If you know anything about me or the Marine Corps or even if you read my post called "Support," you know about my feelings towards military spouses and my feelings towards how I *wish* mil spouses interacted. 

My biggest and best #MilSpouse support system has always been on Twitter. Over the years I've had the chance to meet some great military spouses IRL. Recently Semper Fi Momma shared a link to a local mil spouse meet up group. While I tend to avoid anything to do with military spouses because of the politics and drama, I figured I'd check this one out. I didn't know these ladies, they didn't know me, they don't know my husband, they don't know what my husband does, their husband doesn't know my husband (well, at least they don't work together) so there couldn't be much conflict. 

Obviously my lack of free time will keep this post short, but I had a great time last night with Semper Fi Momma and all of the other lovely military spouses, Brady had a blast too! It was a refreshing end to my first week back at work, stress-free socializing and bonding! I am looking forward to our next dessert and coffee meetup next month! These lovely ladies are genuine, kind and fun! 

If you're local to San Diego and are an interested military spouse, let me know and I will share the Meetup.com link with you! 

Dessert and coffee ladies, THANK YOU. 

I needed that.


  1. I didn't know you had a blog. I'm glad you had fun. I agree that it can be...challenging doing things like that in person with all that gets mixed in. :-)
    I'll put you on my blog list too. You see my shopping spree today? Check out my blog. You'll love!! @milliferocks

  2. :) And this is exactly why I love this group as well. Plus, if you need resources you have a range of experience and if one person doesn't know the answer to what you might be looking for, another person will. Great group, great ladies, and I'm so glad you're a part of it now, too.

  3. I didn't know about this group *sigh* but am SO glad you had a great time Chelsea! ;)
