I got my first tag from USNchic at Have a Great Navy Day. So, here it goes...
1. If you could have any super power, what would you have? Why?
The power to make money (you know, without a job). Then I could finally get a minivan (yes, I want one), a house with enough room for us and visitors and be able to afford private school for our girls. Oh, and I'd totally get my sister a dream grand piano - she deserves it.
2. Who is your style icon?
Britney Spears. Um, just kidding. It is probably Jennifer Aniston - I like the simplicity and timelessness of her style. Oh, and her hair is amazing.
3. What is your favorite quote?
"Be still and know that I am God." It's found in Psalm 46:10. It's a great reminder that when life is hard, trying, exhausting and busy that we should remember Who is really in control and submit control to Him. It's really freeing to know that. I constantly need reminded of that.
4. What is the best compliment you've ever received?
Joel wrote me an email about a month back where he told me how much he appreciated having a wife at home who he knew he could trust to take care of things here while he's away. I work really hard to make sure things at home are squared-away so he doesn't have to worry about them. Sometimes I feel/think that he doesn't notice, so it felt great to be encouraged in that way.
5. What playlist/CD is in your CD player/iPod right now?
I've been listening to Lady Antebellum for the past month or so. They're just starting to get to the annoying stage, though.
6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
I'm totally a night owl. I used to work a security job where I would be up most of the night by myself - I loved it.
7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Dogs. Joel and I are "in talks" about getting a beagle at some point.
8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
I had a few close friends help me with it. Originally, it was going to be A Soldier's Girl, but Air Force peeps call each other troop instead of soldier. I guess soldier's an army-thing.
Ok, so the rule is I have to tag 8 people. So here you go:
Honey Bunches of "Oaks"
In The Grip Of Grace
Of Skype and Sand
One Tired Momma
Our Military Adventure
The Ever Changing Life of a Military Wife
There Goes Our Hero
