Wifey of a Sailor is hosting a MilSpouse Meme on Fridays. Check it out here.
- How did you and your spouse/significant other meet?
This is actually a funny story. One of my sorority sisters actually had a crush on him, but I am going to leave all the details out! Anyways it didn't really work out. So a few days before my 20th birthday she asked me about him. I said he was cute. I didn't know him. Which is crazy because we had all the same friends! So my friend goes up to him and tells him that I like him (WHAT!!!) and he should ask me out. At the time, I was working at Mazzio's pizza and he was working at a movie theater behind where I worked. On his way to work, he left a note on my car asking if I want to go out sometime and call him! The boy is lucky I called! I NEVER called a boy!! So I called him and he was at work and he calls me back at 1 a.m. SERIOUSLY!! So we said we would just meet up tomorrow because it was his Fraternity's Bid Day. Another crazy side note, I was on his Fraternity's Court of Girls and we STILL didn't know each other. So we ate lunch together that next day (On my birthday, he didn't know though!) and we decided we would go see a movie that next night. Maybe 2 weeks later he told me that he loved me! That was 10 years ago and we have been attached at the hip every since. Ok maybe not since he is gone a lot thanks to the AF!!
2. What is the best thing about being a MilSpouse?
Crying when saluting a flag or singing the Star Spangled Banner, seeing my 2 children with hands on heart at 5:00 on base, my heart skipping a beat when he calls during deployments, HOMECOMINGS, and having endless pride of my husband's job! And being married to a man that wears a uniform is just an added bonus!!
3. What is the hardest thing about being a MilSpouse?
Watching Tyler's and Landon's heart break when their Daddy is gone. It never gets any easier. It is also hard being far away from home and missing out on so much that is going on in our families' lives and vice versa.
4. What is your favorite dish?
OH this is hard, it depends on the day! But I would have to say anything Mexican!!
5. If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?
Provide more positive role models for our children.
