My friend, Sarah, did this on her blog, and I thought it would be fun to try. They are questions about my marriage.
First, a little background. I met my husband, Nolan, on March 13, 1993. We noticed each other at a BYU Men's volleyball game. They were playing against Ball State. We sort of checked each other out across the fieldhouse. The friend I was with, Tami, had met the friend he was with the previous night at a BYU dance. They didn't talk to us at the game, but after the game, we saw each other again at a BYU dance. During the final dance of the night, they asked us to dance. I liked Nolan right away. He and his friend gave Tami and me a ride home, and Nolan said, "maybe I'll give you a call sometime." Perhaps his 'maybe' is the reason I couldn't remember his name the next day. I really liked him, but a name that's a little unusual--Nolan--was not easy to remember. Luckily, he did give me a call...
Here we are almost 15 years later. Happy Valentines Day, baby. I love you.
How long have you been together? Married for 13 and a half years
How long did you date? About 15 months
How old is he? 36
Who eats more? I think he does
Who is taller? Nolan is
Who sings better? He does. I'm awful.
Who is smarter? We're equally smart, just in different areas.
Who does the laundry? I do.
Who does the dishes? The dishwasher.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? He does.
Who pays the bills? I do.
Who mows the lawn? He does. I've done it three times in my whole life.
Who cooks dinner? I do, if you call that cooking because I'm awful at it. I actually need to give credit where credit is due--Betty Crocker, Campbell's, Old El Paso etc.
Who is more stubborn? I think I am. He's so easy going.
Who kissed who first? He kissed me first.
Who asked who out? I hinted to his friend that I had an extra ticket for a Men's Chorus concert, so Nolan called me about it. Technically, I asked him out first, but he called me first, so it's a tie.
Who said "I love you" first? He did.
Who proposed? He did. We were at a Salt Lake Buzz game, and he had the announcer ask me over the loudspeaker, and they put it on the scoreboard. It was so romantic. I loved it. I was completely surprised by it, but readily, happily, and enthusiastically said, "Of course!"
Who is more sensitive? Me. I cry easily at movies and almost anything.
Who has more siblings? Nolan has 6 & I have 1.
Who wears the pants in the relationship? We both wear pants. However, I do wear skirts on Sundays and he still wears pants. (Can you tell I hate this question?)
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
