Milspouse Friday Fill-In!

This is my first Milspouse Friday Fill-In. It is hosted by Wife of a Sailor, and I think its such a great idea for the military blogging community! Now, on to the questions!

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
At the moment I would have to say ACU's, Stiletto Shoes, and Pretty Pink Tutus. I just recently started following her, and I think that she is an amazing writer! Plus, she has the most adorable title!

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
Even though deployments SUCK, one perk is that there is less cleaning to do! I know my hubby isn't the only messy one out there!

3.How long did you date your before getting engaged? Married? submitted by Utterly Chaotic
I dated Chris for 10 months before we got engaged, and then got married a month later. I know its superrr quick, but we put a lot of thought into it, and I KNOW that he is the one for me.

4.What do you think your would do if s/he wasn’t in the military? submitted by Adventures of M-Squared
He would be a photographer! Or own a hookah bar/ coffee lounge haha

5.If you could talk to the Secretary of the Navy 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
Whenever I get frustrated about something, I tell Chris that I need to talk to 'Mr. Navy' and give him a piece of my mind. I guess maybe I should say 'secretary of the navy' to be more accurate. Anyway, I guess my unrealistic answer is that the Navy should pay more attention to families. Just last week, my hubby's division was told that they could be sent TAD, and 'it doesn't matter whether they are single or married.' And we won't find out until like 2 days before he has to go. I'm not asking the Navy to not send my husband because he is married, but just to prepare spouses a little more. They call us 'dependents' but then don't let us depend on our husbands because we never know what to expect!


  1. I'm in San Diego too :)

    I feel you on your last entry. People always ask me why certain things happen in the Navy and my response is always "I don't run the Navy".

  2. I dunno, I think you should keep saying "Mr. Navy." That's almost too cute to stop!

  3. Less cleaning is a great perk, my squid IS the messy

  4. I think better communication from Mr. Navy would be nice too! And having things written in something a little more firm than jell-o would be AMAZING:)
