Veteran's Day with Baskin-Robbins | Pink Wings
I love Veteran's Day. It's a chance to brag about and thank the veterans in my life: my gramps who lost his leg in WWII, my Dad who served 22 years in the Army, my father-in-law who did 20+ years in the Air Force, my brother-in-law currently serving in the Army, and of course my own husband. I won't say much more because I hate getting sentimental. Suffice to say I have great love and respect for our veterans, and I try to support them in my own way. And here is a delicious way you can support them too:

So Veteran's Day is coming up this Wednesday (11/11), and in honor of veterans Baskin-Robbins will donate 11 cents from every ice cream scoop sold on Veteran's Day to the USO* in honor of all service members, veterans and their families! Yay, that means me too! So scrap the sundaes and specialty drinks, and buy as many scoops as you can that day! My hubs is an ice cream savage and loves Baskin-Robbins, so you know I will be treating him (again) on Wednesday. He loves classics like this mint chocolate chip. What is your fav? Make sure to see if your store carries the camouflage waffle cones, waffle bowls and ice cream; sadly mine didn't, but from visiting Baskin-Robbins' FB page, the camouflage ice cream flavor seems quite popular.

*If you don't know about the USO, it's a huge organization that's been around for 75 years dedicated to strengthening our military by connecting them to family, home and country, and helping them through deployments and all the different phases of military life. It's a great organization, definitely worth your ice cream support :)

  11. Thank you for sharing some of yourself in this very personal post. We appreciate all of your family's efforts for making this country a better, safer place for us all. I, too, am from a military family unfortunately I am not close with them. So this is day is somewhat of a reminder of that. Why are there so many of those days in the year????? You look beautiful and that ice cream is definitely looking good enough to eat :)

    XOXO

  21. Wow, you really have the military in your veins:) Denmark is such a small nation and our army is tiny, so we don't have the same surrounding network and services for veterans, even though we are very proud of the few who go and serve our country:) Such a nice initiative from Baskin Robbins:)

  22. Thank you to your whole family who served to keep our country safe! So glad Baskin Robins decided to give back for every scoop. What a delicious way to say thanks. Xo, Ellese

  26. Yumm! Our nearest baskin robbins is 35 minutes away... and we usually end up at the one 45 min away so I can buy paper source envelopes... ha. Bummer we didn't have time to go yesterday, what a great thing they did! I LOVE nutty coconut. Sometimes the scoops have a few too many nuts for me... but I love the coconut ice cream. It's hard to find! :) KC opts for peanut butter chocolate! (PS I JUST BLOGGED ABOUT A BAND THAT'S PRETTY INDIE AND I LOVE THEM! - maybe your husband hasn't heard of them yet?!!?!) hehe Also, I loove your mani and your coat! Adorable. XO -Alexandra

  31. I love veterans day too! My family has a lot of military history as well and it is definitely wonderful to celebrate their sacrifice.

    Love these pictures! You always look so stunning. The second one is my favorite - you should have it framed!

    1. So awesome! And you are so sweet--that was actually my least favorite because of my hair >.< the hairdress made it too light and blunt, and I never edit my photos besides contrast, but in that photo I actually made the bottom of my hair look darker
