John 15:13 Veterans Day @ Baskin Robbins

Veterans Day November 11, such a meaningful day for us,  as Americans. We take the time to recognize the heroes among us. They are the men and women who served in our armed forces, the veterans of the United States of America military. 

We pay tribute to the men and woman who risked their lives, so that we can be free. The love the verse in the bible.

Greater Love Has no one than this; to lay down ones life for one’s friend. John 15:13 
 

On Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins will donate 10 cents from every ice cream scoop sold in its U.S. locations to the United firstclasscamoicecreaminstagramService Organization (USO), in honor of U.S troops and veterans

This donation will help the USO fulfill its mission to lift the spirits of America’s troops and their families at hundreds of places around the world and help ensure they have access to the programs and services they need.

With that, Baskin-Robbins is also celebrating military personnel all month long with its November Flavor of the Month, First Class Camouflage, which features a combination of Chocolate, Salty Caramel, and Cake-flavored ice cream, special Camouflage Waffle Cone and Waffle Bowl, decorated in green, tan and brown, they will be even be able to order First Class Camouflage Layered Sundae, which is made up of OREO® cookie pieces, caramel praline topping, hot fudge and topped off whipped cream

Baskin­Robbins is also committed to supporting veterans through a special veteran incentive program introduced in 2012 for U.S. military veterans seeking to open a Baskin­Robbins franchise in markets across the U.S.
oAs part of the program, the company waives the initial franchise fee of $25,000 for developing a new Baskin­Robbins location in select markets for qualified, honorably discharged U.S. veterans, making it easier for them to start their own business. 

What is the USO ? 

The United Service Organizations Inc. (USO Show) is a nonprofit organization that provides programs, services and live entertainment to United States troops and their families. Since 1941, it has worked in partnership with the Department of Defense (DOD), relying heavily on private contributions and on funds, goods, and services from various corporate and individual donors. Although congressionally chartered, it is not a government agency. The USO operates 160 centers worldwide. (Information from Wikipedia )

Did you know there is a USO in almost every airport?  It’s a room where they offer military personal, a place to relax and wait while waiting for their flight. A few years ago, we traveled from Corpus Christi, TX to Phoenix, AZ for the holidays. We were able to check out the USO in Houston, TX airport. Due to our four hour layover. The USO in Houston is beautiful, a refrigerator full of drinks, their was finger food, snacks for the kids, reclinable sofas. Not to mention a play area for the kids to play, with movies to watch, computers to access internet, and tv’s  to monitor flights. All around. Beautiful. We felt blessed and fortunate to be able to wait at the USO especially since we were traveling with our two kids at the time, our daughter and son of 1 years old. It made the time go by fast. All thanks to the USO and generous people who contribute to it. We thank you very much.

I Love my Boba Air {Giveaway}

Just when you thought Boba was the bomb. They come out with yet another amazing carrier, The Boba Air. ” This is the reason why I love you Boba” They made a simple to use ultra lightweight carrier, perfect  for travelers or any parent on the go – when you’re done, just fold, zip & stash away in your regular/diaper bag. The BobaAir is intended for children 15-45lbs. It comes in three different colors of your choice (black, white, blue).

Boba Review read on it on SewFatty.com  

The difference between the 3G and Air are the fact that the Air is for a quick easy assembly. The Boba 3G is made with padding and the thicker material structure. The Boba Air is made of Nylon fabric which makes it very lightweight and more breathable. (Especially for areas that are very hot – like Texas) It includes a sleeping hood and a large pocket to store you hood in when not in use. I use the hood while breastfeeding, or to hold Edwards head from going back. The boba air holds babies from 7-45lbs. 

Boba Review :) read on it on SewFatty.com

Little Edward loves being carried, he normally falls asleep soon after being on my back. My husband thinks its so awesome and cute that he loves to be on my back. Its a sense of security, I guess. Not to mention wearing him is the only way to get things done around the house and while out and about. So while I’m  doing chorus he gets a free ride and sure enough falls asleep. We used out boba air on our recent Christmas Trip to Arizona. My husband wore Edward on his back while shopping. I must say that the boba fits just like a glove on whom ever wears it. The straps are easily adjustable. It is comfortable and most importantly you are able to wear your baby close to while being comfy. We also took our 3G on our trip to Arizona & San Diego. My mom wore little Edward the entire time we were on my brothers ship, USS CARL VINSON, for his re-enlistment. Everyone was looking at her and some even asked ” is that a baby in there”? 🙂 They couldn’t believe it. Boba saved us from having to carry little Edward in our arms – you all moms know that gets very tiring. We couldn’t take a stroller because on the ship there is small spaces to walk through and tons of stairs to claim. So thank you BOBA you made it easy for us to be on a US NAVY SHIP.

Boba is US NAVY approved :) read on it on SewFatty.com

Home Decor for the Holidays

Christmas season is just such a fun time, from tree shopping to decorations and holiday music. Christmas is my favorite time of the year – like seriously. This year we were not able to decorate that much, due to us going out-of-state and celebrating the holidays with my family. Yet I still wanted some type of small Christmas decor. Hayley Jasmine Deigns sent me this super cute wooden plaque. It adds such a cute look to my room.
