About Us

I found this cute questionnaire on another blog & thought it would be something fun to do! I hope you enjoy!

{1} What are your middle names?
Me: Megan ,by birth. But now, legally, it's my maiden name, Gilbert.
Kyle: Kyle...yep, he goes by his middle name!
{2} How long have you been together?
Since November 2004
{3} How long did you know each other before you started dating?
We pretty much started dating immediately.
{4} Who asked who out?
Well, I put my phone number in his phone the night I met him & he texted me the next day {& he swears up and down that that was his first text. That's just hard for me to believe since I'm a texting queen. haha}
{5} How old are each of you?

We're both 25....19 days apart.
{6} Did you go to the same school?
Nope, never have.
{7} Are you from the same home town?
Nope. I was born in Texas, raised in Delaware.
He was born in Spartanburg & grew up in Green Creek, NC & Inman, SC.
{8} Who is the smartest?
Depends what topic we're discussing. I must say, we're both pretty darn smart haha
{9} Who majored in what?
Me: BS in Nursing, MS in Nursing - Peds Primary Care NP
Kyle: BS in Engineering
{10} Who is the most sensitive?
I am, hands down. Kyle is very stoic. He has always been that way & I love him for that. I think having a baby has changed him a lot, but still he is not openly sensitive about things. Me, on the other hand? I show my emotions pretty openly. If I am sad, I cry. If I'm happy, I smile big & laugh. I cry when I read blogs of people I don't know. I cried when Kinsley Anne had to go to NICU. I cried when I had to leave Kinsley Anne at the hospital by herself. I cried 2 nights ago, "just because." I think all nurses have to be in touch with their emotions.
{11} Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Aruba, on our honeymoon.
{12} Who has the worst temper?
Hmm..that's a tough question. I wouldn't honestly say either of us have a bad temper, but I would say if he's mad, you're likely to know it faster than with me. Anger is the one thing I am not super quick to show. I usually simmer slowly.
{13} How many children do you want?
We are between 2 & 3. Although I'm not sure I can handle the emotions of another baby going to NICU. I hope & pray that with the next pregnancy, things will not be so "exciting." That would make my decision a little harder. Otherwise, definitely 2.
{14} Who does the cooking?
Usually me since I get home earlier (and am home with the baby right now) but he cooks sometimes, too.
{15} Who is more social?
Probably him, actually. I mean, I'm social, don't get me wrong. But he could talk to a complete stranger for hours. He's on lots of committees in the community & is great at this. He is totally one of those people could be a public figure or run for mayor & do great. Not me.
{16} Who is the neat freak?
Neither one of us. That presents a problem at times.
{17} Who is the most stubborn?
We both are equally as stubborn, just typically about different things. If I had to pick someone, I would say him but I think that comes from being the oldest sibling. :)
{18} Who wakes up earlier?
He does. He has to be at work 30+ minutes before me. And currently, with me being at home with Kinsley Anne, he definitely gets up earlier.
{19} Where was your first date?
HA! Waffle House. How romantic, right?
{20} Who has the bigger family?
He has a bigger immediate family. But, I would say we are pretty similar when it comes to extended families. Mine would probably just seem bigger if you got us all in a room because you can't keep us quiet when we get together!!!
{21} Do you get flowers often?
Not really. Neither one of us are really a lover of flowers as a gift. I mean, I love flowers, don't get me wrong. But they die so quickly!!!
{22} How do you spend the holidays?
When we got married, we decided to split the holidays each year, rotating where we spent them since our families don't live in the same place. The 1st year, we did Thanksgiving in DE, Christmas in SC. Last year, Kyle was in China for Thanksgiving so I went to DE to be with my family & then we also spent Christmas in DE. This year, we will spend both in SC because of Kinsley Anne being so young.
{23} Who is more jealous?
probably me..of his time more than anything. He is really busy, which is a good thing, but we have to schedule time to just stay home.
{24} How long did it take to get serious?
We were serious right away. We began getting to know each other by talking on the phone hours at a time & also asking each other questions....no question was out off-limits. We said "I love you" in February after we met.
{25} Who eats more?
He does. But, that's to be expected, right? Except candy. I can eat my weight in candy, haha
{26} What do you do for a living?
Me: mama, wife, & pediatric neurology nurse practitioner
Kyle: daddy, husband, & structural engineer at a very large, international corporation
{27} Who does the laundry?

Before baby, we shared the duty. Now, I do most of it since I'm home. But that will probably change back to more of a shared duty once I'm back at work.
{28} Who's better with the computer?
We are both really good with computers, although he uses more programs than I do since he does engineering stuff on it. I was sooo grateful when our charting at work went electronic. I can type far faster than I can write.
{29} Who drives when you are together?
Typically him. I hate driving.
{30} What is your song?
Our wedding song was "God Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts
