The Goods on the Hubby
His Name - Bill Shaver
How long have we been married - 15 years Oct. 17, 2007
How long did we Date? From the day we met to the day we got married it was 1 and 1/2 years. He proposed after 2 months, but I told him we need to weather each season dating first before making that leap, plus it took my Mom a year to pull the wedding of HER dreams together.
How old is he? 44 almost
How old am I? 40 in June YAHOOOO!
Who eats more sweets? Definitely him... I think he has a monthly cycle. He craves candy bars once per month. hee hee. I am definitely a salty food junkie.
Who said I love you First - Him. I couldn't say it for months and months. I'm not a really romantic type girl. Even after we were married, I wouldn't let him call me his wife. It freaked me out. So here we are on our Honeymoon in Jamaica, and he kept wanting to introduce me and I would just jut out my hand and say... I'm Saundra.
Who is taller? Him, he is 6'2, I am 5'6".
Who can sing better? me... and I can't carry a tune, so imagine how awful he is!!! haahahaha
Who is smarter? He would say me, but I say him. We are both pretty smart cookies.
Who does laundry? me
Who does the dishes? The kids, I haven't emptied a dishwasher in years!
Who pays the bills? I used to for the first 8 years and our pastor said something about letting the man be the man and the true head of the household, and to give up things we "think" he can't handle, so I gave them all to him, and I haven't been happier. He's good at it, he has owned his own house since he was 19, he's very astute. We both make decisions concerning money together, he's a spender, I'm more of a tightwad.
His guilty pleasure? He would say he doesn't have one because he is a working slave all the time... but I would say his guilty pleasure is really violent video games. He knows I HATE them and I have found a few in his computer bag when he asks me to get something out of it for him.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Me
Who mows the lawn? Our gardener, of course!
Besides me, who is his best friend... Danny and Carlos
Who cooks dinner?- me, but him on occasion
Who drives? Mostly him, but his commute is 2 hours, sometimes more, one way... so sometimes he is just too tired to drive and he wants me too.
Who asked who out first- We were set up by my Mama, but after we met, he asked me out again.
What was our first date - We saw "Silence of the Lambs" and had dinner at my mom's.
Who proposed- I don't know if he did or not. We were at dinner one night and he asked me what kind of wedding I would want to have when I got married... so i got a napkin and planned it all out... after dinner, I asked him if we just planned our wedding and he said"Yeah, I think we did" I didn't care about a ring. I knew I would get one eventually. We started planning that next week, my mom went into hyper speed, and about 4 months before the wedding he gets on one knee with my ring in a box and asks me to marry him. I, of course, say "Dude, My wedding gown is being picked up next week, do you really think the answer is gonna be "no"?. Yeah, I know... romantic.
Who has more siblings - He has one sister, I have one brother, same, same.
Who wears the pants- I will just say "him' to keep the peace. How's that for an answer.
My favorite thing about him? Ask me another day... I am very upset with him this week.
