Mil Spouse Blog Hop

Hey guys!

Today is Military Spouse Appreciation Day and I think I just barely made it in time for the blog hop hosted by Household6Diva and RidingtheRollerCoaster. Make sure you go on over and check out all the rest of the amazing mil-spouse bloggers over there... after you read mine of course! I think this is my first time participating in a blog hop. I'm a little excited and a lot clueless.
This is my husband and I. Husband - FA Guy who seem to always be leaving me to go play Army.  Alabama Football Lover. Wishes he had a big truck, but drives a Ford Focus. Funny and he knows it. Pretty hot if I do say so myself.
Myself - Stay at Home Mama to a toddler who never wants to leave her side. Ever. Coffee, Wine, Book and Food Lover. Scrapbooker. Blogger (obviously). Weight-Watcher-er. Just as enthusiastic over football as the husband... almost. Proud Van Driver.

And this is our boy, Andrew. Car, Train, Bus, Truck, Dirt and Rock Lover. Silly as all get out. Milk and Playground enthusiast. Almost 2-year old. Crazy, crazy, crazy. And Adorable.

My husband and I are about to celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary, but have been together coming up on 10 years. And we don't always dress like that above. We had a Derby party this year.
 He's been in the Army for a little over 3 years and we love it.. on most days. Joining has been something he has always wanted to do, but to be honest, I know I held him back. Lucky for me - he loved me enough to put up with my stubborn ways.
Now here we are in Fort Bliss, Texas, far far away from our "home" in South Carolina. We are two of the few who love it here! It's really a pretty amazing place. We live on post and really, it can't be compared to anywhere else (so I hear). AND it helps that I have the most amazing friends ever.
We are working hard to grow our family (sorry for the mental, mom). We desperately are ready for baby number two. We went through a miscarriage a few months ago and I'm very open with the whole thing. SO - over in my little corner of the internet, you'll here me talking about anything from our hopefully growing family.. nothing TMI.. promise, our Army life, A LOT about our son (it's only fair that you're forewarned), and whatever comes across this little brain of mine.

I hope you stop by and say "heyyyyy". I'm looking forward to meeting more of you!

Stopping by from the blog hop, and wanted to say hello. Your little boy is hella adorable! So sorry to hear about the miscarriage. We went through the same situation before getting our sweet Caroline, and now she is the biggest Mommy's girl out there. Keep your head up, and I am looking forward to reading more!

Favorite parts- your husband wishes he had a truck but drives the Focus and Andrew is a milk and playground enthusiast! You're hilarious. :) As we say here in the South, you done good, girl. ;) Oh yeah, and War Eagle! ;) lol

I love that your husband drives a Focus. It's ALMOST as sexy as my husband's Buick.

And I also love that you showed my home state some love and had a Derby party.

So sorry to hear about the miscarriage. I love your attitude about Ft. B! Everyone badmouthed Ft. Hood before we moved here and I love it! Glad to be catching up on your blog! :)
