I'm it

I've been tagged by Megan, my good friend from med school. Here's the dirt...

How long have you been together? 7 years this June. I can't believe it's been that long.

How long did you date? About a year

How old are you? 29 and counting

Who eats more? 6 months ago, no question--Ryan. But now that I'm eating for two, some meals are a toss up.

Who said I love you first? Honestly don't remember. I think maybe me, but I'm not sure.

Who is taller? Ryan. I have strong Ivie genes.

Who is smarter? That would be Ryan. I always say I hope our kids get his brain and my heart.

Who does the laundry? That would be me. Although, Ryan does occasionally help out with the washing/drying but NOT folding.

Who does the dishes? Mostly me, but if I've cooked a nice meal Ryan takes over.

Who pays the bills? I take care of the day to day bills (thank you Quicken) and Ryan is in charge of the overall finances.

Who mows the lawn? One of the great perks of our house...the HOA takes care of the yard 
and the snow removal. But if they didn't, it would be Ryan.

Who cooks dinner? I do, most of the time. Ryan is a better cook, but I am more consistent.

Who drives when you are together? No question. Ryan. There have only been two times Ryan has seen the view from the passenger seat (except for occasionally to and from church). On the first occasion he was so doped up on pain meds he was not fully coherent. The second time he had just rendezvoused with a deer while going 45 miles an hour on his bike. Both times he wanted to drive!!

Who is more stubborn? Probably me. When I get something in my head, it's hard for me to let go.

Who has more siblings? Ryan. 4 boys to my 3 girls.

Who wears the pants in the family? Good question. I think we probably both get a leg, but mine has a fancy back pocket while Ryan's is unadorned.

Ryan has one of the cutest girls I have ever met. Of course he's not so bad himself. Happy to get to know you both better. Can't wait to see Janie on these blogs. At least you know my choice of names. Laura
