It's Friday!

I saw this man meme post over at SuperMom's and I laughed so hard I had to give it a go.

1. Who is your man?
Ken aka Kenny, Babe or Jerkwad - depending on my mood!

2. How long have you been together?
Let's see - November 16, 2001 was our first date. Is it odd that I remember that???

3. How long did you date?
Not quite 2 years before we were married. But, we got engaged February 21, 2002. How's that for fast!

4. How old is your man?
35 - just changed demographic groups this year! He's officially middle-aged!!

5. Who eats more?
Definitely him, although I used to give him a run for his money!

6. Who said “I love you” first?
Probably me - I've always been more in touch with my feelings. He just liked to feel and touch!

7. Who is taller?
Him of course, otherwise he would have to be a Keebler elf (stole that from Barb, but still appropriate here!)

8. Who sings better?
I do, probably. But, if you get a beer in Kenny and he loosens up a bit, he sings beautifully!!

9. Who is smarter?
Oh he's way smarter than me. I used to send emails home from work asking him if it applied to me - too many words confuse me!!

10. Whose temper is worse?
MINE!! He's slicked in oil. Everything just slides off of his back. And since I'm much shorter, normally right on to me.

11. Who does the laundry?
I do, are you kidding??

12. Who takes out the trash?
Not me that's for sure! That's a boys job! So I don't care if it's him or one of our sons - flip a coin, draw straws, rock paper scissors - whatever! Just get it out of my kitchen!!

13. Who sleeps on the right hand side of the bed?
Ok this always confuses me. If you're looking at the bed - me. If you're laying in the bed on your back - him. Make sense? Do you care?

14. Who pays the bills?
Him! That involves the use of math. I avoid it at all costs!

15. Who is better with the computer?
Definitely him! I know nothing. But I don't deny it either.

16. Who mows the lawn?
Austin. Again, boys job!

17. Who cooks dinner?
Obviously me. When I went in to the hospital for my hysterectomy Austin said that 5 days of Dad's cooking is a long time. Does that tell you anything??

18. Who drives when you are together?
Normally him. Unless there's beer involved. Then I drive home!

19. Who pays when you go out?
Go out - what does that mean??

20. Who is most stubborn?
Definitely me! I want things done my way all of the time! What's wrong with that?

21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
Me - which is hardly ever! But on the slim chance that I am - I accept it immediately and apologize.

22. Whose parents do you see the most?
Mine, Thank God!

23. Who kissed who first?
Well...there was drinking involved. So, that's a little hazy!

24. Who asked who out?
No one really. His best friend and my best friend are married now too. They had a party. We both went - and we've never really been apart since then. He did call off work that night to stay with me!

25. Who Proposed?
He did, on his knee in my apartment. Still makes me gush...

26. Who is more sensitive?
HA! That's funny! ME! I try to tell him that all women cry over Hallmark commercials but he doesn't believe me.

27. Who has more friends?
I do. Kenny isn't really a fan of people in general.

28. Who has more siblings?
I do. His brother is an asshat (to quote Anthony Bourdain.) I think that's why his mother stopped having kids...

29. Who wears the pants in the family?
Well, that depends. I make the day-to-day decisions I guess. Big things, like the decisions I don't want to make, I leave up to him.

Have a great Friday everyone!!

It is so interesting to see how different families operate in different ways. My answers would be very similar to yours. Thanks for sharing! Love the dancing stick man.

Anita said...

Love Love Love the dancing
I also loved reading your meme. I am not a fan of people in general either.. I liked that answer..
IF you ever figure out what "going out" means, let me know too, will ya? lol

Marilyn said...

Julie, what a cute post! I've always been confused about that whole right/left side of the bed thing, too.....LOL. AND, I agree there definitely are "boys" jobs. I just wish I had a boy around, again, men just don't always want to cooperate!
Have a great Friday!!!!

Bethany Hissong said...

This was funny! I just told a friend of mine that the trash and lawn are the men's job because she's out there every week doing it herself! I just think if he didn't do that, then I would do everything! And he'd be watching football all weekend without moving! We dated just under two years also... I guess when you know, you know!

FarmHouse Style said...

Cute! And also very insightful. Thanks for sharing:)


Anita said...

You know, Rick and I got married 6 months after we met... We have been married 23 years this April...

Some of those answers had me giggling. Sounds like you have a great guy! I didn't know middle age began at 35. I hope I'm still in that group and haven't gone over the back side of that edge.

Julie --
the day-to-day stuff is the most important! I think it's always a good idea to let the dear hubby THINK he makes the big decisions.

Meggie said...

Julie: Sounds like you know your man quite well. It was great getting to know you a little better.

Scrappy Moments said...
