us.

1. What are your middle names?

Brad's - Paul/Mine - Nicole

2. How long have you been together?

We've been together since May of 2006...on and off until February of 2008.

3. How long did you know each other before you started dating?

Brad was actually probably my best guy friend for about two years before we started dating. Definitely the way I would recommend doing it.

4. Who asked who out?

I don't think anybody "asked" anybody out. Basically, he kissed me one night in May '06 and the rest is history :)

5. How old are each of you?

Brad just turned 27, I'm 27 - but turning 28 on Wednesday. Sounds so old!

6. Did you go to the same school?

We went to the same college in Minneapolis.

7. Are you from the same home town?

Not at all. I'm from a college town in Illinois, and Brad grew up in the small town that we currently live in.

8. Who is the smartest?

This is a hard question...the answer might depend on the day :) Nah, I would say we each have our strengths in intelligence - Brad is super street smart, and sometimes I feel like he just knows a lot of things that I am clueless about. But as far as book-smart, student-wise, probably me.

9. Who majored in what?

Brad majored in Business Administration, and I majored in Cross Cultural Studies with a minor in Leadership Development. Brad's currently doing construction and I work at a bank...proof that you don't always need a degree.

10. Who is the most sensitive?

Oh, Lord. Me, easily. You should've heard our conversation last night. I was so out-of-sorts with life that Brad ended up laughing at me cause I covered about 76 different things that are currently bothering me.

11. Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?

When I lived in Stockholm last year we visited Sicily and Malaga, Spain together.

12. Who has the worst temper?

That would be me. Brad has the most laid-back personality ever.

13. How many children do you want?

My answer has always been - and still is - as many as the good Lord will give me. I would love to be a foster parent and adopt children, but also want to have my own. Brad's answer is around 4 kids. And he's quick to let you know, NOT FOR TWO YEARS. I always say, "We'll see" with a smile :)

14. Who does the cooking?

Brad's cooking abilities end at putting a frozen pizza in the oven. Does that answer the question?

15. Who is more social?

I think we're pretty even with this one. But in a crowd of strangers, Brad will be the one to make friends before I do.

16. Who is the neat freak?

Yeah, right. I'm actually pretty impressed with the way things are kept up in our home, it wasn't what I expected out of the two of us :)

17. Who is the most stubborn?

Brad. I'm always the first to cave.

18. Who wakes up earlier?

I do. And that's usually after going to bed later. My husband LOVES to sleep.

19. Where was your first date?

Probably to a Minnesota Twins game. I don't think we ever had a "first date" but we had gone to plenty of Twins games by the time we were official.

20. Who has the bigger family?

Brad. He's 1 of 8 kids.

21. Do you get flowers often?

Nope. I actually think the only time he did give me flowers was the night he proposed. They're not my thing, really.

22. How do you spend the holidays?

I'm thinking we'll spend more with his family than mine, since we're right in town with his.

23. Who is more jealous?

Me.

24. How long did it take to get serious?

This should be a blog post in itself! We weren't serious until February 2008.

25. Who eats more?

Brad does...but only because I restrain :) He's not a huge eater, but I always give him big portions.

26. What do you do for a living?

Brad is a self-employed sub-contractor, and he works for his Dad's construction company. I work at a bank as a banker.

27. Who does the laundry?

Me...

28. Who drives when you are together?

Brad always drives when we're together.


29. What is your song?

You know...we don't really have one! I have a million songs that remind me of him, of us...but none that are "our" songs. We danced to "Shelter" by Ray LaMontagne for our first dance...so maybe that one?

Alright...I'd love to see some of my blog friends post this with their answers!!
