is kind of like the 25 things – except they are pre-decided questions
and it's about you and your spouse, not just you. Come on, play along –
inquiring minds want to know! 😉
To do yours: copy and paste to your notes/new note. Highlight these answers and replace with your own.
♥ What are your middle names?
Erin and James (we actually have friends that are getting married named Erin and James and that was kind of a fun realization).
♥ How long have you been together?
A little over 7 years. Married for just over 4.
♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating?
4 years. We were friends during high school.
♥ Who asked who out?
Um? Ben, I guess. But it just kind of happened. We never really had a first date.
♥ How old were each of you?
I was 18, he was 20.
♥ Whose siblings do/did you see the most?
My brother since we see him when we go back to Michigan but his sister is in Pennsylvania. But we don't see either very often.
♥ Do you have any children together?
♥ What about pets? Names?
2 cats, Gatsby and Daisy. 🙂
♥ Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Not much right now. In the past it's been, money, time, and not living anywhere near each other.
♥ Did you go to the same school?
Same middle school and high school, different colleges.
♥ Are you from the same home town?
♥ Who is the smartest?
Haha, can I say me? I think we both have our areas.
♥ Who is the most sensitive?
♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple?
♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Mexico for our honeymoon.
♥ Who has the craziest exes?
They don't really play a role in our lives anymore but we both dated the wrong people in high school.
♥ Who has the worst temper?
I'm not really sure. We both get upset at different things.
♥ Who does the cooking?
Ben. But mostly we eat easily-prepared foods.
♥ Who is more social?
Me. But he has more friends in Florida.
♥ Who is the neat-freak?
Ben. But I don't mind cleaning – I just hate picking up.
♥ Who is the more stubborn?
♥ Who hogs the bed?
Me. I like to sleep diagonally. But things are much better with the queen size bed than they were with the full.
♥ Who wakes up earlier?
Ben. He's up at 5:30. I sleep about 2 hours longer. 🙂
♥ Where was your first date?
We didn't really have one. The first time he kissed me, I had been visiting him at college and we were in the parking lot. Does that count? I think the next time we saw each other we were out with a bunch of friends and both of us got pulled over and given tickets for an illegal turn and then we went back to his parents' house and watched Tarzan.
♥ Who has the bigger family?
Same size immediate family. I have the bigger extended family by quite a bit.
♥ Do you get flowers often?
No. The only time I ever want them is after a dance performance.
♥ How do you spend the holidays?
Visiting family and reading.
♥ Who is more jealous?
Ben. But it's not really an issue anymore.
♥ How long did it take to get serious?
Well, it took 4 years for us to get together, but after that it got serious pretty quickly. I'd say we knew we'd get married after a couple months. It was one of those relationships that you only get in if you expect a lot because we were such good friends first.
♥ Who eats more?
Ben. He's a boy.
♥ Who does/did the laundry?
That's generally considered my job, but Ben always helps a lot.
♥ Who’s better with the computer?
Probably me. I'm more likely to try to search out a solution to something.
I'm sure you all have been tagged, so just do this if you want to.
