I've been husband TAGGED!

Stephanie, how did you know I love playing tag?

1. Where did you meet? Andy and I met on a BLIND date...of all places! Andy's dad was my older sister's boss and she just thought the world of Rich (my now amazing father-in-law). One day while having lunch with some coworkers my sister met Andy (fate at work), who was just happening to have lunch with his dad at the same restaurant. I have always valued Anna's opinion on all things (to which Andy can attest). Not too long after their chance meeting at lunch Andy called me to see if he might be interested in asking me out, and of course, he was taken by my sexy phone voice immediately (just kidding), no...but seriously he was. =) The rest is history!

2. How long did you date before you were married? We took things very slow (or should I say Andy took things very slowly)! It was hard and confusing for me at times as to why Andy was moving so slowly, but now I really appreciate that he took the time to be my friend first and build a strong foundation on which to be married. I think I needed the man that I was to marry to develop our relationship in just the way he did, for me to be comfortable with marrying feel like he really knew and loved me! He didn't even kiss me for 4 MONTHS, but when he did (which was Valentine's Day) it was straight out of the movies!!! After 6 MONTHS we finally told each other those three special words and after knowing each other for a year and a half he FINALLY proposed. =) Two months later we were married in the Bountiful Temple!

3. How long have you been married? We have been married for 5 years now. Do you know that the official theme for a gift after five years is wood, of all things!?! And that is why I got the three piece set of vintage wood furniture for my anniversary present this year. Isn't it just amazing how things work out sometimes! =)

4. What does he do that surprises you? Sometimes I don't hear Andy come home from work, and he just pops up out of no where and gives me a heart attack! Seriously, though, he makes a killer omelet for me to enjoy in bed on Saturday mornings. Andy gets me flowers every Valentine's, birthday, Anniversary and Mother's day...maybe the flowers aren't so much a surprise anymore, but I appreciate them just the same! He is really good at not telling me what to do or judging/criticising me...I am bad at that on the other hand. Andy has always thought of me as attractive/sexy no matter what and that really surprises me!

5. What is your favorite feature of his? Where do I begin? Am I going to offend any of you if I say that he has a nice butt and strong legs...well, he does. =) I love his tall, handsome self! I love his hair, lips, eyes, hands...all of HIM!!!!

6.What is your favorite quality of his? That is too hard! ...That is like asking me what my favorite show on Bravo is. I love his easy going personality. He has a very healthy self-esteem and a great out look on life...which I am constantly trying to learn from him!

7. Does he have a nickname for you? One that I can think of right now is's a LONG story. We call each other "Babe or Honey"...just like everyone else. My grandparents called each other "Dear" ...that generation had so much class!

8. What is his favorite color? Blue...but I just want to know, does anyone really care? =) That should not be asked of anyone after elementary school, am I right or am I right!?!

9. What is his favorite food? Food...all of it!

10. What is his favorite sport? He loves sports (just like most men), he is really talented at all of them too. He excels at everything: soccer, basketball, ping pong (it was in the Olympics so I am calling it a sport), football, street hockey, volleyball, bowling, tennis, golf. However, he is not a runner or big into weight lifting.

11. When and Where was your first kiss? At the end of our Valentine's Day my apartment...on my couch...very romantic stuff...I know. =) ...I made him work for it!!!

12. What do you like to do together? Everything. If I had it my way, we would be connected at the hip (literally)! We love to play with Tate, travel, go out to eat, go to the movies, play games, entertain company, hang out with our friends and family (A LOT), work on things around the house, play and watch sports, sleep, and just plain chill.

13. Do you have any children? Our pride and joy is Tate Andrew (as you all already know), and his little buddy is on the way!!!! Now if we can just figure out what his buddy's name is, we'll be set!

14. Does he have a hidden talent? Hmmmm...most of his talents are not hidden. He is a really good kisser and has a nice singing voice, he cooks really yummy Korean food too.

15. Who said I love you first? I admit, I waited very impatiently for him to say it first.

16. What is his favorite type of music? I call it "boy music". He likes almost all music, except country. I know his favorite group is Collective Soul...and I like them too which is nice!

17. What do you admire most about him? Andy is my dream man. He is the most amazing person I know and is perfect for me! He is the best father in the world...everyone that knows Andy likes him...and that says a lot!

18. Do you think he will read this? He will, I just hope he doesn't want me to change anything I wrote.

*NOTE: Andy does not want me to talk about his butt, legs or kissing on my blog, but we are married and those things are definitely a part of our life...sorry honey. =)

I tag...Meredith Buchanan, Katey Miles, Marium Seidel, Chantille Jarrard, Heather Smith and anyone else that wants to journal about their husbands. =)

What a fun post. It's always interesting to hear these little tidbits about other couples. You two (well, three going on four, actually) are so cute!

I can't believe that I didn't know a lot of those things! 4 months - holy cow! I think we all know Jer kissed me on our first date! And I didn't know Anna was the person behind the magic! How cool. Thanks for sharing!

You look stunning in the top picture, it captured you really well! The second is good too, but not as fun of an expression.

Ashley said...

AWWWW! You guys were M.F.E.O.!!! I am surprised you didn't put cheese--in any shape or form--as his fav. food.
