Weekend Getaway

Glad to be home after an awesome & much needed weekend away! We tricked the boys & told them we were going to visit some family for the weekend but in reality....we had booked a hotel & surprised them by showing up to Bush Gardens!! We haven't had a vacation in ages, so it was great to get away. The hotel we stayed at was really nice & they even served a breakfast buffet that the boys definitely took advantage of. I kept telling my husband that people were going to think we didn't feed our kids cause they eat like grown men. lol The park was absolutely packed & the weather was perfect. Hubby took Evan on his first roller coaster ride & I couldn't bear to look because I thought he was too small to ride. I was surprised that he liked it and asked to get back on. The park also had a lot of animals we got to see up close (my favorite part). Anyways, despite all of the fun....I am so happy to be back because "there's no place like home".

Free Samples & Great Buys!!

I've been so happy with all of the great samples I've been getting lately. Most of them bring great coupons too, so that is a plus! Today I got 2 bags of Starburst Jellybeans at Target (the best jellybeans ever....I am so addicted) lol! They were 2 for $4 but I had a coupon for a dollar off so it came out to just 3 bucks! They also had the MegaMind movie for $13 off, so I bought it to put in Evan's Easter basket. Oh, and they were giving out a free recyclable Target bag with every purchase =)

"Blessed is the mother;

Who can hold onto her children while letting them go;

Who puts a tranquil home ahead of an immaculate house;

Who knows a kind act will be remembered longer than an easy word;

Who really believes that prayer changes things;

Whose faith in the future sweetens the present;

Whose Bible never needs dusting;

Whose sense of humor is alive and well

Blessed Are The Parents

Blessed are the parents who refuse to compare their children with others.

Blessed are the Fathers and Mothers who have learned to Laugh, for it is the music of the child's world.

Blessed are those parents who accept the awkwardness of their growing children, letting each child grow at their own speed.

Blessed are the parents who can say " No " without anger.

Blessed are the parents who take their children to church, for it gladdens their hearts.

Blessed are the parents who are teachable, for understanding brings love.

Blessed are the parents who love their children in the midst of a hostile world, for love is the greatest gift of all"
