June Friday Fill In

YAY for June!  I’m very excited because it means we’re that much closer to meeting Munchkin.  Also, I’m kinda impressed that I managed to post everyday this week.  I wouldn’t get used to it but it was nice.  Anyway, on to the Friday Fill In.  The lovely Wife of a Sailor hosts this meme on the first Friday of the month.  You can head on over to check out other responses and don’t forget to say hi to Wifey!

1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed?

One thing I would have changed in May?  Let’s see…I would change my fasting numbers.  They’ve been all over the place and I’m trying to get them under control.  I can try but it’s a little out of my control.  I’m working on it though.

2. What was your favorite thing that happened in May?

2012-05-26 14.09.38May was a great month. My post yesterday talked about the things that made me smile but the highlights include a visit from my mom, a baby shower, time at the dog park, a warm day at Pike’s Place and lots of time with The Man.

3. June includes the first day of summer… what are your plans for the summer?

Have a baby!  That’s the big plan but we’re also going to be transitioning to civilian life.  Other plans include picking blackberries once they’re ripe and enjoying our daughter once she arrives.

4. Do you use the services on base (gym, financial planning, family services, daycare)? And if so, what’s your favorite one?

We don’t use a whole lot.  Sometimes I shop at the commissary and the NEX.  We’ve used ITT for tickets and we enjoy the discount.  We also like the bowling alley even though we haven’t gone bowling for awhile.  We’ve used the Navy Marine Core Relief Society a few times for and I’ll be taking the Budgeting for Baby class this month.  So maybe the NMCRS is my favorite because I think they offer great services.

5. What are you looking forward to in June?

I am most looking forward to The Man going on terminal leave!  We can’t wait for him to be done.  The Man will be much happier and life will much less stressful (we hope!) 

I hope you all have a wonderful June!

What are you looking forward to this month?


  1. Just wanted to let you know that the 5 month update for the Bookmark Break Challenge is up!

  2. Wow, big life changes coming your way!  I'm sure things will feel much more settled when The Man is out of the military.  And I'm sure he likes that he won't be deployed for half your daughter's childhood.  Sounds like a great summer!

  3. You will have a wonderful and life changing summer :)  

  4. Thanks for the heads up...and I just updated it:) I was a little behind. Oh well!

  5. Yup, lots of them! We tend to go big or go home:)

    If you want to get together again, let me know! This month is wide open:)

  6. We're looking forward to it:)

  7. OMG! You have a busy and exciting summer ahead of you! Blackberries grow on the side of a nearby farm and it's been our summer tradition to pick them before the rest of the neighborhood figures out that wild blackberries are delicious and free! Yay, I look forward to reading about all of the changes ahead for you and your husband :) Alma

  8. Our house is surrounded by bushes so we just have to stroll out of the house:) We do what we call berry walks nightly when they're ripe!
