Have you picked up any good or bad habits from your SO?
Bad Habit: Eating dinner on the couch. Trying to break this but I have wedding stuff spread out on our dining table so we couldn’t eat at the table tonight.
Good Habit: I think I’m an all-around nicer person.

Bad habit – being late. I go crazy when I am late but he is late alot which makes me run late.
Good habit – trying to not think about work so much when I am. I would constantly do it before and he has made me realize I shouldnt think about work when I am not at work.

- Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country
Bad Habit: Leaving at the last minute for appointments. I am very obsessed with being early to engagements. Mr. Peng sits around and reads ESPN or whatever until it’s the last minute to go. I’ve slacked on being on time to things because I’m used to him doing it.
Good Habit: Talking with my 12 inch voice (I AM A VERY LOUD TALKER!!!! Only after years of polite shushing from Mr. Peng, have I learned how to control my voice… almost all the time. Allllmost.)

Good Habit: A good commitment to healthy eating/working out. My husband has diabetes, so he’s always aware of what he’s eating/exercizing. We do that stuff together, so it makes things a lot easier to stick to.
Bad Habit: When my husband does laundry, he leaves it in the dryer for days at a time. He’ll spin the clothes, take an item out and leave the rest in, instead of folding it and putting it away. I used to hate this and…yeah, I did it last week. Oops.

Bad Habit: Definately lateness. I have to to tell FI that we’re scheduled to be somewhere a half hour earlier than we actually need to be there. Then, we’re only 10 minutes late. But now, I’m catching the late bug.
Good Habit: Controlling my temper. He is horrible when he actually gets to the “blowup” stage, but he’s really really good at keeping it under control most of the time. He makes me want to be calmer

@Jessie516-leaving laundry in the dryer-that’s my bad habit that thank goodness he hasn’t picked up yet. I’m getting better about it though!

Bad Habits – Eating junk food, Mr. F is a big fan of microwave friendly dinners. I fell victim to his convienent cooking routine a year ago and gained 10 lbs! Now we only buy real food.
Good Habits – Although I’m a HUGE worry wart, I don’t stress nearly as much since we met. Sometime you gotta just let things go.

Good habit: Giving myself permission to have what I want when I want it every now and again.

Bad Habits — eating on the couch (same here tessa!) it drives me nuts. What drives me even crazier is when I find grease, peanut butter or something else where HE sits. So much for new furniture!
Good Habits — I think about things before I actually say them. He has also helped me with my patience (though I still have work to do there)
My bad habit on him: needing to have something sweet/dessert after every meal!
