What are your middle names?
My middle name is Leah, Brad's is Keith.

How long have you been together?
We’ve been together for nine years, married for seven.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?

We had been really good friends for a year before we started dating. I had told him about my crushes (he says breaking his heart) while I had no idea that he felt that way for me. When I found out I felt sooooo bad!

Who asked whom out?
Because we were really good friends, it kind of just happened. He definitely asked me on the dates and stuff though, it was cute, we were both so nervous.

How old are each of you?
I'm 28 and he is 27.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Neither really, his sister lives in NY and my brother lives in OC. We used to see my brother more often, but then he got transferred to a new army post. We miss them.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Family issues, mother-in-laws that are TOO involved. No doubt. It is pretty much better now though.

Did you go to the same school?
We didn't until College, then yes. We both went to the same junior college and then to the same University. We got married out sophomore year.

Are you from the same home town?
No, I came to Corvallis to go to Oregon State University. I grew up in Spain though.

Who is smarter?
No one. There are two kinds of smarts, Brad has the book smarts and I have the street smarts (practical smarts as we call them). I would say though, that we really are pretty even.

Who is the most sensitive?
I don't know, sometimes him, sometimes me.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Indian, Thai and pizza are probably our favourites, bit that is because that is what is here. We love anything foreign and different from what we eat every day.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Spain, to visit my parents. I can't wait to head back (please, please soon!?)

Who has the craziest exes?
Neither really. I had an incident with his ex girlfriend when we (Brad and I) were friends. She hassled me in a coffee shop telling me that I shouldn't be there with Brad, but they had broken up over 5 months before that! After that though, no more excitement for us :)

Who has the worst temper?
Well, in the beginning it was Brad, he grew up with parents that went at eachother a lot. Now neither of us really have a temper, we both can still be seriously grouchy though.

Who does the cooking?
I do mostly, he does it sometimes as a treat or if I will be going out. It really isn't his thing though.

Who is the neat-freak?
He is.

Who is more stubborn?
Both of us. We are getting better at compromise though!

Who hogs the bed?

Who wakes up earlier?
Brad. I love my sleep and I stay up late reading....I try but I just turn off the alarm. Hopeless.

Where was your first date?
Our first non-friend date was at a fancy Italian restaurant. I don't remember the name.

Who is more jealous?

How long did it take to get serious?
Once we were dating, we knew we'd get married. He said something, and I felt exactly the same way. Perfect-o!

Who eats more?

Brad. I eat way more candy though.

Who does the laundry?
I do.

Who’s better with the computer?


Who drives when you are together?
We take turns. Whoever doesn't drive has to deal with the boys in the back, so it is sometimes easier to just be the driver. The boys have gotten to be better travelers now though.

If you want to answer the questions go for it! I don't usually do these, but it was fun to read the other answers out there and so I decided to do one too.

Just ask if you have any other questions that you'd like me to answer! :)

This is a fun meme! Spain to Oregon is a long way to go for college!

Interesting way to get to know you better! I loved reading your answers. My husband were really good friends before we dated as well. Not sure what our first "official" date was or if we even had one! I do remember that first kiss, though. ;)
