His & Hers: Two Year Anniversary Q&A With Matt

After two years of BEGGING me to make a guest appearance on Pink Champagne Problems, I figured it would be really nice of me to let Matt contribute to a post for our two year anniversary.

THE LOOK | hers: dress, shoes, bag c/o, sunglasses, scarf, hat // his: shirt, shorts, sunglasses, watch

Just kidding. I made him answer these questions from readers — he’s a great sport!

I wanted to do a little fun two year anniversary Q&A so you can learn a little more about us and get a better feel for Matt’s personality. Now that we’ve been together for two years, I think it’s safe to say that I know Matt pretty damn well. He’s honestly one of the funniest guys ever, so I knew he would come up with some great responses;) As for our two year anniversary weekend, we laid low on Friday and went for a quick dinner at Wahlburgers. On Saturday, we got steak for our fancy anniversary dinner and then headed to his friend’s apartment to watch the McGregor/Mayweather fight. We had such a great anniversary, and cheers to many more!

So let’s get to it – here are some of the questions I received from YOU! We had so much fun responding to them — enjoy!

What is your favorite things about each other?

DANA: Matt is one of the most caring people in this world, and I could tell how good of a person he is just after a few weeks of dating. It wasn’t only the way he treated me, but I could also see how much he cared for his family and friends. He’s always been supportive of me since day 1, especially with the blog, so it just shows how much he cares about me and what’s important to me.

MATT: Her smile, laugh and work ethic. (Editor’s Note: Short, sweet, and to the point…thanks babe.)

What annoys you the most about each other?

DANA: Hmm. Probably that he goes deaf if he’s playing video games or checking fantasy baseball. Read: He doesn’t listen to me.

MATT: When she tickles me. (Editor’s note: For the record, he also tickles me. So….)

What’s the best part about your relationship?

DANA: We enjoy similar things, so it’s really easy for us to have fun together!

MATT: How well we get along and care for one another.

Do you like the same teams?

DANA: Oooh, that’s a no. Matt never understands my love for Pittsburgh and hates that I’m not all about NY teams. BUT I will say, he’s been very good about going to Pittsburgh with me, going to Pens/Rangers games, and letting me watch playoff hockey all the way through June. Also, sorry, I can’t help it that I love the City of Champions. *insert shrugging emoji*

MATT: No, actually none. I’m a true New Yorker and root for all NY teams (Yankees, Giants, Knicks, Rangers), while she lives and dies by Pittsburgh.

What do you remember about the first day you met?

DANA: I sure do. Matt had a liiiiiiiittle too much to drink and was annoying with his friends (#boys), but nonetheless, I may or may not have kissed him. So I guess I saw something through my beer goggles;)

MATT: I was drunk with my friends and she was not really feeling me all that much.

Describe what each other does for a living in your own words.

DANA: Woof. Well. He’s in finance…and works with people who have more money than I can even fathom. When he works from home, he answers the phone like this: “High net worth lending, this is Matt.” He talks about loans and interest and wills. So basically, I have NO idea what Matt really does. He tries to explain to me, but I’m not really caught up on all my finance terms.

MATT: She does “Fashion”; whatever that means. All I know is she has basically no dress code and gets out early on Fridays in the Summer. Oh and she helps to coordinate many aspects of the Men’s fashion line at Perry Ellis.

Favorite NYC date night spots?

DANA: San Marzano for cheap pasta (and sangria!) and Calexico for rolled quesadillas and margaritas. For special date nights, we like Quality Meats in Midtown and Maialino in Gramercy.

MATT: Calexico, Maialino, San Marzano, any burger joint/steakhouse.

Use three words to describe each other.

DANA: Funny, smart, handsome.

MATT: Caring, adorable, hardworking.

…Wow we really do like each other;) Shocking. HAPPY TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY BABE!

      Thank you, Lauren! I definitely had to beg and bribe Matt, this is SO not his thing. I felt bad that he was uncomfortable shooting in front of lots of people but he was a good sport about it — just tell your man about our experience and maybe he’ll come around 😉
