I didn't get to participate in last week's Mil-Spouse Friday, so I decided to just combine lat week's and this week's. Hope no one minds.
If you're a Mil-Spouse (military husband/wife) or if you just like to answer some of the questions, feel free to join in every friday! I'm sure Wifey at Wife of a Sailor would love to have you! So, visit her blog, link up and be sure to leave a comment!
Fill-In #48:1. Does your Significant Other read your blog? Why is this a good or a bad thing? submitted by Mrs. Alana’s Miscellany
No. I doubt if he's ever read it to be honest. LOL. I don't think he'd even know how to find it if he wanted to read it. And he'd probably be irritated at some of the stuff I write about him. Haha!
2. What is one item in your house that holds the most sentimental value and why? submitted by The Albrecht Squad
Wow, that's a tough one. I have lots of different items that mean more to me because of who gave them to me. I have Simba (a stuffed lion I've had since I was 7) that I got for Christmas when I was little. Photos that, in some cases, are irreplaceable. Cooter, the stuffed animal from BABW that J gave me on our first Christmas together. I think if there were a fire, I'd grab Simba, Cooter and my Passport (holds all of my photos).
3. When it comes to water fun in the summer do you prefer the beach, the pool, a lake, or the sprinklers? submitted by The Turvo Times
I really like the beach, but I can only handle so much heat. I prefer the pool. I can see the bottom and it doesn't freak me out when I can't touch bottom. lol.
4. What is the one special thing that you do for yourself to get you through the first week of a deployment/separation? submitted by A Creed and a Psalm
I honestly don't even remember the first week of J's deployment. LOL. I think I was just too miserable. J will be going away again for schooling next month, so I'll probably do something special for myself then.
5. What is your biggest guilty pleasure website? submitted by Christine’s Little Blog
I love reading crafting blogs, does that count? Also, People of Wal-mart and Goodreads.com.
2. Is there anything you do to supplement your family's income? submitted by Our Life, One Adventure at a Time
1. If you could have a private concert with any singer, who would it be? submitted by An Air Force Wife's Blog
George Strait. Hands down! :)
Not at the moment. But hopefully soon, I'll be getting at least a part-time job.
I haven't had any kids yet.
4. Have you ever won a blog giveaway? If so what did you win? submitted by Mrs. O's Life
Yes! I won a giveaway on my friend Holly's co-blog, The Mom-tage during a chat with an author. I won a Bible (Which I gave to J) and the publisher included 2 other books as well! And the other giveaway I won, was on Chantal's Blog, B + C & Baby (Which used to be, A Blog A Day While You're Away, but her Hubby is home now!). I won another book, Alice Bliss.
5. If I looked into your refrigerator right now, what would I find? submitted by Married to the Army
I thought it would just be easier to take a few pics instead of trying to remember everything in the fridge. LOL. It also gave me a great excuse to throw out the 11-day-old bucket of fried chicken from the 3rd of July...
