Military First Friday Fill-in #73

Greetings all, time for one of my favorite parts of the month, the Friday Fill-In.  Whoop whoop!!!  I’m totally late on this, seeing as its 10:15pm, but let me just say this has been a ridiculous day and week for that matter.  Phillip is ridiculously fussy with the teething and seriously, this mama’s boy is getting old.  I know I know, please shoot me in 10 years when he wants nothing to do with me.  I’m sure I have some VA/DC readers here, so you will know first hand about this ridiculous storm and the 2 million people that originally were going without power.  Holy Cow!  So needless to say I’m like really behind, then throw in teething, a five year old with summer-itis and a three year old with a fever, you have a recipe for disaster and non-blogging.

Some really exciting things and housekeeping here.  Check out the side bar for a coupon giveaway and sweepstakes, as well as amazing series of guest posts about military life from some amazing ladies.  You will also find a military discount from a fabulous Cammo Love sponsor, Leading Lady, who makes amazing bras!  Also, I am so excited and honored to have written for Spouse Buzz about OPSEC.  I’m pretty proud of my first big writing experience.

Now for the questions!  Thanks again for the amazing Wife of Sailor for doing this!

1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed?
Gosh, the last month…..nothing really in the last month.  I think the month before I had wanted to attend a Memorial at the National Cathedral and didn’t go because I had the kids and I was worried about that.  I should have just gone.  I could have handled it!

 2. What was your favorite thing that happened in June? 
My brother from another mother came through town with his band.  That was pretty darn exciting.  I haven’t seen him about two years.  Now that I’m on the East Coast I’ll probably seem them more which is so exciting!!  

3. What did you do to celebrate Independence Day?
Well, the hubby was working but arrived just in time for fireworks!  I packed up the kids and made it to our first parade over here.  It was so amazing.  The support for the military, and the military involvement in the parade was amazing!  Loved it!!

4. When you PCS, what items do you take with you and not let the movers pack (and if you do a DITY, what do you take with you and not box up) (thanks to Sespi at And You Never Did Think for inspiring this question)?
Important documents and special items like jewelry and stuff of the children’s.

5. What are you looking forward to in July?
I’m looking forward for some more sightseeing with the hubby and finishing up some major DIY projects around the house!  (be on the look out for that)

Thanks for stopping by!!
