All About Us

Since our 1 year anniversary is fast approaching, I thought it was the perfect time to steal this fun relationship meme from Ms. Mindless, Ashley, and Mrs. Crab.

1. What are your middle names?
Ann and James. However, I changed my middle name to my maiden name after getting married.

2. How long have you been together?
A little over 3 years.

3. How long did you know each other before you started dating?
We started dating right after we met. For a more in depth post about how we met, click here.

4. Who asked whom out?
Well, the first time we officially hung out, he asked me, but that wasn't really a date. It was more a gathering of people in a bar. I guess our first real date would be my cheer formal, and I kind of asked him to go with me. It's actually a funny story. One night our team was having a party at the cheer house and he had come to hang out with me. All the girls on my team knew I wanted to ask him to formal that night, but I was waiting to build up the courage to ask him. Well, of course one of the other cheerleaders asked if he was going with me before I had asked him. He looked at me and said something along the lines of "I don't know, do you want me to go with you." So then I was like, "Yeah, do you want to go?" It was really funny. We still joke that I "kinda sorta" asked him out.

5. How old are each of you?
I just turned 24 on Wednesday and he is 25.

6. Whose siblings do you see the most?
Definitely mine. I have only met Alson's sister twice. She lives in California.

7. Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Law school. It is so stressful for him because, well, it is law school. He wants so badly to do well and make me proud and I know he puts a lot of pressure on himself.

8. Did you go to the same school?
Yes, we went to the same college.

9. Who is smarter?
We are both smart in our own ways.

10. Who is the most sensitive?
Hmm. Depends on the situation. But, the majority of the time, probably me.

11. Where do you eat out most as a couple?
We go to many different places since there is an endless number of restaurants in DC, but we probably frequent the diner on the corner most often.

12. Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Well, we went to California to visit his family a few Christmases ago and we went to St. Lucia on our honeymoon. Not sure which is further? Actually, I just googled it. From Raleigh to LA it is 2236 miles. From DC to St. Lucia it is 1981 miles.

13. Who has the craziest exes?
Neither of us, I guess. We have had no ex problems.

14. Who has the worst temper?
Me. I get so fired up about the littlest things.

15. Who does the cooking?
When we eat in, I cook and he cleans. But I hate grocery shopping and he hates doing the dishes, so I don't cook often.

16. Who is the neat-freak?
We both like to be neat, but rarely are neat. We blame it on the size of our apartment.

17. Who is more stubborn?
Me. I like things my way.

18. Who hogs the bed?

19. Who wakes up earlier?
He does. I am not a morning person whatsoever.

20. Where was your first date?
Like I said before, I guess our first date was my cheer formal. But, our first solo date was at my favorite Italian restaurant in NY, Little Venice. We have the food shipped to us on special occasions. It is SO yummy.

21. Who is more jealous?
Neither of us. This is actually one of the reasons I fell in love with him. He makes me feel like the most important girl in the world and I never get jealous.

22. How long did it take to get serious?
Days. We were engaged after three months of dating!

23. Who eats more?
Definitely him.

24. Who's better with the computer?
Him. When he asks me when I last defragmented my hard drive, I stare blankly.

25. Who drives when you are together?
Now that we live in the city and I am the one driving on a regular basis, I tend to drive if it is somewhere within the city. On long trips and when back in NY, he drives.


  1. awww...I love it that it took you both days before you were serious.
    My husband and I were the same way.
    There was something there, right from the start!

    Fun read!

    BTW..I hate grocery shopping too...but as a Stay at Home's part of the job!

    Hope you had a great Birthday!

  2. I loved reading this and learning more about you!!

  3. I didn't know you were engaged about 3 months! How neat! when you know, you know! We both hate grocery shopping too, so we do it together!

  4. Aw, I really enjoyed reading this especially since I only recently discovered your blog.

    My boyfriend is going to law school starting next fall, and I'm already anxious about keeping him sane during those tough years.

    What you wrote about jealously, I just sent to my boyfriend because that's exactly why our relationship is so great. I'm not jealous, which is new for me... haha.

  5. What a great idea for a post! As I was reading your answers, I was thinking of how I would answer with my DH. . .

    Oh, and hope you had a great birthday, too!

  6. i'm totally stealing this from you : )

  7. I don't think I realized that you two were engaged so quickly! And I thought we moved quick, but you totally have us beat :)

  8. When I got married, I changed my middle name to my maiden name too! I didn't want to give that piece of me up.

    You two are so cute :) xoxo

  9. This is great! We love to grocery shop as a couple!
