Proud of DH...and feeling smug about it...

DH got his bronze star today!  I'm very proud of him...and I'm feeling a bit smug because another wife was bragging to me yesterday that her husband would be getting his bronze star today and I said, "I'll be interested to see if DH gets one...he's not sure if he is or not."  So she comes back with, "Um, I doubt it.  They went mostly to command staff.  Your husband is really too low on the chain to be getting one."

I didn't say anything because I couldn't come back to that without being really tactless, and I am not one to "compete" with other wives like that.  I think it's uncouth and pretentious.  But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't feeling a litle secret, "Soooo THERE!" towards her right now...  ;-)



"And let's face it...I am hotter than you are."

interesting, I didn't realize getting a bronze star depended on rank;)

Congrats to your dh!

Who says stuff like that?  Seriously?  If I didn't know from personal experiece that some military wives can be super snotty, it would be hard to believe someone would say stuff like that!!  (Not you, HER).  It doesn't matter what rank you are, if you earn a bronze star, you earn a bronze star!  Congrats to your man!!

Congrats to your hubby! 

I would have been blown away by her comment, and probably too stunned to offer a comeback. Jeeze, what a B.
