During my shower, we played a handful of games - some I've played before and some I hadn't. One of them I requested in some way shape or form. I've always loved the games where the bride & groom answer the same questions. I didn't necessarily care what happened with those questions. I just wanted to play the game!
Turns out I didn't really play the game, but I did participate by letting everyone know who said which answer after they'd all written their guess down by using the lips or the mustache.
Katie asked us each about 30 questions and then she chose like 20 to use for the game. Without further adieu...our questions/answers. Obviously blue indicates JC and pink indicates me!
What is your least favorite food? Anything I’ve never tried before. // Anything organic.
What first attracted you to JC/Samantha? It definitely wasn’t the white sunglasses on his head at the wedding….probably how open he was, didn’t play games and never made me feel the need to second guess things. // Her smile.
On our first date, I was most nervous about? Awkward silence // Doing something stupid.
When I think about our engagement, the thing I most remember is? JC staying down on one knee for quite a while before ever asking me the question – he just said “well??” and I said “well you haven’t asked me anything yet!”. // All the people in the bar clapping.
What was the moment you knew JC/Samantha was the one? There isn’t really a specific moment where I knew. After all that we went through in late 2010, it just became very evident, when it all worked out, that this was meant to be. // When she started doing my laundry.
If you could burn one thing in Samantha’s/JC’s closet would what it be? Those hideous camo shorts he recently had his Grandma alter pants to make. I can’t believe he wasted his Grandma’s time with those! // Her Ugg boots.
What is the best gift Samantha/JC has ever bought you? A Pizza Hut gift card & DVD of his favorite movie. Oh wait, you said best – my engagement ring. // My first handgun.
When was your first kiss? The Friday after John & Katie’s wedding. Let me get a calendar out – 9/11/09 ;) // The first Saturday night I went to visit her. (it was definitely a Friday!)
What is your favorite thing Samantha/JC cooks for you? Breakfast // Chocolate Chip Cookies.
What is the most annoying thing that Samantha/JC does? Clears his throat 17 times every single morning when he gets out of bed. // Throws clothes all over the spare bedroom.
In 5 years, I see us ___ ? In a new house with at least one puppy…// In a new house with the puppy she's always wanted.
If you were an animal, which animal would you be? A puppy! // Grizzly bear.
If you could have any superpower what would it be? Teleportation // To be able to fly. (he hates to fly...)
What do you love most about JC/Samantha? His ability to solve problems and think outside the box. // That she is so nice.
If I had to pick two celebrities to play us in a movie, I would pick? Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper // Jennifer Aniston (he's obsessed) & Mark Wahlberg.(this one provided some laughs)
What is one thing you cannot live without? My phone // Oxygen.
If you moved to mars, what would you be doing there? Phoning home. // Trying to figure out how to get back to earth.
What is something most people don’t know about you? I love to gamble. // I have 2 different colored eyes.
Cost aside, what is the one thing (not a person) you would want to have at your wedding that you are not going to have? Videographer & bistro lighting – did you say just one thing? // Donut truck. (I thought he'd say live band - and I actually tried to surprise him with a donut truck, but the guy stopped responding to me & then we were too far over budget to add anything else)
What are your expectations for marriage? To always have someone to lean on when things get rough, knowing there’s not an easy way out. // To have fun & spend as much time together as possible.
What is one thing you will be sure to do on your wedding night? Kiss JC a million times and tell him I love him more than I ever have. // Have the best night of my life.
What are you most nervous about on the wedding day? Being the center of attention // Anything not going as planned. (this one definitely made me smile because he knows how much work I've put into planning!)
What are you most excited about on the wedding day? Marrying JC and being able to celebrate that with all of our closest friends & family. // Having all my friends and family there on the best day of my life.
What is your most guilty pleasure? Trashy TV and fried food – together…. // Watching Real Housewives of Orange County.
Definitely some funny and of course some sap - sap that I didn't expect from JC because he's not usually one for words and romanticalness.
Something I randomly noticed when typing all this out - we both ended every answer with a period, even if it wasn't a complete sentence. #perfectmatch
Do you have any bridal shower games that you actually enjoy? Did you play this game & your groom surprised you like mine did?!
