The Love of My Life: My Husband, Eternal Companion, Significant Other, Spouse, Better Half, Best Friend, Lover, Confidant .....

I was just tagged by Ma Fitz so here goes . . .

1. Where did we first meet?
In Hawaii - that's right, folks, Paradise makes for a very romantic beginning!
Laie, Oahu, Hawaii - Human Genetics and Concert Choir at BYUH to be exact.

2. How long did you date before you got married?
The short answer: We knew each other for 1 year without really dating, then when we finally decided we were interested in being more than friends, went on 1 date, got engaged, and were then engaged for 1 more year (longest year of my life!).

3.How long have you been married?
7 years and 2 months as of tomorrow. :)

4. What does he do that surprises you?
He always has something up his sleeve.

5. What is your favorite feature of his?
VERY hard to decide. For blogging purposes, I'll have to go with his SMILE...

6. What is your favorite quality of his?
His integrity, his strong work ethic, and his absolute devotion to God, me, and our family.

7. Does he have a nickname for you?
LOVEY - cheesy, I know, and I can't even remember how it started, but there you have it.

8. What is his favorite color?
BURGUNDY. (Must have the "R" rolled and be said with an Irish accent, I don't know why.)

9. What is his favorite food?
Very hard to tell. He eats and compliments EVERYTHING I make (even the disasters...) and if I ask his preference for dinner, he says "Whatever's easiest for you!" I know he favors asparagus, chicken enchiladas, tortilla soup, zuppa toscana and a special tofu stir-fry I make, but I couldn't tell you his favorite.

10. What is his favorite sport?
Watching: Nothing (One of my most favorite of his qualities!!!) Playing/Participating: Hard to say - he loves running, biking, volleyball and basketball most, but I'm not sure which he'd rank highest. Probably running?

11. When and where was your first kiss?
I'd like to say the rooftop of the Grand Hotel in Taiwan (we came oh so close but he lost the nerve) - but about a week later I finally decided to take matters into my own hands in the ocean at Temple Beach (Laie, HI). Awkward because he wasn't expecting it, but special nonetheless. And it had to be done because he was leaving Hawaii that night. :)

12. What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?

13. Do you have any children?
Only the 2 (almost 3) most AMAZING kids EVER CREATED - one boy, one girl (and one more on the way)

14. Does he have a hidden talent?
My favorite one: He gives the MOST AMAZING massages - I've been to TONS of massage therapists, but not one has even come close to his magical hands. Sorry, though, I'm the only beneficiary, so you'll just have to take my word for it. :)

15. How old is he?
32 tomorrow! - if you're reading, Happy Birthday, babe!

16. Who said "I love you" first?
Him, and he's almost always first every time since.

17. What is his favorite type of music?
Classical, spiritual and celtic.

18. What do you admire most about him?
His determination and willingness to work hard through some of the most difficult challenges I've ever known anyone to be faced with.

19. Do you think he will read this?
Maybe. I know he checks in periodically for updates since he's probably on the computer more than he's home these days (due to school, not by choice).

20. I tag: Sarah Mudaliar

That was fun to read about yours and Jon's beginnings. I filled out a similar survey about a week ago on our blog. Your family is cute!

LoL! I was debating on whether or not I was going to post that myself, until I started blushing at some of the answers I had to those questions... Then I saw you tagged me... lol we'll see how it turns out...

Well, you got right to it! I've always thought you had a gem in Jon. I see the same gentle spirit in him that I do in your uncle. You chose well!
