The MeMe of Us (shouldn’t it be called the UsUs then?)

How long have you been together?
2 years and 3 months and one week to the day? Married for 1 year and 3 month.

How long did you date?
Hmm can we call that dating? About one and a half month.

How old is he?
He is 11months and one day younger than me. Which means we will both be 31 years old for exactly 31 days until I hit the dreaded 32!

Who said ‘I love you’ first?
That would have been me!

Who is taller?
He is, which makes him the first guy that was way taller than me.

Who is smarter?
I think we’re equally smart and we each have our own area of expertise.

Who does the laundry?

I do because nobody touches our laundry except me. Yes I am a controll freak.

Who does the dishes?
Mostly me but then again I am a control freak like that. The dishwasher’s got to be stacked my way.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
If we’re laying down -he does.

Who pays the bills?
We are DINKs Double Income No Kids and have a joint checking account as well as an account each.

Who mows the lawn?
Thanks to the joys of apartment living we have somebody who does it for us.

Who cooks dinner?
While I cook most of our dinners my husband makes THE best sandwiches in the world. In fact I would kill for one right now.

Who is more stubborn?
That depends. I don’t think this is a win-win question.

Who kissed who first?
He kissed me first after sweetly asking my permission. I still have very vivid memories of that very first kiss.

Who asked who out?
He asked me out for a cup of coffee. I only later learned that he doesn’t even drink coffee. Yep he’s smart.

Who proposed?
The hubby did after we had talked about it so much I thought it wasn’t even going to be a surprise anymore but he managed to propose to me in a lovely pub in a remote corner of Ireland. It was hugely romantic and two days before my 30th birthday :)

Who is more sensitive?
Yep that’d be me. Though he can be sensitive in some regards too.

Now I am curious about your MeMe or UsUs or whatever you prefer to call it. Let me hear how, when and why you met. I tag Danielle, Melisa, Corey~living and loving, Pocklock, Melissa and Uncommon Blonde.

A proposal in a remote pub in Ireland sounds absolutely perfect! You should blog about that one day.

Melissa said...

I totally feel you on the laundry and the dishwasher. When I do ask him to do the dishes I end up getting so frustrated that I re-do it. When he does it we get approximately 1.2 meals worth of dishes into our washer - when I do it we get 5 meals. Clearly he just doesn't get it. I'm glad I'm not alone.
