postheadericon Memorial Day Weekend 2017 Events

Memorial Day Weekend 2017 is upon us. If you don’t have plans already, it is not too late. There are many events taking place all over the country to commemorate the day and honor those brave men and women who died in service to America.

It is a good time to take the opportunity to teach your family and loved ones why America celebrates Memorial Day.

Memorial Day Weekend 2017

The US Department of Veterans Affairs in collaboration with the National Cemetery Administration are hosting events at VA national cemeteries throughout the country. Local communities will put their own special touches on the events and honor local heroes. You can find the VA sponsored event closest to you by checking their website.

Sponsored by the World War II Veterans Committee, the National Memorial Day Parade will take place in Washington, D.C. It begins at 2pm at the intersection of Constitution and NW 7th and ends up at 17th Street after parading down Constitution Avenue and the White House. It will be televised and streamed live online. More events in the D.C. area can be found here.

Be sure to check for events in your local area. Your American Legion post can usually advise you of celebrations near you.

Please have a safe weekend and don’t forget to honor our heroes and those brave people who died for our country, our flag, and your freedom.

postheadericon Leisurely Day with No Labor

I hope everyone enjoyed this Labor Day weekend. We had a busy Saturday and Sunday, but today was all about the relaxation.

 

Mr. MoonCat and I both belong to a fantasy football league. I’ve been a team owner since 2005 and this will be the hubby’s third year. The league is mostly made up of some of my dearest friends from kindergarten to now! We’ve always stayed close and connected and look forward to our annual draft party on Labor Day weekend and the Super Bowl party in the winter. It’s a fun and very competitive way to keep our lifelong relationships strong.

The party is usually a weekend long event with a “pre-party” on Friday night, a golf tournament on Saturday and the actual draft/party on Sunday. It is always an extremely fun weekend, but the older I get, the more tired I am come Monday.

 

I love these guys, but it’s probably a good thing we DO only plan these things twice a year!

So today, I rested! I spent a large part of my day reading and catching up on my pile of “To Be Read” books. I’m still doing reviews over at One Book Shy of a Full Shelf as well as doing some sensible saving at Centsable Couponing. I’m busy, but it’s stuff I love.
How was your weekend?
