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.

Thanksgiving 2016


Today was one of the happiest Thanksgiving's I've ever had.  We slept in (6:30 am is sleeping in for us) and had a leisurely breakfast.  We played Bingo while watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade which was so much fun.  Mike and I took turns running on the treadmill so we could justify all the food we were getting ready to consume for lunch.  And then we did something I thought we would never do.  We went to Cracker Barrel for our Thanksgiving lunch!  And you know what...it was the best thing ever!  We waited for about 45 minutes which wasn't the easiest with hungry kids but our waitress was fantastic and got us our food as quickly as possible while keeping our drinks full.  After lunch, we headed to the movie theater in Falmouth to watch Trolls.  It was our first time to that theater so we were super excited to see leather recliners!  It was the best thing ever!!  We were so cozy and comfortable and the movie was really, really cute.  It was Savannah's first movie and we weren't sure how she would do, but she stayed awake for almost all of it and was really into watching it.  On the way home, we stopped at Cumberland Farms for our free coffees.  When we got home we played Monopoly in which Bradley beat both Mike and me big time!  And an evening of relaxation ended our Thanksgiving Day.  I'm so thankful for my family.  I'm so thankful for our home.  I'm so thankful God brought us to Maine. 
 I'm so thankful for simplicity. 

A very quick game of Checkers since it was freezing outside.

Bradley was super excited to see it start to snow!

 Savannah's first taste of lemon!

Waiting so sweetly for her first Thanksgiving meal!

My favorite little boy!

Movie time in super comfortable leather recliners!

Full bellies and a comfortable recliner makes for a perfect nap!

And he's the winner!
