I know I've been AWOL here for a while so I'll play.

1. What branch are you married to?
Air Force
2. How long have you been married?

14 years, Anniversary's 28October

3. How many kids to you have?
2 One boy 13 and girl 11
4. Any pets?
Nope
5. Where are you currently stationed at?

RAF Mildenhall, UK
6. What is your favorite duty station?

Don't really have one yet but if I had to pick I'd say Kadena AB, Okinawa, Japan

7. What do you like best about being a military wife?

The travel, hands down. I've been to more countries than I care to think about. My kids have already been on 4 out of the seven continents before they were teenagers. Since we live overseas our vacations almost always last at least a month! My kids have only attended schools with DoDDs sowheneverthere is a federal holiday everybody is off which makes it easier to plan those trips.I also love the fact that I can be homeor at school with my children when they need me and when their dad is away, I can honestly sayit's because of the military that I am able to do that.

8. What duty station did you hate the most! lol!
Can't say I hated it but Malmstrom AFB, Montana. I hated that they didn't have a Wal-Mart when we were there. I also thought the town was too small for my taste and I don't really care for outdoorsy type stuff which is pretty much all they have there in the way of most activities. But on the plus sidemy son was born there which made our time there very short due to his asthma not mixing well with the weather there. We were outta there in less than 18 months. So thatmakes him the best souvenir ever to have from there.
9. What do you do for a living?
Ido some of everything, lol. I promote local military and small businesses in our community, I also co-own with my daughter a brand called Spoiled Military BRATS which I hope will one day be in all the girls dept at least the AAFES stores. I am also the churchadministrator of the ministry myhusband and Iare plantingtogether.
10. If you have a Home Business, what is it &amp; how long have you been doing it?

Currently two home businesses, both of them I've been doing for about a year now.

11. What does your hubby do?

Information assurance (Intelligence) They keep track of most of the stuff you learn from the news a few things you don'thttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gifPlus a lot of information management like if someone is downloading porn or hacking etc. at work they also handle those type things too. I have a love/hate realtionship with his job becuase everything is so top security they neverlet anybody in there except at Thanksgiving. Idubbed them, The Firm several years ago.I joke with him all the time about our computers,phones and house being bugged. He also does troubleshooting on computers and is about to become anordained minister so when we retireour secondphase will already be established.

12. What is your favorite football team??

Don't watch it.
