J+J Chronicles: Getting to know us

Subtitle: Trying not to think about not being able to run

Here’s a fun little questionnaire about the husband & I and our relationship.  I saved this ages ago and I can not remember where I got it from. 

Getting to Know Us

How long have you been together?

The husband & I started dating in March 2005 & got married in March 2009 :)

How long did you know each other before you started dating?

A while but we don’t know exactly how long.  I worked with the husband best friend and that’s how we met.  It was at least a year, if not more. 

The husband & his best friend who was the best man at our wedding

Who asked who out?

The husband asked me out!  We went to dinner & out for drinks.  Very low key.  Very perfect :)

Did you go to the same school?

College?  Yes.  We’re both proud alum’s from CSUS. 

Who is the most sensitive?

Duh, me. 

Where do you eat out the most together?

SUSHI.  We LOVE going out for sushi. 

Where is the furthest you have traveled together?

Maui for our honeymoon!


Who has the worst tempter?

Duh, me.  Again.  I have been known to have an awful temper … but it seems that as I am getting older {you know, I’m the wise old age of 31 now} my temper is calming down. 

Who does the cooking?

95% of the time its me.  If we BBQ something then the husband takes care of it.  Occasionally he’ll do the cooking but if I don’t feel like cooking for some reason or another then it usually means that we end up going out or the husband does a bang up job of heating up something in the microwave. 

Who is more social?

The husband!  He is a social butterfly where I’m much more shy and reserved. 

Who is the neat freak?

Definitely me.  And freak is the right word to describe it. 

Who is the most stubborn?

Definitely me again.  Super duper stubborn.  End of story.

Who hogs the bed?

The DOG, Lucy, when she sleeps with us.  Otherwise neither of us.  We’ve got a HUGE bed and we both pretty much stick to our sides when we are sleeping.


Who wakes up earlier?

Well I’m definitely more of an early riser but since I’m not working I have been sleeping in more often while the husband gets up to run {at 4am} or to go to work {at 5:30am on non-run days}. 

Where was your first date?

Dinner at Rubicon Brewery and drinks at Chargins. 

How long did it take to get serious?

A couple of months and within a year we had moved in together. 

Who eats more?

The husband. 

Who does the laundry?

98% of the time its me but occasionally the husband will take care of it if I ask him.  I try to avoid asking him since we’ve had a few mishaps with him leaving items in his pockets in the past. 

Who drives when you are together?

The husband drives more than I do.  I prefer it that way.  I don’t know why. 

Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong?

The husband.  Probably because he doesn’t like my mean streak and awful temper :)

Who wears the pants in your relationship?

We definitely share all responsibilities in our relationship and we don’t make any decisions without consulting each other.  We have built a wonderful partnership and I’m lucky to have such an amazing husband along in this journey called life.

Who eats more sweets?

ME.  Well, we both do.  Seriously.  We LOVE sweets.  LOVE.

I love this survey! Fun to learn more about you too :) I think I will hold off on filling it out, but if I ever get married, remind me.

I hope you are out running soon too, I know how frustrating it is waiting.
