The Spousal Game {+A Special Birthday!}

Get Your Shine On by Florida Georgia Line on Grooveshark

It's only appropriate that I start this post off with a dedication to my little Texas blondie for her birthday! Yup, Steph is 27 today! I mean, we did meet through our blogs, so that means that without this blog of mine, she would never be in my life and that is absolutely CRAZY to think about. I don't even want to think about that..nope. Not for one minute at all.

It all started with a simple email from said blondie Texan who had found my blog and was asking me questions about my wedding pictures. It didn't take long for things to get much more serious so we started texting, the texting turned into many phone calls, and then the realization of "Holy crap! this person is my other half...how did I ever survive before? This is so weird" came about. Then, we spontaneously went on a trip together and had the greatest time in all of the land (and our husbands developed a lovely bromance), then we got back from said trip together and talked every single day (and still do!) and realized how much it sucks living so far away, planned another visit for them to visit our home/city here, then we missed each other in between way too much again and we had some catching up to do so me and Billy flew out to Texas to see their stomping grounds and spend 5 days in their beautiful home. Now, I'm sitting all the way across the U.S from her, instead of being there celebrating her birthday by eating mexican, drinking iced coffee/Corona's/vodka soda's on her front porch, and singing Florida Georgia Line. Sad face. But no fret- this story and the memories are to be continued...

Not mentioned in mini story: how thankful I am for my friendship with Steph. It's hard to meet people in general these days that you can really trust, be completely yourself around, feel like you've known since you were little, and like your sitting next to your best friend after actually only knowing them a short amount of time. That's what Steph's friendship is to me. We are incredibly sarcastic towards each other (if you even saw our conversations...), but at the drop of the hat, we can be calling each other for advice. It's never a dull moment in this friendship of ours, that's for sure...

So, last week I saw this awesome spousal game over on Christina's lovely blog and knew I wanted to ask Billy these questions to test his (and mine) knowledge about each other. I also took it a little further by taking a little page out of Erin's book from a while back and asked Billy even more questions at the bottom. The man had some funny answers. Take a look (and feel free to play along with your spouse!)....

How long have you been married:
b: 2 years 9 months
k: 2 years 9 months

Where was our first date:
b: Outback
k: Outback (in Bowling Green!)

Where was our first kiss:
b: in the jimmy
k: in the jimmy (his old car at the time) in a fast food parking lot. Classy!

Who said I love you first:
b: Katie
k: Me!

What were our wedding colors:
b: teal blue, orangeish
k: teal blue, orange, and some others mixed in!

My most commonly used phrase:
b: "what a bug!"
k: "really?!" (I do say what a bug alllll the time...)

My celebrity crush:
b: Rob Pattinson
k: Brody Jenner

....Billy's response to my answer? "He's not a celebrity" Touche.

If you would order drinks for both of us, what would it be:
b: Vodka cranberry or a Corona for you, Coors Light for me
k: Corona for me, Coors Light for you (I do get vodka cranberriesor vodka/soda often!)

Best meal she's ever cooked you:
b: Her moms lasagna
k: My mom's lasanga-he loves it.

Worst meal she's ever cooked you:
b: Stuffed peppers with that quinoa
k: The ones where I get home from the gym and say "I'm too tired to cook" so no meal ends up happening. ;)

...Billy is NOT a fan of quinoa!

What is my most played song on ipod:
b: that song you've been singing lately...Wagon Wheel
k: Right now, Wagon Wheel. For sure.

What would she say your most annoying habit is:
b: Not sitting still
k: His hair in the sink or not being able to sit still! (I swear he moves his hands, legs, etc about 50 times when we sit on the couch or watch a movie)

What is the last thing I do before bed:
b: try beating me to bed or kiss rocky goodnight
k: kiss Rocky goodnight

...I kiss him, too! ;) Rocky is just the last one.Beating him to bed is another fav of mine...we will be brushing our teeth,etc. and I will try and hurry to be the first one in bed! It's like a little cheesy game we play, haha.

If you could throw out one item of my clothes, what would it be:
b: Your old north face
k: Old A&F navy/white pants that say a year on the butt. (No joke! So old!)

Your favorite thing about her:
b: Her genuine heart and how comfortable she makes other people feel when talking to them
k: My personality and how easy I am to talk to

Her go-to drink at Starbucks (or what I like recently):
b: Low fat milk hazelnut macchiato "or is that just your new one?"
k: Skinny Iced Hazelnut Macchiato

...impressed he knew this, I've only gotten it 2 or 3 times!

Her order from Chipotle (because let's be serious, this matters!):
b: Salad with black beans, vegetables, corn, tomatoes, hot sauce, tiny bit of cheese, and guacamole
k: Salad with black beans, veggies, corn, tomatoes, green hot sauce, a little bit of cheese [can you tell I stress this to him?! ha], and guacamole

...he has that one down. ;)

For this second part, I gave Billy certain things or words and told him to tell me "What do you think of when you hear..."

your style: comfortable
blogging: chicks that sometimes wear fake glasses and updo hair and lots of boots
music: jason aldean
food: pizza
drink: coke
blood clots: stare death straight in the eyes twice (he's had two of them!)
work: meaningful
money: retirement
my shopping habits: could be better
ideal day: golfing, sunshine, 80's, family and friends
chores: vacuuming
movies: better be good
rocky: my little bud
cooking: always need an appetizer
30: shitty
instagram: chicks post pictures

vegetarian: you but you weren't born that way
vlogging: i forget what that is

Andddd that's a wrap.
