an interview with my fiance.

June 5, 2014

So one of my new favorite blogs I've been reading more and more is Amanda at Peaches in Missouri.  She is the sweetest, she is a newlywed, and we've encouraged each other over the past couple of months during weight loss journies.  So when I saw the post she did interviewing her husband, I knew I had to steal it.  Thanks Amanda for letting me be a copycat today!

this should be good... 

I swear to you, this is how the interview started:

Me:  I'm going to do a blog post where I interview you.
Ben:  okay, sounds good.  (wasn't planning on starting immediately.)

Me:  So, Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant.
Ben:  I.Don't.Care.  Was that my first interview question?  Because if so, put in quotes, "I.Don't.Care."

Me: What is the name of my blog?
Ben:  uhhhhh GOD it's not The Meighan B anymore is it?  Is it The Meighan B?  Damnit.  I don't know.

Me:  It's 'The Meighan Project!'
Ben:  isn't that what I said?  Right?  I was going to say The Meighan B Project, but I said The Meighan Project.  Right?  That's what I said!

Me: What do I typically write about?

Ben:  ...your life, your struggles, and your weight loss.  Your life experience with it.  Probably some fashion design stuff every now and then. A little fashion sense... 

Me: What is the biggest change you've noticed about me since my weight loss surgery?
Ben:  Umm.  I would have to say your confidence in yourself and your body.

Me:  Aww that's a sweet answer.
Ben:  Well, I can tell you are willing to try new things and have more confidence.  And it definitely shows.

Me: What’s a popular fashion item for women right now?
Ben:  Clogs.  The eff if I know.  End quote.

Me: *dying laughing*

Me: Why do women go to the bathroom together?
Ben:  Petty gossip.

Me: What do you know about Pinterest?
Ben:  It's categorized pictures of nonsense.

Me: If you could have any job what would it be?
Ben:  *repeats the question several times*  Uh, probably a super hero.  With a cape.  And a cawl.

Me:  What would your super power be?
Ben:  *thinking* My super power would be... I don't know, that's a tough question.  Um.  Mindblowing.

Me:  Mindblowing?  That's not a super power...
Ben:  yeah.  I'd blow your mind.  AND, I'd control chickens.  Only chickens.  Kind of like ant man, but chicken man.  Wait, change chickens to penguins.  End quote.

Me: What’s the best place to shop for women?
Ben:  I'd probably say Ross Dress for Less.

Me: Like a woman's favorite store.
Ben:  a jewelry store.

Me: What does YOLO stand for?
Ben:  Yolo?  You Only Live Once.  I know that from Katelyn.  (my teenage cousin)

Me: What about OOTD?
Ben:  Out On The Dock.  Eff if I know.

Me: What is our favorite thing to do together?
Ben:  I would have to say... vacationing together.

Me: What do I do when I’m home alone?
Ben:  Blog, schoolwork, smut.  Probably torture the cat... 

Me: And what do you do when you’re home alone?
Ben:  Tablet, TV, video games.  I draw.  I just made that up.

Me: What is my favorite activity?
Ben:  I would say either social media, probably social media, or mani/pedi's.  (he knows me well.)

Me: What do women keep in their purse?
Ben: Uh, er... uh. Feminine hygiene products?  Their wallet.  Aaaand... makeup and lipstick stuff.

Me: What’s my favorite accessory?
Ben:  Your Coach handbag and your engagement ring.  Right?  Are those accessories?

Me: What celebrity would you let me have a free pass with?
Ben:  Justin Bieber.  So I wouldn't have to worry.  You'd definitely come back to me.  I'd be too worried about Channing Tatum or Justin Timberlake.  Maybe even 2Chainz.

Me: What celebrity would you like to have a free pass with?
Ben:  Oh, Jesus.  I don't know, there's so many.  Is that off the record?  Right now?  Right now... *thinking*  *sigh*  I would have to say Katy Perry or Eva Green.  Maybe Olivia Wilde.

Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a makeup item?
Ben:  $1.25.  Or $3.50.

Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a dress?
Ben:  Maybe about $200 for a nice, nice dress.  Something formal.

Me: What’s my favorite TV show?
Ben:  New Girl.  All the reality TV shows are all up in there together.  And Friends.

Me: Who is a current celebrity “it” couple? 
Ben:  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  Or Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber.

Me: Anything else you’d like to say?
Ben:  What's the question?

Me:  The question is 'is there anything else you'd like to say?"
Ben:  I'll be your huckleberry.  And I'm Batman.

THIS, my friends, is one of the many, many, many reasons I love this man.
He has me laughing and keeps things interesting all the time.
I hope you enjoyed the little glimpse into conversations I have with my fiance on a daily basis!
Happy Thursday!


  1. ahahahahahaha. I'm dying laughing that he'd let you go with Justin Bieber so he wouldn't have to worry. Bless his sweet heart. 2Chainz. Dear lord. hahahahaha.

  2. That is HYSTERICAL!!! It is too early to have a belly ache from laughing so hard :P

  3. Dying. I'm dying. And I'm pretty sure I scared the fur off my cats from laughing so loud. This is so amazing! We're gonna have to find another set of fun questions and do a follow up interview one day!

  4. haha that is awesome! The Justin Bieber answer is definitely one of the best responses ever! Can't wait to see you in some clogs next happy hour :)

  5. This is hilarious! Your man is such a fashionista.

  6. This is precious! Make sure you keep this so when you actually spend $200 on a dress he can't get mad :)

  7. I am so behind on blog reading today! This is hilarious!!! I am dying. I needed a good laugh this afternoon, so thanks Ben!

    And um, are you sporting clogs? Why else would he say that? LOL

  8. Funny!! Fun post. I'd be interested to see if my husband would so that.

  9. I can't even tell you how much I laughed at this. I thought about making my brother do it, but I'm sure he would refuse haha
