Currently | May

I missed posting yesterday because I felt terrible and crashed with the baby at 730. The pollen where we are is CRAZY and everyone is miserable. Here's to hoping that was the worst for me this allergy season. 

For today's blog everyday in May post, I'm joining the currently link-up over at Gold and Bloom. 

Designing my future! Well, really trying to figure out to logistics of going back to school. I'm exploring a few options and hope that I'll be able to make some progress while Hubs is away at school.

Enjoying warm weather with air conditioning, driving our new car, trips to target. ;)

Ordering baby's first birthday things soon! I can't believe she's going to be one in only a month. I have no idea where the past year went.

Celebrating Hubs starting his Officer training this week. This has been such a long time coming! Fingers crossed that the next 9 weeks (and his 5+ months of job training) fly by. Also celebrating my sister's 21sr birthday this weeks and my first Mother's Day with Bug on the outside!

Tasting a ton of fresh, organic produce. It's been so long without it I forgot how good it is! Also, still catching up on old restaurant favorites. 

What are you up to this month?

blog everyday in may: day 4

Today's Blog everyday in May prompt is write a thank you letter to anyone for anything. Since it also happens to be Hubs' birthday, I thought it would be appropriate to write one to him (and doubly appropriate as it's also man crush Monday ;) ).

Dear Hubs,

Thank you for being my best friend. You are my favorite (adult) person and I love how smart, loving, and handsome you are. Thanks, also, for knowing what I'm about. ;)

Thank you for being a great husband ("one of the good ones" for real). I know I don't say it enough, but I appreciate all the ways you contribute to our family. The past five years with you have flown by in the best way--even with the chaos that is our life--I cannot wait for the next 95.

Thank you for being a great dad to our girls. They both love you so much and I'm so glad you're theirs. You are the best dad for daughters that I could have asked for--they are so lucky to have you!

This week starts a big adventure and I know you're a little nervous but you're going to be great! We are proud of you and thank you for working so hard to support our family in the best way you can. We are cheering you on everyday!

Love love love & stardust,

Found Love. Now What?

blog everyday in may: day 3


Today's Blog everyday in May prompt is your travel bucket list. This could be way longer, and these are only overseas options, but my top desires right now are:

England - Hubs and I really want to visit England for our next big trip.

Ireland - Ireland, too, ever since he went on a Europe from the Air ride with Big Girl last weekend. ;)

Italy - My former coworker is from Italy and she's promised to be my tour guide whenever I can finally get there.

Greece - So much history!

France - Eiffel Tower, duh. Hubs is super indifferent (bordering on anti-) France, but if we're already in Europe maybe I can convince him to pass through. ;)

Vietnam - My grandmother is from here and I'd love to see it one day!

Thailand - Because elephants. And also the crazy awesome looking beaches!

Australia - In elementary school I wrote a 14-page report (on a typewriter) about Australia (yes, I was an overachiever). I would love to explore it one day!

Mexico - The paternal homeland, with family still living there, a must in my lifetime!

What's on your travel bucket list?

Found Love. Now What?

blog everyday in may: day 2

Today's Blog Everyday in May prompt is 5 photos that tell your story. This blog is the story of our little family, so the photos represent all of us.

1. Our (Hubs' and my) first photo together--well, one of them. This is one of the first photo/selfie sessions we had in Hubs' Maryland apartment.

2. First family photos. We got these done shortly after we got engaged and a couple of months before we were married. So, I guess this is technically right before we became a "we." ;)

3. Wedding. Making it official! (And already somehow over four years ago.)

4. Japan. Our first PCS as a family and one big adventure. We loved our time in Japan and we are definitely still adjusting to life back stateside.

5. Baby. And, of course, the biggest news of the past year was expanding our we to include this tiny little peanut. Our little family feels much more complete now!

Found Love. Now What?

blog everyday in may: day 1

Now that we're settling into our new "normal" (for a while anyway), I was sitting around contemplating what type of editorial calendar I wanted to try to re-establish for this little blog. Then, while scrolling through my favorite MilSpouse bloggers, I saw that there is a Blog Everyday in May challenge hosted by Belinda over at found love now what--perfect timing! I'm going to try to blog as much as possible (but totally not stressing over a post every single day because motherhood), and I love the prompts Belinda provided, so hopefully this is just what I need to get back into a good writing routine. I've been out of one for way too long!

Day 1: Introductions

- I'm B, a formerly single working lady turned full-time military wife and working stepmama, turned full-time stay-at-home mama to two. I'm the blogger behind this little corner of the internet (though my husband might be making some guest appearances in the future).
- Speaking of my husband, "Hubs" as he's known around here, he's an active duty Airman which means our little family follows him around the world.
- Big Girl, my stepdaughter turned big sister, is our very energetic 2nd grader. She's smart, sweet, talkative, and a teenager in a kid's body. ;)
- Bug is our tiny girl who is almost a year old (somehow). She is petite with a big personality and is pretty much in charge of our schedule at this life stage.

That's our little crew in a nutshell. Let me know in the comments if you're stopping by from the link-up!
