1. He’s half Mexican and half German. I hope our future kids get his hair – I think its beautiful!

7. 99% of his clothes come from Brooks Brothers.

8. He taught me how to cook.

9. He’s a huge punk music fan, and I mean real punk, not the pop-punk crap most people mean when they say “punk”.

1. He puts slices of ginger in his ginger ale.

2. He can speak Mandarin.

3. He plays the piano, guitar, saxaphone, violin, and sings.

4. If it weren’t for his dad telling him to have a “real” career, he probably would have gone into music. Now he’s a tech guy. He still plays and records as a serious hobby.

5. He was a missionary during college.

6. I’m pretty sure it’s psychologically impossible for him to watch a movie without making popcorn.

7. His favorite drink is a gin and tonic, though he loves watching Pirates of the Caribbean with a dark and stormy in hand.

8. He is adamantly anti-furbaby. Cats are pretty much the only worthwhile pet in his book because they can take care of themselves. (A point we agree on. πŸ˜‰ )

9. He was captain of the football team and looks like Patrick Swayze. Who’s a happy Minutiae?

10. He is one of the kindlest, gentlest, most open-minded persons I’ve ever known.

1.  Most of the time (I’d say about 90%) he acts like a big child. He loves to have fun and goof off, and since his job is always 100% dead serious, he is anything but when he is off the clock.

2.  He is the half of the relationship that has read the entire Twilight series. I have absolutely no interest in the books whatsoever, but I saw Eclipse with my best friend last night, and when I texted him and asked him jokingly if he had “imprinted” on me, he response was “Lol shut up I’m not a wolf.” I was surprised he even knew what I was talking about haha.

3.  He is a cav scout in the Army and is extremely proud of his job.  He’s going on his first deployment this September to Iraq for 12 months, and he’ll be coming home in 32ish days for his leave.

4.  He has 3 tattoos.  Some tribal thing on the back of his arm, a quote that we got together, and his last name as an ambigram on his left forearm, which I designed.

5.  He is only 3 hours and 28 minutes older than me.  We were born in the exact same hospital too, and our last initials are next to each other alphabetically, so we like to think we met in the nursery. πŸ™‚

6.  He has lived his whole life in the north (minus one year, and the time he has been stationed at Fort Hood), but he is a southern man through and through.  He absolutely loves country music, his cowboy boots, and he wants to live in the south after he gets out. He calls every female “sweetheart” or “hun” (which makes me kind of uncomfortable since no one that I know really does this in the north, but he means nothing by it), and he is the most polite man I have ever met.

7.  He has 7 brothers. Yep, SEVEN. Which pretty much means I’m completely screwed, seeing as how I would like a little girl someday. But I know the boys we do have will be so absolutely adorable, and I hope they are the spitting image of their father. πŸ™‚

8.  He is also the cook in the relationship, and he is definitely amazing at it.  I can’t cook to save my life, so it kind of works in my favor lol.  He has also gotten me to try a ton of foods I wouldn’t normally have tried, like chili and stuffing (I know, I’m weird).

9.  He played football in high school and has also had his fair share of concussions, a broken foot, and a messed up knee.

10.  He is a dog person. He absolutely loves his dogs (they live with his mom), and he can’t wait until he gets back from Iraq so that we can get one of our own.
