Jas and Me

What are your middle names?
J and Marie
How long have you been together?
Creeping up on 5 years!!
How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Um...2 days? It was a blind date and we met just a couple of days before if I remember right.
Who asked who out?
Neither of us. :)
How old are each of you?
Jason is 28 and McKenna is 25.
Whose siblings do/ did you see the most?
Do you have any children together?
Payson is 4 years old and Jack is almost 2!
What about pets?
We've attempted fish, birds, a cat, and a dog since we've been married. We've learned we're not the greatest pet owners.
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Probably money. We don't fight about it at all, but it's definitely a big stresser!
Did you go to the same school?
Jason went to school in ID and McKenna went to school in CA and UT.
Are you from the same home town?
Nope. Again, Jason from ID and McKenna from CA/UT.
Who is smarter?
Jason at spelling...McKenna at EVERYTHING else! ;) ha ha!
Who is more sensitive?
We're pretty even there. Although McKenna definitely cries more. :)
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Sadly, we've been out to eat ONCE out here in WY since we moved. And it was to Bonsai. Yummy!
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Who has the craziest exes?
McKenna. Oh, the stories I could tell!! :)
Who has the worst temper?
McKenna. Hormones. :)
Who does the cooking?
McKenna. Although Jason made me breakfast in bed the other day!! He's the best.
Who is more social?
We're about even there. Although McKenna has more time to be social.
Who is the neat-freak?
We're probably equal slobs. :)
Who is more stubborn?
Who hogs the bed?
Payson. Ha ha ha! Seriously. She climbs into our bed and we all get squashed!
Who wakes up earlier?
Where was your first date?
Our first date...long version or short version? That's right! You don't have a choice! You're getting the long version. One of my best friend's, Catherine, was dating Jason's roommate, Richard. They set us up. So Saturday morning they woke us up with flowers (I was staying at Cath's dorm) and took us back to their apartment and made us some super yummy breakfast (heart shaped pancakes). Then we got ready and went to Crazy Bob's or something like that in Rexburg to play pool. Then we grabbed Wendy's for lunch and went bowling. Then I think we watched a movie at their apartment. Then we went to Big Judd's and shared a GINORMOUS burger between the four of us. Then back to their apartment where we played cards. LOOOOONG first date. :) But it was such a blast!!
Do you get flowers often?
I used to get them ALL the time! I actually asked Jason to buy them for me less often. (I'm an ungrateful wife). I just figure it's more meaningful when it's less expected. So now he buys me flowers on random occasions rather than on holidays. I love that!
How do you spend the holidays?
Sometimes with my family, sometimes just us. And when we can, up in ID with his family.
Who is more jealous?
Jason says he is. But I honestly don't really think either of us are.
How long did it take to get serious?
Ummm...like a week? We're seriously a Mormon cliche.
Who eats more?
I refuse to answer this question.
Who does/ did the laundry?
Who’s better with the computer?
I'd say we're equally challenged. :)
Who drives when you are together?
Usually Jason, but lately me, since he only has usable one arm. :)

I tag anyone who thinks this is fun or is looking for something to post, like I was, and isn't feeling creative enough to come up with something on their own. :) Seriously though, if no one does it, I'll be sad. :(

Loved this post!! We are a mormon cliche too, but I don't mind. You guys seem like a perfect match. It would be nice to have to ask for flowers less often you lucky girl!

That was cute! It proves you guys are meant for each other. I love reading tags because people admit to stuff they wouldn't otherwise. :) Next time Jared and I are up there, we'll babysit for you guys so you can go out to eat!!

That was fun to read. I wish we lived closer so we could get together(although that never happened when we were both in Utah) :) But one of these days when we are back in the west, we will meet up!
