Military Spouse Friday Fill-in

Since yesterday was Veteran's Day I thought it would be fitting to do a Friday fill-in from Wife of a Sailors blog.

1. Were you named after anyone?

I was! my first name is my maternal grandmothers name an my middle name is my aunt's and one of my mom's dear friends middle name.
2. What color, if any, are your toenails usually painted?

They are usually a dark red. Well, they usually have some seriously chipped red polish on them. I get a pedicure once every 3 months or so and i hardly ever take the time to paint them in between. Maybe I should start painting my toes and pampering myself once in a while!
3. How do you flush a public toilet? Hands? Feet? Something else?

I actually avoid using public toilets t all costs! I will hold all day if I have to. In September The Hubs and I drove across the country and I had no option, but to use public toilets! I swear we found the grossest ones in the country!! if I have to use a public toilet I just flush with my hand, because I immediately wash my hands.
4. When you were a little kid, which TV character did you have a crush on?

Where to start! I had a huge crush on Fred Savage's character, Kevin Arnold, in The Wonder Years. He was so cute and I loved the character that he played. I also had a crush on Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Zachery Ty Bryan's characters in Home Improvement. They were SO cute!
5. Let’s say you had to lose one of your five senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell). Which one would you choose? Why?
I would have to say hearing. I love to cook and I love food! Losing my sense of taste or smell would be hard. Without smell, you can't really taste much and I like to taste my food. Without touch, know. Plus, when my husband hugs me, it can completely turn my day around. Without sight, there would be so many things I would be missing, though one of the brightest and most determined people I know is blind. He is 13 and I look up to him! Without hearing I could do almost anything that I enjoy. I would miss the sound of my husbands voice and I would like to hear my children's voices someday, but I would rather see their smiling faces.

Since yesterday was Veteran's Day I just want to say Thank you to my husband and to all those who have served, are serving and who will continue to serve our country! I am thankful for all you have done and continue to do. We, as a nation are lucky to have the brave men and women to protect us and our freedoms. My husband is the love of my life and my hero. Thank you babe, for your bravery and strength!

I dislike being called a military wife or a Marine wife because I am more than just a service members wife. There are so many parts that make me a whole and when people say military/Marine wife, I feel like the rest of me is being lost in what he does. This does not mean that I don't support his career, because it is just the opposite. I am so incredibly proud of him and what he does and will always support him 110%. What he does is amazing and he is amazing, but I am pretty amazing too.
