Him and Her - Mike and Denise

What's his name? Mike.

How long have you been together? Met April 2000, Married Nov 1, 2003 - Can't believe it has been almost 8 years now.

How long did you date before moving in together? Ummm like a day.

How old is he? 39 (the big 40 this summer).

Who eats more? I think him in one sitting, but I eat more spread out over the course of the day.

Who said I love you first? I don't remember but I think I did.

Who is taller? him, by about 8-9 inches

Who is smarter? Both - him about history and boring crap like that and me about money and other lifey stuff.

Who does laundry? We both do our part - he brings down, sorts, washes, dries and brings back up - I fold and put away

Who does the dishes? We both do our share of loading and unloading the dishwasher - I'm sure he would say he does it more but I think it is pretty even

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? If you are looking at the bed from the footboard - I'm on the Left and Mike is on the Right - even when we go away.

Who pays the bills? MEEEEEE

Who mows the lawn? The lawn service for our development

Who cooks dinner? I started off cooking more then when I went on Jenny Craig, Mike took over for himself and now I think we are at about 50/50 with me making Mr. Foods dinners and Mike grilling for us.

Who drives when you are together? Mike usually drive, I don't even offer anymore really - except this past weekend when we were coming home from Orlando - I can't remember the last time I drove all of us.

Who is more stubborn? I think it is a split. We each have our moments of not giving in.

Who kissed who first? I think we both just went in for the kiss while walking along Flagler Drive on our first date after I took his hand in the car on the way from the restaurant.

Who asked out who first? I don't know...I think we just made the decision to have our first date after talking on the phone for over a month.

Who proposed? We talked a lot about marriage and already owned a home when in April 2003 we decided to get married. He actually gave me my ring and "proposed" on one knee in gardens at the Mai Kai in Fort Lauderdale in August 2003.

Who has more siblings Me: 2 half brothers, 1 stepsister, 1 stepbrother - him: 1 brother

Who wears the pants in the family? We share although I'm sure he would say I'm more controlling. We make big decisions together.
