25 Couples questions.

I saw this questionnaire on Rhonda's Blog and felt that you may want to know some stuff about our relationship as I tend to make this blog more about me and it's actually about us, so here goes....

♥ What are your middle names? Therese and Thomas
♥ How long have you been together? 8 years March 19th, married 5 years April 28
♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating? We worked together for 6 mths before we started dating, we both in relationships prior to that
♥ Who asked who out? Chris asked me out to a movie in a few days and then once I said yes he came back and asked for a dinner date the next evening
♥ Whose siblings do you see the most? Mine, but we would like to see his more often
♥ Do you have any children together? Not yet, as you all know we are waiting for to see our future son.
♥ What about pets? We have three Furkids, Jake (hound x, 7yrs), Maddux (Golden Retriever, 5 1/2 yrs), Ziggy (Shitz Poo, 2 1/2 yrs), they are currently our kids and we wonder all the time how we will all adjust to a new addition. Chris and I are definitely ready for the challenge but are they?
♥ Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? So far, Adoption, I figured nothing could beat infertility, I was wrong. I have the strongest husband in the world but i'm a total wreck.
♥ Did you go to the same school? I wish, I heard he was quite the guy back then as well
♥ Are you from the same home town? Same City area but different little towns, 10 min away
♥ Who is the smartest? I would say Chris for sure. Not that i'm not smart, just in different ways, so if we are talking information smart he is the one, he knows all kinds of stuff that I would never even care to know about
♥ Who is the most sensitive? Hands down I win this one. I have never seen a bride cry as much as I did on our wedding date. I'm the worse when it comes to the baby issue.
♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple? We tend to have variety, but our favorite is Deluxe (the best burger joint in town, if you are ever in Sudbury you MUST TRY the chicken on a bun dinner and fries)
♥ Who has the craziest ex? Our last ex was 8 yrs ago so really our ex's are done and in the past.
♥ Who has the worst temper? Chris has little patience with small things like cooking, renovating ect... but with everything else I would have to win this one too....i'm so lucky today.
♥ Who does the cooking? We both do the cooking but he is so much better at it, I just love cooking and baking, especially for company.
♥ Who is more social? That would be me, Chris is a man of few words.
♥ Who is the neat-freak? I would say Chris is more than I am, it bothers him more if things are messy.
♥ Who is the more stubborn? Me, again...
♥ Who hogs the bed? The dogs, we just kind of fit in there somewhere, however i always stay in the same spot and he is all over the bed.
♥ Who wakes up earlier? it used to be Chris but now it's me, I think he's becoming a teenager again, sleeping in till 10am
♥ Where was your first date? Pat and Mario's Restaurant, the only time I ever seen Chris leave food on his

♥ Do you get flowers often? Yes, he gets them for me for just nothing which is always nice.
♥ How do you spend the holidays? With my family
♥ Who is more jealous? I would say me, but i'm not really jealous, I just don't think he is at all.
♥ How long did it take to get serious? about 1 date...
♥ Who eats more? I eat more often, he eats more in one far
♥ Who does/did the laundry? Chris does all the laundry all the time, that is what he does on his days off.... I know i'm so lucky. I just have to put it away.
♥ Who’s better with the computer? Me.
♥ Who drives when you are together? about 50/50 all depends on which vehicle we are driving. My car I drive, his truck he drives.

Best Surprise ever.

So I get a ticket in my mail box the other day to go pick up a package at the post office. I just ordered pics online and thought it was the pictures so I didn't rush over. Well to my surprise, I get there today and get this super wonderful thoughtful beautiful precious amazing gift from a super wonderful amazing adoptive mother. This is an adoptive mother I have yet to speak to, we have only communicated online, however I have felt a huge connection to her since the very first email. (I will be speaking to her on the phone this evening...just in case you were wondering). She seems like such an amazing person, that has alot in common with me. Unfortunately she lives a few provinces away and I can't meet with her....for now anyways. I can't write who it is or show you what I received yet as there was a note to wait until after next months secret pal gift exchange... but I had to post that I'm completely surprised, feel so much love inside to know someone I haven't met yet thinks so much of me to do this for me and just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH. I can't wait to talk to you.

One good part of this adoption is the wonderful friends I have made and feel blessed to have met in the adoption community, although in cyberspace, for the most part. These are friendships that will grow as each of us brings home our little ones and I cherish each and every one of you.

I thank you again for being so thoughtful and caring. This gift means alot more to me than you can ever imagine....(Thanks insert name here)

PS.... I promise to share with you all this wonderful surprise once i'm allowed.
