MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #17

It's Friday!  I took the day off of work today to get caught up on school stuff, and much to my dismay the website where I need to do my work is down for maintenance.  It is such a pain to be overseas sometimes, because convenient times for stateside maintenance are inconvenient for me.

So, without further ado, it is...

1. What are some things on your bucket list? (from New Girl on Post)

I don't really have a bucket list, and am fortunate to have done the huge things that I have always wanted to do early in life (such as live overseas, see Europe, etc.), but I guess there are a few more things out there.  I would really like to visit Asia, get my Master's Degree, swim with dolphins, master a new talent, see a Miami Dolphins game in Miami (I know, I know...go Phins!), and own a home.  This makes me want to create a bucket list now!

2. How long have you been a MilSpouse and where have you been stationed so far? (from Raising Roscoe)

I have just been married for five and a half months now, so not very long.  I have only lived in my home state of Indiana and here in Germany.  I should be expanding that list in the summer, though!

3. What is a list of songs that sums up your life so far? (from Confessions of a Sailor’s Wife)

I can't say that there is really a list that I have.  I will say that the song "God Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts about sums up my love life, though.  Actually, it is Joel and I's song.  I have struggled a lot to figure out who I am and what makes me happy, and it took a long time for me to realize that I do deserve that "dream guy" that everyone always told me didn't exist.  I went through a lot of heartbreak to realize that settling doesn't make someone happy, and traveled down a broken road that let me straight to Joel.  I heart him.

4. What is your favorite kind of pizza?

Nothing will ever compare to the pizza here in Europe.  It is fabu, and I haven't been able to repeat it when I have visited the states.  I love just a good ole' pizza margherita, which is just cheese pizza.  Here in Europe it is so thin and so tasty, I want to take in the cheese, sauce, and crust, and not overwhelm with anything else.  My favorite pizza place back home is a tiny mom and pop place called Ballpark Pizza.  Simply delicious.  But I still stick to just cheese, please.

5. What are three good things in your life right now?
The first is my marriage.  Joel and I have had few growing pains, as I am sure that most couples do, but we are still madly in love in that honeymoon kind of stage.  He still calls me just to say he loves me, we still hold hands whenever we can and are always cuddling, and he sings to me at night when I can't sleep, and tells me how beautiful he thinks I am every morning.  I don't think I could love anyone more.

My family back home.  Even though we aren't very close, and I can't say that I miss them all of the time, we are a tight group that will always be there for each other.  My mom is stubborn as sin, my dad is stall a frat boy, and my sister is sweet and innocent as punch.  But, they are all good people and I have been blessed in my life to be affected by them.  For better or worse, they have made me who I am, and I couldn't imagine having any other family.

My friends.  I may not have a bazillion friends, but the ones that I do have, that I can actually consider true friends, are wonderful.  They are all different, but very caring and good people, and they add a lot to my life.  I feel truly blessed in general :)

I do like Okinawa, but I've only been here 2 weeks! It's pretty and not too busy. I'm getting more adventurous in going out by myself!
