10 Facts About Me and My Better Half

Betty Beguiles inspired me to write this post. You can check out her post here. While you are there please check out the comment box for more fun posts like this one! 

1. We met 20 years ago in high school. I was a freshman, and he was a junior. We talked on the phone every day for six weeks before he asked me to be his girlfriend.

2. He is tall, blond haired and blue-eyed, athletic, a prankster, and obsessed with the news. I am short, have brown eyes and hair, love to sing when no one is listening, very shy, and carry a book everywhere I go.

3. I have lived in the same city all of my life. Chris grew up in a military family and had lived in several states and in Germany before he moved here in high school.

4. I am an only child. He has one brother and three sisters.

5. We got engaged three different times and set three different dates before we finally married.

6. Early in our marriage we had a hot pink Isuzu Amigo. It only had two seats when Chris bought it. We had to buy a back seat so we would have a place for our first son to sit.

7. We bought our first home when Chris was 23 and I was 22. It was a 100 year old farm house, and it needed a ton of work.

8. We both love Mexican food. I love sushi, but Chris refuses to try it.

9. He has a huge sweet tooth, and I love to bake. His favorite desserts are apple cake, apple crisp, banana bread, and oatmeal raisin cookies.

10. We pray for more children daily.

  3. I didn't know #5. Sounds like you should post more about that. Inquiring minds want to know.

  4. I'm married to a Chris also who refuses to try sushi btw. Can't blame him b/c I have no desire to try it.
