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

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 your must have gadget? submitted by Flying High With My Flyboy
It has to be my slow cooker. I looove that thing and cook in it all the time. I’m looking to get a second smaller one for different recipes so I can use two at once! LOL

2. How does your adulthood compare to what you imagined it would be like when you were a little kid? submitted by L to the Third
When I was a little kid, I thought I’d be a veterinarian/pediatrician/princess combination. My husband and I would eat marshmallows for dinner and we’d teleport to tropical places and ride our horses into town. We’d sleep on clouds (actual clouds… remember, I was a kid) and have not a care in the world. Uh… yeah. That sure came true.

3. What is your favorite chocolate recipe?  submitted by Our First Deployment
Hands-down, it’s my Cathedral Cookie recipe. I generally only make it for Christmas.

4. How do you deal with military life when it gets to be to much or to hard? submitted by Combat Boots And Pointe Shoes
I try to stay busy and hang out with friends. I also try to do things and relax.

5. What piece of advice would you give a new Military spouse facing their first deployment?  submitted by The Albrecht Squad
You will have good days and you will have bad days. You will have days you feel fantastic for being so independent and days where you will bawl your eyes out while wishing you could just let the earth swallow you. It’s all normal. Let yourself feel bad at times, but don’t let it consume you. Live your life while your spouse is gone. Enjoy the things you will learn. Stay strong.

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. I do love the slow cooker, but I always forget that it’s there sometimes. It’s like that favorite pair of shoes that you buy but rarely ever wear and when you put them on again, you’re like WHY DON’T I WEAR YOU ALL THE TIME!! That’s how I feel about my slow cooker! Looking forward to next Friday!! 🙂

  2. The future your childhood self thought up sounds amazing. I wonder if I could convince Chris to eat marshmallows for dinner… 🙂

    And I’m planning to get a small slow cooker too! They’re awesome for keeping dips warm.

  4. You mean we aren’t supposed to replace meals with marshmallows? Apparently I’m going about this whole adulthood thing the wrong way! 🙂

  5. I didn’t even THINK of my slow cooker as a gadget — I was thinking “electronics” the whole time! It’s just as indispensable in my house as my iPhone! Especially on drill days!

  6. Your imaginary life sounds so dreamy! 🙂 I also love our slow cooker, too! Now, I just need a deep freeze so I can freeze those homemade soups and slow cooked meals. 🙂

  7. I keep reading the Friday-Fill Ins, on your blog and other blogs, and never participate. I’m such a lurker. Anyway, I really enjoyed this weeks questions and reading the different answers. I think next week I’ll join in! 🙂

  8. I love your Friday Fill Ins and have participated twice. I’m trying to figure out how to “FOLLOW” your blog…I’m new to blogging in general and I’m trying to figure it all out. I know how to “FOLLOW” blogs that have the button to follow, but I can’t seem to find yours 🙂 I love your writing and want to keep up!

  9. Blue,

    You can follow me by using an RSS feeder like Google Reader or just click on “email subscription” on the right hand column of my blog. It’ll send you an email every time I blog.
