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

Wow!  I can't believe it's already Monday.  I'm very tired and ready to just crawl back into bed.  We had a pretty busy weekend and a full week ahead!
On Friday, we had 5 year old "J" come to live with us.  Bradley is very excited to have a big brother and the house has been full of lots of noise.  On Friday night, I went through Judgement House Masquerade with some friends at my church.  Then it was early bedtime since the Red Sox weren't playing on Friday night. 
On Saturday, we took a drive up to the mountains to Caeasars Head and Table Rock.  We stopped at the Pumpkintown Mountain Opry Restaurant for lunch.  Their turkey subs are delicious!  And J was quite impressed with their peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 
Saturday afternoon and evening were full of disappointments with the TN losing to AL and the Red Sox losing to the Cardinals.  I went to bed very tired and very sad.
I made pumpkin waffles (recipe to come) for breakfast on Sunday and we went to church.  I caught up on some sleep Sunday afternoon and then we took the boys to a church up the road for Trunk or Treat.  J was Spiderman and Bradley was Mickey Mouse.  They are loaded up on candy and it's just the beginning of Halloween week!  Another baseball game on Sunday night but with a much better ending!  Go Red Sox!
Here's the pictures from the weekend:

Perfect Fall weather for playing in the backyard!

I love the beautiful Fall colors!

Gorgeous drive in the mountains.

In the beginning God created the world...what an amazing Creator!

Caesars Head

It was 38 degrees on Saturday morning!
Spiderman and Mickey Mouse

He is serious about filling his bucket up with candy!

Suckers are his favorite!
