Ten Questions with Kip.

You asked some questions, so here are some answers. Well, really just Ginny and Rachel asked, but I feel like probably many of you have the same questions. And you get an added instagram photo as a bonus because it's one of my favorites. #happykids

1. How tall is he?
Kip says 5'11" and a half. (I love his honesty because of this article, and because I'm working really hard on standing up straight with all of my 72".)

2. What would he eat if he knew it was his last meal?
Probably a lot of things. But maybe fried chicken.

3. Professional or amateur arborist? Favorite tree?
Professional - his degree from K-State is Park Management and Conservation. Favorite tree - Burr Oak

4. What magazines/papers does he subscribe to?
American Hunter and professional magazines (see #3)

5. Favorite Taylor Swift song?
"Whatever is not playing right now."
Follow-up from Vic: If you could only listen to one radio station, what would it be? And why? 
106.9 - Country Legends. (We seriously JAMMED to the country from the 1980s and 1990s with my mom last weekend. Thanks Sirius!)

6. Beverage of choice (other than $2 domestic pours)?
Coffee. Black coffee. (He likes to gulp it so he normally puts one ice cube in it so it cools faster.)

7. Why doesn't he like the Olympics?
Too boring. (We watched Undefeated instead on Friday night. Recommended for anyone who likes football, city kids or Friday Night Lights.)

8. Favorite thing Victoria makes or bakes?
"Chicken tamale casserole and the peanut butter oatmeal cookies from my birthday. The sugar cookies are good - I've just had so many at this point." 

9. How did you meet?
Our friends Tara & Tom - the three of them work together. The important detail from this first meeting is we ate at THE CIGAR BOX. Lounge singer and all. 

10. What else can he make from rope?
He can splice rope. (I think that means anything.)

Got more questions? Leave them in the comments. It will give me something to talk about on this little blog. Also, in the spirit of lovey-dovey blog posts, be sure to click over and download the awesome Valentine printables Rachel made at RV Parties. I may be using them as well!

    1. I'm finding there are certain sports he likes way more (and less!). We watched a lot of downhill and snowboarding last night!

  2. He has to like the biatholon right?

    Questions: Would you still fancy Victoria if she decided to be a vegan? What surprises you most about Victoria? What is your second favorite thing about her? How excited are you to meet me?

    1. Why would Victoria ever become a vegan? You are thorough or crazy.

    2. She is crazy. Kip's answer was so diplomatic like, well, that's not going to happen.

  3. How did you feel about the ending of Undefeated? He said he wanted to spend more time with his kids, but then he took a job at coaching at the high school his kids would attend at some point in the future, so???

    1. I've done some googling and the endings are not all happy at all. But it was way REAL LIFE in a lot of parts.

  4. He is adorable! Just warn him that at some point in his future, a crazy woman (Rachel's mom) will feel compelled to show up and give him a big ol hug! I was in KC at the end of January and thought about seeing if you guys wanted to meet for dinner.....but I decided that was a bit crazy. He hasnt even met Rach yet! I always love reading your blog!

  7. Advice from another tall lady, don't slouch. They always tell us this and we never listen - I feel I'm getting shorter already!

    Also, don't worry about wearing heels. I occasionally rock a pair that tower me over Bob and it's cool - just don't do it on your wedding day :)
