Bloggy friends are fabulous

My bloggy friend Imbeingheldhostage from In the Gutter gave me this wonderful award. Isn't she sweet? You should read her blog. It plays lovely music. Plus she's funny. And we are living surprisingly similar lives considering she is an army wife in England and I am a pastor's wife here.

She also tagged me.

And because I think she is so darn swell I will do it.

This is a meme all about me and my dear husband Douglas.

How long have you been together?

We met in 1997 at Bible School. We have been married for nine years this July.

How long did you date?
We dated for about a year and a half.

How old is he?
He turns 34 on May 28 this year.

Who said ‘I love you’ first?

I have no idea. Really. I can't remember.

Who is taller?
He's six foot one and I'm 5'7 3/4".

Who is smarter?
Me. Of course.

Who does the laundry?
Me. Of course.

Who does the dishes?
the dishwasher.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
We switch sides fairly regularly. I don't know why.

Who pays the bills?
Me. Of course. He would forget to pay them.

Who mows the lawn?
He does. I don't mow lawns. Although I DID mow the lawn as a teenager when I lived with my mom.

Who cooks dinner?
He does. Most of the time anyway. He is a wonderful chef.

Who is more stubborn?
Owen. Aiden. and Olivia. Neither of us can even remotely compare to our children.

Who kissed who first?
He kissed me. THAT I remember.

Who asked who out?
I asked him out first. Sort of. I had a gift certificate to a restaurant that I had won and I gave it to him with a note in his mail box saying "when are you going to ask me to go?". But he asked me to "go out" with him (or go steady or whatever it is you call officially dating).

Who proposed?
He says that I proposed to him. I disagree. He actually got down on one knee though and gave a very lovely proposal in the freezing cold Edmonton winter.

Who is more sensitive?
Definitely me.

I think I will tag Amanda M., Amanda D., Amanda F. just because I like that they are all named Amanda. Plus I would like my non-blogging friends Becky and Cecile to answer this in the comments in order to prove to me that they actually read my blog. Aren't I sneaky?


Love it. Thanks for being a good sport!
