couples questions

I stole this from facebook so, if you've already seen it too bad! I figured I'd post it on my blog for those non-facebookers and the sad fact I have pitifully neglected my blog. I'm not going to tag anybody specifically, but I'd love to see your response if you feel like it.

This is kind of like the 25 things - except there are pre-decided questions and it's about you and your spouse, not just you.

♥ What are your middle names?
Joan, and Robert

♥ How long have you been together?
Married for seven years in November.

♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating?
over a year

♥ Who asked who out?
Austin asked me, despite a misunderstanding that he thought I just wanted to be friends.

♥ How old are each of you?
Both 29.

♥ Whose siblings do/ did you see the most?
Depends on where we/they live. We usually see whoever lives closest most. Usually mine.

♥ Do you have any children together?
Three. Sohvi is 5, Max will be 3 this month, and Lucy is almost 9 months old.

♥ What about pets?
Simon the turtle, and Mossimo the cat.

♥ Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Austin works lots, and has a pretty unpredictable schedule.

♥ Did you go to the same school?
Nope. not even close.

♥ Are you from the same home town?

♥ Who is the smartest?
Hah, isn't that a loaded question! It depends on the subject. We even each other out most of the time. Like I'm smarter in science, he's smarter with history. Then we're both good in english (though he is better with grammar and rules and such), and both suck at math (but I am better than he is). Artistically I'm visual, he's musical.

♥ Who is the most sensitive?
Depends. He cried when we got married (tears of joy), I didn't. (hey I was happy too, I just don't cry in front of people!) But I will cry more in movies... This is totally subjective though, neither one of us is very weepy.

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Johnny Carino's.

♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple
..not very far. We've done the back and forth from Portland to Utah and Idaho too many times to count. ..and I don't think we've gone farther than that (at least together). Traveling with kids sucks.

♥ Who has the craziest exes?
hmmm.. probably me.

♥ Who has the worst temper?
huh. neither one of us has much of a temper. Maybe me when I'm preggo.

♥ Who does the cooking?
I do generally, but Austin cooks when he can, and he's really good at it. I've learned a lot from him.

♥ Who is more social?
It depends. Austin hates organized social things, but likes big groups of people. (he is great at entertaining when he feels like it) I like small groups, or one on one. But we mostly just like to hang out with each other.

♥Who is the neat Freak?
hmm. Its certainly not me.

♥ Who is the more stubborn?
uhh... me.

♥ Who hogs the bed?
I used to, I've gotten better.

♥ Who wakes up earlier?

♥ Where was your first date?
Baskin Robbins (informal, we were just hanging out, but he paid). or my parents sailboat (the first formal date) depending on which you count as a date.

♥ Who has the bigger family?
We each have five siblings. I have more in-laws and nieces/nephews on my side though.

♥ Do you get flowers often?
No. But he writes me a song every anniversary, which is much more romantic.

♥ How do you spend the holidays?
At home, and some with extended family.

♥ Who is more jealous?
huh? I don't know.

♥ How long did it take to get serious?
a week and a half.

♥ Who eats more?

♥ Who does/ did the laundry?
I do generally. But Austin does his own sometimes too.

♥ Who’s better with the computer?
Me, hands down. there is absolutely no contest.

♥ Who drives when you are together?
Austin. He gets carsick when other people drive.
