So it's official, I'm a Navy Wife. DH (wow) bought me my "I love my Sailor" car magnate today.
Now for my "disaster" which was really funny. We were married in the base chapel and DH wore his cracker jacks. We had gone outside for some pics and when we reentered the chapel someone pointed out some dirt on the floor and directed me around it so the dress wouldn't get dirty. Then someone pointed out the dirt was on DH's shoe. He reached down and pulled off his heel. He'd had the same dress uniform shoes for 12 years and they had dry rotted. Lucky for us there is an NEX on the other side of the parking lot from the chapel so DH ran in on our way to the reception to buy a new pair (after I convinced him to do it). Everyone let him jump line and the clerk told him the average life of those shoes is one year. So the moral of the story is that if your FI is planning to wear his uniform you may want him to check out his shoes to make sure they are intact.
