This is us...

... NO!... not the show....(but isn't that show amazing?!?!?)

Since yesterday was Valentine's Day & it was the book link up, I saw this little couple quiz thing going around & thought I'd do it for a post-valentine sort of post.  Plus, its just a fun way to get to know us better.

This should be fun...

How long have you been together?
We started dating at the end of 1992 & got married in 1995.  Married 21 years now - 22 years this year... & I have to remind Ricky because he keeps telling everyone we just celebrated our 20th. I'm like, "That's SO last year"... he said his brain is stuck on 20.  I'll nudge him when we hit 25 I guess.

Not our child... but looks like she should have been :)

Who asked who out?
I dont even really remember being 'asked out'... it was just sort of known that we were going out.  I do remember our first 'official' date was my birthday - so see?  That's just a given that we're going out.

Do you have any kids together?
Nope... we've had lot of fur-kids together.  But only 2 legged creatures?  Nope.
Ricky has 3 daughters though so I have been blessed in other ways.

Who said I love you first?
Oh man... this is trying on the memory.  The downfall of being together when the year was 1990-something...

I do remember though we were at the beginning of our relationship & wondering if this was going to continue & we were discussing what to do & I said, ''.... you know I love you too...."
So technically I said the words a loud... but like how I added the "too" there to make it look like he said it first?  #ihaveawaywithwords

Who is the most sensitive?
Depends on the subject.
Feelings hurt?  Totally me
UK basketball?  Totally him
Hurt animals?  Both of us

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Being a vegetarian, Mexican is usually the best place we can go.  We just had this conversation last week that Mexican is usually what we eat 95% of the time.  Cant go wrong with beans & rice.
No animals were harmed in the making of those products

Who's older?
Ricky is... 10 years older actually.  He's never seemed that much older than me... ever...
Not sure if that's saying I'm more mature for my age ... or he's immature for his.  hmmmm.....

Who has the craziest ex?
.....Define "Craziest".....

Who has the worst temper?
Again ... depends.
A dirty kitchen counter after I clean? TOTALLY ME!
A UK Basketball game?... WATCH OUT WORLD.  Harvey Dent runs & hides from his daddy in his kennel every UK game

Who is more social?
ohhhh - without a shadow of a doubt, 10000% - me

Who is the neat freak?
that's sad.
But we'll both randomly get in moods where its like THROW ALL THE THINGS AWAYYYYYY.

Most romantic?
depends on the day.  We both have our moments.
Though I will say, Ricky did it up yesterday for Valentine's Day.  So I'll toss this one solely to him just for the surprise set up he had for me when I got home
(I'll talk about it tomorrow for Thankful Thursday)

Who is the most stubborn?
Gosh... I'm so wishy-washy on this.
I really think it depends on the topic.  Or the current mood.

When the hubs orders my #starbucks while I run to the bathroom & gets it wrong. ... but actually, sshhh, it tasted better  #VincentsRockSundays 06.19.16:

Who wakes up earlier?
The hubs considers it 'sleeping in' if you're still asleep by 6am... even on the weekends.

Who's the funniest?
I would say me... though on the flip side, Ricky usually finds nothing humorous that I say or do.
Go figure.

Where was your first date?
We went to The Olive Garden & then to see the movie TOYS with Robin Williams ... the worst movie I think I have ever seen in my life.  Literally, the WORST movie EVER!

Who has the bigger family?
He does. I have only one brother... Ricky is one out of 5.

Do you get flowers often?
Usually for anniversary & birthdays & holidays...which I'll always take. I know some people dont ever get them.

Who eats more?
Please note - I could eat probably more than 99% of the population.  I am a eater.

Plans date night?
We dont have children & usually are always out doing something so I always say every time we're together, its date night. No planning needed.

Who picks where you go to dinner?
Funny... just funny...
you know that game. "Whatever you want"... until you hear what they want & then you're like, Nah...
Its usually what we're closest to.

Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong?
 I dont think either one of us will admit we're wrong.
... but I will say, the hubs is usually first to apologize which makes me love him again & again.


Who wears the pants in the relationship?
There are many styles of pants, is there not?

Who eats more sweets?
OK... remember when I said I could out eat anyone? The hubs will ALWAYS win the award for the one who eats the most sweets.  The man loves his sugar.

Who cries more?
Ohhhhhh.... Let's not forget I'm the one who cries at least a few times a day.
I cry when I'm happy -I cry when I'm sad - I cry when I'm mad - I cry at commercials - I cry at something beautiful - I cry when I'm joyful... take a guess at the answer to this one.

More sarcastic?
The hubs probably couldn't be sarcastic if he tried... me? I live by that rule.

Who makes the most mess?
..... this could be the start of an argument... I'll let it go....

Who has more tattoos?
Neither.  But I want one... & I want Ricky to get a Beast one & I get a Belle one.
We totally should, right?

Better singer?
Well, I would have always thought me... but the hubs did tell me one time I wasn't as good as I thought I was sooooooooo....

Hogs the remote?
me.  Dont touch my remote.

Better driver?
He makes me nervous.... but I make him nervous.

Spends the most?
Probably a toss up.  I can spend a good bill on some yarn or Beauty & the Beast stuff...he's pretty good at keeping it even by the cost of jeans.  The man loves his jeans.


Totally him.  He can figure out any math problem you have.  He's like Rain Man when it comes to numbers.

Did you go to the same school?
Nope... being 10 years apart, it wouldn't have mattered anyways.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled?
Las Vegas babyyyyyy

Who hogs the bed?
This goes solely to Harvey Dent.

I got up this morning, walked into the kitchen to get some water & in less than 5 minutes, Harvey Dent ran around the house, got all these balls & put them in my spot of the bed. That boy. #spoileddog #rjvdogs #australianshepherd #dogsofig #mybabyboy:

Who does the laundry?
Me... only because I hate for him to touch my washer & dryer.  I have a system. Dont mess with it. Dont touch it.

Who's better with the computer?
Me... only because I'm on a computer so much more than he is.

Who drives when you are together?
Depends on the car.  If we take my car, I have to drive because I refuse to let him move my seat because I cant ever get it back to where I like it & its up too close to the steering wheel for Mr. Long Legs...

(I notice I've said not to touch the remote - my washer & dryer & now my car seat... I may have issues.)

Me after typing this thing out....

Who is more annoying?
After getting that insight after that last question - apparently I'm more annoying.  By far.

So do you know us better?
Still want to be my friend? ... I promise I'll let you touch my remote
... but you still cant move my car seat.  EVER.


  1. I loved how he did it up for Valentine's day for you yesterday - definitely went all out :) I totally hog the remote more too LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. aww i love this! you guys are so adorable and i love the 90s look of the first pic hahaha.

    my husband is the mathlete in the house. he was even in math camp in high school VOLUNTARILY because he like it #nerd

  3. Love this! It was a fun way to get to know you guys better :) I especially like the way you added the "too" in to the first I love you.

  4. Haha! Love this! I could totally eat mexican every day! And I totally think you should get those tattoos. They are awesome!

  5. It's funny you posted this. I have a condensed version going up on my blog tomorrow! Mine didn't have some of the questions and some of them I skimmed off. I didn't get the 'crazy ex' one, though! K has more exs, but my one ex was a psycho.... so I'd still probably answer me. (Although thinking about it, there was one nutso from his past, too. Lol)

  6. I saw your vday post on Instagram, so sweet. Those tattoos are awesome. And we can still be friends as long as you don't mess with my car seat either!!!

  7. I like this, I'll have to steal it for a rainy day. I too am the Queen of "don't touch my blah blah" or whatever it is.

    And EVERY TIME he gets in my car, he moves the seat CLOSER. I like to sit as far back as I can from the wheel. I don't even have to change the seat in his car, though he's a good 5-6" taller than me. But he hops in mine and scoots it closer? No thanks pal. Plus his car has heated seats, mine doesn't. And I also drive a stick shift which he's terrible at, and I don't make it better with all the noises & faces I make when he does it wrong. So, I guess what I'm saying is, he usually drives, and I'm a little neurotic. Haha. Aren't we all?

  8. O my gosh this is hilarious! Yes, I still want to be friends and now even friends with Ricky

    You two make a great couple and are so lucky to have each other!

  9. I love getting to know you guys more. This is so much fun. Love that you have been together that long!!!

  10. Oh, I love this! Loved getting to read more about you and your Valentine! I may have to "steal" this, Rebecca Jo.

  11. Our dogs are the bed hogs too!

    I don't think you're're particular about how you like your stuff. I *might* identify with that. hahahaa

  12. I enjoyed reading this! My husband is 14 years older than me, and we don't have kids (neither of us has any). Our dogs are both little but it's funny how they can take up so much space on the bed.

  13. Love this and getting to know you and Ricky better! :D Max, my cat, hogs the bed too, especially after I get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Eating is also my super power. I wish exercising was!

  14. Y'all should totally get those Beauty & the Beast tattoos!! I love that throwback pic, too - 90s clothes were the best. What a great post :)

    Meg, Borrowed Heaven

  15. This is so fun! I forbid Matt to do wash too, which he's fine with. But seriously, do not mess with my laundry system!

  16. This was fun. You guys sound like you really belong together.

  17. So fun to get to know the two of you better. I love your answer to the who wears the pants question.

  18. Such a sweet and fun post. You guys are precious! You MUST get those cool. I'm a crier too, it just comes, can't stop it! Have a wonderful evening!!

  19. Enjoyed this! Wish I had more time and I would do it too!

  20. I had to laugh at Harvey Dent hogging the bed, and I was so amazed at seeing how Ricky loves you so much and how much you love him... :) That Valentine's Day set-up he did for you was precious. I totally need to read your blog posts more, because I really love your sharing sister.

  21. This is so cute! I love the picture of the two of you at the top! Adorable! I can't wait to have those types of decade-y photos.. this doesn't even make sense... but like other than we are super young.. our oldest photos don't look that different. The styles were enough the same. So I can't wait for like 20 years from now when all of our clothes will look sooo 2016! ehhe I love this list so much. LOL on the basketball. We live where it was invented... and it's a BIG deal here... I don't really like sports at all. Harvey Dent, that's too funny! XO - Alexandra

  22. This is adorable and so are you guys.

    My husband and I started dating in 1996 and the 90s pictures are everything.

  23. How sweet! You guys have been together for such a long time and are such a great pair. And yay Harvey Dent... dogs are expert bed hoggers, are they not?! Even my 12 pound dog!

  24. This was so fun. When you described you crying, I was smiling from ear to ear because that totally describes my mom. I find it endearing.
    And, you sure did make me miss some Chuy's........

  25. I had no idea he was 10 years older--I would have never guessed! Guess he ages well :) And that first pic of you two is so adorable! And I can't get over how long your hair is...
