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 hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Our Weekend Recap

I really don't want this weekend to end.  We have gotten so much accomplished along with having loads of fun that I truly don't want Monday to come.

I finished most all the laundry on Saturday which is a huge success in itself.  All of our paperwork for taxes is in order so as soon as we receive one more W-2 we can file our taxes.  We, well actually I, binged watched several episodes of Gilmore Girls.  My co-worker got me hooked on the series so I blame her for all the time consumed trying to catch up on the episodes.  Bradley and I made a trip to the library where the roles are now reversed and he's picking out books to read to me.  It's so exciting to see him in this new stage of life.  We went to church on Saturday night and had just a beautiful night of worship.

We woke up on Sunday morning itching to go on a road trip.  After a couple of searches on google, I found a lighthouse that we've never been to that was less than 2 hours away.  I made a quick breakfast of egg & bacon biscuits and we were on the road by 9:30 am.  Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is located in Bristol and it is a really quaint lighthouse with gorgeous ocean views.  If it had been just a little warmer (it was 38 degrees), we would have stayed all morning.  We then headed to Fort William Henry but stopped at The Cupboard Cafe on the way.  We almost drove right by this cafe and Mike was pretty skeptical about eating there.  But I'm so glad I went with my instincts and insisted we eat there because it was phenomenal!  And the owner was just an angel.  Truly one of our best experiences we've ever had eating out.  Fort William Henry was a lot of fun to visit with more beautiful views.  I'm going to sound really strange saying this but one of my favorite things about this place was the graveyard.  It was so beautiful right on the edge of the ocean.  Graves that were so old and full of so many brave people.  We came home and Mike made homemade pizza for supper while I worked on my menu and grocery list.  I'm loving the new online ordering for Hannafords and I can pick up my groceries right after work tomorrow!  Our weekend ends with watching the Patriots/Steelers game.  Go Patriots!
