On Valentine’s Day, I spotted this link up over at The Life of a Not-So-Ordinary Wife and thought it might be a fun thing to do with Jeff at dinner on Valentine’s Day. It included questions for me to answer about our relationship, which I then posed to Jeff to see how in-sync we were.
How long have you been married? — We’ve been dating three years and two months. He said 3 1/2 years. Close enough for me.
Where was your first date? — I didn’t know if he considered that first lunch at a local sandwich shop a date, so I figured it was either that or dinner and pool the following week. He counted the lunch.
Where was your first kiss? — Outside Emma’s house, when he walked me to my car. We both got that one.
Who first said, “I love you”? — He did
What were your wedding colors? — They are purple and a kind of peachy/gold/ivory. He knew purple, primarily because he’s trying to figure out which shade of tie he and his groomsmen will get.
What is her most commonly used phrase? — I don’t have one, so this threw me. He went with the quacking noise I make, which is pretty dang accurate.
Who is her celebrity crush? — He guessed Jason Mraz. It’s Gerard Butler. He says, “I knew that!”
If she was ordering drinks for both of you what would you each get? — He said we’d both get beer. I got more specific: I’d get a honey whiskey and ginger ale, and he’d get an Old Speckled Hen.
What is the best meal she has ever cooked you? — I had absolutely no idea. He came up with some chicken and mushrooms meal I’ve made a whopping one time. I’ll have to dig that one out again.
What is the worst meal she has ever cooked you? — This was a no brainer — it was this breakfast casserole I made that called for whole milk, but all we had was skim. It turned into this disgusting, runny mess. Oh man, my belly is churning just thinking about it. And this was Christmas morning breakfast, too. Whoopsies. My champagne cocktails turned out awesome, at least.
What is the most-played song on her iPod? — I don’t have an iPod, so this was way hard. I went with the most-played song on my computer, which is on the other end of the house, and he never hears it. I’m blanking on his guess, but it was not the current fav song, Boyz II Men’s “Benefit of a Fool.” Listen to it, and I dare you not to dance.
What would she say is your most annoying habit? — He said that he stays up too late. It was almost that. I am baffled at how he cuts his nails — in the middle of the family room, standing up, watching TV, letting them fly everywhere. Then he drops on all fours and picks them up. So. Weird.
What is the last thing she does before she goes to bed? — I said wash up. Somehow, I was wrong. It’s set my alarm. He got it.
If you could throw out one item of her clothing what would it be? — I had no idea. Apparently, it’s this tuque hat I have that he says makes me look homeless and like a child, and when I wear it out with him, it makes him feel dirty, like he’s dating a little kid. That totally makes me want to dig it out and wear it more.
What’s her go-to drink at Starbucks? — Chai latte
What’s her blog’s name?! — He said Snap, Crackle, Pop. I don’t think I ever told him I changed it. I don’t really talk about my blog (he hears enough about Jac & Elsie).

Also, as a mini update to That time I didn’t get engaged on Valentine’s Day: That ring he had had in his pocked that he never used last V-day? It was totally the Valentine’s Day gift this year. Which means I have something like two engagement rings now.
