the newlywed game

after just four months of marriage, jeff and i feel like we know everything about each other. 
absolutely everything.

that's crazy, right? 

i'm convinced we don't. there's got to be little things we don't know about each other. little things we can still talk about over dinner besides evie and work and our favorite tv shows and the food.

to prove we still have a lot to learn, i thought it'd be fun to ask jeff some silly questions, put him to the test. i wanted to see how much he really knows about me.

his answers are in blue, and mine are in pink.

what is meghan's favorite animal?
j: a dog?
m: i love monkeys and giraffes equally. they're both so weird.

what is meghan's occupation? explain as much as you can.
j: she's a copywriter. she writes product descriptions for an online store.
m: creative copywriter at a large retail company.

if meghan could retire anywhere, where would she choose?
j: somewhere sunny and warm. hawaii, even though she's never been.
m: a warm beach where i could watch the sun set over the water every day.

what is meghan's favorite pro sports team?
j: none? maayyyybe the blazers. or 49ers? better put the oregon ducks on here too (and yes, i know they're not pro).
m: pro sports? pro sports. hm. the trail blazers is the only team that comes to mind. final answer.

what is something on meghan's bucket list?
j: go to hawaii. go on a big family trip before we have to pay full fare for evie's plane ticket.
m: travel europe with my family (preferably before someone turns two so we don't have to buy her an airline ticket).

what is meghan's favorite candy or sweet?
j: peanut butter m&m's.
m: peanut butter m&m's, duh.

what's something meghan would love to have in her dream home?
j: a living room that's separate from the room with the tv.
m: gosh, there are so many things. a wood-burning fireplace in the bedroom is number one, but i'd also be happy with an enormous kitchen that has a breakfast nook. (hey, it's a dream home.)

if meghan could watch only one movie over and over for a week, what would it be?
j: father of the bride or father of the bride part II.
m: house bunny. it never gets old.

who chose the wedding colors? what were they?
j: she did, but she made sure i was okay with them. meghan will probably give a long description of the color. i'll just call it yellow.
m: i made most of the wedding decisions, but i ran everything past jeff to make sure he didn't completely hate anything. so, i chose the colorsmustard yellow and grey with splashes of plumand jeff happily approved them.

if meghan could teach a monkey one trick, what would she have it do?
j: change the litter box.
m: easy! i'd teach it to clean the kitty litter box. (holy moly, that thing is gross.)

he did pretty well, eh? 

leave a little note!

  1. Haha, this is cute! I agree about the litter box! Yuck!

  2. I've been married 9 years and we are still learning stuff about each other so don't rush it you've got plenty of time haha!

    I love the wedding color description!

  3. Peanut Butter M&M's are amazing! And house bunny is so funny!

  4. Being a newlywed is so much fun! I enjoy the part of learning something new about my hubby every day! I feel like there is always a new surprise! And Europe would be so much fun! I have always wanted to go!

  5. He did so well!! Thank you so much for linking up with us! =D

  6. oh this is the sweetest!! I think that this is a great idea.

  7. Haha. I love to read these. It's awesome to see the similarities and differences in the answers the couples have. :-)

  8. Have you ever watched the TV Show the Newyly Wed Game? We were in Vegas last month and it was on in the morning so we watched it..then on the ride home I googled some newlywed questions and it kept us entertained for hours! And is it bad that I can barely wait to get pregnant so that I don't have to change the litter box for 9-10 months?!? 1 cat was bad but now we have 2 and it is disgusting!!!

  9. he did do pretty good! a guy has to know what his girl's favorite candy is in my opinion and then also the chore you despise the least so they do it for us :-)

  10. that is impressive! such a fun game. it's amazing what we do and don't know about our spouse's!

  11. You guys are too cute! He knows you well.
    I have to agree that peanut butter m&ms are pretty much the best thing ever...

    P.S- You asked about the pics I posted from Carnaval. Glad you like them! I have to admit that Ryan took most of the photos and I edited and collaged them. Someday I'll learn to use our new camera :)

  12. mmm the beach sounds awesome right now...and yes to hawaii! That's on our bucket list too!
    peanut butter m&ms are great too with a fireplace in the bedroom...together that'd be amazing! haha

    Glad yall linked up!

  13. Wow! He did really well. And I would totally train a monkey to change the litter box too :)

    Xoxo Jamie

  14. you guys are too cute! :D and your wedding pictures are so beautiful!

  15. I love your answers! peanut butter M&Ms - YUM! Used to eat them all the time when I lived in the USA. we don't get them in South Africa :(
