The Boy Behind the Blog: Q & A

When I saw this series of questions on Life of a Traveling Navy Wife as well as Ech & Will, I knew I had to find out what my husband would say. He’s a talker with a bit of a potty mouth, so I figured it would be interesting. I wasn’t disappointed. Here we go:

What’s the name of my blog?
(thinking) Something struggles…Sunshine and Struggles

Ding Ding…got that one right!

What do I typically write about?
Lately? The military in general and excited about this one, and then can’t get in this one, and you needed to lose weight to get in, and then on to this one. Now you’re all excited about the Navy to be an officer. And the last one was about the new addition to the family.

Yep pretty much. He really does read this. Really.

What’s a popular fashion item for women right now?
(thinking) Popular fashion item right now? Um I mean which trend are we talking about? Casual or business type? Business world it’s more of a male business look for women with male pants and stuff. Casual it’s more of well the best way to put it is “skanky”…you know revealing shorts and tight tight stuff.

So true.

Why do women go to the bathroom together?
Safety in numbers, to gossip, hold each others bags while they are in there, and sometimes just to fight. LOL!

Well yeah that pretty much sums it up nicely I guess.

What do you know about Pinterest?
It’s a site with pictures on it where you kinda select pictures you like or are interested in and save it to your thing and then you can put your own pictures on it, and it creates kinda like a mini network and helps you find stuff on the topic you like.

And he has his own Pinterest account, so yeah, he knows what it is.

If you could have any job what would it be?
Thinks about it. Any job? I don’t know. I’m a husband and dad. I mean that’s the best job in the world right now. Money-wise I guess a CEO where I could spend a lot of time away with my family.

And that is why I love him so much. He’s also not one to brag about his career either.

What about me (if I could have any job what would it be)?
Online college professor where you could work at home and basically when you wanted to/when you could do all of the activities you want to do and spend a lot of time with me and the kids.

Yeah I’m totally digging working from home this summer. I get now why all of our teachers are so darn excited about it year round.

What’s the best place to shop for women?
Undergarments is Victoria’s Secret. Outfits it’s between Kohls and JC Penney where I get the best things. Sports store for any kind of fan stuff for my little wife. And any gun store for that side of my wife.

Nailed it! 

What does YOLO stand for?
Yellow…cavalry. Oh YOLO: You Only Live Once.

You can’t take the military out of the man. 

What do I do when I am home alone?
Read or play the stupid fucking Candy Crush.

Guilty as charged. Although I do other stuff too like bake, watch TV, or run.

What do you do when you’re home alone?
Well I spend a lot of time with my youngest son, play on my iPad, watch TV, go for long walks.

Lies, lies, and more lies. Ok well he does do all of that, but when he’s truly home all alone…yeah…nope.

What is my favorite activity?
At home around the house it would be reading. Activities: on the motorcycle, going to the range shooting, and scuba diving.

Yes he knows me really well.

What’s my favorite accessory?
Your rings you like to wear, your charm bracelet, changing of your purse to reflect the season.

I’m kinda surprised he didn’t say cell phone, but maybe he just doesn’t think of it as an accessory.

What celebrity would you let me have a free pass with?
Um what’s his name…Channing I guess.

Yeah sorry babe, but Channing would get a free pass. 

What celebrity would you want me to give you a free pass on?
I really don’t know. I mean there’s a few of them that are pretty, but you know something: pretty stands for fucking crazy.

Probably my favorite answer. We both started cracking up before he had hardly finished the sentence. I’m sure he would have followed that up with: “Except for you. You’re not pretty. You’re beautiful, and there’s a difference.” Or something like that.

What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a makeup item?
Uh to me, she’s beautiful as she is so she doesn’t need anything. I know none of them are cheap so $20 I guess.

I don’t think I’ve ever spent $20 on one makeup item.

What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a dress?

Um casual dress probably between $40-$60. If it’s semi-formal probably $100-$150 and for going like all out $200-$250. Though knowing my wife, her prices would be like half of that.

Dang…he’s right. I’m a cheapskate and love finding bargains…and hate spending that much money on clothes.

What is your favorite non-physical trait about me?
I guess a couple of different things. The fact that you are always checking to see if I’m ok, and the fact that you will help me by bringing me something I forget like my keys even if it will take up an hour out of your time. You do it with no sweat and stop whatever you are doing at the time. It makes me feel bad when you ask me to do something for you, and I sigh and it’s like I don’t give the same response of dropping everything. A couple of times I’ve looked back and it’s like man that was selfish.


What is your favorite physical trait about me?
Your boobs

Yep coulda predicted that one ladies and gentlemen. He’s a boob man.

What is my favorite TV show?
(My youngest kiddo said, “Ironman because you like his guns”). I guess it would go between the seasons. We’ve got this thing for Grey’s Anatomy, but now that Mr. what’s-his-name died, it may not be as important to you. [Meh I still like the show] You also like watching Cutthroat Kitchen and your baking competition shows. It’s kind of surprising you like the cooking shows because you hate cooking. I think that’s just because it’s not as strict as your baking with the measurements and stuff.

I really love to bake, but cooking has never really been my thing.

What is your favorite TV show?
Hmmmm I don’t…NCIS is one of the ones I really like watching. I’m kinda torn. There’s a couple of good ones. Every time I get into a series, they cancel it.

LOL yep true.

What is your favorite part about being married to me?

Cop out? Nah…that was cute. 

What is the worst part of being married to me?
90% of the time the worst part of being married to you is that you can’t fucking tell me what you want for dinner.

HA!!! We have more frustration and arguments trying to figure out what to have for dinner than anything else. We both suck at it.

Where do you see us in ten years?
You probably sitting at that same table typing another blog. Between typing that blog and searching for the place we’re gonna relocate to because we will be about 5 years away from relocating at that point.

While it’s nice being here for now, we both love the mountains and fell in love with Colorado/Wyoming. It’ll be interesting to see where we end up when it’s all said and done.

Anything else you’d like to say?

I have a lollipop I’d like to redeem today.

Go figure.     blow pop

Above all else, love one another

  1. So glad you got him to do this, I love seeing how guys answer some of these questions. Your husband’s answer for the bathroom questions was pretty much spot on.
