Couples Quiz

I have seen this couples quiz on a few other blogs and thought it was cute. Since I have nothing interesting to blog about this week, due to my impending vacation tonight, this looked like the perfect "filler" for the day and I thought I would let y'all know a little about me and the Mr.!

1. What are your middle names?  Michael and Renee

2. How long have you been together?  12 ½ years and counting

3. How long did you know each other before you started dating?  One week

4. Who asked who out?  He asked me out. I tried to cancel our first date 3 times because I had no babysitter - so he decided since we both had a 3 year old child we would just take them on our first date – the rest is history! ;o)

5. How old are each of you?  He is 41, I will be 42 in May (I am 8 months older than him - but I look younger - :o))

6. Did you go to the same school?  No.

7. Are you from the same home town?  No - our hometowns are an hour apart.

8. Who is the smartest?  I think we are both smart in different areas.  He is VERY good when it comes to money and finances, and I am very good when it comes to spelling, English, homemaking, computers, etc.

9. Who majored in what?  He majored in Business Administration and Mass Communications and I majored in Speech Therapy.

10. Who is the most sensitive?  Depends – he probably is more sensitive now than I am – though I used to be the most sensitive (I've been in NY too long - HA!)
11. Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?  Bahamas and/or Mexico

12. Who has the worst temper?  Me, unfortunately. I can either be silent or yell and scream and then give the silent treatment – sad but true. I don’t like me when that happens and try not to be that person.

13. How many children do you want?  We have two 16 yo – need I say more?! HA!  Seriously, I can't have more children unfortunately, due to female issues, so I am very thankful for my 2 even if they are a PIA at times. :o)

14. Who does the cooking?  I do most of the cooking – though he makes an excellent Tomato Soup!

15. Who is more social?  Definitely ME! I never meet a stranger.
16. Who is the neat freak?  My husband is SO ANAL about things and is definitely the NEAT FREAK!

17. Who is the most stubborn?  MOI- Stubborn AS A MULE. Yes, this can cause friction sometimes, but hey, when you're right..., pssssh, you're RIGHT! =)

18. Who wakes up earlier?  Me! I get up at 5:15 every morning to shower, drink my coffee and blog before getting ready for my day. (Hey - I have my priorities in order - :o))

19. Where was your first date?  We went to a place called Playworld in Conway, Arkansas with our two 3 yo children.

20. Who has the bigger family?  Me for sure! I have 3 sisters and a brother and I am the oldest of us all.
21. Do you get flowers often?  Yes, my husband made me my own flower garden – so I get flowers daily if not every other day in the Spring and Summer - whenever they are in full bloom - Awwww...... :o)

22. How do you spend the holidays?  We spend them home alone with just us and the kids now. But when we lived in Arkansas (home) we literally went to 3 different stops every.single.year except Christmas where we stayed home and made that our family day.

23. Who is more jealous?  Neither of us are jealous thankfully.  I'm too social for my husband to be jealous - he learned a long time ago that I am not flirting with men - I am just a friendly person! HA!

24. How long did it take to get serious?  We were married after 2 months – what do you think? P.S. And NO I was NOT pregnant! HA!

25. Who eats more?  He does
26. What do you do for a living?  Hubby – General Manager of Retail for Newark Airport - Me – Legal Secretary in NYC

27. Who does the laundry?  The kids each do their own and then I do mine and the hubby’s work clothes – but he does help where needed with laundry or anything else around the house both inside and out

28. Who's better with the computer?  Definitely ME

29. Who drives when you are together?  He does! He doesn’t like my driving though I am a very safe driver and have never had a wreck - I think it's a man thing :o)

30. What is your song?  You are the Love of My Life by Sammy Kershaw.
Now it's your turn. Copy and paste these questions into your blog and let us all know a little about you and your Mr. OR Mrs.  I can't wait to read your responses!

Happy Thursday my peeps!  We leave for vacation tonight - WOO HOO!!! I will miss all of you greatly, but will try and post daily with pictures from each day - but no promises.   P.S.  If this is your couples quiz from the blogosphere - please let me know so I can give you the due credit. :o)
