Ten Years & You are Still The One!

This week on the 19th we reached our 10 year mark of marriage. After all these years, lets just say....." you're still the one that make me smile. Still the one that drives me wild. Still the one that make me laugh. Still the one that is my better half.

Still the one that that turns my head. Still the one I want to crawl into bed with. Still the one that makes me strong. Still the one that I want to take along. Still the one that I can't get enough of. Still the one I dream about."
"We're still having fun, and you're still the one!"
We have been TAGGED... About Us... 10 years and counting!
1. His full name: Jayson Claud Haws (Claud is a great grandfather's name that has been pasted down through out the Haws generation).
2. How long have you been together? Over 13 years
3. How long did you date? 3-4 years. We started dating once he graduated from High School. Everyone always asks if we dated during high School, and I always say no, but he dated most of my friends, during high school!!! I wrote him during his 2 year mission. (I like to say I waited for him, but he may have a different story!), and then we dated and broke-up and got married in 98. We were engaged for 2 months and were crazy in love!
4. How old is he? 32, two years older than me. Yes, I know I just turned 30 and can no longer give him crap for being old and in his thirties!
5. Who eats more? Jayson eats more.
6. Who said "I love you" first? Jayson, although I said it quickly after.
7. Who is taller? He is almost 6', I'm 5'4"
8. Who sings better? That would be me, although he doesn't have a bad voice, he is just a little more reserved in that dept.
9. Who is smarter? Jayson is definitely smarter when in comes to book smarts(Hello he is a Dr.,) ME..I would have given up after the first 4 years of college,but nope not him he did 8 plus years of school. I guess he should be smarter than me, if he wasn't we may need to ask for our money back!!!! He can figure out anything. I am smart, but if it requires too much thought process I usually turn it over to him.
10. Who does the laundry? Me, but not very well. It's my least favorite household chore. He does help out ALOT. All the other household jobs I have mastered!
11. Who pays the bills? I use to pay the bills, but now the rolls have switched and he pays the bills,(now that we are actually making money). I am totally fine with him paying the bills, but am also willing to help anytime.
12. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? He does. I sleep on the left, and unfortunately, Gavyn is often found somewhere in between us.
13. Who mows the lawn? He mows the lawn the most, but since I have recently found out that it is basically a vacation.... (no kids and quite random thoughts) I may be fighting him for the job this summer.
14. Who cooks dinner? Me about 99% of the time, but he's a pro at steaks and hamburgers on the grill, and Hamburger Helper-(Let's just say it is not on my favorite list!)
15. Who drives? Jayson ofcourse! There is no way he can sit back and relax if he is not in total control of the vehicle. I am happy to let him drive!
16. Who kissed who first? He definitely kissed me first. I waited 3 months for my first kiss, but I have to say it was definitely worth the wait. It was after a great date to the Chicago Concert in Park City.
17. Who's more stubborn? We are extremely close on this one, but I would have to say Me. I am very very strong willed and will usually stand my guard, or put up a good fight until I get my way.
18. Who asked who out first? My first job was at Taco Time and he and his friends came in one night and he asked me out. I was thrilled, because I had a secret crush on him way before that. Needless to say, I totally loved when he would come and eat at Taco Time and even go through the drive-through. It made my day. All the girls who worked with me would help me keep an eye out for him!
19. Who proposed? He did. He took me to Temple Square to pop the question after a wonderful dinner at the Roof. Let's just say I wondered what he was up to, because he was way nervous, and couldn't eat a thing. Then, we went down by the gates of the temple, all alone..., until a security guy came to and interrupted to go on the temple grounds because they thought someone had entered the temple grounds after hours. I still remember the guy saying... "Sorry to ruin the moment," and right after Jayson proposed. It was wonderful and I'll never forget it. Later that night we drove to the Bountiful Temple and decided that Bountiful would be where we would get married.
20. Who has more friends? Jayson does... he is very outgoing and is always wanting to get together with people. He is very social. I like to keep to myself more, but he is my best friend. I often joke he may have to speak at my funeral, cuz I don't have a lot of friends, (like he does--I am not as popular!) plus no one else knows me like he does.
21. Who is more sensitive? I'm more sensitive. There are a few things that can really get to him though!
22. Who has more siblings? Me. I come from a family of seven kids and he comes from a family of 4 kids.
23. Who wears the pants? Jayson, but there are days I can totally give him a run for his money!

I am TAGGING as Couples... Katie, Erika, Mandy, Ali, Jacque, and Kenna... Have fun Girls!
