1. What is your must-have gadget? submitted by Flying High With My Flyboy
Not sure what you're referring to when you say gadget... but I  must have my cellphone with me wherever I go. I hate going somewhere and accidentally leaving it at home, or forget to charge it. It will drive me crazy all day.

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
It's a lot different. I thought I would go to college and have some kind of career before I got married. I never really dreamed I'd get married. LOL. And here I am, married almost 3 years at the ripe old age of 25. 

3. What is your favorite chocolate recipe?  submitted by Our First Deployment
I have to pick one? Are you crazy? I love chocolate pretty much in any form. Today I enjoyed some chocolate ice cream with Almonds mixed in. It was divine. I guess I'd have to say my favorite recipe, would be for German chocolate cake.

4. How do you deal with military life when it gets to be [too] much or [too] hard? submitted by Combat Boots And Pointe Shoes
The only time being a military wife has been hard was while Jeremy was deployed. It's frustrating when J has drill when I have other plans. And when his two-week drill comes up. {Next month} I deal by reading. It's my answer for everything. LOL. I can get lost in a book for hours, sometimes days. It helps me to cope, by taking my mind off of all my worries or frustrations.

5. What piece of advice would you give a new Military spouse facing their first deployment?  submitted by The Albrecht Squad
 Oh My-lanta, I don't know! 
  • Pray! I did a lot of praying.  
  • Get involved in your FRG if you have one. If there isn't an FRG, don't lose track of your non-military friends. Even if they have no idea what you're going through, they can still be supportive. 
  • Find a hobby. Idle minds can be bad. You could become depressed or worry so much, you'll make yourself sick.
  • It will be OK. Your spouse loves what he/she is doing, otherwise they wouldn't be doing it. Don't complain to your spouse about your problems. He/She will have enough to worry about wherever they are.
  • Don't assume the worst. Be as positive for your soldier as you can possibly be.

Happy Birthday to my beautiful Mama! I love you Mama! :) Hope you have a beautiful and blessed birthday!

Oooh, love your post. I put down chocolate cake too for my answer to #3. I'm new to the military life, and kinda nervous about deployments, so #5 was great. Thanks :)

You answers to number 5 were great! It is so easy for us military wives to start complaining to our hubbies who are in a much worse environement. We must remember they need to stay focused and we must stay positive! Thank you!
