    1. Do you like wine? If yes, then what is your favorite?
    Reisling, and I make an awesome raspberry/peach sangria with  Reisling that is to die for

    2. Name something you love about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He is the most honest man. If you are selling  your car for 2000.00 and he wants to buy it but feels it is worth more, he will tll you that  your price is too low and try to pay you what he feels it is worth.  His parents reared a really really really good man.

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He will help anybody with anything - to a crazy crazy fault.  And....he really isn't much of a cook.

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    I don't eat wierd anything.  Well, there was a PB&J with Doritos in it that was pretty good.

    5. What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?
    Saturday and Sunday got to see my Indiana DD and we  had dinner at my oldest DD's on Sunday.  Monday, shamefull I attended no memorials or parades and I am disappointed in myself for that one.

    6. When is your wedding?

  • 1. Do you like wine? If yes, then what is your favorite?
    Love it! My favorite is between a sweet red or white zinfandel

    2. Name something you love about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    I love that he'll do something sweet for me randomly, like start the coffee pot if I look extra tired or he'll randomly bring me breakfast in bed. I seriously feel like I won the man-lottery with him, he makes me feel loved every day.

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He cannot shut up when he's intoxicated, to the point where our friends will nag him because it gets that bad.

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    Until I realized how delicious it was, eggs and avocado mixed together. Now I have it almost every morning, with rooster sauce.

    5. What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?
    My grandfather passed away last friday unexpectedly so I spent the weekend doing my schoolwork (final semester for my bachelor's), since I'll have to go help my mom clean out their house this weekend. It seriously crippled me a little bit to have to take his invitation out of the pile and I am really thankful I've been able to keep myself busy; it helps to not get too sad, he wouldn't want that.

    Boom!  http://www.food.com/recipe/peach-raspberry-sangria-258580

    I recommend soaking your vanilla bean in some wine or schnapps before  you cut it.  When the bean is wet, the good stuff just kind of oozes out and mixes better.  When I use a dry vanilla bean, it looks like flecks of dirt are floating in my sangria.

    1. Do you like wine? If yes, then what is your favorite?
    I like whites. My favorites are sancerres, vouvrays, etc. I'm not that picky. And if it's a mediocre white, I'll just toss in a homemade (boozy) maraschino cherry or two.

    2. Name something you love about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    There are tons of things I love but at the moment there's one that I particularly appreciate: he can fix anything. He can fix anything on a car or computer and can figure out solutions to most issues around the house. In the last day he's resurrected our central air, fixed a leaking hose on my car, and built a fancy security network in my parent's house. He's amazing.

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He can fix anything but will put it off indefinitely. He can find any reason to procrastinate.

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    I think I've tried lots of weird animal (snails, octopus, brains, etc.) but DH thinks I'm a picky eater. I'm thinking durian-- the nastiest fruit imaginable, tasting like a dirty sweat sock. *shudder*

    5. What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?
    Saturday was  the start of DH's new tattoo. Sunday and Monday consisted of my trying to sleep around fits of coughing and a runny nose. I hate allergy season. Oh- and a family barbecue.

    6. When is your wedding?
    We were married October 11, 2014.

    OMG yes yes yes to the bold.  My wonderful husband who will do anything for anyone does that to an extreme fault and our crap doesn't get fixed until it comes to a critical point.  I haven't called a repairman for anything in over 20 years but it takes for freaking ever to get our stuff fixed.  Computers, cars, appliances, I don't care what it is.  He CAN fix it, it is just getting it DONE.

    1. Do you like wine? If yes, then what is your favorite?
    Absolutely, though I drink beer more often because wine can put me to sleep.  Sauvignon Blanc is my favorite right now. @loveislouder  Since you mentioned rum, do you like Dark 'n Stormys?

    2. Name something you love about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.

    He's a very warm person and down to earth; the opposite of a snob.  Totally has my back when my family's being difficult.

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    Very picky eater.

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    I tried a pig foot.  I was with locals at a restaurant in France that was famous for pigs' hoofs and was trying to be totally cool, like I'll eat anything. Then I bit into it and noticed all the little pigs on the curtains, the tablecloth, the doorknobs. And a baby was screaming in the other room; it sounded like a squealing pig.  I just couldn't continue.

    5. What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?
    Worked on our house we've been fixing up since February (hopefully livable by Sept 1st).  Reinforced beams, laid hardwood floor.  Took one day off to go to H's parents' camp in Maine by the lake.

    6. When is your wedding?

    Yaaassssss. I love Cabernet, but I've been digging some Yellowtail Sweet Red Roo lately. 

    2. Name something you love about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He never fails to support me and encourage me to chase big scary dreams. 

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He gets absorbed in video games... which I feel like is a very 21st century dude problem. 

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    While not as badass as the goat story, I've eaten rattlesnake. It's delicious.

    He puts up with me ;) He is very kind and funny. We have the same sense of humor and similar tastes in things.

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He can be hard to read at times. Like I'm not sure if he is having fun or not, even though I know him well enough to know he actually is having a good time. And that he would say something if he wasn't.

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    I had a kangaroo burger when I was in Sydney last December.

    5. What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?
    Brought food over to my mom's house and grilled.

    YES. All of the kinds except sweet wine. My favorite is malbec and pinot noir though. 

    2. Name something you love about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He always manages to make me laugh even when I really don't feel like it, and he treats my cats like the princesses they are even when the throw up in his shoes or something.

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He is VERY indecisive. He wants to look at every option before making a decision. Not a lot of options but ALL the options. 

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    I'm not really adventurous when it comes to food. Frog legs are the weirdest thing I've eaten and I didn't like it. 

    5. What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?
    It was my bachelorette party in Savannah/Tybee!

  • 1. Do you like wine? If yes, then what is your favorite?
    Yes! I like all kinds of wine, but I have a sweet tooth so my favorites are always moscatos and ice wines and ports as long as they aren't the too-sweet artificial stuff.

    2. Name something you love about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He's my biggest fan. He isn't in the band where we met anymore, but he still comes to all my concerts. He isn't a writer, but he comes and helps me set up chairs for NaNoWriMo events. He talks me up to his friends and family constantly.

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    Gross boy things, mostly involving sinks. Like he'll trim his beard and not clean all the gross stubble bits out of the bathroom sink. Or he'll wash the dishes (<3) but then leave the sponge sopping wet in the bottom of the sink so it can grow its very own pet colony of bacteria.

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    Sea urchin, sweetbreads, bear sausage, elk jerky? Bacon maple donut beer? While pregnant, I dipped bagels in pudding and put raisins in quesadillas. I routinely put potato chips in sandwiches for texture. Weird is subjective, but OP's goat blood kinda takes the cake.

    5. What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?
    Friday, fiance surprised me with tickets to a local production of Les Mis. It had been sold out for a few weeks, so I just assumed I'd miss it, but no, he not only planned ahead, he sat through the whole thing despite having zero interest in the show and no knowledge of the story. We went to fiance's grandparents' anniversary party on Saturday and a family barbecue on Sunday. On Monday, I played in a patriotic concert.

  • Rogue Brewery's Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale

    Fiance didn't like it because it is sweet. I liked it because it is sweet and bitter at the same time. It's best consumed with the matching maple bar from Voodoo, but other desserts are also acceptable. I probably wouldn't pair it with anything savory.

    1. Do you like wine? If yes, then what is your favorite?
    Eh, not overly.  I like pink moscato pretty well.  Other than that, sweet stuff.  I know, I'm a bad wine drinker.  I'm not much of a drinker to begin with, we only drink socially a couple times a month, so I don't like anything strong or bitter or anything.  I like margaritas pretty well.  I'd take that over wine any day.

    2. Name something you love about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He is funny and romantic and always kisses me goodbye.

    3. Name something that bugs you about your fiancee/significant other/husband/wife.
    He can barely be on time for anything and will not get out of bed in a timely fashion.  Right now, it is an absolutely gorgeous day outside, he doesn't have to work until later, and I have been unsuccessful in my multiple attempts to drag him out of bed to go do something outside.

    4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
    Probably guinea pig when I was in Ecuador. 

    5. What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?
    Went for a hike yesterday. Other than that, not too much.  Because of my schedule, today is part of my weekend, so (see above) I'm trying to drag H out of bed to go hiking or something before he has to go to work.

    6. When is your wedding?
    December 2012.

    AKA CUY- I'm half Ecuadorean and I'm not brave enough to try it. Was it good?

    I liked it pretty well.  There was a lot of spices, so the meat taste didn't come across super strong. 

    My sister had it a couple years prior in Peru.  When she had it, it was cut into pieces and fried, and she said it tasted like chicken.

    When I had it in Ecuador, it came out looking like an entire skinned guinea pig!  Legs, eyes, everything!  I actually ate an eye, just to say I did.  It was kind of salty and just slipped down.

    I'm a somewhat picky eater and not very adventurous with my food so nothing out of the ordinary.
