Sorry all!

Work is kicking my butt the past few days (and we now have tighter internet restrictions which reeeeeally inhibits the blogging ability :P ) and things have been crazy! And I am still healing nicely.

We may get an answer on Ryan's re-enlistment package by the end of next week. Keep your fingers crossed for us pleeeeease.

Also, send me questions! I don't think I got any in my last post... but I loved your answers! Thank you so much. They definitely made me laugh for some. And I got some new blogs to follow in the process. But ask questions! I would love to do an answer post. Anything, married life, the marines, Disney, acting... go on!

As for my give away.... any takers? Ideas? I am still two away from two hundred and would love to do something special for you all.

Join in at Wife of a Sailor!

1. During military separations (whether short or long) how do you keep yourself positive and motivated?

Well you all are going to throw rocks at me but since we have been married we haven't had one yet! *knock on wood* When Ryan was deployed and we were dating however I was working for an opera and then in Disney World... so I kept myself distracted. I had my USMC pride stuff, shirts and sweatshirts from his platoon, and I emailed him every single day.

2. What is your favorite concert you have ever been to?

Josh Groban <3 Haha yea I am a dork. Coldplay was fun too.

3. What do you miss most about your “hometown”?

I am from the country of Jersey. I miss seeing the stars at night, the quiet, the lack of cars... it is very different living in the city! I still walk every where, even down to the river, but this river in VA is a tad different from the one in NJ! I miss my family and being close to them. I also miss the church I grew up in and was married in. I don't think I will ever find another one quite like it. My mom works there and it feels like a second family to me. I miss it!

4. If you could run in any race, which charity would you choose to support?
I've been dying to do the Breast Cancer three day walk for the cure, it is a goal of mine to do that some day.

5. You find out Willy Wonka is your father, what 3 course meal do you INSIST he create in that stick of gum?

First course - Potato soup
Second course - Amazing cheeseburger and fries
Third course - Chocolate mousse with strawberries

Don't forget to join the weekly round up at Three Hands Full!

Also sending love and prayers to Japan and the devastaing damage there. I've been watching CNN all day at work, it is heartbreaking. I was very worried until I heard from one of my besties in Hawaii this morning but she and her family are fine.


  1. Ive been to see Josh too! Amazing he was. I love your 3 course meal gum! Cute post.

  2. I love your Willy Wonka answers. Mmm, all that food sounds amazing.

  3. I would totally steal your gum from you constantly. Just reading that made me hungry!
