A + B = <3

I've seen this on a few blogs lately so I figured I'd join in and do it as well! :) I included some pics cuz I heart pictures! ;)

♥ What are your middle names? Elizabeth and Carey

♥ How long have you been together? 2 years and 8 months

♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating? We didn’t know each other before we started dating, we hit it off the first night we met and we’ve been inseparable ever since. ♥ Who asked whom out? He asked me out on our first date. I think after you have been dating for a while it was just obviously we were “official” ;)

♥ Whose siblings do/did you see the most? Mine. His sister lives close as well, we just don’t see them as often. B has a really busy schedule so it just works out that way.

♥ Do you have any children together? Not yet. If B could control this decision on his own, we would probably already have two kids! ;)

♥ What about pets? Yeppers…our baby G!
♥ Did you go to the same school? No.

♥ Who is the smartest? I’ll say it’s a tie

♥ Who is more sensitive? Me. I’m a cry baby!

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple? El Azteca, it’s a little Mexican place by our home. Also we like Applebees for the ½ price appetizers! ♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? Is it bad that we have not even traveled out of the county we live in and it’s been almost 3 years!?! B has a very busy work schedule and with coaching hockey, we only have a few hours a night together. We couldn’t even take a weekend trip because he has to work weekends. Hopefully in the near future we will be able to get away. Somewhere, anywhere!

♥ Who has the craziest exes? Neither of us have crazy exes.

♥ Who has the worst temper? We are both pretty easy going most of the time. I’ve been known to be a drama queen once in a great while, so if I push B’s buttons I can make his temper flare up.
♥ Who does the cooking? Usually me. B is always in the kitchen ready to help if needed. He also does all the grilling! He is the grill master ;)

♥ Who is more social? Him, when it comes to work and talking to hockey parents and just meeting new people in general. Me, if it’s with friends. I love spending time with my friends. Again, poor B’s life is all about work and hockey right now, he has no socializing with friends time currently.

♥ Who is the neat-freak? ME!

♥ Who is more stubborn? Him, no me…ha, we are both stubborn!

♥ Who hogs the bed? B or Gussy. B has flailing arms and legs, I get elbowed in the face sometimes. Gus is small but we only have a queen bed so with all of us in there it seems crowded at times. King bed will be purchased if we ever move into a home!

♥ Who wakes up earlier? Me, I’m up by 6 and he usually gets up an hour or so after when I’m leaving. On the weekends we usually wake up around the same time, whenever B gets up for work….around 7:15 or so.

♥ Where was your first date? First date as in going somewhere or first date as in the first time we hung out? Maybe I’ll save that one for another day...

♥ Who has the bigger family? Me

♥ Do you get flowers often? Maybe once a year. The last ones I received from him were totally out of the blue, I loved it!! He sent a sweet card that said “Thinking of You!!!!!”.

♥ How do you spend the holidays? Since our families both only live about 5 minutes from us, we see both families for the holidays.

♥ Who is more jealous? Me.

♥ How long did it take to get serious? Seems to me like things were serious right away, haha.

♥ Who eats more? Usually him but I can eat a.lot! We love food!!!

♥ Who does/did the laundry? Me.Me.Me. If he does it something might get messed up or not folded or put away correctly ;)

♥ Who’s better with the computer? We are equal on his one.

♥ Who drives when you are together? Always him.
and they lived happily ever after....the end

FABULOUS, i've been tagged....

Today is all about tags.....lots of pics included!
The first award I received is from little Miss Stevy @ The rest is still unwritten.

There are 2 rules once you receive this:

1. You must list 5 current obsessions.
2. You must pass this on to 5 people.

My 5 current obsessions are as follows…

1. My boys! Billy and Gussy! They are like an addiction, when I don’t see them I miss them like crazy and I have withdrawals….ha! just love them both to pieces!

2. Arizona Pomegranate Green Tea. It’s a cold drink, you mix the powder in a pitcher with water. It’s all natural and delicious!! Zero calories and no aspartame. It’s good for you.

3. Morning Star Farms Grillers. I love these things! I eat at least one a day…pretty sure I could live off them. They taste like real hamburgers and they have just about as much protein with half the fat. 4. Blogging! Need I say more?!?! Even though it’s like a full time job, I LOVE IT!!

5. Fall. I might not be totally obsessed with Fall but there is so much that I love about Fall and it’s right around the corner! Cool weather, changing leaves, Halloween, Thanksgiving, the many scents of Yankee fall candles!

I received these next awards from sweet Meg @ My Life in Words and the adorable Shana also tagged me with these awards!

The rules are to list 7 things that you love!

My 7 are….

1. MY FAMILY of course that includes my lil family of B AND GUS!!!

2. My ring! Being engaged….to the man I’ll spend the rest of my life with. I love my B with all my heart :) (my ring is my most favorite possession, i know most of you have already seen it but for those that haven't)
3. Target!

4. Being lazy – (naps, relaxing in bed with gus, watching tv on rainy days)

5. The Gym – I love being lazy but I also love going to the gym and feeling so good about myself when leaving.

6. Mine and B’s home….it’s so cozy and just perfect for us! Our time together at home is split between the living room/kitchen counters and our bedroom. I think when either of us are home alone we spend most of the time in the office.

our bedroom....
7. Blankie (LOL) I have a blanket that I sleep with every night, it’s not a small baby blanket. Just a blanket I’ve had for the past 10 or so years. I love it! It travels with me as well. Yep, I’m 26 and have an attachment to a blankie! Haha!!

DONE! Thanks for the tags ladies!! :)

I will tag anyone that wants to do either of these! I have soooo many favorite girlies in blog world that I could not pick just 5 of you!! I also know some people don’t like to do these. So if you are wordless for a day and need something to blog about, I suggest you think about these awards and consider them from me and post about them!! :)

btw, if you have tagged me and i missed it or didn't post on it, so sorry! i'm going to try to be better around these!!
