Husband Survey

What is his name? Joshua David Porter

How long have you been married? 2 years 6 months and 23 days.

How long did you date? We met Feb. 20, 2005 and our first date was March 4. I was living in Cedar and Josh was going to school at the 'U' so we spent our waking hours on the phone or instant messenger, and any free weekend together. We were officially engaged in April and then married in the St. George temple in August.

How old is he? He just turned 27! He is getting so old! Just kidding!

Who eats more? It depends on what we are eating... Josh eats pasta like nobody's business, but I have eaten a whole large pizza by myself (I don't even want to think about how many ww points that would be!) I hate that Josh can eat and eat and eat and be 5 pounds lighter on the scale, when I gain 5 pounds just by looking at ice cream!

Who said "I love you" first? Josh did... I was a couple of weeks behind him, but as soon as I said it, he was on the computer, applying for SUU

Who is taller? Josh is 6' 5" and I am 5' 10"- I have always been grateful he measures up to my 'Sunday (shoes)' standard!

Who sings better? Josh would say he does... except when it comes to the hymns!

Who is smarter? hmmm. It depends on the situation... that's all I'm going to say!

Whose temper is worse? I would have to say mine is worse, unless Josh has been working with his dad all day!

Who does the laundry? That's my job now. Josh did it the first 6 months of our marriage. (The laundry room was across the parking lot!)

Who does the dishes? Me... and Josh's mom (since we share a kitchen)

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do. We have tried to switch it up a few times when we changed apartments, but since the baby was born, that's my side.

Who pays the bills? Josh has the majority of our marriage, but I have been trying to be more involved, especially since I'm home all day

Who mows the lawn? Josh does. I really don't like to. The house I grew up in has a huge yard...

Who drives when you are together? Josh always does... unless you count my backseat driving :)

Who is more stubborn? We both can be pretty stubborn, but Josh usually gives in first.

Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Um... Josh? I do apologize after I have calmed down...

Whose parents do you see the most? Josh's, since we live with them. I do try to visit my parents on a monthly basis for several days at a time.

Who proposed? Josh did. I knew he had the ring for a long time... he finally popped the question when we were having a picnic at Kodachrome state park (the same place he told me he loved me). He asked "So, how long do you think it took to make these rock formations?" I said, "Probably thousands of years" He replied,"Do you want to be with me that long?" Then he tried to put the ring on the wrong finger... He was so nervous! It was really cute! Joshy, you're the best!

Who has more friends? If you go by Facebook friends, Josh does, because of all his mission friends.

Who has more siblings? I win that one... I'm the oldest of 5 and Josh is the middle child of 3.

Who wears the pants in the family? That would be me! But I do like it when Josh takes charge!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Marriage is so fun, I liked getting a little glimpse into your marriage. Doesn't having a little family of your own make you feel so happy?
