Late Valentine's Tag

My dear friend Chelsey tagged me to answer some questions pertaining to Valentine's Day. Here you go:
How long have you been together? We have been married for 4 ½ years How long did you date? We met in May of 2001 and dated up until we got married in August of 2003. Two of those years we had the long distance relationship going on because I was living in Provo and Brett was in Brigham. It was tough, but definitely worth it!

How old is he? He just turned 26 this month. Don’t ask him how old he is because he hates getting older.
Who eats more? Before this pregnancy I would have said Brett does, but now I think we probably eat about the same (at least my growing waist size tells me this).

Who said I LOVE YOU first? Brett did and I didn’t hear him correctly. He said, “I really think I love you” and my response was, “Thanks, I think about you a lot too”. He got really quiet and that’s when I realized I didn’t hear him correctly and then it clicked in my head what he really said. By then the moment was over. It took some time before he dared say it again, but when he did, I let him know the feeling was mutual.

Who is taller? Brett by a couple of inches
Who sings better? We don’t sing. I think we are equally bad singers.

Who is smarter? I would say I am smarter when it comes to subject knowledge and fourth grade curriculum, but Brett is realistically smarter (if that makes any sense at all).

Who does the laundry? I do the laundry unless I’ve forgotten to wash Brett’s carharts then he throws in a load every now and then. He did fold my mountain of clean clothes the other day for Valentine’s Day. I loved it!

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Brett does
Who pays the bills? We do it together and that’s the way I prefer it.

Who mows the lawn? Unfortunately we don’t have a lawn yet but if we did Brett tells me I will be in charge of mowing the lawn. I politely informed him that I maintain and clean the inside of the house and he is to take care of the outside. Maybe that is why I don’t have a lawn yet…

Who cooks dinner? I don’t know if you can call it “cooking” but it is me that gets the family fed. Brett loves to barbeque and make breakfasts.

Who has more siblings? We both have 3 other siblings.
Who drives when you are together? It is usually Brett but every now and then I drive.

Who is the first to admit they are wrong? Me. I have a guilty conscience.

Who is more Stubborn? I want to say it’s Brett, but I know it’s really me. Especially when I’m pregnant….sorry babe.

Who kissed who first? Once again I want to say Brett, but I was the one who kissed him first. He just wasn’t catching all of my hints so I had to take the bull by the horns and lay one on him. I think he was pleasantly surprised.

Who Proposed? Brett did (if you call it a proposal). Not much thought or effort went into the moment.

Who is more sensitive? That would be me. I cry over everything (especially when I’m pregnant). Who wears the pants in the family? I think we take turns wearing the pants. Sometimes he wears them, sometimes I wear them, and then there are times we are both trying to wear them at the same time. It can get pretty frustrating.
My husband is an amazing man. I want to tell Brett how much I love you and I appreciate everything you do for us.

HaPpY LaTe VaLeNtInEs EVERYONE!
