It’s Friday – finally! And the best thing ever is that I was asked by Mrs K at Mrs. K and Captain J to host this week’s Milspouse Weekly Roundup. So welcome to visit Adventures of The K Family!
MilSpouse Weekly Roundup is a weekly get-together for MilSpouses, hosted by wonderful ladies stationed around the world. The current week’s host chooses next week’s host, and this way we keep the Roundup going. And if you for some reason miss a roundup posting, you can always check Weekly Roundup update by Wife on the Roller Coaster. And most importantly, MilSpouse Weekly Roundup is a great way to catch up with other spouses, so please link up your favorite blog entry from this week!
I had tons of plans for this special posting of mine, and what happened….?! I got completely swamped by travels this week. Jason and I flew to sunny California for Labor Day weekend. We had such a great time — enjoyed the sunshine and warm weather in San Diego. We got back late on Monday night, and on Tuesday morning at 0800 I was back at the airport – this time heading to Ketchikan and Sitka in southeast Alaska. I got back from my business meetings late on Wednesday night, had a more or less regular working day on Thursday, and in the evening I hit the road again… This time road tripping for almost 250 miles to tiny town of Healy, just outside of Denali National Park – for another work meeting as a first thing on Friday morning. And somehow in the middle of all this I even had time to get my university classes’ homework done – before the deadlines.
But I am sure at least some of you are visiting Adventures of The K Family first time ever, so brief introduction is in order, don’t you think?! My name is Nina, and I am happily married (since July 9, 2011) to Jason who is an Army Officer. We are stationed in Alaska, just outside of Anchorage, and have been here for a couple of years. He is my best friend and hero who always manages to make my day, no matter what is going on.
We both love traveling, wines, delicious food, are nerds, and spoil our little beagle, Tassu, way too much. We also enjoy all kinds of outdoors activities from skiing and hiking to biking although I am the health and fitness nut of the household, with a goal to qualify for Ironman race in Kona, HI, one day. In addition to all running, biking and swimming, I am also completely hooked to CrossFit as well as do some personal training and teach cycling classes.
I work full-time in the technical field, doing engineering in one of the world’s biggest corporations as well as I am working on my Psychology degree with an ultimate goal of getting PhD eventually. My professional interests are related to the trauma and military psychology, and would love to combine my technical background with psychology in the future. Ideally I’d be working with the PTSD population and developing new techology-assisted therapies such as Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy.
Lastly, I have been doing photography professionally for several years. Nowadays I mainly work through my photo agencies or do corporate/editorial assignments for the clients. For the pics, check out the Facebook, or KominiakPhoto‘s official site.
But now it is time to hear about you, so go ahead and link up your favorite blog posting from this week — I can’t wait to read about your adventures.
And also, check out the next week’s host Jane at A Few of My Favorite Things. She is an awesome Army wife blogging from sunny Hawaii.
