About us

(photo taken by Audra and edited by me)
I've been tagged a couple times to do this meme, and since my brother got engaged this weekend I have romance on my mind!

What is his name? David Raymond G*

How long have you been together? We've been married for 10 1/2 years

How long did you date? 7 months (And it would have been even shorter if David had had his way! We met in September and in October he suggested we could get married at Christmas. That was way too quick for me, so we ended up getting engaged in December and married in April.)

How old is he? 33

Who eats more? David and I debate this issue. If we actually put it to a contest he would win HANDS DOWN. But, I think that on average day I eat more than he does. (There are some days he misses breakfast and lunch and I NEVER miss a meal). But he thinks I am ridiculous and acts like it's an insult to his manhood to suggest that I eat more. :)

Who said, "I love you" first? He did. We were in his apartment and I can still remember that he was kind of nervous. We hadn't been dating very long, and when he said it I was kind of taken back. But I immediately knew that I loved him, too (and told him so!)

Who is taller? He 6'3" and I am 5'8". When I wear heels we're at perfect hugging (& kissing) height.

Who sings better? He sings way better than I do. His voice is one of the things that is so attractive about him.

Who is smarter? We complement each other. I got better grades but he has more street smarts.

Who pays the bills? Me

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? we both do :) (Although last night he just about cuddled me off the bed.)

Who mows the lawn? I have put in my time behind the lawn mower, but now it is his job. He is rather particular about our lawn and does a much better job at it than I do.

Who cooks dinner? I do.

Who drives? We almost never go anywhere together in the same car. But when we do, he drives.

Who is more stubborn? Neither of us are particularly stubborn. But I am usually the first to concede when we disagree on an issue. (I figure it's easier to agree to disagree than to continue an unproductive discussion, but he kind of likes to be right.)

Who kissed who first? He kissed me first. And I stressed about it for a while because I thought he was just out for some action. He quickly convinced me otherwise.

Who asked who out first? He asked me. I have never been good at initiating that sort of thing.

Who proposed? He did. (And he did a very nice job, I might add!) He got on his knee while we were on a buggy ride around Temple Square.

Who is more sensitive? Me.

Who has more siblings? He is the 8th of nine and I am the oldest of four.

Who wears the pants? I think we would both be pretty lost without the other. We work well as a team.

How cute!!! I have been debating on doing this one for a while. It is actually in my "drafts" right now. I loved reading this and what a gorgeous picture, I may add! :)

You guys are perfect for each other! And I really like what you did to that picture. You need to teach me!

How romantic, it makes our story so boring! Though, Scott and I have more intersting memories when we friends in High School!!! I love the picture and I think you need to teach us what you did to it? Are you hiding a talent?
