Just a little snippet

As most of you know I am an army wife (OMG how do I do it??)  I was checking out my girl Ashley's blog and saw a post and decided to join in the fun.  I'm supposed to post a blog about myself so here goes:

My name is Crista and I became an army brat when I was 8 years old.  I moved from a very small town in Illinois to Ft. Polk, LA.  Yes, it was a huge culture change for me.  Growing up changed me a lot.  I met my future husband in Ft. Stewart, GA after swearing that I'd never get with a soldier(I decided that the military was for me because well, soldiers are hot!lol)  I became an army wife in 2001 at the ripe age of 21(I know its older than a "typical" army wife, wait til you see how old I was when I gave birth to my first!).  After moving around we decided to have a baby.  I had my first at...(sit down for this)...25!  Yes, 25 years old!  My daughter was born when I was 27 in Alaska.  We are now stationed in Ft. Hood and even though my parents drive me nuts I really love this place.

So if you want to join in the fun go over to militaryspouserollercoaster

Your post made me laugh...I love how you say typical! I sometimes feel abnormal even in the National guard world!....I married my husband right after I turned 21 so I was somewhat on track with that one! The baby part tho...well, I'm about to turn 29 with no kids. Granted, that wasn't our plan - sometimes we dont have control over certain things - but sometimes it's weird being asked by a 21 year old who has one baby already and another one on the way where my kids are. It's just assumed sometimes!
