Happy Friday everyone! I’ve been anticipating this weekend for over a month now. We have tickets to go see the Nutcracker tomorrow night! YAY! Me, my sister and our parents are going. I’m so excited. However, tonight, our parents are taking us somewhere. We have no clue where! I will definitely be posting about it later though.
Well, here are this weeks questions and my answers! Enjoy!
1. What is the best gift you have ever received or given?
The best gift I’ve ever received. Last Christmas. It was just a few weeks before we got married. My amazing sweetheart gave me a “New Army Wife Kit” as he called it. It had the Army Wife handbook, (yes there really is one!) a map of our current post, several things about military life, and a hat, tshirt and lanyard that say “Army Wife”. It made me tear up. I loved it! So special.
2. Do you celebrate holidays differently when your loved one is deployed/gone or do you keep tradition?
This is our first married Christmas, but this will be our 3rd Christmas together as a couple. Last year Matthew and his youngest daughter joined my family for Christmas at my grandparents house. This year, we will be going to their house again. I’m hoping to be able to Skype with Matthew as we open our gifts.
3. If you celebrate Christmas, do you put an angel, star or something else on the top of your tree?
We have a star on the tree. When we were younger, my mom put a red bow on the tree. Thankfully she’s upgraded to a star. Much better. 🙂
4. What are your three favorite websites?
Oh wow. That changes quite often, honestly. But currently, it’s Military Significant Other Support (MSOS) which is a message forum for, you guessed it, Military significant others. Spouses, girlfriends, even families. It’s a great site. I have “met” some of the most amazing women on there. They are really helping me get through this deployment.
My next fave would have to be SITS (Secret is in The Sauce), which is a blogging support site. More like a sisterhood, or SITSah-hood. Hehe. They have featured bloggers, blogging tips, memes, giveaways, etc.
And my 3rd fave would have to be Facebook. I know, it’s everyone’s fave! But Facebook and Twitter are the main way I communicate with Matthew. That, to me, is priceless.
5. On your man do you prefer… boxers, briefs or boxer briefs? Or commando?
I really think that if I answered this question on my blog (which is also connected to my facebook!) my husband would KILL me! LOL! You’ll just have to keep guessing.
