This is For the Love of My Life

What are your middle names? ~ My husband's is Donald, after both of his grandpas and mine is Leagh.

How long have you been together? ~ We started dating not quite five years ago and have been married 1 year and 5 months.

How long did you know each other before you started dating? ~ We met the night before classes our freshman year at college, which was August and started dating in April, so 8 months.

Who asked whom out? ~ Well it depends who you ask. I think we both were pretty flirtatious, but Mark was more of the pursuer, until he got a girlfriend from his high school. Then, we waited until they broke up...and that night when we got back from the bar, I finally asked him if he was going to kiss me or not and he did. And that was the start of it all!

How old are each of you? ~ He just turned 24 last month, and I'm 23.

Whose siblings do you see the most? ~ That's probably a toss up. He only has one sibling and I have like, well I don't remember right now how many I have-too many, so we probably see my siblings in totality more-but if you split that up between each sibling it'd be a lot more equal! We love them all and would spend more time with everyone if we could.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? ~ That's tough. We are still newlyweds and are making these huge decisions that will effect everything. And we sometime struggle with making sure that we're open and honest with each other with both our hopes and our fears. Though we've been together for five years, and have always known we would end up together, and what our life goals would be, we now are realizing that we will have to make sacrifices for each other in order for us both to reach our dreams. Right now it's just facing the unknown and working together.

Did you go to the same school? ~ Yes, K-State. We're two of the biggest K-State fans ever. Our children have no hope.

Are you from the same home town? ~ Nope

Who is smarter? ~ Hmm, well... I'm book smart, he's more hands on intelligent.

Who is the most sensitive? ~ Hey, what's that supposed to mean!?

Where do you eat out most as a couple? ~ Every Friday I'm lucky enough to get a lunch date with my honey and we typically split our time between the local Mexican restaurant and the local Chinese place. We're pretty easy to please. Of course, it may be a little while til we get to go to the Chinese restaurant, as a little old man ran his car straight into the door yesterday! Best part was, everybody in town knew about it within the hour, and most people had already stood outside to gawk. Gotta love small towns.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? ~ We just returned from Lousiville. 10 hours one way, in a truck together. And we're happy to report: We made it home alive! It was nice, we are both pretty laid back and only had minor arguments about the direction of the road we were taking or the speed of travel.

Who has the craziest exes? ~ I think that would be me. No elaboration is really needed is it?

Who has the worst temper?~ That would also be me, but Mark holds everything in. I just let it ALL out, then I'm pretty much done with it.

Who does the cooking? ~ Me again, as is evidenced by this blog.

Who is the neat-freak? ~ We both like everything clean, but we both are kinda lazy and hate to clean.

Who is more stubborn? ~ He's pure German farmer and I'm just stubborn with no genetic heritage to blame. He's more patient, but I'm less stubborn.

Who hogs the bed? ~ Mark says that's me, I say I'm just cuddling.

Who wakes up earlier? ~ Me, for the most part. Don't let him fool you.

Where was your first date? ~ First date? Are you kidding me? Dorm life didn't allow for dating, especially not a guy that had been your best friend for the whole semester.

Who is more jealous? ~ Ha, this thing is starting to remind of our premarital counseling. This one's pretty easy, it's definitely me. But, I have become a lot more secure in myself and in our relationship in the last couple of years.

How long did it take to get serious? ~ Well, Mark told me we would get married before we were even dating. So, it didn't take long. In fact, I remember telling him that I wasn't really sure if I wanted to start dating our freshman year of college, because I knew that once we started dating we would be together forever. But we did, and that was it.

Who eats more? ~ I put up a good fight, but he does outeat me.

Who does the laundry? ~ I do for the most part, but Mark will help me out and do some loads when I'm feeling really lazy. Or when he want clean underwear.

Who drives when you are together? ~ He does, he thinks he's a better driver, I think I'm a better multi-tasker.
