My Husband and I

My cousin Lydia, who got married in March, tagged me in this cute meme on husbands and wives, so I thought I'd play along!

What are your middle names? Michelle and Paisley (can you tell he's Scottish? His name is Ian Paisley, lol)

How long have you been together? We started dating January of 2006, and got married June 14th, 2008.

How long did you know each other before you started dating? Hmmm, about seven years. We were in the same small gifted program together, starting in middle school- 6th grade. We became good friends around 11th grade!

Who asked who out? Ian asked me out. We were sitting in his car and he said "I really like you, and I think we should date." I said "Alright." and he said, "but I want to make sure you are okay with me going away (he was going to Jordan for a year,)" and I said, "Alright." Then I ran out of the car, into my house to tell my mom and sister! Needless to say, he was VERY confused. He called my best friend asking her to translate my reaction, haha! We straightened it out.

Whose siblings do you see the most? we used to see my sister the most, but considering we are about to move in with my in-laws and brother in law, I suppose it would be his.

Do you have any children together? No, not yet. It's a constant discussion, but we realize how young we are.

What about pets? No, and I am super sad about that. The region of the world we are moving to though, doesn't like dogs at all. And I'm not a cat person. Maybe a fish one day!

Did you go to the same school? Yes, 6th through 12th, we went to different colleges though. We will do seminary together however!

Who is the most sensitive? oh definitely me. I cry at the drop of a hat, but I'm getting better at being more emotionally in control.

Where do you eat out most as a couple? Anywhere Mexican. Hole in the wall places are usually the best.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? Brazil? (predating) Jordan? (while dating.)
Who has the craziest exes? I guess me! I was Ian's first girlfriend. Though I wouldn't call my two previous things "boyfriends," more like crushes with titles, haha

Who has the worst temper? He does. Not because it's horrible, but because he shows it very easily.

Who does the cooking? I do, Ian doesn't know how to cook much besides pancakes and eggs (but that does come in handy!)

Who is more social? Ian, most definitely. I'm actually an extreme introvert, unless I know you/feel comfortable with you.

Who is the neat freak? Me, only because I like things done a certain way (darn you Dad, and your dishwasher loading lessons!!!!!!!!!!)

Who is the most stubborn? We're both pretty stubborn... but Ian's nickname while we dated was "stubborn," and the bear he gave me was named Stu (short for stubborn,) so what does that tell you?

Who hogs the bed? Hmmm, definitely. I am more of a "here is the line down the middle of the bed, don't cross it." He is more of a "oh, look! you're small and aren't using up every inch of your side so I will just invade."

Who wakes up earlier? Ian, because he, you know, Works. It's a foreign concept to me now!

Where was your first date? PaNeRaS and church (Status church,)

Who has the bigger family? Well he has a bigger immediate family, but I have a bigger extended family (hey look Lydia! We have the same answer here!)

Do you get flowers often? No :( Ian didn't grow up around that kind of thing, so it takes him alot of work to do them. He is working on it though, because he knows how important to me it is.

How long did it take to get serious? Less than 6 months. Really probably 2.5, but it's hard to tell because it was all long distance.

Who eats more? Ian

Who sings better? Probably me, just because I have more "training," ie church choir and such. But believe me, no one wants to hear us!

Who does the laundry? I do. I'd be afraid for what would happen to my clothes!

Who’s better with the computer? Ian thinks he is the guru, and I let him think so. I'm pretty computer savvy though.

Who drives when you are together? Ian, he doesn't just like to sit still

Who picks where you go to dinner? We decide together

Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong? Am I wrong? haha, no, probably me though, just because I am wrong more often. Ian doesn't speak unless he is almost positive he is right on a matter.

Who wears the pants in the relationship? We discuss things and try to come to a compromise. If that's not possible, it's ultimately up to Ian. So he wears the pants. Pass me the skirt please!

Who has more tattoos? No tattoos in this household.

Who eats more sweets? hands down, I do!
