MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #41

It's Friday!! You know what that means?? I'm another week in Pregnancy! I'm 27 Weeks Today!!! Ahhh!! I'm so excited! Next Friday, I probably won't be posting. Actually, Next Thursday-Tuesday I will be MIA...again. Sorry, I promise I'll be back Wednesday with full details of why. It's very Exciting!!! You know what else Friday Means..It's time for another MilSpouse Friday Fill-In!!

Wanna Join in? Just Head on Over to Wife of a Sailor for details and To Link up!!

This Weeks Questions Are:

What is one of the things you always do special when your husband returns from a deployment? 

Well, I stock the fridge with his Favorite Things...Diet Mtn Dew and Whiskey..Plus his favorite foods. I also Make sure to have cheesecake waiting for him. Then I get the house nice and clean. The Day of Homecoming I get all prettied & dressed up(Usually, unless its a crazy early hour for me to pick him up) And go pick him up!

What do you do to help your spouse and/or yourself re-adjust after a deployment or long separation? 

Since we do it almost every year, There's no question, We both just deal. I do give him leeway and let him do what he wants for a couple weeks. What else can you do other than be patient?

Are you a crazy coupon clipper (I’m becoming one, so share your secrets with me)?

Nope. I do clip coupons but I'm not Crazy about it. I do clip What I know I Need and Forget about the other coupons. But sometimes I forget to cip Coupons.

What’s your most treasured memory of you and your spouse (not counting your wedding – that’s a given)?

That's a tough one. I have so many memories with hubby that I treasure. But if I have to pick I'd have to say the day of my first ultrasound. Hearing the baby's heartbeat for the first time is absolutely amazing and hubby was so cute! It's either that or the day we found out Brayden was a boy...Thats another story itself.

If you could live anywhere overseas, what would you pick and why?

Hmm...Anywhere? I'm not sure. I've always wanted to See Italy so I guess I would pick Italy.

I hope everyone has a Fabulous weekend!!

Thursday Five

It's Thursday and time for Thursday 5! Link up with Flip Flops and Combat Boots!!
  I haven't done one in a while but It's a great way to reflect on the week!
Just come up with five things that are:






1. Hubby is always Irresistible, Just by being him. He's always surprising me with something and even with us apart, He still is so irresistible.

2. With Hubby deploying soon, I can't be Negative. Baby Brayden helps me stay Positive. I'm already in love with him and he's not even here yet. =D

3. I was Successful yesterday in not Going extremely crazy in the Baby Department. I tend to go crazy in Baby clothes. I haven't had my Baby Shower yet and His Closet is already full.

4. I Love Vibrant Colors. I show that off in my photography.

5. The most Glorious thing being pregnant is feeling my son Move & Kick. I Just Love to feel his little feet, butt and head when he pops one out, so to speak. =)

I hope everyone has a good rest of the day/evening.

Playing Catch-up. 30 Days of me, Days 13 - 16.

Since I've been MIA since January, I need to get back to 30 days of me. So in this post I'm going to do a few days. I promise I'll do an actual post soon. I'm just super busy right now getting ready for my trip to see hubby.

Day 13: A fictional book

I absolutely love Nicholas Sparks and ALL his books. I'm sure everyone's either read this book or seen the movie based off of it. But it's basically a love story. I love it! For more info on it go here.

Day 14: A non-fictional book

This book was written by a Army Wife named Sara Dawalt. I just love this book. I bought it on Amazon during Michael's last deployment for a kind of encouragement. I got quite a few of them actually. But I love this book alot. Sara talks about her personal experiences during her husbands 365 day deployment to Iraq. After I finished reading it, I had my mom read it so she could get a better understanding of what I was going through. If you want to know more about it or even buy it, click here.

Day 15: A fanfic
Ummmm...So I have no idea what this is so I cant really put anything here. lol.

Day 16: A song that makes you cry (or nearly)

The first time I heard this song, it was just a couple days after we found out Hubby was deploying again So I was already emotional but this song had me bawling. I love it.

That's it for today! More Tomorrow. I hope everyone had a Great Tuesday!

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #40

Well, I've missed a BUNCH of MilSpouse Fridays, lol. But I love them so much. It's a little late but here it is:

Wanna Join in? Head on over to Wife of a Sailor for details and link up.

This Weeks Questions Are:

Which was the best day of your life- Wedding day or Homecoming day?

Hmmm...I'd have to say Wedding Day. We have many Homecoming days and though they are Ah-Mazing, They are still just that...Homecoming Days. My Wedding was a Once in a lifetime deal and It was an absolutely amazing day.

Were you a part of the joining the military question or did you sign up for the relationship when your man was already in the military? 

Well, I wasn't a Part of his choice but I did voice my opinion. We were just really Close friends when he made the decision but I knew I wanted more. I was already in love with him.

What is your favorite Disney movie and why? 

Oh. That is a Hard one!! I can't Pick! I always loved Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmations, Beauty & the Beast and The Little Mermaid when I was a little girl. I still love the Classics.

What is your favorite family activity to do on the weekends?

Putt-Putt Golf, Bowling, Fishing, Geocaching, The Park....Pretty much anything outdoors if it's nice out. If its not nice out then Movies or Just staying in.

Where do you secretly wish you could be stationed with you/your SO’s line of work (realistically speaking, not everyone can be stationed on NAS Fiji)? 

Ummm...Yeah, I have no idea honestly. Lol. I would love to be stationed in Italy though.

If you missed my update below, Check it out.


Hey Everyone!! It's been a while since I've updated! I'm so sorry, My Internet for some odd reason always acts up when I get on Blogger. There's SO Much to catch everyone up on!!!

in March we found out Michael was deploying for a year. It was devastating especially when it meant He's going to miss the birth of our First Child & the first 10 months of our Child's Life. We tried so many things to stop it from happening but unfortunately he's deploying Very soon. On March 30th We found out the baby is a BOY!!! We're naming him Brayden Michael and he's Due August 19th!

In April, I moved home to Missouri to be with Me & Hubby's Families while he's deployed. Hubby left for Combat Training and is currently at Training.

This month, I've just been spending my time with family and friends...And Buying Baby Stuff! Hubby has a 4 day weekend at the end of this month and can leave training for them 4 days So I am flying back to Louisiana to spend those 4 days with him. I can't wait to see him & I am So excited that he finally gets to feel Brayden kick!! He wasn't kicking yet when we said our goodbyes in April. After that 4 day weekend Hubby will be going back to finish his training & I will be flying back to Missouri. Hubby will Deploy shortly after and We won't see each other until He comes home for his R&R and Brayden will probably be about 4 months old then. =( I knew what I was getting into when we said I do but I just never imagined us being one of the couples who gets pregnant and wont be together at the birth. It's killing me and I know its killing him. It's heartbreaking but we will survive. We're a strong couple and now Family.

Well, I think that's about it. Brayden's a healthy growing baby, He kicks mommy more & more everyday. He discovered my ribs yesterday :/ lol. Well, Its late and I need to get some Sleep. I promise I'll be on more often! I hope everyone has a Great Weekend!
