I was tagged by Laurie.

What is your husband's name? Geoffrey Stephen Toon

How long have you been together? about 13 years

How long did you date? not long - met June 30 and were in engaged on July 11

Who eats more? it's tie - depends on the food and day

Who said I love you first? hmmm..... tough question - most likely him

Who is taller? he is by about 3-4 inches

Who has more speeding tickets? definately him!

Who is smarter? depends on the subject

Who is more sensitive? depends on the subject - he has a definate soft heart!

Who does the laundry? equally done by both - he's an angel!!

Who does the dishes? equally done by both - I'm so lucky!!!

Who pays the bills? me - he forgets until it's overdue!

Who mows the lawn? the lawn service but we both pull weeds and I plant flowers

Who drives when you are together? msst of the time he does but occasionally he's tired of driving and then I'll drive

Who is more stubborn? depends on the subject

Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? he's the silent type when he's upset so I usually admit it to smooth things over and get him talking (even when I'm not wrong)

Who's parents do you see more often? mine - we get together every Fast Sunday and holiday

Who has more siblings? me - there are 6 in my family and 4 in his

Who wears the pants in the family? um.... both of us!

Who eats more sweets? gosh - we both like them but don't dwell on them

His guilty pleasures? Dr. Pepper and flavored tootsie rolls, any sports game and horror flicks

How did you meet? Readers Digest version - I was a traveling companion for Miss Maricopa County and his parents were the Executive Directors for the Miss Arizona Pageant (Miss America system). I was there with my girl and he was there as 'slave labor' for his parents. I thought he was adorable and set my goal to talk to him by the end of the week. It worked, even though he was as shy as they came then and it took an army of about 5 people helping me to get him to break out and say hi back.

Who asked who out first? He called and asked me out for dinner and a movie

Who kissed who first? I tried. Believe me - I tried! He was determined to wait until it "felt right" and although he was a NCMO (non-committal make-out) back then, he took FOREVER to finally kiss me! So...He did!

Who proposed? we talked about getting married so non-challantly that there was never an official proposal until after we designed the ring, picked the date and started the plans. We picked up the ring and I made him ask me before he put the ring on. :) It was just 'meant to be'.

Best feature? He is just handsome! Dark hair, dark eyes, strong hands, beautiful lip shape!

Best personality trait? He is such a softie! He LOVES newborn babies and is such a 'daddy' with all he holds!

Pet names? GEE-OFF, honeybun, sweetie, hubby

Where do I see us in 15 years? gosh - our baby will be 22 yrs, so hopefully enjoying retirement TOGETHER!! We LOVE time alone and the days that he is home with me - LOVE IT!

What is my favorite thing about him? Geoff is a dreamer like myself. We love to sit around, cuddling and dream of the future (even imaginary future). We have the same goals and want nothing in life but to enjoy our kids, enjoy each other and have enough money to make it along the way. No need for frivolous things, yet we both love to spoil our kids. A day at home with each other is the best. He uses any opportunity to teach our kids a gospel or life principal. There are times I hear him teaching in a situation that I would've never seen! He is an incredible husband and father!!

I tag anyone who wishes! But let me know so I can read it!!
