Brandon and Me and Valentine Stuff

I got this from Susan M. I figured it would be a good Valentine's Day Post since it's about my Valentine (oh, man. That was almost too mushy!):
How long have you been together? Just had our 10th wedding anniversary last month.
How long did you know each other before you started dating? About 20 days or so.
Who asked who out? I asked him why he hadn't asked me out yet, but he technically asked me out first.
How old are each of you? I will be 30 in about 2 weeks; Brandon is 32.
Whose siblings do/ did you see the most? Probably mine, but that's just because some of them live closer.
Do you have any children together? We have Four (with one on the way).
What about pets? We have one cat (a blue-point male Siamese --he's almost 10 years old!).
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? Not having time to communicate to each other what's going on --schedules, bills, kids, ideas, desires, etc.
Did you go to the same school? College, yes. High school, no.
Are you from the same home town? No --I'm from Blackfoot, ID (born and raised) and Brandon was born in UT, but then lived in Texas, Sacramento, and then finally southern California.
Who is the smartest? Definitely Brandon when it comes to academics. I claim the social smarts, but who knows.
Who is the most sensitive? Probably me, but he's more sensitive then he realizes!
Where do you eat out most as a couple? Thai Food!
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? I'm not sure; we were in London together, but we didn't travel there together. But we've been to Hawaii and the Caribbean.
Who has the craziest ex’s? Brandon has more of them, but I might have the craziest ones.
Who hogs the bed? Him
Who is more stubborn? Him (although he'd claim it was me!)
Who is more jealous? I don't think we get jealous --I know I get jealous of my time with him, though (because it's so limited).
Who does the cooking? I do, but I miss his dinners the most. Brandon's a fabulous cook!
Who is more social? Me
Who is the neat Freak? Me!
Who wakes up earlier? Brandon --he's always up early.
Where was your first date? The BYU Museum of Art. We walked there from our dorms and ate lunch in the cafe, walked around the museum, and went for ice cream. It was perfect!
Who has the bigger family? I’m one of four kids, and he’s one of three. But he's the oldest grandson of like 37 grandkids (one side), and that doesn't count the many spouses and almost 20 great-grandkids, too.
Do you get flowers often? Not as much as I used to, but enough. :)
How do you spend the holidays? Which holidays? We're not as big on the holidays as we used to be (Christmas is big, though) because it gets more complicated the more kids we have. Plus more expensive. Plus more birthdays! We keep things fairly simple, I think.
How long did it take to get serious? About a week. Or less. And then we were married 8 months later.
Who does the laundry? I do. Back in the day, he'd help me, but he's so busy now, it doesn't make sense.
Who drives when you are together? I usually do now. For years I never did (or would). But now I like to drive. On date nights, though, he drives.
Is your family still growing? Technically yes (we're having another baby), but this is probably going to be the last child. And we're okay with that!

Don't you love it when post ideas fall into your lap---from other people's blogs or whatever.

Glad he'll be home tomorrow!

Great post. Unfortunately for us, neither of us is a neat freak! Hooray for Brandon coming home tomorrow. I hope he's home for awhile. :)
