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.

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

Wife of a Sailor posted the weekly Friday Fill-In questions yesterday and I looked at them, noticed they were more difficult than last week's questions and did not think about them again until this morning when I just sat down to write my post for the day. Bear with me. My brain is a little mushy and honestly, while good questions, some of this week's questions are those that I dread facing in an interview because, well, I just don't know, I'm super indecisive and tend to ramble (like you couldn't have guessed that)!

Here goes!

1. Tell us about your dream that you could do regardless of pay.

Hmmm. This is one of those questions that I dread answering. Honestly, I am one of those people who could not work and be totally content. There are people who would go crazy if they didn't have a job/career/profession. I am not one of them. I do, however, want to be a teacher and am planning on getting certified to do so when we get to our next duty station. I would not do it for free though.

2. What is your most prized material possession (kids and pets don't count)?

My most prized possession would have to be a tie between my engagement and wedding rings and my West Point neckalce D gave me for Ring Weekend. My rings for the obvious reasons, but my WP necklace is also really important to me because it symbolizes sort of the beginning of our committment to each other. D surprised me with it and it has his initials engraved on the back of it. It is pretty awesome!

3. What has been your favorite duty station and why?

I haven't been to any duty stations that I openly disliked, but some I enjoyed more than others. Those that I enjoyed were more due to my friends than the location. With that being said, my favorite so far was Ft. Hood. I knew a lot of people there and although D was deployed almost the entire time we were stationed there, I had my friends and that really helped me get through the deployment. I met some of my best friends there who I hope to see again at another duty station in the near future!

4. What is your least favorite household chore?

As weird as this will sound, I hate making coffee. I don't know if this is considered a chore, but in our house, we never remember to empty it out after we make a pot, so the next time we want coffee, we have to empty and clean it before we brew the new pot. UGH! I hate it! I do, however, love coffee.

5. If you could give one piece of advice to a teenager today (not specifically a MilTeen), what would it be?

My advice would be to stop worrying about what other people think about you. Seriously, outside high school, no one cares about how cool you think you are and the people who do are not worth being friends with!


  1. I'm kind of surprised you liked Hood better than Lewis, but then again, awesome people like me are at Hood, ha ha.

  2. I only like to work long enough to remind myself that I do love my children and they were not sent into my life to make me question my love for them or my sanity.

  3. Haha... I hate cleaning ANY dishes/pots just to use them.

    Thanks for participating and I hope you'll join us next week!


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