Oklahoma is OK

We finally got the chance to visit our beloved Cronks in Enid, Oklahoma. It was my first time visiting OK and the first time in over a year that we have seen Eric, Hillarie, Olivia, and Frances. Rune fell in love with Frances (don't worry, Lily, they're cousins) and had so much fun. There was a Breakfast with Santa and to my GREAT surprise, Rune walked right up to Santa and gave him a hug. He even talked to Santa.

Franny, on the other hand, responded a little more the way I expected Rune to.


The last day we were there, an ice storm hit, church was cancelled, and we got to play a bit before heading to the airport.

It was such a great time and it just rekindled our love for our small-town relatives. haha
PS While there, I tried to go running with Ms. Super Runner herself. Running is definitely an acquired taste, but thanks for letting me try, Hill.

Inspiration

I have been waiting to feel inspired. Pete and RePete pictures of us hiking was just not doing it for me. Then this weekend we headed up to the White Mountains to cut a Christmas Tree with Nat & Eda and Girls. (SHOUT OUT TO ANNIE LEWIS- #1 Hostess)

It snowed on us as we tromped around and it was just perfect.

I posted this next picture and it reminded me that Hillarie tagged me with an All-about-Hubby tag. So I better follow through on that one.

What's his name? Broc Allen Hendershott

How long have you been together? 7 years- Our 7 year Anniversary will be May 15th

How long did you date? almost 3 weeks

How old is he? 29

Who eats more? Is the meal chicken salad and bananas? If so, definitely me.

Who said 'I love you' first? I did.

Who is taller? Broc- he is a perfect 6'0

Who sings better? Quality- Broc. Years of mediocre singing in choirs- me.

Who is smarter? Broc is smarter, but I have a bigger vocabulary to talk about things I know nothing about.

Who does the laundry? Me. Speaking of...

Who does the dishes? It used to be that Broc cooked and I did the dishes- a partnership of sorts. Now I just do both and that works too because I actually want to become a better cook, and Broc still hates doing dishes.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Broc.

Who pays the bills? I set up all the AutoPays, so does that count? Otherwise, I am definitely the accountant.

Who mows the lawn? I used to, but then we moved to a house with a sloped yard- which is not as fun to mow.



Who cooks dinner? Mostly me, but Broc is the true talent in the family

Who drives when you are together? Always Broc.

Who is more stubborn? I refuse to answer that. EVER.

Who kissed who first? He did, but it was after I asked why he hadn't yet. And he hadn't yet because I told my friend to tell his friend to tell him that I didn't want to complicate things. HAHAHAHA. It still makes me laugh.

Who asked who out first? He asked me out on our one and only proper date.


Who proposed? He did the official down-on-one-knee proposal, but I proposed the idea of getting to know each other as man and wife, rather than the traditional BF/GF courtship.

Who is more sensitive? Neither of us is particularly sensitive, but only Stalin could be considered less sensitive than Broc (and that is partially because he is no longer living).

Who has more friends? Me, unless we are going by total BMI.

Who has more siblings? 7-4 in my favor

Who wears the pants in the family? I think his family would say me. Okay, so would he. And I would have to as well. By the way, I was almost completely joking about the Stalin comment.

Hillarie, thanks for giving me a chance to brag about my favorite guy and how we came to be.

I tag Vanessa, Leslie, Raquel, Tamara, Katie, and Monica.


PS Thanksgiving was a blast- you can catch all the 411 on my SIL's blog. Sommer was the family photog for that weekend. Thanks, Som.
