All About Us!

I stole this from Hailey {surprise, surprise}

♥ What are your middle names?
Shannon Renee Elizabeth
James Christopher

♥ How long have you been together?
1 year and 4 months

♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating?
8 months

♥ Who asked whom out?
I'd say I did. He asked me for my number though but then I was tired of waiting for him to call, call me impatient, so I sent him a message saying "we need to hang out!"

♥ How old are each of you?
me- 26
him- 24

♥ Whose siblings do/did you see the most?
His, but only b/c I am an only child!

♥ Do you have any children together?
2 Fur babies, Casey & Chanel

♥ What about pets?
Casey Girl- Future Mr's Brittany Spaniel. The BEST behaved, most chill dog I have ever met. She's so easy-going and honestly sleeps ALL DAY and she's only 4!
Chanel Belle- Very high-maintenance! I wanted a Yorkie but someone my mom works with had Pomeranian pups and I just couldn't resist the sweet faces. 3 years later she's still a handful! I wouldn't trade her for the world though! She's my snuggle bunny!

♥ Did you go to the same school?
Nope! I'm an OU Bobcat and Future Mr is just now in the electrical trade school.

♥ Who is the smartest?
Him, for sure. I'll be the first to admit I'm not the smartest cookie in the jar.

♥ Who is more sensitive?
ME for sure! I cry at anything!

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Hmm...we don't eat out too much. I'd say Gahanna Grille. They have THE BEST french fries in all of Columbus. LOVE it there!

♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Oklahoma City

♥ Who has the craziest exes?
Probably me b/c Future Mr doesn't really have any exes, I was his first SERIOUS girlfriend.

♥ Who has the worst temper?
Him for sure. I have a lot more patience than he does for certain things.

♥ Who does the cooking?
Me. I love love love to cook, I miss doing it too. Future Mr claims he used to be quite the cook before I moved in w/him. I'm not sure I believe that.

♥ Who is more social?
Me! I am a social butterfly! I love to go out not b/c I want to eat out dinner, or pay for expensive bar drinks, but just for the social aspect of it.

♥ Who is the neat-freak?
ME! I have become this anal retentive neat freak in the past year. I have no idea where it came from b/c my mom was never this way but now I always want the place to be neat b/c "what if someone stops over"- never happens.

♥ Who is more stubborn?
Me. I will hold a grudge till I die, I swear, how awful. Future Mr is always the first one to come kiss and make up. <3 him for that.

♥ Who hogs the bed?
The dogs!!! I swear I never thought a little 12 pound dog could take up so much room!!! Although they aren't supposed to be in bed when we are they sneak up sometimes. Future Mr definitely though. I will get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and he's completely taken over ALL the covers and is on my side of the bed. Should I be worried? LOL.

♥ Who wakes up earlier?
Me. I wake up at 4:40 during the week to go to the gym before work and the weekends the LATEST I can sleep is like 10 (and that's only if we were up REALLY late or drinking the night before). Future Mr is still sleeping now and it's 9:30.

♥ Where was your first date?
Bar Louie and Gameworks, the BEST first date EVER!

♥ Who has the bigger family?
Him, hands down! We always joke that we're going to have his family sitting on my side during the wedding b/c I'm sure they'll run out of seats on his side.

♥ Do you get flowers often?
not as much as I'd like. I would take new flowers every day if I could, LOL. Brat? Maybe. I know they just die anyway but there is something so beautiful about a bouquet of new flowers on the table.

♥ How do you spend the holidays?
Driving! The city that his family celebrates in is about 45 minutes to an hour away from where mine does. Then his family also likes to have multiple celebrations so we usually end up going to 3 locations. Busy, busy!

♥ Who is more jealous?
I'd say neither.

♥ How long did it take to get serious?
Immediately! I was hooked on our first date! I moved in w/him 2 months later.

♥ Who eats more?
Probably me! I can eat just as much as him, which is sad and sick.

♥ Who does/did the laundry?
Him. That is the one chore that he loves doesn't seem to mind. I do not complain.

♥ Who’s better with the computer?
Probably me just b/c I'm on it a lot more.

♥ Who drives when you are together?
Mostly him. Now that I have a new car I drive a lot more often but he still drives the most.
