We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming...

I don't normally veer from my blog's Riley-centric focus, but I owe my good friend Katie a Q&A about...Matt! And me! So enjoy. (Or skip it if you're just into Riley.)
Your husband's name? I call him Matthew or Dude, but everyone else calls him Matt.

How long have you been together? We met ten years ago, and we got married 3 1/2 years later. (He waited patiently while I spent 1 1/2 years in Switzerland.)

Who said I love you first? I think I did... Is it terrible that we can't remember? We had dated forever by then...

Who is smarter? He says I am. I'm smart enough not to argue with that.

Who does the housework? Uh, nobody? (Ok, I do laundry, we share dishes, he does trash, and we both avoid the cleaning part.)

Who sleeps on the right? Me. (Closer to the bathroom and the child.)

Who pays the bills? I do everything with the money except earn it. (Except I'd like to think I help a little with that, too.)

Who cooks dinner? Me.

Who drives when you're together? Matt. Except those terrible Guillan-Barré months when he didn't have the ankle strength to push the gas pedal. 

Who's more stubborn? I think I am. Matt thinks he is. But honestly, neither of us really are.

Who kissed whom first? Matt made the move. Out of nowhere.

Who asked whom out first? Huh? Dates? We had Biology 101 together. Too busy studying to date. (We really studied, I swear! And we both got A's to prove it!)

Who proposed? Matt, in five feet of snow in Provo Canyon.

Who has more siblings? Me, no contest. 11 vs. 4.

Who wears the pants? We share them. (We really are the same pant size! Pathetic for us both, eh?)

Any other questions?

Back when we were young and carefree.

Angela said...

Meredith said...

Lucy, Marc and Katie said...

Biology 101? Sounds suspicious!

Breanne said...

I love your posts about Riley, but it's nice to hear more about you too! I enjoy hearing other's background stories.

So was that biology 101 as freshmen?...or was Matt a sophomore already? I'm trying to put it all together in my mind :)

By the way, you can say you help make the money - you helped sell us our mobile! (which we love --- still need to send you pics don't I?)

Madelyn said...

young and carefree? You both still look like that! Loved learning more about you! You have 11 siblings? Woah.

Jennifer said...

Very fun, Kathryn. I love that you have 11 siblings. Very, very cool.

Kathryn said...

I think I answered the siblings thing wrong. I have 10 sibling, and Matt has 3. (I still win!)

susannah said...

Ha ha, you only have ten. I still have you beat on that one. On another note, I miss you so call me!

Julianne said...

I love the Paris photo of yourselves, that's the way we take pictures too (it seems if we are ever pushy enough to ask someone else to take it Richard's head gets cut off).

I'm a little late in reading this, but that was so cute.
