She Got Married, Too: Meghan

I love reading about other couples. I love getting a sneak peak into their lives and seeing how they make their situation work. Some would say that I'm nosy. Which I'm fine with. Because enough people were open enough to take me up on this guest poster series and answer with honesty, heart, and humor. Enjoy :)

Name: Meghan Phair
Ages: 21
We live in: San Antonio, TX
What do YOU do? At the moment I’m a stay at home mom, but I’m working towards getting my RN.

What does HE/SHE do?
My husband is an MP(Military Police Officer) in the Army.

How long have you been married?
3 years on April 15

What holds the two of you together?
The love we have for each other. No matter whats going on in our lives, we always remember that we love each other very much and that’s the most important thing.

What do you argue about the most?
Probably money.

Do you have kids? If not, are you planning on them anytime soon?
Yes, an 18 month old son, his name is Aiden. And we’re about to welcome a baby girl in about 3 weeks. We are naming her Rylee.

Who cooks the most?
I do!
Who cleans the most?
We both do an equal amount of cleaning I’d say.

What was the biggest shocker of married life?
Your on your own with all these bills and mom and dad aren’t there to help anymore!

Where do you see yourselves in five years?
Out of the military, living back on the east coast, hopefully in a house, and I’ll either have my LVN or RN, and my husband will be working on a police force.

If you could give an engaged couple any advice (assuming they asked for it), what would it be?
RUN! Haha no…I guess just always remember to listen to each other and not to give up the second things seem to be going downhill. The first year is always the hardest in marriage. If you can get through the first year, you can get through anything.

 Meghan and I went to high school together. We never exactly hung out during those four years, but thanks to Facebook, I've gotten to know her a bit better and she's a sweetheart. I think I'm beyond fascinated/humbled/impressed by her military life, and I was so glad when she said she would do a post! I know that there are some other military wives who read this, and I'd love to hear your stories as well- if you're interested in doing a guest post- come talk to me!

(do you see this baby? Is he not...ridiculously adorable?)


  1. Oh my gosh. Those cheeks! I can't handle them - they are too adorable for words. I love the names you picked out too!

  2. I know! The cheeks! He'sjustscrumptious!!!

  3. very cool idea for these interviews!

  4. Quite an inspiring message. That little boy is a doll. The cheeks are cute, but check out that head of hair! Omiword! :)

    And I love that you, Emma, say you're nosy. I am an admitted people watcher and proud of it! :)

  5. Wow, a police officer and a nurse! What troopers!!
    Such a beautiful family : )

    And I agree about bills being a reality check the first few years, for SURE.

  6. I know. I hope my kids come out that good lookin'. I mean...I hope my kids turn out to be good people. Yes.
