Like all of you, I'm a number of things to a number of people...Navy wife, homeschooling mama, educated woman and aspiring writer. Read my thoughts on all of it here. Please feel free to leave your thoughts on all of it too!

Friday Fill-In #27


1.What do you usually want to know about someone when meeting them for the first time?
Honestly, I don't think I want to know anything specific the first time I meet someone.  I just want to visit, let the conversation flow.  But the second meeting...that's when I start to pry!  Not really.  But based on what happened at the first meeting, I may have some follow up questions at future meetings. 


2.Would you rather know everything about your spouse, or be regularly surprised?
Can I say both?  Scott and I grew up together, there isn't much we don't know about each other.  But there are still surprises as we grow even more, together and individually.  I like knowing we can always discover new things and have a solid foundation together.

3.If you could live in one city for the rest of your life, where would you live?
Isn't that the million dollar question?  Scott and I have thrown around many ideas and still don't know where we'll retire to after his Navy career is over.  We're not even sure when that will be...but that's another question.  There are things we love about Washington and talk about retiring here.  The one big thing it's missing here, though, is family.  And we like our family...so we'll probably head back to New York.  We may settle someplace in the Rochester to Syracuse to Adirondacks area...is that specific enough?

4.When you go out of town, what one material thing do you ALWAYS take?
my purse? 

5.Using no more than 10 nouns, and ONLY nouns, describe yourself.
I really like this twist on describing myself.  Let me see...
wife
mother
daughter
sister
blogger
planner
supporter
friend
teacher
learner

As always, go see what everyone else has to say...

I love your answer to #2. I think it's both too. And I almost said my purse to #4 too. That's definitely something that goes everywhere with me! And wasn't #5 hard? I'm so used to describing myself in adjectives. I can't wait to see everyone's answers to that one.

Have a great weekend!

#3 was a tough one to answer - there are so many places I'd love to live, it's hard to narrow it down to one. Now that I think about it, I'm torn between a city and a village so I'm not sure I even addressed the question properly! We took orders each time (four times now) to a different part of the country (although the Navy confined us to the East Coast and Midwest) and we hit a winner on number four - New England. We love it here. I guess if I had to pick a city, it would be Boston. It's so beautiful there.

Just stopping by to wish you and your little ones a great weekend.

Definitely true with #1. Unless there is a really specific reason for meeting the first time, that meeting is usually just so casual. The second meeting though, yeah, be prepared to answer some questions :)

We love your answers to number one! It means you are a good listener! Look forward to reading more next Friday. Cute blog. One of us is near the Adirondacks and it's COLD now, you might want to be more south...
