S-Corp Paid Personal Expenses of Shareholder - Is it better to list as distribution or loan repay?

I am a 50% shareholder with my wife being the other 50%.  We loaned a the newly formed S-Corp money for start up capital.   That same year we paid some personal expenses from the S-Corp.   Is it best to list this as a loan and partial repayment or as a shareholder distribution for tax purposes on our return?
