Thursday Fill-In

Here are my answers (a day early) to Wife of a Sailor’s questions:

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

1. If you could be a fugitive from the law for whatever reason, what would your crime be? (from It’s a Hooah Life)   I’d probably get in trouble for making my husband go AWOL. Seriously, how awesome would it be to just runaway…or just take a day off for no particular reason. I’d make him play hooky, but I would want to get in trouble for it.
2. How long do you think you will be a military family? (from Julie the Army Wife) As long as things go well, he’s going to make it a career and I’m more than happy to support him as long as he chooses to stay in. We’ve decided, though, that if—at any point—his job start jeopardizing our family, he’ll get out.
3. What’s your favorite recipe? (from Keep Calm and Soldier On) Oh, this is a very tough one, so I’ll share a few of our recent favorites. Seriously, these are all delicious. We kinda have a thing for The Pioneer Woman and Alton Brown in our house! I can’t wait to get some more recipes out of this – great question!
4.What would you want your last five words to be when you leave this life? (from My Goal is Simple) “She loved and was loved.” 

5. Where do you hope to retire? (from Pennies from Heaven) Easy. Albuquerque, New Mexico.

And just a little PSA…have you heard of Groupon? It’s a pretty awesome site and they have deals for TONS of cities around America. They post a new deal every day and today’s Groupon is $50 worth of apparel at Gap for only $25! How awesome is that? So, seriously, go sign yourself up and check out these daily deals! (And have you signed up for Rue La La? It’s pretty fantastic as well!)


  1. Love the AWOL answer! I'm right there with you! In fact, I think in Barcelona on R&R last deployment I told him he didn't need to go back! I'll lock him up and throw away the key!

    I love Groupon!! I saw the Gap deal today – what a great deal!

  2. HAHAHA – OMG Jess I have pretty much the same answer as my #1 🙂 I filled it out this morning and have it scheduled to post tomorrow morning! Gotta love thinking alike 😉

  3. very nice. If you come back to visit ABQ in the near future, gimme notice and maybe we can meet up for coffee and chat military life!

    And I LOVE groupon too!

  4. I love Alton Brown! I've been through Abuquerque three times, but I've never actually stopped to look around. Well, I went to the nuclear weapons museum, and that was pretty awesome, but that's it 🙂

  5. Mmmmmm margaritas and twice baked potatoes… That's all I needed to hear 🙂

    I really do like your final words too. Very poignant!!
