An Interview With My Husband (men say the darndest things)

interview with ryan

After seeing Maeg from The Modern Tulip post this fun and silly interview with her husband I just knew I had to participate.

I talk about my husband, Ryan a lot but we don’t really ever get to see things from his perspective that often. So today he’s getting his chance to shine by answering a few very important questions:

Me: What is the name of my blog?
Ryan: A Beautiful Little Adventure

Me: What do I typically write about?
Ryan:  Either food recipes or reflections on life

Me: What’s a popular fashion item for women right now?
Ryan:  Seriously? Um…Um…jeggings? (Barf Ryan) I have no idea. That’s what I see all the girls wearing in Center City Philadelphia all day. Isn’t that what they’re called? (let it be known that I do not own a pair of jeggings)

Me: Why do women go to the bathroom together?
Ryan: To talk and gossip 

Me: What do you know about Pinterest?
Ryan:  It’s a place where people post different idea about things, anything you can possibly think of is on there, like all the meals you cook for me or craft you want to do. 

Me: If you could have any job what would it be?
Ryan: A weather guy in California, because the majority of my job would be sitting outside saying, it’s sunny, it’s warm and they get paid a whole lot of money to be on TV for like a minute. And it’s one of the only professions that you can be absolutely wrong  but still keep your job. That or get paid to sleep all day. (wow he’s really thought this through)

Me: What about me?
Ryan: Most definitely a mom. Or  an author or the executive producer of Teen Mom 2. (I have no idea where the producer idea came from other than the fact that I love watching Teen Mom 2 haha)

Me: What’s the best place to shop for women?
Ryan:  J Crew outlet because the real store is too expensive. Also Old Navy because it’s affordable and you can’t go wrong with basic generic stuff.

Me: What does YOLO stand for?
Ryan:  You only live once.

Me: What About OOTD?
Ryan: Am I supposed to know this?  I have absolutely no idea.

Me: What is our favorite thing to do together?
Ryan: Go on long weekends or day trips. 

Me: What do I do when I’m home alone?
Ryan:  Cook, watch all the girl TV shows that I don’t like to watch. Clean. Blog. 

Me: What is my favorite activity?
Ryan: Reading

Me: What do women keep in their purse?
Ryan: wallet, receipts, tampons, little make up things, pepto bismal, sunglasses, endless pit of other stuff

Me: And what do you do when you’re home alone?
Ryan: Go CRAZY! No. I watch tv shows like The West Wing and The Wire and Family Guy, pick up around the house, and sleep. 

Me: What’s my favorite accessory?
Ryan: Big necklaces and bangles. 

Me: What celebrity would you let me have a free pass with?
Ryan: Leonardo DiCaprio because I know how much you love him, maybe that will help him win an Oscar. (Too cute Ryan, too cute)

Me: What celebrity would you like to have a free pass with?
Ryan: Crap now I have to think of one. Jennifer Anniston. (This kind of shocks me)

Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a makeup item?
Ryan: $10. (yikes, don’t look at my Sephora bills!)

Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a dress?
Ryan: $200. (Wow, good to know! Let is be known that the only dresses I’ve bought over $150 were for wedding related events. After I told him that he said, “I take it back! I take it back!”)

Me: What is your favorite trait about me, not physical?
Ryan: I love that you’re always optimistic and that you’re always reminding me that life is an adventure and to not let the bad overwhelm me and to not lose sight of the big picture.

Me: What’s my favorite TV show?
Ryan: Gilmore Girls (Cute that’s one of my top 3! I didn’t even know he knew about it)

Me: Who is a current celebrity “it” couple?   
Ryan: Um. No clue. Can I flip through one of your US Weeklys quick? Um…is Selena Gomez seeing someone these days? (he starts flipping through an Us Weekly) Oh! I got it! Kim and Kanye! (I guess he doesn’t listen when I blabber about this stuff)

Me: Anything else you’d like to say?
Ryan:  Sorry, what? (he was busy still flipping through the Us Weekly) Look it’s Taylor Swift taking her Scottish fold cat out in NYC. (Blank stare) I know how much you love Taylor, so i thought i’d tell you. Is that all the questions?

  • Ha! I’m with him on the makeup items — I hate spending more than $10 on a single thing! But I’m going to have to suck it up eventually, because I’ve now tried every single drugstore mascara brand and hate all of them.

  • I love this! Men are so funny. I love his answer for what’s in a woman’s purse. I am so making my husband do this.

  • Hahaha too funny…men are point blank arent they 🙂

  • LOL “is that all the questions?” ! He’s such a good sport 🙂

  • This is cute! I did one of these last week, and Austin did okay, except that he said that a popular fashion item for women was yoga pants. I’m still really stumped on why he thinks they’re fashionable and not simply functional…

  • Oh this is golden! One day I hope I can find a man who says I’m allowed to spend $200 on a dress 😉
