The Guy Across The Table

Yes, this guy: my out-of-this-world husband, Paul.

If you have read my blog for any length of time, or if you follow me on Instagram, you probably know a few things about him.  He loves food as much as I do and often inspires recipe that show up right here.  He knows me well; sometimes I think he knows me better than I know myself.  We love the same junk food, and baseball team; the lake is our favorite getaway; He loves God with all his might and he inspires me to be a better person every.single.day. 

My friend Amanda decided to dedicate a post to her husband and invited some others to do the same.  I talk about Paul all the time but usually in relation to how much he liked a recipe or how he helped me cook it.  So today, this space is dedicated to my other half, my #1 fan, my biggest supporter, and my partner.  Here are a few questions I asked Paul, and the other ladies asked their significant others, and his answers. 

1. What is my favorite blog called?  He answered “Bake Your Day”?  I don’t think he knows how many blogs I actually read!

2. What is my favorite prop?  He answered “the photo boards I made you” and he’s pretty darn right.  He’s made me four and the first two have a fun story behind them!

3. What is the weirdest thing you have seen me do for a blog post?  He said “ask me these questions”.   Can’t argue with that.

4. If you could have your own blog what would you call it?  He couldn’t think of a blog name but he thought it would be ministry and/or community-focused.

5. What do you do for a living and what are your hobbies?  Minister to Students and Worship Leader.  He enjoys woodworking, playing guitar and singing in his blues band, fishing, riding his motorcycle

6. What are some favorite recipes I have made for you? Buffalo Chicken Dip; Black Bean Burger Quesadillas (and Black Bean Burgers); Pulled Pork; Fried Rice; Rosemary Roasted Nuts; Jalapeno Popper Cups

And for fun, 10 (somewhat silly) reasons I love my hubs:

1. He builds things for me.

2. He makes me laugh every day.

3. He tolerates, and even encourages this crazy blog thing.

4. He has great hair!

5. He does dishes.

6. He really, really loves people and building relationships with others.

7. He loves Mexican food as much as I do.

8. He gives a great massage.

9. He sings.

10. He’s a master of the grill, of quesadillas and of scrambled eggs!

And bonus: he loves me more than I ever imagined possible and I thank God daily that he is in my life.
