Married Life

Just Jon and Jen

After reading this on two different blogs I knew I had to join in on the fun! I hope that you enjoy read this so much that you do it yourself.
Idea taken from Let Them Eat Lettuce and Little Mrs. Married

We are in Longview.

18. Do you work or stay home?
I work 40 hours a week, Monday-Friday.

19. Where did you go on your honeymoon?
There was a lot of debate that went into our honeymoon, because I wanted to go somewhere warm and Jon did not. So, because he was more than willing to plan the honeymoon he got to choose the location. We went to Leavenworth, Washington. It was just perfect! Jon really did a great job when he chose this location.

20. What was the funniest gift you gave while dating?
The funniest gift I gave was probably a Starburst Cake. Jon loves starburst candy and I decorated the top of the cake with his favorite candy.

I knew of Jon about 9 months before we started dating. We really did not get to know each other until about 3 months before we started dating.

23. Who asked who out?
He didn’t exactly ask! We were shopping at Barnes & Noble, just hanging out and he kissed me on the cheek. On the way we had our DTR to define our relationship. It was so sweet.

I am 26 and Jon is 24.

25. Where do each of you go to school?
Neither of us go to school anymore, because we have graduated.

26. Which situation is hardest on you as a couple?
Probably my parent’s divorce, it took quite a toll on me. Other than that, just learning how to take two different people, from different backgrounds and make us one family. That has been challenging.

Nope. Different high schools. And for college, he went to my school for a year, before he transferred out.

That was very fun to read. I love the last picture.

Dos Jon have a ponytail?

Living a Changed Life said...

MrsMarkDave - :) He did have a ponytail when I met him. But not anymore. :)

Marlene said...

Loved reading this! :-) What a sweet story.

Jen said...

Hi Jen, You have just linked to follow me on BlogFrog so I came to drop by your blog. Loved the post and all the pictures. I just have to tell you that I thought "What a small world" when I saw Longview. I am assuming that is Texas. Well, I spent my high school years in Carthage which is just down the road a'ways. I was born in England, grew up in Texas and Louisiana and now live in Australia. I have been here for 35 years so you can guess that I am much older than you. I guess you would be the age of some of my children.

May I just congratulate you on your weight loss and the fact that you were able to change your life. Well done, you look great.

Nice to drop by here to your place. I hope to call again.

Marlene - Thanks!

Jen - It is a small world. Thank you for your encouragement. It is great to have you stop by my blog! I can't wait for you to visit again.

Losing Brownies said...

This is such a sweet survery!

mrsmarkdave said...

I'm the opposite. My husband DIDN'T have a ponytail when we met, but he does now. I hate it, but he loves it. So, I just deal with it and accept it as "him" :-)

Living a Changed Life said...

Losing Brownies - That's why I just couldn't resist doing it myself.

MrsMarkDave - Yeah, boys like to do their own thing sometimes. That good that you accept him as he is.

Chelle said...

Oh my goodness, I haven't seen that last picture in a long time! That was when we went to the Heathman and Jon was supposed to be Amanda's "date", or something and he spent the whole night with you. =) Haha! So good to think back and remember. I am so glad we have been in each other's lives so much that we have so memories together! I love you!

Living a Changed Life said...

Chelle - I know! That was even before we were dating. I love you too!!
