Katie, I promise I didn't forget! Katie gave me this amazing award for my attitude (which I am very unsure of at times). But either way, thank you, it really means a lot.

I'm not sure how Katie and I got acquainted either, but I'm so glad we did! Her and her mom and awesome supporters of our troops and sent multiple goodie boxes to Stryker's company during the deployment. Love you girl!

I feel like I have a lot of "sisters" in this Army life we lead. So many of you have gone through or are going through deployments right now. It is hard to stay positive during these times, but so many of you do it...and with grace. The people I nominate are:

1. D.A.R. - She is an amazing woman, student, and military wife. Murphy has not been nice to her this deployment, but she takes every crisis and turns it into a learning experience. I admire her, and hope one day I am lucky enough to meet her in person.

2. Lindsay - I haven't been reading her for that long, but she is so in love with her soon-to-be husband that it just makes me smile. I'm so excited for the wedding pictures!

3. More than an Army Wife - A new mom, with a deployed hubby. She posts pictures of her little "Mootz" frequently, and I've yet to hear her complain about being a mom by herself while Stonewall is gone.

4. Tucker - Tucker is doing a kitchen remodel while her hubby is deployed. Love it! What a great accomplishment during deployment. This girl is clearly not sitting and sulking. Head on over and help her pick the kitchen sink!

5. The Mrs. - Despite being constantly plagued by a crazy phobia of her trunk flying open while she's driving, she trucks on raising two wild young boys, incubating a third, and cooking without eggs, all while her husband flies in and out of town... And get this, she does it without complaint!

6. J.L.S. - Her sweetie just left home after R&R and she's trying to get her bearings back after getting used to having him around again, yet her attitude remains grateful for the time they had together.

7. JLC - JLC's "Bumbee" was just home on R&R and she had some pretty amazing time with her hubby. Don't miss her "humps and pumps" story. It's sure to make you either laugh til you cry or pee your pants.

8. KD - I am inspired by KD's recent attack of CrossFit. All of a sudden she decided she wanted to try it, and now she's a CrossFit machine!

9. ens - Her man deployed recently, and despite not hearing his voice in 6 whole weeks, her attitude has stayed AMAZING!

10. Teresa - She just passed the halfway point in deployment. She blogs daily and is thisclose to R&R.
