1. Where did you meet your spouse?

I met Matt at Camp Rock Creek in Norman, OK on July 4, 1985. I went with my mom for a picnic and my aunt was there to help too. My aunt lived in the same town Matt lived in, about an hour away from me. Anyway, my cousin Mickey came too and brought Matt who had just that day broken up with a girlfriend of about two years.

2. What is your favorite personality trait about him?

He is so honest! He just always tells the truth. It is a good quality!

3. How old were you when you met your spouse?

I was 15 years old! I turned 16 August 9th (the month after we met)… he was 18!

4. How old were you when you got married?

I was 20.

5. What is your favorite way to spend time together? (Easy ladies, this is a Christian blog! LOL!)

Honestly we just like to talk and hang out… His favorite way to spend time together might be a LITTLE different than my way, but it’s close 🙂

6. How did your spouse propose to you?

He just asked. He was in college while we were dating, he worked for a horse trainer one Summer between semesters and saved enough money to buy me an engagement ring. I think I made him get on one knee… and he asked my daddy’s permission.

7. Where did you go on your honeymoon?

We didn’t really have much of a “honeymoon.” We had decided to buy a house and we put all our money collectively into getting it ready to move into. We had to have the kitchen remodeled, and new cabinets… We spent the night at a honeymoon suite in a hotel in the city and then went home and started setting up house :). I would love to go on some kind of “honeymoon” for real someday.

Happy Birthday Matt!!!!

eight random things about my marriage ~ a tag/meme

Monday, August 13th, 2007

Ann has tagged me for this meme … here we go (I’m really trying to think random here!)

  1. When Matt and I were signing home loan papers years ago I wrote the wrong date for our anniversary. He was highly offended. I put June 18 rather than the 17th.
  2. Right now I sleep on the right side of the bed, but every few years we switch sides.
  3. During our wedding we laughed and talked during the song prior to the unity candle lighting. I think we were both too nervous to look serious. . . or too young.
  4. Matt and I talk a lot. We always have had good conversations. Many times during our marriage we have laid down to sleep and talked too late.
  5. Matt calls me many times every day and has our entire married life.
  6. I started dating Matt right before I turned 16. He was 18. We dated about four years before getting married.
  7. I scared Matt really bad. One time. I have learned that he can ‘get me back’ far worse than I can get him so I don’t play pranks on him much…. live and learn, but the one time I got him was good. He is afraid of snakes. Not much else. I had been teaching a class at vbs and we had this huge rubber snack as part of our scenery. I brought it home and the drain in our shower that is in our bedroom will come up so I put that snake half way down the drain and propped the drain over it like it pushed it up. I waited until matt came home and very casually said, “hey matt, when you get a chance will you look at our shower, for some reason that drain keeps coming off.” He went in our room to change and stepped into the bathroom and literally jumped backwards 10 feet! I laughed for days, weeks, I still get a good laugh when I remember it. I am not mean. I enjoyed this so much mainly because he is famous for hiding behind doors or just walking by and saying boo and I always jump. always! It was fun to see him jump!
  8. Matt and I like to end every day by going to bed, holding hands, and praying. Many nights one of us falls asleep mid prayer, but we wake up long enough to say amen.

Okay, consider yourself tagged! Yes, you!
