The Pilot and Me

My husband's cousin, Heidi had this cute hubby questionaire on her blog, and since I've run a blank lately on what to blog about, I decided it would be fun to fill out and post. Now you will all know about me and the pilot.

1. How long have you been together?
Almost 5 years (my memory of life before marriage is already fading... it's like it was a whole different world).

2. How long did you date?
Hmm... depends on who you ask. He would say we'd been dating for 4 months when he proposed, but it was actually only about 2 weeks (we have very different definitions of "dating"). I said no, and we dated for another 2 months before I said yes, and then we were engaged for about 3 months. So... I guess according to me we dated for almost 6 months, according to my husband 9 months.

3. Who said I love you first?
I'm pretty sure I did, but he claims he didn't hear me (I whispered it in his ear-guess I whispered too quiet).

4. Who sings better?
That's a toughy. He is better at making up lyrics and his own harmony, and he has a pretty good voice. I can sing parts by reading the music, and have a decent voice (as long as I'm not solo). I'd say it's about a tie.

5. Who is smarter?
Another toughy. He is definately smarter when it comes to anything mechanical and logical. But I am better at math, english, and putting the right clothes on the right kid (he's been putting size 3T shorts on our 16 month-old lately).

6. Who does the laundry?
Moslty me, but he's been doing a lot more since I started working part time

7. Who does the dishes?
Same answer, I've always done them, but he does them now too, since I started working.

8. Who pays the bills?
I do. Not my favorite job.

9. Who mows the lawn?
The landlord. But when we rented a house, he did it most of the time.

10. Who cooks dinner?
That would be me, except on very rare occasions.

11. Who drives when you're together?
Mostly him, but I do sometimes.

12. Who is more stubborn?
We are both very stubborn, and therefore butt heads a lot. But I am usually the first to say "I'm sorry" and I have to beg him to say it too.

13. Who kissed who first?
This one's kind of funny. He asked, "Can I kiss you?" Instead of responding verbally, I just leaned in and kissed him, but he didn't kiss me back. I guess he was too nervous. So I ended up kissing tightly closed, motionless lips. He'll never live that one down.

14. Who asked who out first?
He asked me. We went to see a double feature at the theater (Spider Man and Men in Black 2). We danced outside in the rain during the intermission.

15. Who proposed?
He did, but the better question would be how many times? Too many to count. Okay, in his defense, he only got down on one knee and actually said "Will you marry me?" once, to which I replied, "Can I think about that?" It was honestly the biggest shock of my life. I said no a few days later, and after that he just kept asking, "So, when are ya gonna marry me?" Obviously, I said yes after a while.

16. Who is more sensitive?
Me. Well, I show my feelings more anyway.

17. Who has more friends?
Friends? What are those? Just kidding. We each have a handful of good friends who we talk to about twice a year.

18. Who has more siblings?
He does, but only by one.

19. Who wears the pants in the family?
We both do, but his are bigger.

You are too funny! I never realized how much the Pilot hounded you to marry him. I remember telling him to give up, but I'm sure glad he didn't! You are an awesome sister-in-law ;)
