What about The Pregnancy Pact, The Craigslist Killer, William & Kate, Amanda Knox story with Hayden Panettiere?  I could go on. Now you can access Lifetime movies anytime you want with the Lifetime Movie Club.

Calling All Branches of Guard and Reserve Spouses!!!!!!

When you think of the National Guard and Reserve what do you think of? Commercials talking about citizen soliders, the phrase "The weekend a month, two weeks in the summer," and those people called out for earthquakes, riots and floods. But there is so much more to who we are and what we do.

Are you a Guard or Reserve Spouse of the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy or Marines? Do you live within driving distance of Bordentown, NJ? If you answered yes then you'll want to continue reading. Words can not express how excited I am about a special event coming to New Jersey in a little over a month. For all of my years as a military spouse I have felt a twinge. One that has stayed with. One of being alone, different and out of place. I have never quite met any common understanding of military life as the wife of an AGR, then Active and now Traditional Status Airmen.We did all of this while remotely stationed at a location with no base housing, no commissary or exchange, or any support programs to speak of. The past fifteen years have been all about learning and adapting. It's also been about feeling left out, desperately searching for support, hearing the word 'No', and hearing the phrase "You're not active duty so we can't help you."

When you are in a room full of military spouses at an event you are more than likely one of a few that are just like you, if not the only one. People don't understand, even those that you think should often have no clue what its like. Events held for Military Spouse inevitably end up having almost nothing relevant to your struggles, and to hear of an event just for you is just something that rarely happens.

But the wait is over! On September 22 an event is being help for spouses of all branches that are Guard, Reserves, or remotely stationed. At this event you will have the opportunity to network with other spouses, talk about your struggles, learn about resources that are available to you....but most importantly I hope you gain the confidence to advocate for yourself.

If you or someone you know are a Guard/Reserve Spouse, or are maybe on orders isolated away from a traditional base consider coming or spreading the word about SpouseTalks. This interactive event is designed to focus on the unique experiences that make up our unique lives. Each person brings their own unique story to the table and we want to hear that.

Stop by and like Homefront United Network's Facebook Page, as well as my National Guard/Reserves/Remotely stationed specific page - National Guard Families

The Six Box ~ Care Packages for Military Spouses

I am so excited to share this with you all today! I stumbled across The Six Box on Instagram one day and I knew that I absolutely had to see what it is all about. A care package for military spouses. I love it!! The ladies over at The Six Box sent me their August box and I'm in love. This box is adorable and fun and I can see myself absolutely sending this box out to girlfriends that need a little pick me up for whatever reason - deployment, TDY, or just regular military life craziness. Founded by military spouses and made with them in mind, make this a wonderful business to support. Megan and Alana are two amazing women that have worked hard for this and Cammo Style Love is proud to support them!!

So, lets check out what is in August's box!

Look at this box! So fun right?

~ Evian Mineral Water Facial Spray - I'd never heard of this before. Apparently flight attendants use it quite frequently. I love that you can spray it over your make-up to refresh your face; but using it after cleansing your face is where it really makes a difference. Gently moisturizing and cleansing your face. Crazy right?

~ Sugar Goop Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil - It was about a year ago that I started using cleansing oil that I got from Julep. Again, another weird thing that I never used before, new existed, or even expected to work well. Who thought a 'tanning oil' would actually work as a sunscreen. And it smells good too!! 

~ Boom Chica Pop Kettle Corn : two words - Yum Yum!

~ Happy Tatts Metallic Chevron Temporary Tattoos - Do you guys remember Swarovski crystal tattoos? Oh my gosh I wore them all the time and they were my favorite!! So this really brought back the memories. I haven't busted them out yet because I'm really looking for the right opportunity. Make sure you are following me on Instagram so you can see them when I finally bust them out!!

~ Summertime Lyrics Print - Beautiful print that I'm currently hunting for the right frame for because it's going right up on the wall in my bathroom!

~ August 2016 Journal - This is probably my most favorite part of the box. It is a unique and special little thing. A small journal just for the month of August. The focus of this month's box is savoring summer. What better way to do that than journaling. I've been writing in a journal for years...decades really. I love it and it always makes me feel better. I have vivid memories of sobbing over the pages of my journal, getting the words out of my heart and onto paper. It was such a cathartic thing. This sweet journal is full of great writing prompts and encouraging words.

Pick up your SixBox for $39.95 and spoil yourself
or someone special in your life! Whose got your Six? Maybe this is the perfect way to thank them? Who would you give it to 
if you could send one box? Let me know!!

Three Surprising Things I learned During My Weekend at BronyCon!!

Earlier this month my daughter and I headed to Baltimore with one of my friends for our very first BronyCon! I know, stop, hear me out. It sounds crazy I'm sure. First I guess you might like to know what BronyCon is if you don't know. BronyCon is the premier My Little Pony convention. Yup, a My Little Pony Convention, celebrating the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I first heard about this event a couple years ago when I discovered the documentary Bronies. Who knew such a thing existed? Being the fact that its a small, small world I ended up meeting some of the people involved in the documentary. And despite the fact that some Bronies out there were looking for something a little different from the documentary; those of us that are outsiders were clued in on a whole fandom we probably didn't even know about.

Jose, my go-to Press guy! 

BronyCon Royalty - Aka Convention Chair!!

1. The People -  I definitely went in with pre-conceived notions, but left with a wildly different understanding of the fandom. The sheer variety of fans was surprising. Parents with their kids, older siblings with younger siblings, whole families, many people under one roof. Some fans grew up watching My Little Pony and were fans of the originals. Some of them are your all round Nerd. They like everything from Doctor Who, Star Trek, comic books and some even stumbled into the fandom by way of a friendly bet. It's simply another facet of their fandom.

The Fab Ingrid - voice of Raspberry Torte...Ami's favorite character from Strawberry Shortcake
She also voices Maud Pie 

YouTubers...The Ruby and Daddy Show!! Look them up! 

Fabulous Cosplayers!! Doctor Whooves

2. The Kids - The conference has a huge children's program!! They are particularly proud of their children's programming and I was also very very impressed. It never occurred to me that there would be specifically targeted children's events but there were tons! That was never something that was shown on the two documentaries (Bronies and A Brony Tale). They had a strict '14 and Under' policy and no picture policy. The events were thoughtfully put together and were really fun.

With Andrea..the voices of Ami's favorite ponies - Pinkie Pie and Shutterfly

Getting hugs from Applejack (Ashleigh Ball) 

3.The Fun - I didn't know just how much fun I would have! It was so fun. I didn't even get to experience as many of the panels as I wanted and I didn't get to one of the events where you learn to play the card game. There was just so much to do and so little time. I'd love to get more of my girlfriends to come next year with their kids. Who knew right?

Some of our MLP loot!
