Me and My Other Half

Happy Friday everyone! Amber did this fun post today that I did for facebook a long time ago. Since I always talk about Eric and our wedding on the blog I figured you might as well learn a bit more about us :)

What are your middle names?
Gail (mine), Richard (his)

How long have you been together?
It will be five years in March. Whoa.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Less than 2 months. We pretty much dated from the beginning.

Who asked whom out?
Eric said, "so can I call you my girlfriend now?" (very Eric)

How old are each of you?
I'm 25, Eric is 28.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Due to football Eric doesn't really see anyone, and my brother is in college in Connecticut so I haven't seen too much of anyone but my sister lately. But, in general we see them pretty equally, we are both really close with our families.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
We don't really have a lot of hard situations, but probably the subject we "debate" about most often is the fact that I am always exhausted at night and like to go to bed, and he likes to stay up late. This is fine when we are home, but causes a lot of anxiety for me when we are out at night because I know that if I stay up late I am still going to be up by 7am (internal body clock), so I'll end up just getting no sleep. My life would be a lot easier if people in general would be more social during the day. I have always wondered why if everyone is sitting home during the day we can't just all hang out and then get to bed at night. Haha...I'll make an awesome grandma I know...

Did you go to the same school?
Nope, never.

Are you from the same home town?
Nope, our home towns are about 15-20 minutes apart.

Who is smarter?
It all depends what you mean by smart. Eric remembers everything. If he sees it, he will remember it. He also knows a lot of random information. I am definitely more of a school person though, if that counts towards smartness.

Who is the most sensitive?
Eric says me, but I don't know about that...we both have our sensitive issues

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Lately we have really been switching it up a lot so it's hard to say. Eric and I love to eat out more than basically anything else, so there are a lot of restaurants in our life :)

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
I think that would be Greece.

Who has the craziest exes?
According to Eric, he does- but fortunately I have not had the pleasure of dealing with any of his crazy exes!

Who has the worst temper?
Eric- when driving, Kelly- when hungry or tired

Who does the cooking?
Actually Eric and I cook completely separately. As in, I cook for myself and he cooks for himself. We are pretty stubborn when it comes to what we like and there is a lot I can't eat, so...we just act like roommates who cook for ourselves.

Who is the neat-freak?
Neither of us, but both of us have our things we like to be neat. And both of us have our moments where we are like, "AH this needs to be cleaned!"

Who is more stubborn?
We are both pretty stubborn. It doesn't cause a lot of fights though, because we basically just do things on our own the way we want them done.

Who hogs the bed?
No one, we have a giant King. But I hog blankets.

Who wakes up earlier?
Me. By hours.

Where was your first date?
Fenway theater, we saw Coach Carter.

Who is more jealous?
Neither of us really gets jealous.

How long did it take to get serious?
I can't really pinpoint the exact time that I was like, "this is serious" but I would guess it was sometime during the first summer we were dating. We were never really that casual though...

Who eats more?
Eric eats more, I eat more often.

Who does the laundry?
We both did our own laundry for the past two years of living together, but we are just now starting to do each others laundry. Neither of us really mind doing laundry.

Who’s better with the computer?
We are both pretty good with the computer, Eric might be slightly better, but I make up for it in passion, I love the computer way more!

Who drives when you are together?
We switch off. Eric drives us more frequently, but my car has better gas mileage so I tend to drive to the Cape and on longer trips.

I hope you learned something new, and maybe you can relate to some of these?


  1. oh my gosh this is so fun.. Eric sounds like such a winner :)!

  2. Yay thanks for playing a long! In retrospect I totally agree with some of your answers:

    Who eats more?
    Eric eats more, I eat more often.

    Who has the worst temper?
    Eric- when driving, Kelly- when hungry or tired

    Both of those answers are THE EXACT SAME for me too! Haha

  3. sweet!!! this is a great list! i loved reading more about you guys. i can definitely relate on a lot of these!

  4. Cute Q+A! I love learning more about bloggers :)

  5. My hub when we became 'offical.' "So can I like call you my girlfriend now?" Ahhh love.

  6. These were fun to read! And I totally agree about the hanging out earlier thing. Why do we all wait around & then go out at like 9 or 10 or whatever? I hate that because I kind of prefer to leave the bar around 10 or 11 so I can be in bed by 12... I am a total grandma!

  7. Ummm..where is MY comment?! haha, jk. I could have interpreted that question wrong, by the way, I just have a sick mind :)

  8. I can def. relate to some of those. I do think 15-20 min is still hometowns. do you guys live in one of those hometowns?

  9. fun survey-thingy! i may do this sometime for myself and my person :)
