Welcome to My Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009
It's Here! The Ultimate Blog Party! Join the fun from March 20-27!

Hi, thanks for stopping by!
Scroll down and listen to some of my favorite music!

If your new here, let me introduce myself:
I'm "Mrs. Marine" I'm a stay at home Mom. Hubby has been in for 7 1/2 years now. We just had our 7 year anniversary! We have two children, Princess is almost 6 and Bobo is almost 2.
We are in the process of reenlisting and will soon be sent to our 3rd duty station. Hubby will be retiring after 20 years in the Marine Corp - were going all the way.
Stick around and browse through my blog and leave me a comment so I can make sure to visit you as well!

I have a fun comment game I have seen several times around the blogosphere. Sorry I do not remember where I saw it first, its been a while... (You do not have to be participating in the Blog Party to play)

Comment game: BLOG MY BLOG
I will ask a question. The first person that comments, please answer my question. Once you’re done, include a question for the next visitor to answer. It can be any kind of question or even fill in the blank sentence. This is a family blog, so please keep it clean.
Then the next commenter will answer the question from the previous comment and then think up something for the next person (if someone forgets to leave a question answer mine).

Q: Do the monsters live under your bed or in the closet?

Mrs. Marine



  1. GREAT blog... VERY colorful. I'm so glad you get to be a homestay Mama!!! ^_^ It's hard work, but SO important and joyful. Don't you think?

    In answer to your question:
    We co-sleep, so our bed is only a mattress on the floor. That leaves NO room for monsters to hide. (Of course, that's not a good enough reason for my imaginative 5 year old to give up on the idea of monsters under her bed, which is a box spring and mattress directly on the floor!) So, they must needs be in the closet. I hate that! I hope they are the reformed kind from the end of Monsters Inc!!! ^_^

    (I think I'm going to use this game! Hope you don't mind. It's totally cool!!! ^_^)

    My turn.

  29. Hi, I'm next on the question train

    Dinner is my favorite meal of the day. We've always made a habit of eating our evening meal together. Besides the time together, most other meals for us tends to be much more casual and thrown together, while dinner is more likely to be planned, slightly more elaborate, etc.

    For the next commenter:

    If you could re-live one day in your life, what would it be?
