The Newlywed Game

Today I'm linking up with Megan from  Mackey Madness for The Newlywed Game! Go check out her super cute blog and link-up for yourself.

Here's the 5 questions to ask/answer:

1) What do you think my best quality is?
2) What would be your ideal date with me?
3) What was your first impression of me? 
4) What is your favorite memory of us?
5) What do you see for us in the future?


Joshua's Answers
1. Meagan's best quality is that she's a fun/goofy person to spend time with. 
2. My ideal date with her would be dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, then cuddling on the couch watching one of our favorite movies on Netflix while eating dessert. 
3. "Wow. She's really cute." 
4. Our "glitzy glammy wedding day." Specifically the evening afterward. We stayed at The Drake and ate awesome seafood at Cape Cod before turning in for the night. ;)
5. Being married 'til we die, having a kid, traveling the world. 


Meagan's Answers
1. Josh's best quality is his extreme patience. No matter how much I nag, bitch, whine, cry, or talk he's always willing to listen or give me my space and time. 
2. My ideal date with Josh would be a day full of roller-coaster riding, delicious food (Carlyle, Wang's Garden, Yard House, etc.), laughing, and hand holding.
3. At first glance, I thought he was nerdy looking, but with good style. Then I heard him speak and thought he was a silly smart-ass. And when I heard he was in the military...well...case closed.
4. My all-time favorite? This, this, and this.
5. Our life together looks like this (in my mind): 

    - In 2 months, we'll move back to Illinois and in 5 months, we'll move to Champaign where Josh will complete 4 years of undergrad for Secondary Education with a concentration in History. 
    - The summer after he graduates, we'll take a month long tour of Europe, he'll hopefully find a full-time teaching job in northeastern Illinois, and we'll start trying to conceive. 
    - Five years from now, we'll (hopefully) have added a child to our family and live in the suburbs of Chicago near our families. We'll enjoy our lives here and travel the world as a family of three. 
    - We'll watch our child learn, grow, graduate, marry, and have children of their own while enjoying each others' company. 
    - We'll retire part-time in Europe and part-time stateside, so we can stay close to our family, but enjoy the benefits of world travel. 
    - I will die at the comfy age of 75 and Joshua will remember me fondly when telling stories of us to our grandchildren until it's time for him to leave this earth. 


Dreamy? Maybe. But it's my dream life for us, right? ;) Anything's possible.


These questions were so fun! I hope Megan and Jess have another Newlywed link-up soon with more questions for us to get to know each other better. :)

Meagan, you are hilarious. I love your life story of the future. It's so detailed. I really hope that all works out for you as planned, lol! I don't know if you can control when you die though. You might have to be a bit more flexible on that one!

Oh my gosh! I can't believe I haven't read your love story yet! I'm on that now.

Josh sounds like Kyle. His perfect date sounds like what Kyle would say, and you description of him in your answer to question 1 also sounds like Kyle...

I'm going to do this newlywed game too.. :)
