Tagged, Your It!

This is fun, quick, and easy enough to do in five minutes before the news reports the weather. So, thanks Chris. I tag, specifically: Jerolyn, Jennifer, Erin, Annilee, and Alexis. I do think it's fun for everyone.

What's his name? Tyler

How long have you been together? 11 years married

How long did you date? 6 months

How old is he? 33

Who eats more? Usually Tyler, but I've been known to give him a run for his money.

Who said I love you first? It was me. Shocker, huh!

Who is taller? Tyler (I couldn't have handled marrying someone shorter than me, and I wanted to be able to wear heels even though I'm already 5'10.)

Who is smarter? We're pretty balanced. He does the numbers while I would rather read and write. Neither of us like science (ask Mackenzie who we try to bribe to NOT participate in the optional science fair each year.)

Who does laundry? I do unless he's desperate for clean underwear, then he'll start a load of undies.

Who does the dishes? I do mostly, but he'll do a load once in a while. Mackenzie has started loading the dishes and ALL the kids help unload (I REALLY hate to unload while loading involves some mad organization skills for maximum dish-washing possibilities, which is a little exciting to me. Weird, huh. I've been known to unload what Tyler's loaded to make it look better and be more full.)

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? If the kids were standing at the foot of our bed looking up at us, Tyler would be on the right side. That'll change, though, when the baby comes. We're not so stuck in that rut that we can't shake it up every now and then.

Who pays the bills? Tyler took it over a couple years ago. One of the best choices we made!

Who mows the lawn? You mean our rock grooming? Uh, that would be the lawn service we pay.

Who cooks dinner? Mostly me, but Tyler is a great cook and I LOVE it when he takes the reigns and shops AND cooks. Kindof interesting, Tyler does most of our grocery shopping willingly. I love him!

Who drives when you are together? Sometimes me, but mostly him. I don't think he's that good at parking my big car, BUT he hasn't banged and scratched any of our vehicles, so I try not to complain about his skills.

Who is more stubborn? We're both stubborn, I guess, but I think Tyler sticks to his stubborness more than me (which I guess proves that the real answer is that HE is more stubborn; I'm too tired/lazy to hold my ground.)

Who kissed who first? He kissed me FINALLY, but I sure kissed back!

Who asked out who first? Techinically HE asked me out first, but I pretty much threw myself at his feet by making him a plate of cookies and a cheesy note attached to a blown-up photo. I guess TECHNICALLY, our very first date (the Thanksgiving before) was due to his dad, so Bruce gets the credit on this one.

Who proposed? Tyler did. We had a very honest conversation (or two or three), so we knew we were going to get married, and had picked out the ring together. He took me to Sunset Park (where we'd gone a lot while we were dating to walk around the lake), but the Renaissance Fair was in full swing, so we ended up in a ball field.

WHo has more siblings? We're tied; his side has one more in-law than mine, though.

Who wears the pants in the family? We do better, in general, to be in the same pair of pants.
