The Most UnFriday Friday Ever

It was 75 degrees today. Sunny. Gorgeous. I went outside for lunch and that is about it sadly. Today was so hectic at work. The phones were exploding, packages came like crazy, tours were in, invoices had to be mailed, mail had to get scanned, cookies baked (we do it every Friday), and it was just nuts. Ugh. I ended up being at work late only to come home and have Ryan gone since he has duty. What does my Friday night entail you ask? Waiting around for Comcast! Ryan tried to install the box but no dice. We called three times, waited on hold for ages, and now someone has to come out to the house to actually do it. So hooray Friday night for me!


At least I ordered Ryan his birthday cake for Monday. For being so not into birthdays he was awfully picky about his cake! :P Haha. I am glad to do something, anything for him! We will hopefully go to the shooting range tomorrow as per his request. Boys.

Now onto my Friday Fun...

Join in over at Wife of a Sailor

1. What is your favorite MilSpouse blog (not including Wife of a Sailor who we all love, or your own)?

Oh geeze. Look at the page on the top of my blog that says Blogs I Love. That should answer your question. I read tons of them!!!!

2. What are your favorite perks about your s/o being deployed (we all know there are perks)?

Long phone calls. When we're together a phone call consists of "Are you home? Oh, ok. On your way can you get insert random thing here?" It is great to have those long talks where your phone grows hot against your cheek. Sure in person is better, but this is special in a different way. I guess the only other one that comes to mind is not having to fight over what is on tv.

3. How long did you date your before getting engaged? Married?

We met in March of 2008. We started dating May 8, 2008. We got engaged December 10, 2009 and then married on May 1, 2010... almost two years to the day (a week short!) of our first date.

4. What do you think your would do if s/he wasn’t in the military?

He would be in the FBI, CIA, or some type of Law Enforcement or security. Sensing a theme here?

5. If you could talk to the Secretary of the Marines what is one suggestion you would like to bring to their attention in order to improve the lives of military families?

Communication. I know there is only so much you can tell us about certain things but by golly I feel like sometimes you are keeping information that does not need to be kept for security purposes but just to dangle the piece of cheese in front of the mouse! Also, I noticed spouse programs are becoming more regular, but it would be nice if some of them could be not during the day so if you do happen to have a job you can still attend and meet people!

And don't forget to join the round up over at The Whole Famdamily.

This week's theme is LOVE:
I don't have photoshop but I used Piknic to play around with these a little bit...

This is the one I am submitting, that was the hardest hug of my life thus far.

And this was from our first ball and for fun,. I just thought it was cute that you can see it even back then. And he was totally singing to me.... just like he did during the first dance at our wedding. (:


  1. Hi! I'm a new reader, over from the weekly round up. I was reading what you would say to the Secretary of the Marines and I was so surprised that all your spouse programs are during the day! That sucks. Most of ours are in the evening so that everyone can come.
    Anyway, I'll definitely be back to read more.
