MilSpouse Blog Hop!

I'm having tons of fun looking through all these lovely blogs! So decided to join in!

Here's the link if you want to join in too!

My Bio:
My name is Gretchen. Hubby and I have been together for since we were 16! We've been married for 4 years. We have a lovely 3-yr-old daughter named Layla.

We are stationed at Ft. Bragg in NC. Hubby is currently on his 2nd tour in Afghanistan and Layla and I are holding down the fort here at home! When he returns from overseas, we have orders to move to Ft Benning which is much closer to home for us so we are super excited!

I love to blog. As we all know, military life is crazy busy but I love to share my life with others. On my blog, you will find crafty stuff, garden stuff, mommy stuff, deployment stuff and stuff about my small sewing business that I have been running for about a year now! That's alot of stuff!
I hope you find something for yourself here. Something to inspire, uplift or comfort you.
God knows we all need a little bit of that!

Thanks for checking out my blog! I look forward to chatting with you all!

Aches and Pains...

About a year ago, a very good friend of mine and I traded crafty things.

I made her an apron, she made me a heating pack. I'm beginning to think I got the better end of the deal! That apron was one of the first I had made, and probably not the cutest. But this heating pad has been a life saver for me! I get knee and back pain when I sew too much, so I pop that baby in the micro for a couple minutes and get instant relief! Love it!

Hop over to her shop, cuddlemeclose01, where her heating pads are way cuter than the one I got a year ago. I think I'm going to buy another one! I cannot say enough about these things! They have saved my back 3 days in a row!

Oh yeah... check out her other shop too! She has super gorgeous nest rings, great for Mother's day!

I hope youre having a wonderful weekend!
