I was tagged in a blog game last week by my friend Rebecca. According the the game, I'm supposed to tell you all 6 random facts about myself and post a random picture. However, I'm terrible at these "random facts" type things--they're too wide-open and I overthink them! So, I saw this on another blog I was reading last week and it looked more defined, and should still provide you with facts you probably don't already know. Enjoy!
1. What is your husband's name?
2. Who eats more?
Usually him--but there are days, especially when I'm nursing or pregnant (which for those of you who are curious has been all of the last 42 months!)
3. Who said, "I love you" first?
He did, whispered it in my ear as we were saying good-night and I didn't even realize that's what he'd said until he'd already left!
4. Who is taller?
5. Who is smarter?
That's a good question--we haven't really ever settled on it ourself. "Depends on the topic" is probably the best answer.
6. Who is more sensitive?
7. Who does the laundry?
Usually me, but he's really great about helping: if he sees that it's piling up or knows that there's a load in the washer or dryer he'll switch it over or help fold!
8. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Me (if you're looking at the bed)
9. Who pays the bills?
10. Who cooks more?
Definitely me--but he's learned a lot over the past five years and could do it if he needed to now.
11. Who is more stubborn?
In most cases me, but we're both pretty stubborn (and so are the kids, shocking, I know)
12. Who is the first to admit they are wrong?
Usually me--but I'm also usually the one to press the issue that I'm right.
13. Who has more siblings?
That would yet again be me. I have 3 younger brothers, James has 2 younger brothers
14. Who wears the pants in the relationship?
Let me start by saying I hate this question! I guess I'd say we share a pair? Again, it just depends on the issue who makes the final call.
15. What do you like to do together?
We love to travel (but haven't really gotten to do so since the kids came along), read, hike, and talk about life and current happenings. In all honesty, we mostly end up watching movies or TV together these days since we're too tired/busy to do much else, but we enjoy that too.
16. Who eats more sweets?
James. I eat more chocolate though.
17. How did you meet?
We met my freshman year of high school at a youth event that both our churches were participating in. But, it never once crossed my mind during high school that we might be together. We were increasingly better friends throughout the years, especially once we started attending the same college, but again we just friends for the first couple of years (for real, not just one of those things people say-- he dated several other people during that time). I knew I was interested in him before he realized he was interested in me--I'd really given up on anything ever happening right about the time I found out he liked me!
18. Who asked whom out first?
James asked me out during the summer between our Sophomore and Junior years of undergrad. After knowing each other for 6 years prior to dating our courtship moved pretty fast. We got engaged after about 6 months and were married a year after beginning to date.
19. Who kissed who first?
James kissed me first and then I kissed him back, and well...we've had a lot of practice since then. ;)
20. Who proposed?
James again--he asked me while on a ski lift during a ski trip with his family in Ontario. I'm definitely a novice skiier, but I was so dazed, happy, giddy once we got off the lift that I took a wrong turn and headed down a black diamond. James did a great job getting me down safely, but it was a bit unnerving. (How's that for a metaphor for life?) And yes, for those of you wondering, that does mean that my darling husband carried a ring around all day in his jacket pocket while downhill skiing!
21. His best features and qualities?
I love his eyes. :) Best qualities, he's patient, fun to be around, compassionate, and intelligent. Beyond all that, no one could ask for a more loving husband or father. I am so blessed!!!!
I'm not going to officially "tag" anyone, but I would enjoy reading this about any of you who just read my story! :)
