Only Because It Is Lesley's Blogiversary


Relationship meme:

I'm assuming you mean my husband and I... 'cause the Henry and Stephanie relationship is actually much more complicated.

1. Where did you meet?
Mr Happy and I met at his parents dining room table. His parents had invited my roommates and I over for Easter dinner. His dad is a Baptist minister, so he was forever bringing home people to dinner - new people in the community, diplomats, singletons, homeless people, college students who hadn't seen a vegetable in months...

2. How long did you date?
We dated for two and a half years.

3. How old is he?
Almost 39. Gasp.

4. Who eats more?
He does.

5. Who said “I love you” first?
I really can't remember. A year or so into our relationship we both confessed that at the end of our first date, we had an overwhelming urge to say, "I love you." We didn't even kiss each other good night, but we just knew. Awwwwwww.

6. Who is taller?
Well, I'm only three apples tall, so it doesn't take much to be taller than me.

7. Who sings better?
Him. If you need evidence, pick up a cd.

8. Who is smarter?
Um... We both have degrees that neither of us are using. So I don't think that either of us are really all that "smart" some days. We're both smart in our own way. I'm book smart, but he is hands-on smart. He can fix things, make things, record horrible singers and make them sound good... and he has all these weird random facts in his head that freak me out.

9. Whose temper is worse?
Me. And it ain't pretty.

10. Who does the laundry?
Me. Many moons ago someone shrunk my favourite grey cardigan. He does hang out, fold and put away, but I'm captain of the laundry squad. (Don't tell anyone, but I kind of enjoy doing laundry.)

11. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Him. But we used to sleep on opposite sides when we were first married. I don't know why or when we switched.

12. Who pays the bills?
Both of us.

13. Who cooks dinner?
Usually me b/c Mr. Happy works late most nights, and by late I mean 1am and beyond. But if he's home, we make supper together.

14. Who drives when you are together?
Him - because I like to knit or shout random things like, "Slow down!", "What are you doing?", "Ack, do you have to turn like that?", "It's 50km/hr here!"
He loves it when I do that. And I know he doesn't drive nearly as well when I'm not in the car. Heh heh.

15. Who is more stubborn?

16. Who kissed whom first?
He kissed me. And then he sat back and promptly banged his head on a windowsill.

17. Who is the first to admit to being wrong?
We don't usually have those "I'm right and you're wrong" arguments.

18. Whose parents do you see the most?
His. My dad and SM live almost 5 hours away.

19. Who proposed?
He did. The night before our wedding. And no, we didn't elope. We had 160+ people attending. It's a cute story. Maybe I'll tell you some time.

20. What’s his best physical attribute?
His ocean eyes...

21. Who has more friends?
I'm not sure. He knows WAY more people in town b/c of his business, but I get to hang out with my friends more than he does.

22. What are you most proud of him for?
For his awesome songwriting skills and for writing and recording a song about us.

23. Who has more siblings?
We're even at one.

24. Who wears the pants in the family?
There are no pants. It's all about comfy pajamas at our house.

I will tag no one... but if you want to do this meme, it's all yours.


  1. Thank you Steph :)

  2. ok I'll bite....
