Here are the questions
1 - Why did you start blogging?
I always wanted to be a writer, every since I was little I always was writing short stories and b"working on a book". Then as I married a military man I thought it would be fun to write a book about our experiences together. I thought blogging would be good way to practice my writing. However it turned into an even better way to connect with military spouses who are experiencing what I am and have experienced and also to meet many new people and start many new and amazing blogger friendships!
2 - Who's the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in "real life"?
I would love to meet you all. I actually had my first bloggy meet up today. I met KPOD today for brunch. It was so much fun. I had a great time meeting up with another military spouse in the area and chit chatting about anything and everything. Since her hubby is deployed along with mine I am hoping for many more bloggy meet up's. Also in a few weeks I will be heading up to Charlotte to meet up with my bloggy BFF, Amber! There are a variety of other blogger's that I know if we met in person we would be great friends!
3 - Why are you always concerned with losing that "extra 10 pounds" when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look just fine the way you are?
During my hubby's last deployment I packed on the pounds. I gained about 15 pounds putting me at the heaviest I have ever been. I lost most of it before he returned but then living with a hubby,who had only eaten rice, beans and goat for the last 9 months, who now wanted to eat at every restaurant imaginable, I started to gain the weight again. So now that he is gone I am trying to adopt a more healthy lifestyle and lose some weight before he gets home. Not to mention it will be swimsuit season in a few short months.
4 - What's the one thing you wish guys could understand about you?
Hmm, that I'm very emotional. My hubby is still getting used to this. I can't help it
5 - Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your "everyday" clothes?
I have 8!! I know, I know. You are all thinking, What!!! They are all small and only one can be seen when I wear clothes and that is the tattoo on my foot which is only visible when I wear heels or flip flops
6 - What was the best year of your life and why?
I have two. First would be 2008 when I married my soulmate and best friend. But this past year, 2009 would have to be the best year yet. My hubby was home from his deployment, I was finally moved down to NC and we were starting our new life together as hubby and wife.
7 - Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day.
Walk around topless, pee standing up and be lazy!!!
8 - What's your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows?
Being from Wisconsin, I am strictly a Miller Lite girl but the one drink that raises eyebrow's isn't really a drink. It's a shot called Liquid cocaine-Rumple mints, Goldschlauger and I can't recall the final ingredient that makes this shot so yummy!!!
I will be back later posting about my bloggy meet up and finally getting to some awards I had received a few days ago!!
