Get To Know You Sunday

I'm sure most of you are about to have a heart attack because I'm actually posting today! Please, don't! =) Sorry it's been a while, but we've been busy little tourists with my BIL here. He left last night, so things should get back to normal around here. Well, that is until our HHG arrive. It was a sad goodbye for my hubby and his brother. =( It will possibly be the last time they see each other for at least a year. He lives in AR near both of our parents. I will definitely see him, but it's possible that Joe won't. They cried, I cried, it was a teary moment. Anyway, you can expect a real post with lots of pictures later. I promise. =)

1.  Have you ever snooped around someone else's house?
Ooooh yes. I'm seriously bad about snooping in people's bathrooms. I used to do it while baby sitting (because, how are they gonna know, right?), but now I just stick to the bathroom while I'm in there. =)

2. Can guys and girls be friends? ( thanks Jen!)
Sure. It's never really worked out for me, but I know lots of girls who have guy friends.

3. Can you curl your tongue?

4. Have you ever stolen anything?
Maybe pens... =)

5. Would you rather talk on the phone or text?
It depends on who I'm talking to. I really like to text, but sometimes there's just no substitute for a good 'ole fashioned 2 hr phone call.

6. Memorial Day plans?
Nothing big. Hangin' out and relaxing with Joe.

7. What do you do to relax?
Watch a movie, something on TV, read, hang out at the beach, have a drink...

8. Do you do anything to honor those that have died fighting for our freedom?
This is my first Memorial Day as a military spouse. I don't think I ever really, truly realized the sacrifice those men (and women) and their families made until now. When I lived at home, we would grill out, have watermelon, and visit the cemetery to put flowers on family members' graves [not necessarily in that order]. We've always hung a flag because my Papa was a SSG in the Army before he got out. He served in the states, Germany, and was in the Korean War. My family has always been somewhat patriotic, but like I said, I never really understood it all. I would like to purchase a flag to hang at our house. I think the best way we can honor fallen soliders is to remember what they were fighting for and to continue to support our service members, whether we believe in the war we're fighting or not. Nothing irritates me more than people who are incredibly against our presence in the Middle East and don't support our troops. It doesn't matter why we're there (at least, not now anyway), what matters is that we support the men and women who are risking their lives to protect us.

Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Weekend!

It's incredible how people can be so mean. Our husbands are not the ones who decided how, when or why we are over there right now. They are just following the orders. I have had a couple run-ins with people who didn't get it. I wish they would just keep their snide remarks and looks of disapproval to themselves.

People don't need to be rude, I don't believe in the war but I am proud of the men and women that go over there to fight for what they believe in. No matter what you believe, people should always be supportive and thankful for what they do.

My brother met the guy who filmed the documentary "Fall from Grace" about Westboro Baptist church that is now boycotting military funerals.

He said it took more restraint than he thought he had because he wanted to just scream at them. People are ignorant at times, and don't even look at the big picture.

And P.S. I snoop in people bathrooms too. I also will change the direction of their toilet paper because it drives me bonkers. OVER!! :)
