And here we go again...

I feel like we just welcomed our Marine home.. well we kind of did.  He came home February 23rd.  Then went back to AFG for a month in August.. Such is the life of the USMC.
Saying good bye is never fun, especially when I have to say it to my best friend, husband, MyLove..
so we will just have to say see you soon.

Childhood Apraxia of Speech - My Paige

Dear Friend and Family,

As you all know Paige suffers from Apraxia of Speech, there is a funding project going on thru facebook.
It really costs nothing to you but a few moments of time, however, the impact could last a lifetime to improve the lives of children affected by apraxia of speech & their families! If you are a Facebook user, you can participate with simple daily voting.

The Vivint Gives Back project gives a select group of nominated charities the opportunity to win up to $250,000 for their mission. CASANA is one of the 100 selected charities and would love to win that funding to provide larger Apraxia Research projects, expand the expertise of professionals providing treatment to our kids with apraxia, and support families.

We can LITERALLY, only do it with your help - with your few moments each day - with your commitment and resolve. Winning $250,000 or even $100,000 toward Apraxia Research and programs would be in incredible accomplishment!


Click on the link:

The program will ask you to click on a link to log into Facebook and to "like" Vivint.

You will be able to get back to our voting page, scroll to the lower left and click on VOTE.

You can choose to also put a notice about voting on your Facebook Wall, as a way to encourage your family and friends to vote.

Please help us to win this! Remember. A few moments of your time; a lifetime impact.

Thank you! (Just click on the graphic below to go to Vivint Gives Back CASANA page to vote)

Thursday Three

ooops I didn't post a Thursday Three last week...  I am sorry.

This week here are my three favorite all time movies.

Roman Holiday - I adore Audrey Hepburn

Sweet Home Alabama - Same goes with little Miss Reese Witherspoon
(Kind of sorta named my oldest after her in a non stalkerish kind of way)

Bridget Jones - The book was actually funnier, who doesn't like Renee?

I just realized that these are the main chick flicks MyLove will actually watch with me.

So, what are your favorite movies?

Please someone give me some suggestions on what "fav's" we should share next Thursday.

 So I have been following

via Katrina (my bestie) for a while now... I am normally behind the camera taking pictures

pink blouse and gray sweater - MCCS Exchange - I know right?  Super cute.
jeans and black madden shoes - thrifted

Thursday Three #2

Since yesterday was my birthday, this week I am telling you my three favorite indulgences, in no particular order.

#1. Starbucks venti iced peppermint white mocha with whip!
I didn't know until recently that you can get peppermint syrup all year round.  This is my weekly cheat.

#2. Tiramisu - creamy, lady fingers dipped in espresso.  Who wouldn't love this yummy dessert?

#3. Chocolate Cream Pie - not chocolate pudding pie, no graham cracker crust no whipped topping.  I honestly have never had a better chocolate cream pie than my own, its my grandmothers recipe.  She shared it with me, my Mom and my Aunt and I think I am the reigning Chocolate Cream Pie DIVA.  This pie takes time, love and patience... it isn't for the novice bakerl.  Its a CREAM filling which requires about 20 minutes of constant stirring.  On bottom is a flaky crust and on top and simple meringue.  HEAVEN.  My poor love, when we were first married this pie was just to rich for him.  Now the two of us could devour one pie together in two days.  My favorite time to eat it is the day after I make it for breakfast.  I want to make one now... hmmmm

PLEASE in your comments share YOUR favorite indulgences.

Oh, and what are we sharing next Thursay Three?

Tuesday's Till #2

Nothing much to report this week in the garden. Planted more seeds and a few more veggies.

As I said last week we live in base housing which I love, at our base housing is privatized and Lincoln provides really great lawn service, the only thing is that they come on Thursdays and for what ever reason didn't last week so our grass is super long. Well we are having a last minute BBQ tomorrow for my BIRTHDAY. YAY me, one year older. UGH.  Anyway, the grass just won't make it til Thursday.

This weeks blog post is just a few pictures, two of MyLove cutting our grass so it is presentable and fun to frolic in tomorrow afternoon, one of my favorite pair of yard boots, and then the last one is of a dirty little garden fairy, isn't she beautiful???

milspouse weekly roundup


Are you in love with YourMilitaryMan??  
Well I am, and you are in the right place.
Do you have your coffee or tea in hand? 

This is ME, Denise!  I am verry happy to meet you,

I am a some what of  Suzy Homemaker but not at all a perfect kind, its all about trial and error.  I learn by doing.   I love to cook and bake, garden and I am also a crafter/diy'er at heart.  Check out my trial and errors over at

I have been a military family member for over 25 years.  My Dad was in the Navy and to his dismay I married a Lean Mean Killing Machine, ok maybe not so much but still a MARINE.

This is MyLove 13 years ago when he was in Japan, he was stationed there 6 months after we were married for an unaccompanied year tour.  Welcome to the CORPS right?

After lots of moves, schools and years of just "US" FUN!

 I got THREE Hands FULL!

We had our first, Reese, 6 years ago. She is a smart little girl that I love to just listen to.

Two years after that came Paige, she has had a tough little life but
amazes me and pushes my buttons at the same time.

and our not so baby, is Claire.  My BRUISER!

This is MyLove and I just a few weeks ago at HOMECOMING!

NOW link up your favorite posts and help us connect with one another!
PLEASE stop by as many milspouse links as you can today and spread the love and support!!

Next week you will get to meet the adorable Lydia at WithLoveLydia
