8th Reason I LOVE Being Married2aGeek

Ugh! I think it is great that I motivated you. I think it is great that you have written down your goal. I think it is great that you managed to make your website more appeasing to the eye and way cooler than mine in one evening…. NOT!

Ok ok the 8th Reason I absolutely LOVE being married2ageek is something that I am kind of fussing about right now – He creates better looking/functioning websites than me.

I love and hate this. Last night he logged into his website for a bit. He updated a few things, wrote a quick piece and BAM! There he goes one upping me. I will redeem myself (I am just jealous)!

7th Reason I LOVE Being Married2aGeek

So today is National Best Friend Day and obviously this is one of the many reasons I absolutely love being married2ageek. He is my geek, my best friend, and my husband. This post might not be about his geeky personality, hobbies, or interests but I think it is one of the my favorite things about my geek. Thanks for being my best friend!

6th Reason I LOVE Being Married2aGeek

Gaming with Daddy! 🎮

Gaming with Daddy! 🎮

Sunday I spent 2+ hours playing monopoly on the xbox one with my husband. I lost. I really really hate to say that because I am actually rather competitive thanks to growing up with 4 siblings. To make matters worse I am ranked #3 (last) in our house right due to previous games between my sister and I and between my sister and my husband. It stinks! Hopefully I can redeem myself next weekend if not sooner.

Although I hate losing and I am kind of bummed – the 6th Reason I absolutely LOVE being married2ageek is because he figures out how to combine the activities I like to do with what he enjoys. He doesn’t care to sit at the table and play cards, monopoly, or trouble. But he knows I like to so we compromise and play them on the xbox. That way he gets all the fancy animations and knows I can not cheat (not that I ever would!) and I get to play the games I enjoy. It might take me a while to figure out how the controller works every time and I would rather play the actual board game but it is all about the compromise. Hey, he did introduce me to Peggle a while ago! That is a fun game!

In the end we still spend time with each other and have a good time. I might be biased but he is pretty awesome. #GeekLove right there. ❤

5th Reason I LOVE Being Married2aGeek

“Build is an annual conference event held by Microsoft, aimed towards software and web developers using Windows, Windows Phone, Microsoft Azure and other Microsoft technologies.”

This leads me to the 5th Reason I Absolutely LOVE Being Married2aGeek – I got to go to San Francisco for the first time, visit Eric’s sister, walk across the golden gate bridge, and attend a bit of the conference to see what all the fuss was about. Although this was a couple of years ago, I loved the experience and the adventure.

4th Reason I LOVE Being Married2aGeek

It is true. I am kind of funny. I am sure you are too. But the fact that I had the opportunity to be this witty is simply because I am married to a geeky software engineer. This conversation really did happen (I can not make this stuff up!):

Me: What ya doing?

Him: Fixing Bugs

Me: Fun. I squished one today. It was nasty.. Want to fix it?

Him: Lol

Me: Seriously, I killed one…

Reason #4 I absolutely LOVE being married2ageek – I LAUGH (at him/with him/because of him)!

3rd Reason I Love Being Married2aGeek

Reason #3 I absolutely LOVE being married2ageek – He shows me he loves me in unique ways. Here is another throwback from my Twitter account. This tweet is from about 2 years ago and it still makes me smile! (It may not be flowers, but I sure remember these little moments the most)
In the den on the computer and this pops out of the printer while he is in the other room.

2nd Reason I Love Being Married2aGeek

Eric working on EZ Breastfeeding app design

Being with a software engineer comes with a lot of “perks.” When Chandler was born in October, Eric watched me carry around a pen and paper so I could write down when I breastfed Chandler and what side I fed him on. I remember countless times he would go and find me the paper that was shoved between cushions on the couch or left in the diaper bag. Eventually I started using a little notepad app on my windows phone. Recently an app was developed just for me! Seriously, I can not make this stuff up.

Reason #2 I absolutely LOVE being Married2ageek – The app  “EZ Nursing”  was made just for me to more easily care for our baby. I must say this is pretty awesome. Eric also has developed a budgeting app “EZ Budget” that we use all the time. My Geek takes pride in his work and that is definitely a big reason to love him ❤

Chandler – 7 Months Old



Seven months ago you were born. You came into this world loved by your parents and your Daddy and I continue to love you more and more each day.

Chandler you are a joy in my life. I love reading to you. I love laughing with you. I love watching you anticipate my actions. I love your crawl and determination to pull yourself up on everything. I love seeing you interact with your Daddy – you love him so much. Chandler, I love watching you discover all that this world has to offer you! You and your Daddy are my world. I can’t imagine my life without you!

Happy Seven Months, Beastie! (I watched Maleficent this week….) Mommy loves you!

1st Reason I Love Being Married2aGeek

Is there a better way to kick start June’s theme than looking at old Tweets? I think not!

Reason #1 I absolutely LOVE being Married2aGeek – At Least Half of My Twitter Feed is Devoted to the odd things that I have encountered because I chose to marry a Geek. It is quite entertaining (to me anyway) and helps lighten the mood.

Disclaimer: the 30 reasons you will see this month are not in any specified order 🙂

Over Two Years Ago I tweeted: 

30 Reasons….

Well I already have a personal journal I write in about life, I probably overgram  on Instagram (cmattison), I have a Facebook and a Twitter (@1Girl1Geek) account, and I have things I obsess over on Pinterest.

So what in the heck am I doing with a website? I think I have finally decided. Every month I will explore a topic and  share things I love about said topic. It only seems fitting that the first topic for June will be “30 Things I love about being Married to a Geek.”

Oh… this will be entertaining. Hurry up June 1st!!!
