The Guys Behind the Blog // July Edition

It's so hard to believe that yet another month has come and gone!  I'm a little bit saddened that the bulk of summer is behind us, but I can't lie, I'm so excited because it means that our wedding is less than a month away!  Just four weeks from tomorrow, I'll be walking down the aisle toward AJ.  

(Confession time:  I've always had this thing where I get sad at the end of vacation or a holiday.  Not just like "oh, that's sad that it's coming to an end," but a deep ache where I really feel saddened by it being over...I've been that way since I was little and I'm already feeling that a little bit about our wedding!  That is, until I think about the fact that the marriage part is what I'm really excited for, and then I just can't wait all over again!)

Next time AJ is on the blog will be our next Guys Behind the Blog August 27, the last day of him being a single guy...but for this month, we're talking about the way to our guys' hearts....through their stomachs!  We're getting into the details of what makes our men swoon and what makes them squeamish when it comes to food...so check out AJ's answers below, and then link up with Laura and I for The Guys Behind the Blog, July edition!

1 // What is your all time favorite food?
My favorite food kind of depends on the day… But right now my favorite food is Blueberry pie as made by my lovely fiancé. It’s really the best and probably the main reason that I decided to propose way back when!

2 // Who is the cook between you and your significant other?
We are both the cook.She can do everything, and I choose not to do anything the way that you’re supposed to do it… So I think we make a pretty good team. And also she is ok with cooking by my main rule which is “If you don’t make a mess, You’re not doing it right”.

3 // What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
I ate alligator once, Which is super weird for me but I think some people in the south would disagree.  I also ate Zebra once at some weird event… The alligator was like tough chicken and the zebra was really good. This confirms my suspicion that we only eat cows and chickens because they don’t bite the way that alligators do and zebras are way faster than cows!

4 // Are there any foods that you absolutely detest?
There is only really one food that I detest I think… I should clarify, I don’t WANT to detest it … I have tried really hard to be friends with it … But every time I try I feel like the relationship just leaves a bad taste in my mouth (HA! GET IT??) … That food is green beans. And Green Beans, If you’re reading this I want you to know that I still have the upmost respect for you.

5 // What is your favorite local, little-known, or hole in the wall place to eat?
It runs in my family to love what most people would consider awful little hole in the wall diner’s and restaurants so this is a great question. One of my favorite little places back home in Reading would be the West Reading Diner. It’s not really that bad in terms of being a hole.. But It is small and holds a lot of memories for me of being in a band and going to get diner food late at night after shows. Also, I ate there with Betsy and some friends a few years ago…. We weren’t even dating yet!! ;) In Boston I think my favorite little place to eat is this place called the “Hidyan Cafe”. It’s just a tiny little sandwich shop on the corner of a street in my neighborhood and they make food just like another sandwich shop called “May’s” that’s on the corner in the neighborhood that I grew up in back home! They also make the BEST froyo at the Hidyan Cafe and I want it right now……. So I’m gonna go……

(I don't often comment on his answers, but I feel like I need to say two things:  when we cook together, he is very messy, and he likes it that way. (And I follow him around cleaning up behind him, but we'll just let him think that I'm "ok" with his little rule.)  And secondly, I would have to disagree with him on the West Reading Diner...it is definitely a hole and I've never had worse home fries than the ones I had the night we ate there with some friends before we were dating.)  

Well, that wraps up July!  The link-up will be open below through next Friday,  so join in on the fun!  Interview your guy and then link up below!  And make note of the following questions for next month's link-up, which will open on Thursday, August 27!
