It's time for another installment of question Friday! I'm not going to ramble on today because I'm trying to eat my frosted mini wheats and type in between bites. I, unlike The Hubble, do not like them to get crazy soggy. So here we go.
We'll start with the Milspouse Friday Fill-In hosted by Wife of a Sailor.
1. Besides the horizontal mambo, what do you miss most when your spouse is deployed?
Each time it's something different but usually has to do with taste or smell. The first one was the taste of beer and cigarettes. I actually smoked for a bit and started loving beer when he was gone that time. This last time it was the smell of his cologne.
2. What do you miss the least?
I am having a lot of trouble thinking of something right now. There are tons of stuff that annoy me about him but I love him because of those things and cherish the time he's home. I guess the thing that I missed the LEAST would have to be the procrastination. When it was just me, things would get done on MY time line. Now I feel like I should be able to shared the responsibilities and household duties but I usually have to wait on his time line for them to get done (if I want his help).
3. You only get three crayons to finish your picture... which three do you choose and why?
Well...I would probably choose slut red, cool teal, and princess purple because those are the colors I wish I could use on my house. But alas, I'm just renting for a year and cannot paint. BTW, slut red (dining room), cool teal (kitchen), and princess purple (Little Butt's room).
4. If you could have your own fragrance, what would it be called?
I am so incredibly UNoriginal so I would probably name it something like "Essence of Manna." Eeeeewww. That actually sounds kind of gross. Maybe "Manna from Heaven" because I just love that saying. Manna is my nickname by the way.
5. If the shoes make the man (or woman), what do your shoes say about you right now?
Haha! I'm wearing flip flops. This actually says that I'm a terrible housewife! I wake up and put my flip flops on so I don't have to get dirt on my feet from my nasty floors. LOL! Maybe I shouldn't have said that out loud...oh well.

Now it's time for...
Five Question Friday with Mama M. over at My Little Life.
1. What were your school colors?
Oh goodness! Do you know how hard this is for an Army Brat to answer?? The last high school I attended had blue and yellow as their colors. The first college was blue and orange. The college that I earned my degree from was maroon and gold. LOL! Does that count?
2. What's the best compliment you ever received?
Probably that I'm a great mom. I had so many problems with being pregnant and the idea of being a mom that I'm usually really relieved when someone tells me I'm a good mom.
3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?
I buy Quilted Northern. The Hubble and I used to argue over this all the time! He loved Cottonelle and I loved Quilted Northern. Well, after this last deployment he decided he hated Cottonelle. So yay! I win!
4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?
No. I think it's a cool idea but I've never gotten the chance to be part of one...at least not that I can remember.
5. What is the one material possession that you "can't live without"?
Well...it's my library. I know that's a bunch of items but I think I would be lost without my library of books. If my house ever catches on fire I'm done for!
