MilSpouse Friday Fill In #3

Another MilSpouse Friday Fill In with Wife Of A Sailor. Go link up!!
  1. 1. What is your favorite MilSpouse blog (not including Wife of a Sailor who we all love, or your own)? submitted by Our Crazy Life (Wifey note: whaaaat? You can’t say my blog? No fun! LOL, just kidding)

    Oh gosh, I can’t choose just one. I do have a soft spot for ‘cause I don’t know how it gets better than this….I think she was one of my first followers, we’re very similar and we it seems like our guys are too, and we email back and forth pretty much all day long. We’re both going through a deployment right now, and her husband left just a few weeks ahead of Seth last year. Plus, I steal cool craft ideas from her, one which will be coming soon :) But rest assured, I have a LOT of favorites

  2. What are your favorite perks about your s/o being deployed (we all know there are perks)? submitted by Ramblings of a Marine Wife

    My most favorite thing about a deployment, besides the most obvious homecoming/reuniting moment, is not having to shave my legs. The other day I shaved them for, I think, the first time since he went back after R&R. And it’s been almost 1 month. Yikes, huh? I also love making care packages. I did a blog about this a while ago, here.

  3. How long did you date your significant other before getting engaged? Married? submitted by Utterly Chaotic

    Let’s see here…met online in March 2008, met in person in June 2008, dated from June 2008 to December 2009 while he was in Iraq, and Germany and engaged from December 2009 till nowish. Our wedding is in July and I can't wait :) (I use the term "dated" loosely because he was in Iraq, then Ft. Drum, NY for 5 months, then Germany for a year, so we physically didn't go on dates. We webcammed though and that was the closest we came to going out on dates. Don't get me wrong, we we were in a committed relationship from June 2008 and there was no dating others, but not physical dates for us together either. Just to clarify...)

  4. What do you think your would do if s/he wasn’t in the military? submitted by Adventures of M-Squared

    Oh dear, you name it, he wants to do it. We’ve talked about this many times and he wants to do a little bit of everything. First and foremost, he’d love to own his own business (preferably a bowling alley), perhaps be a police officer or a fire fighter, a professor, a CEO of a company, obviously a soldier, investment banker, financial consultant. We’ve seriously talked and thrown a bunch of careers out there, but I am almost positive, that no matter what, he’ll be a career soldier. I think he would be a great CEO, but he would have a hard time sitting at a desk each day. He needs more physical activity and excitement that I’m pretty sure a CEO position wouldn’t be able to provide.

  5. If you could talk to the Secretary of Army, what is one suggestion you would like to bring to their attention in order to improve the lives of military families? submitted by My Life as His (Air Force) Wife

    I haven't experienced military life to the fullest yet, because we've been separated our whole relationship, so I don't think I'm too qualified to answer this completely. However, I would like to inquire about shorter deployments for the Army, and while I'm at it, longer amounts of time between deployments. And also, perhaps getting just a girl with a status of girlfriend on his orders so I could have gone to Germany with him when he PCS'd there...and not have to pay all of the expenses out of my pocket.


  1. i cant wait to till you guys get excited for the pictures!!!

  2. Hubby & I met online too:) I also love not having to shave my legs...though sometimes I let it go when he's home. Oops. He doesn't mind too much:)

  3. I think a lot of us appreciate not feeling obligated to shave our legs while our guys are gone. :-) Best wishes for your upcoming wedding!
