MilSpouse Blog Hop!

I love bloghops, don't you? They let you find so many people that you have so much in common with that you would never find otherwise. It's just great. Kumbaya, bloghop, kumbaya.

This particular bloghop is for MilSpouses and comes from...

And I'm cheating a little (I can only hit you guys with so many bloghop posts a month, but I love finding new blogs to love!) and adding this to the bloghop here:

Random Ramblings of A Military Wife

Now to my mini-bio!

I'm not actually a MilSpouse yet, but I will be in 2 weeks! And one day, but I'm not counting that day...because I don't want to and I can do what I want...right? ;)

My fiance, B, is commissioning from an ROTC program as a 2nd Lt in the Air Force in June. Our first PCS is in Middleofnowhere, Western USA. True fact. Really. Well, it's actually in the cornerofnowhere, but that's besides the point.

I'm a multi-year senior in University intending on a bachelor's in Secondary English Education. I love to travel, if just for the weekend or for months at a time in other countries. We're outdoors-y people, and we camp and boat often in the summers.

We love dogs, and will go to adoption events even though we know better than to get one right now. I have a dog, Chase, but he is staying here when we PCS. I have a seriously hard time not laughing in posed pictures--pretty sure I'm incapable of it. I photograph everything, sometimes I even get a good shot. DIY home crafts make me gitty. I bake and write. Sometimes I even write about baking. I also believe that the world would be a better place if Marisa de los Santos would crank out another novel and Boy Meets World would release all it's seasons on DVD. I am a philanthropist for a billion things--mostly involving women and kids--and I never make the decision on where we are eating dinner.

I actually joined Blogger to "meet" other military wives before B and I were even engaged. We were one of those gag couples that knew very early on that we were in it for the longhaul, and I wanted to know more about the life of the military wife. I found it, and I absolutely love learning more and more so I'd love to hear from you all!

Thanks for stopping by, and head on over to these blogs if you want to join in on the fun!

I really enjoyed your post. I think I have said before that my husband feels called into the Air Force. We are trying to gain the support of our families..but we are not getting anywhere. Any words of encouragement would be great.
