MilSpouse Friday Fill-In


Link up and join the fun at Wife of a Sailor!

1. With PCS moves happening every few years, do you take the time to paint and decorate your home? submitted by Life as Mrs. JPT
--Heck yes! My philosophy on this is simple. You have to bloom where you are planted. I believe part of that blooming is making your house, no matter where it is or how long you'll be there, your HOME. There are so many inconsistencies in the military lifestyle that it is only natural to want to have your home be your safe haven. Decorating it, painting it, landscaping...all these things provide stability and a sense of normalcy. While the hubby was deployed, I had to move us out of our home to a newly renovated home down the street. I had my dining room painted in the old house and I loved it. So, even though I knew (for a fact) that we would only occupy the new home for less than 9 months, I painted the new dining room. I have to paint it back to eggshell white in a few weeks...but I have no regrets. Never will.


2. If you could live in any home on a television series, what would it be? submitted by Standing By Him
--I would want to live in the apartment that literally the entire cast of Friends has lived in at one point or another. I love that show. And that apartment, the one Rachel and Monica lived in most of the time, is iconic. Could you imagine having those people for roommates? I would love it. Comic relief on a daily basis.

3. What inspired you to start your blog?  submitted by Pink Combat Boots
--Well, I started reading blogs a little over 6 months ago and fell in love with reading and relating with other military families (like myself) as well as people from all over the world. I thought it was a great way to keep family and friends updated on our life because, as you know, it's always changing. So, I created a blog. It has turned out to be a very wonderful thing. I've gotten such positive feedback and support that I can't remember my life without blogging. What better way to keep documentation of your life and have a creative outlet? It's like a diary, only less private. :) And, bonus! I've made lots of new friends!

4. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen on base? submitted by Adventures in Life
--I've seen a woman walking her morbidly obese cat down the street...on a leash. That's not even the best part. She was also wearing a pink tu-tu. The cat, mind you. Not the woman. Although, I wouldn't have put it past her to wear one too. See boys! This is what happens when you leave your wives at home alone for to long! They go a little...crazy.

5. Which historical figure (politician, writer, artist, scientist, actor, etc…) would you like to have dinner with?  submitted by Army of Two
I have two people I'd love to break bread with. First of all, Princess Diana. Something about her, and the entire royal family for that matter, fascinates me. I can't wait for the upcoming nuptials of her son and the classy Kate Middleton! Secondly, but definitely not in that order because I think He's second best, I'd love to have dinner with Jesus. Who wouldn't? I've got tons of questions and I know He's got all the right answers. Guess I will have to wait until I'm welcomed inside the pearly gates for that one. Oh what a dinner that will be!
