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

Welcome back to another week of the MilSpouse Friday Fill-In sponsored by The Wifey over at Wife of a Sailor! I'm sure no one noticed, but in case you did, I missed last week's for a number of reasons the first being that I couldn't think of answers to the questions namely, I was in the car with my parents and daughter for 7 hours last Friday. But anyways, I'm back (!) and here is this weeks' questions (and answers!)

You might also notice that there is a blog name in parentheses after the question. That is because this week the questions are all taken from last week's meme. If you find a certain question particularly amusing, you can follow the link to find out more about the blogger who came up with it! Enjoy!

1. What secret indulgence do you act on while your spouse is away? (from Devil Dog Darling)
I tend to watch terrible TV that D loathes. Seriously, if he knew the amount of time I spent watching shows like Real Housewives, Army Wives and Jon and Kate Plus 8 (they were still together last time D was deployed), he would probably not be surprised, but he might throw up in his mouth a little bit.

2. If you were a spice, what would you be? (from New Girl On Post)
Garlic because I would make everything more delicious! LOL Seriously, we eat a LOT of garlic in this house, its kind of my go-to spice, so if you don't like it, you should steer clear of pretty much any dish I make (aside from desserts).

3. Where do you go for support when your significant other is deployed? (from Texas Meets Washington)
My biggest support system while D was gone was actually his friends. They kind of took me in and helped me to realize what he was going through. It was interesting to think about our situation from the military member's perspective and they helped me a lot. We were very close and I was present when a few of them met their significant others! My mom also helped me out quite a bit. Even though she doesn't really know what its like, my Mom has this way of putting everything into perspective for me. For me it was important to have people around who weren't going to let me feel sorry for myself.

4. What is the oldest thing you own? (from A Troop's Girl)
Oh geez. I have no idea. I guess my Care Bear, named Cousin Bear, from when I was a baby. I don't have it here with us though, its at my parent's house. Cousin Bear is actually an elephant. She is a Care Bear cousin, so I guess that is how she got her name, not sure though!

5. How did you vision your future pre-military? (from Daddy's Duty)
I'm going to be honest and say that a lot of how I envisioned my future turned out to actually happen. Some things in reality are vastly different from what I envisioned (like how much money D makes) but for the most part, I saw us getting married and having a family. We weren't located in a specific place in my visions, but I guess that is because I just assumed that we'd be close to Hometown, USA. I've never been a career-minded person, so I never really had big plans for myself. I guess I'm lucky that the whole "get married and have kids thing" worked out for me so quickly! Ha ha.


  1. I love garlic in dishes! It just makes my breath smell rank :(

  2. well if you love garlic have you ever tried it in chocolate chip cookies? it really brings the richness out in the chocolate and it's a great thing to put in care packages to make people go whhhaatt?!?!? when it's opened lol

  3. Jon and Kate Plus 8, I just threw up in my mouth a little, too. And garlic makes pretty much anything better! You can NEVER have too much of it. I love reeking like garlic for days after a good meal! Good thing OccDoc is a garlic lova' too.

  4. Garlic is so tasty!

    By the way I just love the quote on your profile, "I base most of my fashion sense on what doesn't itch." That's so me :)

    Take care!

  5. One of my secret trashy shows is also Kate Plus 8! Terrible I know ;)

  6. I found your blog on Wife of a Sailor, and I have to say I LOVE that most of us have written that when our husbands are gone, our big secret is trash tv! Love it. :)


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