Summer 2016 is here. #SummerCravings

Summer is here!!!

What are some of your summer cravings ??

I crave long walks on the beach, refreshing drinks, sweet yogurt dessert and relax on my deck with my amazing super comfy prana pants soaking up the sun and life and enjoying our beautiful kids. 

Our summer has been super amazing, since we recently moved out to PA. We have enjoyed family bbq’s, traveling and exploring more of PA. We recently discovered fireflies, while chilling outside on our deck. Living in San Diego, CA we never seen fireflies before except read about them. Now we get to enjoy the luminescent little lighting bugs and they are pretty amazing. We’re just enjoying the beautiful weather. 

Summer drink: I love me some Passion Tea Lemonade it is so refreshing and so good (its a copycat version of startbucks, except its way cheaper and less sugar). I recently made a bulk recipe to share with you all. Hope you love it as much as I do. 

Summer snack: I love Stonyfield Greek Yogurt (strawberry whole milk) it makes such a great post workout snack or anytime snack. It’s so delish. I also love Yo’Kids squeeze and of course Stonyfield fruit snacks (these are thee BEST snacks EVER!!)

Summer jeans: Yes, I like to wear pants in the summer time. I have fallen in love with Prana’s Kara Jeans. They are a low rise fitted skinny jeans. Organic cotton and polyester, elastane making them stretchy and super comfy. I love that they are a sustainable company that are mindful of our earth. The fitting on these jeans is like no other i’ve ever worn. They are thin, stretchy, and I can actually wear them in the summer time, without being hot.

4th Of July.

Military life is not always easy, some days are better than others. I love when we go out and about to a retail store, flower store, restaurant, amusement parks and we ask ” do you offer military discount” and their response is “of course we do”. There are no words to describe how amazing that feels. It’s not just the discount that is amazing of course, however the significance behind the discount. Which to us means that the store, company, restaurants supports our Troops.

There is nothing more rewarding than to see the appreciation and just so much love. I think thats the best part of my hubby’s job is making people smile and I could say the same thing for my brother. That being said, FTD and USO teamed up and are offering a USO Collection flower arrangement along with a few other cute arrangements. Now through 12/31/2016 FTD will be donating 5% of all sales from this collection to the USO. How amazing is that??

The USO is AMAZING!! Here is a little of what they do and offer.

“Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.

USO airport centers throughout the country offer around-the clock hospitality for traveling service members and their families. Our trademark USO tours bring America and its celebrities to service members who are assigned far from home, to entertain them and convey the support of the nation. And our many specialized programs offer a continuum support to service members throughout their journey of service, from the first time they don the uniform until they last time they take it off. “

We’ve used the USO plenty of times. We have visited the USO centers at the airports as well as in port. Such as San Diego, CA. They are always offering dinners and activities for your service members and their families. The USO has been very good to us, not to mention everyone around the world using these services. 

If you’d like to contribute, then please grab yourself and your mom, cousin, girlfriend one of these amazing arrangements and help our Troops. Shop the USO Collection

Huge!!! Thanks to all those who support our US Military and a HUGE thanks to FTD for sending my mother this beautiful arrangement!! God Bless You.

Happy 4th of July !! #tommeemommee

How did you spend Independence Day ? 

Ours was relaxing/ busy. Hubby had a four-day weekend. On 4th of July, we had to get our day started right, so we went to gym, after that we took our munchkins bowling, came home had lunch with our friends (military spouse with her kids – hubby is currently out to sea) then we gathered all our picnic stuff and drove on base to watch the fireworks.  San Diego is infamous for amazing firework shows, so we already knew it would be busy everywhere we went, so watching fireworks from base was simply amazing and not congested at all.

Our munchkins had a blast, and it was nice being able to spend the day with our friend Sonia and her kids. Tommee Tippee bowls and sippy’s to the rescue. We use them a lot around the house and when we’re on the go, which was exactly how our weekend was. We took them with us, on our mini picnic. They are our absolute favorite. Thank You Tommee Tippee for making amazing products.
