Hey everyone! I'm Erin and half of a team of best friends who do a beauty/military blog, Made-Up In America. Seems like an odd combination, but it really embraces what we love the most. I'm a special education math teacher and Trinnie works for USAA as a Member Relationship Specialist. We review and discuss beauty and cosmetics, but also include elements on budgeting and savings in this area. We haven't been blogging for too long, but we hope to review specials and deals at your local exchange, as well as reviewing ones you should stop at during your next PCS!...more

I am new to the world of blogging, but I thought I would start one to help myself while DH is in Okinawa. We made the decision that he would go unaccompanied, so it's me and the kids by ourselves for 2 years. I thought having a blog might let me release some frustration without him having to hear it. I found this site through a google search, but I'm here!!

On Sunday, January 10, 2010, approximately
760 volunteers will meet at Camp Pendleton to pack 2400 Valentine care
packages for the 1st Marine Division – 3 battalions. This is the
annual district event for 14 Orange county chapters of the National
Charity League. In addition to the care packages, we will provide
approximately $15,000 in gift cards to the families of our Marines,
living in and around Camp Pendleton.
waiting for this base to close and praying we get the orders we want with good schools done 15 years of navy in San Diego now in TX looking for a move to VA any comments on where to live in VA OR FL. ??
When your military spouse is on deployment, TDY, etc, what do you do to keep yourself going? Do you have routines, rituals or something that changes when s/he is gone?
I'll start, even though my husband has only been gone for two weeks. Right now, he's not deployed, just at his new duty station while I stay behind to sell the house.
So what do you think is the hardest thing about PCSing? I'm going through my first one right now and the toughest thing so far is that my hubby will be moving without me until our house sells here.
