Thank you all for your sweet, caring comments. You've been such a comfort. Love you guys!
I figured I'd do this little quiz popping up all over blog-land to lighten the mood. [I know I still have Part 2 of the questions to do. I swear I'll get to it!!]
♥ What are your middle names? Alyssa & Alan. [Now, you know our middle names, and not our first names.. lol]
♥ How long have you been together? 2 years
♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating? About 5 years
♥ Who asked whom out? After having a long distance "phone relationship" for 2 months, we sealed it with a kiss and assumed it was official. :)
♥ Whose siblings do/did you see the most? His. We're 1200 miles from mine.
♥ Do you have any children together? Not yet.. give us ~3 years.
♥ What about pets? Not yet. Once we own our own house, it's on the agenda! :)
♥ Did you go to the same school? Nope (again, the distance thing)
♥ Who is the smartest? book smarts- me / critical thinking & ingenuity- him
♥ Who is more sensitive? Me. Oh lord.. me. If you ask him, he'll say too much and grin. :)
♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple? We have a fave mexican place that we go from time to time.. but every Saturday after church we go to Culver's
♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? Maine from Ohio (home for me, 21 hours from where we are now)
♥ Who has the craziest exes? Um.. neither of us have a whole slew of exes, but I'm pretty sure I'd take the cake on this one..
♥ Who has the worst temper? Neither of us have much of a temper.. but me if it comes to getting upset over smaller things.. him when it comes to a really deep issue making him mad
♥ Who does the cooking? Me. The only meal he's cooked since we've been married is grilled cheese. Although, when I make hamburgers or chicken, he does the grilling.
♥ Who is more social? Me.
♥ Who is the neat-freak? That'd be me again..
♥ Who is more stubborn? Me.. but of course it's hard for a stubborn person to admit they are..
♥ Who hogs the bed? Neither really.. but I have gotten whacked in the face a time or two. :)
♥ Who wakes up earlier? Me. I start work a half hour earlier.. but he does get up and eat breakfast with me. :)
♥ Where was your first date? Silver Beach on Lake Michigan
♥ Who has the bigger family? Me
♥ Do you get flowers often? Not a lot, but when I do, it makes me flutter :)
♥ How do you spend the holidays? Well.. we've only been married 8 1/2 months so we don't have a tradition yet, but I imagine we'll be alternating between Ohio & Maine w/ both families.
♥ Who is more jealous? neither
♥ How long did it take to get serious? uh.. on his end- he told his bff he was going to marry me before we started dating. For me.. still quick, but after 2 months of "phone dating" and a few weeks of real dating (meaning him driving to MI to see me on the weekends), I was serious. Guess we had to either 'do it or die' because of the distance.
♥ Who eats more? Him. But I can keep up better than is probably lady-like. :)
♥ Who does/did the laundry? Me. Once in a while I can convince him to switch a load over or fold his boxers.
♥ Who’s better with the computer? Him. I married an under-cover genius.
♥ Who drives when you are together? Him. Always him.
That was fun! Def. helps get my mind of things! :)
