1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed?
It would probably be enjoying the moments I have with my family instead of always thinking of what has to be done. Most things do not have to be done right that minute and I need to learn to just enjoy those moments. Who knows when we will be separated again and missing out on those moments. I need to remind myself of this daily.
2. What was your favorite thing that happened in October?
Getting to go to Key West and Fantasy Fest with my husband. It was our first alone trip since he returned and it was much needed. I'm working on my post about it, but I am waiting for some more pictures before I post it. It was a TON of fun!!!!
3. What dish makes the Thanksgiving holiday for you? (Bonus points if you share the recipe.) - Courtesy of To the Nth
I think the turkey or the mashed potatoes. Those are my two favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving. I'm also a HUGE fan of crescent rolls.
We are having Thanksgiving at my dad's house this year, so I'm sure things will be a little different. I haven't had Thanksgiving with him in at least 5 years. It will be a nice change.
4. Check out my post from yesterday... will you be participating in the MilSpouse Secret Santa?
I am thinking about it. I love Christmas time and I think it would be fun. I just have to decide if I can make the time to do it or not.
5. What are you looking forward to in November?
I am looking forward to our first family vacation to Michigan since my husband's return. My dad is the President of his Safari Club and they take veteran's out hunting every year. My dad was able to get my husband a hunt and we are doing it over that week. I know M is really excited, seeing as he hasn't hunted in about 4 years. I am excited to see my family that still lives up there and for them to see our two beautiful babies. :) I'm not looking forward to the 20+ hour car ride, but hopefully they will sleep most of the way.
Oh I guess I should mention I'm excited for my birthday. Normally I am REALLY excited for my birthdays, but this year I am turning the dreaded :gulp: 30 years old, I'm not looking too forward to it. :( Hopefully it won't be that bad.
Please check back soon for some posts about Fantasy Fest and Halloween! :)
