The Not-So-Newlywed Game

Happy 4th Anniversary to my hubs!


Or 11th anniversary, depending on how you look at it. Here we are 11 years ago, two months after we started dating.


Eleven years later, we’re a little more fit, hubs can see without his glasses, and I decided I don’t like my hair super short.


So just for fun, I’m copying this girl’s post and doing a little not-so-newlywed game for our anniversary. Hubs and I answered the same questions and hopefully we’ll have the same answers. (This should be interesting…)

1. How long have we been married?

Him: 3 years.  (<— sigh)
Her: 4 years today.

2.  When and where did we meet?

Him: At work, 10 years ago. (< — he’s lost a year somewhere)
Her: At work in 2002.

3. What is his worst habit?

Her: Using the floor in our bedroom as a “closet.”
Him: Leaving papers all over the place. (<—also true)

4.  Where was our first kiss?

Her:  On the couch in my old apartment while watching Charade.
Him:  On the couch after watching Jeepers Creepers. (< —- also true)

5.  Who said I love you first?

Her:  He did. Locked it down!
Him:  I don’t know. Probably me.

6.  If you were going to order us drinks, what would you get us?

Her: Jack and diet for him. Crowne and diet for me.
Him:  Some sort of whiskey and diet. Or vodka and soda. Or beer. I dunno. I usually ask first, she drinks everything.

7.  What is your favorite thing about her?

Her:  My sense of humor.
Him: Her laugh and how she thinks everything is funny.

8.  What is his favorite movie?

Her: Alien
Him: Aliens (< — eh, I was close.)

9.  What is her dream job?

Her: Being a voice on The Simpsons. You’re rich, get to go into work in PJs, and can live a normal life because no one really recognizes your face.
Him: Housewife  < —jerk 🙂 But yeah, that’s true too.

10.  What is her biggest pet peeve?

Her:  There are so many. Let’s go with the toilet paper going under instead of over.
Him:  Pretty sure it’s something I do.

11.  Where was your first date?

Her:  At the movies. We saw Shallow Hal.
Him: Shallow Hal.

12.  Who is her celebrity crush?

Her:  Robert Downey Jr is an acceptable answer but there are so many.
Him:  I don’t know, you have so many. Jason Ackles.  (<— He means Jensen.)

Alright, that wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I guess I’ll keep him a little while longer. 🙂

    How fun! Now I want to ask my husband some of these questions to see if he can get them all right 😉 At least he knows we just celebrated our 10-year dating anniversary and our 6-year wedding anniversary. No missing years here!

    I think I would slap my husband if he didn’t know how long we have been married!

      He knows. He’s just being a pain in the ass. 🙂 For the first 5 years we dated, I’m the one that got our anniversary date wrong!

  7. Cute!

    Happy Anniversary!
