BD asked me.
How old are each of you?
BD is 29. I am 28.
Whose siblings do you see the most?
Well, BD is an only child. So...mine.
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Ooooohh, this is a good one! Um...I guess I'll have to say that any decision that involves large sums of money is pretty stressful.

High school - yes
Undergrad - no
Grad school - no
Are you from the same home town?
Yes. Shout-out to Funroe!
Who is smarter?
Me. DUH. Oh wait...BD is probably going to read this, so I'll tell the truth. BD.
Who is the most sensitive?
I'm pretty sure I deserve this award. Although I have to say that I'm not really super sensitive; I'm just more sensitive than BD.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
A little hole in the wall Mexican restaurant near our house called Matzatlan
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
We haven't done much traveling. I think it would be Colorado.

We were so young, so we didn't start talking marriage until we had been dating 2+ years or so.

We generally share this lovely chore. I hate to put away clean laundry so I will stack clean folded laundry on the dryer until there is a mountain. BD usually gives in first and puts it away. (See question re: stubborn)

I'm the internet guru; BD is in charge of all things computer hardware related.
Who drives when you are together?
BD. I'm usually sleeping.

I also try to find a couple of fruits in season to rotate between; they are quick and easy to throw in a lunch bag. This time of year I like all of the citrus fruits that are in season - especially the tangelos and clementines.

So this was the headline in Wednesday morning's paper prior to that night's Duke-UNC game. The boys in Carolina blue had to make the 8 mile trip from the Smith Center to Cameron Indoor and talk centered around the fact that Hansbrough and company had the chance to be the first senior class to go undefeated at Cameron since
And here is the headline from Thursday morning's paper.
That's right - round one of the greatest rivalry in all of college sports went to the Heels and the seniors made a little bit of history in the process. Below you see the little engine that could, Ty Lawson, who single-handedly took control of the game in the second half.
Stay tuned for an update of Round 2 -- March 8, 2009 at the Dean E. Smith Center.
(Fun fact: This is the same date we had 10 years ago on our first Valentine's Day date. Only we were in Louisiana, and we ended up eating dinner at Waffle House.)
Here are the two outfits I've chosen. Which one should I wear?
Outfit #1: bright pink cami (you can't really see it here), patterened tank, baby blue cropped cardigan/jeans/camel colored boots.
Outfit #2: Hot pink cami, purple scoop neck sweater, red swing jacket/jeans/boots (I have on camel colored boots in this picture but I think I'd actually wear black).

Here is my attempt at spring season decorations for the fireplace mantel. What do you think?
And what do I put on the other side? Another of the same thing? Something different? Scrap the whole thing and start over?
Here is a close-up of the arrangement. The colors are lime green, white, and pink.
I have a
2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.
4. When you're scared -- we will high tail it out of here.
5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining, ya big baby!
6. When you are confused -- I will use little words.
7. When you are sick --Stay away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.
8. When you fall -- I'll pick you up and dust you off...after I laugh my butt off!!
HAPPY WEEKEND, FRIENDS!

I found this over at Smart Cookie; she has lots of great dessert recipes.
I brought this to work yesterday and got rave reviews. In fact, everyone is still talking about it today. And bonus: it's super easy - I put the entire thing together in less than 30 minutes (not including refrigeration time).
Cookies and Cream Fudge
- 18 oz white chocolate chips
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3 generous cups of crushed oreos (Note: fudge will look different depending on how much or little you crush the cookies. I wanted mine finely crushed so BD ran them through the food processor.)
- Melt chocolate, milk, and salt together over medium heat.
- Stir in cookies
- Pour into 8x8 pan lined with wax paper & refrigerate until set (abt 2 hrs).
