Mommy and Me Monday w/ Really, Are you Serious?

I haven’t linked up with Krystyn in awhile over at Really, Are You Serious? and I thought my efforts to blog as much as possible in November (I fear my original plans to blog every day might have been to lofty a goal) would be the perfect time to resurrect my participation in the Mommy and Me Monday link-up. We as moms are almost always behind the camera and this link-up forces you to think about getting in front of that camera with your littles, making those memories right alongside them. So here’s some of my most recent “Mommy and Me Moments”.

Hopefully I’ll be able to resurrect this little post here.  I always think its fun to look back on where you were the last year, how big the kids have gotten.  Occasionally I’ll even come across a really sweet memory that I haven’t thought about in awhile.  So, the point is its really fun and you know you wanna!!


We celebrate my adorable little girl’s fifth birthday by heading to Baltimore to the Aquarium for the first time. Loved it! We also had a fantastic time letting our oldest carve his first pumpkin all by himself.

Lastly, on my blog this month last year I shared our homecoming, that we had had a couple months before that with you all.  Another shout-out to the amazing Jessica Del Vecchio Photography
for the amazing pictures. If you are in the DCMetro area, hire her.  She’s amazing.

*my favorite thing about this picture (and a lot of the pictures) is that adorable couple in the back right. They are in many of the pictures in a similar pose. It wouldn’t be a stretch to assume that he, himself, probably served.

so that’s where we are and where we’ve been!  grab a button and join in the fun all month!  Link up and tweet #Rewind365 and tag me!

It’s Okay Tuesday – Tales of Real Life Housewifedom *Link-Up with Airing My Dirty Laundry*

Airing My Dirty Laundry

Happy Tuesday Ya’ll! I’m back after a terribly lacking blogging week, but I have an excuse.  My in-laws were here and we were taking in some of the sights!  This is a perfect segway however….

– it’s okay that I have basically done nothing around my house – cleaning, organizing, putting things away

– it’s okay that I have about a million and one emails to go through

-it’s okay that we are going on vacation at the end of the week and I’m not even close to ready (see number 1)

-it’s okay that after several days off hubby is back to work and I miss him terribly!

– it’s okay that I’m going through Geocaching withdrawls…it’s a real thing, I swear.  Mr. Air Force and I just started doing it and now I’m going through withdrawls after one day

Go link up with my fellow Air Force Spouse Blogging Pal over at Airing My Dirty Laundry. She has a great blog and you can link up with this post every week!

Sunday Social

Sunday Social

Once again its time for the amazing Sunday Social from Ashely Lately and A Complete Waste of Make-Up!  Last weeks was so awesome and I had some great comments here and found some great ladies!  Love it.  Seriously, this is the best link-up.  If you’re new to Cammo Style Love, thank you so much for stopping by.  Check out my Hunger Games giveaway, all my revamped support tabs up top – if you know someone in the military spread the word.  I also do a lot of book reviews, so if you’re looking for a book check out Rhe’s Bookshelf up top.

now onto the fun!!!

1. Name 4 jobs you’ve had in your life.
I was in retail about this amazing little shop on the main street of an “old town” part of a city.  we sold dolls, swarovski crystal, figurines and stuff like that.  It was first job and it was my very very favorite.  It really was the best job ever.  I was probably at least 40 years younger than anyone else that worked there but it was such a fun time.

Dance Instructor

Courtesy Clerk (grocery bagger)

Bakery worker/cake decorator

legal assistant/admin

Indianapolis/St. Paul, MN

Oklahoma City, OK

Oklahoma City in 2007!  feels so long ago.  It was our first vacation away from Brian.  He
was one.  It was a really neat city, and I’m glad we got the chance to go.  I don’t think
we would have ever had a reason to go there if it hadn’t been for the military.  Seeing the
Oklahoma City bombing memorial was a memorable experience.

Can’t wait to read everyone’s posts!  make sure to leave a comment for me so I can find you!

thank you so much for stopping by!

Sunday Social, Week 64

 It’s time for another Sunday Social, my favorite time of the week!  If you’ve never seen this link-up and/or participated, check it out!  I’ve found some of my favorite blogs to read on this list.  And, if you’ve got a spare moment click on that big blue banner on the right there.  49 of my fellow military bloggers have been named the 50 Best Military Blogs out there by VoiceBoks: The Voice of Parenting blog.  Vote for your favorite!!

Sunday Social

1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
There are lots of cool things about being adult, for sure.  However, being a kid is pretty rockin’ too.  And I’m talking about the kid-kid age, where you’re too young for a ton of responsibility and your life is playing outside with a pretend snail family (yup that was me) or spending the day with Barbie, Ken and their dream house.  I have so many fun memories from my childhood just like that.  Sometimes I think it might be fun to just go play outside without a care in the world.
2. Dd you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
Rheanna Banana and Anna Anna.  The Rheanna Banana is purely a rhyming thing, but the Anna Anna comes with a story.  The church I grew up in was also the church my dad grew up in, consequently many many long time family friends, surrogate parents and grandparents.  This nickname was given to me by a surrogate grandpa, who whenever he saw me would call me Anna Anna…because you know the Rhe part of my name is like ‘Re’, as in repeat.  Repeat “anna”…so there you go.  Anna Anna was born.  And to this day I love it.
3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
The monkey bars man!  Do you guys remember putting one knee over and then spinning forwards and backwards?  Did anyone else do that?!!
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
 I wanted to be a ballerina, a singer, a mommy and even just like Mary Kay Ash (you know, like Mary Kay Cosmetics?).  My mom sold Mary Kay for years and years and actually I had written that in on a form or something one day.  My mom copied it and sent it to Mary Kay and she wrote me back.  I still have that.
5. Did you participate in any school activities?
Band!  Whoop Whoop!  Band geek right here.  I played the flute.  Where are all my other band geeks!?!
6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
 Gosh, I wish I could answer this about my sister because there are still ones that we tease her about and are an inside joke.  I’m really trying to think here.  I mean we have stories that we tell about being a kid…but I’m trying to think funny, like a specific story.  I was pretty clumbsy.  Now I’m going to have to ask if there’s something that sticks out to my parents at least.  Mom, if you read this, comment!!
