experience number three

Sorry if anyone has gotten bored hearing about my past lately, 
but I promise this will be the last experience I'll write about for awhile. 
I was going to write one more, buuut, I myself am getting tired of writing about the past.
So, last but not least...Marriage!
Yep, marriage is one of those life changing experiences.
Well, I've only been married for 9 and a half months, so clearly I'm no pro, 
but I like to think I'm doing pretty good so far.
Instead of writing about my marriage though, I decided to fill out this fun little couples quiz that I've seen on a few people's blogs lately.

How long have you been together?
We've been together for a year and a half and have been married for 9 months

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Hmm..about a week I think. 

Who asked who out?
I invited myself over to make dinner for him after only our second meeting...does that count?

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Neither. Both Virginia and Georgia are pretty far from Hawaii.

What about pets?
This guy lives in our shower occasionally. Geckos are all over the place here.  
But no real pets. Yet.

Did you go to the same school?
Yep! We're both in school right now actually.

Who is the most sensitive?
Believe it or not, this one is all the husband. 

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Subway. Trust me, there's no place to eat in my town.
Subway is considered "going fancy."

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
We spent 2 weeks in India the second month of our marriage. Read more about it here

Who has the craziest exes?
My husband.  *sigh* One reason I'm grateful to live far far away from everyone...

Who has the worst temper?
Neither of us really have too much of a temper actually.

Who does the cooking?
That would be yours truly. The hubby makes a good quesadilla though

Who is more social?
Depends on the day. He always wants to be social when I don't, and vice versa.

Who is the neat freak?
Mostly me. I'm really good about picking things up around the house...he's good at dishes. We complement each other pretty well.

Who is the most stubborn?
Ah, I gotta say me again. It's not my best quality...

Who hogs the bed?
Hmm, I'm starting to see a trend in these guessed it! What can I say, I just like to have a lot of covers...and room apparently. He secretly loves it. 

Who wakes up earlier?
99% of the time, it's my husband.  He hates waking up after me, because I'm one of those crazies who has to set 5 alarms at 5 minute intervals. It drives him crazy. Understandably so of course.

Where was your first date?
Ours was pretty simple, we watched a movie at his house. 

Who has the bigger family?
Our immediate families are close to the same. He's got two siblings and I've got one. We both have pretty big extended families, but his is concentrated within an hour radius.  I'm talking like 40 family members, all living that close. It's a bit of a foreign concept to me still.

Do you get flowers often?
Not really. (hint hint to the husband)

How long did it take to get serious?
Depends on which of us you ask. :)  Him? About 2 weeks. Me? A little longer than that.
But really, we decided to get married after three months of dating and were engaged the month after that.

Who eats more?
Definitely the husband. He also eats twice as fast.

Who sings better?
I'm sorry to say we both struggle in the vocal department. 

Who does the laundry?
We actually both do it together.

Who’s better with the computer?
Me! Which is sad, cause I struggle.

Who drives when you are together?
 Beau almost always drives.

Who picks where you go to dinner?
We usually switch off, or just choose together.

Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong?
Definitely Beau. There is where my bad habit of being stubborn comes in.

Who wears the pants in the relationship?
I just asked my husband this question and his response: "I think that's obvious. I don't want pants. I like to be free." 
He's cute. 

Who eats more sweets?
Maybe me? Beau always has a specific sweet craving though...cookies.
I definitely enjoy baking sweets though.

Anyhow, that is us! 
Happy Friday everyone!

I had so much fun reading these! I answered them for myself and my boyfriend in my mind and it was cool to see the similarities!

This is adorable! You two are such an interesting couple. How amazing that you traveled to India together. I am going to read that post next :)

I am also a person who sets a million alarms. On schooldays when I have to get up at 6, I will set an alarm for 4am because it makes me feel better. It's like, "See? At least you don't have to get up at 4!"

Also, that cookie dough looks delicious. I love homemade chocolate chip cookies!

AW I like this! You guys are soooo cute! :)
I think it's nice when people compliment the areas that the other one isn't as strong in. PS your alarm schedule?? That would get someone to wake up in the morning!

What a cute post - I loved reading about you and your husband. Oh my gosh, I'm sending the same hint, hint to my boyfriend- he just doesn't get why girls like flowers! And I am definitely the one saying I'm wrong first - if you ask Jake, he's never wrong! haha. Thanks for sharing this! :)
