The Guys Behind the Blog // January.

Thursday, January 26, 2017

Welcome to January's Guys Behind the Blog link up!

As most of you might know, Betsy from Heavens to Betsy and Laura from According to Laura Jean hosted a series on their blogs called The Guys Behind the Blog. I used to link up as often as possible ever since I found out about the series - I think I only missed one month in the past year and a half since I found out about it. I recently went back to Betsy and Laura's blogs to find out what the questions were for August only to find out that they weren't hosting anymore - July was their last month. I was SO bummed! I truly loved interviewing Seth each month and seeing what questions they came up with. So, I decided to email Betsy and Laura and see if they would mind if I continued on their series. Thankfully they said they wouldn't mind and would be happy to see the series continue on. Crystal from Hall Around TexasEvelina from Fortunate HouseJamie from Cocktails and CarseatsJessica from Secrets of a Stay at Home Mom, and I are excited to continue the series on! 

For January, we decided to focus our questions on the theme of "cold weather". Here are this month's questions and answers:

1 // Are you a New Year's resolution person? Why or why not?

Laughing. No. I am not a New Year's resolution person. I don't discipline myself enough to follow through with them.

2 // Do you like the colder months or do you prefer the warmer months? Why?

Seth : Gotta love living in Southern California, there really aren't any cold months. That being said, I am always hot, so I prefer the colder months here. I prefer shorts, flip flops, and short sleeve t-shirt weather.
Me : Sooooo.... March through October?
Seth : January through December!

3 // Have you ever been skiing or snowboarding? If so, did you enjoy it?

I've done both skiing and snowboarding. I enjoyed both of them. Though I do tend to hurt myself doing either, because I'm a klutz, but I do have fun doing it and do consider myself good at it... sort of.

4 // Where is your favorite winter vacation you've ever taken?

I've been to Park City, Utah once. That was the first time I ever got to snowboard in fresh powder.

5 // If you were paid $100,000 to stay in a cabin in the mountains (in the winter) with no Internet or TV for a month, could you do it? How would you spend your time?

Looks like his mind is blown.
Umm... yes, I could do it. I'd just go snowboarding a lot during that time. And read books. I could go snowboarding A LOT for $100,000.


February's link up will be on the last Thursday of the month, February 23rd, and the questions will be:

1 // Name two things your wife has taught you.

2 // What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

3 // Valentines Day is usually more about the girl...but tell me, what is something YOU would love to receive on Valentine's day?

4 // What was the best date you and your wife ever had?

5 // If money was no option and you could go anywhere in the world with just your spouse, where would you go and what would you do?

Bonus Questions:
6 // Valentine's Day - Hallmark Holiday or Real Holiday?
7 // What is your favorite romantic comedy movie?

We hope to see you back here on February 23rd to link up with us and share what your significant others have to say! (Also, feel free to grab that first graphic to add to your posts if you'd like!)


A HUGE thank you to Betsy and Laura for letting Crystal, Evelina, Jamie, Jessica, and I continue on their series. It's an honor to be able to continue on what they created.

You can find the original series on Betsy's blog here and Laura's blog here.

Thanks for playing along again, Seth!


  1. Ha ha!! I love that Seth looked like his mind was blown for the last question. Every man so far has said they could do it.

  2. So much truth in #1. I also love that he added a disclaimer to #2 as well. I want to know where I can sign up for that last question. It sounds UH-mazing.

  3. My mind was blown for that last question too! Can we both do it (even in separate cabins) and each get $100k???

  4. We can switch! You guys can move to Canada where we get fresh snow for like 5 months and then I can enjoy beautiful warm weather all the time! Hahaha!
    Xo, Evelina @ Fortunate House

  5. I could do a lot for that much money so I like how he said yes! Money can motivate.

  6. Where can we all sign up for #5? All of separate cabins but all in the same general area. Wouldn't that be awesome?

  7. Yay! Those questions are great, we are headed to Park City in a couple of weeks to go snowboarding!

  8. I'd like to know who couldn't hang out in a cabin with no tv and internet for a month? I mean like alone? Either way sign me up! But just add in my family and that would be my ideal vacation lol.

  9. I am all for #5!!! Just getting a break from everything would be amazing!

  10. Seth's answer to #1 is awesome. I'm with him. I'm not disciplined enough to have any consequences if I don't follow through with a resolute. Oops...
    And #5. I would LOVE for everyone in our family to fully disconnect for a month in a cabin.
