The Newlywed Game #5
To definitely invest in marriage counseling before...see this post.
Don't go to bed angry, it's worked well for us. (and we talked about this in small group, he took the easy way out)
TWO:Do you have a pet name for your spouse? If so, what is it?
Oh do we ever? We are ridiculous about this...it's embarrassing...really though, it is. Let's see, what do I feel bold enough to say on the world wide web? Well I like to make all kinds of forms of husband, like hubster or hubby, or the latest is husby...bet the silliest is hunky monkey, and there's no story behind that other than it randomly came to me one day while we were dating and I just started calling him that...that's one of the embarrassing ones.
Little Bear. It came about after we watched the Oscar winning movie Brave. (We saw this movie when we went to the drive in last summer...he thought the little brothers when they turned into bears were so cute...and so it became my name...rolling my eyes usually takes place after he calls me this... another one is franca which was created by some kids I babysat for, it's what my name sounded like when they said it super fast, veronica that is...)
Let's see, ME, my kisses, and ME...haha just kidding, well me and Jesus and some technology
Chocolate, ME, and peanut butter...it's funny because it's food, me and food...or her planner because she gets really upset if she doesn't have it. (way to put God in my hubby!)
FOUR:What is your favorite date idea? (something you have or haven't done)
I've always wanted to go to a drive in, so when we did that I was so excited...but I'm looking forward to a couples massage, I don't know if you can call that a date idea, it's something I want to do together...anniversary husband?!? hint hint
Hot air ballooning, we've never done that and it sounds fun. (agreed)
FIVE:Is there a book or movie that reminds you of your marriage with your spouse? If so, which one and why?
TV show...and that'd be Boy Meets World, Cory and Tapanga because they're super comfortable with each other and my husband has many Cory tendencies, see here.
Boy Meets World even though it's not a movie or book because we're definitely like Cory and Tapanga...that or Modern Family because Veronica has claire like tendencies and I have the goofiness of phil. (fact: we got the entire BMW series on DVD for Cmas this year, fact2: BMW is coming out with a sequal, Girl Meets World and you better bet we're excited, fact3: Kevin's statement is very true)
SIX: Rate the very last kiss you had with your spouse. How was it on a scale of 1-10?
Short and sweet, so a 6.
10, we never have bad kisses. (awww what an awesome answer! love you husband)
SEVEN:What was the very first thing you noticed about your spouse when you first met??
His odd fashion choices...no but seriously, read the first part of our story.
Her smile, she had a very friendly smile. (awww sweet man AGAIN, lucky lady I am!)
EIGHT:What was the very first gift your spouse ever gave you?
Oh my goodness, is it bad that I can't remember?.Shucks, it would have been my birthday...so I think it was a picture frame of pictures of me with scripture
A framed picture collage of three pictures and the words, You & Me for our first Christmas..I was going to say a hand written Bible verse on my dorm door but that was before we were dating and wasn't exactly a gift. (do you know, this man actually has held onto that Bible verse that I wrote Freshman year of college! the girls and I all wrote verses for the guys door, he took his seriously. the photo collage I made was OU themed, we have it up in our bedroom now.)
NINE:Is there anything you sacrificed when you married your spouse? If so, what?
Goodness, I really don't think so....well he has a strange schedule so maybe my ideal thoughts of us both working 8-5 on weekdays? I kind of new that possibility wasn't strong...weather doesn't stop people.
My dream of living up North in snowy lands (this is true, I will not, fingers crossed-please no God, be as accommodating as my MIL).
TEN: What would your spouse say is the funniest photo of you? Try & describe the picture, or post it below!
|I look like a man...gross, why am I posting this?|
|From a date party, 80s themed|
|and because I always include a fun picture at the end of the post...this is from a wedding we attended a couple summers ago. The groom is a photographer and is from Arkansas, HIGHLY recommend him if you're in the area...and his wife does graphic design, one stop shop for any event or wedding! check them out.|
