Decorating Style: Their house is very homey but modern at the same time -- light and clean.

Have Sex: Lindsey says, “We’re newlyweds. Need I say more?”

Favorite Vacation Spot: Maui is their absolute favorite! They loved snorkeling at Molokini Crater, biking down Haleakala Mountain, and traveling the Road to Hana to see the beautiful black sand beaches and waterfalls.

Anniversary Gift: They both enjoy a thoughtful card. Lindsey loves getting diamonds, though (Travis -- hint, hint).

Spend the Weekends: Fridays are usually spent going out to dinner. During the day on Saturdays, they hang out with family or friends and watch sports. Saturday nights are spent going to the bars downtown with friends. Sundays are for sports and outdoor activities when the weather permits.

On Weeknights: They make it a point to fix dinner together.

More About Lindsey & Travis: “We were definitely just friends all through college. We would always go to each other for advice about our relationship problems,” says Lindsey. She even tried to set Travis up with one of her best friends! Don’t worry, Lindsey and her friend are still close and laugh about it to this day. “She was even a bridesmaid in our wedding!”
