Hottest 2007 Calendar, and....Shopping!:)

Sometimes supporting the troops can be...mmm... easy on the eyes!Image

From the website  


You may have heard about it or seen it in the media, now you can order the 2007 America's Heroes Reconnaissance Marines Calendar for yourself and/or all your friends. 100% of the proceeds go to our wounded heroes and their families as directed by those who have been awarded the Purple Heart.


And today, my son's fiancee and I went SHOPPING! for the Marine we have just co-adopted:) We went WAY overboard, but had a super fun time putting together his first care package. Picture two women going through Wal Mart,lol, saying "Oh, we have to get THIS...and what about THAT?" and madly throwing things into the cart. 
Naturally, we went with a 'Halloween' theme This guy is either going to think we are completely nuts (not an impossibility) or realize that we were having an absolutely wonderful time shopping to try and send just a little bit of 'home' to a complete stranger, as our small way of trying to say 'Thank You' and 'Someone is thinking of you.'
If you'd like to see how much fun shopping like that can be? You can always stop by Soldiers Angels and adopt a soldier yourself!!  There were over 700 soldiers submitted recently, so 'Adoptive Angels' are really,really needed!!
Well, that's the 'eye candy',lol, and the news for today from here in our neck of the woods. Hope everyone has a good weekend, and God bless our Troops!
