Husband Tag

I've been tagged by Cara. I agree Cara, I think tags are fun to do and it's fun to learn things about people that you didn't know! This one is all about the hubby.

Name?
Gregory

How Long have we been married?
8 Years! Holy smokes.

How long did we date?
A year and 1/2. I will skip to the stubborn question next because it is so fitting.

Who is the most stubborn?
That would be me.

How old is he?
33, 34 in July

Who eats more?
That would be me also. And this is not only when I'm pregnant.



Who said I love you first?
Greg. I remember right before we got engaged sitting in his room and talking about marriage and he said "Do you love me?" and I sat and thought and a smile involuntarily spread across my face and I said "Well, I can't say that I don't." (It was sort of a revelation to myself! I had refused to aknowledge it until then - too scary.) And to answer your question, yes, I know I am weird. :) After we were engaged I became much more open and said it lots so don't feel too sorry for him!! ;)

Who is smarter?
I think that is a crazy question.

Who does the laundry?
Mostly me, but Greg helps.

Who does the dishes?
I load and Greg unloads. It's a pretty good system.

Who pays bills?
I used to at the very beginning, but most of it is set up online now and Greg takes care of the rest.

Who has the most friends?
Greg I think, because he is better at keeping in touch with his. I am workin' on it!

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed. Me because it is furthest away from the door where the boogie man could come in. ;)

Who cooks dinner?
Most of the time I do, but Greg does sometimes, more on the weekends I think.

Who proposed?
Well this is an interesting story as well! Greg. This happened about a month after the previously stated marriage talk. The proposal started out as an ultimatum. hehehe. It is funny now and I don't blame him one bit. But I remember bieng SO mad and thinking it was so unfair. He had just picked me up to hang out at his house and then when we got inside he said we either had to move forward or stop dating. I said I am not ready to get married so I guess we'll have to stop dating. So he drove me back home then and there and when we got to my house he started to say "I am sorry it has to be like this" but before he could finish I got out and slammed the door. So we stopped dating for about 2 days and then I came to my senses. I called him and said yes. Then he dressed up and officially proposed at the office where I worked at the time. I had my own office and he came in and I thought he had to dress up for work that day or something until he kneeled down. It was very sweet. Then, later, when my actual wedding ring was finished getting made he picked me up for lunch and had it in his mouth and I was like, what are you eating? He had the craziest grin on his face so I had to pry his mouth open and get my wet slobbery ring :)



Who has more siblings?
Me. 3 Sisters, 3 Brothers. Greg is an only child so he thought my house was total chaos whenever he came over. I am sure it was. I remember once, he was playing with my brothers and wrestling them and he was astounded to find french fries in their bed. hahaha

Who drives when we're together?
Greg

Who wears the pants in the family? I will say Greg, but he will say me, especially when it comes to the kids. We try to make joint decisions...but if we disagree, most of the time I win ;)



Though the above events truly did happen...
Seriously, to quote Ben Fold Five...

I don't get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here

And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

Who I am tagging: Ali and Mim

You were stubborn! Greg's a catch, and I know deep down you knew it too then, you just didn't want to admit it! Thankfully you came to your senses...it worked out beautifully in your favor!!! not to mention the gorgeous little "bonuses" that came along with the arrangement (ie. Parker & Meadow)

We think you're both lucky. You are good for each other. We remember when Greg told us he asked Heather to marry him. Daddy Winters asked "Why Heather"? Greg said "Because she is the kind of girl that will make me the man I need to be". That was all we needed to hear and they have had our blessing & love ever since.

Ok, that was me before, I just had to re-write it.

Definitely stubborn...and terrified! :) I'd seen good and terrible examples of how being married could be so I had to dot all of my i's and cross all of my t's and proof read and spell check and background check and get references. And then I still needed an ultimatum! hehehe. My Mom is still amazed that I am married I think ;)

Thanks Mom and Dad Winters! I love that :)

I really enjoyed reading that. Thanks for sharing. Plus, I liked seeing Greg with a lighthouse growing out of his head :P
