Happy Miscellany Monday!

My Monday did not start out with my most favorite thing.....a dentist appointment. I loathe the dentist. I have a really nice dentist. It doesnt' matter. I hate the smells, the sounds, people's hands in my mouth, that gritty stuff. Watching TV doesn't help, I just hate it. But now it's over for another 6 months :)

18 Weeks today :) We find out what they are 2 weeks from tomorrow, or 15 days :) I am surprised I haven't figured out minutes and seconds....yet :)

17 Weeks This picture CRACKS me up! (ignore the nasty mirror please) I love Jack's face!!

It's Fall....I love fall! We took Jack to his first football game at my Alma mater. He did well! We made it to half-time! He was enamored with the loud speaker and the pep band!

We took Jack to the Fire House this weekend! They had an open house with demonstrations, firefighters and fire trucks everywhere! Jack was in heaven! He's seen them from the road, in the car, and he has a toy truck. BUT he had never been up close. He was so overwhelmed, he just ran from fire truck to fire truck saying, "it's a firetruck!" over and over :) He loved it. Plus he got a free hot dog. It was really cool.

We leave on Saturday for the big Marathon! My crazy husband and his crazy friend (our Youth Pastor) are running their first ever Marathon this Sunday 10-10-10 at 7:00am (West Coast Time) We leave on Saturday to head up there and get checked in and get the boys full on pasta! I'm super excited for them! There will be 10,000 runners! The biggest Marathon Portland has had yet! And the coolest thing is YOU can cheer him on from home! You can track him on your computer!!
Go to this site and on race day there will be a place to plug in his bib number which is 1341 He will have a chip in his shoe and at certain chip check-points, it will scan and update him online! So say a prayer for him and his buddy and root root root! :) :)

After the Marathon and some good eats with friends....we are staying up in the Portland area to hang with family and check out the ZOO and some other fun places! This is our LAST getaway before the babies come! So we're going to enjoy every moment with Jack and make some awesome memories!!

Have a great week and be sure to link up with Carissa @lowercase letters for your Miscellany Monday!

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
