KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! We are still busy over here with getting settled in. I know Ken and I will be utterly happy when we don't have to do anything extra to do...just a normal day-to-day routine plus our dates on the weekends. We will at least be on more of a schedule this coming week, as our kiddos start at their new school! And I've managed to get on a bit of a schedule with work, with just a few extra things on my to-do. I hope you all have a good weekend and enjoy some of my favorite links from the week. Grab a cup of coffee and sit back and relax. Image via Chevrons & Eclairs.

Support Our Troops with Operation Gratitude

I was researching ways to bake with Halloween candy along with other ideas, to bring you guys one of those "10 Things to Do With Leftover Candy" posts, when I came across an idea that deserves the spotlight all to itself.



Operation Gratitude sends about 100,000 care packages each year to deployed troops. They are currently accepting candy donations to add to their boxes. What a sweet way to give back.
Operation Gratitude accepts all kinds of donations and letters for our U.S. Service men and women, so I bet if you take a peek at their website you'll find there is a way you can give, even if you can't afford to give much. What I really love about the program is how they also give to Wounded Warriors and children of deploying soldiers, with projects like Battalion Buddies.

  2. My sister is a sergeant in the army. She's heading out soon for her third tour of Afghanistan. So I'm in full support of the troops, and this is a great cause.

    I'm also here for the hop. I'd love if you could check me out.
