After five years in the “real” Army (Army life post West Point), we finally got to attend a military ball! Usually military members and their dates attend these types of things every year or every other, but because of Jamie’s frequently rotating assignments we’ve somehow missed out on being able to attend one. When he told me a few months ago that we finally had one on the calendar I was pumped!
I know several people who could really give or take the whole traditional military ball thing, but I view it as one of the perks of Jamie’s military career. I love a good excuse to get fancy with my husband and have a fun night out with friends, and fun was definitely had by all!
Kelsey and I have a mutual Army wife friend who connected us on Facebook shortly before Kelsey moved here back in January. After a bunch of texting and Facebook messaging we had our first “girlfriend date” a couple months ago and totally hit it off! I love how finding friends in the military is so much like real life dating. 😉 We quickly learned that our husbands work together, too! Thanks for connecting us, Angela!
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to three little girls (ages 7, 4, and 1) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
