1. Who does the laundry in your home, you or your spouse? Any good stories?
Colten does most of the laundry, as he's home more often than I am. I do a load or two every now and then, though.
I do the laundry because she works two jobs, along with the rest of the house chores. (and it means the world to me!!!)
2. If your spouse had to eat at one restaurant for the rest of their lives, what would he or she pick?
Olive Garden. That man can eat SO.MUCH.SALAD it's ridiculous. And he loves their pizza for some odd reason! He seriously will never order anything but pizza there.
I would prolly say pok-e-jo's or subway eat fresh - she loves those places.
3. Are you or your spouse better at cooking? Any good stories?
I am better at cooking! He does it more often, but give him a difficult or lengthy meal to make, and it's pretty funny. Hmm, good stories... He tried to set fire to our oven at our last apartment. It gave our poor dog PTSD for months! He hears the sound of something sizzling on the stove and immediately freaks out. Poor little guy!
I'm good at cooking. I do most of it because she works two jobs. I'm off or at home more, so it makes more sense. Have you ever made BBQ sauce with your feet? I have hahaha. (oh my gosh...the BBQ sauce! he seriously made it with his feet...crazy, crazy night!)
4. Which one of you is more concerned about their "fashion"?
Definitely, 100%, hands down ME. That man never gives any thought to what he's wearing!
Umm, she is, duh. She is a WOMAN - they're all like that. Me, just give me a pair of jeans, a sleeveless shirt, a pair of boots, and my favorite rebel hat and we're good to go.
5. Ideally, if you don't have them already, when does you spouse want to have children?
He wants to have them already, but knows that we need to be way more financially stable first. Ideally, within the next few years I'd say.
We would love to have them now but financially can't afford them. (he's so smart haha. and yes, I know that you never really can afford kids...)
6. Who planned dates when you were dating? And what was one of your favorites?
We didn't get to go on a lot of actual dates when we were dating. It was a long distance relationship, and I'd usually just go to Yorktown to visit him and we'd just hang out. Those moments were priceless though! One of my favorites was the first time we really met. I drove down to see him and we went to a tractor pull in the nearby town. That night, we stood out by the car for FOUR HOURS just talking about everything. Time flew by...
It's hard to say because I didn't have a vehicle. If I'm thinking right, she did. Mine was all of them, but my favorite one was when me and her were with my best friend or 'my brother from another mother'. We were in his truck and Bri and I were making out in the back seat and all of a sudden he yelled, "Look, it's a UNICORN!!!" We just busted out laughing! Good ole times, good ole times. (that was so hilarious!)
7. What's been the toughest part of being a newlywed?
The toughest part has been the finances. We didn't really have a budget or a plan prior to getting married, and then we combined accounts, which pretty much forced us to start budgeting. However, the system our parents use and we now use is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. and is a lifesaver! But we get through anything and everything, so it's all good :).
Nothing really because we get through everything together. (good answer babe!)
8. Who is the best with the finances?
We both have gotten way better with the finances. It's pretty mutual - neither of us is the only one that budgets or pays bills.
Umm we both are.
9. Who is the strict one?
Neither of us are very strict. We're pretty laid back and don't really keep the other from doing something or pursuing something... We try to be strict with money though, which is hard! haha
Neither one of us. I think, anyway.
10. What will you plan to do for your first anniversary? Or if you've already celebrated your first anniversary, what did you do?
We both had to work that day, so we just stuck with simple and went out to eat. It's the quality time that matters anyway! Then, we came home and ate the top of our wedding cake that had been sitting in the freezer for a year. That thing was soooo disgusting!!! I would never recommend it to anyone.... gross!
We went to our favorite restaurant and ate at Olive Garden. (yep!)
