I'm a twenty-nine year old Army wife currently living near a large Army post. I have an unhealthy obsession with Dr. Pepper, the Internet, cloth diapers, and ridiculous TV shows. I'm a stay at home mom to two beautiful daughters, AJ and Amelia. We also have a 6 year old beagle named Abby who is as dumb as a box of rocks.

Friday Fill-In

I am seeing lots of people doing this today, and I have some time on my hands this afternoon while AJ naps, so here goes!
1. How did you and your spouse/significant other meet?
We met during our junior year of high school at a mutual friend's going-away party. The rest, as they say, is history. Not really, but its a super long story and a post for another day.

2. What is the best thing about being a MilSpouse?
The friends I have met all over the country. We have moved 4 times in the past 3 years and I honestly wouldn't change that for the world, because with each move I met a new life-changing friend. Secondly, but just as important:
the pride that I have in my husband and what he does. The guaranteed paycheck doesn't hurt either. ;)

3. What is the hardest thing about being a MilSpouse?
Moving. Deployments. Being far from "home." Not having control over anything. Never being able to make definite plans.

4. What is your favorite dish?
Usually, fajitas are my go-to dish. I make them at home, I order them when we go out. I love them. Well, today I would have to say something with massive amounts of carbs. I'm really missing the paleo diet's lack of bread and pasta today.

5. If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?
I want people in general to be more aware. I think our generation tends to walk around with either their head in the clouds or the sand. To me it seems as if the world is going to hell in a handbasket and no one cares! Oil has been leaking into our oceans for 67 days. Afghanistan has officially become the U.S.'s longest war. We have surpassed the 4,000 mark for U.S. casualties in Iraq and 1,000 in Afghanistan. We continue to pollute our air, water and land. For what? Wake up people! Take the earbuds out of your ears and look around you. This is not going to be here forever!

Wow. Small rant there. I just think there is so much change that we're capable of that people need a wake-up call to start doing something about it! Use a cloth grocery bag. Buy local. Walk to work.

**I forgot to link back to Wife of a Sailor, so I'm adding the link now!


  1. I would love to hear more about how you met... I love love stories of all kinds!

    Thanks for participating and hope to see you next week!

  2. Thanks for organizing the meme! I think its going to be fun!

    I promise, I will post the long story about how we met as a separate blog entry soon!

  3. Oh, what a cool meme, I'll have to jump in next week!! I loved your rant, and completely agree!

    I'm a new follower:) Love to find other army wives on blogger!

  4. I think we have a lot in common, then! It will be fun to talk about our babies:)

    Also, you live closer to our post in Kansas than any of the other mil spouses I've "met" here!! Missouri is just a state over:)


I'd love to know what you think...
