5 Year Anniversary!

I can not believe that Troy and I have been married for 5 years!

Here's a fun little tag about Troy (& a little about me!)

What is his name? Troy Wilkins

Profession: Farmer in the spring/summer/fall months
Carpenter, handy man, Photographer in the 'off' seasons.

How long have you been married? 5 years

Who is older? Troy is by 7 years, 11 months and 2 weeks. We say 8 years :)

Who is taller? Troy by alot!

Who has more speeding tickets? I do, but Troy has been pulled over WAY more than I have and have gotten off the hook on all but one! No fair!

Who can sing better? Neither one of us do much of the singing stuff, but Troy can sure sing LOUDER and come up with funnier little tunes when we are at home!

How long did you date? Not very long! Our first date was on the 4th of July then after that we didn't go out until basketball started first of November. We were engaged by February (12th to be exact)and married in March (it was either March before farming or November after farming...we are both glad we did the March choice!) But I had 'known' him since I was a Jr. in High School.

Who eats more? Troy.

Who said I love you first? I did. Then quickly tried to cover it up and deny that I said it!

Who is smarter? Hands down Troy. He amazes me with how much knowledge he has in his head! He knows so much that watching jeopardy with him he gets almost half of the answers and I am lucky to get two!

Whose temper is worse? Mine for sure. I hate being teased and Troy is the King of teasing so I lose it quite often in that department!

Who does the laundry? Me. He helps me once in awhile by switching the clothes from the washer to the dryer or by putting away his clothes, but mostly it's me doing all the work.

Who does the dishes? Me. Again, he helps once in a while when asked. I prefer to clean up after meals because his 'standards' of cleaning after a meal is totally different than mine so I would rather do it and get it done the way I want it done rather than have to go back and do what he didn't do.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Looking at the bed Troy does. When we first got married I did but after we had Taylor the bassinet was placed on the left so we switched so I can get up with her easier. Then we just never switched back, works out though because it's closer to the door so I can attend to the kid(s) easier and make my nightly potty breaks a little less to walk!

Who pays the bills? I do, except for a few farm bills (chemicals, fertilizer, seed etc) Troy is in charge of those.

Who cooks dinner? Me. Troy will come up with something once in awhile, but usually it's "He eats what I cook/feel like"

Who drives when you are together? Troy-no questions asked. Unless we are going to/from a far destination and he is tired, mostly it's me sleeping though!

Who is more stubborn? Troy. He will probably say I am, but once he determines he is/isn't going to do something chances are it will stay that way.

Whose parents do you see the most? For Troy's parents only living a mile down the road, you would think it would be them, but I think Troy sees them more than my parents (the shop is at their house) and I visit my parents more without him. So I would say we both see our own parents more than the in-laws!

Who proposed? Troy

Who has more friends? Tricky. I have stayed in touch WAY better with my friends from High School than he has. We have a few mutual couple friends (from the ward) but we don't really get together with them much (or at all) He knows more people for sure. So basically I don't know how to answer this question!

Who has more siblings? Troy does by one. He has 7 total in his family and I have 6 total.

Who wears the pants in the family? Troy. Isn't the man suppose to 'wear the pants' and be the head of the family?!!??

Here's to many many more wonderful years with the love of my life!
Love you tons Troy! *Muah*

Thanks for the info about the blog. I think it still looks good, but I was shocked to see all white :0)! Is there a way to do separate profiles for two blogs?

Congrats, time goes by way too fast. Maybe I should get rid of the sweater I wore to your reception, huh? Love the pictures of Troy.

Oh, how glad we were that someone was willing to put up with our uncle, so he wouldn't spend the rest of his life hanging out with his nieces 1-2 times a week. (Okay, maybe a bit sad, too!) You got a good one-- congrats on 5 years.

Congrats Alisha. 5 years is a big one. I think if you can make it past the first 5 years, you can make it through eternity! :)
I hope you guys got to do something fun! Andy and I went to Lagoon on our 5th-how would you and Parker like to do that?:0
