MilSpouse Friday Fill-in

This is my first fill-in, of course since I'm new to the blog world and all. If you want to participate go over to Wife of a Sailor.

1.What is ONE thing you’d like civilians to understand about being a military family?
One thing that drives me insane that I hear all the time from civilians is that we get free housing and that they're paying for us to live for free. This is not true. We don't get free housing. We pay for our housing and bills out of a paycheck, just like civilians.

2.What is your favorite mistake?
That would probably be sneaking out to hang out with my bestie when we were smaller. I always got grounded for months at a time but it was so worth it because those were the best times I had with her and they were precious because she passed away 2 weeks short of her 16th birthday..

3.What indulgence could you give up for a year?
Soda. I drink it way to much. I would be a much healthier person.

4.If you could be a winged animal, what would you be?
I guess just saying "A Bird" wouldn't be to good. I honestly don't know my birds that well though. I think I'll go with a Blue Bird. Because they're pretty and My home state bird(Missouri).

5.What is one question you’d like to see asked in a future MFF?
What's your best advice for newbies to the military?
If you could have any Super Power, what would it be?

Awesome Questions. So this weekend should be fun. I've got plans with a fellow military wife. She's married to an Airman but she herself is also an airman?!? We became friends while our hubbys were deployed together this last deployment. Since I did the fill-in and its about me, I wont write anything about me or hubby today. Have a great Weekend! :)


  1. Hello darling! I just came across your blog and am your newest follower.

    I also can NOT stand it when people think that we get to live on base for free! It is so annoying!

    I look forward to seeing more of your blog:)

  2. oh man when we lived on post a maintence man was giving me a hard time about complaining about our electric bill. I said do you understand i pay $1300 for this house (maybe it was like $1250, i can not remember)

  3. We had the same answer for #1!

    Hope to see you again next week!
