Because I love you!

My gorgeous little sister, Steph, tagged me and I am HORRIBLE at answering tags but since it was her first one and I adore her, I thought I would try to get this one answered!

So, it's all about your spouse and so here's our story.

1. Where did you meet? We were set up by Shane's sister-in-law about a week after he got home from his mission..... yea you heard me, a week!

2. How long did you date before you got married? Like I said he had been home a week... we didn't really hit it off needless to say. But about a year later he happened to be visiting his brother during spring break and I had canceled a trip with my room mates to come home due to some unexplained irrational intense feeling of homesickness. He asked me out again... I didn't want to go, but for some reason couldn't say no and so we went out, had fun and were married about 5 months later.

3.How long have you been married? 8 years

4. What does he do to surprise you? He brings me flowers and the makings for delicious smoothies. He takes the kids to the store or park or out to eat when he can tell I need a break. And every once in a while, it really does surprise me how funny he can be when in the right mood!

5. What's your favorite feature about him? I like his lips and his calves.

6. What is your favorite quality about him? I never ever have to wonder if he loves me because he tells me and shows me CONSTANTLY. Also he is THE MOST honest person I have ever met!

7. Does he have a nickname for you? "Sweetie" all the time... sometimes it surprises me when he calls me by my name :)

8. What's his favorite color? Red.

9. What's his favorite food? He really likes a lot of stuff, but way up there on the list is lasagna, tiny spicy chicken and nachos.

10. What's his favorite sport? Depends on the season. No, he really likes basketball and college football, but really he will watch almost any sport.

11. Who said I love you first? Shane

12. When and where was your first kiss? In the basement of his brother's house. I was very nervous because I knew he wanted to kiss me and I had a rule that I would not kiss a guy if I didn't know his middle name. He kissed me and I had to stop him and ask what his middle name was... then we continued.

13. Do you have kids? 3. Brandon, Lindsay and Logan and one on the way and what an awesome dad they have.

14. What is a hidden talent that he has? Doing an awesome runway walk... yes, really!

15. How old is he? He will be 31 in December

16. What's his favorite type of music? He really has a wide variety of things he listens to. One of his favortie groups ever though is Red Hot Chili Peppers

17. What do you admire most about him? Like I said, he is super honest. He is smart and funny and lives to make his family happy. He is very devoted to the things he loves.

18. What's his favorite past time? Well, we like tv and movies, but his hobbies are camping, fishing, and hunting.

19. Will he read this? Eventually when he does his "catching up" on the blog! Love you Shane!

How fun! I love the story about not kissing until you know the middle name.

Cami said...

Love it! It was neat to hear how you guys got together. Oh, and I love the first kiss story! Cute!

The Cox Family said...

Love the 1st kiss story! And I think you should have him perform that "catwalk" :)

Ok I am LOVING your family pictures! What a beautiful family. So it was fun to read about your hubby...I especially like the hidden talent one with his runway catwalk...maybe with a little shimmy at the end and when he "rips his shirt off like this!" Sounds exciting Marie:)

I am also loving Brandon's "To Do" list for you...short and sweet...give all the "chores" to daddy. You've taught him well:)
