On April 24, 2010 Jimmy Buffett started his new tour "Under the Big Top". Mike and I have tried going to three concerts since we have been married and this is the first we finally made it to. Although it is Mike's 33rd time to see Buffett, it was my first! We went down with Matt and Ashley, Ryan and Mel, Sara and Rusty. The eight of us drove to Tampa around 10 am on Saturday morning. We hung out at the pool of our hotel all day enjoying ourselves playing corn hole, catch phrase, and loaded questions. We soaked up quite a bit of sun and had an excellent day! Then we all showered up and got on the hotel shuttle to the concert. Once arriving at the concert, we walked around and admired all the CRAZY tailgaters. We decided we were so glad we hung out at the pool instead after seeing the horrible port-a-potties and people stumbling around sick. We had lawn seats so we were quite a ways from the stage, but the music was fantastic. His encore song, Tin Cup Chalice, is one of mine and Mike's favorite songs so we were so happy he played it. Mike and I danced the night away from slow songs to fast jumping up and down songs. He also covered a Kenny Chesney song, Back Where I Come From. I have been to several concerts, but this had to be one of the best ever! I now know what all of Mikes friends talk about saying Buffett is one of the best entertainers!! If you get a chance to go, even if you are not a huge fan, GO!!!

APRIL 18, 2010........Where has the time gone? I can't believe we have already hit our one year anniversary! For this anniversary we decided to go out to a nice dinner together. We chose to go to Texas de Brazil for Brazilian cuisine. It is the restaurant where they come around with several different meat options and it is an all you can eat type of deal. Even though it is very expensive, we had an excellent meal and enjoyed it thoroughly! We got a free bananas foster for dessert but the cheesecake looked too good to pass up, so we shared two desserts! After going to dinner we walked around the outlet malls and just window shopped. It was a beautiful evening! We then came home to watch our fifth season of Weeds. That show is amazing (corrupt but amazing)! This was all the night before our anniversary. On the actual day, Mike played NCAA wii games for about 5 hours while I worked on lesson plans- a typical romantic Kintz day. haha. It was a fabulous weekend and I am so blessed to be married to my best friend! As exciting as an anniversary is, it makes you feel a bit of sadness because you miss the wedding. I would give anything to go back to that wonderful night and live it all again! :)
So, I am completely new to this and not quite sure how to work this yet. I figured I would start our first post about us! Mike and I met in Winter Springs, FL on July 4, 2008. Soon after, I moved back to Arkansas to finish up school. He flew into town and surprised me and we got engaged on October 18, 2008. Very quick- I know! When you know, you know! We then got married at Daytona Beach Shores on April 18, 2009. We went to Ochos Rios, Jamaica on our honeymoon and had the best time! Upon returning from our honeymoon, we have lived in four different places. We rented a house, an apartment, stayed with my parents, and finally in January bought our first home together. We are very happy with our purchase!!! Now Mike is teaching ESE (special education) Lake Mary High School and is the defensive coordinator for the football team. I am teaching 7th grade math at South Seminole Middle School. I also direct Hurricane Games (intramurels), am a cheerleading sponsor, and tutor a group of students every week. Needless to say, we stay VERY busy.
