Harry Connick Jr.

Harry Connick Jr. He's amazing, he's incredibly talented, he's a legend. We saw him last night, live at our local Britt Amphitheater.
We have always been fans of Jazz, and we have always loved Harry. We were watching the American Idol last season when he was the guest mentor and said to each other, "Now that is a concert I'd want to see." The very next day I saw he was going to be in town! We called for tickets immediately....and I'm glad we did. It sold out that day.

So, we have this awesome place in Southern Oregon called The Britt Festival. It's an outdoor amphitheatre on a hill in Jacksonville overlooking the gorgeous valley. It's quite a treasure here for us. You can pay big bucks for seats up front, or reserved lawn seats or you can do what most people do and that is wait in a really long line and as soon as the gates open, run in and grab the best seat you can. It's blankets only (or seats that sit flat on the ground) and you can bring food and drink in as well! So, we got there about 15 minutes before the gates opened at 5:45pm and got the best seats we could. The show started at 8:00pm and it happened to be a full moon.

So here we are, overlooking the vineyards and the rolling hills of Southern Oregon, watching Harry Connick Jr sing some of our favorite songs, snuggled up under blankets. It was great!
He had tore his Achilles earlier in the day, so he was in a boot with crutches. Because of that he didn't dance around a whole lot and the show was shorter than normal, but it was still amazing. We decided that if he came back, we'd pay for those front row seats. He's incredibly interactive and funny and you miss out on a lot of that if you're up in the hill area :)

But it was amazing, and it wasn't just him and the piano. It was his full orchestra with him too, and some amazing New Orleans legends! They don't allow you to take pictures or video, so I don't have any. But I will post some from the web to give you an idea of what this place was like. I am so glad we got to go. Our prayer team got together and bought us the tickets, it was around the due date of the baby we lost, so it was a gift from them. They are amazing people.
I sure hope he comes back!!

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
