Questionnaire About Race & Me

My good blogging friend and real life friend Kylie tagged me in this fun post with questions about how things work in our marriage/relationship. I hope you enjoy getting to know Race and I a little better!  

{Side note: Race and I really need more pictures of just the two of us! This is from a year and a half ago!}

1. Who is your man?
Race W Ashby

2. How long have you been together?
Since we started dating: 3 years and a couple of months

3. Dating/Engaged/Married?
Officially dating February 26, 2010 // Engaged May 27, 2010 // Married September 3rd, 2010 {Pretty fast, eh?}

4. How old is your man?
He just turned 25! 

You or your man?

1. Who eats more?
I would say I do. Race eats WAY more sweets but not very much when it comes to actual meals. And since I've been pregnant/breastfeeding I eat A LOT. 

2. Who said "I love you" first?
This is embarrassing but Race and I actually don't know. He says that I said it first and I say that he said it first. Haha. I honestly can't remember the exact moment it happened. I guess I might need to go back and read some journal entries about it! 

3. Who weighs more?
Race. Although when I was pregnant I think we were pretty dang close to the same!

4. Who sings better?
Definitely Race. I'm not very good and I'm embarrassed to sing so that doesn't help at all. 

5. Who's older?
Race by a little bit under two years. 

6. Who's smarter?
Race says it totally depends on the subject. I would say we're pretty close in smartness although Race is a WAY better writer. 

7. Who's temper is worse?
Mine. Definitely. Race is pretty level headed but I get mad and I don't let it go until we talk it out and find a solution. 

8. Who does the laundry?
Almost always me. Race will switch it over for me when I ask him to but I don't mind doing the laundry for the most part and I'm really particular about how things get folded and put away so I just take care of it. 

9. Who does the dishes?
It used to be pretty even but I would say that now I do them more. Race has made a goal to always do the dishes before playing video games though so that might change! {Also I should give Race credit for the housework he does that aren't in these questions. Race ALWAYS takes the garbage out. I have taken it out MAYBE five times since we've gotten married. Also Race almost always does the sweeping, mopping and vacuuming. He's awesome!} 

10. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
If you're facing the bed then I do. We always sleep the opposite of our normal when we aren't in our own bed though. I don't know why but it always happens.

11. Who's feet are bigger?
Race's. Although if mine grow every pregnancy and decide not to shrink back to their normal size then I might just catch up! Haha. Not really but I'd be close. Although nevermind I don't know how shoe sizes translate between genders...

12. Who's hair is longer?
Mine. Thank goodness.  

13. Who's better with the computer?
Race. I know just enough to get by. 

14. Who pays the bills?
Both but mostly Race. I am always in charge of the phone bill but Race usually takes care of the rest. 

15. Who cooks dinner?
Almost always me. Race is convinced he doesn't know how to cook anything other than heating up a corn dog in the microwave. I'm sure that's not the case but he's at work til late every night anyway so it just works for me to cook. 

16. Who drives when you are together?
Race almost always does. I actually really don't like driving so I won't do it unless he's not feeling good or something. 

17. Who pays when you go out to dinner?
Usually Race but we have joint accounts so it's not like it really makes a difference. Race is learning a skill that my dad has {that I love} where as soon as the waiter/waitress brings your bill you have your card ready for them so that you aren't waiting around all night for them to come around again. I just like it because you can stay and chat for however long but when you are ready to leave you don't have to try and get their attention. 

18. Who's the most stubborn?
I think that I am more often stubborn but Race definitely has a few things that he is really stubborn about. 

19. Who is the first one to admit when they're wrong?
I would say we're pretty evenly split on this one. Although we both say that we are first to admit when we are wrong more than the other one. Haha. At night though it's usually me because I can't fall asleep mad at Race. I just have to cuddle with him and I don't cuddle when I'm mad so I just have to decide to get over it and say sorry. 

20. Whose parents do you see more?
Neither now that we live in Idaho. When we visit we try to spend equal time with both of our families. When we lived in AZ it was definitely my family. They were closer and there were a lot more baby blessings and family things to go to. 

21. Who kissed who first?
Race kissed me first. 

22. Who asked who out?
Race asked me out after inviting himself over bearing the gift of ice cream. 

23. What did you do?
On our first date we had a pirate theme because we may or may not have watched a pirated movie. So we went to Michael's and got crayons and candles to make pirate candles and then we went to Target to get some sparkling cider {the bottles were also for the pirate candles} and then we picked up Subway for dinner and headed over to Race's apartment to watch Avatar and make our awesome pirate candles. 

24. Who's more sensitive?
Definitely me. I think Race has cried maybe twice since I've known him. 

25. Who's taller?
Race. He is 5'10" and I am {almost} 5'1" 

26. Who is more indecisive?
Usually me. Although when it comes to picking something to watch off of Netflix or something Race can browse for hours. I'm not sure if that's because he is indecisive or because he just enjoys browsing. Hmmm.

27. Who has more siblings?
Me. I have eight brothers and two sisters and Race has two sisters and two brothers. 

28. Who wears the pants in the relationship?
Race says that he does and I would probably agree. 

29. Who has the best husband ever?
That would be me! 

And now I tag Kara of Not a Couple's Blog and Alexis of Alexis Laughs and anyone else who would like to do this because I would love to read your answers! It's fun to see how different everyone's relationships are. 


  1. This was fun to read! I'll definitely do one! Also, this is random, but I had no idea you are only (almost) 5'1"! Ha, it's funny the things you don't consider when you've never met someone in real life.

  2. Yay I'm glad you did it :) I love reading your answers. I thought Race cooked for you when you were dating? Maybe that was my imagination.

  3. Aw how sweet! I loved reading this!! It's always interesting to learn neat little things in other people's relationships, especially about how they started going out or how they work together on a day-to-day basis.

  4. You guys are so cute! Your relationship went just as fast as ours did :)

  5. This is so cute! I love hearing more about Race- I feel like I came in reading your blog right when you got pregnant, so I feel like I don't know Race at all! ;)

  6. I love this! Aww you are so little! 5"1! cutie! I love the stubborn part haha! So our same situation! and I LOVE that picture of you two! Your outfit and hair are perfect!

  7. These are fun! I might copy it :)

  8. I loved reading this!!! And, not to sound like everyone else, but...5'1"! Cute! So many of your answers sounded like how I would have answered :)

  9. Emma!! My husband's dad is the SAME way with paying at restaurants. I cracked up when I saw that. My husband is still learning the art, but I love it. :)
