Getting to know...

Thank you to Amanda over at Trying My Best to be a Proverbs 31 Woman. A little get to know you marriage questionnaire for an otherwise boring (at least for me!) Thursday. Thanks Amanda!

How long have you been married?

2 years, a few days ago!

Is this your first marriage?

Yes! First and last!

Is it how you imagined it would be?

So much better. It’s like having a sleep over with your best friend every day.

What would you change?

Nothing so far. We are still figuring out a lot of things as I am sure we will continue to do for the rest of our lives. What fun would it be if we didn’t make a few mistakes along the way?

Are you married to your soulmate?

I truly believe so. I wouldn’t have guessed it while we were in high school but I truly believe J was the mad made especially for me.

What do you argue about the most?

Hmm… chores, money, video games, me reading… We bicker =)

What do you see eye to eye on the most?

The basics that make us who we are. Religion, values, major goals.

Where did you meet your spouse?

High school.

Where was your first date?

I can’t really remember! I know that he would. I think we went our for ice cream though?

Where were you when you became engaged?

It may be cheesy or weird or stupid to others, but he proposed to me while I was at work (Dutch Bros). He came thru the drive thru and brought me flowers. I asked him to pull forward so I could give him a hug, and he rolled up his window and it had the words “Will you marry me” written on it. He was sitting behind it with the ring box open and a silly grin on his face. So perfect for us! His brother and sister in law were across the street with binoculars watching the whole thing!

Did you live together before Marriage?

Sort of, not really. We bought a house about 6 months before we got married. He still lived with his parents while I lived in our house. He was there a lot though. But didn’t really move in until after we were married.

What was your wedding song?

The way I am, by Ingrid Michaelson.

Who was in your wedding party?

My sister-in-law was my matron of honor (who had my niece 3 days later! SUPERWOMAN!), my two best friends from high school, and my best friend from after high school. J had his brother, and three best friends from forever ago.

Do you get along with the in-laws?

Yes. I am thankful to have a wonderful relationship with my in-laws. J would say the same thing. We are blessed!

Whats your view on Children?
?? We want them. They are germ bags! =) I mean that in the nicest way possible. All you moms out there know it’s true!

Does your spouse feel the same way?

He is going to be an amazing dad. He is so good with kids and can’t wait for us to have some!

Are you a 2 peas in a pod or opposites attract couple?

We started out as opposites attract. I would now say we are closer to 2 peas in a pod. We have both grown closer to each other without forcing the other to conform to their beliefs. And we love to do everything together!

Do you go out without your spouse?

Yep, sure do. I love my girls nights!

How long are you away from your spouse before you start to miss him/her?

I am getting more used to it. But I miss him before he is even gone.

Have you ever compared your spouse to someone you have dated in the past?

I think it’s natural to compare people, but I have NEVER wished that my hubs was more like someone I dated in the past. A fictional character, maybe….But those men are made up anyway.

Do you trust your Spouse?


Does your Spouse trust you?


How well do you know your spouse’s favorites?

Pretty well, I suppose!

How well does your spouse know your favorites?

Sometimes better than I know myself!

Do you get along with your spouse’s friends?

Pretty darn well. I can’t think of anyone of his friends that I don’t like.

Does your spouse get along with your friends?

As good as can be expected. He loves them all like sisters, but will clear out of the room when we get to girl talking. =)

Did you go on a honeymoon?

Yes. Maui. My favorite place in the whole world.

Do you watch the same TV shows?

For the most part. There are some shows that I like that he could do without, but we mostly watch the same things.

Can you agree on Pizza toppings?

Yep. We agree that we pretty much love pizza!!!!

Who takes out the trash?

He should! But sometimes I do it too…

Who does laundry?

He refuses to wash my clothes…. And I appreciate that!! I will not wash his clothes if they are not in the hamper. I may be washing his clothes, but I am not his maid!!

Who is the first one to wake up in the morning?

He is. And he is always happy! Me…not so much.

Do you have any traditions?

Friday night dates on the couch…. Ah-mazing. We are still creating our own.

Is there anyone in your spouse’s family that you can’t stand?

Nope. Love them all. Sometimes there are a few that can get on my nerves, but that’s any family. Or friend for that matter!

Anyone in your spouse’s family you adore?

Love them all!!! And he loves mine. We have it good!!!

Do you know your spouse’s passwords/pins?

Yep. And if he doesn’t know mine than it’s because he hasn’t memorized it. Or he has his own card. Everything we have is joint. I prefer it that way.

Does your spouse know your social security number?

Hmmm…. He should!!!

Do you ever nag your spouse?

Yep. Sure do. But boy am I wishing I spend more time cuddling on the couch with him than nagging him to help me clean. Hind sight is 20/20. I sure do miss our cuddles on the couch right about now!

Do you admit wrong doing?
Yep. Hard as it is.
Does your spouse?

Yep. And I am sure it is hard for him as well! It’s always hard to eat some humble pie. =)
