My Great Husband

I've been tagged by Kelli to tell a little bit about my man, so here goes :)

1. Who is your man? Mark C. Rogers

2. How long have you been together? Married for 3 1/2, and in a relationship 5 1/2 - crazy, I know.

3. How long did you date? 2 years almost exactly.

4. How old is your man? 27! He's so old!

5. Who eats more? Mark eats more at one sitting, but I might rival him if we spread it out throughout the day.

6. Who said "I love you" first? He did.

7. Who is taller? That's a tough one... just kiddin. He is by about a foot and 3 inches.

8. Who sings better? I think Mark does. It is a common occurrance for the people sitting in front of us in churches to turn around and tell him he has a good voice and that he should join the choir :)

9. Who is smarter? Mark is way smarter - he is so sharp. He's a pretty good logical thinker. I've learned a lot from him in this area I think. I could never do the amount of studying and thinking that he's about to do up at Trinity!

10. Whose temper is worse? Mine. I don't think he has much of one. He does get pretty riled up in discussions, but not because he's mad, he just loves discussions.

11. Who does the laundry? I do.

12. Who takes out the garbage? I put it out on the porch and Mark usually takes it down to the dumpster. One time we put the garbage out on the porch and we had forgotten that the people who come by to get your used clothes were coming. Needless to say, they took our garbage and drove off with it in their truck. We felt bad, but it was pretty funny too. :)

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Facing it, Mark does.

14. Who pays the bills? Mark. I always told him when I was a stay at home mom I would take over, but it hasn't happened yet. I don't think he minds doing it anyway. At first I didn't do it because I don't think he wanted me to see how little we had when we first moved here! :)

15. Who is better with the computer? I think he is. But I am a faster typer :)

16. Who mows the lawn? No lawn to mow, but if we did, I would think Mark would - I have never mowed a lawn in my life.

17. Who cooks dinner? I do.

18. Who drives when you are together? Mark does. He doesn't even let me drive on long trips.

19. Who pays when you go out? Mark does, and I always tell him thank you :)

20. Who is most stubborn? We are both pretty stubborn, but I think I am probably more so.

21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? He is. He is really good at this, and it makes me want to improve on it. It goes back to my stubborness. He is always so quick to forgive too - he never holds grudges.

22. Whose parents do you see the most? Its pretty 50/50.

23. Who kissed who first? He kissed me first.

24. Who asked who out? He asked me if I wanted to go get a drink after he got out of church on a Sunday night ;) We went to Applebees.

25. Who proposed? He did - on Newport Beach after eating at one of our favorites - BJ's.

26. Who is more sensitive? We are sensitive in different areas. I am moreso, but I am thankful that I married a somewhat sensitive man.

27. Who has more friends? I do.

28. Who has more siblings? He does - 2 - Kevin and Philip. I have one sister - Robin Dayle.

29. Who wears the pants in the family? We both wear pants, but he is our fearless leader :)

30. What's your favorite thing about your man? Tough question - One of my favorites is that he is so committed to being a great hubby and dad. He loves to spend time with us, and makes sure we get good, frequent quality time, even though he gets so busy with work and school. I also love that he can make me laugh often. I like that he knows more about most everything than I do, and that he knows the answer to most of my questions - he's a smarty! He is a great man, and I am so thankful that God joined our lives together. I really couldn't have dreamed up someone this great to marry!

Now, I tag... JZ, Kim Imai, and Tracy Allbright

Today we went and picked out pumpkins. It didn't go the way we had planned, but we had fun anyway. Hope had fun too - just about everything is fun to her right now, except baths, swimming and the end of meal times. It is finally Fall weather here now!

Little Hopey.

Our little family.

I Love the Elections...

We don't have cable now, but I'm hoping we might be able to fit it in the budget when we move up North so that I can watch Fox News during the hustle and bustle of the elections. I really love the elections. It's such a big decision being made by so many differing viewpoints. I got to meet President Bush in 2004 before the elections so I think that got me hooked.

James Dobson and a few others recently came out saying that if it ends up being between 2 pro-choice candidates, they will rally behind a 3rd independent pro-life candidate. They said they will never vote for a pro-choice candidate. Justin Taylor wrote a good blog post weighing both sides of the issue. What do you think?
