One for the Guys

I stole this survey from my friend Emily. I thought everyone would enjoy hearing a little about Brandon since he doesn't post on here. Hopefully he doesn't mind...

Name? Brandon Kaye Salmon

How long have you been married? 1 year, 8 months, 6 days, and 7 hours

How long did you date? Um, roughly about 6 months.

How old is he? 24

Who eats more? I'm sure I eat more treats while we're both at work but when it comes to meal times, he does.

Who said I love you first? He did. Followed momentarily by me. :)

Who is taller? Him by far!

Who sings better? Um, if anyone knows us very well, this is an easy question to answer. One thing me and Brandon actually agree on is that I am 100% tone deaf. He likes to listen closely to me in Sacrament Meeting and see if I can hit ANY of the notes.

Who is smarter? Once again, Brandon by far. Like, REALLY far.

Who's temper is worse? Well, it would appear to be me since I'm more vocal about it. He just pulls the silent treatment if he's mad. Okay, who are we kidding, it's me for sure.

Who does the laundry? I probably do most of the time but he definitely knows how. And every once in a while he surprises me and does it.

Who does the dishes? Both, but definitely Brandon more often. He finishes dinner so fast that he'll get up and do the dishes and he usually ends up taking my plate for me when my last bite is mid-air between the plate and my mouth. It's a great system we've got going.

Who pays the bills? He pays the credit card bills, others are automatic, and I pay rent. But that's probably just because I made us order girly checks and I think they're cute.

Who mows the lawn? Uh...we don't have a lawn. But if we did, it would be him for sure. Brandon loves working out in the yard. Someday we'll have one of our own.

Who cooks dinner? I cook the dinners that look nice and he cooks the dinners that taste good.

Who is more stubborn? Ha! Both of us are way more stubborn than any two people combined. Makes for some interesting times... :)

Who is the first to admit they are wrong? Probably me, only because he's not usually wrong.

Whose parents do you see more? His because we can walk to their house and there's a whole lot more going on there than at my parents' house. But we are faithful monthly family dinner attenders with my family.

Who has more friends? He has more friends that actually call him and want to do stuff with him, but he's bad at keeping in touch with them. Me, I keep in touch with everyone because I love it. But mostly we just do stuff with our family.

Who has more siblings? We both come from families of 8. And we both love it.

Who wears the pants? He would say I do, I would say I wish I didn't. It's just that I like to get things done, and he likes to procrastinate. :)

Gosh, you guys are so sweet! It makes me jealous. Maybe I need to have an attitude change.....I am happy for you two and you are such a handsome looking couple too! I can tell you truly love each other!

Barb said...

I love hearing about people's stories. I do remember the tone deaf part.... :-P Just kidding

Ryan + Jess said...

Steph, it sounds like you've whipped Brandon into shape. Cooking? Dishes? Laundry? I just hope Jess never gets around to reading your post . . .

I have a good idea, get a pass to the rec and come with me. I will be there tomorrow if you want to stop by. You still haven't called to hang out.
