Getting to know you sunday

I jumped on the bandwagon over at MannLannd5 and decided to participate in this weeks Getting to Know you Sunday.

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!!


  1. Soppiing over from MannLand5! I love all your answers, so fun!!! I love your answer for number one!

    Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a great day!

  2. Yum, Miller Lite. I wanna see pics of your tats... well, at least the ones that are appropriate!

  3. Haha, you forgot the JAGER! Yum, I used to drink Liquid Cocaines all through college.

  4. I forgot about peeing standing up! Quick and easy...only I wouldn't miss the bowl and I'd put the seat back down!

  5. 8 tattoos?! Fun! (I have 4 and love them all!)

  6. 8 tattoos? I had no idea. I only have one and it's hidden. :) I keep wanting to get another one though - I just need something good!

  7. I love this whole Getting to Know you Sunday stuff! I love getting to know more about everyone!

  8. I love these posts. My favorite question is the if you were a man question. Thats such a good one to ask someone. I would do allot of different things.

  9. I have drank liquid cocaine before's yummy! How cool that you got to meet a bloggy friend...lucky!

  10. Found you via "Two P's in a Blog". I am sorry to hear that your hubby is deployed. :( Mine deploys in July. I look forward to getting to know you. I'm also in NC. :)

  11. Heyy, I'm new with this, but don't use this blog at all haha. If you go to this one my regular blog addy will be in the post, I kinda suck at postin blogs thou haha. But I came acrossed yours and decided I'd comment. My boyfriends in the army and usually stated in NY, but he's deployed to Afgan right now. So I'm trying to make friends with girls that actually know what I'm going threw. Ohh what really caught my eye though in this posted is that your from WI, that's where my boyfriends from. =] So if he don't decide to reenlist then were moving to WI, sucky thing is I'm from PA, so I'll be away from the family but I'll live haha. Well drop me a comment if u can then.

  12. Just wanted to let you know that I stole this from you! After reading this, I also decided to participate and I linked to you on my post. :)

    It was great getting to learn more about you. I actually have five tattoos, four of which are pretty large; but, I have eight piercings - which I often receive rather rude remarks for (even though five are in my ears and then just my belly button, tongue, and nose!)

    Have a great night!

  13. I want to try that shot! That sounds so good!

  14. Haha...I would love love love to pee standing up!!! Also, I usually lose a ton of weight when the hubs is gone cause when he's home he wants me to eat everything under the sun with him and always buys my faves like ice cream and chocolate...LoL-he makes me a chunk...boys!!!

  15. I love writing too, that's part of what I liked about blogging. I've actually had a family blog for over two years now and it's a great way to journal our lives and brush up on writing skills. I have this book I got from Borders that's really good - It's called Room to Write. It's a bunch of writing prompts I've really enjoyed doing them :)

  16. I love that you have 8 tattoo's.! I seriously love them. Yet, I only have one. I am getting my next one this summer. It is going to be on my foot and I am so excited. I wanted the one I am getting to be my first one but changed it. (:

  17. Great answers! Mille Lite is my go to beer!
