This is my first go at it- with Friday Fill-In. It does look fun though! I was going to do this last night but completely passed out watching Grey's Anatomy! Yesterdays show was AMAZING! I'm so happy it's fall because of the awesome shows! Anyways, to the questions!

1. What characteristic about yourself has either been strengthened or weakened due to your experience as a Military Spouse? (from The Albrecht Squad)
Hands down it would have to be my ability to be independent. When bubby was deployed he was gone for 15 months. I was still living in my comfort bubble at my daddy's house. I never got out in to the "real world." Bubby's family lives in Arizona! The only time I was ever in the state was during layover to Mexico! 3 Weeks after bubby deployed, I got this crazy idea to MOVE to Arizona! I wasn't very close to his family and this was a good way to get to know them. I'm crazy! This 19 year old girl moving out of my comfort zone not knowing anything about the place. Granted we had gone down to see his family for 2 weeks. But 2 weeks was a whirlwind. I lived with one of his sisters friends whom I had met 1 time! He is now known as my brother. He took me under is wing and made sure that I was safe. His sister & I grew so close, she became my best friend. Although, it was hard being away from my famliy for 15 months, it was the best choice for me. I became able to be alone and was happy with it. The only person I relied on was myself. To this day my parents still think I'm crazy for doing it but I still maintain it was the best way for me to GROW UP!
2. What is your favorite vacation spot and why? (from ‘Tis the Life of the Army Wife)
I haven't really been to many vacation spots. But the one that I have been to and would love to go again is Acapulco, Mexico. I went there for my 17th birthday! It was THE BEST time of my life. It's gorgeous there! I saw the infamous cliff divers! Swam with dolphins, got saved by lifeguards (literally), went to the foam party. But the most crazy thing I did on that vacation was went bungee jumping! Have I mentioned that I am mortified of heights? Seriously, I start sweating, hyperventilate and even get hives. Yuck! Anyways I did it!
I still have the video from the jump, it's on VHS though lol. Now, if you Google "bungee jumping in Acapulco" you'll find "don't jump in Acapulco". I'm just glad that I survived!
