You had me at new dishes.
Matt is a "go big or go home" kind of guy. So he didn't like the idea of using our 2 sets of dishes to serve Christmas dinner for 14 people on. So he went out and bought me 16 place settings of Christmas china and 16 place settings of stainless flatware. Okay, it's not fine china or silverware, but OMG it is so nice to have. It looks pretty good on the Christmas table, and even better, we don't worry about somebody breaking it!
Matt is my hero.
