Everything you ever wanted to know about the Babbling Couple

What are your middle names? My middle name is actually Abigail, obviously Abby is derived from that. B's middle name is Michael.

How long have you been together? Married for almost three, and we've known each other since 1998. Ay, ay, ay.

How long did you know each other before you started dating? Um, not long. Four months maybe?

Who asked who out? B totally asked me out on my 16th birthday. Not a day sooner. Since I couldn't officially "date" until this magical age, he orchestrated this whole ordeal (involving lots of my high school girlfriends) when December 23rd rolled around. It involved presenting me with the N*SYNC CD, instructing me to listen to God Must've Spent a Little More Time on You. B's ears are probably burning right now. He he he. Ah, young love…

How old were each of you when you met? I was an awkward 15-year-old high school sophomore, he was the older (16!) varsity soccer player. Wooed me right out of my socks. Sigh.

How old are each of you now? I'm 26 and he's 27.

How tall are each of you? I am 5'9" and B is right at 6'0".

Whose siblings do you see the most? We see my middle sister, Chelsea, and her family most often because she's the only one in town. My other sister is doing an internship in FL and B's brothers are both in school out of town.

Do you have any children together? Content with one for now – our sweet precious, Baby B.

What about pets? Leland. She's a piece.

Did you go to the same school? We attended high school together.

Are you from the same hometown? Yes.

Who is the smartest? We're smart in different ways. B's a solver and has the determination to figure things out. He's also far more street smart than I am. I'm book-smart, I'd guess you'd say.

Who is the most sensitive? ME, hands down.

Where do you eat out most as a couple? We love the Bonefish Grill. The martinis there are TOO DIE FOR. Mmmmmm.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? The Bahamas

Who does the cooking? That would be me. But I couldn't light the grill if my life depended on it, so B takes over that duty in the warm months.

Who is more social? Me. I could make friends with a brick wall. B's more reserved, and more guarded than I am. That's not to say he's not friendly, he just has to get to know you before he wants to be your friend.

Who is the neat-freak? Please see picture two posts down. NEITHER OF US! I don't know what the deal is. I'm neat and orderly on paper, but totally not in my home. It's a major flaw.

Who hogs the bed? We're not really bed hoggers. I stay on my side, and he stays on his. We meet in the middle occasionally, but that's probably because the bed slopes to the center. We both have a tendency to steal sheets though.

Who wakes up earlier? Me. I shower and then I wake B up to do so. Actually, I call him on his cell phone to wake him up because I don't want to track back upstairs and risk waking Baby B as I pass through his room to ours.

Who has the bigger family? Um, I think I win by one nephew. My sister just had a baby, which sets the K side one up on the M side. B and I are each the oldest of three – him all boys, me all girls.

How do you spend the holidays? We rotate. If we spend Thanksgiving with one family, the other side gets us for Christmas. Our parents are within miles of us, so it hasn't posed a problem.

Do you have little pet names for each other? Um, I call him B in real life. He calls me Abigail on occasion. No smoochie or poopsie or anything.

How long did it take to get serious? Not very long. Young love is naïve like that though.

Who eats more? ME! Omigosh, I eat like a teenage boy. It's out of control.

Who sings better? I think I do??? B's not much of a singer.

Who's older? Didn't I answer this question above? B is older.

Who does the dishes? Depends on who's feeling less lazy.

Who snores? He does and it drives me bananas. If I'm sleeping and he wakes me up, I usually hit love tap him until he quits. Or I just say – very loudly – QUIT SNORING.

Who's better with the computer? It's a toss up. B works on computer programs every day at work. But I'm more savvy at blogging and Word documents and such.

Who drives when you are together? B.

Who is the first to admit when they're wrong? What, me be wrong?! Well, I never… B is pretty good at admitting when he's wrong, and I eventually come around.

Who kissed who first? It was a terribly awkward first kiss and I hate to even think about it!!!! It makes my skin crawl!!! We were 16.

Who eats more sweets? B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Omigosh, he has a crazy wild animal of a sweet tooth. He could eat lemonheads, sweettarts, and lollypops for every meal. And don't let him tell you otherwise!
