Branch of service: Navy
Where currently stationed: Pensacola, Florida
I have been visiting my husband here in Pensacola for 6 months and have lived here full-time for 1 month.
Favorite restaurant in the area:
Tacky Jacks in Gulfshore, Alabama. It is a short drive (20 or 30 minutes) from Pensacola. The food was decent and the service was good but it is the location that makes it special. It is right on the water. Boats come up to the dock to grab lunch. The view is gorgeous.
Previous duty stations:
Honolulu, Hawaii & San Diego, California

1. Drive to other destinations. We couldn't do this in Hawaii so this feels like a real treat! We have done weekend get-aways in Destin, Florida, Biloxi, Mississippi, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Mobile, Alabama.
2. Hang out at the pool. The weather is wonderful in Florida. It is hot and sunny. Perfect pool weather.
3. Go to Cordova Mall. It is the local mall. Most of the good restaurants, Target, Toys r Us, etc are all in the same area as the mall.
Favorite duty station so far:
Honolulu. We were stationed there for 3.5 years. We spent most of our married life there and started our family there. I really enjoyed most things about living in Hawaii. The best part to me was that it was so easy to get into an outdoor adventure like hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, exploring the different communities around the island.

My Mom. No question. The smartest, most rational, kind, dedicated woman I have ever known.
