One More Time

I am such a sucker. I was tagged for a bunch of memes and though I vowed not to do them anymore here I am again. *sigh*
But this is a really fun one. And since I don't have any memes about my dear hubby I thought I would do this one that Elaine at The Miss Elaine-ous Life tagged me for. Here it goes!

What is his name? Todd

Who eats more? He does. Most of the time. hehe

Who said, “I love you” first? He did. Sucker!

Who is taller? He is by like 6 inches.

Who drives most when you are together? He does because he's a REAL man. Or because I am busy jumping from the front of the minivan to the back to fetch the boys toys/sunglasses/blankets/animals/etc. that they either dropped or threw. After all, we both know I'm the better driver, right honey? ;)

Who’s more sensitive? That one probably goes to me although he is very sensitive too.

Who does the laundry? I do. Todd always tells me that he doesn't mind doing the laundry but that he doesn't like to fold it or put it away. HAHAHAHA!!!!

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do. I'm always right. heh heh

Who pays the bills? I do. You do remember that I used to be a banker, right?

Who cooks more? I cook and he grills. Truthfully he is a very good chef. Very good.

Who is more stubborn? We both are. It can be a problem at times.

Who is the first to admit they are wrong? He is. Because he is a smart, smart man.

Who has more siblings? I do. He has 2 and I have 5.

Who wears the pants? We both wear pants. Sometimes shorts. And once in a while if we are going out to dinner or something I'll wear a skirt. :)

What do you like to do together? Wouldn't you like to know! Dirties.

Who eats more sweets? ME! Unless it is cookies. He can eat more cookies than anyone I know.

Guilty Pleasures? Yes, please!

How did you meet? At a party. The complete story is here.

Who asked whom out first? He asked me out about 3 or 4 times before I finally said yes, cuz I was cool like that. See above.

Who kissed who first? Don't ya both kinda have to be there at the same time in order for a kiss to work? Hmm. Well, he probably leaned in first, if that is what you're asking.

Who proposed? He did. Very sweet and very romantic.

His best features & qualities? Oiy vey! So many. I love his strong jaw line. And his arms. Very nice. He is a very handsome man overall. He is super smart, super funny, super loyal, and super kind and compassionate. I'm a lucky lady to have stopped playing hard to get and let this guy catch me.

(This is us a few years ago at my best friend's wedding.)
Okay, enough with the memes. I might get to the other ones soon. Or, maybe not. We'll see.


What I would like y'all to do is go and check out these awesome posts.

The first one has been running through my mind for the past week. I just love it. It is such a wonderful reminder. Thank you, Lisa! Click on over there and check it out. Life With Our Little Ladies

This second one is great because I love a good rant. Especially when it is warranted. Not only that but Chrissy really "gets" it. I went from being really mad to having tears in my eyes. Smart lady. Love it. Tales From the Carpool Lane

The third one was written by Amy at The Brat Pack. She put the whole Favre/Packer debacle in layman's terms. It is entertaining and very funny, and I couldn't agree more. Well done!

The last one is from Nap Warden at The Chronicles of a SAHM because I am so into these Olympics. I am loving it. Well. And. Ahem. Just because, okay? Go check it out. :)

Thanks for making me laugh and for making me think, ladies!

Lisa said...

So I now have a reader, and really - how easy & great is that? I mean, really - thanks!

You are so sweet to mention that post. I'm glad you enjoyed it. If these kids of ours weren't so darned sweet, we wouldn't have such an easy time coming up with good stuff to write about, huh?

Claudious said...

Really enjoyed your answers to that thing, it's nice to get to know you better through things like that... though they do often seem form based.

Great blog references, thank you!

Nap Warden said...

Yeah...you are liking the pic of the Olympics on my blog;)

Krystyn said...

What a sweet post! You are a lucky lady!

Kathryn said...

I loved this meme, thanks for sharing!!!

Cyndi said...

Okay, you might as well remove your offical meme graveyard thingy. We are all on to you now. (I kid.)

Cute meme and way to give your husband some great blogtime.

Sandy C. said...

That was a fun meme :) You and hubby look gorgeous!

Thanks so much for those links. LOL! I knew you'd love the Amy's Packer post ;)

Indy said...

Fun to read. Thanks for doing this one. Hard to get to sometimes. Glad you did this one.

Is Todd gonna get upset about this one? :) After the other day, I think we're both hesitant a bit about posting about the menfolk.

Fire Hunt said...

That is a good meme:)

So fun to hear a bit more about Todd! I always love to hear the fun "everyday" details of life!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
