MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

Since this is a military family sort of blog, and I follow a lot of military spouse blogs (as you can see on the right side of my page), I thought I'd join in on the MilSpouse Friday Fill-In.  It will probably be sporadically, but I thought it would be a great way to connect to other military spouses.

1. If you could be a fugitive from the law for whatever reason, what would your crime be? 
This is a hard question for me to answer.  I'm a pretty straight-laced sort of person so it's hard to think of something that I'd really want to do that's illegal.  Michael said I would probably want to steal some limited edition book from a library or something equally nerdy, but I said no way.  I'm more devious than that.  It'd be from a museum for sure.

2. How long do you think you will be a military family? 
I'm hoping it will be for the next twenty years or so, but at this point, I have no idea.  Michael has only been enlisted for seven months so we have only seen a small side of military life thus far.  But the military has so much to offer--traveling, security, benefits--that I have a feeling this is the life we'll choose to keep living for a long time.

3. What's your favorite recipe? 
My favorite recipe is for chocolate chip cookies.  It's a recipe I got from my mom and the cookies are crumbly rather than soft and gooey.  Exactly the way I like them!

4. What would you want your last five words to be when you leave this life? 
I know this is suppose to be a serious question, but I can't think of one thing I would want to say except "I love you".  And as I'm sure you're all aware of, that's only three words.  I have thought of a few five word sentences that aren't really appropriate.  Like, "don't steal my money, biatch" or "I'm a ganster, for real".  Since I'm planning on being a crazy old lady when I die, I think it would be hilarious.  
5. Where do you hope to retire?
I'd love to retire somewhere warm and tropical...just like everyone else, probably.  I'm from Wisconsin so I'm so over snow it's not even funny.  I would love to retire near the ocean and for it be sunny everyday.  Florida or California, perhaps?  But I have thirty or so years left before this issue will come up, and a lot can change in that amount of time. 


  1. I'd love to just break into a art museum and stare at the works with music blaring and not a single kid bothering me. lol

  2. That sounds like a great illegal activity!

  3. I love your #4 answer. I couldn't think of a really serious last thing I would like to say that was just five words. And every other thing that WAS 5 words, were were either smartassed or so cliche, I felt they were insincere. But mostly smart-ass. ;)

    So hopefully, I won't offend anybody with my answer.

    And your answer for #1?? Is awesome. I'm such a geek for museum things. I think I would break in just to see the mummies. ;)

  4. I've never seen a Mummy! Insane, right? We're hoping to get stationed in the UK eventually so I can go to the London museum like every single weekend and see some mummies!

  5. Woohoo Wisconsin! I hear you on being over the snow, however, this insanely hot summer in Virginia is KILLING me! Like I said in my post, Hubs is from Tampa and we plan to retire in Florida, but I really hope we can afford to live somewhere else in the summer! Right now, I am so over the heat!

  6. Great illegal activity! If I were to steal anything from a musuem it would be the ruby slippers at the smithsonian :)

  7. Call your mom when you go to the museum so I can go along. I also thought you loved molasses cookies the best. I will remember next time I bake for you.

  8. Oh, I DO love molasses cookies the best when it comes to cookies. BUT I love the recipe for chocolate chip cookies because its unique compared to other recipes.

  9. I love the "don't steal my money, biatch!" That's hilarious!
