Laura and Jed tagged us this morning, and I like these things, so here goes....

How did we meet?
We met online. I had been on ldssingles for a while, but had only met some really rude people, so one day I decided that I had had enough, and I was going to delete my profile because I was tired of the meanness, so I canceled my subscription, and I went to "delete profile" (you can have a profile and not a subscription), but something said don't delete your profile. And I thought, no way, I'm DONE, I want off of here, but again something said do not delete your profile. So I said fine, I'll leave it there, but I'm not checking it! A couple of months later I got a little flirt, so I sent a flirt back. Then I got another one, then I got a message. So I decided I would up my subscription for just a month so that I could see what it said. And of course it was from Justin, and we started emailing, then IM'ing, then we said I love you and decided to get married, THEN we talked on the phone, then we met in person.

Where did you go on your first date? We went out to dinner at Olive Garden in Clackamas in Portland Oregon. Justin drove all the way over there from Blackfoot Idaho when we went down for the scrapbooking convention, and for Great Grandma and Grandpa's party, and to see Joanna and Aunt Earlene. Then we spent the whole weekend together, until he finally had to leave to drive home. He drove all night to get back in time to go to work. He got home, changed clothes, and had to leave for work.

How long have you been together?
July 29 was our 1 year anniversary. We'll have known each other 2 years on December 9th.

Who eats more? Justin eats a little more than I do

Who said I love you first? Justin

Who is taller? Justin

Who sings better? I think Justin sings better, but I'm pretty good too sometimes :)

Who is smarter? I think we're pretty evenly matched which is something I love about our relationship.

Who does the laundry? Me ( I know I've mentioned this, but I HATE laundry)

Who does the dishes? I do usually, but Justin's been doing them more.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Justin

Who pays the bills? I do, except the truck payment, Justin does that

Who mows the lawn? Anyone that's willing

Who cooks dinner? Me.

Who drives when you are together? Usually Justin but I do sometimes, maybe 1/3 or 1/4 of the time

Who is more stubborn? That's tough, I guess I'd say we're pretty equal, depending on what the topic is we're being stubborn about. He'd say I was more stubborn, but I think we both are.

Who kissed who first? I kissed him on the cheek when we first met in Portland, but Justin kissed me first for a proper actual kiss.

Who proposed? Well it just sort of happened. We were talking (online) about how comfortable we felt together and then we decided that even though it didn't seem possible to love someone we'd never met that we were in love. Then Justin said "now what do we do?" and I said I guess we talk about the "M" word. And he said ok, and then he asked me to marry him, and I said yes. Then we looked at rings online, then when we met in Portland he gave me my ring.

Who is more sensitive? Probably me

Who has more siblings? Justin has 4, and I have one

Who wear the pants? Justin, but sometimes I wear them :)

I tag anyone that wants to participate, I'd like to know this stuff about everyone!
