Army Wife Weekend Recap

I need a weekend to re-cooperate for my weekend.

I got my Julep Maven package in.
Go sign up and get yours.
I got all this for just one red cent!

I wore this little outfit to our dinner with some Army Wives before our troop's FRG meeting.

Friday night, my good friend Lyndsay and I went to a Bunco Bash hosted by the Armed Services YMCA.
I got a prize for most wins. 
And she got a prize for most loses. Hah!
We had such a good time.
Can't wait until they host it again next month.
I stayed the night with her. 

The next morning, Saturday, we got up early and participated in a Ladies Spur Ride. 
We rucked with 20 lbs. in our backpacks and carried a fake gun.
I think we walked/ran about 3 miles, but I'm not really sure.
It was up and down hill.
We did rolled big tractor tires.
Carried water jugs.
Carried fake wounded soldiers.
Completed field exercises and ate an MRE.

I appreciate what my hubby and all the other soldiers do so much more now.
They really work their butts off and truly are American heroes.

After all our hard work.
We finally got our own spurs!

I literally went to bed at about 7:30.
And Sunday I spent the entire day on the couch.

I can't wait to tell my sweet man how proud I am of him and how hard he works for us.
We are finally on the downhill slide of this deployment. 
I'm so proud of us and how far we've come.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did!

  6. that julep gift looks amazing, isn't the military wife bunch just the best. my mom frequently told me so. she was a military wife for 24 yrs. so encouraging and uplifting and you all are going through similar situations. thank you for the sacrifices you make so your husband can help continue to keep our country safe

  7. We have our spouse spur ride in a few weeks and I am so excited. I am so glad that deployment is winding down for y'all. We are gearing up for ours and I am trying to really treasure the next few months together.
