i have seen this 30 question things on a few blogs so i thought i would try it. here goes...
1. When is your "marriage" anniversary? "Engagement" anniversary?
March 13th, 2009. as for engagement? November.. oh crap. sean always quizzes me on this and i forget! i know i am awful. but if its any consolation, it was a random weekday..but i know it was right before thanksgiving.. i am gonna go with... Tuesday, November 25th 2008.
2. Where/how did you meet your spouse for the first time?
We actually met in high school, probably when we were about 16 or 17. but we were reacquainted when i started working at first colony mortgage in 2008.
3. How long have you known your spouse:
well if you are going off of when we first met, then 7 or 8 years. but we didn't really get to know each other until 2008.
4. How long did you date/court before you were engaged?
hahaha. i hate this question. i never EVER thought i would be one of those people, but it was about 2 months. maybe a little less. and i hate answering that question, but, i felt like we dated a lot longer because we were with each other 24/7. and as cheesy as it is... when you know you know. and my mom always says, "when you meet the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to begin right now."
5. Do you have any children:
No.. not yet.
6. Do you have any house pets:
yes. a crazy, insane, adorable yellow lab named moses. he is 8 months now.
7. What are some of your favorite activities together:
well, we like to do different things. i think he pretends he likes to watch movies with me and i pretend that i like to do outdoorsy things with him. but we both enjoy watching sports together, eating, and playing with our puppy.
8. Do you have a favorite vacation spot:
we love vegas. i don't care if that is trashy. we love it. we also like pebble beach and anywhere in wyoming.
9. Where was your first date?
haha. well on our first official alone date sean thought he was taking me to a Josh Groban concert. turned out to be john schmidt, but i thought it was better than josh groban would have been anyway. and also it was hilarious cuz he was like "tickets are way cheap!" and i was like "really? for josh groban? did you already get them?" and he said "no, we just get them at the door." i knew right then we probably weren't going to see josh groban. which was okay with me.
we also went and ate at chili's and he could not stop watching the football game on tv. it was pretty funny. he felt bad about it. it's not like he was bored but it was a really good game or something... also at the concert he was pretending to lead the music while we were sitting in the audience and i was so embarassed but i also could not stop laughing. i knew right then that this was something special.
10. When did you first kiss?
about 2 weeks after our first date.. maybe like 10 days? we went down to vegas with a bunch of friends and the 2nd night we were there we were just talking in one of the spare bedrooms. it was one of those deep conversations that had been going on for about 3 hours. i decided to "shun" him like dwight and jim do on the office for something that he said. he said "fine" and he rolled over to the other end of this huge king size bed. we laid there for like 10 minutes. neither of us budging. and finally he said "chloe, i don't want to be shunned anymore. i don't like it at all." so he rolled over next to me and kissed me.
11. Who said I Love you First?
well. this is up in the air. sean sort of tricked me into saying it. we were driving through the canyon one day and sean was talking in spanish and i started repeating all of the spanish that i knew. so i said "yo Quiero Taco bell." then i said "yo Queiro Sean." and he said, "Do you know what you just said?" and i said, "I want Sean?" and he said no, "technically you said I love Sean." i stood there frozen for a minute and he didn't say anything and it was kinda awkward. then i was like "well those taco bell commerical's are full of crap then." and then it was silent again. then finally i was like "well, what if i do?" and he said something like " i'd be down with that." i don't know im sure it was more romantic but when we got out of the car he said, "hey. Sean loves Chloe." cue sappy love song.
12. Did you get married in a church?
No we got married in the Provo Temple.
13. Do you get flowers often?
Sean gets me flowers every once in a while! he knows the key to my heart is chocolate though. or candy. or a diet dr. pepper with extra ice to give it substance.
14. Where did you go on your honeymoon:
Vegas. but our first night we spent at the Zermatt in Midway.
15. How long did you know each other before you started dating?
well.. like i said earlier.. 6 or 7 years.. but really we didn't know each other that well back then. so i would say we pretty much started dating right when i started work at my job. he was flirting with me at the company luau and he stole my phone and put his number in there as "the man." that night he showed up at my softball game. i wasn't sure if he would even come because he had tons of homework. all the sudden i look out into the stands and he is talking with my parents who he had never met. okay he had met my mom earlier that day at the company luau. but still! i was impressed with his bravery.
16. What do you call each other most of the time?
he calls me chlo-bo. i call him pookie, and seanie.
17.Where do you each work or go to school?
we both work at first colony mortgage and sean goes to school at UVU studying business finance.
18. Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
probably sean being in school. he is soo busy and we hardly get to do anything fun together. its a blessing that we work for the same company, but i miss just hanging out with him at home and goofing off. this semester has been really hard on him. sometimes i miss those days of dating because school never seems like first priority when you are dating.. haha. but it's okay. school is very important and will be worth it.
19. Did you go to the same school?
I went to UVU as well back in the day. we went to different high schools though.
20. Are you from the same home town?
Yes. we are both from Orem!
21. Who is smarter?
me. haha. totally kidding. i don't think i've ever seen anyone answer this and put themselves so i thought it would be funny. but sean for sure. however i had a higher GPA than him in high school and i think a higher ACT score. but sean is a much better college student than i was. i would say i did better in high school and he does way better in college. also, sean knows something about almost everything. cars, tools, loans, math, sports.. you name it he knows it.
22. Who is more sensitive?
23.Where do you eat out most as a couple?
ruby river, red robin, texas roadhouse.
24. What attracted you about him/her first?
his smile. and not his fake one, just his genuine happy, laughing smile. his eyes light up and i love it. also, he is so kind to everyone and always willing to help out. i love that about him.
25. Who is more social?
depends. sean is way good at public speaking and talkin with people that he doesn't know. i am not good at that at all. but i think i can be more social than him at parties and stuff.
26. Who is the neat-freak?
sean for sure. i am terrible. i have put off cleaning our closet since we moved in. its a walk-in closet, and its pretty big. but it was a mess. it drives sean crazy because he has everything sorted by color, fabric type, stripes and solids and whatnot. i have like 5 laundry baskets in there full of clean/dirty clothes. it's all mixed up. hey, i don't like to segregate k? also there is just stuff all over the floor. so anyway i guess i figured if i let it go long enough he would take care of it? guess it worked cuz i came home last saturday and he hung up EVERYTHING. it was awesome. i'm for sure trying that tactic out again.
28. Who hogs the bed?
definitely me. i grew up with a huge bed all to myself after my twin moved to her own room. i love sprawling out. poor sean.
29. Who wakes up earlier?
what is up with these questions? are you trying to make me look like the bad guy? okay it's sean. he wakes up like an hour earlier than me on days we have work at the same time. and then on weekends he wakes up about 6 hours earlier than me. which works out great because i wake up to a very clean house. maybe i am the smarter one?
30. What are HIS favorite things and HER favorite things?
i'm gonna have to go with just loving each other. and listening to what she has to say. haha jk. (name that movie)
sean: sports, guitar, the mountains, pearl jam, meat and potatoes.
chloe: candy, chocolate, sleeping, new clothes, puppies, and going to movies. i LOVE going to see movies on opening night.
