Travis, my other half :)

Darcy tagged me so here goes....

1. Where did you meet your husband?
We met outside of Autumn Winds, my apartment complex in Rexburg, Idaho, in September of 2004. I was friends with a couple of his roommates and a group of people were heading to Mill Hollow for some ice cream and other stuff...and Travis came along and rode in my car.

2. How long did you date before you got married?
We started dating towards the end of October 2004, just before Trav's 23rd birthday. We got engaged at Christmas and then were married on February 18th, 4 months we dated. Yep, that's all! I put a down payment on my wedding dress the first week of November. We weren't even engaged, we had been dating maybe 2.5 weeks, but I knew!

3. How long have you been married?
Almost 4 wonderful years. 3 years, 10 months, 2 weeks, and 6 days to be exact!

4. What does he do to surprise you?
He is full of surprises. I don't even know...occasionally he has brought flowers home for me, not just any flowers, my favorite--Gerber Daisies! and he has been very helpful around the house in the evenings. It is always a nice surprise to get home from class and see things picked up/cleaned up/etc. Thanks, babe!!!

5. What is your favorite feature of his?
His eyes! And his long, dark eyelashes. And I love his smile. He is a stud...what isn't a good feature? This may be TMI for some but I think his butt looks amazing in jeans! Sorry if that embarrasses you, babe.

6.What is your favorite quality?
Probably his sense of humor. I don't always appreciate it but it is such a good thing! And he is pretty laid back...which can be not so great at times...but he is like the Yin to my Yang. I am anything but laid back about some things so I need his balance in my life!

7. Does he have a nickname for you?
You mean does he have 20 nicknames for me? Yes....I don't even think I could start to list them all...but here are a couple: Babuushk, Shmeling (or Schmeling-a-loo), Chi Chu. Don't ask where these come from or how he comes up with them. I don't remember where they came from.

8. What is his favorite food?
I'm not sure about his very, most favorite thing. I could tell you restaurants though. But even then, there are a few. Texas Road House, Bajio, Tepanyaki, those Brazilian steakhouse places that bring the meat around on skewers and slice it off for you, I could list more. But you get the point and I'm making myself hungry :)

9. What is his favorite sport?
Soccer!! But he likes to play or watch basketball...and he likes to watch football. And he likes to snowboard. But soccer is the definite favorite.

10. When and where did you first kiss?
On the couch in my Autumn Winds apartment. It was the best kiss I had ever had. I hope I never forget it! He had wanted to kiss me the night before it happened....but I made him wait just a little bit longer. ;) And I think it was worth it!

11. What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?
We just like to get out together, without kids, anywhere. We like watching movies, cuddling up together, that kind of thing.

12. Do you have children?
We do! Riley Paige is 2 years and 4 months old and Isabelle Jane is 13 months old. And....someday we will have a couple more...but not anytime soon.

13. Does he have any hidden talents?
Sure... Most people might not know he plays the guitar and sings. I love to hear him sing. He can talk like Donald Duck and Kermit the Frog. And he is pretty good at solving a Rubik's cube

14. How old is he?
Travis turned 27 this past October.

15. Who said I love you first?
I THINK he did. And of course I said it right back. I wrote about it in my journal after he left that night. Oh it is HILARIOUS to go back and read that stuff!

16. What is his favorite music?
He likes different types. Not sure which genre is his favorite, but his favorite band is Collective Soul.

17. What do you admire most about him?
That he is a good dad. And that he provides for our family's needs. I think the responsibility of providing for a family has to be a lot of pressure sometimes.

18. What is his favorite color?
Blue, I think?? Sad that I don't KNOW, isn't it. He likes to wear white T-shirts though.

19. Will he read this?
Yes, most definitely. I hope I did okay!

20. People I tag...
Amanda Hadfield, Aunt Dot, Crystal Taylor, Kim Odasso, Jen Burrup, Bree Johnson and Adrienne Odasso
