Military Spouse Appreciation Day Blog Hop!

Wow, logging onto Google Reader this morning, I found gobs upon gobs of y'all participating in the Military Spouse Appreciation Day Blog Hop, hosted by Riding the Roller Coaster and Household 6 Diva. So I just had to join the crazy fun! If your're not already apart of this, head on over via the links above and join in with me! Lets get to meetin peeps:)

This is me, Becca, the military spouse. I'm silly and fun, as you can probably tell! I wear flip flops year around and am addicted to lip gloss and speciality coffee.

And this is my husband a.k.a R, the soldier, property of Uncle Sam.

R and I met online the summer of 2003 while we were both living out our awesome early 20's in Alaska. He was stationed in Fairbanks and I was living in Anchorage, 365 miles away. Our first face to face didn't happen, however, until September of 07' after he'd returned stateside from 16 long months in Iraq. He opted for orders in Georgia so that we could finally and properly say "howdy" to one another and be closer; I was back at home, living in somewhere Tennessee at the time...

We said "I Do" in front of an intimate group of respected friends and family on December 27, 2008 sealing the deal as a military spouse. R was still stationed in Georgia at the time, so luckily I was only 350 miles away from family and could visit often. But that was then and this is now, where we're stationed in Ft. Lewis, Washington!! Things have changed so much in the time since we PCS'd here. A large part being the addition of this little lady!!!

February 12, 2012 we said "goodbye" to our life as a duo making it a trio! 

Say hello to Sugarcube a.k.a Alyssa Quinn G who will be turning 3 months on Mothers Day! Gosh, time needs to slow down... Life with this sweet one is amazing but not everyday is peaches and creams as I know all moms would agree. Being a parent is hard work y'all, but I love it! And it really is true, your own kid crying doesn't get on your nerves half as much as someone else's, haha! Truthfully, I CAN wait for the next nibblet to come along but definitely looking forward to when it's time to expand our little gang:)

We're supposed to keep this short so I end with, being a military spouse is hard work and should definitely be noted as such, but it can be a lot of fun to, if you let it! I see this life as an adventure. One that will end eventually when R retires, so why not enjoy it while I can! Yes, the moving, seeing new places, meeting new friends and finding new jobs etc...Stuff we all complain about and get tired of but I know my life will become the front porch, sipping sweet tea, watching the kids play scene soon enough:)

Feel free to stay a while, poke around and DEFINITELY say hello!

Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day!
