MilSpouse (First) Friday Fill-In: July

Feel free to join in from here.

1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed?
I would change nothing about June, except the leaving family in Iowa part....again.

2. What was your favorite thing that happened in June?
Vacation to see family in Iowa. It was THE BEST vacation back home to date. It definitely made it that much harder to leave. :-/

3. What did you do to celebrate Independence Day?Since Independence Day just so happened to land on a Wednesday, I went over to a sweet friend's house to crochet. However, no crocheting got done. The hubs and kiddos came with to hang out with her husband and her kiddos. We planned to leave earlier than we did to watch fireworks at our regular location, but since we didn't, we went and watched fireworks with them. OH! And we got sparklers for the kiddos, too. It was perfect!

4. When you PCS, what items do you take with you and not let the movers pack (and if you do a DITY, what do you take with you and not box up) (thanks to Sespi at And You Never Did Think for inspiring this question)?
All of our important documents, to include last utility bills (printed off from the computer since we are paperless in this department). Dogs with their food and such. Eight days change of clothing. Small games that will pack in the suitcase. Swimsuits and beach towels for the hotels. And if we're traveling by vehicle -- a cooler with food and drinks. :)

5. What are you looking forward to in July?
Our oldest (Andrew) turns the magical 13 on the 11th. We are still ironing out something special and surprise-like for him. Getting together with my sweet friends. To be honest, since we live in Vegas, I am looking forward to July being over with. It's the hottest month out of the year. I like to be outdoors, and that just doesn't work in Vegas during this month. Starting and finishing a crochet blanket project for a sweet friend who found out she has a very rare and agressive form of Leukimia.
