One Year Later

Well, today marks our first year wedding anniversary! We made it! ;)  I thought it would be fun to answer some questions. Some will share our story, some will let you know more about us individually, and some will let us know more about each other :) My answers will be written in purple, his answers will be written in blue, if we answered together or had the same answer, it will be written in green. I'm hoping the colors make it easier, and not more complicated :P 

1. Where was your first kiss?
In his car :) 
2. When did you first know you were in love? 
I don't remember exactly where we were or what we were doing, but I do remember just looking at him across the room and thinking, "I am so lucky he is mine", and in that moment I just knew. 
I realized that I was in love with Tyler when I started missing her the second I left her.  It was also when I opened myself up to her and she accepted me for who I am as a person.
3. How did your family react when they found out you were getting married?
Both sides thought we were too young, but we made our decision and we were fortunate enough to have most people support us, even if they didn't agree :) 
4. Who is better at managing your finances?
I am :P I'm a better organizer, so it works.
Let's just say I'd have nothing without her. ;)
5. Who controls the remote? 
I do ;) For the most part though, we enjoy most of the same shows, so it usually doesn't cause too many problems! 
I do...it's her shows though.
6. Who's the better driver?
She is...I get anxiety in certain situations
7. Who's the faster driver?
Definitely him. // Me! Woohoo!
8. Who is most likely to eat dessert for breakfast?
Probably me! I firmly believe a slice of cake or cupcake is perfectly acceptable for breakfast ;)
Probably her, I have had my fair share of cake and ice cream for breakfast though.
9. Who will be doing most of the yard work?
Totally him. I am not great with power tools, or bugs :P
Definitely me.  Hammers scare her, so lawn mowers and other yard tools wouldn't go over well.
10. Who is usually the first to fall asleep at night?
He is. It takes me awhile to fall asleep! 
Me most nights, I can get in the perfect position next to her that has the same effect as a sleeper hold.
11. Who steals the covers more?
Me, I won't even try to deny it haha. 
Her! Total cover hog...
12. Who's most likely to use up all the hot water?
He is. I shower really quickly. 
Me, I do my best thinking in the shower!
13. Who's most likely to get lost?
Him for sure. 
I got lost at the mall shopping for her Christmas present last year...so me.
14. Who's most likely to ask for directions?
I am... I'd rather ask for directions then wasting time searching myself! 
Her, who needs directions with a smartphone?!
15. What is the first thing your spouse would buy if you won the lottery?
His dream car! // A ship for Sea Shepherd. 
16. Where would your spouse want to go on a dream vacation? 
To a few countries in Europe. 
She honestly has so many...Bahamas, Belize, Italy.  She would be perfectly content spending the rest of her life traveling if I let her. :P
17. What charity is your spouse most likely to raise money for? 
Sea Shepherd. It's an organization we both hold very close to our hearts.
If I won the lottery I'd give as much as The Husband would allow, to Sea Shepherd. They do some amazing things in saving our planet, and I'd love to help and support Captain Paul Watson as much as I could. And The Husband is right, I'd buy them another ship, but they would have to name the ship what I wanted ;) 
18. How many kids do you want?
Ideally, 2! // 4, no exceptions. ;)
19. If your house was on fire and you had a chance to grab only 5 things, what would they be?
Other than making sure everyone got out safely, probably my phone, camera, our plastic tub of scrapbooks, a baggie that holds all of our important USBs in it (photos and music files mostly). And my wedding ring.. I don't sleep with it on, is that weird? I just don't want to scratch my face :P 
My wife, my wedding ring and whatever she needs help with.  I'm not very materialistic when it comes down to my home burning down.
20. What is your dream job and why? 
Being a mom. Throwing birthday parties for our kids, and taking them to sports practice just sounds like so much fun. I can't wait. 
Being a world famous artist.  That would be sweeeeeeet, but totally unrealistic.
21. If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a dolphin, because dolphins are intelligent and beautiful in every single way. 
A panda bear...pandas are cool.
22. If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why? 
Anywhere? I'd love to live in a nice house on the beach in Belize ;)
See answer above^^ :D
23. If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
Hands down, Paul Watson. He is my inspiration and hero. And I would honestly just love to hear his stories and thank him for everything he's done to help save whales and dolphins. 
Johnny Cash, the man went through a whole lot in his life, but it still would be nice to just hang out with him and listen to his stories. 
24. Describe your perfect house.
Oh my gosh there are WAY too many things to describe. I think I am going to be really picky.. and we might have to build or totally remodel :P I want an amazing basement though, and kitchen :) With my kids and their friends running around. 
The american dream home.  Shutters and paneling on the outside, white picket fence, the works.  Either that or a plantation home.
25. Do you believe in soul mates?
No.. I believe that people have other people they are supposed to be with, but as far as one person for every one person? I don't think so.. 
Maybe not necessarily "soul mates" but definitely someone that was predetermined for you to be with.  I guess that is basically a soul mate though....soooo Yes?
26. Do you believe in love at first sight?
No, I don't. I think you can have a connection at first sight. But love? No. 
No, you can't fall in love with someone without knowing who they are.  
27. What is your favorite holiday? 
Christmas :)
