Military Spouse Fill In

I saw this on Monica's page at The Musings of Lil Moo Moo and thought I would give it a shot. I hope you all enjoy!!!!
1. How did you and your spouse meet? 
We actually met on eHarmony. He winked at me, but I didn't respond right away because I was out of the country on a trip. I responded to him when I got home, we chatted on the phone (after he gave me his number and told me he "wouldn't hold his breath" waiting for me to call) then decided to meet up that night. Two of my girlfriends were kind enough to accompany me. We met in person and started dating. I like to say that we met and he never left. :) 
2. How old were you when you two met? 
We were both 25
3. How long have you been together? 
We have been together almost 4 years. We met in 2008, got engaged in 2008 then got married in 2009.
4. Where are you and your spouse originally from? 
I am originally from Michigan and he is from Ohio, but he spent most of his youth in Florida.
5. How did you feel about him joining the military?
He was already in the military when we met.
6. Where did your spouse go to Basic Training? 
Fort Benning, Ga.
7. Has your spouse ever been deployed?
Yes. We are currently going through our first deployment
8. Ever been to his promotion ceremony? 
 Sadly no. I didn't know him when he graduated basic or AIT. He did get his 1LT promotion recently, but it was over in the sandbox so I obviously couldn't be there.  
9. How long have you been a military wife? 
Almost 3 years, since June 2009
10. Did you marry him before or after he joined? 
11. How did your husband propose? 
He proposed on the beach Thanksgiving weekend.

12. Where did you get married? 
 Our first wedding was at the court house, the second was at Plantation Golf and Country Club
13. How old were you two when you got married? 
 28 and 27
14. Did he wear his uniform on his wedding day? 
15. Where are you and your spouse currently stationed? 
We are not stationed anywhere because he is in the Reserves. We live in Venice, Fl and sadly there isn't a base that close to us (other than McDill AFB which is about an hour and a half away)
16. Do you live on base? 
17. How long were you married when you had to go through your first separation? 
8 months before he left for BOLC at Ft. Leonardwood.
18. What is your favorite base so far? 
I don't really have one. I haven't lived near one and only have visited two so far. I will say I wasn't a huge fan of Ft. Leonardwood and Ft. Bliss was ok.  
19. Do you think your spouse looks good in his uniform? 
20. Do you think military life is more advanced than civilian life? 
I'm not really quite sure how to answer this question 
21. Do you like the benefits you receive as a military dependent? 
I think they are pretty good
22. Do you have a lot of military wife friends? 
Not really. I have one good one who lives near me. But I feel like I have met some pretty awesome people through this blog.  
23. What is the hardest part of the military life? 
I would have to say the inability to plan stuff, the worry and anxiety about their safety, the loneliness and watching the kids miss their daddy 
24. Do you own military wife stuff?
Yes I have two stickers for my car, one magnet for my classroom, and two army wife shirts, plus a few army things that I have "acquired" from my husband :)
25. Do you support your spouse as a member of the military? 
Absolutely 110% :)

To all of my blog followers, I tag you! If you decide to do this, please send me a message or write a comment so that I can visit your page and learn about you and your honey. :) Thanks!


  1. Yay! I loved reading this! :)
    I also just "followed"... I thought I already had? Maybe it didn't go through or something..

    This whole deployment thing is no fun is it? haha. We can do it though!
    Also- noticed we have a few more similarities besides both of us going through our first deployment! My hubby will soon make 1LT, and he also went to basic at Ft. Benning!

    Loved reading~ & thank you for the shout out!

    1. Awww thanks for following me! :) This deployment thing really does stink, but yes you are right, we can do it.
      That's awesome that your husband will be making 1LT soon!

  2. I did one of these too! I love all of your answers <3 I saw your comment on Moomoo's blog, and I was wondering if you could send me the number for the shipping boxes, too? My hubby deploys next month :(

    1. Aww I'm sorry to hear your husband will be leaving soon! I'm here if you need anything, even if it's just someone to tell "this sucks" and understands. :) I look forward to getting a chance to read your blog and learn more about you! :)
