Tagged - My Man

Like Lynn, my sister in law, said answering questions about Dan is easy.
1. What is his name?
Daniel Vinson Reeves
2. How long have you been together?
We got married 4 years ago.
3. How long did you date?
We started dating in October and got engaged in January and married in April.
4. How old is he? 29
5. Who eats more? He does, unless I'm pregnant.
6. Who said 'I love you' first?
He did.
7. Who is taller?
Dan is, but that's not exactly hard ;) He's the perfect height!
8. Who is smarter?
Dan can hands down beat me in almost every category except budgeting.
9. Who does the laundry?
I do.
10. Who does the dishes?
I do. Dan's really good at helping around the house, but his least favorite chore is dishes.
11. Who pays the bills?
I did in the states, but he does here because they're in Czech. 12. Who mows the lawn?
Hmm. . . . it'd really be nice to have a lawn.
13. Who cooks dinner?
I do, and he never complains.
14. Who drives when you are together?
Almost always Dan, when we had a car . . . but we're not missing it with gas prices and repairs. The trams usually don't deal with traffic either.

15. Who sleeps on the RIGHT side of the bed?
Dan does at the moment if you're looking at the bed. If you're in the bed I do. What kind of question is this?
16. Who kissed who first?
It was very mutual, but I helped A LOT.
17. Who asked who out first?
These questions don't really tell anyone much. I met Dan in a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) class. Dan had to take one class to graduate and it would delay him a year. So he got a second minor. Which is how we met. Dan sat next to me in class and I liked him right away. The next day I got to class early and sat in the exact same seat hoping he would sit next to me again and he did. It took Dan a long time to actually ask me out and I helped. I used a pick up line on him. "So, my name's Valerie but you can call me. . . " He called and we went bowling. We've hung out just about everyday since.
18. Who proposed first?
He did. We went to Cedar City to visit my sister and spent Sunday afternoon in Kolab Canyon. Dan went off by himself for a minute and then led me to an area that had rose petals all over the ground. I seriously thought he had found the remnants of another romantic moment. Then he dropped to his knee. His goal was to suprise me and he did. Of course I said yes!
19. Who has more siblings?
I do. I have two brothers and 3 sisters. Dan has two brothers and two sisters.
20. Who wears the pants in the family?
We both do. I hate wearing skirts. Actually it depends on what you're talking about. We compliment each other very well so any weakness either of us have, it's a strenght for the other person.
