Me and My MAN!

I never really take the chance to talk about Blake and I on our blog... and just today I got tagged (via facebook) this...Me and My Man... so here it goes.... and the picture above was our first picture taken back in 2003.

Me and My Man

♥ What are your middle names? Diane and Andrew

♥ How long have you been together? Together since 2003, Married since 2005.

♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating? A couple of months (is this bad that I don't know exactly how long?)

♥ Who asked who out? Kind of a long and complicated story... but I was dating someone else and I was interested in Blake from the first time I meet him... but I had to play it cool since I was seeing someone else. But the night that I broke up with (old) boyfriend, Blake said he could take me to the airport the next morning (so not sure if this counts) but a week later I was the first one to call and I asked him to go to Wal-Mart with me to help me pick out some plants for my pots... does this count... our real first date(s) we consider is ONE DAY 2003... and he was going with his family as a volunteer and I was going with a group of friends (already... sort of) as participants...

♥ How old are each of you? I am 31 and Blake is 30... the joke is there are 2 months out of the year where I am 2 years older then him... :-)

♥ Whose siblings do/ did you see the most? I have none but even I did I would probably have to say Julie (Blake's sister) and her husband since they live in Houston (about 7 minutes from our house) and they are easy to love and be loved by... they really make the effort to spend time with us and are gracious with their house when we come to Houston for a visit (while living in Singapore). Blake does have a brother named Keith (and his wife Elysse) and we love them as much but they live in Dallas and it is harder to get to see them as often.

♥ Do you have any children together? Pierce Blake Denton, the joy of our lives.

♥ Do you have any pets? My cat named Kitty (Blake would never accept her as his own and yes she came from the pound with that name)... she is no longer mine for her new home is with my in-laws in Dallas since we moved to Singapore... but she is the best cat you will ever find and gorgeous.

♥ Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? I am really searching for an answer to this one... so I will just have to say "Thank you Jesus "

♥ Did you go to the same school? Yes, Texas A&M University... but we did not know each other in college

♥ Are you from the same home town? Nope... I am from Benbrook, TX and he is from Richardson, TX.

♥ Who is the smartest? Wow... depends on the topic of choice... but when comparing ourselves as a contestant on "Who's smarter than a 5th grader"... I think I would make it to 1st grade and Blake would make it to 5th.

♥ Who is the most sensitive? Is this seriously a real question??... I would have to say me since when I think about sensitive I think about tears... and Blake has seen me cry alot of times and I can only think of 2 for him... once the night he told me he loved me and the other was when his grandfather passed away.

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple? Somewhere in Singapore.

♥ Where is the farthest you two have traveled together as a couple? Halfway across the world to where we live now... SINGAPORE... I don't think you could get any further... maybe if we became astronauts and flew to Mars.

♥ Who has the craziest exes? ummm, since he has only ONE ex... I would have to say me just out of shear numbers.

♥ Who has the worst temper? Yours truly... like a crock pot or volcano... when I erupt it is nasty... but working on that.

♥ Who does the cooking? Me for everything but grilling... but since we live on the 10th floor and grilling is prohibited I guess that would be ME.

♥ Who is more social? Blake would say me... but have you meet my husband?

♥ Who is the neat-freak? Me...absolutely, me...

♥ Who is more stubborn? we both are absolutely, completely stubborn

♥ Who hogs the bed? HIM

♥ Who wakes up earlier? That would be Blake since his alarm clock goes off at 5:50am and mine is at 8:30 when Pierce starts talking in bed.

♥ Where was your first date? ONE DAY 2003

♥ Who has the bigger family? Immediate Blake, but extended I am the winner.

♥ Do you get flowers often? No... Blake does not like to give flowers.

♥ How do you spend the holidays? With each other... that has always been important to us... switching holidays between extended families but always together the three of us.

♥ Who is more jealous? completely, totally me

♥ How long did it take to get serious? I might not tell Pierce this when he gets older (so he will take it slower) but not long... I remember having a conversation with my old roommate just 2 months after having meet him that I wanted to be his wife and a part of his family.

♥ Who eats more? I eat more often, Blake eats less often but bigger portions...

♥ Who does the laundry? Cena (our helper) and I... Blake does not touch it... it just mystically appears in his drawers ready to be worn everyday.... he loves it that way.

♥ Who’s better with the computer? Blake has no idea how to do a Blog (that would be me) but he can reprogram a database, he is a master at auto cad (sp?), and there have been several times I have found him where the shell of the computer is missing and he is playing with tiny wires.... scary but I guess that means he is better than I (at some things :-)).

♥Was it love at first sight? Yes, the first time I meet Blake we were at a church retreat in Houston, TX... I was dating someone else but had a single friend who I had encouraged to go meet that cute guy over there (that would be Blake). When she went over to meet him he took off his baseball cap and shook her hand and said hello... what a gentlemen I thought... so yes it was love at first sight.

You now know a little about us...I tag all of our readers because I want to know a little about you. You know the drill, copy...paste...delete...reanswer... look forward to learning more about you and your MAN (or for all the guy readers... you and your GAL).

We miss you guys too. Got to stay at your old house this weekend. went to visit Lindsey and her roommates sisters were in town so we stayed at you place. The hood looks the same. I think my side has gone down since we left. No joke. Pierce is a doll wish we could see you guys.

I loved reading this. I could relate to so many things, and that made me laugh. My alarm clock is a little baby boy "talking" in bed, too. And my husband's laundry also mysteriously appears in his drawers. This was fun to get to know you guys better. I remember meeting Blake once or twice in Houston and always thought he was a sweet guy and the perfect guy for you! Love you!

Hey Camille, I have been following your blog for awhile, since Shelly and I met on facebook. I just wanted you to know that I fell hard and fast for my husband. We dated for 4 months and got engaged and were married 5 months later. Celebrated 8 years last December and he brought me to the Lord. Greatest blessing! Love seeing your beautiful family and reading your blog. ~Jessica (Brown) Dodson
