the newlywed game
after just four months of marriage, jeff and i feel like we know everything about each other.
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 colors—mustard yellow and grey with splashes of plum—and 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?
