I asked the same six questions to fellow bloggers and asked them to answer at least four of the questions. So, this week and next, you'll be able to get fun glimpses into their lives, and maybe meet a new fun blogger along the way.
Here are the questions with my responses:
Describe your dating life prior to finding your husband.
In high school, I dated casually but had no long-term boyfriends. My average relationship would be about four months. Not until I got to college did I have my first long-term relationship. I dated someone for two and a half years -- sophomore year, junior year, and part of senior year. My other long-term relationship was a four year one that I had from age 22-26. Both nice guys; just not the guy for me. I don't keep in touch with either of them now but hope they are well.
Describe your husband in one word. How would he describe you in one word?
Ian in one word? Hilarious.
Me (to him) in one word? My guess is that he would say creative.
I just texted him and he responded "selfless."
You had a really silly fight. Embarrassing silly. What was it about?
Goodness gracious. All of our fights seem like this. The smallest little thing snowballs and takes a different path so easily. I'm thinking of one time that he was reminding me of the importance of making sure Drake's water bowl always stayed full and it turned into a fight where I was accusing him of saying that I was a bad dog momma. Ohhh, the drama. We aren't a couple that doesn't fight, but we are a couple that has learned to fight fair and always remember that the most important part of the fight is finding a happy medium.
In three sentences (and only three!), describe where you both hope to be in 5 years.
In five years, to be fully honest, I hope that I have one sweet child begging to be picked up while the other is needing a bottle. I hope that Ian has progressed even more in his job and that I have found a way to balance raising a family and helping to provide for it as well. I hope my mom will give me her cornbread recipe and that I have visible abs.
Tell us something about your husband we wouldn't know from reading your blog.
He has a sense of humor that causes my jaw to drop daily. I honestly can't describe how truly hilarious (and with such a unique sense of humor) he is. The more you get to know him, the more you will see this side of him. Also, we have a secret language of sorts. We have all of these weird words that we say to each other that we totally get, but it's probably really annoying to anyone who overhears it.
What's the one thing you never thought you'd do in front of your husband, but you did?
Oh gracious. Where do I start? One that comes to mind is a Superbowl Sunday several years ago. We were both struck with horrible food poisoning. This dainty lady was vomiting out of the window of his car as he rushed to get me home and on the potty (TMI ... I'm so sorry). About an hour later, he came down with it and we were trading off getting sick in all ways you can imagine. I was in a one-bedroom apartment ... enough said. How he proposed to me five months later still eludes me.
I can't wait to celebrate our anniversary today and tonight!
Hope this has been as entertaining to read as it was to write.
