Ok, so my BFF Sarah just tagged me on her blog.  I guess she was tagged all these questions, and after answering them she had to pass them to other people.  I was one of the (un)lucky ones. It reminds me of one of those chain letters.  Since I don't have a ton of stuff on here, I thought I would go for it.  Besides, it gives me a great chance to talk about one of my favorite things...

What is your husband's name? Lincoln Elliott Fielding

How long have you been married? It has been 4 months 5 hours 12 minutes and 50 seconds... but who's counting.

How long did you date? We are still dating, we are just married now.  But we dated for about five or six months before we got engaged and we then were married about 3 or 4 months after. It is all very loose since we talked about marriage before we officially got engaged and we went out a few times before we officially considered ourselves as a couple.

How old is he? He is only 25.  I am 5 years older!  This was pretty hard on me at first, but he talked me through it pretty well.  And, let's be honest, I am a very young 30. 

Who eats sweets? ONLY me!  Lincoln does not eat anything bad.  He doesn't eat candy, cake, cookies, chips, soda, I could go on and on.  He just has amazing will power.  I feel like a slug around him. 

Who said "I Love You" first? That would be him.  I was giving him until Christmas to say it.  I thought it would be nice for me to let him make this move in our relationship.  He said it way before I was planning on ever saying it.  It blew me away.

Who is taller?  I am...ok, he is taller.  I have this horrible mindset that I am taller than everyone.  He is constantly reminding me that he is like 4 inches taller.  I just don't see it.  I have a freakishly long torso, and when we sit next to each other I am about his height.  He has really long legs and beats me out in the height department there.   

Who can sing best? He blows me away on this one.  People are always telling us in church that we sound so great together singing the hymns.  Little do they know, I am not singing, they are just hearing his angelic voice.  

Who is smarter?   Ouch, are you serious?  How about I let you decide.  He is a third year law student at Ohio State with a Bachelors in Economics from BYU that he got in only two years.  I went to Ricks for two and a half years when it was only a two year school, I just really liked my friends.  Yes, I do hair and I love it and I am good at it, but that doesn't make me smart, just lucky that I found a skill I can do.  I am also pretty sure that was a run-on sentence.  I guess you can say I am more of the street smart variety. 

Who does the laundry? Lincoln is very good at starting the laundry.  I don't think he cleans out the lint trap that often, but I can't complain since he is doing the laundry without me asking.   

Who pays the bills? We both do it.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? He sleeps on the entire bed, and I try to fit in wherever I can.  But his pillow is on the left and mine is on the right.

Who mows the lawn? We have a condo, so neither of us do.  I have only used a lawn mower one time in my life... I'm just saying. 

Who cooks dinner? I am really working on this.  He cooks better than me, but I do it more often.  It is really hard with our crazy schedules.  We eat a lot of cereal and sandwiches.  

Who drives? I don't enjoy driving.  Lincoln does it and he puts up with me freaking out whenever I think we might hit something.  I am a very scared passenger.  It is not a good thing, but he is really patient with me. 

Who is the first to admit they are wrong? I feel so bad saying this, but I think he is.  I am so defensive that I don't usually think I am in the wrong without a reason for being wrong.  I always have to explain why I did something to help prove my point.  I am working on just being wrong.  

Who kissed who first? Totally me!  That's why I wanted him to say, "I love you" first.  We were in his apartment pretending to watch t.v.  I had put myself in the most perfect position ever for him to just lean in and kiss me.  It was like handing it to him on a silver platter!  He wasn't taking the bait.  I could tell he was freaking out.  Finally I said, "kiss me Lincoln."  It was great. We laugh about it now all the time.  

Who asked who out first? He asked me out first.  It was so random and out of the blue.  We had been friends for like 2 years and neither of us ever thought about dating each other.  Our first few dates were not uber romantic.  They were just really fun and comfortable.  In fact, he didn't even walk me to the door after one of our first dates.  He finally got the idea that I was interested in him too and he started to put himself out there a little more.  The dates just keep getting better and better.    

Who wears the pants? Lincoln is very respectful about my ideas and thought on things.  We don't really have a "leader" between us.  I am old-fashioned and willing to let him take more of the lead.  We are still new at this, we might settle into something, but until then we are both very open about things.  

There it is.  I can't think of anyone else who I want to tag that wasn't already tagged by Sarah. I hope this fulfills my blog tagging responsibilities.

Thank you, Mallory! Your tagging responsibilities have been accomplished. I LOVED reading all this stuff about you and Lincoln. I didn't know a lot of it, so it was fun to get some insight into your relationship. I can't believe Lincoln doesn't eat anything bad! How does he do that?! I WISH I had that will-power! It would help me lose the 25 pounds I'm dying to get rid of. Plus, you told me you didn't think this post was funny and I found it pretty hilarious! My favorite answer you gave was the "who's smarter?" question. I was cracking up! The best line was that you went to a 2 year school for 2 1/2 years! I could not stop laughing!

Yay for Mallory starting a blog. I love hearing about you and Lincoln, and I love that you are cooking more. Let's be honest... I'm not that smart either, especially now that I know Lincoln majored in economics, which I barely passed at BYU. Yikes...

I hope that my tagging responsibilities have been fulfilled also. I love it! You are so sweet and funny. I thought it was great! It is fun to hear more about it. And that is amazing that Lincoln doesn't eat anything bad...how does he do that? He should write a book.
