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 Weekend Recap

This was our first Easter weekend not being with extended family so it was a little different.  And I'm not used to having cold weather on Easter...I really missed wearing sleeveless tops and flip flops.

  Mike had Friday off which was nice to have an extra day with him.  We did a LOT of stuff in our three day weekend!  Mike had breakfast with a friend, Bradley's passport is officially applied for, I had a massage, we hit the beaches twice geocaching, the family room is finally painted and furniture rearranged, we attended Good Friday service and Sunday morning Easter service, family egg hunt inside, kite flying, and relaxing on the beach in our new Tommy Bahama beach chairs!  

The Tommy Bahama chairs is a really cool story...I had mentioned to my siblings last weekend how we needed some beach chairs. I really liked the Tommy Bahama chairs but they are completely out of our budget.  On Monday morning, I received an email from Purex Insiders saying that my YouTube video featuring Bradley and Purex won $100 Amazon gift card!  I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was.  My first instinct was to stock up on some paper products and food to keep our grocery bill down next week.  But then I remembered the beach chairs and how nice they would be to have, so beach chairs is what we bought with the unexpected gift card!  What a great reminder of how awesome God is to provide for our wants unexpectedly!









No more ugly green paint in the family room!   And Bradley did an awesome job painting with his little brush!




The Easter bunny came to our house!  The best part was watching Bradley's expressions!




Sunday afternoon was my favorite!  Church, inside Easter egg hunt and kite flying made the perfect day with my family.
