My life with R.....a couples tag

Using Caity's tag, I'm posting my own answers of my life with my dh. The photo is one of my favs of us from a few years back. We've switched weights tho! Haha. He is thinner and I'm fatter after having Ava. Oh well. I also like the photo of us on the sidebar where we are dancing. It's not the most flattering of me, but we were happy and having a good time that night and it shows on our faces. Ok...here we go:

How long have you been married? 18 1/2 years!
How long did you date? 4 years before we were married
How old is he? He's 39 just like moi, but he is 7 months older than I am.
Who eats more? Well, duh. Him of course. You should see him eat a grapefruit. I swear he inhales it. There is NO chewing involved! He also can't get just a #4 or something at Mcdonalds. He has to add a fish or chicken sandwich to it. Quite the piggy, yet I'm the one who is pudgy!
Who said I love you first? He did. We waited to get to know each other before throwing out that word. Then the day came. We were driving in his car and he had to pull over to the side of the road. Out it came. I said it back and then our friend Alicia in the back seat who was sleeping, sat up and said, "It's about time!"
Who is taller? Him. He isn't really tall though by any means...I think he's about 5' 10", but I'm only 5' 3" at the most!
Who sings better? Well, I guess that would be me. But I bet if he would sing more often and louder (he's a quiet hymn singer in sacrament), I would know. He's quiet, but I know he can sing on key :)
Who is smarter? Oh HIM for sure. I've been beaten with the stupid stick.
Who does the laundry? Me of course. But he's been known to put in some of his work coats once in awhile, but I usually end up finishing them for him.
Who does the dishes? Again, me of course. I think I caught him doing it one time at someone else's house trying to be nice.
Who cooks dinner? Me, but he does all the grilling. He also makes things in the George Forman when he feels like it. He says I'm not the best cook, but I sure can bake! True. I'm not that bad at cooking, but I sure could improve!
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Him. At our last house, I was on the right, but in this house I'm on the left because it's closer to the bathroom. I'm a frequent pee pee-er.
Who pays the bills? Mostly me. Depends on the bill though. Sometimes he will go pay a place that he owes, but I mostly pay the utility, mortgage etc.
Who mows the lawn? I've never mowed a lawn in my life! If he doesn't do it, my 9 year old son does :) That little man does a great job too!
Who drives when you are together? 99.9 percent of the time it's him. I hate to drive when he's in the car because he makes me nervous. I will drive on trips when he gets too tired though.
Who is more stubborn? We are equally stubborn but in different ways and over diff things.
Whose parents do you see the most? Well, his parents live in our town and my Dad lives 45 mins away, so I guess his. My Mom died in 2002.
Who proposed? He did on the beach in the dark after the 4th of July fireworks.
Who has more friends? Oh boy. It used to be that he teased me that he had more and I was a boring homebody. But actually, he just has more acquaintances and I have more true friends. He knows SO many people, but they aren't really his friends that he would do things with or confide in. I have more confiding friends. Speaking of that...who is up for a GNO?!!! I need to get away!
Who has more siblings? Me for sure. He has 3 siblings, and I have 7.
Who wears the pants in the family? Well, I'm wearing a nightgown right now, sooooo........no, really...HE obviously does, but he takes my opinions into consideration when I can convince him to listen! Haha.

Ok, I'm adding one more question:
Who kissed who first? He did. He did it on our first date when we were in Farrells Ice Cream shop. I had my finger in one of those blood pressure machines and then he kissed me. My blood pressure shot up! Awww...sappy huh?!

And that's it. I'll save more mushiness for a post on our 19 year anniversary in May :)

2 Whaddaya have to say about this post?:

Awww... very cute. :) You and R have been together forever, huh? Seems like I never knew you without him... obviously that's not true, but it seems like it!
Remember Farrells? Yum! Funny that they had a blood pressure machine at an ice cream parlor!
