Hello? Is this thing on?

Testing.. testing.. 1, 2, 3...

Okay.. Let me introduce myself. My name is Christina, and I am a Navy wife. On September 27, 2008 I married an amazing man. On October 27, 2008 that amazing man left for boot camp to become a US Sailor. We are currently stationed in Virginia. My husband is on the USS Enterprise. We have been in Hampton Roads since June of 2009.

A little more about myself:

I will be 23 in February.
My husband and I are from a small town right outside Nashville, TN.

We are what some may call "Rednecks" and we're not offended. We love Nascar and Football, camping out at Bristol Motor Speedway.. etc.
I have 1 dog named Riley Roo.. Mostly call her Roo or Roo-Roo. She is a Red Nose American Pit Bull Terrier. She is amazing. I have had her since she was 4 weeks old. Now she is a little over 3 years old. She was a rescue. I can't wait to rescue another Pit Bull.
I have 1 cat. He's a mess. I found him dodging cars in a Sonic Drive in. Thought about naming him French Fry, but we decided on Musket. He's roughly 8 or 9 months. He was tiny when I found him. Now he's one of the biggest cats I have seen. Not a fat cat, just a BIG cat. He and Roo are the Best of friends. Crazy how insepratable they are.
I am a very creative/ artsy person. I love making graphics and tshirt designs for military wives and family. I have 2 tshirt shops. and Check'em out. I'll make you a custom designs and give you a 15% discount if you mention this blog! :)
I have been modeling since the Fall of 2007. It is another passion of mine.
I sometimes scrapbook and occasionally draw.

I recently started the 365 Photo Project. You can view the photos at

Anyways, Welcome to my Crazy world of being a Navy Wife. Hope you enjoy what I blog about in the Future.


  1. so how do you do it? being a navy wife? im soon to be one in december of this year. None of my friends are involved with military so i cant go to them and ask what to expect. hes finally comming back stateside for his new command for the past two years hes been in japan and i have no idea what to be expecting when we do move to where hes going to be. if you would let me know you can email me at

  2. Like you, I had noone to talk to and ask what to expect. I just take it one day at a time. Being a military wife and military family is a way of life. You ask how I do it, but I can only tell you why I do it. I do it because I love him.

    I wanted to make friends with girls who understood the military life (or who were living the military life) so I joined Military Wives groups on facebook. This has helped a lot. I met my best friend off of facebook. Her husband is also in the Navy. Facebook is great for Military and their families in my opinion. I have learned so much from the girls there.

    I also enjoy reading military wife books. I have a small collection of roughly 12 books now. Some I have yet to finish reading. I have learned a lot from these books. Some things about the military that my husband didn't even know.

    Feel free to ask any questions you have. I will answer them to the best of my ability.
