Behind the Blog - Husband Edition

I write this blog from my perspective, mainly about myself and my interests. Narcisism at it's best, truly. But I like to include things about my family because I know my only followers are my mom and my brother (hi guys!) But for those of you stopping by to check the place out, I thought I'd give you some insight into my hubby.

 Travis patiently puts up with all of my craziness. Whether it be running, reading, cooking random recipes off Pinterest, or just getting a wild hair up my butt to go do something, he's my willing side kick. I asked him some basic questions so you guys can get to know him a little, too.

Trav's answers are in italics, my responses are in normal font. 

1. Favorite Food to eat and/or make: "To eat? Hmm...I would probably say Cuban food in general." Can you be more specific? "No." about to make? "Hmm...probably stuffed peppers." Why stuffed peppers? "Because I like eating them."

Simple enough, I guess!

2. Favorite Band - (I guessed Deftones before I asked him this question) "There's quite a few, but I'll go with Deftones."  

For Christmas he asked for a complete Deftones fan pack including shirt, poster, and new CD.

What did I tell you?

3. What is your favorite memory as a child? As an adult? - Lots of thinking on this one, I didn't know it was so deep! "I don't know, that's kind of a hard one! Well, I would say my most favorite memories would be family trips like Maryland, Michigan...mostly the trips to Maryland (Lots of family in Maryland). I remember the plane we flew on you could watch the pilot fly because there wasn't a cabin door. Playing Nintendo." Favorite memory as an adult? And don't say our wedding day, that's cheating! "Maybe when I was playing in the band and we played at Fortune Bay with ZZ Top. That was pretty fun." So not like, you know, the day your daughter was born? "Well that's a big one, but I don't think you can count that because everyone would answer that." Ok, I'll give you a pass.

Playing at the Fair in 2011 with the band. This is the night before I had Emily!

4. What do you think about my blog? Do you read it? "Uhm, I read it sometimes? Heh heh..." So that's a no. "But I think it's good that you do it, and...I don't know."

5. Is there anything you want my blog readers to know? "No, because I don't know who your blog readers are!" 
Like he should talk about weirdos?!

That's my husband - clearly a man of many words. But a private one? Not private enough to be bothered by my airing of our life into the internet, though. So basically, he's just weird. But I love him!

Travis posed a good question: Is there anything the blog readers want to know about him or us? Ask away!


  1. Ha! Tell him he should read your blog more :)
    I've never actually eaten stuffed peppers, but I have some recipes pinned that I've been wanting to try out!

    1. No kidding!
      We have stuffed peppers 2-3x a month. They are so easy with ground sausage and Zatarran's black beans and rice. You've got to try them!

  2. lol this made me laugh. It's Dana btw :-)

  3. A little crazy? Ya think? Look who he married! ;)
