I have gotten this tag now several times and finally decided to participate. I was hesitant at first because what else could you really learn about me after my, "100 Thing About Me" post. Apparently, I can't resist responding to the tagging.

How did you meet your spouse? We worked together at First Security Firstline. We were on the same team (groups of tables with the same supervisor), but we didn't meet for a long time. Eventually we had a similar work schedule and started talking. We started talking more and more and then we started exchanging books and going to lunch. Everyone noticed and kept saying we should get together, but I was like, "Ew, he is so old." It all worked out in the end though.

How long have you been together? If you count our, "hanging out phase, engagement phase (we didn't have a dating phase) and our marriage it would be almost 10 years.

How long have you been married ? 8 years in May

Who said I love you first? Scott did, after our first huge fight

Who is taller? Scott

Who sings better? Neither of us sing very good

Who is smarter? I'd say we are about equal, but Scott does have a Master's degree. I guess that DOES make him smarter than me. We both love learning though.

Who does the laundry? Both of us

Who does the dishes? Both of us

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Scott

Who mows the lawn? Scott

Who cooks dinner? Both of us

Who drives when you are together? Both. Scott likes to drive on road trips though.

Who is the first to admit when they're wrong? Scott is definitely better than me at this.

Whose parents do you see the most? We used to live at Scott parent's house so it was definitely them before. Now it is about equal.

Who kissed who first? Scott kissed me first, but it took him forever! The opportunity was perfect (drive-in movie theater) but he waited until the second showings of all the movies. The movies were Runaway Bride and Sixth Sense. I got home late that night though. Oh snap.

Who proposed? I did. I didn't mean to. It was a couple of nights after our first huge fight (a monumental turning point in our relationship). I was dressed up as Velma from Scooby Doo (Halloween) and we were talking about our fight. "The Fight" was about me deciding that I was young and wanted to date lots of people (even though we had never talked about whether we were exclusive or not) and Scott said he wasn't going to hang out with me anymore because he didn't want to get hurt. Anyway, the not seeing each other thing didn't last and we were at his parents house and he was trying to be all nice, asking what I wanted, should we still "hang-out", see other people, etc. I said I thought we should just date forever (apparently the proposal) and he asked if I wanted to get married. I said, "Sure."
That was the first time we defined our relationship. No one even knew I was seeing anyone. The next day was surreal, because it was like, "weird, we are getting married". We kept it secret for a couple of days while it processed. Our families weren't that surprised when we told them. Apparently, they were more clear-sighted than we were.

Who is more sensitive? Me, but I am really good about saying when I get my feelings hurt. Maybe too good? Scott, any comments on that?

Who has more siblings? I do. I am the oldest of 6 and he is the oldest of 3.
