He Said, She Said: Liz Wilcox

We really hope that you've been enjoying this series as much as we have! It's been the perfect way for us to introduce you to some awesome new people while still spending time with our new baby boy. Have you checked Instagram lately to see how we're doing? In the meantime, I think you'll enjoy these answers from Liz Wilcox and her husband! They genuinely sound perfect for each other!

Oh and Happy Valentine's Day to you!

What is the story behind how you two met?

He said: We met on a blind date. A friend of mine and a friend of Liz's were chatting on Plenty of Fish. When they decided to meet up, Liz's friend wanted to bring a friend along, so Dave brought me. We met at Mcguire’s in Destin, Florida, ate dinner, watched fireworks and spent almost every day together since.

She said: It was Memorial Day weekend. My friend was going on a date with a guy she met online. This guy was in town for a road race and brought his friend along for the weekend. My friend asked me to come along to occupy the 3rd wheel. I said yes, but was not looking forward to it. Her dates were not usually guys I would speak to, but I figured at least it was a night on the town.
We got to the restaurant and I was immediately in love. These two guys looked like fun goofballs! I could tell my date was extremely nervous so I just chatted his ear off the whole night. We watched fireworks that night and he put his hand on my shoulder… then immediately took it off, then rested the hand again. How cute that he was so nervous!
He was the first genuine guy I’d met in a long time and I decided on the drive home that he must be mine.

How long have you been together?

He said: May 26 2013 after our blind date. We have been inseparable since.

She said: We have been together since 2013 but have had to endure many long distance stints. We met in May 2013 and spent 2 months dating before Ed moved to NY while I stayed in Florida. I moved in with his parents after 6 months of being apart, and then 4 weeks later told him we should just get married, that I was tired of being apart. We tied the knot 9 months after meeting and enjoyed another 10 months living in that honeymoon phase. At the end of January 2015, Ed began some rigorous military training on and off for about 5 months, where I’d see him for 1-3 weeks at a time. Then he was sent to Afghanistan for 12 months. We were finally reunited about 6 months ago and never want to be apart again!

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

He said: Instantly. A few days prior I had a dream about my future spouse, and I knew as soon as i met Liz, she was it.

She said: Pretty much the day I met him. I told my mother I was smitten the next day. She said, “Oh dang. He’s the one.” (See question number one)

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

He said: Anything really that we can both get into together. We enjoyed Breaking Bad and also Dexter, Fargo, and a few other shows together.

She said: We have very different tastes but we both seem to like the show Fargo.

What is your spouse’s favorite food? What is your favorite food?

He said: mine is probably mexican, liz could eat pizza hut every day of her life

She said: Ed’s favorite food? Umm, I don’t know. He likes lots of different foods. Peanut butter and jelly? My favorite food is steak, but I think Ed might say Mountain Dew.

What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?

He said: Workout. We have gotten into a really good workout routine lately and out of all the things we do together, I would say that is it.

She said: Drive around and I talk and he listens.

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

He said: Chelsea

She said: The dog. I’d say my child but I know Ed would grab our daughter and forget the dog.

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

He said: Disney in either France or Japan.

She said: I don’t know what it is called but there is some kind of car race in the desert you can participate in. He talks about it from time to time. I know he’d love it. I think it’s in Moab, Utah.

Describe the perfect date night with your spouse.

He said: After we leave the child with a babysitter, just a quiet dinner, most likely steaks, and chatting. We are pretty boring.

She said: Eat steak and potatoes. Go for a long walk alone without our daughter. Lay in bed and talk and laugh.

Describe your spouse in just three words.

He said: Motivated as hell.

She said: Willing. Able. Forgiving.
