Something you may not know about my husband and me is that we are quite witty and have been known to communicate entirely in movie quotes.  In fact, if you pay complete attention to what’s coming out of our mouths when we get going on a rant, you will hear more than one direct quote from a handful of movies.  Many of our friends also have this talent (if you can call it a talent) and when we’re all together it gets all kinds of crazy.  Some of the most loved (and therefore quoted) movies include but are not limited to Dumb ‘n Dumber, Tommy Boy, Goonies, The Other Guys, Princess Bride, Wayne’s World, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Zoolander, and well pretty much anything with Chris Farley, Will Ferrell and any other former SNL cast member. It’s pretty impressive, actually.

As soon as we announced our first official duty station, I was wondering when people would start making references to another one of our most loved movies.


 I think that it’s pretty awesome that we’ll be stationed in San Diego, which we all know to be German for certain special parts on female whales.  Sweet Lincoln’s mullet!  I have felt like I’m locked in a glass case of emotion for about 6 months while being separated from my sailor.

When considering our new home, we are inspired to decorate it the way Ron Burgundy would.

I don’t know how to put this but I’m kind of a big deal.  It’s anchorwife, not anchorman.  And that’s a scientific fact.

You stay classy, San Diego.
