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.

24 Hour Visit from TN Papa

My Dad, who Bradley calls TN Papa, came in for an overnight visit yesterday.  We went to the Greenville Zoo yesterday afternoon and Bradley was so excited to show TN Papa all his favorite animals. 
 
Bradley loves his elephants!
 
This big guy came as close to us as he possibly could.
 
"Look TN Papa!  The turtles are inside."
 
                                                    Shhh.  The jaguar is taking a nap.
 
 
Checking out the monkeys.
 
 It's inflatable Mickey Mouse!
 
We had eggs, bacon,  sausage and toast for breakfast this morning and Bradley loved eating with TN Papa.  Then it was story time and TN Papa used his imagination and came up with his own story and Bradley seemed to think it was great.
 

Then it was time for some pumpkin carving!  Dad did a great job carving the pumpkin into a TN Hillbilly Redneck with one tooth. 
 
Marking the pumpkin on where to cut
 
 Digging the insides out...yummy pumpkin seeds!
 
Bradley described raw pumpkin tasting as "nasty".
 
Bradley was very impressed with TN Papa's carving skills!
 
 The final result and who knows why Bradley wanted to stick the baseball bat in his eye.
 
Thanks Dad for making great memories in 24 hours!  Bradley loves his TN Papa and is ready for another wrestle match and another trip to the Zoo.
