my Rob

Lindsay tagged me to write about my Rob. :)

What's his name? Robert Nichols.

How long have you been married? 2 1/2 years in April (on Rob's birthday.)

How long did you date? umm... 1 month and 1 day until we were officially engaged. :)

How old is he? 31 and 11.5/12ths.

Who eats more? Usually Rob, but a pregnant woman is an interesting thing.

Who is taller? Rob is 6' 6"... I am not taller than that!

Who said 'I love you' first? Rob told me on our first date, "I think I'm falling in love with you." It took me a date or two to catch up. I don't remember who actually said 'I love you' first, but by then the feeling was definitely mutual.

Who does the laundry? Mostly I do, because I'm home.

Who does the dishes? Again, mostly I do because I'm here but Rob usually does on the weekends to give me a break.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Currently, I do, but we've gone back and forth depending on where the door is... so I can get up during the night without killing myself.

Who cooks dinner? Usually I do, but 'curry night' is all Rob.

Who sings better? Rob has a beautiful voice and I wish that I could get him to sing more often!

Who drives when you are together? Usually Rob.

Who is more stubborn? Oh, we're pretty evenly matched on stubbornness... luckily, we usually see eye to eye on things or we decide who the issue is more important to.

Who is smarter? Rob is definitely smarter than I am in bookish areas, but maybe I make up for it a little in 'mechanical' abilities. At least I can say now that I have finally beat him fair and square at Scrabble!

Who kissed who first? Umm... we were both participants. :)

Who asked who out first? Rob was in Iceland and I was in Utah on seperate vacations. When Rob got home he called me in Utah and asked if he could pick me up at the airport and said, "I think we need to date. How do you feel about that?" I felt pretty good about it.

Who proposed? Rob did. We picked out the ring together and he had it for like a week!!! Everywhere we went, I thought 'is he going to propose now? here?' Anyway, when he finally did it was at Bombay Peacock and it was perfect.

Who is more sensitive? Hmm that's a tough one... HA! I am, by about a mile.

Who has more friends? We don't have a ton of friends that we hang out with, but I keep in touch with more of my old roommates and friends for sure.

Who has more siblings? Rob is the oldest of 7.

Who wears the pants in the family? We both wear pants, but sometimes I wear skirts. hee hee Okay... I think we try to make decisions together.

What is your favorite thing about him? Wow, there really are many... I love that Rob and I are both 'serious,' but when we are together we are completely silly. I love how he tells stories with 83 tangents. I love his brown eyes and how he laughs at my dumb jokes. Hmmm, I have to go kiss him now. ;)

So now I want to see answers from Brandy V., Kristen J., and Becca A. Or anyone else that wants to.

okay, this really threw me! It sounds like Julie is saying that they got married in April on Rob's birthday. I was really confused, but what she is really saying is that their half-anniversary mark is April 8, since they got married on October 8. Kind of cool.
