Dining Out





And so concludes our ROTC years.  Last Sunday was our final Dining Out…and next Friday my handsome husband commissions!  I am so absolutely excited and proud of him.  Five long years of hard hard work….

I’ve really enjoyed going to Dining Out with him.  This last time my parents were able to attend for the first time…which is even more exciting because obviously it’s the year the Pilot commissions…and he got to walk through the arch of steel.  So glad they were able to be there for that!

Getting to experience a bit of his world at Dining Out has been amazing.  From the toasts, to the (very sobering) POW/MIA remembrance ceremony, to the speakers, to the awards.  The only part I don’t get is one of the rules they have.  No PDA while in uniform.  Seriously??  Someone didn’t think through that rule too well.  I mean….look at my handsome husband!!  Oh, well.  I was able to save the hand holding and congratulatory kiss until later….

Soon we will be off on our next adventures in Texas!


Military Spouse Appreciation Day


Household 6 Diva and Riding the Roller Coaster teamed up to host a military spouse blog hop in honor of Military Spouse Appreciation Day last Friday.

My personal military experience has so far been limited to ROTC.  The Pilot, my wonderful husband, has a few weeks left of Air Force ROTC and in June he commissions as a 2nd Lieutenant.  He is a pilot select and in February ’13 we “take off” to Texas for pilot training!  I can’t wait!  This has been The Pilot’s dream for years and we are so excited to finally be so close.  I look forward to seeing new places and experiencing new things.  I look forward to meeting new people and making friends on our base.  We definitely will have an exciting life ahead as we follow God through our Air Force life!

Last year’s Dining Out…

Over the years I’ve collected  various blog posts and articles that I thought were particularly insightful or encouraging…or good ideas for when we go through future deployments.  Here are a few of them for you to peruse and enjoy…

To all you military spouses who stop by…thank you for your service!  I know you all have different stories and are going through lots of various circumstances in your lives…but you are in my prayers!

God bless.
