MARRIED LIFE

Hey what's going on everyone? It's time to get back on track and start pumping out some blog posts again. As many of you know, the last two months have been two of the busiest months of my life. Last month I got married in Boston to my girlfriend of six years. It was a great night with our family and friends, and it was awesome to see so many former teammates from all over the country that I hadn't seen in quite some time.




After the wedding, we spent almost ten days in Italy for our honeymoon. It was our first time in Italy and since both of our families are from there we have always wanted to visit. We spent just about a week on the Amalfi Coast, which is a beautiful stretch of coastline in Southern Italy. I had actually never even heard of the Amalfi Coast before, but thanks to Laura and her love / obsession of Pinterest, she knows what every island, peninsula, mountain, and valley in the world looks like. Once I saw the pictures I knew I would love it, and I did. It really was the prettiest place I've ever been to. Here is a shot of Positano, one of the small towns we stayed in.




Everything about Italy was great. The people were super nice, even though I couldn't understand a damn word any of them said. The food was amazing! I ate pizza and pasta at just about every single meal. And I ate enough gelato to kill a small horse. I'm serious. This is what it looked like after every single meal. 



When I told the guy I wanted the biggest cone in Italy he looked at me like I was an idiot, but after searching the place for a few minutes he found me this monster. It turned out being the best six scoops of dessert I've ever had.

Anyways, enough about the food. We were also able to spend some time in Pompeii where we got to see Mount Vesuvius. We took a boat to the island of Capri, another very cool spot in Southern Italy. And we spent a few days in Rome where we were able to check out great historical sites like the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica, and much more. I also had to make sure I checked out a Roman McDonald's, just to make sure they didn't have any awesome kind of burger or chicken nuggets that I had no idea about.




Overall the trip was great, but it was good to get home and finally speak some English and eat some American food again. Since being home, it's been back to baseball and getting ready for next season. I recently signed with a new team but I don't want to say who it was just yet because I haven't actually physically signed anything. Hopefully I receive the contract soon and this isn't just a big joke on me. 

My fantasy football playoffs started last night and I have to give a shout out to my followers on Twitter. I wasn't sure who to start as my RB2 between Steven Ridley, Bryce Brown, and BenJarvus Green-Ellis. After taking a quick poll I went with BJGE and was rewarded with 17 points. I appreciate the help!

I also cut down a Christmas tree for the first time in my life, which is surprising because I may be the worst handyman of all-time. I have no clue how to use a saw, drill, wrench, and even struggle with a tape measure at times. Last year I actually bought a drill to do some work around the house. After attempting to hang up a bookcase and putting six more holes in the wall than was probably necessary, Laura banned me from using any type of power tool in the house or near small children.




I know what you're thinking. That's the smallest tree you've ever seen and your eight year old sister could have cut it down faster than I did. Well it was my first time so back off!!!

Well, I hope everyone is having a great end to their fall and has a great holiday season. I promise now that a lot of the craziness is done I will be back to writing again, and I will let everyone know where I will be playing next season once I sign my contract. Take care!

  4. Congrats, Sounds like you had a great time Matt. It was great to see you and Laura in Aruba. Good luck with all that's going on.

  5. I was laughing, but I also realize I wouldn't be much better...well, except for maybe the tree...actually, no. I'd end up swearing for 5 straight minutes, then finish the profanity-filled tirade with "I'M GETTING AN ARTIFICIAL TREE" :)

    That humorous image aside, I hope you and Laura enjoy your Christmas. If you have any more pics of the honeymoon, share away. I've always wanted to visit Europe, and Italy is near the top of my list.
