Army Family & an Autumn Wedding | #OperationInTouch

DSC_0112_edited-1-1.jpg

This past week was slam packed with activities. So many exciting things, and so many lessons and milestones – I barely know where to begin. Over the weekend we had family coming in from all over. Georgia, Illinois, Tennessee, Texas and more. We opened our home and had people sleeping everywhere you could lay a […]

Planting Roots – A Rocky Start

Planting Roots

When we came to Alabama last year, we knew that this area was the location that we would – after two plus decades of army life – finally retire and begin to put down some roots. Now that we have been here more than a year, we are taking the next step. Dum…dum…DUMMMMMM……… House hunting. […]

Where Were You? | #OperationInTouch

Where Were You?

That’s a question that is circulating all over the internet, the news, and conversation today. Where were you? Where Were You? http://bit.ly/1ssqWaz @FoodieArmyWife #NeverForget911Click To TweetPowered By CoSchedule There are certain events in our lives, that we always remember where we were when they happened.

It is such a small world when it comes to the world of military life. You see, right now there is a trio of ladies – Michele, Carol and Wendy – competing on Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race. And why is it a small world? Because I have a dear friend who is […]

Remembering YOU in Army Life

Remembering YOU in Army Life

Over the years of being an Army Wife, I’ve learned a few things. Some of the lessons were easily learned, some not so much. I wanted to take a moment to share a few of the gems that I have gathered. First – learn to be Gumby. Sometimes you just have to go with it. […]

Meet Ann Marie

Ann Marie

I want to take a moment and introduce you to this great lady, Ann Marie. I first “met” Ann Marie several years ago, when I came across her blog, Household 6 Diva. At first glance, you might think from a name like “diva” that she’s one of those picture-perfect, too good to be true “women […]

Kindness

Army Wife

In honor of Thanksgiving, the RCB group has asked, what is the kindest thing anyone has ever done for you? There are many things people have done over the years that have been tremendous kindnesses. It is very insanely impossibly difficult to name which would be the kindest. But once in a while, someone will […]

Sequestration and the Military Family

photo.jpg

Everywhere I turn lately, all I hear are “furlough-this” and “sequestration-that.” I’m going to do my absolute best to keep politics out of this post, because The Foodie Army Wife is clearly not a political blog. Coming from the perspective of a military family who is seeing this unfold before our eyes, it is pretty upsetting. […]

Redstone Arsenal–Our New Home

Redstone Arsenal

We’ve now been at Redstone Arsenal for over a month. It is a very different installation – vastly different that any place we have ever been. The first week we arrived, we signed for housing on Monday morning and then headed to the PX to pick up the things we needed for our new home. […]
