MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

In an effort to learn more about fellow MilSpouse bloggers, Wifey from Wife of a Sailor started this weekly meme; here are this week's questions.

1. What’s the nicest thing a stranger has ever done for you?


This happened in the spring of 2009 when Captain Husband was deployed in Afghanistan; he was on his way home for his mid-tour leave but was unable to get a seat on one of the planes leaving the country. After three days of this (and me going crazy with the uncertainty of it all), someone gave his seat to CH so that he could make it home in time for my birthday. Best. Birthday. Present. Ever.

2. If you are having a hard time going to sleep, what do you do to help yourself?


I'll crack open a book and read for a bit; that usually helps take my mind off things and relax enough that I can then go to sleep.

3. Name something that makes you wish you were a kid again.


I actually miss the whole "going back to school" frenzy that takes place in the late summer/early fall. Whenever I see the notepads, backpacks and pencil cases hit the stores, I always feel a little pang of longing. What can I say? I'm a nerd.

4. What is something you never believed until you experienced it?


I don't want to say love at first sight, but I definitely knew there was just *something* special about Captain Husband from the moment I laid eyes on him (must have been the mullet wig).

5. What can’t you say “no” to?


A good deal on an antique, much to my wallet's chagrin. And usually dessert.

I agree, that would be the best birthday present ever! My mom always tells me in August that she misses helping me get ready to go back to college. She loved doing that!

#1 is awesome. :)

Oooh, I love antiques too. I love collecting decors from other countries but they are all neatly packed away now as I start to babyproof the place.
