The Guys Behind The Blog



if you're stopping by today, you're in for a treat!  it's not too often that i can convince aj to take over the blog, but i asked him if he would do an interview of sorts and he agreed, so we decided to turn it into a link up! so check out the questions and if you want, get your man to answer them and join us!

1 // have you ever had a blog, or have you ever considered starting one?
yes, and like most people i used it for about an hour... so clearly i'm not cut out for the blogging world!

2 // if you could be a member of any band, which one would it be?
mutemath. easy. :)

3 // valentine's day is on the horizon...are you the date-planner type or do you fly by the seat of your pants?  do you have anything planned for february 14 this year?
i am absolutely the worst at planning dates, but i would have to say the pants one... and all i have planned for the 14th is coming back home to pa for a few days.

4 // tell us about a date-night-gone-wrong for you and your fiancĂ©.
ahh, this is right up my alley! last year, on valentine's day, i tried to plan this awesome fun date night around betsy and i visiting a restaurant she had been talking about wanting to go to. i can't seem to remember the name of the place, but it started with a t, so I'll call it t. anyway, we were in the car and i decided to tell bets the plan before a little while before we left for dinner. lucky for both of us, betsy asked me a few questions about the dinner that i, as a dopey-date-planning boyfriend, had overlooked like; is it a fixed menu? and if so did they list a price? i obviously had no clue so we called t, asked about the menu and we're given a list of some of the most unappetizing sounding "food" that we had heard of. (including something called "tea poached monk fish", the name of which was so horrifying that i both remember it to this day and have nightmares about). to make matters worse, the meal cost 60$ per person. so a wonderful valentine's day/anniversary that started with me planning a date ended with betsy and i watching the lego movie in a theater full of kids and single creepy adults. tea-poached-monk-fish 1, date planning boyfriend 0.

5 // and let's cover all the topics...sports...who are you rooting for in the superbowl and why?
the eagles!!! partially because i hate the patriots and the seahawks, and partially because i'm still in denial over the fact that the eagles didn't make the playoffs .

the linkup will be open all week!  grab the questions and we'd love to have you join us!

and next month, we'll be at it again, starting on february 26!  here are february's questions:
1 // if you could write a book, what topic would you write about and why?
2 // what is one thing on your bucket list, or one thing that you'd like to do or accomplish in your lifetime?
3 // if you could look out your window and only see one view for the rest of your life, what would you want to see?
4 // imagine you're opening a shop.  what are you selling?
5 // if you could have 50lbs of anything other than money, what would it be?
6 // time to brag on your girl...tell us one thing that makes you proud of your girlfriend/fiance/wife!

  1. I love this idea!! First of all... AJ calls you Bets, all the heart eyes right now. And I love his SuperBowl answer. Your Valentine's Day date night gone wrong sounds like something that would happen to us, too! What did y'all end up doing instead?

  2. Haha the Valentine's date sounds as awesome as ours!! (On a side note, monkfish is delicious if you like a meaty fish - although I've never had it poached in tea...that does sound a bit unusual.) ;)

  3. I always love hearing from the guys, so fun! That date gone wrong story is hilarious! I don't blame you at all for not wanting to eat $60 tea poached monkfish. ;)

  5. So cute! Mutemath is a good band to be in. I would be in Anberlin. I can't believe my husband didn't pick them or Drew Holcomb. I was actually disappointed in his answer hahaha

  6. Haha! This was awesome! I can relate to the bad dates thing... when Luke and I try to do something fancy it never turns out right. Haha. The simple, game playing, cheesesteak eating dates are way more fun :)

  7. $60 a person... yeah, I would have gone to see the Lego Movie too!

  8. AJ's answers are the best haha! I would accept him into the blogging world :) Thanks for the link-up, too much fun!

  9. What was his hour-long blog about?

  10. I always love these so much! I will have to make sure to link up next month. This looks like fun. My husband isn't really the planning type for dates either. I'm not sure that I would be too excited about monkfish either. That sounds a little weird.

  11. #4 HAHAHAHA!!!!! That is HILARIOUS! Well A for effort! ;)

  12. Haha it was hilarious and turned into such a good memory! And I've never had monkfish, but I really haven't ventured into the fish world farther than salmon, tilapia, and haddock....I like shellfish, but swimmy fish is harder to me to enjoy! But I'm pretty sure the monkfish wasn't even the weirdest thing on the menu...it's just the thing that stuck in our memories!

  13. I know! It was such a good date idea and would have been a total surprise! Good thing he told me where we were going before we headed in that direction!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Please do! It would be great to have you join! I am not a huge fish person, and I'm not even sure what poaching it in tea really means, but I don't think it sounds appetizing!

    ReplyDelete
  15. haha i know! I wish he blogged :)
    Thanks for joining in! Loved Jacob's answers!

    ReplyDelete
  16. haha right?! We were basically the only ones there without kids..bah

    ReplyDelete
  17. Haha well an hour is really an understatement, but he's had a few blogs! I think he's blogged about tech-y music stuff, and he started one about boston when he moved there but posted like twice and then quit. he's a good writer, though he'd probably never admit that!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love when people that I love call be Bets! haha...we ended up going to see the Lego movie because it was the only thing in that sounded interesting, and then going out for Vietnamese! It actually turned into a really fun date night, and a great memory :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Haha amen! We are total homebodies...we love just sticking to what we know and what's easy, or just spending time at home!

    ReplyDelete
  20. We love Mutemath! I used to listen to Anberlin...AJ still does! But Mutemath is his absolute fave. He's been to see them a ton of times, and I went with him to a show in Baltimore a few years ago...they're great live!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Haha yeah....kind of ridiculous! We ended up with vietnamese, which was cheaper and so yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I kind of really like this idea for a link-up. I'm wondering if my husband would answer them for me. lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is such an awesome idea! My post will go live tomorrow and I can't wait to add it to the link up. It was so much fun interviewing my husband and listening to his views on my blog. He was all over the place!

    ReplyDelete
  24. oh I love this! I'm gonna have to convince the hubs to do this next month. That fish sounds..interesting, but maybe not $60 worth of interesting. We usually end up at the movies too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. So much fun! Definitely saving these questions for Feb....it makes a fun date night activity.

    ReplyDelete
