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

It was the weekend before school started so we decided to have a nice relaxing family weekend.  We started Saturday morning off with hiking to Jewel Falls in Portland.  It was a new trail and we were excited to see a waterfall.  Unfortunately we haven't had a lot of rain  in the last couple of months so the waterfall was more like a little trickle.  Our plans to pick up deli sandwiches for lunch changed when our deli store closed early.  Backup plans became pizza from Amatos and we took it to the waterfront to watch the boats while we ate.  A quick afternoon nap and then we headed to church on Saturday night.  






On Sunday, I went back to church to help pack some boxes for Project Blessings, a really cool ministry the church has to help the homeless get back on their feet.  We hit the beach once I got back home and we relaxed on the beach all afternoon.  The weather was beautiful! Sunday night consisted of early bedtimes and getting on a schedule for school.
