About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Our huge blessing this week

We had a really awesome blessing this week.  I can't necessarily say we prayed for it but it was something that was on our minds a lot recently and I had been looking on Craig's list to find these items to purchase.  

When Mike has coffee clubs at his office, he has to either rent or borrow chairs so there will be adequate seating for his clients.  Renting chairs can add up quickly and having to constantly borrow can be a hassle especially when you have to pick them up and drop them back off.  Earlier this week he received a call saying there was a company that was refurbishing their office.  They had 9 office chairs that Mike could have if he was willing to pick them up.  We stopped by this company's office yesterday afternoon and not only did they have 9 beautiful well-padded office chairs for Mike, they had a solid wood office desk he could also have!  That was like icing on top of the cake!  We ended up renting a U-haul truck since our little car definitely wouldn't be able to fit these items in it.  It cost us $40 for rental, gas, and mileage on the U-haul but was a blessing to be given such nice office furniture.  

It was a great reminder to us that not only does God provide for our needs, He can surprise us with our wants too!  Take a minute today to remind yourself and thank God for how He has blessed you and your family.

  1. AWESOME!!! Now that is what I would call a big "purple" flower blessing!!!! =) It will be nice having them on hand for his events; also not having to coordinate pick up and rental will save time and cash. So excited for you guys!
