The Guy Behind the Blog


This is the very first time I am linking up at Heavens to Betsy for her "The Guy Behind the Blog" link up and I'm really excited about it!  I've always enjoyed reading these posts every month but always forgot to do my own.  But I scheduled this one ahead so I would remember. I'm OCD like that.  Anyway, meet my husband Chris.  We have been married for 5 years this July, and together for going on 7 years (and I've known him since I was 13!).  Man, time flies!  I think he's pretty amazing, so I hope you will too.

1. If you could write a book, what topic would you write about and why?
Chris:  I already have a large portion of data written for a fantasy book series with influences from Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Final Fantasy and Harry Potter.  Why?  Because I think I could combine those elements in a way that would appeal to many readers and inspire others.

2. What is one thing on your bucket list, or one thing that you'd like to do or accomplish in your lifetime?
Chris:  My bucket list is to travel the world and see all the sights I possibly can.  More simply, sky diving.
(Me: Oooo, I would love to go skydiving!  Let's do it!!  And travel the world?? Umm, yes please?!)

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?
Chris:  My wife and daughter playing in the sunny back yard laughing and smiling.  Really.  That's all I want.
(Me: <3 <3 <3  Can you see why I love this man?!)

4. Imagine you're opening a shop.  what are you selling?
Chris:  Either a music store (because I'm a musician) or a gaming shop for dorks.  (Because I'm a huge dork!)  Or... maybe a store that has BOTH!  Boom!!  Best of both worlds.
(Me: He won't brag about himself but I will do it for him!  He is an amazing musician who taught himself how to play drums, guitar, bass, and piano!)

5. If you could have 50lbs of anything other than money, what would it be?
Chris:  Comic books.  That was easy!
(Me: hahaha!  I'm almost positive he already has more than that now!)

6. Time to brag on your girl...tell us one thing that makes you proud of your wife!
Chris:  Other than putting up with all my interests (band shows, dork games), I'm proud of her blog!  I am always amazed with how successful she has become and how many people care about her and what she writes here.
 (Me: Aww!  I told you!  Isn't he the greatest ever!? lol)

  3. Awwwhhh #3!!! That is the sweetest answer ever! Such a cute picture of you guys too. The thought of skydiving excites me, but terrifies me. I'm not sure I could actually go through with it!

  4. Isn't he the sweetest?! We are such goofballs so I love that the picture shows that. It was actually taken the day before our wedding. haha!! The thought of skydiving scares me too but I've always wanted to do it. lol

  5. haha really?? That's so cool! I think it's great that we've known each other so long. And he would be in heaven if he opened a store like that! lol! I told him if he ever does then, I get to have my own special room or even the basement for my art. haha!!

  8. Love this! Did you come up with your own questions? How cool that he taught himself to play those instruments. I never had much exposure to music {well, not to playing music... we always listening to it} when I was growing up but I'm always amazed by who people who have talent and ability.

  9. I actually linked up with Heavens to Betsy and she creates new questions for every month. I've never played any instruments. I would love to learn guitar, but I just don't have the patience. lol

  21. haha Everyone's always surprised when I tell them how long we've known each other. He was my best guy friend growing up, that I always had a crush on but never said anything. Apparently the feeling was mutual and I never found out until almost 7 years ago. lol
