So my sister-in-law Jessie tagged me with this a while back, but I didn't know what some of the exact questions were and wanted to wait until I did. Well, a couple of my other sisters-in-law, Lori and Cassie, did this same little questionnaire yesterday, so I am finally doing it. :)

See if you can guess our answer before you read it.

1. What is his full name? (I assume they're asking about Chris)

Christopher Louis Burkman.

2. How long have you been married?

2 years, 6 months, 3 days and counting.

3. How long did you date?

This is a tricky one. I guess we technically dated about 4 months (including our engagement) but the whole process was a little over two years start to finish.

4. Who eats more?

Chris could definitely eat more but we usually eat about the same amount.

5. Who said I love you first?

I did although Chris tries to claim this one for himself (even though he knows it isn't true)

6. Who has more speeding tickets?

This is easy: Chris! I haven't had any (knock on wood)

7. Who is smarter?

I'm smarter but I know better than to admit that (it'd hurt his feelings) so Chris is DEFINITELY smarter.

8. Who is more sensitive?

Chris is a crybaby, but he doesn't like people to know. So, I'm the more sensitive one. Chris is too manly to be sensitive.

9. When there is a fight who usually wins?

Depends on the fighting style. In boxing, Chris has the edge (longer arms) but if we're thumb-wrestling, I'll win every time (Chris has stubby, sausage thumbs and I have monkey fingers; it's not even close).

10. Who does the laundry?


11. Who does the dishes?

Again, Maria.

12. Who sleeps on the right?

Maria. Just kidding. Facing the bed, I sleep on the right, cats on the left and Chris on the floor, but he usually sneaks into the left side of the bed after I fall asleep.

13. Who pays the bills?

Nobody really does. Repo-man will sooner or later, I'm sure. But when we absolutely have to pay, Chris takes care of it.

14. Who mows the lawn?

Good question, probably somebody in our HOA. We haven't lived here long enough to actually see the grass... just snow. Stupid, stupid snow, so we may not even have grass.

15. Who cooks dinner?

Since Carter hasn't mastered this one quite yet, Chris does most of the cooking cause he's obsessed with it and he's home during the day. I'll throw something together when Chris is feeling too lazy, which actually ends up being like 4 days a week. So, in conclusion, we both cook.

16. Who drives when you are together?

Chris usually drives because he's a baby and gets carsick too easy.

17. Who is more stubborn?

This is 50-50 but Chris usually wins an argument cause he just keeps at it if he's losing, adding all sorts of tangents that don't have anything to do with anything. I get so riled up that I end up quitting the argument by ignoring him altogether.

18. Who kissed who first?

Chris kissed first. Her name was Kristi. It was sometime in the 90's. But if you're talking about me and Chris, we usually start kissing at the same time. If one of us isn't kissing, it kinda ruins it.

19. Who asked who out first?

Chris says that I used to bug him about when he was going to ask me out but I don't remember that. First official date, Chris asked me.

20. Who proposed?

Chris did... over Memorial day weekend in Portland, Oregon.

21. Who has more siblings?

I do. 3 brothers. Chris has a brother and sister.

22. Who wears the pants?

Buster has fuzzy pants! (I'll get a picture to put here. It's like puss in boots but with fuzzy pants.) These days it seems like Carter wears the pants too since he dictates our sleeping schedule and pretty much all aspects of our lives.

Now I'm supposed to tag somebody. So, if you're reading this and want to do it- great. If not, whatever.

Also, it's way more fun to do this when your spouse is sitting right next to you piping in with sarcastic quips.

Sherry said...

Chris is a bigger baby than I originally thought.

thsi was so fun to read. you guys are fun. how is the new place going?

Kristi said...

Wow, it was weird to read about myself in your blog! That is really bizarre. Oddly enough, I didn't know I was the first kiss. I love reading your blog and getting to know Cindy a little even though we have never met (and probably will never meet since you guys live so far away.)

Wendy said...

Cindy, you are hysterical! I haven't had a real laugh like that in way too long!! I miss you so much!!!!

BTW - Carter is a doll!
