So this weekend we finally had our halfway party… For those not familiar with the Navy, this is a party that the FRG (Family Readiness Group) throws to celebrate the halfway point in a deployment. Basically keep your spirits up. Thankfully I have an absolutely awesome FRG board and we threw an incredible party for all of our spouses.
I just need to give a huge shout out to Target for their clearance Valentine’s items. This decor ended up costing about $40 for everything!
We also had a little backdrop set up in the corner where we were recording video messages to send to the ship! Some of them got a little emotional and I was tearing up a little!
I was a little worried that we were not going to have enough food because the RSVP’s had been pouring in and this was going to be potluck style.
Well I did NOT need to worry! We had SO much food! Not an inch to spare on the counter!
Thank you to all of the wonderful families on our ship…. Seriously, if you are new to a sea command, find your FRG! Not all of them are full of drama and catty women!
And my board is full of wonderful women… Taking on this position was SO outside my comfort zone, but I have made such wonderful friends in the process. I couldn’t have asked for a better team!
