Hubby Lists....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nope, it's not that 'famous Christmas Lists'...it's actually a tag!! Tada!!! Anyway, I got tagged by 3 lovely ladies so I felt that I probably should do the tag already, eh? Thanks to Joyce of PinayMamas' Diary, Beth of All about Elizabeth and Cecile of ...Life is Good and Beautiful for passing on this tag to me.

As per the title of the tag...it's all about the Husband...and our story, I reckon? LOL...

Here are "The Rules"

1. Pick your sweetest picture when you were still friends and post it on top of the questions and answers.
2. Another pic now that you are together post it after the questions.
3. Share to how many friends you like.
4. Enjoy doing it c:
5. Let your hubby read it too!

========================

We don't have a picture as friends 'per se' since we met the old fashion way...online...ha! But we have some pics when we first met. This was taken in Tagaytay...on the 3rd day he was here and the day we were flying to the US. Yep, we met in person and have been together eversince....no sense in spending time apart, right? Sorry, the picture is a bit dark...I had to scan it since this was before the digi cam craze...

And now for the questions:


--> Can you remember the day you first met your hubby?

We met twice...online and in person....and I remember both times very clearly! [Long story of how we met here...]

--> When was that? (doesn’t have to be specific)

Online...I sent him a message on April 21, 2001, he replied soon after. In person, we met for the first time on June 11, 2001 when I picked him up at NAIA at about 4 AM. Not very specific, eh?

--> First impression

I obviously thought he was good looking...enough for me to send him a message. When we finally spoke on the phone, I thought he was very gentle. In person, he looked just the way he said he would...shy! Very sweet...

--> Were you attracted to him?

Physically, obviously! I sent him a message, didn't I? But I wasn't expecting the relationship to go as far as it did. I was just curious...and now I'm married...with a 6-year old to boot...

--> Were you friends before he became your bf?

Friends? Not sure if you would call it a friendship...but there's something...not quite sure what to call it. We 'connected' let's put it that way.

--> What was the sweetest thing he did for you?

He married me? Hahaha...how about traveling to the Philippines, his first time ever out of the US, to meet me and the family. His family was against his travel plans because news of foreigners being abducted were rampant at that time. He did anyway.

--> What are the things about him that you are thankful for?

He is very hardworking...responsible...faithful....ambitious [and he does something about it, too]...and a nut case [in a good way]. I can't imagine being married to someone who cannot make me laugh. That would be one boring life, eh?

Here are a couple more pictures...
