Happy Ryday! We’re back with another edition of the Guys Behind the Blog link up. For those of you who don’t know about this link up, it is hosted by Betsy at Heavens to Betsy. Each month she comes up with a list of questions for her husband to answer on her blog. This month, the prompt is “currently” so I’m going to have Ryan answer what he’s currently up to! While he was writing this, he suggested I throw in my answers to the questions as well so I did because of course us bloggers love to talk about ourselves. What are you currently… Watching? Ryan: Gotham and I’m waiting for The Walking Dead & Better Call Saul to return Kayla: FRIENDS! I’m on season 9 now but I don’t really want it to end. Reading? Ryan: The Walking Dead Compendium 3 that Kayla got me for Christmas Kayla: Right now I’m reading All the Bright Places and Mindy Kaling’s book Why Not Me? (which Ryan got me for Christmas) Listening to? Ryan: Drake, Future, Wale, Rick Ross Kayla: A little bit of everything, as always but I’m really into Sia’s new stuff right now! Dreaming of? Ryan: Retirement (always) Kayla: Spring! I’m sick of this… View Post

Happy Ryday! I know, I know, it has been a while since Ryan has posted on the blog! But he’s back and ready to answer some great holiday themed questions for Guys Behind the Blog! For those of you who don’t know about this link up, it is hosted by Betsy at Heavens to Betsy and each month she comes up with a list of questions for her husband to answer on her blog. Here are the questions for December and Ryan’s answers! 1. What’s on your Christmas list this year? I don’t really have anything on my list this year. Each year it gets harder to think of things. If I really want something, I typically just go and buy it for myself during the year. The only things I could throw on a list are too expensive to be asking for from anyone else! Since I just bought a house I could use more expensive items like furniture. I like to get creative with my gifts to others and don’t like being given a list. I prefer force others to do the same by not supplying any type of list! Good luck Kayla. 2. Did you believe in Santa as a child? Do you have any funny… View Post

Welcome back to Rydays! Finally, Ryan has stopped being so busy and agreed to answer more questions for the Guys Behind the Blog linkup. Last month, we participated in the September  edition of Guys Behind the Blog. For those of you who don’t know about this link up, it is hosted by Betsy at Heavens to Betsy and each month she comes up with a list of questions for her husband to answer on her blog. Here are the questions for October and Ryan’s answers! 1. We’re headed into fall, which means cooler temps for most of us…are you a warm weather or cold weather kind of guy? I prefer warm weather. There is nothing worse than cold windy days and having to wait your car to warm up in the morning. Especially since I am usually up before the sun. The coldest I’d like it to get is around 50 degrees. I like the look of fall clothing and not having to wear more than a light jacket or hoodie. I would prefer to live where it is warm year round (without humidity) 2. What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever worn? Last year’s Halloween with Kayla. I went all out. We were Maggie and Merle from one of my… View Post

You’re in for a treat! Today I’m bringing you this week’s #Ryday post a day early! Just a heads up… I’m gonna get a little sentimental. You might have read Ryan’s “short version” of how we met a few weeks ago on the blog, but this week I wanted to take the opportunity to really dive into the details of how we actually came to know (and love!) each other. I started thinking about this after I saw the MTV show Are You the One? for the first time. If you’ve never heard of the show, there are 20 beautiful humans who are sent to a tropical destination. There are 10 girls and 10 guys. The whole point of the show is to figure out who their perfect match is. It’s especially entertaining as a viewer because MTV has this awesome game where you can play along and submit who you think are the perfect matches. Another bonus to the game is that if you guess correctly and win the episode, you will be entered for a chance to win a trip for 2 to HAWAII. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been just dying for a tropical vacation. It would… View Post

This week’s Ryday is another edition of The Guys Behind the Blog. Last month, Ryan participated in the August edition of Guys Behind the Blog. For those of you who don’t know about this link up, it is hosted by Betsy at Heavens to Betsy. Each month, she comes up with a list of questions and has her husband answer them on her blog. Here are the questions for September and Ryan’s answers! The Guys Behind the Blog: September Edition 1. What’s the silliest thing you and your significant other have needed to compromise on? We compromised that I would not be paid for “RYDAYS” 😛 2. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what 3 must haves would you bring with you? Besides Kayla? 1. iPad (w/ 4G duh) 2. Sunblock & Aloe (because I’m pale) 3. A Wilson Volleyball 3. Talents aside, what is your dream job? Debate on First Take along side Skip Bayless & Steven A Smith. Note from Kayla: If you don’t know what First Take is, it’s a sports talkshow! 4. What are three things on your bucket list? Well, if you’ve been following Rydays for a while, you’d know that I shared my entire bucket list before! Three highlights would have… View Post
