i’m not even going to bother…

…making excuses for my blogging laziness. Yes, I know, it’s been two months since I posted. I’m sorry. ::Hangs head in shame::

To get me back in blogging mode, I’m stealing a meme off of a fun new blog I found, Ashley’s Antics. Ashley is another DC area wedding blogger getting married in October! I’m not going to tag anyone, but feel free to steal it and play along!

So, here we go.

Kate & J

1. What are your middle names? Frances & Daniel

2. How long have you been together? Started dating in September 2006

3. How long did you know each other before you started dating? A few weeks

4. Who asked whom out? He asked me out, but I made the plans!

5. How old are each of you? 27 & 32 (I’ll be 28 by the wedding)

6. Whose siblings do you see the most? Hmmm… we see all of our siblings pretty regularly, every few weeks.

7. Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? J being unemployed sucks.

8. Did you go to the same school? Nope

9. Who is smarter? I’d like to think we’re both pretty smart, in different ways. He’s really good at building things and understanding how things work together. I’m more academic and logical.

10. Who is the most sensitive? I am definitely. He’s pretty sensitive too.

11. Where do you eat out most as a couple? We like ethnic food a lot – Indian, Middle Eastern, Thai… or BBQ. And there’s a little hole in the wall diner about 20 minutes away that we love for brunch on weekends.

12. Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? Costa Rica!

13. Who has the craziest exes? Neither of us has particularly crazy exes.

14. Who has the worst temper? He does. But we can both be pretty hot-headed, especially if we’re hungry!

15. Who does the cooking? Usually it’s about 50/50, but he’s been doing most of it lately, since I have to stay off my bum ankle. (That’s a story for another post).

16. Who is the neat-freak? Him, definitely. He’s been a good influence though. I’m definitely not as messy as I used to be. But he’s still neater.

17. Who is more stubborn? We are both very stubborn. Usually about really dumb things. This is also worse when we’re hungry.

18. Who hogs the bed? He says I do, but that’s only because he comes to bed so late! Obviously I’m going to spread out if I’m sleeping there for three hours alone…

19. Who wakes up earlier? I do during the week, he usually does on weekends.

20. Where was your first date? Meriweather Post Pavillion for Jon Stewart stand-up

21. Who is more jealous? Neither of us is really jealous. Sometimes I get grumpy if I think he’s not spending enough time with me.

22. How long did it take to get serious? After 8 or 9 months we knew we had something good.

23. Who eats more? He does, a lot. The man has the metabolism of a… something with a really fast metabolism. Drives me nuts.

24. Who’s better with the computer? He’s a software developer, so it’s no contest. I can hold my own though.

25. Who drives when you are together? Neither of us particularly likes to drive, so we take turns. He drives more though, because he prefers his car and his car is automatic, which I don’t do.

…aaaaand we’re back! It’s supposed to be 95 in DC tomorrow, so I’ll stay inside with the AC and catch all you nice folks up on what’s been going on with the wedding and other news recently. I hope you haven’t forgotten me!
