While I was in Portland after Christmas at home - Our long distance relationship came back together for about a week. We meshed like I had never left.

She said: I think it was around the time we decided to attempt long distance. Even though I had my doubts that it would work, I chose to try. I don't think I would have tried if there had been any "red flags" in our relationship.


What is your favorite TV show and/or movie to watch together?

He said: Supernatural

She said: Once Upon a Time


What is your spouse’s favorite food?

He said: Macaroni and Cheese

She said: Sandwiches and wraps


What is your favorite food?

He said: Burritos

She said: Pizza


What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?

He said: We love to go hiking on trails together.

She said: We enjoy so many different things. Basically, as long as we're doing it together, we can make just about anything fun. Travel, hiking, and exploring definitely rank somewhere towards the top of the list.


If the house caught on fire right now, what would be the first thing you grabbed?

He said: A fire extinguisher.

She said: I would grab the dogs and hopefully their leashes to make it easier to get them to safety. (Obviously the baby will make this list when he's born. For now, he goes everywhere with me.)


If money were no object, where would you take your spouse for a week?

He said: In early 2015, I would have said Europe. Now I would say Hawaii.

She said: This one is really hard because we both like to travel so much. I think I would have to say New Zealand. I think it would be a nice change of pace from America. The scenery I've seen from New Zealand is gorgeous and their accents are enjoyable as well.


Describe the perfect date night with your spouse.

He said: It would start at a nice vineyard or craft brewery with live music, good food, and a bonfire. It would be followed up with a walk through a scenic establishment like a botanical garden that has been put together in a manner to make it feel like you were walking through a fantasy glade.

She said: I would have to say a quiet night at a local restaurant or craft brewery followed by a walk under the stars.


Describe your spouse in just three words.

He said: outgoing, independent, calculated

She said: Caring, imaginative, and hard-working.
