The Atlanta Journal-Constitution just cannot get themselves enough of the Francoeurs. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know Jeff Francoeur and his longtime love Catie recently tied the knot. And ever since, we’ve been treated to a number of intimate glimpses inside the lives of Atlanta’s most adorable couple.

First, we learned about the honeymoon.

Then, Jeff and Catie shared their favorite movies.

Today, we take a tour inside the couple’s 4-bedroom, 3 1/2 bath Duluth, Ga. home.

But that’s not all! We’re also treated to a photo album with pics from the couple’s Thanksgiving, wedding and honeymoon, as well as private moments at home.

And we get a super in depth look at everything Jeff and Catie, from his anoying habits to details about her gorgeous wedding gown.

Here are just a few of the way-too-cute tidbits the AJC has dug up:

  • For his 24th birthday, Catie made dinner reservations — during the college football national championship game. Faux pas!
  • Jeff is a clutz. So far he’s broken one framed picture given to the couple as a wedding present and two Christmas ornaments.
  • Jeff has “never played less golf” since getting married.
  • Jeff has trouble remembering to put the toilet seat down.
  • Her cellphone ring tone: “Can’t Touch This.”
  • His cellphone ring tone: “Beer in Mexico.”
  • Catie’s “homemade” chocolate chip cookies are really Pillsbury.
  • The Francoeurs have decided to wait at least five years to have a child.
  • One of Jeff’s and Catie’s two dogs goes to a dog psychyatrist for anxiety issues.
  • Catie is a University of Georgia grad.
  • Jeff, a Clemson fan, grudgingly coexists with a Bulldog cookie jar and pets with UGA collars.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

    Jeff Kent does it with sunflower seeds.

    When I had heard about his comments, my initial thought was “Oh come on… Don’t make me have to rally behind Jeff Kent…”

    Even so, the manner in which he said it is still pretty douchey.

    “gorgeous wedding gown”. Your words, Ward. Not mine.

  4. Sarah Green says:

    Two reactions:

    1. MY GOD when will baseball season get here and SPARE US from this mindless filler!?!

    2. What a ridiculously cute couple. Squeal!

  5. I usually hate this type of garbage news, especially when actual news organizations like the AJC print it. However, after everything that could go horribly wrong off the field did this Winter for the MLB, a little innocent, “aw shucks” story doesn’t bother me. I draw the line the day Mike Lukovich incorporates these two into his comics though.

  6. Coley Ward says:

    Matt, I would agree that there’s nothing wrong with the occasional “aw shucks” story. But let’s not kid ourselves. The AJC has now written FOUR stories about the Frenchies in the last month. PLUS, they did a story about the couple at Thanksgiving. That’s a lot of Frenchies.

    But you know what? I don’t care. I can’t get enough. These two are just that cute.

  7. I barfed on Sunday’s Living section.

  8. Sarah Green says:

    I can’t believe they aren’t planning on kids until five years from now. What will the AJC *do* until then?!?! If only there were something else to cover…something big…any sort of news event, really. But it’s just so quiet these days…I guess they have no choice.
