about twentysixfiftyeight

So what is TwentysixFiftyeight? That’s me, Merritt (Twentysix) and my partner in crime, Chris (Fiftyeight). I know that Twentysix and Fiftyeight are supposed to have hyphens, but I like them all jumbled. Kind of like us…all jumbled and all crazy. Twenty-six was my jersey number when I played field hockey in high school, fifty-eight was Chris’ jersey number when he played football in high school. They’re also our favorite numbers and just about the only numbers we can both remember. Some day we’re going to win the lottery with those numbers.

We’ve been together for 7 years (married for almost 4), and we’re still completely in love. Like, holding hands, PDA, finishing each other’s sentences, sickeningly sweet, in love (I know, I hate those people too, but I’m totally one of them). We don’t normally fight, we get along really well, we’re each other’s best friend and we genuinely like each other (most days). But, like any married couple, when the gloves come off…we’re also some of the most hot-tempered, foul-mouthed, nasty people on the planet. Thankfully, those days are few and far between.

That’s us. We’re both kind of crazy (me more than him), kind of cocky (him more than me), and both completely awesome. And not at all modest. About a year ago, we bought our first house and I have to be honest, it’s been really trying my patience. But, even with all the problems, all the “Money Pit” references, we’re in love with it.

We’re also the parents of two really great kids, Katherine and David. They’re 11-year old twins, who wanted to make sure that they wouldn’t be a regular feature on the blog, and I wouldn’t be telling any embarrassing stories about them. They’ve said I can only tell certain things and that I have to ask first. Which totally leaves out the good stuff. But reluctantly, and I say reluctantly because for real y’all, they give some GOOD stories, I’m going to have to comply. Remember what it was like when you were 11 going on 16 and you were sure that your parents’ only objective in life was to embarrass you? Yep, that’s where they’re at.

Obligatory embarrassing picture. C’mon. You knew I was going to do it.

So that’s us. TwentysixFiftyeight. A mix of Merritt and Chris, with some cute kiddos, all jumbled together into one big, hot mess.
