I love my husband!

Two for Togetherness:
When I first saw this on my sister's and her husband's blog, I knew I HAD to fill it out when I started up my own blog. So here it is...

Two things you compliment your husband on while in his presence:
1. His piercing big, blue eyes!
2. I always seem to be laughing and telling him how funny he is.

Two compliments you make about your spouse to your friends:
1. During the school year, he goes to school and does homework, etc and NEVER complains about it! He also NEVER complains about work.
2. That he likes to cook with me. We love trying new things to eat and he always wants to help and make the food perfect! I also call him the "Master Griller" because he is so good at grilling! I have never once even touched our grill because that is his area of expertise!

Two (or more) traits you married him/her for:
1. His good looks.
2. How well he treated me. (and he was always buying me stuff and surprising me!)
3. His spirituality.
4. He was great with kids.
5. How funny he was and fun to be with.
(these are not in any particular order :) )

Two days you cherished the most with your husband being together:
1. The days we had Jordyn and Evan. I can't even begin to imagine if he hadn't been there. (He was supposed to go out of town the day Evan was born!) I'm so glad I had him there to support me and help me through the pain (until I got drugs!) and then sharing the experience of holding your newborn baby in your arms. Nothing can bring you closer to your spouse!
2. I would have to say our entire honeymoon. We went to Glacier Nat. Park and Banff, Canada. We had so much fun for an entire week with no stress or interruptions. Just the two of us having fun and talking and spending every minute together. What I wouldn't do for another vacation like that! :)

Two (ok, I did three) material things you could give your husband if you just inherited a fortune: 1. A large home on a few hundred acres of mountainous Montana real estate with a creek running near by.
2. Any new vehicle he wanted.
3. Any piece of electronic equipment he wanted!

Two things you would miss the most if she/he left for two weeks:
1. Snuggling! Ok, this might sound very sappy and I'm sure no one wants to hear this. We are the biggest snuggling freaks in the world! I love that Tom is so affectionate and loves to snuggle all the time. And of course we always talk while we are snuggling and I love that too.
2. Feeling safe. Whenever he is gone, it just doesn't feel the same! I always hear tiny noises outside or in the other room and get scared! When he is at home, it just feels safe.

Two thoughts that crossed your mind when you first met/saw your spouse:
1. Who is the cute new guy? I first SAW him in the "singles ward" in Billings. I thought he was cute, but I already had a boyfriend! (shame on me!)
2. I also thought Tom was kind of shy and quiet. The first time I MET Tom, was at 24 Hour Fitness. He was with a friend and the three of us recognized each other from church. Tom and his friend came over and introduced themselves and started talking to me. I just remember his friend dominated the conversation and Tom didn't say much. But, we became really good friends after that and the rest is history!

Two favorite dates:
1. When Tom took me to the Outback Steakhouse and then to a Diamond Rio concert. I loved that he payed attention to what I liked (we weren't even an official couple at this time...just friends). I loved steak and country music!
2. When we went to his house in Wyoming for the first time. We went 4-wheeling, then went hiking up to a small waterfall, then went horseback riding, then looked at the stars that night on the dock at their pond. It couldn't have been any more fun and romantic.

Two funny odd things you love:
1. How often he tells me that he loves me and how good looking or hot he thinks I am. Sometimes he says it sooo much that I have to tell him to stop! I have to say, "Ok, I know you love me and like the way I look, so you don't have to keep telling me!" But I still love it no matter how many times he says it... who wouldn't?
2. When he does his "fake" laugh... it sounds like a little girl laughing. Ok, kind of hard to explain what I am talking about. Hopefully Tom will know what I'm talking about!

Two places you have lived with your spouse:
1. Colton Heights Apartments in Billings. Actually a pretty good place to live for newlyweds who have no money and no kids! We paid $345.00 a month for a 1.5 bedroom apartment... that is virtually UNHEARD of these days! At least for a decent place!
2. Winter Village Apartments. Down by the hospitals in Billings. We liked living here too. I guess we have gotten pretty lucky with apartments we have lived in! But I supposed we have had our share of weird experiences while living in these places too!

You made a great choice in a husband,
Emily. The thing I like about Tom is that he will let Rex out without being asked! (Well, one of the things.)

Love it, Em! I love these questionnaires because you learn things you wouldn't learn otherwise. When is Tom going to repay the favor to you on his blog??
