Top Posts of 2013

As we kick off 2014, we thought we share some details to our top posts of 2013 by our spouse bloggers. These do not include posts about Resources, which also tend to be favorites. We’ll do a separate top 3 list highlighting resources. Here are the top 3 posts for 2013 by our milspouse bloggers [...]

Service Members: Underworked/Overpaid or Overworked/Underpaid?

Talk of military pay and benefits being cut has stirred something inside a lot of us. Something that makes us question our way of life, something that makes us believe that people think our Service Members are overcompensated for services rendered. Being a Navy spouse of 11.5 years, it shocks me that anyone would think [...]

Road Trip (Part 1)

  It has been a long time coming for the entire family to take a trip home to Texas.  My oldest daughter goes back to Texas at least twice a year, I go back once a year, and my husband makes it back whenever he can take leave. This year, we got extremely lucky. He [...]

Classy or Trashy?

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of Facebook pages/groups popping up in reference to military bf/gf/spouses and their behaviors. The main trend I’ve seen take off like a 747 is trashing those who take pictures in their bf/husband’s uniform. I honestly have no opinion about it, but I am shocked to see some of the [...]

This week has been extremely trying. I’ve been running around the house like a chicken with my head cut off trying to prepare for our car ride from Virginia to Texas. Usually, car rides are no big deal, but my husband wants to drive straight to Texas with a few stops for stretching and eating [...]

2013 has been a year of trial and error so far. I have not thought about babies since my seven-year old was born. Once she was potty trained, I looked forward and never once looked back. Well, now that A is here, I am learning as I go. To all of those that told me [...]

DIY Homemade Laundry Detergent

A good friend of mine loves to make her own household items and cleaning products because they are cheaper and healthier for her and her family. The first cleaning product she asked me to try was laundry soap. She knew how sensitive my daughter’s skin is, how grimy and dirty my husband’s work clothes can get, and how frustrating [...]

My Homecoming

The most exciting time of a deployment is homecoming. This deployment was my first, and I was super excited. My husband was supposed to come home after Thanksgiving, but plans changed due to the mission. His ship and several others had to turn around. The one thing my pregnancy has taught me is to roll [...]

Do you ever get into those moods where you feel like eating breakfast for dinner or brenner? In my house, brenner comes at least once a week. There is something about eating an omelet or french toast at the wrong hour of the day to make you feel like a college kid again. I blame [...]

Oh Baby

Since my delivery, life has kind of sped by me. I feel like if I blink anymore, my precious baby will be a grown woman running off to college and getting married. I’ve forgotten how exciting and precious these first few months to a year of life are with an infant. Unfortunately, my husband B [...]
