Blogger Meetup!

Yesterday I was so excited to finally meetup with a longtime blogger friend, Jaci from Me and My SoldierMan. She invited me to a luncheon for the Fort Bliss Officer and Civilian Spouse Association (which I am now a member off, woo!). I had a great time hanging out with her and meeting some other ladies. We snapped this picture before we left:

Before I met up with Jaci, I went to the newcomer's brief with Kyle. I got to see a wonderful friend from Bragg (she and her husband just pcs'd here as well), so nice to see a familiar face in a new and unfamiliar place. It was great to meet a few people from his new unit. Everyone here is so incredibly nice and relaxed, definitely a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of Bragg. 

I hope you all have a great day and a wonderful weekend!


  1. I'd love to meet some of my favorite bloggers in real life... to bad I'm stuck in the middle of no where Indiana.

  2. Is there a lady in the background with a.... towel on her head? LOL

    I noticed you two pretty ladies first, don't get me wrong, but couldn't help but notice her in the background. haha So glad you're finding some new and old friends at Bliss!

  3. Wow! This is great! Your outfit is too cute. It is nice to see familiar faces at a new duty station. I remember after an overseas tour and moving back to FL, I ran into SO many of my former classmates in the area. it was nice and it also looked like FL was the next place everyone from Sicily PCS'd too.

  4. I love Jaci's blog too! That's so cool that you got to meet up. I'm hoping to meet with Jenn from Life with the Lieutenant and Sarah from Dandelions & Daffodils soon since they're stationed really close to my college.

    Also, I'm wondering the same thing that Jenn is... IS there a lady in the background with a towel on her head?!

  5. Hello Jen,

    We went to see my husband's father and had a pleasant visit with him. After retuning home, he died the very next day. He lived a blessed and long life, so even thought there is grief, we have so much for which to give the Lord thanks. I am so thankful we were able to see him.

    It is great to see that you are happy where you are.

    One other note: I have changed my URL...

    :) Hope

  6. It's so great being able to meet up with other bloggers! I have been fortunate to meet up with one other blogger .. I truly hope to meet some more!
    Have a fabulous weekend pretty girl!


  7. How wonderful Jen! It's such a blessing to meet back up with army friends!
    And how fun to meet a fellow blogger?! But, why is the lady at the table wearing a towel, like out of shower towel head, haha?!

  8. Ummm...jealous! I can't find any local bloggers in my area.

  9. I love bloggy meet ups. If only I knew some blogger her at Fort Polk.


Love hearing from you!! :)
