MilSpouse Friday Fill-in #11

It's time for the Friday Fill-in again! I swear the days are flying by! It's already September, yay! Thanks to Wife of a Sailor for hosting.

  1. What is a weird/funny superstition that you have? (from A{muse}ing Mommy on a Pink Park Bench) My mother is the most superstitious person I know and I have adopted a couple of hers- spilled salt must be thrown over my left shoulder to ward off bad luck and if I have a bad dream, I cant talk about it until after breakfast or it might come true! haha, I know it's ridiculous, but even so, I cant help myself from doing them.
  2. What are your hopes and dreams for the years AFTER the military? After all, we aren't in it forever! (from Stetsons, Spurs and Stilettos) Settled in our dream house near the beach, 2-3 kids, me working as an APN/instructor and J doing something he loves. There are so many variables between here and there that it's difficult for me to think in specifics. I just know that I want to be settled somewhere, knowing that I dont have to move every 2-4 yrs. I like the feeling of being established. Oh, and of course we will still be traveling the world in our spare time! =)
  3. Since [this] month is National Apple Month (no really!), I'd probably ask: What is your yummiest apple recipe? (from NH Girl Displaced) I actually don't eat raw apples; they make me sick. I do however love cooked apples, so good old fashioned apple pie is my favorite! I am looking forward to spiced apple cider now that fall is here.
  4. How long have you gone as a military spouse without talking to your husband/wife during service? (from A Navy Princess and Her Little Sailors) Hmm....while he was deployed, I would say 4-5 days. We've been lucky enough to have decent internet connections and phone service.
  5. I occasionally watch When I was 17... on MTV. So, what was something that was significant about your 17th year of life? (fromAshley Amazing) We don't have MTV, so I have no idea what this show is! When I was 17 I: broke up with my high school boyfriend, graduated high school, moved into my very first apartment and started college. It was a very busy year!

Has anyone checked out the new stats feature on blogger? Natalia at Army of Two directed me to it. Very interesting stuff!

We will be checking out a couple of wine festivals this weekend, so I should have some good posts on wine next week!
Happy Weekend Everyone!

Wow! Raw apples make you sick? I've never heard of that, I love apple pie though so I'm with you on that answer. :)

Holy superstitions! I love it! Have a great weekend!

Natalia said...

I've never heard of raw apples making someone sick either. Is it the acidity? And I also love hot spiced cider! I bet there is some amazing cider in Germany!!

annoyed army wife said...

Oh, to be established. That's a nice dream...

Apple Cider is THE BEST!!! If you're ever at Starbucks and in the mood for something different, ask for an apple chai (With whipped cream and caramel on top OF COURSE!!). Best.thing.ever.!!!

We share the same dream superstition! I never talk about my dreams until after breakfast... unless I dreamt about winning the lottery. hehe ;)

If I give my kids too many apples in one day, they get sick.

I want to live by the beach too!
