2012 Ultimate Blog Party Post

Ultimate Blog Party 2012


Welcome to Soldier’s Wife, Crazy Life! I am an Army Wife of 6.5 years. I have been married to my husband Ben for almost 10 years. When I met him the Army was apart of his past but in 2005 after being married 3.5 years with a 13 month old, my husband re-joined the Army. We spent 4 years in Germany and have lived in Clarksville, TN now for two. We are both originally from California. I was raised in Orange County and moved up to Sonoma County when I was 18.


Ben and I have three little boys! Daniel is 7.5 and is such a sweetheart. He also takes after his Dad and loves to make people laugh. Drew is almost 5.5 and is my little professor. In January he was diagnosed with Asperger’s and we are still getting use to everything that comes with it. We have started therapy and he is already doing so well. Right now he LOVES all things Lego Starwars, Lego Batman and Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. Joshua is almost 17 months old and it really getting into his role of toddler. He wants to play with all of his brother’s toys and he loves to listen to music.  He is starting to say more and more words which is really fun to watch.  His favorite word seems to be “door” and will be sure to let you know when you are anywhere near one.


I love to blog, read, take pictures, scrapbook (although I am years behind on my books,) travel, watch movies and sell Scentsy! I just recently promoted to Director and I am excited to see where the business will take me in the months and years ahead. I also have a photography blog, Julie Danielle Photography. I try to update it regularly but sometimes life gets in the way of that.

I blog about Army life such as deployments and getting through daily challenges, I am also a Lifetime Moms affiliate and will blog about Army Wives or other Lifetime shows and movies, I also love to read so I like to do a lot of book reviews. I also will blog about other random things that come to mind.

I love Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook and you can connect with me at those places as well :)

Please leave a comment and tell me more about you! I love to meet new bloggers :)

I have a giveaway going on right now for the Book, The 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman :)

    Saying hello from the UBP12. It is nice to "meet" you. My nephews all love Lego Star Wars too. Must be a boy thing 😉 I am way behind on my scrapbooks too. I have been lately making books online – though it is not quite as fun.

    Enjoy your weekend and hopping around during the UBP12.

    Gosh why didn't I meet you two years ago when you moved here, I have been here 9! I was just thinking that I need to finish my scrapbook from disney last summer. I love photography, and I have two boys obsessed with legos. My son who is 3 has sensory issues and goes to OT . I am starting to think he also has some type of panic disorder.

    Orginially they looked at Autism, but he is way to social. I am pretty sure he panic disorder was brought on by deployments and training. My husband has been home 9 out of the last 38 moths. Oh yeah, and my husband didn't even join the army until the first time until he was in his 20's. 😉
