Man, Oh Man!

Sunni tagged me for this:

The Game of Tag about your MAN

1. Who is your man? Curtis Wayne
2. How long have you been together? We fell in love 7 years ago and have been married for 5.
3. How long did you date? We dated for 10 months before we got engaged. We were engaged for 14 months, which I do not recommend. What can I say? We were dating long distance and he wanted to get a ring on my finger quick.
4. How old is your man? 26
5. Who eats more? I think Curtis eats more, but he is way more likely to order a salad for his meal at a restaurant than I am. It's quite embarrassing when the server brings our food and tries to give me the salad. When I correct him and say, "No, I had the chicken fried steak," it's just a wrong. Don't be fooled because Curtis often orders double cheeseburgers or sometimes extra fries at fast food joints.
6. Who said "I love you" first? Curtis made me be the one to say it first, although he slipped up and almost said it in a phone message once. He had never said "I love you" to any other girl except for some lame chick in jr. high who doesn't really count. So sweet!
7. Who is taller? He is one inch taller than me, but I usually look taller because I wear heels. He doesn't care though.
8. Who sings better? He does. I love it when he makes up funny songs with the guitar.
9. Who is smarter? Hmmmm. In the realm of theology and ministry? Curtis. In your classic academic areas, I definitely cared much more about that than he did. His sister is brilliant, so who knows what he would have achieved in school if he had cared about what he was learning.
10. Whose temper is worse? Definitely mine. Curtis is the most even-tempered person I know.
11. Who does the laundry? Generally, he does his own and I do mine and Jackson's.
12. Who takes out the garbage? Curtis Wayne.
13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do. When we moved in I was 8 months pregnant and getting up 5 times in the night to use the restroom. That side of the bed was the closest to it.
14. Who pays the bills? Curtis, only because one of us HAS TO and I freak out every time I look at a bank statement. He wishes he didn't have to.
15. Who is better with the computer? I type faster but he is amazing at all the Mac programs and graphics stuff.
16. Who mows the lawn? Thank You, Lord, it's Curt. I hope to make it off the face of this green earth without ever having mowed it.
17. Who cooks dinner? I present Curtis with the Lean Cuisine choices so that he can pick which one he wants, and then I warm it up. When we eat real food, I cook it unless it's tacos. Curtis makes great tacos.
18. Who drives when you are together? Usually Curtis. Sometimes I can get Curt to put Jackson in his car seat if I volunteer to drive. I get so tired of wrestling my child in there!
19. Who pays when you go out? Whoever is not wrangling the boy at the moment the check arrives.
20. Who is most stubborn? I would love to know the Lord's answer to this. I think it's a tie.
21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Probably me since I am a more sensitive person.
22. Whose parents do you see the most? Mine, but Curt isn't with me very often when I go home to see them. It's hard for ministers to travel on weekends. We love that when we see his family (who lives 7 hours away), we often spend more than a couple of days with them.
23. Who kissed who first? It was both of us at the same time. We had just had a snowball fight in his front yard.
24. Who asked who out? We were set up by friends and then our dating relationship occurred within a summer-long internship program. I guess it was him because he kept asking me to run errands with him during the mission trip we were working. So our first "dates" were to the Super Walmart. We went to the bowling alley for our first real date. And that is where I beat him and he regretted ever taking me there.
25. Who proposed? He proposed to me in a park on a beautiful Friday afternoon in April 2001.
26. Who is more sensitive? I affectionately refer to my husband as Stonehenge, so that would be me.
27. Who has more friends? Me.
28. Who has more siblings? We each have a younger sister.
29. Who wears the pants in the family? Curtis, and he looks real good in them. I love you, Hubs!

I tag Kay and Amber because we were all serving together that amazing summer when the Lord introduced me to the love of my life.

"Stonehenge" cracked me up.

And I think that D. may have him a new nickname. :-)

Teri said...

I was just wondering about the 14 month engagement...was it too long or too short? (All you said was that you wouldn't recommend it.)

CrownLaidDown said...

Wow, I enjoyed learning that about Curt and you, Amanda! How fun it is that God created us all different and no two couples are the same.

I especially like your chicken fried steak one :) That's a girl!
Have a blessed evening...praying for your Bible study and family.

Amanda said...

14 months was too long for sure!

Suzi said...

We were engaged 12mo. and I agree that it was way too long!

My hubby is good at eating his salad. I would much rather order a big loaf of white bread;) Then the brisket, beans and potatoes!

A Place For Ministry Wives said...

The Super Wal-mart date...too much!

Big Mama said...

I, too, am married to a Stonehenge.

Little Steps Of Faith said...

Oh I hope Jesus gives me a man I can say things about:)

By the way, the blog I wanted you to see is:

Ur invited.

Teri said...

That is what I was thought! I agree! My husband and I dated (long distance) for six months and had an eleven month engagement! We made it, but it was so hard that we had to stop kissing about six weeks before the wedding! (It sure made the kiss on the altar pretty special!) Three kids and almost thirteen years later, all is well!

#9 & #11 would have been sufficient answers for my own questionnaire! So fun :)

willblogforshoes said...

Wow! We have so much in common. I laughed out loud at #5. We have that same problem... if I had a nickel for every time we had to switch plates after the server brought us our food...:-)

Jungle Mom said...

Maybe I'll do this next week! It is fun to learn about people this way!

Abby said...

5)it's nice to know there are other girls who are not the "i'll just have a salad" type...bring me some real food!!
16)i actually like to mow the lawn! weird! my dad always had me and my brother doing yard work growing up..we actually would fight over who got to do it!

praying for one of these sweet men one day!! :)

Sunni at The Flying Mum said...

Stonehenge...that's comedy, man!

Allison said...

He's a great one!

Patty said...

"Stonehenge" was so funny! I am glad to see you weren't afraid to order the chicken fried steak! :o)
My son is dating a sweet girl but she doesn't eat. We grilled steaks for my birthday and she said the steak I bought her was to big and my son had to go buy her a little round filet of something. The girl needs to eat. I enjoyed reading your list!
Have a wonderful weekend. By the way, how is Curtis doing on his Fantasy Football picks?

Lindsee said...

So cute!! I have loved reading all these "husband" surveys. They are all just precious!

Marla Taviano said...

That was fun! You're married to a Mac guy, too, huh?

connorcolesmom said...

Love the list and love the men that God has given us!!
