I saw this on a fellow bloggers blog the other day and thought it was perfect for our birthday post! Happy birthday JR!
Just the 2 of us.....
1. What are your middle names?
Justin Robert, Amanda Ina
2. How long have you been together?
going on 10 years "together"
3. How long did you know each other before dating?
well, I would say 15-16 yearsish. We were born the same day and had been in school together since Kindergarten
4. Who asked who out?
Justin asked me to prom after a few hints were dropped by none other than our moms! After that we started hanging out and he finally asked me out when we were driving around in his mom's Cadillac. How romantic......
5. How old are each of you?
6. Did you go to the same school?
High School- Yes, College: I went to the University of Northern Iowa and he attended : St. Mary's University, University of Northern Iowa, and Allen College. So yeah, for the most part we did.
7. Are you from the same home town?
8. Who is the smartest?
I think we are both smart, just in different ways, about different things.
9. Who majored in what?
Me: Family Services
10. Who is the most sensitive?
Depends what it is about.... I probably am more sensitive though
11. Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Our Honeymoon to Puerta Plata, Dominican Republic
12. Who has the worst temper?
Well we are both Scorpios so we both have our moments.
13. How many children do you want?
Justin would be happy with 3, I think. However, I want 4.
14. Who does the cooking?
Pretty even. Justin grills, I "cook" if that is what you can call it!
15. Who is more social?
This is a tough one. I used to be MUCH more social than I am now. I think Justin has picked up a lot of my slack in the past few years. When we are out and about though we are both pretty even.
16. Who is the neat freak?
neatness- like the picked up kind of clean- Justin
cleanliness- like the actually sanitized, fresh smelling, washed, etc.-ME!!!
17. Who is the most stubborn?
Again, I would say we are both pretty stubborn. Justin thinks he can get out of anything with a joke but I don't give in so I suppose that makes me more stubborn!?
18. Who wakes up earlier?
Depends on his sleep habits for that week. If it is his week off, I do. If he is trying to get on a normal sleep schedule it would be him. He sleeps at random times which leads to him getting up at very random times.
19. Where was your first date?
I don't honestly remember, we "hung out" a lot and went to a lot of movies so I am guessing it was something like that. I'm terrible!!
20. Who has the bigger family?
We have the same size immediate family however, Justin has a MUCH larger extended family that likes to get together.
21. How do you spend the holidays?
Racing between our families celebrations. Cramming as much in as we can during Justin's 2 days off of "normal people" hours.
22. Who is more jealous?
Justin- without a doubt!
23. How long did it take you to get serious
Well, as I said we hung out a lot (like 4-5 months) before actually dating so I guess it was about 6-7 months before we got "serious". (and by serious I mean giving our relationship a title)
24. Who eats more?
Justin, he is a guy- duh!
25. Who does the laundry?
It goes through spurts but it is typically me. He may wash loads of laundry but he NEVER folds it.
26. What do you do for a living?
I work as the Assistant Director for LEEP. It's a non-profit that offers leisure and recreation opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.
Justin is a Cardiac Nurse at ISJ
27. Who is better with the computer?
Me, BY FAR! That goes along with most electronics.
28. Who drives when your together?
Typically Justin. Unless of course he worked the night before. Then he makes me drive which I hate because he yells at me the whole time about how I drive. Just easier if he does! :)
29. What is "your song?"
"Hanging By a Moment" by Lifehouse was our 1st song, but I think we both really like "At Last" by Etta James because we danced to it at our wedding. Justin now refers to that as our song.
