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!!
A YEAR AGO THIS MONTH……
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.
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!
now onto the fun!!!
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.

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!
