Meet Mr. in the Midwest

Well, I thought it was about time for the blogosphere to be introduced to my better half: Ryan Anderson, or as he likes to call himself, Mister in the Midwest. I already am cracking up.

Last night of our honeymoon in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

I first got the idea for this post from Katie and Mia, and Ryan was more than willing to subject to this Q&A. I used a variation of the same questions that Katie used, as well as my own questions.

I hope it provides you some insight into this hilarious man I married – enjoy!

Me: What is the name of my blog?
R: Miss in the Midwest, duh. 

Me: What do I typically write about?
R: Beauty supplies on Wednesdays, recipes on Tuesdays, and Mondays should be all about me.
Me: What about Thursday and Friday? And, what’s really on Mondays?
R: Thursday is sometimes Thankful Thursday and Fridays are the High Five for Friday linkup. And, Mondays are your weekend recaps, right? Wait no, style posts.

Me: What’s a popular fashion item for women right now?
R: Are you kidding me? Obviously, maxi dresses. 

Me: Where’s my favorite place to shop?
R: What category? It depends. I need to know if we are talking about clothes, shoes, makeup, home decor, or general stuff.
Me: Okay, general stuff.
R: Well, obviously Target then. 
Me: And, in your opinion, where is the best place for women to shop?
R: Um … I still say Target because it has everything you need in one place. And, to me, that’s a bulls eye.

Me: What do you know about Pinterest?
R: That men should be banned from it. 

Me: What is my favorite thing to look at on Pinterest?
R: Pictures of hair. For sure. Or home decor.

Me: What part of our rental home do I enjoy most?
R: The couch? No. The fireplace? I don’t know.
Me: No! The swing set, duh!
R: Oh. When you say home, I was thinking inside.

Me: What’s a Hunter wellie?
R: Is that like, Hunter/wellie? An old wooden ship. 

Me: What obnoxious acronym do I always say to annoy you?
R: YOLO. And, you’re only going to live once more if you continue to say it. Note: he’s kidding.

Me: What do you and I like to do together?
R: Workout, go to the movies, watch the Chicago Blackhawks, enjoy a glass of whiskey (oh wait, that’s just me), and swing on the swing set. 

Me: Am I good at staying on a budget?
R: Yes, absolutely. 

Me: What’s the 2014 Pantone color of the year?
R: Um, again, are you kidding me? Coral!
Me: Actually, it’s Radiant Orchid.
R: Same thing.

Me: What do women keep in their purse?
R: Lip products, a wallet of some sort or clutch, sunglasses, hand sanitizer, and cellphone (obviously). 

Me: What do I do when I’m home alone?
R: Besides napping? Work on your blog, do your VA Network homework, and above all, wife duties.
Me: And what do you do when you’re home alone?
R: Watch TV. 

Me: What’s my favorite accessory?
R: Oh my gosh, is this even a real question?
Me: Yes.
R: Scarves! Hence the 8 million you have.

Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a makeup item?
R: No more than $5.59.
Me: Why $.59?
R: I thought I would give you some leeway. 

Me: What jewelry do I wear everyday?
R: Your wedding rings and some sort of necklace. 

Me: What’s my favorite TV show?
R: I don’t know if we have time to go through all these. Are we talking current or past? Obviously, the number one all-time favorite would be Full House. Current ones include Revenge, Scandal, Nashville, Pretty Little Liars, Mad Men and Downton Abbey. 

Me: Anything else you’d like to share?
R: I could have had something prepared for this interview. I am happy to share these answers with all the readers and followers of Miss in the Midwest, and I look forward to making another appearance on here soon. Because this isn’t over folks.
