Me or My Man?

Found this fun questionnaire on a friends' blog and thought I'd take a crack at it. Some of these were hard! :)


You or your man?


1. Who eats more? I'd have to say that Nathan does. I could not even compete if I wanted to! :)
2. Who said "I love you" first? I did. And I did it pretty fast. It took him a while, but he came around. I think he thought I was going at lightning speed in our relationship and he just wanted to chill. But he couldn't resist!
3. Who weighs more? Umm, let me think, he does. Yeah, I think that's right.
4. Who sings better? I'd have to say me, although he does try very hard.
5. Who's Older? He is by about 2 1/2 years.
6. Who's smarter? Nathan is definitely smarter, because he has a mind like a steel trap and he remembers absolutely everything! I'm surprised I remember what I did last week. Yeah, not much of a memory person. But us both a question about Photoshop and I've got the upper hand. Yeah, baby! :)
7. Who's temper is worse? I think I would have to say that I do. Neither of us are big yellers at all, but I tend to sulk and quietly rage. It does take a lot to get Nathan really mad.
8. Who does the laundry? Me, me and me.
9. Who does the dishes? He's good at helping with the dishes, but lately it's been all me.
10. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? If by 'right' side you mean the side that is the coolest, then of course it's going to be me. But if you mean 'right' side when you're looking at the bed, then it's him.
11. Who's feet are bigger? His definitely are.
12. Who's hair is longer? Mine.
13. Who's better with the computer? Depends on what you're doing with the computer. He's the pro with everything hardware and functioning and all that, but I'm the pro with certain programs. I'd say overall that it's him, though. I mean, that is his job!
14. Who mows the lawn? If we had a lawn, it would definitely be Nathan's domain. He used to mow it (almost) every week at the studio.
15. Who pays the bills? I do. He hasn't paid a bill since we've been married. :)
16. Who cooks dinner? That's tough, because we both do. I should cook way more and I'm trying to start, but it's tough when there's only 2 of you eating and there are a million ziploc bags full of leftovers! But overall, I'd say I cook more, even though he does cook some.
17. Who drives when you are together? He does, usually. If he's too tired I'll drive.
18. Who pays when you go out to dinner? He does, of course. Although it doesn't really matter because the funds come from the same place anyway. :)
19. Who's the most stubborn? Stubborn, hmmm. I would have to go with Nathan. He really does like to have things a certain way, although we're both pretty set in what we expect. I don't know, that's a hard question.
20. Who is the first one to admit when they're wrong? Me. I'm wrong a lot, apparently! :)
21. Who's parents do you see more? Definitely his parents. They're close by so we see them a lot. I miss seeing my parents because they're now living in Cleveland and that's way too far away. I really am sad that Eli doesn't get equal time with the respective grandparents, but that's just the way it goes, I suppose.
22. Who named your dog? We don't have one. Who knows if we'll ever have one. Once we have a house, maybe, but we'll have to see about another kid first, then decide if I can deal with animals! :)
23. Who kissed who first? Yeah, that would have to be me, I think. He knew I was waiting for the kiss and he just kept dragging it out, trying to torture me. (And I think he was a little nervous because he'd never kissed a girl before!) Our first kiss was at Stewart Falls and it was great. :)
24. Who asked who out? He asked me out, for sure. Although, we did just hang out a lot and play games and stuff, but then one night it was just different. Very cool indeed.
25. What did you do? We went to dinner and a movie. Nothing too exciting, but it was because it was our first date and I was so nervous and giggly and we had a great time. :)
26. Who's more sensitive? Me, me, me. And me! I know he's sensitive to my feelings and such, but he'd much rather make a joke than talk about sensitive stuff. It's just his personality, he likes to be happy and jovial and not dwell on the feelings stuff. :) Too bad he married me! Hahaha.
27. Who's taller? Nathan, by a good margin.
28. Who has more friends? I would say that we both have only a few friends. We're really stuck together a lot and we do stuff together all the time. And I'm REALLY not good at keeping up with old friends and such (sorry, Summer!!). But this is on my to-do list to get better at, being friends with people. I'm such a dork, I have a to-do list about being friends with people. Lame-O!! :)
29. Who has more siblings? I do, I have 5 and Nathan has 2.
30. Who wears the pants in the relationship? That depends, what kind of pants are they? Because Nathan sure knows how to rock the sequined stretch pants!! :) No, I think we both have a lot of pull in our relationship. He is always thinking about me and putting my needs first, though, but he also makes a lot of the main decisions. So I don't know, maybe Nathan, with a heavy dose of me. :)

Thanks for reading! :)

I love reading your blog, Laurel! I check it whenever I'm bored at work (which happens all the time). I really liked this post. Maybe because it reminded me of the night you came home and told Alicia and me about your date with Nathan. It was so much fun to hear all about it - especially the part when you were leaving the movies and you suddenly turned to him and asked, "Nathan, is this a date?" So fun!
