  1. fit bit | i purchased one of these for david last year and he still wears it every single day! there are some newer ones out that look SO COOL, but there are a variety all in different price ranges to choose from as well.

2. wireless bose ear buds | this is another david approved gift. he actually asked for these specifically, and i borrow them whenever i can. these are great for the active guy! running without a headphone cord bouncing on your neck makes the run so much more enjoyable!

3. google home | the thing you never knew you needed! it’s a fun gadget and for those that grew up with disney’s movie, smart house, you’ll appreciate it that much more!

4. grill set | we registered for these and they’re a huge hit. this is a perfect gift for the grill master!

i can’t believe it took me this long to share this dress because it is hands down one of my favorites! also, i don’t think you can beat the price on it!!

i wore this on the rainy streets of new york and felt like a million bucks the whole time. honestly, i forgot it was even raining! i was reminded after a stranger kindly shook off their umbrella a little too close, right  before entering the coffee shop right next to me. good ole new york.

somehow that little incident didn’t phase me, i fell in love with the city and am still on the campaign train to move there next.

Veteran’s Day is a day that holds special meaning for me. it’s a day to celebrate those that risk their lives so we can live freely. so, when i get the chance to thank a veteran, i take it. when i get the chance to make them feel special on a day honoring them, i take it.

as an army wife, i feel like i get to glimpse into a whole new world called military life where they speak a foreign language called acronyms. i’ll be honest, half the time [okay, most of the time], i have no idea what is going on or what most things actually mean. but i do understand the long hours, the hard work, the dedication and the sacrifice.

and i do understand there are many acronyms that i am very thankful for, like AAFES Exchange, who lives up to their mission which includes, “where you go we go…” even when overseas,i can have a little piece of home and shop for both everyday and specialty items.
