|Some of Kevin & Autumn's Favorites
|What is your favorite family holiday & why?||Halloween. We decorate the house, put on scary music and get dressed up to hand out candy. The entire subdivision comes out & my brother and his family come down to visit because our neighborhood celebrates Halloween and decorates outside just as much as they do for Christmas.||Christmas! We always have a family get together and have way too much food. Even though I'm cooking most of the time, it's so much fun to see the kids in our family get excited to open presents, say prayers at dinner and talk about Santa coming. I still act like Santa is coming for my teenagers and secretly love it every year!|
|What was our most fun vacation and why?||Crested Butte Colorado. I was able to ski, see snow, stay in an actual cabin in the mountains & ride a snow mobile.||Dominican Republic for one of our anniversaries. The people were so nice and it was an island that I'd never been to before. We rode a dune buggy and even though he splattered mud on me on purpose, it was so much fun to hand candy out to the local children as we drove by the towns. Also, got to hold a monkey!|
|What are some of your favorite things to do on the weekend?||Hanging out in the pool, cooking on the BBQ and playing golf.||Working in the yard with my plants and flowers, cooking, entertaining, reading & shopping!|
|What is your favorite food?||Sushi!||Seafood or Italian (does peanut butter count??)|
|What is a future personal goal over the next 5 years?||Learn to play the guitar||Become fluent in Spanish|
|What is one of your most proudest moments in life (besides marrying each other :))||When my little brother got married and I was his best man.||My first actual gig as a band and getting my current job.|
|What is one of the funniest things about your husband/wife?||Her soft hearted nature...she cries when it makes no sense.... for example, if someone she likes gets picked on one of her favorite TV shows, The Voice...||How sweet and sensitive he's become over the years. Every morning he brings me orange juice and my vitamins and has to put eyes and pet all the cats before he leaves for work!|
|More About Our Family
|Things we like to do together|
Cook together and take cooking classes, take small weekend trips for a getaway to visit small country towns in Texas, go to festivals and outdoor outings, visit family, work out at the gym, and travel.
We are both Christian and attend a Methodist church a few miles away.
Our children were brought up in faith and still attend church when they can.
We have strong bonds to God and will teach our child the same.
|Our Musical Interest|
We love all kinds of music, truly! It depends on the mood, the time of year and time of day! Autumn loves Jazz, Pop, Blues, Country, Classical, Alternative Rock, Show Tunes (yes, I know...) and Kevin likes Country, old school Country, Rock, Blues and Alternative & Grunge Rock.
|About Our Home|
Our home is modest, but nice & warm, light with an open concept. We spend a lot of time outside in the summer reading and lounging in the pool or under the patio.
Autumn love's decorating for the holidays. We have Valentine's decorations, Easter Decorations, St. Patty's day decorations, Halloween Decorations, Autumn/Thanksgiving Decorations and Christmas Decorations, of course.
|Hobbies and Interests|
Kevin loves doing anything outdoors. He loves to BBQ and has a gas grill and two smokers and is currently working on making homemade sausage with Autumn's dad. He has a garden in the backyard that he looks forward to planting with veggies every year and always tries to find unusual peppers and jalapenos (so he can stuff them and cook them on the grill, of course!). He has an old white Chevy truck that he has had since high school and is working to get it fixed up. He's very close to his little brother and talks to him almost daily. He can't wait for the next time they get to see each other and we always have a "plan" of when we are going to see them the next time.
Autumn definitely has a green thumb! She loves plants, flowers, gardening and fixing up the front beds, pots, and backyard by the pool to make sure the backyard looks like a little oasis. There are always fresh flowers in the house so they can enjoy and in the summer Kevin brings her daisies (her favorite) at least once a month because he knows she loves them. She loves to travel and is always working on planning their next adventure. Autumn volunteers at a "no kill" animal shelter on the weekends and volunteers at events that they host around the City to raise money for the shelter. She donates to the SPCA twice a year and loves to cat sit or dog sit for her parents or friends when needed.
Autumn loves to host and entertain family and friends. She has a "brunch crew" that she started with family and friends and every month a couple hosts a themed Sunday brunch at their homes. She has themed decorations and serving dishes for every occasion.
