It's about love, it's about compassion, it's about kindness, and faith. It has nothing to do with luck. You get what you give…

So give good.

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Since I'm a brand new Mama, I've decided to participate in this year's Ultimate Blog Party, a blog party to meet and network with other moms who blog, over at 5minutesformom.com. All of you Mamas out there should go check it out! :) There are tons of prizes to win also!

For those of you visiting from the Blog Party, Welome to My Blog!

I'm Becky! I am:

-married to E, an amazingly handsome Officer in the U.S. Army

- a brand new Mama to Joseph, aka "The Hunky Monkey"

- and also the Mama to Buddy, a Coton de Tulear (French for spoiled rotten, ha!) pup, who kindly shares his home with us.

I love being an Army wife, most of the time, and love that I'm one of the few women out there who can say that she's married to a Hero.

In my spare time, I LOVE to take an insane number of pictures of my son, read, sew and do anything crafty! Here are some of my recent favorite ideas:

I also love baking and trying new recipes and will be looking for healthy/healthier recipes as my family continues to grow :)

Unfortunately, between feedings, diaper changes and laundry, I don't have too much time for this stuff anymore, but I wouldn't trade those moments with Joseph for anything in the world :)

Because he is my first and I'm playing both Mommy and Daddy while my husband is away "on business," I often feel like I don't know what in the world I'm doing! I'd love to connect with other blogging moms out there for tips, support and ideas!

By the way, for those of you with little ones in Huggies diapers, they are offering coupons on their facebook page (3.50 if you're willing to share the link via facebook, email, etc). Target.com is offering a 2.50 coupon and when you use them together, you can save $6.00 on a 60 count or higher package of diapers-- hope some of you can use this! :)

My Life, from {Army} Brat to Wife


  1. So good to hear someone that's proud to be a military life. It's not easy (my husband has been in for 22 years), but I can't imagine us doing anything else.
