UPDATED… Military Spouse blog links are now located in the sidebar. Leave a comment if you’d like to be added to the list!
A fellow military spouse is hosting a blog hop today at Riding the Roller Coaster. A blog hop is a fun way to find more blogs that you might like to follow or visit occasionally. For any of you readers who would like to find more military spouse blogs, click on the link up top and at last count, you’ll find links to at least 50 other military spouses who’ve taken to the blogosphere. Since there will be new readers floating around at all those blogs, each spouse is writing a basic introduction… hence the following paragraphs that you regular readers are thinking, “duh, we totally knew this already…” but for you regular readers, there are a few nuggets of new info thrown in to keep you on your toes…
If you’ve found your way here from the blog hop – welcome aboard! I’m NavyGirl and my hubby is NavyGuy. We are stationed at NAS Whidbey Island in Washington State. He is a Prowler Naval Flight Officer (he’s Goose from Top Gun), and we just joined our first squadron in November. He went through the flight school syllabus in Pensacola, Florida, and was winged in August of 2008. We moved to Washington together that fall, and got married last May, so our first anniversary is quickly approaching!
Before the Navy, I was a high school social studies teacher in Wisconsin. Teaching jobs are pretty scarce out here, so I’ve been working at Starbucks for the last nine months (but I won’t be there for much longer because some new and more exciting opportunities are coming down the pipe…). I spend lots of time reading, watching TV, going to movies, scrapbooking and making handmade cards, playing with our adorable black lab puppy Tally, and adjusting to life in the Pacific Northwest (too much nature still scares me).
NavyGuy and I are gearing up for our first deployment, and all the “fun” that comes with it. So again, welcome! Come in and get comfy. You can even put your feet up on the furniture. (But please use a coaster.)
I’d love to know if you’re new and stopping by – please say hello in the comments, and if you’re a military spouse with a blog, I’d love to check yours out as well, so feel free to add your link.
