Happy Birthday Chris! | The Guy Behind the Blog

Just stopping by to wish my wonderful husband, Chris, a super happy birthday!  We will be spending the day as a family and going out to dinner with his parents tonight to celebrate not only Chris' birthday but also his dad's.  

from Chris' birthday last year

And since today is Chris' birthday, I thought it would be the perfect day to share a little more about Chris for The Guys Behind the Blog link-up.  

1. What's on your Christmas list this year?
The big gift on my list this year is a remote starter for my car. I leave for work very early in the morning and having my car warmed up when I go outside will be very convenient.  Also, when I get off the train on cold days I can also save time by having the car already warmed up by the time I get to it.  Other things on the list are smaller items like iPhone headphones, socks, etc.

2. Did you believe in Santa as a child? Do you have any funny Santa stories?
I did believe in Santa and I'm embarrassed to say that the whole Santa isn't real thing was ruined by my younger brother who was 2 years younger than me and who found out at school and then told me.   I was at the point where I was having serious questions about the validity of Santa, but my brother put those questions to rest.

3. What is a Christmas tradition you hope to pass on someday?
The Christmas tradition that I hope to pass on is doing the advent calendar because I think it's a great build up to Christmas day and even when Noah is older we can find fun and unique items to put in the calendar to count down to Christmas.

4. Do you open presents on Christmas morning or a different time?
Christmas morning is when I open presents, unless I'm seeing people that I won't see at all on Christmas, then I make an exception.

5. What is your favorite Christmas song?  Movie?
My favorite Christmas song is Jingle Bells because it's such a classic.  My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story.  I've watched it literally every year since I can remember.


  1. Fun to read!

  2. Poor guy!!!! Santa as ruined by his brother!! Happy birthday Chris!!! I hope your day is the best!!

  3. There's such a thing as a remote car starter?! Mind blown ;) Ugh, I'd be devastated if my younger brother knew the business about anything before me, he's 10 years younger haha! Happy Birthday/NYE!

  4. What a perfect time for Guys Behind the Blog! I hope Chris had an amazing birthday. Nathan had remote start on one of his trucks once and it was amazing!! Especially in the middle of winter and peak of summer! We are hoping to implement the Advent in 2016 too! A Christmas Story is a classic and Christmas Eve tradition for us. I love that it’s on a 24 hour marathon Christmas Eve! And I am hoping like crazy that some kid at school doesn't ruin Santa for Mason!
