A Q&A with my Husband | #CouplesQuiz

My husband and I have been together for quite a while now and will soon celebrate out first wedding anniversary together. But one thing I have never done on the blog is share a fun Q&A type post with you guys – so when BedGuru got in touch asking my Husband & I to join in on their #CoupleQuiz campaign, I knew we had to get involved.

My husband and I have a pretty solid relationship, I’m happy to report. We work together as a team against the hoard of tiny humans we have at home {we’re like the Brady Bunch!} and we really try to not go to bed at night with an angry head. We’re very much air-it-all-out-before-we-go-to-sleep sort of people; which will hopefully result in a good night’s sleep.

However, with my Husband’s snoring & constant duvet thievery, a good night’s sleep isn’t always a sure-fire thing. In fact, lately, there have been countless visits to the sofa for the remainder of the night! We both sleep quite differently e.g. I like two pillows, he has one but folds it over {what’s THAT all about?} he snores & I cannot sleep through it, whereas when I snore he has no issues sleeping through it. Bed Guru have a selection of Couple’s mattresses to accommodate different sleeping requirements, so I think we are going to have to look into those. 

Husband & Wife Q&A

How did you meet?

Me: We met through playing a tabletop game called Dungeons & Dragons – I know, pretty nerdy, right?
Husband: We met by chance.  A friend called me up one night saying a guy had pulled out of an event and did I want to fill his place. 

How long have you known each other?

Me: We have known each other for 8 years and been together for 7yrs.
Husband: Oooo that’s a question I feel if I get wrong I will be sleeping on the sofa for the rest of 2017…. around 7 years? 8 years?

What do you do to keep the love alive?

Me: We make time for date nights each week. Sometimes we fail, because of you know…life! But we really try to set aside that one evening a week to chill out together, enjoy a nice evening meal and have a catch-up.
Husband: Stop and ignore the craziness of the household. Tell her she is beautiful and try to steal as many kisses as possible. Try to do the little things of when least expect it a takeaway when their starving, a lush bubble bar when looking to unwind and relax and trying to make her smile all the time even if it’s at the expense of my street cred by making myself look silly.What are your partner’s pet peeves? His snoring and he can eat loudly.

What are your partner’s pet peeves?

Me: Sean doesn’t annoy easily, if at all. He hates it when people drink from the same glass his juice is in {which I find quite funny} but he really doesn’t like it. 
Husband: Everything. Oxygen, grass, the sky being blue? haha, I would have to say my snoring and my carefree attitude of “Don’t worry about a plan of attack love…. Let’s just wing life!”

What do you love the most about each other? 

Me: His compassion and thoughtfulness. No matter what mood our relationship is on, he will always be there for me, even when he is mad at me.
Husband: Easy her blush. When she blushes and looks at me with rosy red cheeks, a beautiful smile and just the two of us on planet earth.

What is the most memorable gift you have received from your partner?

Me: The necklace he gave to me on our wedding day. It had a photo of my Mum inside, and in his letter, he wrote “Because she cannot physically be with you today, maybe this will help you to get through today without her here. I cried LOTS of tears.
Husband: A daughter – if this one doesn’t count I would say my heart pillow! haha (she isn’t the best at gifts sometimes).

What is your favourite memory as a couple?

Me: Gosh, do I have to choose just one? I have many favourite memories, from our evenings out when we were dating, to find out we were pregnant, to hearing that we were expecting a little girl and even our wedding day. There are too many to choose just one!
Husband: When we found out we were pregnant with Annabelle, it was terrifying experience due to massive health issues that run in my family with little ones but Debi calmed me down, reassured me and was just the fact I knew whatever life threw at me she would have my 6 (back) 

What is the most key component of your relationship?

Me: Honesty, communication & respect for one another. These three key things are so, so important in a relationship. 
Husband: Hmmm… I would say determination. We are determined to spend our lives together, determined our kids have the best life possible, determined to ensure each other are happy.

Where is your dream destination for a couple’s holiday?

Me: In truth? Anywhere would suit us. I honestly think we’d be happy in a caravan in Castlerock, with Netflix, a few cheeky drinks and just ‘us time’. 
Husband: Ooooo. Palma – Sunshine, Beaches, Beautiful waters with activities, food and the ability to get away, refresh and lose ourselves on the other side of the planet.

What are your favourite things to do as a couple?

Me: Grabbing some dinner and a movie….and maybe have a little time after for a little drink in a cute pub somewhere. 
Husband: Eat! We love mixing things up and trying food both eating out and trying to recreate our favourite dishes inside on a budget which usually ends up brilliant or burnt to a crisp. Very rarely an in between!

    Well this was adorable! I am also guilty of the pillow-folding. I HATE plush pillows but I need my head to be raised! Hence the pillow-folding…. it makes sense to me!

    You guys sound like a great team!
