Bryan and Amanda - BareBones Ent

How did we meet?
We met online, and it was one of the rare occurrences where there was sparks flying, fireworks, and a magical ending. We met August 2013 and made our relationship official September 27, 2013.

How long have we been together?
We have been together for over 2 years.

Our favorite things about each other?
Amanda: My favorite thing about him is that he has the best heart in the whole world. I love how his heart fits perfectly with mine, and is my missing puzzle piece. I love how sweet and caring he is, and how he takes care of me. How he is always there for me. I know I have found my soul mate, best friend, and happily ever after. He makes my life better than a fairytale, or dream come true. I think that he is the best husband, most caring, loving, and involved father in the world. I love watching how wonderful he is and what he does for our 2 children and that he talks to my pregnant belly for our 3rd child. I love that he already shows Silas (new baby) attention and does cute things like play music for him and watch him kick and dance inside my belly. I love that he is the greatest man ever and I love how well he takes care of and provides for us and our 3 children.
Bryan: It’s got to be that booty! I kid.. She is the kindest, most caring, and strongest person that I know. She stepped right in without hesitation and cared so deeply for my kids, business, and myself. She gives me the extra motivation to keep pushing and to never give up. She is my rock. Plus she deals with my wild shenanigans and constant horrible accents! (I love them so!)

What is our craziest and/or most fun memory together?
The day we went to the doctor and had confirmed that we were going to have a baby; we were supposed to work a show that night. We went to the One Eyed Doll show in Fort Worth and hungout and interviewed the band in their bus. They were the first people outside of immediate family to know that we were having a baby. The band was stoked and our baby had his first rock concert pics taken!

What would be a dream date night?
A small road trip somewhere, not too far or too close, to a bed and breakfast. Just to spend a few days alone away from the world, drama, and stress.

If we could do anything for each other?
Bryan: If I could do anything for Amanda, I would take away all of her sickness and pains. She has had to deal with so much throughout her life. If I had the power I’d get rid of her diabetes, cure her nerve damage, and possibly most importantly bring back her eye sight fully. There’s nothing more that I want than to be able to do that.
Amanda Honestly if I could do anything I couldn’t pick just one thing. I would love to pay off his student loans, and get his degree finished. Pay off all of our debts. Help expanding BareBones. Help to better our future and our family’s by getting us a nice house and everything so the kids have a better future.

What is our song?
We have two! First is a song we had made by our friend Max Bemis of Say Anything and Perma called, “Here For”, and our song from the beginning of our relationship is “How Far This Can Go” by Bowling For Soup.

When we were dating we woke up one morning and said we wished we could ride some rollercoasters, so we literally packed up and decided to head to Indiana Beach for the day!

We met on a dating site and started talking and it all started with meatloaf lol.

How long have you been together?
We have been together about a month, after 2 long months of him chasing and asking me.

What is your favorite thing about each other?
Katrina: My fave thing is, actually I have 2 things about Daniel, which is that he is sooo caring and helpful, which I love about him.
Daniel: My favorite thing about my Amazing girlfriend is simple. She has a heart filled with sooo much love and caring than 100 other hearts put together. It makes her hands down one in a million. This isn’t my favorite thing about her though. All though these things I have mentioned are incredible my most favorite thing about my girlfriend is real simple. She gave a guy like me a chance.

What is your craziest and/or most fun memory together?
Our fun memory is the first time he came to my parents house and we both made meatloaf together for dinner that evening.

What would be a dream date night for you?
Katrina: A dream date for us would be going to the Studio Movie Grill because neither one of us have been before so it would be a fun and exciting date. Then maybe go ice skating.
Daniel: My dream night with my beautiful girlfriend would be blocking out everything around us. Not have a thought about anything but each other. No drama, no worries about tomorrow, no fears of yesterday. Just me and her. Doesnt matter where we are. THE only thing that matters is that we are alone and in love. My definition of a date is a guy and a girl being around each other. Not thinking about anything else but the other person. Thats my dream date. Having my girlfriend completely and utterly mine!

If you could do anything for each other, what would it be?
Katrina: It’s hard to pick just one thing I would do for my big baby lol. If I were able to I would do everything for him but the main thing I would do for him is get him his favorite guitar. He deserves the world because he is the most handsome, kind hearted, loving, outgoing, family orientated man I have ever met. From what I’ve learned he has never had a stable life so it’s my mission to help make a stable life for him and our kids.
Daniel: If I could do anything in the world for my partner it would be take over her mind and body as my own and beat her ex’s ass for continuing to try and ruin our meant-to-be relationship.
It’s romantic cause I’m like a knight in shining armor defeating the enemy

Amiee and Elton

Amiee and Elton

How did you meet?
First off to understand the true dynamics of our relationship, you’ll need to know a little more about our backgrounds and where each of us came from.

I had just gotten out of a horrible relationship with a guy who was unfaithful and extremely abusive, but at the time I wasn’t a strong enough person to stay away from him. Finally, I decided to move to Virginia with my two older brothers. After a little more than a year and a half I was going through a pretty rough time. My mom called to tell me that she and my step-dad had bought me
a plane ticket home to visit for Thanksgiving. After a week of being home and seeing my family I was seriously considering packing up and moving back to my home town. Upon my return to Virginia I was picked up by a good friend of mine named Patrick, who happened to work as security for the same bar that Elton was the manager of. Patrick then asked if I wanted to go with him to one of the local bars to celebrate the birthday of his good friend and since I had nothing better to do that evening I agreed.

Now before I continue here’s a little bit about my fiance’ Elton. His name is in
fact Elton John, not after the singer but after his father, and grandfather. He was the bar manager for one of the biggest corporate country music themed bar chains in the Country But had just suffered the unexpected death of his girlfriend at that time, Livy. She died from a self inflicted gun shot wound the the head on the balcony outside of their bedroom that they shared, caused from years of childhood abuse, emotional instability, along with severe anxiety, depression, and even addiction. Handling this traumatic situation the best that he could, he occupied his time by constantly surrounding himself with work, or at local bars attempting to self medicate. He was invited out by a member of his security team from work, to celebrate the same friends birthday

Which now leads us to how we met, after a few shots for the birthday boy, Patrick introduced me to his fellow co-workers which included Elton. He didn’t say much Elton was more of the observing type. After a few rounds of pool and the bartender calling last call, Patrick invited everyone to come back to his place to continue the party and play drinking games. We get to Patrick’s and after a round of shots, and a round of drinks Elton announced that he was going to step outside, to which I said I wanted to join. He and I got to talking about what we did, I mentioned I was a hairstylist, He told me that he was a bar manager and that his mom was a hairstylist as well. After about 15-20 minutes we went back inside and everyone was leaving. I went home the next day and noticed I had a new message on Facebook, to my surprise it was from Elton. He was pretty clever and funny in his message, after a few messages back and forth he suggested that we should meet up again soon and I agreed then asked “when?” his response..”RIGHT NOW”. I drove over to his place we stayed up until about 5 A.M, just talking about life and relationships, I told him I was a type 1 diabetic, we talked about that for a while, then got on the subject about dating and how we felt about the topic.

From that day on we were inseparable. A little more than a week after that we made it “Facebook official” and began dating. I only had one condition that I was very adamant about, which was that I wanted us to wait before we engaged in anything intimate. I had told him that most of the guys that I have dated before had a big problem with that, but he was extremely understanding and agreed that he wanted to wait also. A few weeks later, Elton noticed that my living situation at my brothers house wasn’t very ideal, and he suggested that I just move in with him. Which I basically lived there anyway, so it made sense.

From then on, not only our relationship but as a couple and as individuals we grew stronger and stronger. The trust we have in each other, and the unconditional love we share, is almost like a fairy tale. We both came from bad places but upon meeting each other and learning more and more about one another we found the balance that some people go a lifetime without. It’s been over a year, and not only have we moved back to my hometown we’ve accomplished so much in just a short amount of time. We went from living in with his mom, with no car and underpaid jobs to excelling in our careers, a new/used truck, a beautiful apartment with our 3 kitties, and the cherry that tops everything off we’re engaged and getting ready to plan one of the happiest days of our lives.

How long have you been together?
We have been together for a year and 2 months.

What is your favorite thing about each other?
Amiee: My favorite thing about Elton, is that despite all of the trials and tribulations he’s had to endure in his life; he is the most loving, caring selfless person I have ever met. He will do absolutely anything for the ones he loves and if he can’t he will find someone that can. I honestly and truly believe we were destined for each other, my love for him grows more and more everyday and I couldn’t imagine life without him.
Elton: My favorite thing about Amiee… I’ve been thinking a lot about it for a few days now, and if I had to pick just one thing I would say it would have to be that despite the fact that she has had to live with type one diabetes for the majority of her life, and that she has to go through the pains of pricking her finger’s multiple times a day taking multiple shot’s a day dealing with the highs and lows and all of the emotions she deals with, she’s still a very optimistic and positive person and just an overall delight to everyone she encounters.

What is your craziest and/or most fun memory together?
Our craziest memory together, would probably be when we were still living in Virginia. Elton had woken up pretty early in the morning, and was trying to get me in the habit of checking my blood sugar. He was saying my name shaking me and I was unresponsive, luckily a few days before I had explained to him that if I’m ever acting different or you notice I’m not myself make me check my blood sugar, depending on if it was high or low you may have to use this shot if I’m to low.
This day it just happens to be way to low, so low that in the 17 years I’ve been a type one diabetic I have never had to use the emergency glucose kit. Well it was Elton’s lucky day he had to use it, I was comprehensive enough to tell him to just stab me with it; when he hesitated I tried to do it myself. At that point he had taken the shot from me and literally stabbed me in the butt with it. After a few minutes I was becoming more coherent but didn’t remember a thing or what had happen. I just knew I felt horrible, but I was So thankful Elton was there with me, and that I wasn’t alone.

What would be a dream date night for you?
Realistically, our ideal date night would be to cook dinner at home together then get ready and go bowling for a few hours. Once we’re done bowling we would just drive around the back-roads, get a little lost for a while listen to music and enjoy each other’s company.

If you could do anything for each other, what would it be?
Amiee: If I could do anything for Elton, anything in the world… I would continue to make sure he knows how much he’s loved and appreciated. If I were to tell you I would want to go back and change all of the horrible things he had to deal with, I would be lying. Reason being is because if he didn’t go through the things he went through he wouldn’t be the man he is today, and I probably would have never met him that night at Longboards Bar and Grill.
Elton: If I could do anything for Amiee, it would be to take her on a long vacation so she can finally have the chance to relax, away from the stresses of work, bills
family, and friend’s so that she would only have herself to worry about for a few days, an opportunity she hasn’t had in a very long time.
