10 They love to travel.
9 They've gone to a single Travis concert and somehow managed to meet the band.
8 They don't like TV. I don't get it (we'll talk later guys, I need to hook you on a few shows).
7 They speak Spanish incredibly well. And say things like El burro sabe mas que tu - oh no, wait that's me (translation: The donkey knows more than you do).
6 They went to the best mission in the world (not California -don't tell my mission president) Argentina! Ole!
5 They seem to really like each other and it isn't wearing off. Emily has lots of cheesy stories -trust me. Ask Dan about the Cold Hands Warm Heart story. Seriously.
4 They both enjoy the element of surprise. And just come home with Emily wearing a ring. Until Marla says WHAT THE CRAP IS ON YOUR FINGER? EMILY ARE YOU ENGAGED? And then they just smile.
3 They are both super churchy and righteous and would never go to Taco Bell on Sunday.
2 Dan eats Emily's cooking and says it's good (Em - I'm just saying. Remember the episode of lemon chicken on Everybody Loves Raymond?).
1 They think this list is SO darn cool that they don't expect a wedding present! (just kidding - it will be a good present - think movies... with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks)
