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!

It's true -- I said I love you first. I was crazy about her -- I just couldn't resist!

She is definitely smarter (though she let's me pretend I'm smarter much of the time to humor me!)

Hey -- I do some of the housework, OK, actually not that much. I can do dishes and sometimes do them.

I'm ready for her to pay the bills -- she'll avoid the late fees i often deal with since I only get around to it once in a while.

My proposal was lame -- I've heard of so many cooler things -- I'm glad she thought it was cute. I'm not super creative -- I was just really excited to get married.

Who wears the pants? -- husbands (though I'm sure it's only wives reading) -- it's important to let your wife perceive that she wears the pants regardless of who actually makes most decisions -- that makes everyone happy -- "happy wife is a happy life" -- jk -- I would actually say we are pretty balanced on the things that really matter.

I love you Ang!

All I can say is "ohhhh, so cute!" lol

I love the first date story! That is so funny.

Dan not creative?! Whatever. Of course I was the 14 year old who just thought my bigger sister's love life was SO cool. But I still think that song was really catchy: "I'm sittin on my bed with a pumpkin on my head, thinking about ANGELA!" Okay, you have to hear it. It has a great beat. Angela, maybe you can add a little audio clip. :)

And I was impressed with all the gifts Dan gave Angela. Man, all kinds of cool stuff: leather jacket, nice clothes, packages from Argentina.

This was so fun to read!
