milspouse friday fill-in.

1. What is the longest road trip you’ve ever taken?
Andrew and I drove about 8/9 hours from Colorado Springs to Kansas City, Missouri for his grandmother’s funeral. I drove the whole way, because, for the short while I tried being a passenger, I was so bored I thought I would die. We listened to books on tape (The Hobbit) and road trip playlists and ate a million snacks, including beef jerky (we pretended we were long-haul truckers). After about 5 hours I wanted to gouge my eyes out and, thus, made a vow I would never drive more than 5 ever again. True story.

2. Do you collect anything? Tell us a bit about it.
I collect Vera Bradley bags. I’ve loved them since sophomore year of high school, when I got my first purse- a Blue Toile Petite Villager. What ever happened to that purse!? Currently, I must have more than ten Veras, plus additional miscellaneous items on top of the purses.

3. What is your favorite part about being an adult?
Making my own decisions. Like deciding to get a dog or deciding to get my Dyson or deciding to buy two boxes of Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts, instead of just one. Doing whatever you want is pretty great.

4. What song brings a tear to your eye?
Butterfly Kisses. ….PYSCH. That song sucks. What really brings a tear to my eye is our wedding song- You and I (sung by Michael Buble, written by Stevie Wonderful). Remembering that day and missing my husband makes me sentimental.

5. Describe your first plane ride (how old you were, where you were heading, etc).
Who the heck can remember their first plane ride?? Maybe it was my first trip to Disney World? I was 7. I was airsick.

HAPPY FRIDAY, FRIENDS! My husband may or may not be coming home on R&R very soon, hence the crazy-business of my life. Which explains me forgetting to do last week’s MFF, so I’ll do that next. Don’t count on much blog consistency from me any time soon, but please do continue to love me.

Chai Lattes, hikes and fall colors,
