Couples Quiz

I got tagged for the couples quiz. Thanks to my sister, Lara, you're all going to have to bear through a quiz about none other than ME!


How long have you and your significant other been together?
We have been married for 5 years in May! I still can't help but think about an experience 4 years ago when Jared went with me to a "girl's night out" at a friend's house (there were boys there too, watching sports in the other room). Anyways, the friend made a comment about how we were still newlyweds, and in several years we'll want breaks from one another. My response was probably a bit too sarcastic, as I noted that in several years, WE'LL still like each other. Thankfully, I am happy to say that we love being with each other all the time! And thank goodness for that...it is a huge blessing, since we are together 24-7! :-)

Who eats more?
It's about even...which is sad, considering he is a good FOOT taller than me! Truthfully, he eats more than me when we're away from home, but we eat pretty similarly portioned meals at home!

Who said "I love you" first?
Jared says, "I'm pretty sure I did, didn't I?" I said, "Hmmm...I don't remember..." I guess it all happened so quickly, perhaps we said it at the same time?! No, probably Jared...

Who is taller?
"Who isn't taller than me?" (Well said, Lara)

Who sings better?
Me, although you'd be surprised to know that Jared breaks into song on his own...

Who is smarter?
We're both smart in different ways. Jared's the logical planner, and I'm the logical... hmmm... something else? In fact, we're each so "logical," that our logic doesn't always match, and then there's a nice battle. No one ever wins, either :-) Luckily, Jared has a better memory than me, because I claim that the babies sucked every last inch of memory out of me (although Jared would argue I didn't have much of a memory to start...it is VERY selective)!

Who does the laundry?
Jared. Whew! :-)

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
We actually switch sides every 6 months, when we move to and from Alaska. In fact, we've switched several times since we've been in Washington this winter. Before Maiya was born, Jared slept closest to the door (so that'd HE'D have to deal with Ella getting out of bed, since she was making a habit of sneaking out of her room in the middle of the night!). Now I sleep closer to the door, so I can get up and get Maiya easier. That doesn't mean that I usually wake up before him, though...I seem to no longer hear babies cries...so he has to nudge me...

Who pays the bills?
Jared pays all of the credit-card-type bills, and rents (more than we should have, with the biz included). I pay all of the business bills (vendors, etc). Neither one of us would want each other's jobs!

Who mows the lawn?
Hallelujah-we don't have a lawn! Well, not hallelujah that we DON'T have a lawn...just that we don't have to MOW one!

Who cooks dinner?
Me, me, me, me...unless you want breakfast burritos. Jared's very helpful in the kitchen, though!

Who is more stubborn?
Oh gee...that's a tough one. Let's just say we have each met our match!

Who is the first to admit when they're wrong?
We are both never wrong (see previous question).

Whose parents do you see the most?
Jared's parents are 2 hours away. :-) Mine are 2 days away! :-(

Who kissed who first?
Jared! The poor guy, I teased him... Now just ask who held each other's hand first...and there's a debate that will never end...

Who proposed?
Jared! He was so sweet and took me to a memorable/significant location. I, on the other hand, was a complete snot, and told him I wouldn't get out of the car, because I didn't have hiking shoes on :-) Poor guy, why did he have to end up with a feisty one like me?

Who is more sensitive?
Jared, Jared, Jared, Jared, Jared!

Who has more friends?
Me. But it's not about quantity...it's all about quality! Okay, so truthfully I have real quality friends... ;-)

Who has more siblings?
Jared has 3. I have 4...love 'em all!

Who wears the pants?
Hmmm...maybe you should refer back to the stubbornness question. I guess you should say that we are pretty equal "business partners" in life. I guess it bleeds over from our business...

So, I'm supposed to tag some more people, but I can't remember who has already done this quiz...hmm...here goes:

Morgan
Yasmine
Donald & Lisa
Cara

Wow, I've never seen most of those pictures...they are beautiful! Thanks for including them! And you're right, they do get bigger when you click on them. Why don't mine? And by the way, also, I HATED "Bride and Prejudice." How could you like that movie?

Thanks for the tag Alisa. I'll work on that.

Let me just say that your wedding pictures are GORGEOUS!!! I love the ones with you two in the orchard. Those should be on display in an art gallery somewhere!

You switch sides of the bed every 6 months?? That is soooooo interesting. We have never switched sides......I am not sure if I could sleep on his side....I am very set in my ways.

Different topic: Ella was SO cute in nursery today. She and Tessa were right next to eachother the hold time...holding hands, pushing their dolls in their strollers, coloring together. She is such a beautiful and sweet child. We enjoy having her in our class each Sunday!
