Tomorrow is the OFFICIAL drawing for a Sony eReader for our military families! Enter today. I received one last week and can I tell you how nice it is?!?! I sat here in my comfy living room chair, logged onto my local-library’s website, downloaded four eBooks and was reading one of them on my e-reader within minutes. So very cool!

Although it is too late to send a Valentines Message via Stars & Stripes print edition you can still submit one for online viewing. Still very cool! Read more here: http://militaryblog.militaryavenue.com/2010/01/send-your-true-love-valentines-message.html
This morning I ran across another great deal! Thank you to Army Wife Network for bringing this to my attention: “Send a Free Military Sweetheart’s Photo Book for Valentine’s Day” You do have to pay the FedEx shipping but still a great deal! You could print it up for free, ship to you and then include it in a care-package to your deployed loved-one. What a wonderful touch of home! Deadline is February 13th.

Tonight Hubs and I are headed out for a Date Night. Our 16 year-old is going to babysit his 2 younger brothers for just a few hours. Believe it or not I think (or at least as far as I can remember) this is one of the first times he has had to watch them for more than 30 minutes. But getting out as a couple is SO important … and going out to eat without having to entertain younger ones is such a blessing. If you are in arms reach of your spouse don’t wait to Valentines weekend to woo your loved one… it should be an all year event.
Again a big thank you to all of those organizations that support our military-families! Particularly, Borders, Stars & Stripes and LifePhoto. It is nice to know when America supports the military family!
