In Honor Of Our Anniversary.........

A while back Nicole over at That's Life did  this little poll on her blog.  Since The Man and I are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary tomorrow I thought I'd do it too, so here goes!

♥ How long have you been together?

We will celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary on March 30; we've been together since January 30 of the same year..........so we've been together for 15 years and 2 months!  hehe

♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating?

Ummm, well we knew each other for about 6 months, but we were both dating other people during that time.

♥ How old are each of you?

He will be 38 in July of this year, and I turned 34 in January of this year.

♥ Whose siblings do/ did you see the most?

I have one sister and he has 5 siblings (step, full, and half).  I'd say we see my sister more, even though it isn't all that often, we for sure see her more than his siblings.

♥ Do you have any children together?

We have our beautiful Youngun who we love very much!

♥ What about pets?

We have three dogs in the house, as well as a barn cat, a horse, two G.O.S. hogs, and three goats.....right now..........oh yeah and a betta fish and some sea monkeys!

♥ Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?

Hmm, nothing really.  We are a force, a solid wall against any and all opposition.  We are a pretty darned formidable team!  When we first got married, the first year, that was a bit rough.  But we really truly are joined as one.  If he has a problem it is my problem and vice versa.  We don't let ANYTHING or ANYONE come between us as a couple, so I think that keeps things from stressing our "couple-hood".

♥ Did you go to the same school?

No, we didn't even live in the same county.

♥ Are you from the same home town?

Again, nope.

♥ Who is the most sensitive?

That would be me, although he can be a big ole softy at times!

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple?

We like to go to this little hole in the wall diner, The Sunset a coupla towns over.  Great service, good food, super cheap and we can go there after working outside all day without a shower first! ;0)

♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?

Myrtle Beach South Carolina

♥ Who has the worst temper?

Hmmm, well mine burns hot and fast, and shows up lots more than his does, but when he does finally let loose, buildings have been known to explode.............I'm just sayin'

♥ Who does the cooking?

That would be me........

♥ Who is more social?

Neither of us.  We don't really "do" people..........LOL!

♥ Who is the neat-freak?

That would be him, but we both like to keep things neat.  I like things neat and orderly, and a mess makes me nervous, but he has a problem.........he's a stacker.  When we first got married, when it was close to time for him to get home from work, I'd lay the phone book down on the floor and without missing a beat, as he came in the door he'd stoop down to pick it up!  Papers on the desk or counter?  They have to be perfectly stacked for him! 

 ♥ Who is the more stubborn?

I'd say we are both pretty stubborn, but since I'm the Goodwife, he has final say on everything.  If we are doing a project he will listen to my ideas and opinions and oftentimes we do things my way, but if he KNOWS how he wants to do it, nothing will sway him and I respect that!

♥ Who hogs the bed?

I prefer to say that I'm a cuddler and leave it at that!

♥ Who wakes up earlier?

I do.  I'm an early bird.  Of course that's only relevant on weekends cuz we get up before the crickets go to bed during the week.

♥ Where was your first date?

Steak n Shake........he picked me up in his horrendous car, we got a flat tire, got it fixed, went to eat, went back to his house and I never left!  About a week later, he asked me to marry him in a Wendy's parking lot in said car while the song "I Hate Everything About You" was playing on the radio. 

♥ Who has the bigger family?

Sibling wise, he does, but we both have pretty good sized extended families.

♥ Do you get flowers often?

Twice in 15 years, I don't need flowers......

♥ How do you spend the holidays?

Christmas and Thanksgiving with family, the others..... simply together!

♥ How long did it take to get serious?

Um, see the above questions.......it took about 5 minutes.  Sometimes you just know you've found "the one".

♥ Who does/ did the laundry?

I'm a homemaker so I do most of the house stuff, although when he's on vacation, or weekends when we are both very busy 'round our homestead, he has no problem pitching in and helping me out.

K, so that's that!  Anything I didn't tell you you'd like to know?  Just ask.......my life is an open book.  As disturbing as that may be.................

God Bless..............
