A New Tag
What is your Hubby's name? Dan
How long have you been together? We met when we were 18 and spent every second of the summer together (except the day after our first date when I had to go see "my missionary" off at the airport and he had a date planned with his girlfriend.) He left on my birthday for a two-year mission--the worst birthday of my life. He came home and when we spoke on the phone for the first time we decided to be just friends while I figured out my feelings for my current boyfriend. When we met up at college for the first time again we spent every second together after that. I guess it was all that time together that got us through the years of investment banking when we didn't have any time together. It's been almost 19 years since our first date.
Who said I love you first? He did. Since I was currently in love with someone else and knowing that he would be gone for two years I was pretty realistic that a future together was not very likely. But by the time summer was over he had completely won me over and I was in love for life.
Who is smarter? In the words of Blue, "Hmmm."
Who does the housework? Monica and Hector
Who sleeps on the right? When we're in bed, he's on the right.
Who pays the bills? Mostly auto pay. But Dan has paid the others for a while. He says it's my turn.
Who cooks dinner? Me on the weekdays. Dan generally cooks on Sundays. He also cooks breakfast most of the time.
Who drives when you are together? Dan
Who is more stubborn? Me.
Who kissed who first? Dan--on the first date. Another reason I said I couldn't marry him. I didn't want my kids to think it was okay to kiss on the first date.
Who asked who out first? Well, if you count passing me a note in class which said EXACT QUOTE: "Come over tonight and cook me dinner" as asking out on a date, then it was him. I, of course, passed it back saying "Uhhhh... How about you cook me dinner?!" All of his friends were having a BBQ/pool party, and the guys did all the cooking. Dan even made me breakfast at midnight (about) but I've said too much as I know my daughter reads this. But suffice it to say that I knew I'd found a good thing when I found someone willing to cook for me! (And what happened to the note? He tore it up and threw it away so his girlfriend wouldn't find it. And the next day I headed off to the airport to say goodbye to "my missionary" with a very guilty conscience!)
Who proposed? He did. He made dinner and had also composed a very sweet poem.
Who has more siblings? Me
Who wears the pants? I want to know what Dan would say!
I tag Michelle (tag Sheree and she can tag Bekah so we can hear everyone's stories!), Melissa, Leslie and Camille!
