My cycle hadn’t started by the time I returned home from 3 weeks in Kentucky, taking care of my mom after her hip replacement. I assumed the... Read More→ The post A + B = baby C appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

Hello, hello! It’s been a while since I’ve written– ever since I returned to Iowa at the end of March, life has gotten incredibly busy! To give you a quick synopsis of what’s been happening around these parts, I started another college class (International Business— it’s very difficult!), it’s been the “busy season” at my day... Read More→ The post Andrew’s Promotion to Staff Sergeant appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

The past week and a half have been an absolute whirlwind. Last Monday, we learned that Mom’s hip replacement surgery, which we anticipated taking place this summer, was quickly scheduled for March 7th. During the busiest part of the year for my job, I had just a week to wrap up everything, find replacements for... Read More→ The post A Temporary Extended Stay in Kentucky appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

One of the most exciting things about being a military wife is all of the cool places that my husband and I could potentially live. Hawaii, Germany, Italy, South Korea… the list goes on and on! Although my friends and immediate family never expressed it in so many words, I’d imagine they were also excited... Read More→ The post My Sister Brittany’s Visit to Iowa appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

This year, instead of traveling back to Kentucky for Christmas, Andrew and I decided to use our holiday leave for New Years. We originally planned to visit our friends Tony and Katelyn in Pennsylvania, but a last-minute Army thing for Tony ruined those plans. Still wanting to travel while we both had the same week... Read More→ The post A Weekend Trip to Chicago over New Years appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

Sometimes I need to blog about what’s on my heart and mind. Enter: Coffee Chats. Imagine sitting down with a friend, sipping on coffee, and catching up on life.  A few weeks ago, as I drove home from a girls’ night with some ladies from my church, my mind wandered back to this time last... Read More→ The post Coffee Chat 2019 appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

One of the unique quirks about Recruiting life is that unlike the active-duty Army units we’ve experienced thus far, the Battalion that Andrew is currently assigned to is spread across 4 states (Minnesota, Iowa, and the Dakotas.) With the majority of leadership based in Minneapolis, the Recruiting Command holds an annual training for all of their recruiters... Read More→ The post Annual Training in Minneapolis + My First Military Ball appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

Helloooo!!! I unintentionally took nearly an entire month off from blogging, and honestly, it was incredibly refreshing! I’m excited to be back to blogging, but this upcoming year will bring some changes in how I maintain this little space on the web and my social media accounts. You’ll understand more of what I mean when... Read More→ The post 2019 New Year’s Resolutions + Bible Verse of the Year (and a look back ...

I started my Christmas blogging break last week but forgot to share our family Christmas card before signing off, as is a tradition around these parts. This year’s card photo was taken at the Color the Wind Kite Festival in nearby Clear Lake, Iowa. I hope each of you has a very Merry Christmas and a... Read More→ The post Merry Christmas! appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

I remember the first time my husband went TDY (on a military “business trip”) after we were married. Just 4 months into marriage, he went to Fort Bragg for Air Assault school for 3 weeks. It was a disaster– an experience with bedbugs, teenage punks smearing dog poop under my car handles, and more loneliness... Read More→ The post What I Learned When My Husband Was Gone for 2 Months appeared first on ...
