Growing up we had a Mrs. Fields in our city and it was always a treat to be able to go and pick out a few cookies. Yum! I recently found out that they are big supporters of the USO. As a Military spouse this makes me really happy. The USO or the United Service Organizations, Inc. supports Military families in a lot of different ways. From special programs to locations at most of the Airports and Military installations in the US. Our own family has benefited from them many times over the years. They are there to serve the Military and their families, “Until everyone comes home.”
Mrs. Fields is working with the USOs “Every Moment Counts” campaign which will help all families make the most of every moment together whether they are a Military family or not. It is so important to have family time where you can bond and make memories together. Mrs. Fields is encouraging families everywhere to dedicate Sunday nights as cookie moments to share quality time with your family. You can find some ideas and tools at the Mrs. Fields Moments website.

For my own family, we like to spend time together during the weekends. Our weeks seem so busy. The kids get home from school, homework, dinner and all that. It is nice to spend that time together on the weekends. Sometimes it is something simple like taking a trip to a park, other times we might look for a local event or even go to Nashville. It is nice when we can do something fun together every weekend even if it is just something simple and low-key. During the week we also have family dinners together which is nice.
How does your family like to spend quality time together?
