The Story of Us

I was tagged by Kat to do "The Meme of Us". Here are the answers for ours... I'm not going to tag anyone specific, but if you have a blog and you're married feel free to play along. It could be fun!

How long have you been together?
5 years, 3 weeks and 3 days.

How long did you date?
We still date! You should never stop dating. (But... if you mean the period before which we were engaged, that would be about 2.25 years roughly).

How old is he?
Steve is 26, he'll be 27 in July.

Who said 'I love you' first?
I don't remember exactly, but I think Steve (I can imagine I would have held off so I didn't scare him off!)

Who is taller?
Steve is by about 2 - 2.5 inches

Who is smarter?
We're both equally smart and have areas where one is stronger than the other.

Who does the laundry?
For the most part I do because that's how the division of labor falls.

Who does the dishes?
It's split - I load and wash, he empties and puts away.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
That'd be me.

Who pays the bills?
We're DINKs (Double Income No Kids) with one joint account, but Steve does all the budgeting and bill-paying. I hate it. :P

Who mows the lawn?
Our landlord does. Eventually when we have a house, it'll probably be Steve.

Who cooks dinner?
99% of the time I'm the one who cooks dinner because I'm the keeper of the menu. If Steve wants to cook dinner, he's more than welcome and he's been known to jump in if I'm occupied with something else on occasion.

Who is more stubborn?
We're both equally stubborn in different areas, I think. I can be more stubborn than him initially in a conflict though, I'll admit it openly (yep, even when I'm wrong... I'm working on it).

Who kissed who first?
He kissed me first. Kiss stealer. ;)

Who asked who out?
Uh.... You know, I don't remember. I think it was Steve's idea to go see that Harry Potter movie. By the time we were "official" we'd hung out so much that I don't know who was the perpetrator of the IHOP date the night we became an "us".

Who proposed?
Steve did on July 26, 2005 at Hampton State Beach. It was awesome, he had a whole little speech prepared and everything. :)

Who is more sensitive?
Oooo!!! Ooooo!!! Pick me!!!! I am, for sure. I'm also a crier. Go me. So I'm a stubborn sensitive crier. Someone can send Steve a sympathy card whenever they feel it's appropriate. :)

I really enjoyed reading this. It is so much fun to see how other couples me/ dated and to see who does what in the relationship.

Thank you for sharing :)
