VS Giftcard GIVEAWAY + Guest post

11.23.2012

Hi ladies.  I am out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday so Amy is taking over for today.  Spend some time with her and be sure to check out her Victoria's Secret gift card giveaway below!
***
Hi - I'm Amy! I'm the author of "Trials & Triumphs of Loving my Sailor!"

I want to thank Jamie for opening up her blog to me, and allowing me to do a guest post! She is the sweetest and I can't wait to see her adorable little "boy"!!
So, the holidays are fastly approaching.. and it's going to be here & gone before we blink. Christmas is my 2nd favorite holiday - due to decorational reasons. Thanksgiving is my 3rd favorite. I love getting together with friends & family - celebrating over turkey & football. I think I look forward to the turkey coma nap, after all that cooking, the most.
This is our second Thanksgiving in our house & my third Thanksgiving with Ben. Our first Thanksgiving we were thankful enough to get to be in Texas! Only because he deployeed Dec 1st... which put a big damper on how fast our trip went. I'm loving this whole "shore duty" thing & loving knowing he will be all mine for 3 years!! Wahoo!
For Thanksgiving this year, I agreed to open our house and my kitchen up to Sailors who don't have family here. Otherwise they will be served a Thanksgiving meal on the ship.. and I think that is sad. They put their life in danger, travel on a ship for months and then have to celebrate the holidays there too? If they aren't deployed.. I have a hard time digesting that. So I'll throw on a couple of extra potatos, cook about 5 dozen deviled eggs and listen to the various football games in the background.

My wonderful Roomie has agreed to help me put the lights on the house and help put the tree up too! I love the bargain but I would have opened up my house anyway. What a better way to say "Thanks" then to be able to really thank our men and women who serve with a hot meal? I'm pretty sure this will become  tradition and I'm pretty sure we will extend this for Christmas and New Years too.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope that everyone stays healthy and safe.
I'd love to hear about your Thanksgiving plans, so please come visit me here and tell me what you and your family are doing for the holidays! Share pics or just simply leave your blog URL in my comment box.
I know that spending the holidays with our soldiers can be a rare treat. So to help you celebrate the time you have, I am giving away a $25 VS gift card! Get whatever you want on me!!

To all military spouses - I will be hosting Military Love Stories the whole month of Feburary on my blog! Send me your love story via e-mail & let me know the date you'd love to have. At the end of the month I'll ask all those who did a guest post to enter a giveaway. The giveaway will be A dozen roses too TWO lucky bloggers!! So please check out your calendar, send me your love stories & enter the Rose giveaway!!
