The Beard Tells All

Hey All! I'm having a wild time at Plymouth Rock today, pilgrim-style. The Beard is still a little mad that I got to go to Fenway last night without him, but he's got some good news for y'all. He's posting today!
Boys Behind The Blog

I saw this link-up on my friends blog and thought - "Man. My husband is way more interesting and funnier than any other blogger husbands in the history of ever, so this could be fun." When I asked, I suspected the exasperated "Noooooooooooooo" like when I ask him to take outfit photos, but he actually responded with an enthusiastic "Ok." Pretty good, right? So here goes. Now you can all see why I like him so much. (I set up this post and he wrote it after I left... therefore I take no responsibility for the following)

1. Does your wife use your real name or a nickname on her blog?
    On the blog I'm known as "The Beard." Which is fine with me. I have a beard, and beards are awesome. So I'm cool with it. Plus, it gives me leverage when she's trying to talk me into shaving it. 
D: "Pllleeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaassseeeeeeeeeee shave the beard!"
Beard: "Sorry babe. Can't do it. It would confuse all of your blog followers. I can't be "The husband formerly known as 'The Beard.' That would be CRAZY!"

2. If you had a blog, what would the title be?
    I used to have a blog. It was called Breakfast with Cheerios after the name of the Morning Radio show I used to host on KOHS 91.7 FM. I've been thinking of starting a new one where I could write about baseball. I'm considering calling it Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, and Beards for Days or Left in our Field, Right in our Hearts: The Manny Ramirez chronicles. The biggest thing holding me back is that I am unapologetic homer and would write about nothing but how awesome Pedro used to be, how awesome Pedroia is right now, and how bad I hate every Yankee, ever. I'm not sure anyone wants to read that but me...

3. Do you ever feel ignored by her because of the blog?
    More so when she is reading blogs than when she is writing her own. But we have a good system worked out. If she is blogging then I get to watch baseball. Seriously, my subscription is the best thing that ever happened to us. Sometimes she even pretends to be interested when I tell her every player's life story. 

4. How has her blog changed or evolved throughout your relationship?
     I think she created it when she went to Wales, so every post was "Me and a bunch of girls made a pyramid in front of some historic landmark." Now its pretty much "Take a picture of me wearing this new maxi dress so I can post it on my bloooooooooooog." 

5. What is your favorite post on her blog?
    I like the ones about me. I think we can all agree that those are the most interesting. Also, I'm not sure how many of you know this, but Sometimes, Always, Never was 100% my idea. I was even going to write a post for BYU Style about T-Shirt Necklines with that title but never got around to it. But I really think my favorite post was this one. 


  1. That was awesome, Ryan. I am now going to use this to try and get my husband to write on my blog. Or at least read it. Love you guys.

  2. love it. doing it. so many other good questions are coming to my mind!

  3. love this! doing it. you and your husband are the cutest D!
