I'll answer your questions:

I'm a Navy wife who randomly stumbled upon your blog. I don't remember how I got here...probably from another milspouse blog:) Since it's your blog, I think you should post about whatever you want! I've been blogging for about 8 months. I didn't think I was going to take to it when I started but I did! I enjoy it a lot more than I thought I did. Something fun about myself? Bones is my new favorite tv show...I love that I can stream it on Netflix:)

Hey KK,

I am a follower, have been for some time now but I am so bad at commenting. I often read blogs on my phone while waiting at a doctor's office or waiting for class to start and I can't comment from the phone. I then try to remember to go back but... well, life happens. Anyway, I starred this post so I would remember to come back.

All right, on to the questions.

I am a fellow military wife, I found you online through one of the blog hops I believe. My husband is Navy also, but he's on some IA assignment with the Army so this deployment is a lot longer than I'm used to.

I love reading you blog, I can't think of anything I want to see less of. It's perfect!

I've only been blogging since March of last year, I have been reading blogs longer but only recently started my own.

Something fun about myself, hmmmm. Well, I'm a fellow New Englander. My husband and I were born and raised here but spent the majority of our marriage in other states. We moved back home when he went reserves; never expecting him to be mobilized. So, now I'm here, struggling to get through another deployment only this time I have no military spouse support. Since I don't live near the base I can't go to meetings or anything. That's why I depend on this blog so much; to help keep my sanity.

Maybe one day we could meet up since we aren't really all that far from each other (relatively speaking).

Anyway, keep up the good work on the blog, and congrats on the milestone. Talk with you soon.

1 & 2. I am a Navy Submariner's girlfriend attending grad school in CT who stumbled on your blog this spring while journeying through our first deployment. I didn't really know anybody in the sub community, so I blog hopped and found yours! It really has blessed me to read about your life in the sub world! (and your adventures with your family in CT! Paul's Pasta is a favorite of mine now too! Went on one of my first dates there, and now have driven the 50 minutes to take all visiting family members there for a taste experience!)
3. & 4. Personally, I like the mix you have on your blog. I'm excited to start reading the books once I graduate and have free time!
5. I've been blogging since I moved up to CT and started grad school about 2.5 years ago. Blogging for me comes in waves. I did research in Kenya last winter/spring and that was a huge blogging season for me. You can check out my blog at:
6. Something fun - I just cut my hair REALLY short. Well at least really short for me. It's just below my chin. Here's to hoping I can style it too look nice tomorrow.

I am a Navy wife blogger and I found through one of the blog hops. I am still new to the blogging work but I think you should talk about whatever you want it! As for something fun about myself...I am a SAHM going through my first deployment. That doesn't sound like to much fun though lol

1. I was a navy girlfriend for 2 years until my now fiance was discharged.
2. I think I clicked "next blog" over and over again looking at fun new blogs until I randomly found you. I felt like I could relate to some of your info so I kept reading!
3/4. You do whatever you want on your blog! That's what a blog is for!
5. About a year?
6. I love sushi but I have a weird fear of seaweed when it's actually in the ocean. Also, although I'm a dentist, spit totally grosses me out. EWWWW.

1. Who are you?
I'm a Navy wife in the making.

2. How did you find my blog?
When my fiance and I were talking about him enlisting I researched a lot of what I can about the Navy, but needed to research about how the wives go through it. I made a blogger to follow you.

You're blog is wonderful as it is.
And plus it's your blog, do what you wish =].

4. What do you want to see less of on my blog?
Nothing, you do a good job maintaining it.

5. How long have you been blogging?
I've been writing on different journal/blogging sites off and on for 7 years.

6. Tell me something fun about yourself!
I like to crochet. I am not a pro but you can say I'm an advanced beginning. I'm working on making a granny loopy flower afghan. And I collect journals. I have about 20 different journals.
