"k" is for...

I met Kell one fateful night after a MSU football game. I'd had a less-than-desirable date, and I must have looked particularly cute that night because a hunky guy from The Delta swept me off my feet. At the time, I had no idea that he would be the man I would marry. After a few dates with other people and a few college parties, we became an item, and six years later, we tied the knot. We've learned a lot about each other and ourselves since we've been together, and I'm sure he would have some words to share on the subject, too.

And here's a little Q&A that I borrowed from Jenny to describe Kell:

1. Who is your man? Kell
2. How long have you been together? January 2000. Kell would know the exact date, but I can't remember. I'm terrible at numbers and math.
3. How long did you date? 6 years, baby.
4. How old is your man? 27. Our birthdays are 2 days apart, so we pretty much celebrate for 3 straight days.
5. Who eats more? Kell
6. Who said "I love you" first? Kell
7. Who is taller? Kell by about a foot
8. Who sings better? I sing GREAT in the shower and in the car. Kell doesn't sing except at church, and I can't hear him because it's so quiet. I always try to get him to sing the guy's part of "Don't Go Breakin' My Heart" whenever it comes on the radio, but he's SO not into it.
9. Who is smarter? We have different smarts - Kell's very logical and is brilliant with college sports stats. You can clearly see his love for football by the glee in the photo above.
10. Whose temper is worse? Mine, I'm afraid. However, I am usually able to express myself verbally, and Kell gets his frustrations out by breaking tennis racquets or throwing golf clubs into lakes.
11. Who does the laundry? Both. I'm usually the only one that folds, and I am the better folder. But I HATE to put away.
12. Who takes out the garbage? Kell. And he is bad to not replace the garbage bag.
13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do, usually with Charlie. Kell and Olive sleep on the other side.
14. Who pays the bills? Kell physically writes the checks, but we both actually bring home the bacon.
15. Who is better with the computer? I think I am.
16. Who mows the lawn? no lawn to mow - one of the small beauties of an apartment.
17. Who cooks dinner? I do, but Kell is a mean griller.
18. Who drives when you are together? Kell - he cannot STAND to not be in control. He claims that's why he doesn't like to fly.
19. Who pays when you go out? I do usually.
20. Who is most stubborn? He may say otherwise, but we can both be pretty bull-headed.
21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Kell, but I don't think he means it. He just wants the fight to be over.
22. Whose parents do you see the most? Both pretty equal, I think. Except football season when we're at my parents' house nearly every weekend.
23. Who kissed who first? That is up for discussion.
24. Who asked who out? Well, "asked" is not really applicable in this situation. Kell told me we were going to Homecoming together our freshman year.
25. Who proposed? Kell
26. Who is more sensitive? Me in the worst way.
27. Who has more friends? I would say we're both pretty friendly.
28. Who has more siblings? neither - we each have one. My sister Harris and his brother Peyton are the same age.

Hooray for Kell!
