The Newlywed Game #5
That would be Kevin. Since he's home Sunday through Tuesday, he volunteers to do that and grocery shopping so that our one weekend day together, Sunday, is spent enjoyable together, not doing chores. Story wise, besides the one he mentioned, not really...
I DO! There was one time five pieces of chocolate went through the dryer in the load of whites... (and I rescued it with OXI CLEAN MAX POWER, at the suggestion of my coworker... it works miracles!)
TWO:If your spouse had to eat at one restaurant for the rest of their lives, what would he or she pick?
Kevin would probably pick Cheddars...he said it's one of his choices, he can't choose one.
Hhhmmm, Olive Garden.... (This was a question we answered at small group, LAST WEEK! My answer was actually Sweet Tomatoes, who's with me?)
This is EASY. Me, totally, all me. One time, I set up Kevin with a new recipe I found on pinterest involving crescent rolls (like the Pillsburry kind in the can). I thought it was be a simple, easy one for Kevin to try...false. While I'm at work I get a gmail chat pop up, HELP! What do I do? It's all in one roll. He was talking about the crescent rolls...well that comment alone was awesomely hilarious but I go ahead and explain how there are dotted lines and you tear at those lines and they'll be little triangles and how you roll them up from there. It seems like all will go well from that point. I go to the chiropractor after work, tell them the story, and get home to find out that in fact Kevin did not ever understand the crescent rolls, and proceeded to tear off chunks of the dough from the tube form it came in...not even exaggerating yall. I about die laughing, there is no containing it...I probably teased him for the rest of the evening...which got worse when we watched some tv show and no joke, a commercial comes on showing a lady unrolling the dough roll, tearing at the lines and forming the crescents...oh goodness I'm laughing even now. My coworkers and the chiropractor office laugh about it to this day.
Veronica is definitely the better cook, I mess up the simplest things, like crescent rolls. (best story of our newlywed life to date (see my answer))
FOUR:Which one of you is more concerned about their "fashion"?
Oh me, for sure.
Veronica, she's more concerned about her fashion and my fashion. (haha, well truly spoken...though what he didn't say is he's enjoyed his new fashionable wardrobe I've helped form)
FIVE:Ideally, if you don't have them already, when does you spouse want to have children?
Ten years...if he could have it his way...that would make me 33...I'd like to try before that.
Six to seven years. (sounds good)
SIX:Who planned dates when you were dating? And what was one of your favorites?
Kevin did and one of my favorites would be...hhhmmm... possibly the first monthiversary where we cuddled and looked at the stars, talk, sang, and had our first kiss.
Mostly me but Veronica planned some fun ones too. My favorite was going to the Florida aquarium together and meeting the penguins. (haha that was fun, we went on spring break, and Kevin looked like a kid on Christmas morning he was so excited to meet penguins and touch them!)
SEVEN:What's been the toughest part of being a newlywed?
I think choosing to serve Kevin when I really don't feel like it...for example cooking a meal when I get home, even when I'm tired.
Raising a puppy.. (he was sick the first few days we had her, he was miserable)
EIGHT:Who is the best with the finances?
Kevin. We use MINT.COM and I love that.
Probably me but not because Veronica is bad at that but I like to manage and organize that aspect of our life. (and I like to let him manage and organize it...well we budget together, and discuss things together, he just makes sure all our bills and loans are paid on time)
NINE:Who is the strict one??
Oh Kevin. Hands down. I call him the Rule Follower often. He has on more than one occasion been called such by airport security even...he waits at the line when they check my ID instead of standing up there with me...silly man.
Me...Veronica calls me the Rule Follower (see told ya!).
TEN:What will you plan to do for your first anniversary? Or if you've already celebrated your first anniversary, what did you do?
We hope to spend at least one night away and go to a nice dinner.
We're going to spend two nights somewhere within driving range, TBD (most recently we've been discussing OKC, real close to home).
BONUS QUESTION: Assuming you were expecting something a little special for Valentine's Day (as in yall planned on doing something, giving something, etc), how did your spouse do? Share it! Again, PG people, please.
We answered this last week, so check our answers there.
This sweet girl graced us with her presence in the office yesterday since her daycare was close due to our cold wintry mix. I put my safety glasses on her and she was just too cute not to take a picture of...so great! If you're on instagram, you already saw my picture but her mom caught her smiling so I put her version up.
