MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #10

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In
(please feel free to use this!)

Wow! I can’t believe this is our 10th MFF!

I love learning more about my fellow MilSpouse bloggers. So I created a weekly meme. Each week, I’ll post a list of questions on Thursday (so you can have your blog ready on Friday). Come back here on Friday (like today!) and enter your blog post into Mr. Linky below so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs. Please leave a comment too! And please feel free to use the button above!

(Please forgive me if I can’t get to visit everyone’s blogs the next few weeks. I am having a hard time accessing my own blog from the Army Internet!)

I was going to feature one question suggested by MFF participants each week, but since you all came up with such great questions last week, I’m going to have to do more than one a week! This week’s questions are:

1. What secret indulgence do you act on while your spouse is away? (from Devil Dog Darling)
Um, not getting dressed and watching pointless TV (like Toddlers and Tiaras… what a trainwreck that I can’t stay away from!). All. Day. Long.

2. If you were a spice, what would you be? (from New Girl On Post)
I would have to say mint. It’s refreshing and clean… and it goes great with chocolate!

3. Where do you go for support when your significant other is deployed? (from Texas Meets Washington)
I would have to say my Twitter friends. They are mostly MilSpouses and are more of a support network than I have in real life.

4. What is the oldest thing you own? (from A Troop’s Girl)
It would have to be the diamond necklace my grandma gave me. Not the necklace, but the diamond. It was the diamond from my great-great aunt’s engagement ring. I was originally going to wear it for my wedding, but after my dad died, I ended up wearing his favorite ring that I had made into a necklace.

5. How did you vision your future pre-military? (from Daddy’s Duty)
Not this, for sure! I never wanted to marry a military man. I wanted the typical American house with my husband working 8-5 and having weekends off. I was hoping (still am) that when we had kids, I could either work part-time or as a full-time stay-at-home mom. We’d have horses (not really possible as a military family), grow up in a small-ish town where everyone knew everyone and you graduated with the kids you went to kindergarten with.

And I sure as HECK never, ever thought in a million years that I’d ever be in the military myself. Never. People I grew up with still don’t believe it.

Now, I am imagining all the possibilities our future kids will have to see the world and learn the importance of honor and duty.

Please don’t forget to add your blog link to Mr. Linky below by clicking on it. But also if you are not participating in MilSpouse Friday Fill-In this week, please do not put your link on there… I will remove it. It is unfair to others who do participate.

  1. Don’t be so sure on the not being able to have horses front. We know one couple in DH’s squadron who has horses, and I know at least one more horse-owning military family online. 😉

  2. Heh, I’m with Athena. I stay in my pj’s until I have to change to go somewhere… and mindless tv is another indulgence of mine, for sure.

  3. I’ll third (or fourth) the vote for mindless tv… there’s nothing better than a boring Sunday being brightened by an unexpected Real Housewives marathon on Bravo 🙂

  4. I don’t know if I haven’t done enough stalking, but I didn’t realize you were also in the military! What do you do and how I can I get your job- staying at home watching Toddlers In Tiaras sounds like a slice of heaven.

  5. Same here, only it’s workout clothes for me, instead of pj’s. You know, in case I accidently trip and fall and get some exercise. Hope springs eternal!

  6. Oh, I wish I could enjoy the taste of chocolate and mint together, but I just hated it. In fact, OccDoc always gets a scoop of chocolate mint ice cream on the top of his cone to keep me away from it. He’s mean.

  7. I’m with you on never thinking that I’d marry a military man. Needless to say, my family was SHOCKED, lol.

  8. Great questions this week! #1 is SO me. Mindless TV shows are evil!!! Such a time suck, but I can never stop watching the stupid marathons, haha 🙂

  9. First time Fill-In participant here! And Toddlers and Tiaras is one of my indulgences, too. (Didn’t think of that when I was writing my answers, though.)

  11. I watch tons of trashy tv while the hubs is gone! I try and watch it while he is home, but he just ends up making fun of it, so I DVR it until he has drill or whatever.
