{ MATT & AUBREY }

Friday night's date sponsored by: Handbill Printers, Southern California's resource for off-set printing.


After my first date with Matt Laidlaw, I remember sitting down to be interviewed by my Staffers and being asked "How do you think the date went?" With a huge smile on my face I answered, "I don't think it could have gone any better." Now here I am, several weeks later, having been on Date #2 with Matt and would like to echo those same sentiments..."I don't think it could have gone any better!"

I wanted my last and final date to be amazing and memorable so I chose something that I knew Matt and I would both love to do together. I so wish you could have seen the look on his face when I told him we'd be going to the world famous Wave House in San Diego.  It's like Disneyland for extreme sports junkies like us!

Knowing what an avid wakeboarder and snowboarder Matt is, I knew he'd love it just as much as me. And he did!  We had the time of our lives learning to ride the FlowRider, the qualifier for Bruticus Maximus, which we later conquered (or at least tried to). That thing was a beast!!! I can't even tell you how much fun we had learning to steady ourselves on those boards with thousands of gallons of water rushing at us. Seriously, a simple fall felt like being thrown in a giant human washing machine. We got rocked for sure! But oh was it worth it! I seriously can't wait to get back down there and do it all over again.

Matt and I really did have the perfect date!  He even told me "That was the best date I've ever been on!"  And I couldn't agree more.  I absolutely loved seeing Matt's adventurous side and learning something new together. I still can't stop thinking about how he was so complimentary of me all day, even when I probably looked like an idiot falling time and time again. I'm thinking that's boyfriend material for sure! I would definitely be the luckiest girl in the world to end up with Matt at the end of all this. I wonder what my family would think if I chose to bring him home to meet them on Saturday.  Who will I ever choose...

Super fun date! We need sponsors so we can go do fun things! :)

Wow, Aubs! I wanted to be there to watch you two with all of the falling down! Gutsy date. Loved every minute of it, and it looked like you did too. Soooo...when do we get to find out WHO? I'd sre hate to choose. They've all been amazing. GL

Babbykins said...

Oh my gosh Aubrey. I don't know how you're going to choose. Matt and Dane are my favorites and it looks like they're yours, too!! I think you should have a third date with those final two to help you decide.

Good luck!!

Jill said...

You don't know me either-but you shared your panini recipe with me! I vote Matt! He seems like the once you connect the best with. And I really want to go to San Diego now!

Stephanie said...

What a fun date! You both rocked it! What an amazing journey this has been. Aubrey and Matt, you compliment each other so well!

MacDicken said...

What a tough decision. I like Dane, Matt and Larry. Matt and Larry our my top two picks for you. I hope whoever you choose works out. These are all great guys and i'm sure you'll be happy. I've really enjoyed watching this journey. Good Luck!

Jaime said...

I love the giggling behind the camera every time you ate it! Way to rock the waves, lady!

theblibbys said...

Fun, Fun, Fun! The chemistry between you two is apparent. One of the best dates this whole season! You are such a awesome girl who likes to do so many adventurous things! We had a blast filming again. I can't wait to see who you pick :)
PS: Love the outtakes at the end when you gave me the "Youuuuuuu" hahahahahhahahahahahah and the Hurricane Simulator! So fun!

Caity said...

I came into this a little late and didn't get to see all the dates. So I missed his first one. I seriously thought that Dane or Larry had it in the bag, but now I'm rooting for this guy. You seemed to really have so much fun together! And the longer videos really have been so fun too! Thanks for sharing your experience and good luck!

Salins family said...

A difficult decision but I'm going back to my first instinct....Matt. I wavered with Larry & Dane because they're nice but I think Matt is the one.
Good luck! What an exciting experience and thanks for sharing it with us.

One more comment...I think your family should meet the top 3 to see how they connect with them. I don't want it to end!! I hope you post the out-takes and keep us posted with future announcements...

Shayla said...

Ok, I have been so conflicted about this, I can't even imagine what it's been like for you! I really liked Larry, and Dane in the beginning, and then Rick... but Matt is it for me. No matter what it's exciting to know that you're going to make the best decision for you & end up happy!!! YAY!

Scott said...

I AM SO JEALOUS.


oh and I like him :)

A said...

Ahh, the suspense is killing me!! Although, I think the chemistry between you and Matt is undeniable. ;) Wonderful!

Jessica Reeves said...

Aubs, Matt is SO cute!!! You guys look so cute together! Pick Matt! The suspense is seriously killing me!!! I can't wait!

Aubrey, You don't know me, but I'm married to one of Mark Bracken's best friends, Steven Paul (and I'll admit I'm one of your loyal blog-stalkers-you're SO talented!). Steven and I grew up in Glendora and have known Matt and his family for a long time and Matt actually now lives 3 houses down from my parents. It's SUCH a small world!! Mark called Steven and I a couple weeks ago to tell us that you were dating him and we couldn't believe it. How great that you two found each other!
