Miscellany...Wordless........Thursday! :D

Okay, so by the title of my post you can guess I'm combining everything I've missed this week...into one post! Well, for the most part anyway!

So, I'm gonna break down my week......just because!

Monday: Slight scare in the evening involving the twins. Led to a night of fervent prayer by lots of family and friends. Also was my MIL's that kinda got ruined.

Tuesday: Stayed in bed all day with my feet up while my hubby worked and the most amazing Mom in the world took care of Jack all day! Had an ultrasound at 5:00pm....both babies are fine! What a sigh of relief...and tears were shed once again.

Wednesday: Got some maternity clothes at the mall....8 1/2 weeks with twins....let's just say, wow. dear friend had her baby boy! Benjamin was born at 8:32am weighing 7lbs 2oz and 21inches long! And that's for being about 4 weeks early! After a slight blood sugar and feeding setback, he went home with Mommy and Daddy today, to join big brother Christopher (2 years)! No NICU for him, PTL!

Thursday: That would be today! Totally exhausted from not sleeping (can't seem to without a Unisom, and I waited to long last night!) And trying to take it easy per doctor's orders...while trying to keep my almost 2 year old happy. ASL class tonight, class far so good! Such an eclectic group...I decided to sit by the person I would LEAST likely EVER hang around in real life. It's been good for me!

Tomorrow brings haircuts, naps and family coming in from out of town! I've enjoyed staying up on your blogs, but between being exhausted and puking and spending any good time I have with my boys....blogging isn't on the top of my list right now :)

Oh! And when I showed Jack the ultrasound pictures, I said..."Look! Babies!" and he said..."No...doggies."
                                                                             Oh boy

Enjoy these pictures from our day trip to the Oregon Coast last Saturday!

Zoi, my niece who just turned 1!

Jack got attacked by a wave and then spent the rest of the day yelling at them :) Love his dimple!

Sis-in-Law with Miles

I felt GREAT that day...even wanted pizza! Which says a lot since the road to the coast isn't exactly an easy one to handle...even without being pregnant!


  1. Still can't get over the fact that your're having twins! So exciting, and I imagine it is going to be an adventure trying to find maternity clothes so glad the babies are ok!

  2. Thanks for the updations! You are the cutest.

  3. So glad you are doing better! Praying for your sweet ones to arrive safely.

  4. OMgoodness, so much to catch up on...I've been gone! SOoo glad your scare was only a scare and I just had to laugh out loud about your son's ultrasound comment, oh you are in for some doozies with that one when the twins come!! Glad you are feeling better! Love all the pix, such fun!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
