In honor of our anniversary tomorrow,

here's an old picture and some totally useless information about us.

What is his name?
Honey. Oh, I mean Mike.

How long have you been together? We've been married for 7 years tomorrow, but have loved each other for 10. (That year when I didn't write to him on his mission still counts, right?)

Who eats more? Right now I do. I've got a baby to support.

Who said I love you first? Mike did. It was Valentine's Day 1998. I was visiting him in Arizona with my good friend Mrs. Dub. He took me to an orange grove late at night where we climbed some sort of high tower, or something (it was dark and my memory is foggy). He had a rose waiting for me and seemed super nervous. It was dreamy. (I'm sorry we left you at Wes' house, Mrs. Dub. You were such a good sport. I think your mom was mad that we got home so late. Sorry Sister Ess.)

Who is taller? Definitely Mike, thank goodness.

Who sings better? Mike, for sure. Did you know he's the singer in a band? What's the name of your band again, honey?

Who is smarter? Mike has more practical knowledge. I have a bigger vocabulary. We make a pretty good team.

Who does the laundry? Me. And I like it.

Who does the dishes? I do. He doesn't load the dishwasher right.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Mike. I have to sleep closest to the kids.

Who pays the bills? Me

Who mows the lawn? Mike

Who cooks dinner? Me. Unless I'm too tired. Then Mike will whip up something totally delicious like it aint no thing. He's a much better cook than I am.

Who drives when you are together? Me. Unless we're on a date.

Who is more stubborn? Hmmm. That's a toss up.

Who is the first to admit when they're wrong? I think it's about even.

Whose parents do you see the most? Mike's. They practically live across the street.

Who kissed whom first? Mike kissed me first. (On the second date, no less.)

Who proposed? Mike. I don't remember what he said, but I do remember that it was real sweet and a total surprise.

Who is more sensitive? Me. I like to blame it on the years of teasing I endured at the hands of this guy and this guy.

Who has more friends? Totally Mike. (Although I wouldn't exactly call him outgoing.)

Who has more siblings? I do.

Who wears the pants in the family? Mike. Just as he should.


  1. i hate that i missed your wedding. happy anniversary!!

  2. That was fun! Happy Anniversary!

  3. i don't remember feeling left behind or being late ... but i do remember the look on your face when you came back. i didn't say it then, but i was pretty sure you would end up with mike. (even during that year when you didn't write him on his mission and almost pledged your eternity to a boy who was much shorter.)

    happy anniversary!

  4. so fun - congrats y'all!
    i totally know what it's like to have a hubbie who can't load the dishwasher right.

  5. congrats on the 7 year itch.. which i'm not sure why they say that, someone told me its when you want to get out of your marriage.. what, that's dumb. that was some fun info about mike. the other day eric came across some funny mission pictures of him. wish we had a scanner. oh well.
