We Interrupt this Hiatus for the Husband Meme

I got tagged by my friend at Don't Eat Baby, so here we are...
Thanks for your good wishes, the hiatus is going well and I should be back on a more regular basis soonish.

Brag About Your Husband

What is his name: I try not to advertise online

How long have you been married: 13 years this June (note: edited from the "who is better at math" question, clearly him too!)

How long did you date: First time: 2 months. Second time: 9 months. But we had known each other for a decade by then.

How old is he: 40

How old are you: 39 (no, really!)

Who eats more sweets: ummm...that would be me. By a mile.

Whose parents do you see most? Well, mine are dead so I'd have to say his.

Who said I love you first: Aloud? Him. By slavish devotion more becoming to a puppy dog? Me.

Who is taller: That would be him, by almost a foot. If I sit on our kitchen peninsula I am almost as tall as he is. I'll tell you, it's a different world from up there.

Who can sing better: Tough call. I used to sing more, but by now, I have to say he sings better.

Who is smarter: Clearly he is.

Who does the laundry: Until the second child was born? He did. Since then, I've taken over. I guess it's my turn for the next 11 years.

Who does the dishes: I think it's an even split so I'm sure that means he does them more.

Who pays the bills: Both of us.

His guilty pleasure: WIP Sportstalk Radio, old war movies, and Scarlett Johannsen

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed: He does. I used to, but then I got pregnant and the bathroom is much closer to the left side.

Who mows the lawn: He does.

Who has more friends: Not to go all Bill Clinton, but define friends. He has an incredibly tight bunch of guys from both high school and college, but not one of them lives within fifty miles. I have a collection of people I hang out with from all stages of my life.

Besides you, who is his best friend: his best man

Who cooks dinner: Currently, it's me, which is a shame, because he's much better at it than I am

Who is more stubborn: that would be me.

Who kissed who first: He totally had to kiss me first. We'd been good friends so long, I didn't want to mess it up by kissing him if he wasn't interested. Which made it surreal when he was.

Who asked who out first: He must have asked me. Because I never would have thought he'd be interested in going out with me. (Which, come to think of it, he wasn't. He was really interested in my friend. But I was willing to work with that.)

What was your first date: Probably a movie at the Media Theater. Mississippi Burning? Hannah and Her Sisters? (Wow, neither of those have particularly good relationship chi, huh?)

Who proposed: He did, shocking me speechless (quite a trick)

Who has more siblings: No contest. He's fifth of five and I'm an only.

What is your favorite thing about him: Can I only pick one? He makes me laugh like no one else. He is a great listener. He knows me better than anyone and loves me anyway. His thoughtful practice of our faith. Watching him be a dad makes me swoon. I lose track of my thoughts when I look in his eyes. He's scary smart and fun to talk to. Sorry, that's more than one. And did I mention his biceps?

I tag Mary, Tiffany, and Anjali, since Rachel already played. Happy Valentines Day!
