  1. How funny we are both Ingrids…it MUST be the Navy spouse thing. lol How are you?? How’s the weather in WA? I see you guys got a lot of snow.

    OH!! I keep forgetting to mention this… I *think* you know someone I *know*… Dawn? I’ve posted with her for years on a military spouse board!

  2. I took and published this on my blog. I was a Bette. Also, not a Marilyn or a Jackie. I would have loved to be a Jackie, but I am definitely not soft spoken — dang! Loved reading about you though. There is a lot of me in yours as well.
