Michael & Matt (real twins)
For those of you who don’t know, Matt is in fact the older brother of a set of twins. His younger brother Michael could be the spitting image of him, but their personalities–which are quite different–encourage different styles.
Michael is hippie-Matt, as Matt is preppy-Michael.
But just as they are different, they are the same–like any family member. But the twins especially carry a bond that none other can fully understand. I’ve witnessed it between the two brothers. It’s amazing.
But this isn’t about Michael. This is about Matt’s other twin.

Dinner at Bailey's (l-r: Mel, Kristy, Christine, & Wendy)
Last Friday night–no, we didn’t dance on table tops, take too many shots or kissed and forgot, Katy Perry– but we did hit the strip in downtown Nashville. We started with a dinner at Bailey’s with several good friends and then moved our little party to The Stage. I totally don’t remember The Stage being so lame. When I was in my twenties it was super awesome to just stand around drinking as we listened to a live band. Now I question my 20-year-old brain power. Seven of us crowded around a table fit for two, screaming in conversation over the piped in music (No live band played while we were in there–boo!). It felt quite pointless, like a waste of time. That is until our good buddy, Eric, pointed out Matt’s twin across the room.

Dinner at Bailey's (l-r: Eric, Rayne, gangsta-Matt)
A tad shorter and with a bowl hair cut, this guy was wearing the same get-up as Matt. Pink striped shirt, black sweater, jeans. Granted, he wasn’t as handsome as the Matt we all know and love, but it was quite the funny sight. With Matt in tow, I approached the guy and asked if I could get a picture of the two of them together. The girl he was with instantly began to giggle as she saw the similiarities.
And this is what came to pass…
Matt & his fake twin
Afterward, was Cadillac Ranch and dancing. I did not take part in the dancing, but I did enjoy a quick game of Angry Birds on my cell phone before Matt called me out for being lame. *sigh*
Next week, I’ll fill you in on my birthday adventure. Until it warms up our adventures are pretty much limited to twins in bars and stinky farts in stores. We are planning a super-awesome, 3-day camping trip to the Virgin Falls this May and I can’t wait!
Oh, winter! Hurry on up and get out of here. I’m tired of you.
