All about us!

I'm interrupting the regularly scheduled update for a more lighthearted post, but before we get to that, there are a few housekeeping things to take care of: As you read from my last post all my widgets were deleted :( very sad, which means that all the blogs I had on my sidebar are gone... more sad... so if you would please, leave a comment so I can have you all in one place and can add the blog back to the side bar! It will help me remember :). Even if you weren't on there before, heck even if you're new, leave a comment and I'll add you up there! It's much easier to get to the blogs to read them when they're, ya know... linked. Muchas Gracias!!

I found this on Just a Girlfriend is Just Fine With Me and thought it was super cute, so here's a fun little survey to learn a little more about us!

What are your middle names?
Well... I try and keep names on here non-existent or make believe so we'll do initials. My middle name starts with a J (See where the KJ comes from?) and Sgt's middle name starts with a P!

How long have you been together?
We've been something for a little over two years :)

Who asked whom out?
He asked me out. First he asked me to meet him for coffee but I couldn't, then he asked me if he could come down and take me on a date. The rest, as they say, is history!

How old are each of you?
Early twenties. Although Sgt. is 4 years older than me... a fact that is fun to play with sometimes ;). Don't worry honey, you're not old... you won't be old for a very very long time.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
mm... mine I suppose, although we don't see many of our siblings often overall. Sgt's siblings both live in different states than him, and mine live a few hours away. In a couple weeks we'll be far from them all.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
I suppose the thing that challenged us most as a couple is how we fight... our styles are almost polar so it's taken a lot for us to adjust to the other persons style... although I will say this, he has done WONDERFUL at this, I have a problem with holding stuff in to avoid an argument but he's so good at picking up on when I'm upset and has figured out how to get me to talk about it without making me feel forced. I wouldn't say I've done nearly as well as he has in that department, but I'm hoping I've made some progress!

Did you go to the same school?
We didn't. Grew up in different states!

Who is smarter?
We are both smart in different ways. Both of us can offer something to the table which is wonderful.

Who is the most sensitive?
*raises hand* that would be me.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?

We don't eat out a whole lot because we both love to cook and enjoy eating at home, even when we're visiting family. But we are fans of a wing joint in Tennessee called Toots! Although, we've ordered to go from there more than we go in to sit down :).

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Vermont over Christmas time. We're hoping to go on a fun vacation together sometime soon (and I say soon as in the next year) though... which reminds me.. I really need to get my passport. I know, I know... I'm the only person in the world over the age of 18 without a passport.

Who has the worst temper?
He does. Although he's not one to flip out over little things, but when he gets mad... he gets reallllly mad.

Who does the cooking?
We both do :). He's an amazing cook and I'm not bad, if I do say so myself! It's a fun way for us to spend time together and do something nice for each other.

Who is the neat-freak?
Depends on who you ask. If you ask Me, I'd say we're on a pretty even field. If you ask Sgt. he will tell you that I am definitely the neat-freak and then he will tell you how I iron sheets. We both like to keep things picked up, we both hate leaving dishes in the sink overnight, we both don't like clutter (even though we're pack rats...) so we tend to keep things clean. Neither of us is a spaz about it though.

Who is more stubborn?
That would be him. (I love you!)

Who hogs the bed?
Neither of us. We like to sleep close together for the most part, there have been a few times I've woken up in the middle of the night and we're sleeping really far apart but neither of us takes up a whole lot of space and I never feel like I don't have enough room. The blankets however... are a different story (remember how I said I woke up and we were far apart?)

Who wakes up earlier?
On a daily basis, he does, but only because he has to. I am the morning person of the two of us. I can hop out of bed first alarm. He is a 4X snoozer. He sleeps like a rock.

Where was your first date?

Bonzai sushi and the El Diablo tattoo parlor. :)

Who is more jealous?

Who eats more?

Sgt. will eat more in one sitting than me, I have the classic "eyes-bigger-than-stomach" illness, but I'm convinced I snack more throughout the day than he does. And he eats a fairly small breakfast and lunch.

Who does the laundry?
We both do laundry since we both live on our own, but when we're together I try and keep up with the laundry. He doesn't mind doing it, I just tend to do it while cleaning.

Who’s better with the computer?

Him. Him. Him. I'm still not sure how many rams are enough and what is a good amount of gigabytes... if they're even still called that. I'm amazed I can even turn one on and use it.

Who drives when you are together?
He does usually. On road trips in MY car, we take turns. On road trips in HIS car... (which in fairness we've only done twice) he drives and around town he drives. Really, it's a good thing, he's a much safer driver than I am lol.



Oh yes, I am also a sufferer of "eyes bigger than stomach". So painful, so miserable, so disappointing :)


Love how spring like the new blog look is!

The Mrs.

I love your new look! Our fighting styles are polar opposites too and it has caused a few blow ups but take my word over the years (my goodness am I really old enough to be throwing that around) you'll find your middle ground. Or one of you just caves. I'm cool with that! : )

oh and anytime you want the boys just let me know where to send them... I think fedex does kids.


Good luck with your move. Ive just finished doing one and have decided next time we sell everything with the house and start fresh... and depending on how the kids behave they might get to come to. :)


Awww, I know exactly where your first date was!!! As soon as I read it, I pictured it! Right between the Guadalupe Kerby Lane and the 7-11, right?? Yay, Austin!


A tatoo parlor for your first date? Intriguing. I think you need to share that story.
