50 Things

I loved this post Cheryl did a few weeks back, and since I always love to copy her I thought I'd do it, too! :)  Here goes, 50 things about Brent and I...

  1. We met in high school and even went on a few dates.
  2. On our first date when we were 16, he took me to see "Pearl Harbor" and I made him incredibly uncomfortable when I cried at the end.
  3. On our second date, he took me to see "Signs", and I couldn't sleep for a week afterwards.
  4. One time he forgot we saw that movie together, and insisted he saw it with his ex girlfriend.
  5. I'll never let him forget #4.  :)
  6. If we listed on paper the little things we have in common like hobbies and music preferences, the list would be very short.
  7. If we listed on paper the larger things in life like our values, life goals, etc... the list would be almost identical.
  8. He is my biggest cheerleader, and I am his.
  9. He likes to remind me how I said no to him when he asked me to the prom our senior year.
  10. Breakfast is our favorite meal to eat together.
  11. In the course of our relationship, we have lived far apart longer than we have lived near to one another.
  12. I think the distance has made us what we are today, in a very good way.
  13. He was born and raised in Arizona, and I am a California girl always and forever.
  14. We were listening to Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything for Love... But I Won't Do That" the moment I knew I loved him.
  15. I love to cook. He loves to cook... burritos.
  16. This is our song.
  17. He is a night owl, I am an early bird.
  18. He has the best bedhead in the world.
  19. We like to rub our heads together... literally.  It feels good!
  20. He says I cuddle my animals too much... but I catch him doing it all of the time, too.
  21. I love the beach; he hates the feeling of sand on his feet.
  22. He likes to stalk me on the internet (I know you're reading this!!)
  23. He loves zombie movies; I can't sit through them.
  24. He is incredibly competitive in athletics.
  25. I am incredibly competitive in board games.
  26. We both like our burritos simple: beans and cheese, please.
  27. He loves to put broccoli in/on anything (except burritos...wait... now he's considering it).
  28. When we are apart, we count down the days until we see each other again.
  29. He has made me a little cleaner, and I have made him a little messier.
  30. He knew we were going to keep Rudybega the day I brought him home as a "foster" dog, even though I tried to deny it for weeks.
  31. He has pretty poor hand-eye coordination.
  32. I love to make chocolates, but he won't eat 'em.
  33. He's a really good writer... but I don't think he'll ever share it with anyone but me.
  34. He thinks living in the desert makes people stronger... I think it just makes them angry.
  35. His first true love is (and always will be) his truck, Goat.
  36. Goat may not have been my first love, but I do love the way he smells, all of the memories we've made with him, and those we have still yet to make!
  37. He always has fun, no matter what he's doing.
  38. I'm much pickier and get bored/irritated easily.
  39. He will never lose his childish enthusiasm.
  40. I was born an 80 year-old lady.
  41. His favorite holiday is Halloween, mine is Christmas.
  42. He makes me laugh until my stomach hurts.
  43. He blames me for getting him hooked on chai tea lattes.
  44.  I think we're both cheesy romantics at heart, but neither of us likes to admit it.
  45. His best qualities are being passionate, loyal, and intelligent.
  46. He says my best quality is always seeing the good in people.
  47. We both value honesty in our relationship... even if it can be uncomfortable at times.
  48. We are going on 6 years together, though he often forgets and loses count.
  49. It makes me laugh that he uses chapstick in weird places, like his wrists and elbows.
  50. When I asked him to tell me one thing about us, he just said, "love".

p.s. 9 days until we get to see each other again.
