So What if...

  • I watch cartoons with Stratton.
  • I watch cartoons even when Stratton isn't around.
  • I like that G6 song. I don't even know what it's really called.
  • I buy books on my phone and don't tell Derek. Shhh.
  • I don't really like's not for everyone.
  • I don't always match. I dress for comfort. 
  • I get ALL the free underwear that comes from VS and don't really buy anything.

Me and You, Just us two...

I got this from a fellow blogger and friend Emily Schmitz.
I thought it was really cute to I wanted to do it too.

1. What are your middle names?
Emily Ann and Derek Allen
2. How long have you been together?
It was 3 years in October

3. How long did you know each other before dating?
6 months

4. Who asked who out?
He asked me out for 6 months straight until I finally broke down and said yes.

No, I went to Cape Central and he went to Jackson
7. Are you from the same home town?
No, he grew up in Jackson and I grew up in Cape Girardeau
8. Who is the smartest?
I am for sure.

9. Who majored in what?
I am majoring in Art. I'm still trying to graduate.

10. Who is the most sensitive?
I think it's a pretty big toss up between the two of us. Derek may look tough be he's really a big softy.

11. Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
We went to Knoxville, TN for our honeymoon. I was sick the entire weekend though.
We also went to Chicago to see his mom. I'm not sure which one is further. It's about 8 hours either way.
12. Who has the worst temper?
Derek definitely has the worst temper. He is quick to get mad but gets over it pretty quick. I on the other hand don't get mad as easy but it takes me A LOT longer to get over it.

13. How many children do you want?
He would like to have 1 but I would really like to have 2. 
We're working on this one.
14. Who does the cooking?
More often than not I cook but he has been pitching in lately since he has been on a diet and I most certainly AM NOT!

15. Who is more social?
Definitely me, he is more of a recluse and likes to stay home.
16. Who is the neat freak?
Derek. I like my stuff clean but I'm not a freak about it.
17. Who is the most stubborn?
Derek! He is about as stubborn as they come. I'm a total push over.
18. Who wakes up earlier?
Derek usually wakes up at 6:30 M-F and I wake up at 6:15 if I need a shower. If not I wake up at 7. 
On weekends we take turns getting to sleep in. Usually on Saturdays I wake up early and Sundays he wakes early.
19. Where was your first date?
I made him come over and eat dinner with me and my Dad. He was not very happy about that little change in plans. I told him we could go out but instead we stayed home with my dad. :)

20. Who has the bigger family?
He definitely has the bigger family. On Derek's side Stratton has 5 uncles (Garrett, Josh, Erik, Seth, & Danny), 4 aunts (Steph, Ashley, Mady and Mary), 4 cousins (Payne, Cobie, Kayden, and Jude), 2 Grandma's (Brenda and Lisa), 2 Grandpa's (Dale and Jim), 2 Great Grandma's (Mona and Maxine) and 1 Great Grandpa (Bill).
 On my side Stratton has 1 uncle (Marcus), 1 aunt (Casey), no cousins (yet), 1 Grandma (Kathie), 1 Grandpa (Calvin), 2 Great Grandma's (Jeanne and Marge), 1 Great Grandpa (John), and 1 Great Aunt (Auntie Pam)

21. How do you spend the holidays?
Thanksgiving we spend lunch time with my side of the family at Grandma Marge's house then we go to Derek's Grandma Mona's house for dinner.

22. Who is more jealous?
I don't think either one of us really has an issue with being jealous.

23. How long did it take you to get serious
3 months after we started dating we got married.
24. Who eats more?
That's kind of a toss up. I snack all day but he eats like 3 big meals a day.

25. Who does the laundry?
 He does the laundry. He washes and I fold it and put it away.

26. What do you do for a living?
I am a graphic designer as well as being part of the I.T. Dept. at Rapco.
Derek is a sales rep at Rapco.

27. Who is better with the computer?
I'm definitely the computer whiz between the two of us.
28. Who drives when your together?
When it's around town he usually drives but if we go to St Louis or somewhere far I usually drive.
