It's time for the MilSpouse Friday Fill-In. I am linking up with Wife of a Sailor. It's a great way for Military Spouses to get to visit each others blogs and get to know about each other. Each week Wife of a Sailor posts five questions for us to answer. We post them on our blog, and then go link-up to Wife of a Sailor's blog. Here are the five questions, and my answers this week:
1)If you were given $1,000 right now, how would you spend it? I wouldn't spend it. I would put it in the bank.
2)If you had to choose a movie title (a real one that already exists) for your life story, what would it be? Well, in my "younger days" I have to say "Carrie" first. That was followed "The Breakfast Club." Now, it is more like "50 First Dates."
3)If you were a teacher, what subject would you like to teach? I am a certified elementary school teacher.
4)Has being a MilSpouse changed how you view holidays or how your holidays are celebrated? If so, how? If not, what hasn’t changed? It's not just being a MilSpouse that changes the way I view the holidays, my views changed when I got married. However, being a military spouse means that my husband is not always home for all the holidays. For instance, this year, we visited my husband on the ship for Thanksgiving. Then, on Friday, we had the "real" Thanksgiving. No one cared about the fact that it was Friday...it was our Thanksgiving, and we loved it. So, I guess the one thing that has changed the most is that now I see that no one can tell you when to celebrate your holidays...the magic happens as long as you're all together.
5)What is your favorite Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) memory? Growing up, spending Christmas at my Grandmother's house is what made Christmas special. Finding what Santa left me and sharing it with my siblings was so much fun. Now, I still love Santa and making new memories every year. I'll tell you something else that meant a lot to me...even though we weren't together for Christmas, my husband made a DVD of himself opening his Christmas gifts. He talked to all of us individually, and we really enjoyed having that!
That's all for this weeks edition of Mil-Spouse Friday Fill-In. Tune in next time! Enjoy your weekend! (c:
