Back to School 2014- Who

I'm so excited to be linking up with Blog Hoppin' Back to School 2014! This is perfect timing since we go back to school tomorrow. 


Welcome to Monday...all about ME!

Last week I linked up with Falling into First for a Meet the Teacher Blogger link up and it was super fun. I loved getting to know more about you all and it was fun sharing about myself. 

Head here first and then read on my friends. 

I'm a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi...I did attend the Gulf Coast campus (the main campus is in Hattiesburg), but was actually living in California when I graduated.

In the Meet the Teacher Blogger link up I mentioned that my husband and I were living in Mississippi. We were there courtesy of the Air Force. My husband was active duty for 9 1/2 years. During that time he deployed 3 times...the first time was only 4 months after we were married; the second time was when my boy-boy was 5 months old (he made it back for his 1st birthday!); and the last time was when I was pregnant with my little love bug. She was 4 months old when she met her daddy for the first time. 

I'm super-d-duper proud to have been able to support my husband during those years of service. 

After the separating from the Air Force my husband got a civilian job with the Army in a town outside of Boston. We got to live there for 7 of the coldest, snowiest months they'd seen in, oh, only 30 years or so.  The hubs decided to take a job back at the base we had just left...across the country twice in 7 months...not ideal.

But we had a blast living in MA! So many highlights I could picture you all to death, but if I had to pick one really cool thing it was getting to see the Boston Marathon. 

We lived maybe 10 minutes from Ashland, which is where the race starts. We got our spots on the sidewalk and waited for the action. It was a great thing to experience!
