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 […]

Sequestration and the Military Family

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. […]

My New Kitchen

My Kitchen at Redstone Arsenal

I have finally “finished” my kitchen. Meet my ‘”Itsy-Bitsy-Teeny-Weeny-Second-Smallest-I’ve-Ever-Had-Kitchenini.” Seriously. This is the second smallest kitchen I have ever had. I had to get very creative with storage. I’ve kind of taken over every closet the house. Okay, not every closet, but it feels like my kitchen has simply invaded the whole house. My glassware […]

After travelling thousands of miles, our next task was to find a place to live. This is probably one of the most stressful parts of PCSing. Searching for your new home, in a place you don’t yet know. After countless phone calls, and searches and “No, that house is already rented” or “No, we don’t […]

PCS 2013: Days 14 and 15 | Colorado

DSC_2956_edited-1.jpg

On our 14th day of travel, we made it to Colorado! We stayed at the James M. Robb Colorado River State Park. When we got to our spot, we found we had a camp host. There were also a few cotton tails hopping around camp. Jack was in charge of grilling supper that night! And […]

Whirlpool Canyon, Along the Alaskan Highway

Whirlpool Canyon - Alaskan Highway

On our drive down the Alcan, we made a stop at Milepost 516 at a small rest stop along side what is called “Whirlpool Canyon.” Whirlpool canyon is a section of the Liard River where massive rapids form whirlpools, and “icebergs”,” logs and more get swirled around and around. The area is amazingly beautiful, so […]
