After a long day of swimming at the neighbors house, my kids are asleep and I'm catching up on laundry. What better to do than a survery?!

1.How long have you been a Military Wife? Almost 6 years! AAHH!

3. What do you like about being a Military Wife? The Pride I have for my husband.

4. Do you live on base? Hell to the no, we will never live on base.

5. What is your favorite base so far? Okinawa Japan was our favorite duty station although I love Tampa too.

6.What's the hardest part of the military life? watching my husband walk away too many times and having to explain his absence to our crying kids.

10. Do you prefer wal-mart or the BX/PX? Neither, they both suck. Target is where it's at.

17.Have you ever done combatives with your husband? Of course....what military wife hasn't been a test dummy?

whats a motard?

Lindsey and Co said...

Motard - A super over-motivated Marine. Symptoms include : wearing USMC tshirt in his off time, decorating his house with USMC stuff, talking about nothing but the USMC. You get the picture. Usually new Marines are motards...but luckily it wears off after a few years. :)
