How did you meet your spouse?
We met in the Cafeteria at Ricks College (in Rexburg, Idaho) in 1995... but before we actually met, I followed him/stalked him :) What can I say? I was intrigued by his white-boy afro :)
Where did you go on your first date?
He took me (and my friend, Jenn) fishing. He asked me out and he's such a big guy, I decided to bring a friend along, just in case he turned out to be crazy or something. Haha. There was no need to have a body guard after all :)
How long have you been together?
Well, since we started dating, it's been about 12 1/2 years! (but only 9 since we got married)
Who eats more?
haha! What kind of question is this... 'excuse me, Dave, can you give me the printout you've prepared of everything you ate today so we can compare?' Oh please! haha! But, I think I would have to say Dave does.
Who said I love you first?
Dave wins this one. I was a little hesitant with the "L" word. I wanted to be sure... it took me a few more dates than him to get to the point where I actually knew it and could say it. :) Plus, it was fun to watch him try even harder to win me over while he waited!!
Who is taller?
Dave is lots taller than me (I like it that way)
Who sings better?
I don't know. We both can carry a tune but neither of us would do a solo. Well, Dave is gutsy, so maybe he would. Dave has a nice voice.
Who is smarter?
I don't know our IQ's... lol. I don't know.
Who does the laundry?
I used to always do it, but Dave has taken it over in the past year or so. I don't mind so much now, because he's finally figured out that you really do need to separate the whites out... red and black don't do anything good for the brightness of whites. lol
Who does the dishes?
We both do them. We used to have a rule that whoever didn't cook would do the dishes... and it still kind of stands the same. But since I'm pregnant.. he's been doing them more often than me :)
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
I do. I don't know why... it just worked out that way when we got married.
Who pays the bills?
Dave earns the money, I write the checks.
Who mows the lawn?
We both do. Again, I'm pregnant, so he's been doing it lately. :)
Who cooks dinner?
If Dave's home, he cooks dinner. If he's not home, I do, but it's almost always just kid food that I make. I guess about once a month I'll make a real meal (not just kid food). It works.
Who drives when you are together?
We take turns. If it's my car, I'll usually start off driving and I'm usually tired on the way home, so he'll drive. If it's his car, he drives... unless I'm alone and joy riding!
Who is more stubborn?
I think we might fight about who's more stubborn. I think I am. And I think he'd say he is. Or maybe the other way around. Either way, I know I'm stubborn...like a bull.
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
Well, I'm never wrong!! LOL
Who kissed who first?
Dave wins this one. :)
Dave proposed to me at a Santana concert in Utah. I think it was in Park City. It was quite a surprise and very sweet. He was so nervous, I think, that on the way to the concert he started have major muscle spasms in his back and so I had to take over driving and go to the ER!! They gave him muscle relaxers and fluids and got him feeling better... I drove the rest of the way and then he proposed when we got there, in the parking lot. He read me a poem he had written for me and then asked me to marry him and gave me the ring. :) I knew we would get married... I just had no idea he had picked up the ring and would ask me that night!
Who is more sensitive?
I'm way more sensitive... I'm a bawl baby. But he's sensitive too, in a 'manly' (haha) way
Who has more friends?
We both have lots of friends, I just keep up with mine and he doesn't. As far as current friends go (that actually live in this state), I would say that I do.
Who has more siblings?
That would be me. There are 8 kids in my family... 4 boys and 4 girls. But he's not far behind.. he comes from a family of 6 kids... 4 boys and 2 girls
Who wears the pants?
We both wear pants. He definitely prefers shorts though. hehe! We like to make decisions together. :)
I tag (that means you need to answer these questions and post them on your blog, too!!!) Vanessa, Hannah, Mandy
