Go over and read what other military spouses said this week at Wife of a Sailor.
1.What secret indulgence do you act on while your spouse is away? (from Devil Dog Darling)
Shoes! Although I don't think that Joel would call it a secret indulgence. I love them and usually add some new pretties to my closet while he's gone.
2.If you were a spice, what would you be? (from New Girl On Post)
Vanilla Bean. Seriously, good vanilla-anything rocks. Try Starbucks' Vanilla Bean Frappuccino ice cream. It's amazing.
3.Where do you go for support when your significant other is deployed? (from Texas Meets Washington)
I have a few close friends and family that are my go-to people for emotional support, spiritual and practical support. There are just a few people who really truly walk this road with me and know my ups and downs.
4.What is the oldest thing you own? (from A Troop’s Girl)
Hey, that's my question! :)
I'd have to say our house - it's somewhere around 90 years old. Joel would say that it owns us. And for anyone who owns an old house, you know that's so true.
But as far as a personal belonging, I have a tshirt that I got at a youth conference my freshman year of high school - so it's going on 14 years old. It's barely holding together at this point, but I can't part with it.
5.How did you vision your future pre-military? (from Daddy’s Duty)
This would be pre-Joel since the military was part of the Joel-package when I found him. I thought, in college, that I would move back to the Chicago area and do PR/Marketing for a firm in that area. I'd so museums on the weekends and hit-up coffee shops during the week. I'd have a closet full of awesome shoes and designer suits. My life is so different than I imagined, but I'm so happy with the way it's turned out.
