Q & A with the Mr

When I first started this blog, I was afraid to share it with my husband. Silly me thought he would judge me for it. He is in fact extremely supportive of my little space, and little did I know, he actually reads it! (Pretty sure he has Bloglovin' on his iPad.) 

I've seen similar posts floating around blogland this past week and I felt like I needed to jump on board. What better way to get him more involved then to put him in the hot seat. Today also marks nine years that he's been putting up with my shenanigans, so I figure this is one way I can thank him.

Here goes,

What is the name of my blog?
t.o. & fro

What's the meaning behind the name?
Well, Toronto. It's a play on words.

(He has this look when he's not impressed. If you know him well, you know "the look". I got "the look" when I asked this question.)

What do I write about?
You write about your travels, eco-tips, general interest, your life as a 'hockey wife'.

What is your favourite post that I've written?
All of them? I don't know if I have a favourite. Maybe one of your posts about our adventures. Why? Am I being a part of the blog? 

(He just clued in.)

What are some things we like to do together?
You and I? (Made some comment about the state I was in the other night after drinking a bottle of wine that I cannot repeat.) Do I have to answer this?

We enjoy making good food and drinking good beer and wine. We love the outdoors. We like hunkering down on the couch, picking a new series and watching a few episodes at a time.

What do I do while you're on the road?
This year? Or the past three years? The last couple of years you've gone through different stages of "trinket" making. I really don't know. Not much?

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I just like to relax. I have to be mentally and physically sharp during the season, so when I get down time I like to turn everything off and do nothing.

What is the most annoying thing I do?
How much more space do you have? I try to be very neat and tidy and like being organized, and you do not. I like getting rid of everything, you like keeping everything. I like vacuuming and I still don't think you know what that is.

What is your dream vacation?
I don't think I have one yet, I haven't been to enough places. I just want to travel everywhere. But it probably would include a lake and a cabin.

What's your go-to outfit?
My Lulu Lemon dress pants are the most comfortable thing I own.

What's our favourite meal to make together?
I don't think we have a favourite. We like making new things. But if I had to chose, I do enjoy your fettucine alfredo.

What's your drink of choice?
A nice strong IPA, old-fashioned or single-malt scotch.

Anything else you'd like to add?
Just for the record, I didn't know I was being interviewed until half way through this interview.

Happy 9 years to my one and only! (Can I say 9 years, or do you hit a restart button when you get married?)

I hope everyone has a good long weekend. My eco-tip of the week will be back on April 26.

Happy Easter!

    1. It was a lot of fun, especially since he didn't know he was being interviewed.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Adorable! I also didn't tell my boyfriend, or anyone, about my blog until about a month ago. Only a few people know now, but I am so happy he knows about it. He asks how its doing and everything, maybe I will interview him soon :)

    1. Thank you! It was a lot of fun, and I think I'll involve him more from now on.


I would love to hear from you!
