That Place on Valentine's Day

When you're celebrating love overseas.

We don't go big on many holidays, but we did get married on Halloween. Ivy's parents eloped to Las Vegas for their Valentine's Day wedding in a chapel - with another couple they met in line to get hitched.

The minister who married them was named Martin Luther King.

Tony and Ivy got married exactly one year after their first date in the park where they met. In honor of love and celebration of their partnership, here's a cheesy list of Q&A - courtesy of #MrandMsAdventures


💕Answers are honest albeit slightly silly💕


Who's older? Adonis is the oldest; he also acts the youngest.


Who was interested first? Adonis was interested at first sight; he waited patiently for over a year. Ivy confronted him about why he liked her so much, and then she made the first move.


How long have you been together? We've been together 5 years; no breakups.


Married? To each other, yes.


More sarcastic? Tony is more sarcastic; Ivy's the gullible one.


Who makes the most mess? Ivy has more stuff, so.


Who has more tattoos? Ivy has six tattoos; Adonis has none, but he makes fantastic fake tattoos.


Better singer? Ivy's a karaoke fan, and probably a better singer. Neither make the cut for American Idol.


Hogs the remote? Ivy likes the remote and control.


Better driver? The answer is up to your interpretation.


Spends the most? Both spend frugally, though Ivy spends more (primarily on grad school loans).


Smarter? It really depends on the type of purchase. If Adonis makes a discursive argument about cost-benefit analysis, Ivy will cut it short and make a spontaneous purchase.


Whose siblings do you see the most? Ivy's the only one with a sibling; her brother Isaac.


Do you have any children together? Negative.


Did you go to the same school? No.


Who is the most sensitive? Both are sensitive, but Ivy's more sensitive at random.


Where do you eat out most as a couple? Adonis & Ivy don't eat out a lot. The Velvet Cantina in the Mission district of San Francisco serves up the best tortilla soup! Great for take-out on rainy days. More recently, they've been sighted at Mateo's Taqueria.


Where is the furthest you two have traveled? All around the globe!


Who has the worst temper? As Ivy says, "if I were as thin as my patience..."


Who does the cooking? Adonis cooks up a storm and bakes mountains of goodies!


Who is the most stubborn? Adonis is more strong-willed all around.


Who hogs the bed? Ivy does spontaneously perform synchronized swimming routines in her sleep.


Who wakes up earlier? Ivy's the morning bird, and Adonis is the night owl.


Where was your first date? Adonis and Ivy's first date was at his co-living space. He made her some homemade yogurt with honey, walnuts, dates and cranberries.


Who has the bigger family? Ivy's family is HUGE. Her immediate family is small, but still bigger than Tony's family. Her family reunions stem from her great-great grandmother Jefferson, who naturally birthed 17 children(!) - one died at birth. They were named the Sweet 16. Ivy's mom is the oldest of 9, and her dad is the youngest of 7.


Who does the laundry? Tony and Ivy both wash all the dirty laundry.


Who's better with computers? Tony's the computer guru, including quantum computer tech.


Who drives when you are together? Ivy drives when it comes to roadtrips. Adonis reads our designated road trip book aloud. Right now, we're still reading The Game: Undercover in the Secret Society of Pickup Artists.


Who picks where you go to dinner? It depends on who's hungry and how hungry.🤣


Who eats more sweets? Tony used to have the bigger sweet tooth. Oreos are his weakness when it comes to treats. Ever since Ivy gave up alcohol on Labor Day 2018, she's been addicted to sugar and ate ice cream as frequently as every other day for a couple of months.
