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

I feel like it's been months since I've posted one of our weekend recaps.  I think we have finally adjusted with our schedule that changed when I went back to work.  We are in a routine now and when we stick with it, things go smoothly.  There were no official plans on the calendar this weekend which is rare but nice.

Friday night began with family movie night watching The Secret Life of Pets.  Mike and Bradley loved it while Savannah and I were bored with it.


We slept in on Saturday morning and then I made a homemade buttermilk pancakes and sausage for breakfast.  It was a very relaxed morning while we all did our own thing whether it was watching tv, reading books, or playing with toys.  I even took a short cat nap!  I made a big pot of chili in the afternoon and we played several games of Golf (the card game) while Savannah took her afternoon nap.  We went to the Saturday night service at church and then a quick stop at the grocery store on the way home.  Mike and I ended the night with a movie once the kids were in bed.  Two movies in one weekend is a very rare thing for us!




On Sunday morning we woke up to about 2 inches of snow and very, very cold temperatures.  Mike made omelets for breakfast and then we were out of the house by 9 am.  We had several errands to run first and then we picked up some coffee and donuts and headed to go sledding at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth.  It was a gorgeous morning with full sunshine despite the temperature only being 12 degrees.  This was our official first sledding experience in Maine!  It was a blast and Bradley and I didn't want to leave.  We stopped at the hair salon on the way home and both Bradley and Mike got haircuts.  Then it was an afternoon of shoveling the driveway, picking up fallen limbs outside, and inside household chores.  Baths for the kids, packing bags and lunches for school and daycare, and menu planning ended our fantastic weekend!
