About my Love

So, I was tagged by my old roommate Heather to fill out this questionaire and here it is.

What is his name? Brian C.J.

How long have you been married? 1 year 8 months 28 days 1 hour as of the time I am typing this

How long did you date? 1 month then, we broke up for the worst week of my life (it was my own doing which made it worse) then another month before we talked about marriage, we were unofficially engaged for a month & officially engaged for 5 months (I don't reccomend being engaged that long)

How old is he? 25

How old are you? 23

Who eats more sweets? Brian definately , but since we have been married my sweet tooth seems to have doubled.

Who said "I love you first"? I think Brian was ready to say it first, but I think I actually verbalized it first.

Who is taller? Definitely Me, by 3 inches.

Who can sing better? Me, but I love it when he sings to me or when I catch him crooning Cameron to sleep (the only times he sings outside of church)

Who is smarter? We are smart in our own ways & we both think things through differently. We come at problems differently; so, when we work together we can pretty much solve any problem we have.

Who does the laundry? That would be me, washing, folding & ironing. Brian hangs up all of his shirts though so it makes his stuff a little easier. About a month ago, when I was sick, Brian did a load of diapers though (We do cloth diapers, I was very grateful & surprised that he did it) a task I have yet to get him to repeat.

Who does the dishes? We try to do them together, but lately Brian has been doing the brunt of it

Who pays the bills? He works hard for it and I do most of the bill paying, but we try to do the big stuff together

His guilty pleasures? Peanut butter and chocolate, combined & a good book. Though he doesn't have any guilt about his pleasures

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? We both do. Otherwise, we would get up on the wrong side of the bed and no one would want that now would they?

Who mows the lawn? We haven't mowed our lawn yet, but when we do I am sure it will be Brian. Our grass just doesn't grow very fast or tall.

Besides you, who is his best friend? Jared (since he was little), Dustin (from school) & Tim (BYU roommate)

Who cooks dinner? Me mostly now, but when I was pregnant and just after Cameron was born Brian was the sous chef (so basically the first year of our married life)

Who drives? Him mostly, he says I am too careful and pay too much attention to the legislation

Who is more stubborn? We are both pretty stubborn, but I probably eek out in front

Who kissed who first? It was a mutual kissing

Who asked who out first? Brian asked me out first because he couldn't get the person he originally wanted, but it turned out better that way for him anyway.

What was your first date? We went out dancing & he actually danced more than just the slow dances, that pretty much won me over

Who proposed? Grandpa Crane - its a kind of long story, you can ask me for details if you want them

Who has more siblings? We are both 5th of 6

Who wears the pants? We both wear pants; unless it is Sunday, then I am usually in a skirt. We make decisions together (I am guessing that is what the question was really asking)

What is your favorite thing about him? His smile, His laugh, the way He makes me laugh, the way He notices the small things, His tenderness, His understanding, how hard He works, how I fall even more in love with Him when I see Him play with or take care of Cameron, how He falls even more in love with me despite my short comings. Mainly, I love the boy that made him the man He is today & that he is man enough today to strive to be the man that he can become tomorrow

Tag: Amanda, Tiffany, Becca & Ryan (just change the words to she) & who ever else actually reads this and hasn't done it yet

Please consider this a request for the details of the proposal. I am sure all of your readers would like to hear the story- even if they do already know it.

I'm so glad you did it! I missed out on all the fun stuff, so it is nice to hear how you fell in love and what a great man he is.
