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

What a great weekend we had!  We did a LOT but we were also pretty relaxed all weekend long.  Lots of sunshine and warmer temps made us all very happy.

On Saturday we packed a picnic lunch and headed to Mt. Washington in New Hampshire.  It was an amazing experience and I can't wait to go again!

The perfect picnic spot looking across to Mt. Washington.

The drive there was gorgeous.

We chose the guided tour this time since Mike was nervous to drive up the mountain and with my crazy mountain driving habits, I wasn't even given a chance.  :)

The bottom of the mountain getting ready to head up.

About 4 miles from the top of them mountain.  It was so cool to see the various trees driving up.  There are white and yellow birches on the bottom of the mountain, pine and fir trees in the middle, and super tiny trees on top that can't grow due to the weather.

We made it...almost to the top!  Due to the 70 mph winds at the peak, they had the last 2 miles of the road closed.  Mt. Washington has recorded some of the highest mph winds.

Absolutely breathtaking!  If it wasn't for the wind gusts, I could have stayed up there all day.


After church on Sunday, we went to a BBQ and birthday party.  Then we came home and did some yard work.  This is the first year that I haven't suffered any allergies but Mike has had it pretty rough.  The mask seemed to help a lot this time doing yard work.

Brad thought the masks were really cool!


We started Monday morning off with a local town parade.  It was so much fun! 

Bradley loved watching the parade!





 


 


 After the parade, we headed to Bug Light park and watched the boats for awhile.  


One of Bradley's favorite games right now is tag.
 
Of course, we couldn't end the day without grilling out and playing a couple games of croquet!
