MilSpouse Friday Fill-in #46
Are you a different person than you were five years ago? submitted by Sisterly Thoughts
Sure, I'm not all that different but I have grown and evolved. Five years ago I was still a relatively new mom slogging through that and trying to figure out how to, well, BE a mom or a successful one at least. I was also still a rather naive young Navy wife...still living in my hometown (thanks small Navy weather community!) Now it's a bit more old hat both motherhood and the military deal. Under it all, I'm still me.
If you could go on Amazing Race, who would you take with you as your partner and why? submitted by Thoughts from a Poekitten
This is actually something we've talked about! we're avid fans of Amazing Race along with my sister - when we were all living in the same town, we'd have along with a few other friends, watching parties. Yes we are those people. My sister and I have actually talked quite extensively about submitting an audition tape. We work amazingly well together and both of us have traveled quite a bit. We'd be screwed for anything that involved skydiving but other than that I know we'd do fantastic! The hubs and I would probably kill each other lol but really my practical soul says one of us needs to stay home and watch the kids.
Does Facebook or Twitter actually bring more stress or good in to your life? submitted by Just an Arizona Girl
Definitely more good however I use them differently. Twitter is more anonymous and more of my "let it out" place whereas Facebook is populated with my mom, siblings, pastor, assorted family members etc. It's wonderful for keeping everyone updated on the boys and just keeping in touch but I'm definitely more guarded and watch my opinions more on there.
June is National Soul Food Month- what’s your soul food? submitted by NH Girl Displaced
Lefse. It's like a Norwegian tortilla but made of potatoes. My grandmother made it growing up and she's been gone for more than 15 years...the last few years my sister and I have started making it. It's like childhood in my mouth. It's my favorite food. Ever.
If you could live in any other era than the current, which one would it be & why? submitted by Sugar in My Grits
I'm a history buff and while there are quite a few eras that fascinate me and I'd love to visit, I'm not sure that I'd love to live full time in any of them. I kind of love my modern conveniences a little too much lol. The 1850's of California have fascinated me, Victorian England, 1700's Scotland, 1940/50s Cornwall, really I could go on...and on. But I think I'll stick with where I'm at and be content with reading about my favorite eras.
