Things to do – Fort Bliss

*Another post in an effort to put a little more info. out there about Army livin’…

Before coming to Fort Bliss, or which ever post we would be stationed at, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m very thankful to have been surprised by all the things to do! Last weekend, Brad and I went to “Rock the Fort.” It was a 4pm-10pm event where they had food, a beer garden (hello strawberry Fruli!), a “car” show, and an all-day concert with Fuel headlining it! The car show was a bunch of guys blasting Reggaetone music in their souped? supped? up Hyundais…I love Reggaetone, just not what I expected at a car show. Nevertheless, it was amusing! We had a pretty good time. We relaxed in the shade and laid out our blanket when the sun started to set. …And then we took a few pix before Fuel came out on stage… This is pretty typical..I’m very silly and affectionate with Brad and for some reason it makes him laugh..I’m okay with that. =)
If you’re a military spouse, make sure to join the facebook groups of where ever you are being stationed. These are just some of the resources where you can find out what’s happening on post and such. And most of these events are totally free! Tonight, the USO of Fort Bliss is playing Dark Knight on their patio so bring your chairs and blankets! It’s a free event, starts at 7:30. And then on Sunday, there is another free concert at Biggs Field. Brother Clyde and Billy Ray Cyrus are taking stage at 7 pm. I have no idea who Brother Clyde is, but I DO know that Billy Ray is Miley Cyrus’ father (…maybe she’ll be there?!)
If you are a mil spouse at Fort Bliss, join the “Fort Bliss Spouses” Facebook group…and also be sure to google your post’s MWR (Morale, Welfare, Recreation) groups and such. Hope this helps at least one person! Also, feel free to “friend” me on facebook. ( I’ll do my best to help you with anything you need! Happy Friday!
