2 People

On our honeymoon! (2009)

This blog is about living life with 2 dogs, 2 people in a 1 bedroom apartment.  There will be rants, recipes, suggestions, questions, and reports of all different things on this blog.  We like LOVE food and will often review the places where we eat.  Our dogs, Molly and Sam live with us and are a handful.  Because of this there will probably be a good many posts regarding dogs and life with dogs.  It should be funny and we are open to all comments and suggestions.  Thanks for checking us out.

Here is a brief questionnaire that will help you learn a little more about us… to be completed very soon! sorry for the delay!

WAFFLES OR PANCAKES?

Kyle: That’s a tough one, I love a good waffle but I have to say overall I prefer pancakes.  In my opinion, other than homemade the two best varieties are IHOP pancakes and McDonalds Hotcakes…I know it’s weird.

Kaleigh: McDonalds? Gross! Absolutely PANCAKES! No contest. I love them in all different flavors and with all kinds of toppings!

WHERE WERE YOU BORN?

Kyle: I was born in Huntington Beach, CA although my family only lived there for 2 years before moving to CO.  So I feel like CO is my home and it is all I remember.  I love the mountains and having four distinct seasons and even though I would eventually like to live somewhere else for a while CO will always be my home.

Kaleigh: Colorado Springs. I’m a tried and true native, baby! It’s Coloradical!

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE CHILDHOOD TOY?

Kyle: Hands down my favorite toy as a kid was LEGO’s.  In fact even now my favorite toy is LEGO’s.  If we had extra money to spend then I would buy some new Star Wars LEGO’s right now.

Kaleigh: Cabbage Patch bald baby (I got this on my 1st birthday and actually still have it) and my tricycle. I think these two things reflect my loving, nurturing side as well as my tom-boyish tendencies.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEAL?

Kyle: Well my favorite meal used to be chili and rice with Hormel Chili and white rice, sour cream and cheddar cheese.  That was of course until I married Kaleigh and found out that its one can of Hormel Chili has more sodium and fake ingredients then my entire day’s of meals.  That said I still love chili and rice but I’m still searching for a new favorite meal although a good batch of fish and chips is hard to beat currently…

Kaleigh: For me it is so ridiculously hard to pick just one meal. I’m going to list the best meal I’ve had in a long time instead. That would be bangers and mash with St. Louis Gueuze followed by beignets stuffed with Nutella, cinnamon and vanilla cream.

IF YOU COULD SPEND A DAY WITH ANYONE THAT HAS EVER LIVED, WHO WOULD IT BE?

Kyle: Personally I would really like to sit down and talk with Sir Winston Churchill.

Kaleigh: At the risk of sounding to “church-y” I am going to say Jesus. He’s got a lot of knowledge and I’ve got a lot to learn.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SANDWICH SPREAD?

Kyle: I’ve got to go with peanut butter…you can match it with anything and it still tastes good.  Plus it comes in two varieties, crunchy and smooth.

Kaleigh: A couple years ago, I think I would say peanut butter. But I am currently addicted to Nutella. That stuff is truly ‘crack’ for a gal who’s got a sweet tooth.

DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY…

Kyle: Get up, eat pancakes, go for a ride, spend the rest of the day with my wife doing whatever (I really enjoy hunting through antique shops or thrift stores for cool finds with Kaleigh), have a great dinner and fall asleep watching Seinfeld.

Kaleigh: I don’t have any specific events but rather if I get to relax, read, make a crafty thing, eat good food, belly laugh, love and get kisses from Kyle, then it’s a wonderful day for me! And if it so happens to take place by the beach or in the mountains, then that is just fine by me too!

HAVE YOU EVER BROKE ANY BONES?

Kyle: NO!! Although since I have started racing bikes I feel like a collarbone break is inevitable and all of my finger-crossing and knocking on wood will have no influence on that.

Kaleigh: Yes, two. I have broken a bone (name?) on the top of my hand racing my brother up the stairs and bonking it on the banister and I have broken my talus bone in my foot in a scary car accident while traveling with my future husband.

TOP 3 FAVORITE BOOKS?

Kyle: I feel like my favorite books change all the time, I’ve read a lot and can’t remember all the books that I have read but currently as far as I can tell my favorite three in no particular order are…

1. All 3 Lord of the Rings books

2. The Sun Also Rises—Hemingway

3. The Old Testament of the Bible—I am currently rediscovering all the intrigue and drama that is the Old Testament.

Kaleigh: In no particular order: Harriet the Spy- as a kid I wanted to be her so bad! I even got my own notebook, compiled random household items (magnifying glass, mini flashlight, etc.) and tried spying in my neighborhood. P.S. I didn’t go well. I didn’t see a darn thing.

In Defense of Food- I went to school for nutrition and when I read this about a year after graduating I felt like dunce. This was the first political-food related book that really opened my eyes to how we eat as Americans and our whole food system. Deep down all this information was what I always knew to be true, but in college I wasn’t taught a lick of the lobbying and media that is so ingrained in our daily choices. Completely eye-opening.

Bible- I don’t care who you are, if you believe in God, Jesus, or not. This book has it all: murder, sex, betrayal, war, adventure and most importantly love. No matter how many times you open it up, it tells you exactly what you need to hear.


WHAT IS THE CRAZIEST THING YOU HAVE EVER EATEN?

Kyle: Squid Ink Pasta.  It’s not that crazy and in fact didn’t taste any different, but it did look like a whole bunch of blue veins.

Kaleigh: Fried alligator. I guess that’s not too crazy.

HOW TO YOU TAKE YOUR COFFEE?

Kyle: Straight up BLACK!  Why mess around with something that is great on its own.  Plus everyone obviously thinks you are really tough when they see you drinking BLACK coffee!

Kaleigh: I used to work at a coffee shop and before that time, I NEVER drank coffee. Now I believe I have become a bit of a coffee snob. I love any coffee or espresso drink so what I have will be whatever mood strikes me but my go-to’s are either a regular cuppa joe with a bit o’ cream or Americano with cream.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PET?

Kyle: A penguin and a kangaroo.  And add a pygmy goat for good measure…

Kaleigh: Elefante or tigre. I’ll take both please!
