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 hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Our Weekend Recap

Our family LOVES the Boston Red Sox so our weekend pretty much consisted of baseball and a little more baseball.   These late nights are beginning to catch up with me.  But in between the games, Mike ran his first 5K, we had a beautiful Saturday evening with dear friends, and spiritual refreshment on Sunday.

 All ready to begin his first 5K!

 Almost there baby!  
He almost beat my time of 32:09 and he hardly did any training.  
I'm so proud of him!!

 "Go Daddy Go!"

 Cheering is so much fun!

Cupcakes for dinner with friends on Saturday night.

I love my Chicago Metallic Uptake Bake and Serve Cupcake Set.  Right now it's on clearance at Bed Bath and Beyond for only $19.99.   It's so convenient for carrying cupcakes to a party and I love the pop up feature when you are ready to serve the cupcakes!

Now it's time to gear up for a full week ahead.  I'm hoping these next 5 days go by quickly because I'm extremely excited about this coming weekend!!  I can't wait to tell you all about it next Monday. 


  1. It is always great seeing you friend! Those cupcakes were amazing....and yes I was completely fascinated by your pan! :) Need to get together again soon.

  2. Way to Go MIKE on your first 5k!!! That's AWESOME!!!
