Red, White and Blue

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.

SewFatty’s Life Goals for 2015

Normally, I don’t make any New Years Resolutions. For the simple fact, that if I fail within days. That  feeling of failure is no fun. However, I do like to set goals. They are self accomplishments that I want to do within the year. Not sure if, that fits in as a resolution or what. For some reason I find goals different then a resolution 🙂 

My goals this year, is to be the Best Father and Mother to our munchkins. My hubby will be gone almost the entire year. Which means, I will be mom and dad. I’m praying for strength throughout this year. I will need it.

Secondly, just continuing to give my munchkins the healthiest foods. Stonyfield is a product that is , full of protein and vitamins for my kids. I don’t feel bad giving them more then one yogurt at a time. I want them to see that being healthy, fit is such an important thing. I want them to grow up having a healthy mentality. Does that make sense ? I have also have fitness goals. That, I will accomplish and i’m super excited to get back in the gym and do work. 

 I want to enjoy the small moments with family. Sometimes, we caught up with social media and our phones that we tend to forget to live in the moment. I want to soak up all those moments. For they will grow up and have their own lives to live. 

Lastly, I want to get closer to GOD. I was raised catholic and soon after my parents became born again Christian’s. God has always been a part of my life. I love him. Therefore, I want to know him better by reading the bible more and just becoming a better Christian? not sure, if that makes sense. It’s like when someone asks you something about the bible and you know there is a verse in the bible about that. However, you don’t know where its at. (yes, its easy to google) I don’t want to do that. I want to be able to respond back with “Yes it’s in so, and so book/verse”.
