I may have taken on a few of DH’s more commonly-used phrases I guess?  Mostly though I have changed how I do things ‘for’ him rather than just picking them up by accident. 

For instance, I hate it when he leaves the dishtowels on the counter rather than hanging them back up.  So I’ve asked him to hang them.  He hates it when I leave the bathmat on the floor after a shower, so he’s asked me to pick it up right away which I now do. 

You know, just stuff to make living together easier for one another.  (We just moved in together after the wedding).

I used to live alone (for about 2 years) and I had an odd habit of hanging bras everywhere… on the bedroom doorknob, in the laundry room, in the bathroom, on the closet doorknob, etc.  He moved into my apartment about 6 months before we bought a house & every 5 minutes he was finding bras all over the place.  Since we moved into our house I have made more of an effort to keep the unmentionables in the bedroom.

Definitely picked up his phrases and gestures (he’s done the same with mine). We often share a glass at dinnertime when we’re home (this is totally medieval, but cuts down on dishes, LOL). Growing up, when there were leftovers, we would keep them in the dish and put plastic wrap over it — Fiance always puts stuff in Tupperware. Finally, his neatly organized computer file structure inspired me to clean up my own Documents drive. These are just a couple of examples. 😉

I used to love ice… chewed it all of the time…Fiance hates ice and never puts it in his drinks at dinner… now that I live with Fiance I have gotten used to not doing it and I ask for no ice at restaurants….

Fiance hates that I leave the towels on the bed after I shower… and sometimes ( all the time) leave the creamer out after making coffee… I really do forget to put those things up!

Fiance leaves his drawers open at first it was agggravating but I have come to love it and it makes me smile when he does it 

I like to hang everything up in the closet while he likes to fold everything … I spent hours one day fixing our closet and I came home and he fixed it back… lets just say I was not very happy at dinner that night…
