This is a photo of my son being taught how to drive a stick shift by my hubs Commanding officer in his Mustang Shelby just because its important for a man to know how to use a stick shift and we don't have any cars with a stick. This is why I love Marines. We are all family. We all look out for one another.

Thank you to Wife of a Sailor once again...I am so sad I missed the secret santa..I love secret santa and I don't know how I wasn't in the loop. I look forward to hearing all about all of you lucky folks that are participating.
1.If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs – such as food and water – were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?
My hubs and my son...if I had them I would have everything. But it would be unfair to my son since he'd be bored..but that is my answer and I'm sticking to it.
2. If you were a salad, what kind of dressing would you have?
Ceaser for sure..
3. If you had to live on a ranch, what kind of animals would you raise/own?
If I had to live on a ranch I'd be screwed. I am a city girl born and raised, and I would have no clue what to do with farm animals. I could have a herd of cats and dogs.???
4. If your life was was portrayed as a movie, who would you choose to play you and your significant other?
Wow that is a tough one. I'm not sure??? It would have to be someone no nonsense for me like Angelina Jolie...not that I look anything like her but she seems to shot straight and so do I. I am not brutally honest, I think that term is just an excuse to be rude, I am honest and if you ask me my opinion you'll get it but I don't feel like being honest needs to be brutal. So, as far as someone that could come across as strong and soft ya I'd pick her..again the looks not so much. My hubs is one of a kind and I couldn't think of anyone to play him that could pull off his charm. He is the most wonderful human being I have ever met, smart, sexy and confident. If I had to pick one person probably Will Smith since they are both hilarious. And I have always said my hubs was the white Will Smith.
5. What was the last thing you put a stamp on (envelope, duh, but what was in the envelope)?
My sons car payment. Can you believe in this day and age there is still a company that has no online paying option..yep, check and stamp and envelope...crazy.

“I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.”

Ok so it's been awhile since I have participated in the Milspouse Friday Fill-In and it's about time to get back. It's a wonderful idea and if you would like to visit the wonderful Mil-Spouse that has started it please go visit her blog , if I haven't thanked Wife of Sailor I am doing it now!
1. A different twist on last week’s question. This week, the first question is: what’s the nicest thing a MILSPOUSE has ever done for you? (brought to you from navy_smurfette)
I can't really narrow it down to any one thing because I have been around a while and have had some wonderful friends that have done some wonderful things for me. Probably the best would have to involve child care in a pinch when my son was young and I worked. It's always nice when you are in a bind to have someone that is willing to get your child to school or pick them up and watch them when you have to work late or take them to practice. Those are the nicest things that I can think of. Nothing has ever been as important to me as caring for my son so anyone that has reached out to help me has been a god send.
2. How often do you drive faster than the speed limit?
Living in the states I never drive over the speed limit. The last thing my husband needs is to see my name on the blotter. Yes ladies, if your name appears on the blotter it can hurt your hubs. At the very least it can lead to a nice ass chewing for them so try to stay off it. I did speed on occasion in West Africa but I don't know if that counts because can your really speed if there aren't any posted speed limits?
3. Did you have a nickname in school? If so, what was it?
If I did I never knew it. I was super tall so my cousin used to call me the Jolly Green Giant of Kensington but no one else ever did.
4. If your life was a book, what would the title be and how would it end?
What a great questioning. Let's see....maybe..From Trials to Triumph? I didn't always have an easy life, but really how many people do? I firmly believe it isn't how you start it's how you finish. My life is amazing now, I am loved by my husband and son and the feeling is mutual let me tell you. I hope it would end with me sitting on a porch swing after a long day of playing with my grandchildren, possibly great grandchildren watching my husband walking them to the car when my son comes to pick them up and just drifting off to sleep with a huge smile on my face with a heart full of love.
5. Look back (in your planner if you have one) to September 14th… what did you do that day?
LOL I have no planner, I have a calendar on my cell phone and I am pretty sure I probably was at the gym, maybe food shopping..not really sure since my cell phone is upstairs and it's really early Sat morning and I don't want to go wake the hubs..lol.
