Here goes nothing.

Bake Boutique Inc. is the name of what will eventually be a booming cake and baking business which will land wherever the Secretary of Defense and U.S Army sees fit. Fingers are crossed for a "PCS"* to Fort Drum in Upstate New York next Spring, but for now we are headed to Fort Sill Oklahoma on Sept 2nd for the Captains Career Course. Since I am not your average army wife and barely know the 23847274298742837 official army acronyms myself, I will note the official definitions below my post and we can learn them together. Who cares right? Well, if I don't learn them and enter this lifestyle.... It will be the equivalent of studying to speak fluent french and applying it while living in Egypt. Life will be way more difficult than it needs to be. I have been married to someone in the Army for 3 years, together for 5 and still don't know these terms you ask? Well that it what this blog is about. It is going to be my therapy through a MAJOR transition in my life. I spent the last 12 years in NYC working in the fast paced fashion industry and getting completely burnt out on the never ending race for the new thing. I am also over the fact that New York's edge, what it was always know for is gone. Straight men wear purses, think it's edgy to dislike sports and drink champagne. I want to walk through 90% of Brooklyn and have the hair stand up on the back of my neck from fear and the urge to get the F*** out of there because I do not belong. It basically doesn't exist anymore and I'm sorry, that's not my New York. Now needless to say if you dig, you will find remnants of the old New York... but it is so far and few between that I am too lazy to look. Having that said, after a baby, a layoff and the decision for my husband to go career army for the next 14 years... here I am. Documenting my all American adventure to capitalize on my passion of baking, raise my daughter and to quote a friend I respect very much, live "an honorable life".

  1. My husband thinks a better analogy for my acronym issue is speaking french in Siberia. How did I know someone was going to say "a lot of people speak french in Egypt. Oh well.
