Borrowing from JulieAnn who borrowed from Ellen in the spirit of Bloghop....

Military Spouse Bloghop
Riding the Roller Coaster is hosting a Military Spouse Bloghop. What a fun way to find other military spouse blogs!

I'm Mama because I have 3 kids. I'm a military veteran. I'm a military spouse. Yes, I obviously at one point wore combat boots. They were in my basement, but suddenly have disappeared. I think my husband tossed them. He likes to purge. I keep things. I actually just went through my seabag the other day longingly looking at my old uniforms. I wondered. I wondered if I could still squeeze into them. I did a few years back. Then I ate cookies again. I think I will have to stop eating cookies.
My husband is an active duty Coast Guardsman. We have a lot of service rivalry in this house. I wasn't in the Coast Guard as you may have surmised by now.

We've been married for awhile. During that time we had three little ones. They are cute. They talk back. I don't like that.

I run (when I can - i.e. not in pain or when I am in really good shape). I dance too. Again, when things are good. Age and injury have gotten the better of me over the years. I'm making it my goal for the summer of 2010 to run a 5k by September. Let's see if I stick to it. I'm horrible with goals. I set them and don't follow through. Don't tell my husband I admitted that. He says that's the truth and I argue with him that it's not. It's just what I do.

Favorite things like JulieAnn....hmmmmmmm

Hi! Stopping by from the blog hop!

I'm a fan of Irish toasts...not entirely the same as Irish drinking songs, but they both involve alcohol.

Here's to you and yours
And to mine and ours.
And if mine and ours
Ever come across to you and yours,
I hope you and yours will do
As much for mine and ours
As mine and ours have done
For you and yours!
