brandi and arthur

Talk about a hot couple, huh? Brandi and Arthur have been together for quite some time and they're getting married in June. We had so much fun cruising around in the sunshine and it was such a beautiful day! My partner in crime, Lindi, came and helped a ton, so that made the day even better!


Upward Soccer, Take Two.

It was another fun day at the fields! I can't get enough of these little boogers. They always remind me to enjoy life in the most simple of ways. Hope they do the same to you :)

yes... she really is doing some kind of gymnastics on the soccer field.



so, i've always read peoples' fun tag games on the ol blog - i guess it's my turn now! Jen and Nick Miersma tagged me, a lovely couple in kentucky, and at first i thought... ehhhh, i don't feel like answering lots of questions. but when i saw it would be about my lover, i thought "aw yia, it's business time."

1. Who is your man? Jordan Shaw Strebeck. Grillmaster deluxe, sports writer, statistic spitter outer, movie quoter, Jesus lover, comedian, math whiz, politician, salesman, musician.... my goodness... multi-talented, i tell ya!

2. How long have you been together? We started dating March 28, 2006. We played a concert together on campus and he played this beautiful "secret song" for a girl he loved. I didn't swoon or anything... but lets just say it was an easy in for a DTR (define the relationship... :)

3. How long did you date? We dated for 9 months and he proposed in December.

4. How old is your man? 22. I robbed the cradle, yes i did.

5. Who eats more? I think he probably does on a regular basis, but if we were having an eating contest I would totally win.

6. Who said "I love you" first? Jordan.

7. Who is taller? He is! Yay! He's 6'2'' and I'm 6'... It's always nice to feel like a lady.

8. Who sings better? I love his voice. But I must say, I like our voices singing together the best. Harmony is a beautiful thing - especially when it's with the person you love.

9. Who is smarter? Hands down, Jordan. He spanked the ACT and could have gone to any IVY League school he wanted to... Good thing he came to Tech!

10. Whose temper is worse? Ehh... probably his. It doesn't come out often though.

11. Who does the laundry? I do, and I really like it. It smells so stinkin good. I can't wait for the winter so I can wrap up in clean towels fresh out of the dryer... mmmm.

12. Who takes out the garbage? Jordan does. What a man.

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? He does. But on mornings when I open at Starbucks, he always rolls over and cuddles with my pillow. It makes it that harder to leave for work, but it's pretty dang cute.

14. Who pays the bills? Right now it's a joint effort... Someday I'll become official bill payer when we get it all figured out!

15. Who is better with the computer? Probably about the same. He's better at Excel, I'm better at Photoshop... how about that?

16. Who mows the lawn? He does most of the time, but I like to chip in every now and then. Mowing is fun.

17. Who cooks dinner? I'm learning... let's leave it at that. And also, Jordan can cook anything on the grill. Steaks, salmon, doorknobs...

18. Who drives when you are together? He does. He's the best driver I know - I'm not even kidding.

19. Who pays when you go out? We usually go out soon after I get my tips... so I guess me?

20. Who is most stubborn? That's a close one... I didn't even know I was a stubborn person until I got married :) But yeah, we're both pretty hard-headed.

21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Jordan, most of the time. I mean, I will eventually, but Jordan is so amazing at ridding himself of pride and just being Christlike. So forgiving, so patient...

22. Whose parents do you see the most? His. They live in Clovis, so we get to see them quite a bit! I love it because they're wonderful. We've seen mine once since the wedding... stinkin Oklahoma.

23. Who kissed who first? He layed one on me first. We were driving through Oklahoma to Lubbock after his long summer in Minnesota and we were taking a stroll on the golf course at night. We layed down on a golf green and were just talking and looking at the stars and BAM! (ps. it was 5 months after we were dating... i guess he wanted to know i was really the one) what a guy, huh?

24. Who asked who out? He did.

25. Who proposed? He definitely did. Scavenger hunt, party, the whole enchilada.

26. Who is more sensitive? Yikes.... DEFINITELY me!

27. Who has more friends? Its nice that a lot of our friends are the same, but I must say he knows way more people than i do.

28. Who has more siblings? He has 3 brothers. I've got one sister. Man i love family.

29. Who wears the pants in the family? Jordan. Sometimes I try to put his on and try to hold them up with a belt, but they never fit... :)

hmm so who shall i tag now? cristy, sarah, kristin, amberly... have fun!
