Thankful Thursday: The man behind this woman

My good blog-buddy, Dawn, paid tribute to her hubby earlier this week and I thought it was a great idea. So, in honor of the husband I am SO thankful for, here is my version...

What is your husband's name?
Neil James Lettre...that's where we got the "James" in Luke's name!

How long have you guys been married?
Nearly 6 years, though we have known each other twice that long. We actually dates when we were younger, went our separate ways and got back together when we were older...or, at least, in our late 20's.

How long did you date?
Both times we only dated for a few months. However, the 2nd time it was b/c we got engaged quickly and then eloped to the beach! (See pic.)

How old is he?
He just turned 38.

Who is taller?
He is taller, but not by a whole lot.

Who can sing best?
I have no doubt that he would say himself, but that would be wrong. Neither of us can sing. It doesn't stop me, though. As I often say, I can make a song out of anything!

Who is smarter?
He is definitely smarter when it comes to package design. (He has an engineering degree and works for MWV Packaging.) I handle everything else.

Who does laundry?
I do, but not because he won't help. It's because I am SO picky about laundry...especially the drying part.

Who pays the bills?
He does.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Technically no one. I sleep on the left and he sleeps in the middle. Makes me crazy.

Who mows the lawn?
He does.

Who cooks dinner?
I do the most, but he can grill something fierce!

Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
We are both stubborn and competitive, but we have improved a lot over the years.

Who kissed who first?
He did. Can you blame him???

Who wears the pants?
He does. I buy them for him, but he wears them!

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ.
Ephesians 5:2

He wears them, but I buy them! ROFL!!!

Lest anyone wonder, this is definitely written with humor. And, Neil would expect no less of me! :o)
