Autumn asks: How did you and your spouse meet?

Sandra over at Diary of a SAHM did this questionnaire yesterday and asked her readers to join her. Here are my answers.

1. Who is your man?
Dion, a SMSGT in the United States Air Force, a lover of extreme metal music (mostly Christian now-a-days), a man that loves his family, is a thinker and almost always looks like he's frowning if you don't know him, takes his responsibilities very seriously, loves his country, loves mopars and is waiting very pateintly to be in a position to pick up a junker and restore it.

2. How long have you been together?
24 years

3. How long dated?

Just over a year...and several of those months he was away at boot camp and tech school.

4. How old is your man?
He is 40 years old

5. Who eats more? Him

6. Who said "I love you" first?
I honestly don't remember.

7. Who is taller?
Definitely him, he's 6'0 and I'm only 5'5

8. Who sings better?
Him. I sing really, really bad. That's why we try to sit next to loud singers in no one can hear me! LOL!

9. Who is smarter?
Lets just say we both have our strong subjects and our weak ones.

10. Whose temper is worse?

11. Who does the laundry?
I do - but there was a time in life when I worked full time that he did it.

12. Who takes out the garbage?
First choice would be whichever kid is assigned. Then its his turn. I fall in that line last.

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
He does

14. Who pays the bills?
I do -- can any current military wife say they don't? If they do I'll show you a husband that never deploys.

15. Who is better with the computer?

16. Who mows the lawn?
He does - now that our son has moved out!

Depends. If I don't cook, he does. He's a GOOD cook. And he has control issues about his food.

He does

19. Who pays when you go out?
He does - I have no money!

20. Who is most stubborn?

21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
He is - I have issues.

22. Whose parents do you see the most? Mine. They even came to see us when we lived in Iceland.

23. Who kissed who first?
It was a mutual thing

24. Who asked who out?
He asked me out

25. Who proposed?
He did

26. Who is the most sensitive?
He is.

27. Who has more friends?
I do. I'm more trusting of people in general.

28. Who has more siblings?
He does. 2 with the same parents and 6 half brothers/sisters. I just have one sister.

29. Who wears the pants in the family?
He is the boss. He is the boss. He is the boss. :)

30. How did you meet?
I worked with his friends and there was a Kiss/Ratt concert coming up and his friend said they were going and I should sit with his friend since he didn't have anyone to sit with and I didn't have a ride. The rest is history.


  1. That was interesting to read. I love reading how people met their spouse!

  2. Oh my gosh! I love that photo of you guys at the I know where your daughter gets her looks!

  3. Yep Angela.....60 pounds ago I looked just like Songbird. Geeshh.

  4. You DO look like Songbird! That was the first thing I thought of. Neither one of you look the same. I do. I have always looked the same.
    I love reading about how people met also. That was great. We have been together for just over 25 years, close to you both. Hard to believe, isn't it?
    I can't remember my password, again.
