A Valentine Meme

Antique Valentine
Before I answer the meme, I've got to tell you what I spent all last evening doing, in preparation for Valentine's Day. I baked. For a Valentine's supper my men want sloppy joes on homemade buns. So, I made buns. Mitchell wanted banana chocolate chip muffins for his Valentine breakfast. So I made him banana chocolate chip muffins. Ty and Wayne wanted a banana cake. So, I made them a banana cake. And this morning they'll all awaken to some Valentine treats and sweets for later in the day. I love showing love to my Valentines. They are so sweet! And isn't there a saying that goes something like, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." So true in this household!

Now, for the meme. I got this from Stacey, who got it from Martie.


How long have you been together?
We met for the first time on April 18, 1996.

How long did you date?
Well, we started dating about two months after we met; we were engaged two months after that; and we were married nine months after that (way too long of a wait!). So, from the time we met for the first time until we married was exactly 13 months less a day.

How old is he?
He is 39.

Who eats more?
It depends what we're eating. Sometimes him, sometimes me.

Who said "I love you" first?
I can't say for sure (how bad is that?!) but I'm pretty sure it was him.

Who is taller?
I am. He's 5 ft. 7. I'm 5 ft. 8 1/2. The funny part about that is I vowed that I would never marry someone shorter than me. But, it doesn't bother me. And it doesn't bother him. In church when I wear heels (which is often) I always feel like I'm towering over him and think how funny we must look together.

Who is smarter?
I had a higher average in high school. But that's just because he didn't apply himself. His I.Q. is higher than mine, but we both have our areas of strength. We're both smart. Ha! Ha!

Who does the laundry?
Always me. And the washing machine and dryer.

Who does the dishes?
Always me. And the dishwasher.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
I do. (That is if you are lying down, looking from the head of the bed. If you were looking from the bed at the foot end, it's him. I hope this makes sense.)

Who pays the bills?
I pay them. However, he makes more money. So, in a way, he pays them.

Who mows the lawn?
He does.

Who cooks dinner?
Me, of course.

Who is more stubborn?
We both are.

Who kissed who first?
We both did. It's kind of a "together" thing.

Who asked who out?
He did. Our first official date was to the drive-in movie theater. We watched
Twister and Mission: Impossible!

Who proposed?
He did.

Who is more sensitive?
I am.

Who has more friends?
Again, me. I thrive on friendships. He's happy to just have one or two friends that he sees occasionally throughout the year.

Who has more siblings?
He has 10 brothers and sisters. I have 5.
