I saw this Q&A on my friend Lachelle’s blog and I thought it would be a great way to end this post:
What is your husband’s full name? Sean McEwen Ricks
How long have you been married? Four years today
How long did you date? Seven months before his mission and about a year after he got home we got engaged.
What do you love most about him? He is truly the best person I know in every way. He’s thoughtful, loving, hard working, hilarious, charitable, honest, genuine, sexy and about a million other things!
Who eats more sweets? I think we’re about even. Sean tends to snack more, where I usually want something sweet after dinner.
Who said “I love you” first? Sean
How old is he? 26
Who is taller? Sean. He’s 6’5”. Hooray for me since I am around 6 feet tall! His height is one of the things I love most about him. I love being married to a guy where I can stand up straight next to him and be proud of my height. I can even wear heels!
Who is smarter? We are both smart in different ways. Sean is awesome when it comes to math and science (not my strongest subjects) and I excel more in English/writing. Makes sense since he graduated in mechanical engineering and I graduated in pr. Overall, I think between the two of us we’re in good shape to help our kids with their homework ;)
Who can sing better? Sean has an awesome voice. He’s never been in a choir or anything, but he is really talented. I was in choir all throughout Jr. High and High School so I feel like I can carry a tune J
Who does the laundry? I do. I’ve shrunk many t-shirts in my day!
Who pays the bills? We both work, but Sean gets paid a lot more! I am in charge of making sure they are paid in time.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Sean. I have a deviated septum and when I roll on my right side it is a lot harder for me to breathe. Therefore I will always be on the left until I get my nose fixed!
Who mows the lawn? Our homeowners association. They also shovel our snow and plant flowers. It’s fabulous!
Who cooks dinner? I do. I love to cook and luckily Sean is not picky (as long as pickles, cottage cheese or meatballs are not involved….) Sean’s pretty uninterested with being in the kitchen but his dad is an amazing cook so I still have hope!
Who drives? Sean does when we are together. He loves driving and cars in general.
Who is more stubborn? Me, hands down. It’s a life-long struggle I’m working on.
Who asked who out? Sean asked me to go with him to his senior prom in high school. It was our first official date and I about died with excitement when he asked me.
Who kissed who first? Sean kissed me. It was after the prom!
Who has more siblings? Sean has 5 kids in his family and I have 4.
Who wears the pants? Ultimately Sean does, but we collaborate together on any major decisions.
Happy anniversary babe! I hope you’re having a great time in Philly. I miss you and am looking forward to many more great years together!
