The Newlywed Game

From Southern Illinois,
The newlywed capitol of the world (not really, roll with me)
Heeere come the newlyweds!!


And now let's meet our one and only couple of the day!

Married for three-and-a-half years, here is Eric and Adrien Robert!
{Applause, applause.}


Haha, I'm joined today by my handsome husband who has willingly agreed to answer a few questions as a "guest" blogger. (More like a co-blogger, really.) All of the questions asked were answered by both of us, and were done so completely separately. I'm just now seeing his answers. Eek! Alright, back to the show....

With the wife secluded safely off stage it's time for some zero-point questions. So listen carefully, Eric, each correct question gets you closer to that grand prize.


1. How will your wife say you would complete this sentence? This is you talking: "Our marriage has the good, the bad, and the ugly. When we go on a date, it's good, when we fight, it's bad, and when we _______, it's just plain ugly."

Eric's Answer: When we both haven't slept, for sure. Particularly on Saturdays, when I've been up since 3:45 a.m., we can both be grouchy stress balls. Most of the time a good late afternoon nap helps quite a bit.

2. In two words, how will your wife describe her exact feeling after your honeymoon? 

Eric's Answer: "I'm pregnant."

3. What will your wife say is the one home appliance the two of you need the most?

Eric's Answer: A new stove.  For some reason our current stove will shut off randomly when baking. It drives Adrien insane.

4. If your wife won $1,000, what would she say would be the first thing she would buy for your house or apartment?

Eric's Answer: New bedroom furniture of some sort. Probably a new bed and side tables, since I doubt $1,000 would get the entire job done.

5. What will your wife say was the most unusual location the two of you ever kissed each other?

Eric's Answer: I'm pretty sure the statute of limitations has passed on this one: Once I definitely planted one on Adrien in the church basement in high school. In a dark room. With a whole bunch of our friends less than ten feet away. I think we were playing hide-and-seek or something, but I can't remember for sure.



Same questions! Here we go....

1. How would Eric complete this sentence? This is Eric talking: "Our marriage has the good, the bad, and the ugly. When we go on a date, it's good, when we fight, it's bad, and when we _______, it's just plain ugly."

Adrien's Answer: When we play Dr. Mario. You've never heard such smack talk in all your life. :)

Eric's Answer:

UUURRR. Wrong.

2. In two words, how would you describe your exact feeling after your honeymoon? 

Adrien's Answer: Blissful (then) Pukey 

Eric's Answer:

Aw, same idea. :) But UUURRR. WRONG.

3. What is the one home appliance the two of you need the most?

Adrien's Answer: Hmm, I need EVERY appliance, haha. I'm going to go with: Dishwasher. We dirty SO MANY dishes every day; I couldn't live without it. 

Eric's Answer:

UUURRR. WRONG.
We've never been good at this game. :)

4. If you won $1,000, what would be the first thing you would buy for your house or apartment?

Adrien's Answer: A new bed! There is simply not enough room in the inn.

Eric's Answer:

DING DING!

5. Where was the most unusual location the two of you ever kissed each other?

Adrien's Answer: At church! Haha.

Eric's Answer:

DING DING!

Two for five! Glad to see we at least remember the important things. ;)


1. What is your husband's most prized possession?

Adrien's Answer: His iPad! Oh my, I think he tinkles with that thing. :) Eric has a lot of sentimental items, too, but I think he would cry if something happened to his beloved iPad.

2.  If your husband were home alone for an evening, what would he feed himself for dinner?

Adrien's Answer: Taco salad. If he answers anything else, he's wrong. Wrong, I tell you.

3. What is the character or sound that your husband imitates the best?

Adrien's Answer: Eric cracks me UP with his JFK impression. Anything that anyone says is instantly funnier spoken as a Kennedy. :)

4. Will your husband say he would be more upset if he lost *his hair (or) *his job. 

Adrien's Answer: I think he'd be pretty upset with either, but his job would definitely be the worst. Luckily, I don't think he'll be losing his hair anytime soon. All of his mom's brothers have full heads of hair!

5. Where did your husband take you on your first date?

Adrien's Answer: I'm in trouble. Eeee....I don't know if I remember. So I'll answer what I think he'll say. The movies. Am I right??


1. What did your wife say is your most prized possession? 

Eric's Answer: Gee, this is really tough. The good thing about not having a ton of money is that you aren't too attached to specific possessions. If I had to pick one I would probably go with my 1964 Fender Jazzmaster guitar. My dad bought it new in 1964 and I found it in our storage shed when I was 11 years old. Finding that guitar gave me an opportunity to learn to play, which is something I'm very grateful to have done.

Adrien's Answer:

URRR. WRONG.

2. If you were home alone for an evening, what would you feed yourself for dinner?

Eric's Answer: Taco salad.

Adrien's Answer:

DING DING!


3. What is the character or sound that you imitate the best?

Eric's Answer: JFK. It's actually a really bad imitation, but it's the only one I do.

Adrien's Answer:

DING DING!

4. Would you be more upset if you lost your *hair (or) your *job. 

Eric's Answer: My job, definitely. If you don't have a job you can't afford a haircut, anyway.

Adrien's Answer:

DING DING!

5. Where did you take your wife on your first date?

Eric's Answer: Our first "date" was at my house. I'm pretty sure. Adrien came over and we watched a movie. The only thing I remember is Denny (my brother) and our now-mutual friend Mike busted in to pick on us. Mike kept saying, "Your hand is a butterfly! Your hand is a butterfly!" as he motioned me to become much too friendly (for a 14 year old) with Adrien.

Adrien's Answer:

URRR. WRONG.
He was so right on that last one. And Mike...that was totally humiliating, by the way. :D

Congratulations, kids, you got exactly HALF of the questions correct! Now let's tell them what they've won. 

Why, it's a lovely avocado green kitchen set! Sure to make all of your retro dreams come true! And look, there's that new stove you've been needing. Enjoy!

Haha. Do you have any idea how odd it is to talk about yourself in the third person on your own blog? It's odd. :) But this was kinda fun! Thank you to Eric for being a good sport!

Today's post was part of the ABC Blog Challenge - Day H: Hello Guest Blogger.  Hope you guys have a great day. (One more day til the weekend!)
