Operation Shower: Sunshine Farms

>> Monday, January 31, 2011

a view of the Military Appreciation tent on the 14th green

I know I do go on and on about Operation Shower, but I just can't help myself. I have a total weak spot for anything "baby", and when you top it off with our service men and women? I do whatever I can to be supportive. So when Amy from Stem Parties/Operation Shower offered to buy me dinner and cut my meat if I would come and help set up their most most recent event, you better believe I jumped, high.

The venue for this shower was the Torrey Pines Golf Course in beautiful San Diego during their Farmer's Insurance Open PGA Tour. Did I mention how beautiful it was? It really struck me especially because I had just returned from a fabulous but cold and wet trip to New York.

Anyway, I'm going to stop talking, and just show pictures.

ADORABLE! Just add veggies

and the sun sets on our day of set-up

Thirty six Military moms-to-be got the dream shower they deserved, but there are so many more! Please visit Operation Shower's website or facebook page and learn how you can get involved.

This was an absolutely gorgeous event and all of the vendors did such an amazing job.

My soldier, SGT Garner is the photo at the bottom. He was so grateful and appreciative for all that he received for his son Jack.

Organizations like Operation Shower truly do support our military families.

Thanks so much for your hard work.

@FaithVera - you gave me goosebumps! Thank you for putting a name to this soldier, and his beautiful son. It is SGT Garner, and his family, that deserves our heartfelt gratitude for his selflessness in serving for our country. God bless him :)

Abigail, I didn't know you had read SGT Garner's story. I try to bring awareness to the general public about our soldiers sacrifices and that of their families. He will tell you, "I'm just doing my job." He's truly a wonderful soldier with a great heart.

Wasn't it a fantastic experience Abigail! I'm jealous you got to hang out with Amy and meet the other party rock stars!

@Chris... amazing! Hopefully one of these days you and I will get to hang out?!
