It's just a bunch of Miscellany....

It's been awhile since I've done one of these! Link up with Carissa and do your own miscellany!

* Happy New Year!
My sweetie and I went up to Callahan's for two nights. It's a lodge about 45 minutes away, but it's tucked up nice in the mountains and it was COVERED with snow :) This was our first time leaving Jack for 2 nights. I had a hard time that first afternoon/evening...I cried. It's always good for a break and to getaway, but I am NOT a Mom who can just say "see ya!" But it was so good for Trev and I to get away one last time before the twins are born. Having one FULL day from sunrise to sunset of no responsibilities to a little one really did make us feel rested!

* My previous post showed you some pics of the twins' room. Feeling so good about it! The planner in me wishes the other crib was in there and all put together, but since we don't NEED it right away, it's okay that it's not ready. I just love their room. I cannot believe they will be here next month!

* Sleep. I miss good sleep. Since I've had one baby before I can say this....losing sleep over a newborn is WAY different than losing sleep because of heartburn, restless legs, leg cramping, backache, hips hurting and flipping over throughout the night feeling like a piece of bacon, and the potty breaks every hour. Ugh.

* I've been having fun playing with my new GPS Navigator and Camera :) I'm not a big gadget person, but these things are fun! I'm so glad we got the new camera before the boys arrived!

* I am constantly wondering how much bigger I will it possible for this skin of mine to continue to stretch and will my belly button just split open?

Super Jack!


  1. FUnny, the whole belly button thing! I made it to 33 weeks with the first twins, and 36 weeks with the second set. BY week 33 with set #2, I felt like my ribcage was going to completely split at the sternum. Hang in there and be ever so thankful our skin is so elastic!! I hope you find a *somewhat* comfortable sleep least for a bit!

  2. I remember feeling that way about my belly with Desmond...I thought if I got any bigger my skin would split! but that was with just one! I cant imagine twins...and btw, I have a pretty good chance of having twins grandma was one and my sister has them so who knows! Just a little random fact for you lol.

    SO jealous of Callahan's! I really want to get up there soon. It looks so gorgeous! I cant believe your boys will be here NEXT month! AH! crazy awesome!

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
