Husband Tag

1- Where did you meet? The first time was in the Clubhouse at Stadium Terrace where he lived at BYU. He was sitting on a couch and refused to move since that was where the air conditioning vent was blowing.

2- How long did you date before you were married? about 9 months

3- How long have you been married for? 2 1/2 years

4- What does he do that surprises you? He loves to cook with me...and he's obsessed with board games (which obsession, oddly enough, I initiated by introducing him to Settlers).

5- What's your favorite feature about him? His legs. In high school they called him T-Rex because his legs were so strong from playing soccer so much.

6- What's your favorite quality about him? His love of learning. I love how excited he gets when he's explaining something he learned...whether it's astronomy, anatomy, something in sports, or anything random. He gets all excited and worked up and is just dying to share everything he knows about it with you.

7- Does he have a nickname for you? What is it? Wif or Wifity or Love

8- What's his favorite color? Blue

9- What's his favorite food? Iverson-style burgers

(they look good, eh? No other burgers compare)

10-What is his favorite sport? to play: soccer; to watch: football, men's soccer, pretty much anything, but NOT baseball

11- Who said I love you first? I think it was a tie.

12- When and where was your first kiss? 4 days after we started dating. On the swing on the back porch of the Stone House where I lived.

13-What's your favorite thing to do as a couple? Go rock climbing. Too bad we live in Texas now...we need to find a new one. Lately it's been eating Blue Bell Ice Cream, a wonderful part of being in Texas.
(that's me, not him)

14-Do you have kids? How many? 1, if you couldn't tell

15- What's a hidden talent that he has? Hidden...hum...not sure, but there's some unique stuff he does: makes bread, bakes pies, knows all the constellations, knows how to basket weave, and has an amazing memory for details.

16- How old is he? 28 in one month - that means he'll be almost 37 by the time he's done with med school/residency

17- What's his favorite type of music? Er, rock? We don't listen to music all that much

18- What do you admire most about him? I love how he thinks deeply about things and is constantly analyzing how he is doing in all aspects of his life.

19-What's his favorite past time? Reading. If he has any time to read, that's what he'll do.

20- Do you think he is going to read this? Yes.

That was fun to read. Wow Melanie, I didn't know you were such an avid rock climber. :) So what exactly is it that makes a burger into an Iverson-burger?

I really like this post!! We miss you guys! Have you gotten into a house yet? Spencer wants Paul to know that if he gets burned out with Med School, they can work on creating the game - Kings of Kentucky - he is sure that will make enough money to raise a family on! :)

First kiss only 4 days after you started dating??? and paul said he was a slow mover! You had him wrapped around your finger that april conference of 2005! I will always remember that because i was FLOORED that he was so twiterpated..he'll deny it but he was :)! You two are so great and I am so glad you are such an awesome addition to the family! And....I so super glad Paul has you :) We are just so lucky and blessed!

Isn't Blue Bell the best! Staci told Eric how great Blue Bell Ice Cream was, and when they came to Texas last July, he got to eat it. Unless you have been to Texas and had Blue Bell, one doesn't know what they are missing.
For your new hobby? Long walks in the open plains of Lubbock? Not too far away near Amarillo, there is the second largest canyon in the US. Paladura (sp) Canyon. Steve has been to it. Our home teacher grew up in Amarillo and said it took all day to climb in and out of it as a teenager. Not too bad for Texas.
