a SAHW AFW of an A1C. haha. oh me.

Honestly, being a military wife is just like being a regular wife. I promise. We rarely even discuss the military. He has amazing hours (better than civilian hours), and there are zillions of "perks." He goes in around 730 and is home by 410, and he comes home for lunch. It really doesn't get any better.

Soon, I will compile a list of my top 10 favorite aspects of being an Air Force wife. But, until then, I'm doing a little surveys.. because, well, they're fun. And, if I were a "normal" person, I would find this all a little interesting.

1. How long have you been a military wife? almost a year!

2. What branch of service is your husband? Air Force

3. Active/Reserve? Active

4. What is his job? Electrical Systems (read: electrician)

5. How many deployments have you gone through? 0.. thankfully!

6. ACU's or Class A's on your man? Um, what? I suppose they're asking if I like him in ABUs or his blues? I prefer ABUs :] oh yes.

7. What do you like about being a military wife? I love being married to Mark, and he just so happens to be in the military.. so there you go!

8. Do you live on base? we live in privatized housing, so.. yes. but it isn't on base.

9. What is your favorite base so far? Langley.. Our only base!

10. What's the hardest part of the military life? Air Force wives.

11. Do you go to the grocery store or commissary? we go to grocery stores 3/4 of the time, and the commissary 1/4 of the time.

12. Do you work or stay at home? stay at home.. just like all of my friends!

13. Do you have a lot of military wife friends? only online (note: the lady I stole this from said "NO!!" in all caps.. hilarious!!)

14. Do you prefer Walmart or the PX/BX/MCX/NEX? they're both equally bad for different reasons, but I guess Walmart.

  2. haha. I love it 90% of the time, and 10% of the time it has its.. "moments" .. ;] butttt Mark is going to Pennsylvania for a week in February, and we're 98% sure that I can come for free! So.. free vacation! Yay!! :) Now that's what I'm talking about!

  3. Hey! Just found you on here. :) I'm a new Air Force wife as well. I love your blog!

  4. Not all your friends! :-P Unless I'm not a friend cause I definitely work full time.

  5. the "are you friends with other military wives" question made me laugh :-P i swear, the drama that military wives get involved in can be so much worse than highs school!! it's sad!!! hahaha... but i guess in a way, it's nice to know that Navy wives aren't the only crazy ones out there! sounds like the Air Force has it's share of crazies too! :-)
