About the Couple

I suppose I've never really done any "about us" or "my childhood" or anything kind of posts on here. I probably should...I've been on here a year and a half, it's probably time! But it's always awkward starting on a post like that...but I saw this little survey on G.I. Joe's Wife today, and it was pretty much perfect for an "about us" post!



1. What are your middle names?
Anne and Grant. Anyone want to guess what our son will be called??

2. How long have you been together?
A year and a half.

3. How long did you know each other before you started dating?
9 Years. Yes, we were a little dense.

4. Who asked who out?
He asked me out, technically, I suppose. But B isn't exactly a forward kind of person...so really I got a text message that said "hey, you want to go to dinner and a movie? I'll pay" and a relationship was born.

5. How old are each of you?
We're both 20-somethings, and only a few months apart.

6. Did you go to the same school?
We graduated high school together and went to middle school together, but did not go to the same college.

7. Are you from the same home town?
Yes. About 10 minutes from each other.

8. Who is the smartest?
It very much depends on the subject!

9. Who majored in what?
I'm majoring in Secondary English Education, he's in Criminal Justice and AF ROTC. For two more months...and then he's done!

10. Who is the most sensitive?
Definitely me.

11. Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Since we've been together, about five hours. We haven't done any big trips!

12. Who has the worst temper?
I do. He's usually very calm about things. Very. But the rolls are kind of switched when we fight...he wants to argue it out and I want to chill for a couple hours before discussing it with a cool head.

13. How many children do you want?
3. 2 biological, 1 adopted.

14. Who does the cooking?
No one. Seriously.

15. Who is more social?
I usually talk more in social situations, but B enjoys being with large social groups more than I do. Toss up, I guess!

16. Who is the neat freak?
Neither one of us. But, just for the record, we are not slobs either! ha!

17. Who is the most stubborn?
Me.

18. Who wakes up earlier?
When we have too, I'm usually up earlier. But when we don't, neither one of us gets up early.

19. Where was your first date?
I don't even remember. B would know. He's fabulous about knowing that kind of stuff.

20. Who has the bigger family?
We have equally huge families. He's got 8 aunts and uncles, I have 7 with my two parents, and with the steps included I have an additional 7.

21. Do you get flowers often?
Not weekly or anything, but I'd say often is a good word.

22. How do you spend the holidays?
We try to split our time as evenly as possible between families. Usually, my family goes out of town to other family on Thanksgiving, but I typically have to work so we go to his family. Christmas is like two straight days of "okay we have to run" to get to everyone!

23. Who is more jealous?
Probably me. But it's not usually vocalized.

24. How long did it take to get serious?
Not long at all. On our second date, we started talking about kids. I know that sounds crazy to you guys, but we had known each other for 9 years already and had been really good friends for the latter 5 years, so it happened really quickly for us.

25. Who eats more?
At meals, I eat more. But B snacks constantly so it evens out.

26. What do you do for a living?
I'm a full-time student and I work retail part-time.

27. Who does the laundry?
Me. But B can iron. So that's a plus.

28. Who's better with the computer?
Neither one of us is really good with computers, to be honest. But I am more easily frustrated with them than B is.

29. Who drives when you are together?
B.

30. What is your song?
We don't have one yet, but at the moment we plan on dancing to "My Best Friend" by Tim McGraw at the wedding!
