Anchorwife’s NAVY Graduation Weekend Checklist

It's been almost one month since I was in the Ceremony Hall at Great Lakes, Illinois anxiously waiting to witness my husband graduate from Boot Camp.  Even though I was excited, I was also incredibly nervous about seeing him after two months of absence.  Graduation weekend turned out to be pretty amazing (there was only one hiccup), and it only took one look from ...

Navy Wife’s Basic Training Highlights

When my husband flew off to Basic Training I had no idea what to expect. When would I get my first letter? First real phone call? What time of day will he call? How long will he have to talk? When will the NAVY finally put money in our account? Here’s the details of how it happened for me. Hopefully this can give you a solid idea as to when these milestones could ...

Ship-Out Day Advice

You wake up and its ship-out day. First of all, be grateful that you woke up. Your life did not end. Your sailor’s life did not end. It’s a blessing that God allowed you to wake up and you need to keep it in mind that many other people around the world weren’t as fortunate. Your sailor is about to start his career, not die. This is a great season in his life and ...

Ship-Out Week Advice

Ship-out week will probably sneak up on you.  If you took my previous advice on how to prepare months in advance for your sailor's up-coming ship-out date, then you were busy making memories.  Well, you're not through with all of that quite yet.  Ship-out week should resemble what you've been doing for the past months, only exaggerated.  Honestly, the biggest pie ...

Months Before His Ship-Out Date

Now that boot camp is over and my husband is officially a Sailor, I have some advice to offer to those of you who are still waiting for your husband to be gone for months at basic training. As soon as he has signed a contract with the US NAVY, you may begin to feel as though your husband’s ship-out date is a death sentence. While he prepares for his Boot Camp, ...

Graduation Day

This morning I woke up at 4 Chicago time (2 am California time) to start getting ready for my husband’s NAVY graduation.  Although I was excited to watch Kyle go from civilian to sailor, I was more nervous to just watch Kyle.  I hadn’t seen him in months and I was so nervous.  I needed EVERYTHING to be perfect since it had been so long since we’d seen each other. ...

Trophy Wife Dress

Woah, what an INSANE week.  I mean, this week literally turned me into a borderline psychopath.  I have been waiting to go shopping for my Chicago clothes and my “trophy wife dress” that I will wear to Kyle’s NAVY graduation (the outfit he’ll see me in after not seeing me for months, no pressure! ha!) till the weekend before we fly out there.  That was NOT smart. ...

So Nervous…

As the departure date of my flight to Great Lakes approaches, I am beginning to feel like I cannot breathe and like I may puke non-stop till I see Kyle again.  I feel so nervous, anxious, excited, and moderately worried.  Honest to God, I feel more nervous than I did when I was counting down the days to our wedding in 2010.  Back when we were preparing for our we ...

Resolved to be Content, Part II

As I’ve shared in a few other posts, God is teaching me about true, holy contentment.  I’m learning to be content with the lifestyle that He has prepared for me as a NAVY wife, since becoming one seemed to be the farthest thing from contentment when this whole process was beginning.  Even more than learning contentment, I feel like God is teaching me to not be st ...

Hello, Who’s This?

Originally I was scheduled to work today, but last night I asked my boss (who also happens to be my mother in law) if I could have the day off since I really just needed a day to pay bills, run errands, blog, and relax. Around 11am I checked the mail and lo-and-behold I had TWO letters waiting for me. Yesterday I didn’t get any letters but today I had two! I love ...
