I have been tagged by a couple of friends, but one of the tags I did a while back ---it's here if you're wondering. But now that I've revisited it, I probably should have tried again. Oh, well. Here's the other about Jacob and myself:
#1. How long have you been together? Since October of 2003. We've been married for coming up on 4 years now.
#2. How long did you date? We hung out in the same friend group for a few months, but then dated just about every day for 3 months before we were engaged.
#3.How old is he? 31
#4. Who eats more? I hope Jake does, but I can seriously pack it away.
#5. Who said I Love You First? It had to have been him. No way would I have had the guts.
#6. Who is taller? Jake. --that was a dating prerequisite.
#7. Who sings better? Jake does by far. I have no singing talent. When we were dating I worried it would bother him since he comes from such a musical family. Turns out it doesn't.
#8. Who is smarter? I can't just outright say Jake. I have to put up a fight on this even if I can't even figure out North from South half the time. I think we have our smarts in different areas.
#9. Who does the laundry? Me. But I don't iron, and he usually will help with folding.
#10. Who does the dishes? Me most of the time.
#11. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Jake for now. I have to sleep closest to the bathroom.
#12. Who pays the bills? I'm in charge of divvying out the moolah.
#13. Who mows the lawn? Jake. I refuse to learn how because I want it to stay that way. However, somehow I'm in charge of the edging.
#14. Who cooks dinner? Both. I try to do it more, but Jake is good to cook for us too.
#15. Who is more stubborn? I think me.
#16. Who kissed who first? Jake kissed me, but I was expecting it and okay with it. Otherwise, I never would have let him.
#17. Who asked who out? Jake asked me out. We'd been rudely sarcastic toward each other up to that point, so I was a little confused.
#18. Who proposed? Are you kidding? Jake. But not until we'd discussed getting married. (I was never real big on relationship surprises...)
#19. Who is more sensitive? Depends on the situation. I certainly cry a lot more easily with movies and country songs than I did 10 years ago, though.
#20. Who has more friends? I don't know. We both have a lot of really good friends. Jake makes friends more easily, but we both have gotten very lucky in this department.
#21. Who has more siblings? Jake by one. He has 2 bros. and one sis. I have one sis and one bro.

I'm supposed to tag other people now, but I've seen this tag up on a few different blogs. I don't know who has gotten it and who hasn't. I have enjoyed getting to know some random things about people, so if you haven't received this tag, then you are it!

You know, I just can't imagine the two of you making sarcastic remarks. Are you sure you didn't just make that up? It's funny how you can know someone really well, and yet it is always fun to hear about them again. I swear I didn't read anything that would surprise me, but I was still so entertained and amused while reading.

I laughed at the line about sarcastic remarks, too! That is one of the things I just love about you!
