Blah blah blah.

Happy Thursday, my friends! It's almost the weekend!!! Excitement! :) I, for one, am ready to SLEEP IN past when the sun rises. Every day has gotten more and more difficult, and that's just not any fun.

I'm not feeling very creative today, and I have quite a bit of work to do, so I'm going to do this fun little relationship survey dealy I have seen on several other blogs. Enjoy!

♥ What are your middle names? Marie and Michael. I dropped Marie when we got married, though, and I still miss it. :( My middle name is now my maiden name, Liberson.

♥ How long have you been together? 3.5 years total, married for almost 10 months.

♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating? We really didn't. We met on a blind date and were pretty much inseperable from that day on.

♥ Who asked whom out? Matt asked me out. Our mutual friends, Jenn and Ryan, had spoken to me about him several times - we both lived in DC, so they thought Matt and I should meet. But when I discovered that Matt was a bomb tech in the Army, I wasn't thrilled...I didn't really feel like getting involved with somebody who blows stuff up for a living. But one day, I had an email from him in my inbox, and we made plans for dinner, and...you know what they say. The rest is history.

♥ Whose siblings do/did you see the most? Definitely his, mostly because they just live around 20 minutes away. Oh, and also, I don't actually have any siblings. :)

♥ Do you have any children together? Not yet!

♥ What about pets? Our hairy furbaby, Oscar. Oscar is a 3 y/o Siberian Husky/Australian Shepherd mix. He is the BEST.

♥ Did you go to the same school? No. As I'm sure you are all well aware of, I went to the University of Michigan for undergrad and grad school. Matt went to Belmont University in Nashville for undergrad, and is going to Indiana University now for grad school.

♥ Who is the smartest? I'm smarter when working with people, and Matt's smarter when arguing. :) He has a degree in philosophy, for better or worse...

♥ Who is more sensitive? Definitely me!

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple? We don't eat out very much anymore, which is a bummer. In DC/Alexandria, our fave spot was sushi at Yamazato. We also loved Southside 818 for ribs and bbq and whatnot. Yummy! Here in Bloomington, we have had sushi at Japanee (no website) a few times, and we love Farm Bloomington - delish!

♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? We went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon last November.

♥ Who has the craziest exes? Who knows. I'd say me, but Matt has never told me anything about his exes, ever! So who really knows?!

♥ Who has the worst temper? Matt. It's not so much a temper, but he can be really moody.

♥ Who does the cooking? Me! I love to cook and I do it pretty much every day. Matt will cook once in a blue moon if we're craving one of his special dishes (i.e. casseroles!).

♥ Who is more social? Definitely me.

♥ Who is the neat-freak? Definitely NOT me. Matt is way neater than I am!

♥ Who is more stubborn? Both of us! But I think Matt might win out a little bit. Not sure though.

♥ Who hogs the bed? Sometimes me, sometimes him. Lately, he's been taking over my side of the bed whenever I get up to pee. Then I have to deal with him kneeing me in the leg as I huddle on the edge of my side. Not fun.

♥ Who wakes up earlier? I always wake up first. On the weekends, I often wake up a good hour or so before Matt, and I curl up on the couch and read.

♥ Where was your first date? Yamazato sushi and spice in Alexandria, VA. Exactly two years later, that's where we got engaged, as well!

♥ Who has the bigger family? Definitely Matt! He has four older sisters, 8 nieces and nephews, and lots of aunts and uncles and cousins. I am an only child, and have a grand total of two aunts and two uncles. And 5 cousins.

♥ Do you get flowers often? Shortly after we started dating, Matt surprised me with flowers at work - a big bouquet of sunflowers. And then for Valentine's Day 2008, Matt was out of the country for work and he again sent me flowers to work. Those are my only flowers so far...they may be few and far between, but they have always been so, so special.

♥ How do you spend the holidays? With family.

♥ Who is more jealous? Neither of us are jealous...we know we have nothing to worry about!

♥ How long did it take to get serious? We were really serious right from the start, but it took awhile to say the big L word. 8 months, to be exact!

♥ Who eats more? Matt.

♥ Who does/did the laundry? We each do our own laundry, for now at least!

♥ Who’s better with the computer? Usually me. Despite the fact that Matt is good with bombs, he is terrible with technology.

♥ Who drives when you are together? We trade off.

Well, that was kind of fun. I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our super boring lives! :)

I love this. And I love that we share the same middle name. Even though you dropped it on your ID when you changed your name ... it will still always be your name!
