Blogger Men Tell All // March

Ready for more sarcastic Justin? I definitely am! I hope you enjoy these posts as much as I do!

1) Do you like to cook? If yes, what’s your favorite thing to make?
Yes, very much so. And by cooking, I mean “grab things in the fridge and throw them into a pan with some BBQ/Soy sauce and see what happens”.

In reality though, I’m pretty decent. I can’t bake though. Requires too much precision and I never measure. Most of my baking adventures normally end up burnt on the outside, doughy on the inside, and either imploded or growing extensively out of its intended shape…


I did successfully make cream puffs once. They were delicious. I ate them in roughly 1/4 the time it took to make them. Not sure if it was worth it.

2) What is the last movie you saw in a theater?
I haven’t been to a movie theater in around a year. I can’t remember, and Tayler can’t remember. Andif Tayler can’t remember, then all is lost. (Tayler: It’s because we are new parents.1..we haven’t had the opportunity since before July 2014! But we have been doing a lot of Red Boxes!)

3) Can you name five makeup brands?
Maybeline, Sephora, Revlon, Avon, Mary Kay.

Combination of stupid commercial jingles and the amount of Project Runway Tayler watches.

No Judging.

4) What are your biggest pet peeves?
Oh boy, here we go…

-Not finishing food/beverages in a decent amount of time. I’m sorry, but if you have a half-finished glass of lemonade, and you set it down, and its not drunken in 1 hour, I’m drinking it. You had your chance. Clearly my desire for lemonade outweighs my fear of germs and your ability to finish a beverage.
-People who order their steaks Well Done. If you want a steak well done, you order the chicken. In fact, throw Medium Well in that category too. I like my steaks Blue Rare. If I poke the steak, I want it to Moo. I want a veterinarian to still be able to bring it back to life. Take the steak, show it to the grill, let it cower in fear, and then serve it to me.

-People who order food at a restaurant that is atypical for said restaurant. Go to a pizza joint and order a salad? That’s a sin. If you wanted a salad, then go home and throw some ranch dressing on the leaves and grass outside your house so I can get my pizza faster. I’m also gonna drink your lemonade that you left on the table.
– When playing Fire Emblem, getting hit by an enemy multiple time in a row when their hit percentage is less than 30%. Yes, I’m aware there’s technically a chance that it happens, but its still annoying.
– People who invite me to play candy crush. If I have time for candy crush, then I have time for Fire Emblem. Or Zelda. Or drinking lemonade.

We went the entire month of March without eating anything with added sugar, give or take a day. I had a pie shake on Pi Day. Its a family holiday so it didn’t count. I just had a lemonade from Chik-Fil-A today for the first time in what feels like forever. Kind of on a lemonade kick. No shame.

5) What are your biggest goals in life right now?
-Beat my English Teaching wife at Boggle.
-Reach my goal weight for the year. New Years Resolution is still going strong.
– Make some serious goals for my life.

  • Haha he and my hubs have the same attitude about steak–I always ask for well-done and Zach ALWAYS teases me about it. Love Justin's 'obsession' with lemonade. 🙂 Thanks for letting us get to know him a little more!

  • Haha I loved how Justin's pet peeves were mostly about food! I can relate! I'm also in awe that Justin likes his steaks rarer than I like mine…I'm from Wyoming where we take our meat pretty seriously and even I can't do anything rarer than medium rare.

  • I want it to moo. lol My husband is one of those that likes it well-done. But I'm with you on the rare.

  • And the funny thing is, he says that exact speal to the waiters!

  • Food is definitely Justin's passion…he would love to be on a Food Channel show, like Diners, Drive ins, and Dives or Man vs. Food.

  • At least I pass by liking mine medium-rare. The worst was when I was pregnant and had to get at least medium-well done!

  • Hahaha! I think he'd like that

    I cringe at the blue rare though. Eewwwwww.
    I'm totally impressed with Justin's knowledge of makeup brands!
    You're not alone in the movie going category. Since Marcus' birth (THREE YEARS AGO) I can count on one hand how many times we've been to an actual theatre.
