1.  Me, no. DH did rodeo as a teen but it was not a school activity.

2.  He grew a beard for my birthday.

3. No, I do not like it.  It was semi popular at the time.   Most people with my name were born in the late 50s-early 60s.

1. Were you involved in sports/activities in school? Was your SO?  Yes, I did gymnastics from K-7th then switched to soccer and played that through h.s.  I was also involved in a variety of activities in h.s. like student government and was editor of our school newspaper.  Dh played soccer but I have no idea what other activities he participated in in h.s.  We both continue to participate in athletics - I'm a runner and he's training for his first triathlon.

2. What is the last thing your SO did for you that surprised you?  Purchased a piece of pottery from Ireland and gave it to me as a gift.  I'd seen it on our trip there last fall and strongly considered purchasing it but we'd already bought several things.  I regretted it the minute we left that town.  I told him so and behind my back, he called the store when we got home and ordered it for me.

3. Do you like your name and do you know why you were named that?  Yes, but I didn't when I was a kid.  No significance to the name other than my parents liked it.

2. What is the last thing your SO did for you that surprised you? Bought me nice chocolates about an hour ago.

3. Do you like your name and do you know why you were named that? Yes and yes.

Well said, Spring.

1. Were you involved in sports/activities in school? Was your SO?

I was very involved, but dh only did a few nerdy "clubs," like Math club, Science club, lol.  And he did pick-up games in the 'hood.

2. What is the last thing your SO did for you that surprised you?

I made a big household decision on the spot in a store without consulting him, and he was okay with it!  It's a long story and I come out bad in it. Smile

3. Do you like your name and do you know why you were named that?

Yes.  To put it briefly, I was named this because my mother knew no one could misspell it.

I assume you mean high school? Me: Band, Colorguard, Drama

SO: band, art, drugs. ;) (Not now, just high school)

2. What is the last thing your SO did for you that surprised you?

Took the kids to his hometown for almost 2 weeks and let me stay home.

3. Do you like your name and do you know why you were named that?

No, I'm not fond of it, but it's mine and I'm too lazy to change it. I was named after my maternal grandmother.
