Grand Bohemiam Hotel in Asheville - Very Impressive

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, November 30, 2014,
My husband took me and my son to Asheville, NC for the first time for our 2 year wedding anniversary celebration. I've heard so much about Asheville and about the Biltmore Estate. When we went there, everything exceeded my expectations, especially our hotel stay at the Grand Bohemiam Hotel near the historic village. He bought the Romance package which included a massage, breakfast and champagne for two so I felt like a queen for a day! 

Here are some pictures from our trip. It was very family ...

Lee's Bakery in Atlanta Georgia - Sailor Girlfriend Review

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, June 8, 2014, In : Atlanta 
We went to Lee's Bakery (4005 Buford Hwy NE, Atlanta, GA 30345) for the first time when we were visiting the town. It was so busy. It took us 15 minutes before we were able to put in our orders. A lot of people dined in as well. They serve soups and Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches with the special offer of "Buy 5 get 1 Free" for those taking banh mis to go. 

We ordered 2 special banh mi, 3 grilled pork and 1 grilled chicken. I do not recommend getting the grilled chicken. I highly recommend the ...

3 Things I Wish Someone Told Me About the First Months for a Baby

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, June 8, 2014, In : Motherhood 
As a first time mother of a 4 month old baby, I've learned so many things about taking care of a baby. However, there are certain things I wish I knew so I could make a better decisions about some of these things early on.
1. Flat Heads 
Every reading source and and health professional would tell me to put my baby on his back to prevent SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). What they didn't tell me is that this can cause flat heads. I noticed my baby started getting a flat side on the back of hi...

Amount of breastmilk I am producing - from less than 1 oz to now over 5 oz

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, February 25, 2014, In : Motherhood 
When I first started pumping my breast milk, my first 15 min session produced under 1 oz and that's including both breasts! On the 3rd day after I gave birth was when I started pumping to get more milk coming. Now, 15 days later, I am finally producing over 5 oz. What a difference and relief! I'm finally making a surplus for my baby.

 We are no longer supplementing my baby's diet with formula.

I always get sleepy within 30 minutes after taking my prenatal vitamins

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Saturday, January 18, 2014, In : pregnancy 
I was prescribed prenatal vitamins after the doctor confirmed that I was pregnant in June. It has folic acid which is supposed to be really good for expectant mothers. For some reason, I always get really tired and sleepy after I take them. I started taking them every day at the beginning and I would just get so tired, I couldn't do anything else but sleep. However, every time I would forget to pop one in my mouth, I wouldn't be tired that day. Then, I started to just switch off every other d...

Unemployment Benefits if you Quit Your Job as a Military Wife due to Relocation

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Monday, January 13, 2014,
When I moved from California to South Carolina due to my husband's contract with the navy ending and he found a new job in a different state, I had to quit my job. After sadly turning in my resignation letter after 6 years of working for the company and taking a couple of weeks to move, someone asked me if I had put in my unemployment claim because I was a military wife.

I didn't think I was eligible because I voluntarily quit. But because I had to quit due to my military spouse's job situati...

When maternity pants are all long at the store, having a sewing machine is so handy

Weight Gain and Maternity Clothes

At 25 weeks, 2 days I weighed 126 lbs. Before I got pregnant, I was 120 lbs so this was the first significant weight gain since I've been pregnant. I will grow more rapidly soon. I bought my first pair of stretchy pants from Ross around this time because none of my jeans fit anymore. 


It was alterations time because all of the pants in the maternity section are long and I am a short woman. I recently learned how to sew last month in October and in the last 4 we...

What I miss most, now that I am pregnant

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, In : Motherhood 
When I found out I was pregnant, I cut out alcohol, caffeine and tried to stay far away from people who smoke cigarettes as much as possible. 

I must admit, I did have decaffeinated coffee once on a plane and had a few sips from my husband's coke. But that was all. I don't miss drinking alcohol at all but I do miss drinking my caramel frappucino from Starbucks. I've been drinking those since I was in college, or was it late high school? Anyway, I miss my coffee.

Instead of coffee, I would drink...

17 weeks pregnant and still not craving meat. Maybe I'm becoming a vegetarian?

Posted by Sailor Girlfriend on Wednesday, September 4, 2013, In : Motherhood 
This is my very first pregnancy and ever since the first trimester, I have not been craving meat. It actually made me really nauseous thinking about eating meat so I stayed away from it as much as possible. The things I do crave are cereal with milk, ice cream, cheese, salads and fruits. Occasionally I'll crave some ramen noodles with a crack of an egg. It's kind of an easy egg drop soup for me. I feel like I'm becoming more of a vegetarian since I've gotten pregnant. I guess my body doesn't ...

One year with Sailor Boyfriend

Posted by Till Master on Tuesday, January 17, 2012,
I have a boyfriend who I've been with for over a year and I just love him so much. He is a "nuke", which is what the Navy calls sailors who work with nuclear power.

I am so proud of him and I feel like a lot of my friends who don't have a military boyfriend cannot relate to the pride that I feel for him.

This website is dedicated all of the girllfriends, fiances and wives of sailors who serve for our country. If you would like to share your story and have me publish here in this blog, feel fre...
