Happy Valentine's Day! DH and I didn't really do anything this year as far as spending money goes since we are in the process of buying our first home (YAY!), and I have felt pretty narly also. It must be something about the 9 week/10 week mark because others have told me that's when the nausea and pukiness is the worst. I guess they were right. But we have enjoyed just hanging out together today. :)
Also, we thought it would be fun to fill out a Valentine's Survey separately, then compare the answers. I was very surprised at how similar some of our answers were. :D It was so much fun I thought I would share it with you. I found the survey on a random blog yesterday.
What couple from a movie or TV show are you most like?:
Sara: Hmm...I think we are a lot like the couple from A Walk to Remember...or maybe the one in You’ve Got Mail. :)
Paul: Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan
Do you have a song?:
What is it?:
Sara: “Look After You” by The Fray
Paul: "I'll look after you" by the Fray
First movie you saw together in the theatre:
Sara: With friends, we watched Pirates of the Caribbean 2. Alone, I can’t remember...something like Transformers I think.
Paul: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Who said “I Love You” first?
Sara: He did!
Paul: Me! =D
Where do you eat out at most as a couple?
Sara: We don’t eat out much. We love Red Lobster though. :)
Paul: Red Lobster
Who is better at handling money?
Sara: I’d say him for sure, but I’m getting better.
Paul: Me :)
What was the first meal that your wife ever cooked for you?
Sara: The first meal I ever cooked for him was when we were dating. I came back from Mexico and threw him an awesome birthday party with friends, but before seeing friends I cooked a romantic authentic Mexican dinner. :) As his wife, I don’t remember the first.
Paul: Bowtie Pasta with Chicken Alfredo and Asparagus
If your spouse was a cartoon character, which one would he/she be?
Sara: I’d say Mickey Mouse. :-P
How many boyfriends/girlfriends did your spouse have before you?
Sara: Maybe 2, depending on how you define it, but technically just 1.
Paul: 3 (that I know of, haha)
What is your idea of a perfect date?
Sara: I’ve always wanted to eat dinner on the beach and wear a gorgeous white sundress. But for any time, something adventurous or romantic or both.
Paul: hmm, surprising Sara with a wonderful massage, manicure and pedicure. Dining at a 5 star restaurant with a 3 course meal, then watching the final Harry Potter movie (with no nude scene) with popcorn (extra butter) and soft drinks. Followed by a long, slow walk down a beautiful beach. =D
What physical feature first attracted you to your spouse?
Sara: It was his heart that attracted me to him first before anything. It wasn’t until a lot later I was attracted to him physically, even though he was super cute.
Paul: Her eyes, followed closely by her smile.
Where was your first date?
Sara: Well, our first non-official date was to the zoo. Our first real date was to Johnny Carinos, a movie (Harry Potter and Order of the Pheonix), and Starbucks.
Paul: Johnny Carinos
What is your spouses favorite show?
Sara: He doesn’t watch t.v. that much. I’d say anything with football or sports. He likes Man vs. Wild and Mythbusters. Anything manly, lol.
Paul: Iron Chef on Food Network
What is your favorite show?
Sara: Iron Chef America!
Paul: LSU football!!!
What is your dating anniversary?
Sara: Official = July 14th, 2007
Paul: July 14th
If you could go anywhere on a second honeymoon, where would you go?
Sara: We both really want to go to Ireland/Scotland.
What surprised you about your spouse after marriage?
Sara: Nothing really surprised me about him. What you see is what you get with Paul. He is the easiest person to live with!
Paul: Just how much she really loved me. When I deployed after we got married, she wrote me a letter every single day I was gone. :)
What's the best thing about being married to your spouse?
Sara: I live with my very best friend and it’s wonderful. I love sharing life with him and loving him. I love his warmth and his caring and funny personality. Its just so nice to be able to have someone there for you that you can completely trust and turn to.
Paul: BEING LOVED! The fulfillment she gives me in life. Going through life single, I believe, lacks the companionship of sharing intimate times and “milestones” throughout life with someone. The joys we are able to share together: having our first child, buying our first home.
