Tag, I'm It...

This one is all about the hubby. Lauren tagged me for this…

1. Where did you meet your husband? It was all really weird. We met at a Nelson Thanksgiving dinner in Las Vegas at Cal and Jeanette’s house. I had no where to go for Thanksgiving, so I went with my freshman roommate’s sister Sarah and her husband Bryce. Bryce is Eric’s cousin. So we hung out a little bit there, but nothing came of that. Then 3 months later Eric moved up to Provo from Vegas and we ran into each other at Provo Towne Center Mall. We exchanged numbers, and then it was all history.

2. How long did you date before you married? We dated for a year and 3 months. We also had a summer break in there where we just talked FOREVER, while Eric would pace around for hours on the phone. I think he never got more exercise then he did that summer!:)
3. How long have you been married? 2 ½ years
4. What does he do that surprises you? He is more creative and artistic than almost anyone I know. He ALWAYS says things that surprise me because they are totally random. Also, he is forever making up conversations in his head, and I can see his reactions to those conversations on his face, or he’ll move his hands like he was talking, but it’s all in his head! Ha So funny.
5. What is his favorite feature? He has the prettiest blue eyes. They’re like sky blue. I’ve never seen anyone with such a pretty color of blue.
6. What is his favorite quality? I love how humble and honest he is. He has so much integrity, and just tells the truth, even if it’s a hard thing to do. He always apologizes so quickly. Sometimes it makes me mad, because I am a brat and just want to be mad for a little bit. But, it’s hard to be mad for long when he apologizes so fast!
7. Does he have a nickname for you? I guess just babe
8. What is his favorite food? What, why don’t I really know this. He loves steak, anything grilled. I dunno, he is awesome and always says he loves whatever I make for dinner. He’s very easy to please.

9. What is his favorite sport? He isn’t really into sports that much. I guess the one he really likes to watch is boxing, or volleyball. He likes to golf. But, I’d be more likely to be sitting down watching sports than he would…which I actually love about him.
10. When & where was your first kiss? Well, we had been dating off and on from January till April when I went home from school for the summer. Then we spent the whole summer on the phone. We had even said I love you already! Ha. Then he got off work early the day I drove back to Utah from Missouri to surprise me at my apartment. Well, my roommate were a little scary to me at the beginning, so I refused to go into my apartment. Meanwhile Eric had been waiting there for 4 hours for me to come home. He didn’t want to call because it would ruin the surprise. Finally one of my roommate came and told me they wanted to have a roommate meeting. When I went up there he was on the couch. He came and gave me a big hug and our very first kiss in the kitchen of my apartment!
11. What is your favorite thing to do as a couple? Hmm..we love going on walks together. Watching Tivo’d shows, or going on roadtrips.
12. Do you have any children? One…baby Tay, who is almost 6 months.
13. Does he have any hidden talents? He has WAY more style than me with decorating and things like that. He can write the best calligraphy, and do scrapbook stuff like a fool. So funny. He can sing a mad baseline.
14. How old is he? Ahh…31!
15. Who said I love you first? He did on the phone in July when I was home over the summer.
16. What is his favorite music? He is on this classical kick right nowJ
17. What do you admire most about him? He works so hard. He’s a great business person. He is so kind to everyone, and never judges anyone. He doesn’t talk bad about anyone. He’s so creative and can fix just about anything!
18. What is his favorite color? Blue
19. Will he read this? If I tell him to
20. Who do you tag? Carolyn, Kjersten, Veronica, Maria

Do you mean me, when you say Carolyn? Silly question, maybe, but I have been confused on other blogs before. :)

I loved reading these details about you and Eric. You guys are so good together!


Hey, I'm friends with Kjersten and she told me that you are able to make it so that it shows who has posted most recently. I really want to add that to my blog, but can't figure it out. Could you tell me how you do it? Thanks :)
