Whoops, If you can't find my finish line picture on the website I mentioned in The Marathon post, sorry. Here are the correct instructions to find the picture. Go to, click on Top of Utah Runners Click Here, click on View and Order Pictures, and then put in my bib number 2288.

Okay, so I finally wanted to fill out this questionnaire thing from Sara. Here it goes:

How long have you been together? We will be married for 7 years on December 22, 2008.
How did you meet?We met in a Singles Ward and we also attended the same college (Salt Lake Community College).
How long did you date? We dated for 7 months and then we were engaged for 2.5 months.
How old is he? Zac will be 30 in January. It doesn't seem to bother him at all, which I greatly admire.
Who said I love you first? Zac told me he loved me first. It is kind of a funny story, yet fitting for us. We were sitting on Zac's bed at his parents house just talking (and I really mean we were just talking because his house was full of people). He was fiddling with his TI85 calculator. After a couple of minutes, he handed me the calculator. When I looked at the screen, on it was the words, "I love you." So, maybe I was the first one to actually say I love you (I told him that I loved him, too) since he just typed the words in on his calculator. We are such geeks.
Who is taller?Zac is taller by 3 or so inches.
Who sings better? I would say that we both are just mediocre singers who could maybe add something to a ward choir if we ever went to practice.
Who is smarter? Zac is definitely more book and street smart.
Whose temper is worse? We both have tempers, but I can control mine a little better than Zac, although his temper only usually shows when Jack is pulling one of his grand tantrums.
Who does the laundry? I do most of the laundry. Zac is getting better at helping me though. I told him he could watch football on Saturday if he folded laundry while watching. It's a win-win situation.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?It actually changes for us. I usually sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door of the room. It is weird, but that is how we like it.
Who pays the bills? We work together to pay the bills and do our finances.
Who mows the lawn? I have mowed the lawn this summer. I actually like it. I would mow the lawn while Zac worked on the shed he was building in our back yard.
Who does the dishes?I usually do the dishes.
Who cooks dinner? I usually try to cook dinner. I am not the best of cooks, but we definitely aren't starving.
Who drives when you are together? Zac is the driver. He is better at it.
Who is more stubborn? We are both very stubborn, and we wonder why Jack and Piper are so stubborn, too.
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?I guess that we both are able to apologize for the bad decisions that we make. It is actually quite nice that we both can say sorry.
Who kissed who first?I kissed Zac first. He asked me if he could have a kiss, and I gave him one.
Who proposed? We talked about it first and decided that we should get married. Then Zac asked me officially while we were on the doorstep of my mother's house. I said yes, obviously.
Who is more sensitive? I am definitely very sensitive.
Who has more friends? We are both quite shy. But, I would have to say that I have a few more friends than Zac. Being a mom, you want as big of a support group as you can get (especially when you don't live very close to family).
Who wears the pants in the family? Sometimes he does and sometimes I do. It depends on the topic at hand and who is more tired.
How many kids do you want to have? That depends on who you ask. I would like to have 5, but we'll see if we get past 2.
