Today I have a little something different for you….Taylor, my husband is going to play blogger and answer some questions about me. You can see his answers from last year, here. We are the stereotypical opposites in a marriage. He’s a numbers guy/I like to avoid numbers at all costs. He likes to run/I like to eat. I think buying something on sale is saving money/He is a numbers guy. We definitely see the world through very different lens but somehow we find a way to balance each other. And as the years go by (11!) we are finding more ways to have fun. I will warn you that our love language is sarcasm so expect a
little lot of that thrown in!
If I had to choose two photos to sum up our relationship I feel like these would be it:
(A few remarks from me in italics. You know I have to have the last word, ha!)
How involved are you with Beth’s blog? Extremely. I’m tasked with staying away, keeping the kids away, reviewing posts (although I have no idea what I’m reviewing), nodding in approval when I think Beth is looking for approval and disagreeing with I think she’s looking for that.
He is a great support! He is lucky I have “blog friends” too or I would be forcing him to be even more involved!
How often do you read the blog? Are you an avid reader or do you see enough at home? Not much. Thanks for putting me on the spot.
This answer hasn’t changed from last year…clearly reading my blog is not on his daily to do list!
How much time does Beth spend on her blog? What are her hours like? Not sure during the day, but it’s usually an hour or 2 before bed.
Are you the cheap manual labor or is there hired help for that? In other words, does Beth use you for your handy work? I think Beth is graduating to professionals. The better her eye, the worse my skills.
I come from a place of yes….he comes from a place of realistic, logistical details (#overrated) I have also learned the value of having a professional take my headshot. Here are what it looks like when Taylor is behind the camera.
Describe Beth’s style. Cool
Describe your style. Beth’s style
How often does your home change? I used to think it was way more frequent than “normal” people, but I’m trained to believe the answer is “not enough” now. I expect little changes every couple weeks and something big like new or rearranged furniture or a painted room once a quarter.
How many different sofas have you had since marrying Beth? 11 years of marriage and our 5th sofa was just ordered. I believe both of those numbers are correct…
How often do you offer decorating advice? Does she consider your opinion? Never. Never.
Kinda true…I try to take his taste into consideration but really his taste is my taste so…
What does it really look like behind the camera? Have you ever seen Christmas Vacation? Like the end of the movie after the family is gone. We have 9, 6 and 3 year old kids and a 14 year old Jack Russell.
What is a project that you hate but have never voiced (or maybe you have)? I’m not that dumb.
Smart guy…he also probably hated these…
Do you know of Beth’s blogger friends? If so, who’s your favorite? Wow, can’t answer that either without causing some trouble.
He loves you all
What’s your favorite aspect of Beth being a blogger? Least favorite? Love watching Beth grow her business, love watching her visions come to life, love seeing her passionate about something she’s really good at.
I can answer for “least favorite”…me coming to him saying “Just hear me out on this idea…” Sends shivers down his Type A spine!
What are your household chores? Related to the blog – less and less, see #4. General household – the normal herding kids and helping Beth with all the day to day tasks that it takes to keep a house running.
What’s something about Beth that her readers might not know (but she would be okay with you sharing)? She can make a decision in a heartbeat for a client. She knows exactly what to do…for our house…there’s some analysis paralysis.
What does Beth REALLY want for Valentine’s Day, and what are you getting her? A trip back to Excellence Resorts. Not that.
Now go see what the rest of the husbands had to say!
