Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.
MilSpouses who are participating in Secret Santa… I have just 10 people who have not sent their gifts yet. These need to be in the mail NOW. Please remember to email me at wifeofasailor(at)gmail(dot)com as soon as you send your package out. If you have not RECEIVED your gift by 23DEC, please let me know and I’ll see what’s going on. Hope you are all enjoying it!
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!
This week’s questions are:
1. What is the best gift you have ever received or given? from Jessica Lynn Writes
I have no idean overall. My best two I’ve given this year are the Nook to Huzzy (yes, he got it back in September), which he is LOVING underway since he doesn’t have to take books with him that take up tons of space and I gave my mom a quilted double blue star from Bluebird Crafting. She cried when she opened it. She had no idea what a blue star mother was and she was proud that she has two children in the service (both my husband and I).
2. Do you celebrate holidays differently when your loved one is deployed/gone or do you keep tradition? from The Albrecht Squad
I didn’t last year because I spent it with my mom and brother… it was just like Christmases before Huzzy. This year, yes. I’m hanging out with friends so it’ll be entirely different. But Huzzy and I will celebrate it when he returns.
3. If you celebrate Christmas, do you put an angel, star or something else on the top of your tree?
I have an angel. An angel with gold wings and a pink dress. I bought it for my tree the first year I was on my own. That was nearly 10 years ago and she’s moved cross-country with me.
4. What are your three favorite websites?
Let’s see… Google, Twitter and Facebook. That’s sad, isn’t it?
5. On your man do you prefer… boxers, briefs or boxer briefs? Or commando? (yeah, I’m starting to get desperate for questions!)?
Boxer briefs! I find them extremely sexy!
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.
