Friday Mil-Spouse Fill In

Its been a while since I have been able to do the Friday Fill-In, and I am super excited to be able to participate today! Here we go!

1.What is the best gift you have ever received or given?

The best gift I have ever given would be, a place for a couple to stay after the deployment. we had known this soldier a while, and he got married over MAX leave, and when the guys redeployed his wife wanted to come out and be here for the home coming, so we openned our little home to them, they stayed with us almost a month. I was happy that we were able to give them time together, and he was able to come home to someone.
Best gift I have ever received...... recently my mom gave me a camera... Its an old school camera that takes 35 MM film, but it has sentimental value to me. My Mom use to have her own photography buisness. She did weddings, quinces, Senior photos, you name it she did it. And as part of my up brining I was her assistant. I carried her equiptment, and set up her tripod, reloaded cameras and batteries.... Anyways, recently she gave me one of her cameras, and it just reminded me of all the fun we had together, and without even realizing it, she taught me another trade.

2.Do you celebrate holidays differently when your loved one is deployed/gone or do you keep tradition?
While he is gone I dont decorate. I dont want to have to drag everything up from the basement by myself, only to have to drag it back down by myself. So I bought a little 5.00 Christmas tree and me and the kids make due with that.

3.If you celebrate Christmas, do you put an angel, star or something else on the top of your tree?
We have both and put up whatever we are in the mood for that year. I am still looking for an awesome angel though, the current one we have doesnt do anything special, we bought it at AAFES the first year we were here.

4.What are your three favorite websites? My three favorite websites:, and ( I am a shoe fanatic)

5.On your man do you prefer… boxers, briefs or boxer briefs? Or commando?
Commando of course!! LOL!!!

I think sentimental gifts are the best. Presents are always nice, but when they have real meaning behind them...then they are special!
