I talk about my husband Blake constantly here on my blog, mostly because I'm basically obsessed with him. He is such a huge part of my life, so he's going to come up in conversation a time or two! I thought it was time I'd introduce him to you with a fun little interview! A few months back a few other bloggers did the "So I Married A Blogger" questionnaire with their guys, and I thought that would be fun to try-with a few extra questions thrown in! I had so much fun reading this, and I hope you do too!
This is Blake!Blake is 32 years old. He was born in New Jersey and moved to Florida when he was 9. He started at University of Florida but graduated from Santa Fe with a Associate of Science Networking Service Technology degree in 2005. That means he's an IT guy. He is still a big Gator fan even though the school wasn't for him. He's the smartest person I have ever met. The guy can remember facts and stats like no one else-definitely someone you'd want with you on a gameshow! He's really laid back and has a great sense of humor. He is also incredibly stubborn! Blake is also pretty quiet and that's why I emailed him this interview-he says more virtually than I would ever get out of him in person!
How often do you read my blog?
Almost never. (Laughs) That sounds bad, doesn't it? But there's really nothing your blog about that I didn't either experience with you, or hear about from you shortly after, so I don't really feel compelled to read it.
How involved are you in my blogging process?
Not much; really I just take outfit pictures for you, which I don't enjoy because you're a much better photographer than I am, so you're very picky about your shots. Other than that, the only thing I do is occasionally read over a post before you finalize it. That's when I start pointing out grammatical or syntactical mistakes, and you tell me to leave the room (laughs).
How much time would you say I spend blogging?
Not a lot. Maybe 3 hours a week. At least that's how much time you spend blogging when I'm around.
What do you like and dislike about me being a blogger?
I like that it gives you another outlet for your creativity, and that quite a few people have found useful things on it; that's pretty cool I think. I dislike having to take pictures (laughs).
If you started a blog, what would you write about?
Lots of nerd-related things (laughs). Computers, comics, Star Wars, Star Trek, basically anything with the word 'Star' in it, video games, movies; things like that. I've often thought it would be fun to review movies and video games, especially since I love watching REALLY bad movies and making fun of them MST3K-style. If you don't know what MST3K stands for, please read my imaginary blog.
How do you feel about taking my outfit photos?
I haven't conveyed my feelings sufficiently on this subject (laughs)?
Describe my style!
Describe your style!
Preppy with a hint of nerdy
How many pairs of shoes do you think I own?
100? (LAUGHS) But seriously, probably close to 25.
If you could change anything about the clothes I wear, what would you change?
I don't really think there's anything I'd want to change. You dress pretty good so......(laughs)
What is your favorite outfit to see me in?
Jeans and a t-shirt. I'm a simple man.
How do you feel about how often I change up our decor?
... I'm definitely an "if it's not broke, don't fix it" kind of person so changing up things around the house just for the sake of changing gets on my nerves. However, it usually looks better when you're done, so I won't complain too much.
What would you change about our house?
Definitely the electrical wiring (LAUGHS). That and remodeling the kitchen (new cabinets, knocking down the wall between it and the dining room especially).
What would you change about our home's decor?
Does the kitchen remodel count? Other than that, it would be nice if we could do actual hardwood floors instead of vinyl plank.
What's your favorite room in our house?
Different ones for different reasons. The office, because it's nerd-vana; the living room, because we have a great entertainment setup; and our bedroom, because it's comfortable.
What is one project you've been putting off?
Easy, guest bathroom remodel (laughs). I know you love hearing me say that.
How do you feel about pugs?
Pugs are the single greatest animal in the animal kingdom. Period. Anyone who says otherwise is an insane person.
If you could have more pugs, how many would be too many?
I think 3 would be too many. Actually, 2 would be difficult to handle. The hair alone would clog the vacuum cleaner and lint trap!
What is your favorite thing about having a pug?
Having this little animal that's always excited to see you, even when you just went outside for a second, that always wants to with you, by you, or on you, it's really endearing. And the head tilts. And their tongues and teeth always sticking out of their mouths.
And your least favorite?
Hair shedding and anal gland seepage.
Lastly, what is one thing that most people don't know about me, that I wouldn't be too embarrassed to share?
This sounds like a loaded question that's going to get me in trouble (laughs). I guess I'd say that you really want to live in a giant tree-house, Swiss Family Robinson style.
Just for fun, I had to share this picture of Blake and his sister! I love it!!
Leave me a comment: Did you enjoy that interview? Did you also find the (insert laughs here) as funny as I did?? & It's pretty obvious he hates taking my outfit pictures, right?!
