Ok, so I was tagged by my friend Noelle, but I had already answered that tag, so I borrowed a different tag as to not disappoint Noelle, or you, my faithful readers. I am sure you are so anxious to read all about goes. This is all about my sweetheart...

Whose temper is worse? takes a lot to get him fired up
Who does the laundry? Me
Who folds the laundry? me
Who does the dishes? most of the time me

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? When you look at the bed I am at the right...he is closest to the clock.
Who pays the bills? Him gotta love online billing...and I could never figure it out
Who cooks dinner? me and the papa murphy's....oh and Neil on Sunday's

Who drives when you are together? Neil....unless he is so tired he is afraid he will fall asleep

Who is more stubborn? Neil and I don't really argue much, but when it comes to saying takes a while for I don't really know how to answer that...I guess I wouldn't say either of us are really stubborn.

Who proposed? Him.
Who has more friends? I do I always say I am his social director...he would stay home all the time if it weren't for me
Who has more siblings? Neil for sure...he has 9 siblings...I have 2

Who wears the pants in the family? The key is to make him think he does!haha. Really we agree on most everything...Neil is so easygoing that when he has a real definate stand on something I usually try to go with it...and I have been happy about it. He makes great choices!

Things you may not know....Neil grew up a farm boy....and loves farming. We wouldn't still be doing it today if we had the money for our own farm. He loves motorbikes, tinkering with cars and building things...especially out of wood. He can fix just about anything. Neil is super with the kids..he has always gotten up with the babies...part of the reason there won't be an Emrie Schwendiman coming to live in our household!(he is DDDOOOONNNNEE!!!) When Brooke was a baby I woke up in the middle of the night, looked over and noticed that Neil had a pillow on him tummy and was patting it....I guess trying to get it to go back to sleep! What a great dad, husband, friend etc. etc.! Love you Hon!

Don't pay attention to the prewaxed eyebrows, or the 90's hair and veil...just notice the cute guy to my left!
Neil helped coach Camden and Easton's t-ball team and coached Camdens basketball team this year! What a great dad! And now 14 lbs. lighter!
