During this weekend, please take time to remember the men and women who died serving our country. God Bless America.
Life has been a bit chaotic since spring break ended. We had a ton of things going on at work, and I quickly fell behind on everything. Stuff I had to do at work, going to Pure Barre, grocery shopping, cleaning, laundry. Everything. I’m currently taking Counseling, and we spent an hour in class last […]
***This is not a sponsored post. For clarity’s sake, my CPA is my sister, Leslie.*** While we had a few extra days, the impending doom of of filling out and filing taxes is upon us. Our tax situation has varied in our married life: we have filed taxes in four states in three years. We’ve […]
I took an epic nap when I got home from class on Saturday which resulted in 1) major insomnia and 2) catching up on blog reading. Most bloggers posted something about Valentine’s Day, so I clicked through to see what everyone did. Valentine’s Day is normally over a four-day weekend in Army land because of […]
I guess I should recap our Christmas break, right? We decided to go back east to visit our families in Virginia and Pennsylvania. Mac had block leave, so we planned an 11 day trip to maximize our time off. A major part of living away from family is getting yourselves, your cat, and your crap […]
I’m recapping our full Christmas trip tomorrow, but I thought I would share how we prepared for Christmas in PA and VA while in Colorado. If you live away from family and are traveling over the holidays, you have a few options. Buy everything there. Depending on how much time you have before Christmas (or […]
File this under “We’ve officially lost our minds.” We are fairly crazy cat parents, and Mac felt extraordinarily guilty after we boarded Purrburger during our trip to Alaska. So the solution to guilt? Take a twelve-pound animal who associates the car with the vet or groomer, zip her in a carrier for hours, and bring […]
When Mac commissioned, he was a designated branch detail. His lieutenant years where spent in artillery then he transitioned to the signal corps at his promotion to captain. While I wasn’t totally a fan of Fort Bragg and Fayetteville, artillery is pretty freaking cool. Mac’s brigade hosted Molly Pitcher Day a few weeks before our wedding […]
Today is our third wedding anniversary and the second in a row we’ve spent apart. The traditional gift for your third anniversary is leather, so I bought Mac a new wallet and a new belt. Since he isn’t home, we will just have to celebrate when he’s back. Happy anniversary, Babe. I love you.
Today, I’m linking up with two good bloggy friends (Jen and Amanda) in honor of military spouse appreciation day. Tell us about yourself and your blog. I’m Lisa. I’m 26, and I graduated from Virginia Tech 5 years ago. I’ve been a military “significant other” for 6 years, and we’ve been married for about three and […]
