I am The Optimistic Army Wife...

Hello all my Military Spouses and a Happy Military Spouses Appreciation Day to you! Thank you for all that you do, because I gotta say, we kick ass. We deal with our husbands/wives leaving for LONG periods of time, going to the field for weeks at a time, countless training's and 24 hour shifts. We kick ass. We have proven to ourselves that we are amazing and we all deserve a day to say...Hell yes I am!
Ya you know you liked that!

Over at Household 6 Diva and Riding the Roller Coaster are hosting a Military Spouse Appreciation Day Blog Hop! All of us Spouses are writing an Into to who we are! It is a day about us right? :) So here is Mine!






I am Liz! I am a 20 something Army Wife married to a man who is a 13D. If you dont know what a 13D is...You know the loud noises you hear going BOOM in the night? That would be my husband. I am a very proud Field Artillery Wife. We have 1 little Army Brat together and her name is Evelyn, she is 9 months old and the light of our lives! We have been through two 12 month deployments together, the last one I was pregnant through and he made it home just in time on R&R to see his daughter be born. We are currently stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, we love it here seeing as we just PCS'd from Fort Riley, Kansas. I am also originally from Utah! I miss Utah, its the best in my opinion.

As you can tell I blog as...The Optimistic Army Wife, why? Because I see my life as something that I have accomplished. I have had hard times in the 20 some-odd years I have been on this earth. But I believe that all prepared me for the life I am living today. I remain incredibly optimistic about almost every situation I encounter, sometimes I shock myself at how much I choose to not get upset about. 

I blog about whatever I want to. Usually its about our lives in general, not just Military. I have become incredibly close with a few other wives in the blogging community and I am very grateful for that. One thing I love to do is become personal with my readers. I love to get involved in there lives and situations...creepy huh? I love to respond to comments (if you dont have a no-reply email), and show what my life is like from a day to day basis.

I have a Facebook Fan Page but I hardly ever use it, but I am usually on my Twitter account everyday! You can also follow me on Pintrest

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your bloghop! Until then here's a face to remember me by and cant forget my beautiful family!

Nice to meet you, Liz! I just followed you over from your comment on my blog. I spent the majority of the first half of April hanging out around Ft. Bragg & Fayetteville while my husband was there on TDY! And I have to say your little girl is just precious!

Oh my goodness, Elizabeth, Evelyn is such an adorable baby! I am super jealous.. I'm stuck playing with mud, video games, and action figures all day and you have a beautiful little girl to dress up! Not fair! LOL!

I am loving this blog hop because it is really giving me a chance to get to know everyone better and reminding me to start commenting on everyone's posts more often.

Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day to you, doll!

Just stopping by from the blog hop! I'm originally (like forever ago) from Utah as well, Provo to be more exact. :) Living in Colorado though is fairly close, maybe someday your family can get stationed here and be close to home. :)
