Me and my spouse

Again, another thingy going around on Facebook. Thought I'd post it on my blog instead.

How long have you been together? 7 years 11 months and some odd days

How long did you know each other before you started dating? 4 months and we courted, not dated

Who said I love you first? Joe did, accidentally. We had this thing where we weren't going to say "I love you" until we knew for sure we really meant those words and would stand by them. So we would say things like, "I appreciate you", or "I'm so glad you are in my life." One day, he let it slip in the mall parking lot. Of course, it was perfect!!

Whose siblings do/did you see the most? Possibly mine? I don't know, we spend alot of time hanging out with both our families.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? Planning our family

Did you go to the same school? No

Are you from the same hometown? No

Who is the smartest? He has a Master's degree, I have no college education. I scored higher on the ACT. He has alot more wisdom than I do. He only looks stupid when I make him look that way, seems to be happening alot lately. We were in Lowe's the other day, I told him I saw a lady he used to work with, he walked up behind her and said, "Hey, Jackie!" She turned around and it wasn't her!!

Who is the most sensitive? He is more compassionate and thoughtful than me.

Where do you eat out most as a couple? Our place used to be O'Charley's, lately it's Rafferty's.

Where have you traveled the farthest as a couple? Miami, Florida We went to Ft. Lauderdale on our honeymoon.

Who has the worst temper? He does, but it is because I frustrate him to no end by twisting his words.

Who does the cooking? I do always! He can make a sandwich or a bowl of cereal, but that's not cooking.

Who is the most social? He is, I have a hard time being social, because our kids tend to stress me out during social get togethers. I let that hinder me, I wish I wasn't that way.

Who is the neat-freak? We both can be, but in different ways. I am more specific, like I have a certain way it has to be done. Just so so, if not than I will put it off until I can do it my right way. He'll just do it, but not my kinda perfect. He religiously makes the bed, which isn't a priority for me.

Who hogs the bed? I do, I sleep with my own blanket and will never hear the end of it.

Who wakes up earlier? He does, almost always. I hate that I am not a morning person.

Where was your first date? On Valentine's day, 2002 to Texas Roadhouse. We started courting March of 2001, but didn't get to go on a "date" until then. Before that, we did things with our families and hung out at work alot.

Who has the bigger family? He has 5 siblings, I have 3.

Do you get flowers often? Yes, roses always

Who do you spend the holidays with? Both our families.

Who is more jealous? Me definitely!!

How long did it take to get serious? Right from the beginning. Joe came to dinner with my entire family and met with my dad numerous times before we went on a date.

Who sings better? Me, but he sings alot more than me.

Who does/did the laundry? Used to be me all the time, since Jenna was born he helps me more than not with the folding and putting away.

Who’s better with the computer? Me

Who drives when you are together? Joe physically drives, I verbally drive, so I'm told!!

Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong? Joe, again so I'm told!!

Who wears the pants in the relationship? As much as I'd like to say him, I know I get my way, way too much.

Who cries more? Me

Will you still be together 5 years from now? Absolutely!! Without a doubt. He is the man God made just for me. Love you George!!!
