Love Languages

A couple of nights ago my husband, Andy, and I took a Love Languages test that I read about over on The Pioneer Woman’s blog.  Ree and I are besties (even though she doesn’t know I exist) so when she wrote about her and her husband taking the test I just had to do it!

I took the test first.  It’s 30 questions and only takes 10 minutes (or for me, 5.  I’m a fast test taker.).  My results came back right away (keep reading to see what they were).  Then I passed the laptop over to Andy and had him take it. We laughed together over some of the questions.  I think he was making fun of me. :)   Then his results came back. 

What did the test say about us? We were made for each other!  Our Love Language is the same!  Here are our results.

Andy       Erin            (highest score possible for each ‘language’ is 12)

6             6              Words of Affirmation

9             8              Quality Time

2             3               Receiving Gifts

3             2               Acts of Service

10           11             Physical Touch

As you can see, our Love Language is Physical Touch, followed by Quality Time.  And that is so true for us.  We are always holding hands, touching as we walk by, sitting practically on top of each other on the couch.  Nothing beats spending Quality Time together. (This picture is us dressed up for our 80’s party a few years ago.  No, my husband does NOT sport a mullet. Business in the front, party in the back folks!)

An example of our Quality Time: Yesterday Andy had the day off to play in a golf tournament.  It didn’t start until noon, so after we dropped the boys off at school we ran to our hometown to get some grass seed for a bare spot in the yard.  We laughed so hard the entire time, made stupid jokes and just had an all around great time together.  I joked it was the best date I’d ever been on, but really, it was!  Yea, we weren’t doing anything fancy, but we were together having a great time.  That’s us.  We always have such a great time together.  I used to say I never had as much fun with anyone else than I did with Andy, and it’s still true.  I love all my friends and family, but Andy takes the cake!  Sigh, I really love that guy!  He sure is special.  (And it would take a special guy to put up with all of my weirdness!  I’m so lucky I found him!)

I hope you all take the Love Languages test.  You don’t have to be in a relationship to take it, so see how you ‘speak’.

Have a fantabulous weekend, Friends!!!



  1. You guys are too cute:) I love that you laugh together - that is so important to Eric and I. Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks! You have a good weekend, too!

  2. You two are adorable! Chris and I did this a few years back... He was also Physical Touch (what man isn't?)... and I was Acts of Serivce. I love nothing more than when Chris takes over dinner, the kids, bed time, etc. :)

    I hope you have a great weekend!!

  3. I am physical touch and J is Words of Affirmation. They have a kids version of this too. It's awesome!

    1. I saw the kid one, thought I'd try taking that one this weekend sometime. Thanks for the comment!
