The Guy Behind The Blog {June 2016}

One year ago I interviewed the hubby for the first time and shared his hostile hysterical answers in a monthly link-up called ‘The Guy Behind The Blog’. It was so much fun (for me) that the tradition stuck around and over the past year he has done several more interviews. You can see the collection of posts HERE.

The Guy june
Russ doesn’t exactly love these interviews, being married to a blogger or any form of social media really. But, he does love me. So when a scheduling error popped up and I asked to do this post at the last-minute, my knight in shining armor came to the rescue.

1// What did you have as a child that kids today don’t have?
A life without the internet. It was amazing.

2// What did you want to be as a child when you grew up?
A stuntman for movies…. is that specific enough?

3// What three adjectives would you use to describe fatherhood?
*Long pause of silence*
I don’t know…fun, challenging, and rewarding.

4// How many years have you been a father and how many children do you have?
Do I really need to tell you? It seems like you could probably just fill it in on your own there?
Me: Yeah, I was hoping that would be your answer :P.
*Beth types in* Eight years, 2 girls.

5// What is one piece of advice or wisdom you would like to pass on to your children?
To always put your relationship with Christ first.
Oh and don’t trust boys (except for me),

He is a man of few words, but he always leaves me laughing.
So thankful for this guy and that we get to do this thing called life together.

  • Don’t trust boys except for daddy! Words to live by, daughters of ours!

  • bahahhaha…love those last couple answers.

  • Don’t trust boys. Hahaha!

    • I can’t say I blame him on that one. Oh the over protective father in him is already starting to show :D.

  • I like his answers!

  • I just love his answers! #4…haha, and #5 yes so true!

  • chall1018

    I always love his answers! #5 is my favorite, though!!

    • Number 5 is my favorite too. Such a goober.

  • Hehe, he reminds me of my hubby. He is a man of few words, but when he does talk, it always packs a punch and makes you laugh!

    • YES! That is EXACTLY how Russ is. So you know the type all to well to huh :P.

  • Russ SOOO reminds me of Brian!!! Those bearded men are pretty funny πŸ˜‰

    • Lol! I know right?! I think that all the time when reading Brian’s interviews. It HAS to be something to do with those beards, right?! Its like it gives them super powers.

  • The Mister is not a fan of this series so I gave it up.

    • Yeah Russ doesn’t love them either. I actually don’t have any planned for the future but I am so glad he bailed me out when I dropped the ball.

  • #4 could have been a life changer. What if that was his moment to break it to you that Marissa & Emily had some older siblings he needed to tell you about? πŸ˜‰ #blogworthy

    • Bahaha! Exactly. You’d think after 10 years you’d know these things… but I am sure it’s happened to someone before, lol.

  • Okay, his first answer made me laugh and his last answer was awesome!

    • Sometimes I wish we could go back to pre social media days… those were good times.

  • Jessica

    I love Russ’ answers!! His enthusiasm for this is so great. (kidding) HA ha! My favorite is that you had to insert the answer. Silly man.

    • EXACTLY. You can practically feel his discomfort through his words, lol. So, so silly

  • Meghan Flinn

    Ooh a stunt man is cool! And I love that he does it for you even though it’s not his favorite!

    • Me too. Although I don’t have any more of these planned for the next 5 months…. yes, I do plan that far ahead *blushing*.

  • I know a life without the internet. Go figure… And we turned out fairly normal right? Your guy is so cool.

    • I think so too. Sometimes I think the Amish have it all figured out. A simpler world might not be such a bad thing. I kinda miss the pre-internet days.

  • Whitney Jordan

    I always enjoy his hostile answers πŸ™‚ Solid advice to be skeptical of boys! Growing up without the internet was nice. Makes me feel old, but we didn’t have a computer at my parent’s house until I left for college. They got one so they could email me haha

    • My parents never (and still don’t) had a computer. I had to do my typing on a word processor. Bah ha! Remember those crazy things?!
