I've been tagged by Mandy with this cute little questionnaire about me and my hubby. (Careful if you go to her link; there are some nasty toe pictures.) :) Since Marcus and I are celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary next week, this is perfect timing.
How long have you been together? We have been together 7 years, and as of next week, married 5 years.
How long did you date? 2 years.
How old is he? OLD! 36. And yes, up until I had my hair done last week, I had more gray hair then he does. He is the one who makes me go gray. I am so easy to live with and deal with, that's why he doesn't have any.
Who said ‘I love you’ first? Marcus did. No way would I put my emotions out there first.
Who is taller? Marcus
Who is smarter? I hate to admit it, but Marcus is. He has an answer and solution to everything. I do like to remind him that I graduated high school with a 3.963 GPA...which obviously means nothing now..but it helps me feel better all right!
Who does the laundry? Me. Marcus says he is afraid of ruining my clothes..I think that is just an excuse.
Who does the dishes? Me. Three loads a day. Whining and complaining the whole time. I hate doing the dishes. When I was growing up, my sister and I had to take turns emptying the dishwasher. I have hated it ever since.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? We have changed numerous times. When Emma was a newborn, I was. Now Marcus is. It just depends on the night usually. As long as I have my pillows, I'll sleep wherever.
Who pays the bills? I pay our personal bills and he pays all the businesses bills.
Who mows the lawn? Marcus usually does. Before I got pregnant, I would help. One would mow while the other would weed eat. But last summer I was pregnant and then just had a baby. You couldn't pay me enough to sit on the riding lawn mower for awhile after that. I would like to get back out there this summer and help though. I actually enjoy it. My hillbilly Vernal side shines through when I am riding the riding mower.
Who cooks dinner? Up until two weeks, the answer would have been just Marcus. Now it is both of us. I try to do it on the days when it works in Orem so he doesn't have to worry about making dinner when he gets home.
Who is more stubborn? I am. I will be the first one to admit it. I get it from my dad. I am not ashamed.
Who kissed who first? Marcus kissed me first. He couldn't resist any longer. I'm that hot...or something.
Who asked who out? He asked me out first. Then he ditched me. Some excuse about Jessi having a dentist appt and he wanted to stay with her or something. He was just chicken and had to bring his little girl in to make himself feel better. :) He eventually asked me out again after I was a little, shall we say, pushy?!
Who proposed? Marcus did. I'll have to do a post on that whole experience sometime. It was awesome!
Who is more sensitive? Marcus is, hands down. He is very in touch with his emotions. (That's my nice way of saying "sissy"! I kid!!) He still can't tell the story of us bringing Christian into our family without tearing up. It is very sweet.
He is my stud!
