Tagged by Becca! to Reveal the Secrets of My Fab Marital Union

How long have you and your significant other been together? We started hanging out in June 2001. We have known each other for almost seven years. This seems like a very long time to me.

Who eats more? Definitely Dh. Though when I am pregnant I can almost match him. Not really.

Who said "I love you" first? He did. Well what he actually said was, "I think I'm falling in love with you," and me being a complete chicken responded, "Me too." Then I spent the rest of the week grinning like an idiot.

Who is taller? Dh is: 5'10"; I am 5'4".

Who sings better? Me.

Who is smarter? Me. Dh agrees. Though he will then launch into a pseudo-philosophical monologue about how there are book smarts, and then there are street smarts, and he has the street smarts. Blah blah blah.

Who does the laundry? Mostly me. Dh does occasionally, but I don't count his laundry-doing, because he washes and dries the clothes, then leaves them in baskets all over the place. I think he figures we'll wear it all again eventually so we might as well leave it within easy reach. Or something.

Who does the dishes? Me. I think Dh did the dishes right after I had Baby E. And one time when I was sick.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Me.

Who pays the bills? Dh.

Who mows the lawn? Dh.

Who cooks dinner? Almost always me.

Who drives when you are together? It's about half and half.

Who is more stubborn? Tie.

Who is the first to admit when they're wrong? Usually me. Dh takes longer to cool off.

Whose parents do you see the most? Dh's. His parents live 5 hours away by car. My parents live 5 hours away by plane. Though my mom flies out frequently to see her only grandbaby.

Who kissed who first? Dh kissed me.

Who proposed? Dh.

Who is more sensitive? Ha ha Me.

Who has more friends? Me, though Dh has lifelong friends. I moved around too much growing up to have any of those.

Who has more siblings? Tie! (Five.)

Joe says the same thing to me about street smarts vs. book smarts. He, too, thinks he has more street smarts than I do (he's probably right).

Chas said...

I don't think I realized your parents live so far from you. Five hours by plane is quite far...they must live across the country.

I like your DH's philosophy on laundry. I wish I could make it my own. Some weeks I do but everyone whines about it.

And you have fashion smarts which tops his street smarts.

That settles it, you have to have 5 kids.

OMG, I think I would answer almost every question the exact same way!!! That's funny.

Christy said...

Ha! My husband always says he has "street smarts" too. Whatever. I am sure living a comfy life in the suburbs means you have lots of "street smarts."

I love how you say you "grinned like an idiot" when your hubby said he was falling for you. That is really sweet. There is nothing like young love!

I'm with melain. I would answer most the same way. :)
