The couples tag

♥ What are your middle names? 
Josh's is Adam, mine is Lavina. Yes. it's a family name. Yes. I'm from Utah.  

♥ How long have you been together? 
Dating 3 years.  Married 2.

♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating? 
3 years...but we really didn't know each other that well, and we talked maybe twice a year during that time. Once we started hanging out, we fell madly in love and...well now we're married.

♥ Who asked who out? 
Umm...the first date may not have really been a date.He had a girlfriend, I had a missionary....but if it did count...he wanted to HANG out, I bailed, I told him I was going out with some friends, he kinda invited himself along, and paid, and THEN my friends and I decided it was a date.
If it was the first REAL date he asked me out.

♥ Where was your first date? 
For the fake one that I decided was a date, We went to Training Table, (where he claims I tried to kill him. He says something about food poisoning and choking on his ice. We've never been back since...) and saw Bewitched at the dollar theater, then took a scenic drive home.
For the real one we went to Village Inn, a drive in the canyon, and to the Ceregem beds. The people at the Ceregem store joke that he "took me to bed" on the first date. Scandalous huh?

♥ How old are each of you? 
Josh is 25. Seriously. Weird huh? I'm 23. Also weird, but not as weird as Josh.  

♥ Whose siblings do/did you see the most? 
Probably his. But it's close. We're big on family. It helps that our family is so fun to hang out with.  

♥ Do you have any children together? 
Not just yet, but we certainly will.  

♥ What about pets? 
Josh is allergic. But we do have a lot of plants.  

♥ Did you go to the same school? 

♥ Are you from the same home town? 
Nope. I grew up in Lindon, Josh in West Jordan. When we were dating that was A HUGE difference. In real life, it's like a 25 minute drive.

♥ Who is the smartest? 
Josh. But, we are WAY different kinds of smart. Josh can build/fix/understand anything. I can pass tests on subjects I have no clue about.  

♥ Who is the most sensitive? 
That would be me. But we both have our moments.

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple? 
Probably Cafe Rio. It's fast enough, and nice enough, without being McDonald's, or anything too expensive (clearly we don't go to expensive places since I can't even think of ONE to put the name of here...)

♥ Who does the cooking? 
Me, but he isn't opposed to doing it. And to be honest I don't cook that much. mostly we're snackers at night....Every time I cook Josh makes this big huge deal of it and goes on and on "my wife is such a great cook!", "I'm so lucky to be married to you.", "I'm so glad you're so good to me." You'd think I'd do it more often with that kind of encouragement, but mostly I'm not hungry enough at night to eat something real...or maybe it's that I'm not patient enough at night to wait for me to cook something...whatever, same thing.

♥ Who is more social? 
Josh, without a doubt. He always wants to get out and play with people, I want to sit at home with him every night.  And blog. Blogging is my idea of social.

♥ Who is the neat-freak? 
Both of us, about different things. I like things closed, and wiped off. He's the one who will randomly pull out the oven, fridge, AND washer/dryer and clean behind and under them. Have I mentioned that I love him? I do.

♥ Who is the more stubborn? 
Probably neither. Or both. I don't know. (Does that mean it's me?)  Mostly we're both pretty laid back.

♥ Who hogs the bed? 
JOSH! Sometimes I push him over using all available strength and appendages (it sounds harsh, but really it's 3am and there isn't a lot of strength to draw on...). Sometimes I get out of bed and just take his side. We could really go in circles like that all night long.  

♥ Who wakes up earlier? 
Naturally? Josh. Due to demand...we usually get up at the same time. But he likes it. I'm generally grumpy.  

♥ Who has the bigger family? family is older so there are more of "the next generation" in mine, but his is bigger in our generation.  Mine feel bigger when we all get together because in the words of our sealer "wall to wall kids could mean just one because a kid can get from one wall to other other pretty quickly"

♥ Do you get flowers often? 
I don't think it counts as often, but I don't come home every day wishing I had flowers I'm happy.  

♥ How do you spend the holidays? 
With each other. And we try to trade off families every year. It's one of the things I hate most about the Holiday seasons. Worse than buying stuff for people. I hate the demand, the number of parties, the expectations and the hurt feelings. If I had my way we'd just invite all of our families to come to our house....NOT likely.

♥ Who is more jealous? 

♥ How long did it take to get serious? 
Um. Well, our first date was August 25th, the second a week later, and from the next week on we talked or hung out every single day until we were married. I fell for him, hard and FAST. What can I say? He's charming!  

♥ Who does/did the laundry? 
I like to think it's equal, but that probably means Josh does it more and I'm in denial. He's just so great! Really I sort things (because he doesn't understand the importance of sorting things, and I told him he was not allowed to put things in the washer that I have not approved first), and he puts them in, and takes them out and leaves them in a big wrinkley pile on the bed/couch until one of us breaks down and puts them away. Not the greatest system, but whatever.

♥ Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? 
We have our moments, but I have a hard time pinning down one recurring problem...maybe we haven't been married long enough....or maybe we're just insanely and abnormally happy.  

♥ Who’s better with the computer? 
Me. He's learning though.

♥ Who drives when you are together? 
Usually Josh. I'm not a great driver. But if our options are me or Josh with his eyes closed, we usually choose me....usually.

♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? 
Alaska. But hopefully that's just the beginning.....  

♥ Who has the worst temper? 
Meh. No major temper in this house. It's funny because sometimes I get so mad when he "looses his temper" because he mutters fake cuss words under his breath. Like "son of a bishop!" or "freakin' fetchin'" and then I'm all offended because he has "no control" that's funny huh? Because in real life that's nowhere near losing a temper.


  1. lol i remember the whole choking on ice! lol that was great!!

  2. You guys are a good couple. I like that you try to push him off the bed. You're pretty right about tempers--you two are both good about that. Wait till the little one comes and pushes ALL the buttons though. Then you'll see a temper!

  3. You are so funny! Ok, the whole sealer telling you about the kids, that made me laugh. Our sealer told us the exact same thing! I've never heard it in any of the other sealings I've been to. Funny stuff!
