Let's Help: Organizations that Help Veterans

See the handsome devil on the left with the machine gun in hand?
That's my dad.
Otherwise known as the Grandpop.
He was in Vietnam.
Late 1960's.
He is a Vet.  He fought long and hard and has earned the benefits given to him by our government in this day age.
The nice thing is there are other organizations in our country, not associated with the government, that help out veterans.  Organizations that help veterans are in demand!
In the South Jersey/Philadelphia area alone, there are numerous organizations to get in contact with to help the Vets.  All the vets, WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Afghanastan, vets deserve help.  I am sure in your neck of the woods, it's the same.
You can donate your time, clothing, even your cars to help them.  I have done a little to help the vets.  It's a cause dear to my heart (ahem, see photo...again!).  
One of my favorite things to see, especially on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, are the Vet who are donating their time, still, to see that other Vets get the recognition they deserve.  From hoisting the American Flag to giving speeches these Vets do what ever they can do help out their fellow brothers and sisters. 
I am raising the kids to always give back.  Not only is my Dad a Vet, but my Poppy was in WWII and was on the USS Missouri when the treaty was signed.  The Nana has a photo to prove it. 
It's a blessing to see that so many organizations will help a Vet.  It always not that easy to get help but they will aid you in trying to get it.  Plenty of Vets come home to nothing.  They have to start over and what a better way than reaching out to these groups and having them reach back and help them.  It really brings a smile to my face to see Vets get the necessary assistance they need to get their normal lives back. 
Tell me, do you have a Vet in your life? Are they getting the help the need?

Future LDS Sister Missionaries This Is For You!

My name's Meghan and I am LDS.
While I was born and raised in the religion, I did not go on a mission.

I do know lots of young women that have gone and plan on going so this is where I come in.
For you lovely future sister missionaries I am going to show you how to be modest yet trendy.

Check out some absolutely stunning LDS Sister Missionary Clothing.  Besides sharing the love of the Gospel, Sister Missionaries must be extremely modest.  Not nun habit modest because 1.  Mormons do not have Nuns & 2.  A Nun's Habit is really, really modest or at least the ones I remember from growing up.

So I want to share some beeeeee-U-tiful dresses, skirts and such that I have found.  I'm actually thinking of purchasing them for myself because a girl can always use new clothes.

Check out this little diddy:

I love, love, love the ruching across the bodice not to mention the lovely sash that is off to the side of the dress at the top. 

Best part, when you sit, the dress still covers the knees.  Modest? Yes.  Trendy? You betcha.

Up next...this cute little skirt called "Something Treasured Skirt". 

Who doesn't love polka dots?
Pair this cutie patootie with a sweet cardigan and BAM! Instantly modest but instantly in style.

Guess what else?
They have extended sizes!!!
This shirt, which I think is simply gorgeous, comes in size XXL.

How sweet is that shirt?
I see flowers on everything and I love how the shirt flows and just skims the body.  Showing a little, but keeping it on the extreme modest side.

I normally dress modest and manage to look trendy doing it.

You don't need to hootch it up to be on mark.  Modest leaves a little bit of wonder and shows that you care about my opinion.

I do not have any little girls but if I did, I'd definitely be looking at all these LDS Sister Missionary Clothing that are offer.

Tell me, did you serve a mission? Are you planning on a serving a mission?

Got Men? You need the Best Shave Soap out there...

There they are.
Those men of mine.

Not another hormone filled female in my home to share the ins and outs of shaving with me.  One would think the boys (the 19yo & the 14yo...who has grown to be the same height as his brother in less than 6 months) would consult their father on what to use to shave shave soap , cream, gel.  Just look at their dad...hairy!  He usually has a full beard but will shave it off often.  Luckily that little one is not hairy...for now.

I digress.  The real issue is that facial skin needs TLC.  Those are some handsome boys and man that I have and I want to keep them looking good. 

After a small fiasco with the oldest son using my scented shaving gel for his face and breaking out like there is no tomorrow, he asked for my help.  I knew the day would come!  Finally.

I suggested good ole fashion soap but not just any soap...the Best Shave Soap you could get.  The worse thing to get is the skin on your face irritated.  Bobster, the handsome one in red up there, has been using best shave soap for years.  The skin on his face is like a baby's bottom.  He, like Tim, learned the hardway that irritation is a pain in the tushie and very unpleasant. 

The one thing with soap is you must take your time.  Slow down, enjoy the experience.  The slower you go, the more precise shave you get and the less likely you are to cut and nick yourself.  If you ask me, it also lets you enjoy the scent that some soaps come with.  I love the relaxing.

I tell the boys, especially the 14 yo who has just started to shave, to treat your face like a woman treats her legs.  With care.  Slow, easy and precise.  Treat the skin like that and look good always. 

The biggest lesson..don't chintz out on what you use.  Don't buy the mediocore soap.  Buy the best because you are the best.  Of course, this works out in their favor because "mom" or "the wife" will pick up the tab...for now. 

I'm not going to lie either...the best shave soap that I buy for the family is great.  So great that I will use it on my legs.  No, I do not use any of their razors.  Ok! Fine! Occasionally I have but not in a while (I got a good deal on some razors!!).  I find that the facial soap they use leaves my legs like their face, soft and smooth.  The perfect combination. 

So tell me, what do you use?  Or what does your man use?
