Hubby’s Top 10 {Appreciation Post}

posted by Julie Evink on September 12, 2013

 Hubby’s Top Ten ~ The hubs sat down and picked out his top ten recipes off of Julie’s Eats & Treats! Have you tried them yet?

Hubby's Top 10 Fave Recipe from Julie's Eats & Treat ~ Man Approved!

Today I’m joining up with a bunch of other fellow bloggers to do a little {Appreciation} post for my hubs! I couldn’t resist joining this group and this opportunity as my hubs truly supports me in every way!

Here’s a little background for you on me and the hubs ~ We met through our Aunts (They work together) on a blind date. They decided we would make a great couple and I remember getting a phone call asking for permission to give out my phone number to this guy. I think my response was something like, “Sure why not? Nothing else has worked yet!” Well about a couple weeks later he called and asked me for a date…he was informed that he couldn’t call for two weeks because I was busy on work trips and stuff! Poor guy! Our first date was a quiet one, in fact so quiet that I was relieved when we went to the movie and I didn’t have to talk the whole time and peeps I LOVE to talk! I told my mom I wasn’t sure after our first date because he was soooo shy! She informed me to give him another chance because my Grandpa & Grandma had a similar experience. I’m sure glad I listened to my mother on this one! He’s come out of his shell a LOT and I wouldn’t ever guess he was the quiet guy that stole my heart!

Now 5 years later we are married and have our adorable little Miss K. He works, I work, we’re remodeling a house, I’m blogging and we are enjoying life! Well most of the time 🙂 It’s crazy, but it’s our crazy and we seem to love it! He is my rock, he talks me off the ledge when I’m close to falling over, celebrates with me everytime I get ubber excited about a blog milestone and of course taste tests all my concoctions! If you are wondering why you don’t see more veggies, blame him. If you are wondering why there isn’t a lot of chocolate on this blog well he’s the reason and me as I’m allergic!

Now onto my mini interview with my main squeeze of a hunk!


  • What is your significant other’s favorite blog called? Huh? There’s other blogs?
  • What is their favorite prop? One thing? You use so much stuff in those pictures how can I pick one thing?
  • What is the weirdest thing you have seen your spouse do for a blog post? Walking through Wal-Mart taking pictures and making a fool out of herself.
  • If you could have your own blog what would you call it?  Jason’s DIY aka Stuff my wife finds on Pinterest
  • What do you do for a living and what are your hobbies? I own a construction business with my brother and my wife makes me remodel our house for my hobby!

Here are his top 10 FAVORITES off the blog! Obviously he didn’t care what my pictures looked like on some of these so take them for what they are worth, not much. BUT he loves them so check them out!

    • Julie Evink

      That hair is finally starting to lay down…but now we are in the little pony tail on top of the head like Pebbles…it’s adorable. And I figure that’d be a good Halloween costume!

  • Amy @Very Culinary

    Oh wow, a blind date that ended with major success. I love it. And love his top 10 foods. YUM.

    • Julie Evink

      I would have never dreamed this is how I’d meet my hubby that’s for sure! Funny thing is our best friends met the same way 🙂

    • Julie Evink

      Awww Tanya I want to meet all of you so bad too! If there just wasn’t so many states in between us! And yes, he can makes stuff but if he actually does it…that’s another story!

      Aww thanks Jen! Funny thing is that my Mom swears she looks like my baby pics!
