This is my first ever tag. In fact, I was going to write a blog about how I've never been tagged before, and then, there you go. So, here it goes:

Where did you go on your first date?
Our first date was set up by his cousin Dave (thanks Dave). We went swing dancing in American Fork...or one of the Fork towns. Never being good at directions I have no idea which one. Then we went to the park and the cops came...oops. Dan also stole my flip flops and hid them. Shameful flirting...shameful. And then I didn't see him again until...4 or 5 months later.

How long have you been together?
Oh it bad that I don't know? Umm...I think we were married in 2003 so I guess we are going on 5 years. Hey, look at that...five years and we still really love each other! Rock on.

Who eats more?
What a silly question. Dan of course. He appreciates food more than I do. Food to me is just something that has to happen. Food to him is an experience.

Who said I love you first?
Neither of us remember. That's kind of sad. But I'm going to say that he did, just because he should have. Oh, I remember when he told me in German (he didn't mean it, he was just teasing me because he didn't think I knew what he was saying...little did he know. He got scared when i found his Dad's german/english dictionary).

Who is taller?
Again a silly question for me. There are not many people shorter than I am. Dan is definitely taller, although I don't realize by how much unless I see a picture. He likes it when I wear really tall shoes. He says its easier to kiss me that way :)

Who sings better?
Dan. Which is really distressing to me since I grew up thinking I could sing. It wasn't until high school that I realized I really couldn't. He doesn't sing though. I have to drag him to choir on Sundays.

Who does the laundry?
Me, although not really willingly.

Who pays the bills?
Dan. Unless it requires that a check be sent in. Then I do it. But if it can be done on the computer Dan does it.

Who mows the lawn?
No lawn to mow...but when we had one I did it because we could borrow his grandpa's really cool riding lawn mower.

Who cooks dinner?
I'm going to say me, but Dan would disagree. I didn't say I cooked it every night, but I do cook a little more than he does. Not much, but a little more. He's a better cook by far. It probably has something to do with the fact he actually likes food that isn't bland.

Who drives when you are together?
Most definitely Dan. I am not a good driver (and when I met him he wasn't really either, but he would never admit it). On our long trips to Utah I drive very little because he likes to be in control. He's gotten a lot better at driving by the way. Once he had to start paying his own car insurance and realized that tickets up it he got better.

Who is more stubborn?
I am for sure..when I care about what I want to be stubborn about.

Whose parents do you see the most?

Who kissed who first?
Definietly Dan. I'm not brave enough to do things like that.

Who proposed?
Dan proposed, I brought up the topic first. He needed a little encouragement. Thanks Scott!

Who is more sensitive?
Hmmm, well probably me. But Dan does surprise me sometimes.

Who has more friends?
Well, we have the same friends so....neither?

Who wears the pants in the family?
He thinks I do, and I think he does. It's a perfectly matched relationship.

And now I'm apparently supposed to tag someone, so I tag mom and Karen. Can't wait to read it!


Andrea said...

This was great Tarah. I'm glad you were tagged! What an entertaining writer you are.

michelle said...

It was fun to read all these details. Some of them were obvious...Dan loving to cook. I remember him being so excited when he first saw my line of spices on top of my stove. Some I didn't know. Thanks for taking the tag challenge!

Rorie said...

And now you're supposed to tag someone else...

I like reading other people's answers to these kinds of things. Thanks for sharing!

Loni said...

So, how do I get this tag? And where do I respond to the tag? I assume I'm the mom you are talking about.

Rorie said...

Mom, you respond in your blog and then you tag other people. :)

Hi Tarah, hope you don't mind me reading your blog. I got it off of Collin's. That was neat to learn more about you. Thanks

Lacey said...

I just wanted to say Thanks again for saving me today. Your such a great person, I really appreciate your willingness to have 4 kids running around, half of which aren't yours!
Question, was that this Saturday or next, either is fine!! Happy Pre-birthday!!

I thought way back at Snow we were the eaters, we were always eating and liked food? I wish I was more like you now with food-it's how my husband is. I wish he had Dan's view of food, and I wish I had your view of food. Oh well. I liked this post, it was good. And, lucky you, I tagged you on my blog so go check it out.
