Spouse Tag

I thought these were some fun questions. Don't worry Shauna... I won't tag you. ;)

How did you meet your spouse?
My cousin Shauna met him online and after determining they weren't compatible relationship-wise, she decided she needed to set him up with me.

Where did you go on your first date?
We drove from Orem to Logan to trade cars back with my brother.

How long have you been together? Two years and about 3 months.

Who eats more? Brent's got a bigger appetite, but I definitely eat more sweets.

Who said I love you first? I have no idea.

Who sings better? Brent has a wonderful voice, but he goes off-key more easily than he will admit. I stay on key better. So it's a toss up. I think we sound great when we sing together.

Who is smarter? About what? My nerdy husband is quite smart, but I'm no dummy!

Who does the laundry? I do most of the time, but he helps out a lot.

Who does the dishes? Brent does almost exclusively. Leaning over the sink for more than a minute kills my back.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do.

Who pays the bills? Brent does almost exclusively because all our money is kept in his account and paid with auto bill pay.

Who mows the lawn? Neither.

Who cooks dinner? Brent does most of the time because he enjoys it more.

Who drives when you are together? Brent does almost exclusively. When I drive, the seat belt buckle digs into my hip but it doesn't when I'm a passenger.

Who is more stubborn? Probably me. But I'm also the first to apologize.

Who is the first to admit when they’re wrong? Oh, that would be me.

Whose parents do you see the most? Mine, since we live in their house. Brent's mom died a year before we met and we only get up to northern Utah to see his dad every couple of months.

Who kissed who first? Brent kissed me. I told him we should "preempt the mistletoe" and he practically attacked me.

Who proposed? He did. 15 days after we met. We were doing a very good job of not watching Monty Python's Holy Grail at the time.

Who has more friends? I do, by far. Brent's not nearly as social as I am. He has a few very close friends, but I have a pretty large social circle including some very close and some close and tons of not so close friends.

Who has more siblings? Brent. You would think that with my 8 siblings I would win, but he has 12.

Who wears the pants in the family? I do about a lot of things (most?). Brent is really a "go with the flow" kind of guy.

I tag anyone who is willing to answer it. Shannon, Lisa, Andrea, Tran, etc. But not Shauna. Never Shauna. :)

I love the picture! Isn't it great to have a husband who cooks? I don't like cooking very much either so I am glad he does. Espcially when we have guests!
