Our first anniversary!

On April 11, 2010, I married the man of my dreams. He's one of the smartest, funniest, most caring and loving men I know, and I am so blessed to call him my husband. I can always count on him for the important things, and he's always surprising me with little things. He's an amazing father, and I couldn't ask for more than our little family.
All in all, I've had an amazing first year with Wayne, and I'm looking forward to so many more!

I saw this questionnaire posted on another blog, and thought it would be perfect for today.  

How long have you been together?
We've been married for a year...today! We were engaged for a year prior to that. 

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
We knew each other for quite a while. Wayne tried to play hard to get, but once I know what I want, I don't give up! Plus, you can only resist my charm for so long :)

Where did you meet?
At work! After I graduated with my bachelor's degree, Kaylee and I moved to TX for awhile, just to have some time together, before real life (ie- work and school) began. When we moved back to KS, it was mid school year, so I worked for 6 months at a law firm. Wayne is the IT director there, and I was basically the office bitch, and did whatever work I was handed. We didn't date until after I had left that job for a teaching position.

Did you go to the same school?
Negative. Even if we did, we wouldn't have been there at the same time!

Who is the most sensitive?
He is. Absolutely.

What about pets?
He came with his two dogs - Biscuit and Dayzee, and I came with one child, Kaylee, and cat, Aurora.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Back when we were both working, we'd met for lunch almost every Friday, and would usually go to Schlotskys. We'd frequently eat out on the weekends too. Now that we have baby, we eat out much less regularly.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Florida, last fall. 
Who has the craziest exes?
He wins again. Everyone would agree to that, no question. 
Allow me to enter just one example.
Exhibit A: After we got married, she moved into a house on the same street as us, about 5 houses down. According to wikipedia: "According to the United States Census Bureau, Wichita has a total area of 138.9 square miles." In other words, there were hundreds of other neighborhoods she could of chosen.

Who has the worst temper?
Umm, I don't think either of us has a huge temper, per se. I do think he's more irritable though. 

Who does the cooking?
That would be me! Since I don't work, cooking is one of my jobs.
The one thing Wayne has ever made for me (besides grilling) is some chicken casserole dish that has a whole bag of crushed Doritos in it. My jeans are thanking me that I've only let him cook once :)

Who is more social?
I'd say we're equally social, but Wayne is way more of a homebody than I am.

Who is the neat freak?
Neither of us, although I do the large majority of the cleaning. I don't get any "neat freak" vibes from him, but his house was a whole lot cleaner before we moved in!

Who is the most stubborn?
I say I am. He says he is. You know neither of us are backing down!

Who hogs the bed?
I say he does. He says I do. We both say Isabelle does.

Who wakes up earlier?
He does. He's usually out the door for work by about 7:15.

Where was your first date?
Hmm. We had countless "just happened to be out at the same place" situations, but one of our first official outings was when he joined me for weekly dinner at my moms house. He invited himself, can ya believe it?!

How long did it take to get serious?
A loooooong freaking time. But after our first official date or whatever, we were engaged within two months.

Who eats more?
I do. Or in reality, we probably eat about the same. But that means this 105 lb girl is matching a 180 lb guy, bite for bite! I keep telling you, I eat more than y'all can imagine.

Who does the laundry?
That's me! (see again, jobs since I don't work)

Who drives when you are together?
He does, but only with my navigational skills!

Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong?
Well, seeing as I have yet to be wrong.....
Joking! I think we're both pretty good about admitting it,despite our previously stated stubbornness.

Who wears the pants in the relationship?
Well, personally, I prefer sundresses. Oh! Not those pants. 
I always tell him it's his job to wear the pants, but I think we try to make the majority of our decisions together.

Who eats more sweets?
That's all me. He doesn't even really like sweets. Which is great, because it equals more dessert for Megan, but then it also leaves me feeling like the fat kid in the relationship!

What's one fun fact about you and your significant other?

  4. Aw so cute! Happy Anniversary! I love hearing other people's "relationship story". :) I wrecked my car the night I met Clayton and didn't call him back for a week because I left my phone in my car as it was getting repaired!! I'm lucky he still gave me a shot when I finally called him back!

  11. Congrats!!!

    So funny that each of you claims yourself to be the most stubborn. Usually it's the other way around. I definitely say my husband is more stubborn, and he says I am, and neither of us is backing down! :-)

  12. Happy Anniversary!!
    My husband and I each came into our marriage with a child. He was a single dad for 10 years and never even dated anybody. A lot of women at church tried to fix him up with their daughter or niece, etc. I was the first person he was willing to meet.
