tagged times two.

I've been tagged a few times recently and am just now getting around to it. So, here's more than you ever wanted to know about me:


.Where did you meet?
We met in huntington beach ... through a mutual friend in the singles ward (it does work!).
2. How long did you date before you got married?
We dated for a little over a year.
3. How long have you been married?
We were married in March of 3 1/2 years
4. What is your favorite feature of his?
His blue eyes and I love how tall he is (gotta give my kids some hope, ya know?)
5. What is your favorite quality of his?
It's hard to pick a favorite. I love how calm and optimistic he always is. He really knows how to bring me back to earth when I am freaking out and remind me that everything is going to be ok. I also love that he knows so much about so many things and can fix pretty much anything.
6. Does he have a nickname for you?
Babe or Love Love
7. What is his favorite color?
This changes all the time. Your guess is as good as mine.
8. What is his favorite food?
Ummm... he would rather take a pill than have to eat, so that's a toughie. Lately he's been addicted to Turtle Chex Mix. I guess Italian is always good.
9. What is his favorite sport?
does making fun of people obsessed with sports count?
10. When and where was your first kiss?
Let's see. It was at his apartment. We were strangely making the transition from being "just friends" to more... that pretty much did the trick. It was spring of 2004 - we'd been friends for 3 or 4 months.
11. What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?
watch movies, talk about the future, play with owey.
12. Do you have any children?
yes, 1.5
13. Does he have a hidden talent?
Clint's talents aren't very hidden - he is an amazing artist, a great father, an excellent student, a whiz at all things handy, and pretty much everyone who knows him has seen it all in action.
14. How old is he?
15.Who said "I love you" first?
He did. I thought it would freak me out more than it did since my heart was still pretty guarded at the time, but I was surprised at my reaction and that helped me realize that this was a very good thing.
16. What is his favorite type of music?
Anything reminiscent of Johnny Cash or Beck
17. What do you admire the most about him?
His dedication and willingness to do whatever it takes to take care of his family and do what is right. This experience going back to school has made me realize that I really am lucky to be married to someone who is so determined to do things right and be a good example to his kids no matter how late in the game it is. I also just love watching him with our son. There are few things that make me happier.
18. Do you think he will read this?
Yes. and be totally embarrassed.

Yeah for tags...I am so glad I got to meet Clint and know first hand what a good guy he is! I am also so glad that he gets to be married to you--you are a catch, too:) Love the pictures of Owey's first b-day (did I tell you that?). You are too cute with all your creativity. I hope you're feeling all right and I am DYING to see what you're having: my guess is girl!
