Husband Tag!

Thanks for the tag Megan! ;)

Ok, since most bloggers I know are female, let's take a moment to share some details about our husbands. Make sure to post a picture of your honey bunch too!

DISCLAIMER: If tagged, here's what you do. Post the questions below and fill in your information on your blog. Then, at the end, list 5 friends you "tag." It's a great way to get to know fun little things about people.

What is your husbands name? Steve! However, I belong to the exclusive club of 3 who gets to call him Steven (the others were mom & grandma)! And he still only likes that occasionally, and preferably when I'm not mad.
How long have you been together? We started dating in September of '98 and got married October 23, 1999!
Who said I love you first? Me, by about 3 seconds :)
Who is smarter? Steve would say that I am, at least in the book smarts department. But he has a mind like a steal trap! Seriously, he remembers anything he hears, reads or sees. Both amazing information and completely useless facts!
Who does the housework? That depends on Steve's work schedule. Christmas time, all me. Steve owns a vacation route now, so if he covers someone on a really busy route, we don't see him then either. Since I'm home more I do most of the cleaning, and he helps with dishes and laundry a lot. In Denver when he was home before me, I would come home to a clean house and laundry a lot!
When looking at the bed, who sleeps on the right? That changes a lot. In our house in Denver it was me. Now it is Steve. When I am pregnant I make him switch me, so I can lay on my left side and face out. Steve would say I sleep in the middle, and that is usually where I wake up!
Who pays the bills? Currently it is me.
Who cooks dinner? Again, currently me. Steve can cook and grill really well though. In Denver he developed a talent for cooking salmon in many different and tasty ways, so I try to put that on the menu regularly and insist that he work his magic.
Who drives when you are together? Always Steve! You would think that he would get sick of driving. I guess since he does it all the time and is a very good driver he ends up being a terrible back (passenger) seat driver, that makes me crazy. He also is a walking GPS so I just let him drive. I don't mind at all.
Who is more stubborn? I'm pretty sure this is no contest for me! He is stubborn too, but he is much more subtle about it than I am.
Who kissed who first? He kissed me!
Who asked out who first? He finally asked me out on a real date when my roommate told him he couldn't hang out with me anymore if he didn't! We had been doing the big group hang out thing for awhile. (He had even kissed me before our first 'real' date! He had to know I wouldn't turn him down! :)
Who proposed? He did, a very simple sweet proposal. I knew it was coming, because we had been picking out bands for me and him. His mom died when he was 19 and Steve got her wedding ring. So we put her big diamond in a new setting for me and we put the 6 little diamonds into Steve's band. I just didn't know when the rings were going to be done!
Who has more siblings? Me! I have 5 sisters and 1 brother. Steve has 2 brothers and 1 sister!
Who wears the pants? I have to say we share them pretty well. He looks way better in them than I do though!
I recently put all of our pictures on an external hard drive, and without plugging that back in this is the only picture I had of Steve. I sure think it is a cute one. He got Taryn out of her 1st or 2nd big girl bath (sitting up in her bath chair) while I finished up with Byron. She played so hard in the tub that she fell asleep in daddy's arms before he even got her diaper on!
Since I'm new to blogging the only people I can think of to tag (who haven't done this yet) are Kristin and Karalee!

Janelle,

Once again, I'm glad I'm on your email list! I'm so glad you've started a blog, too. Now we'll be able to keep in touch again. It's been too long! I'm glad you guys are doing well! How old is your baby now? I had a little girl in October, so she'll be six months in a week or so. I'm SO glad to hear from you--and I loved reading your post!
