Sickies

Well, we made it to January without really getting sick, which I think is pretty darn good. I think the fact that Jack stays home with me protects him from all sorts of nasty germs. BUT...we've finally been hit. Jack has a yucky cold and I can tell I'm fighting one.

So thankful for humidifiers and Boogie Wipes. Have you heard of Boogie Wipes? They are pretty much amazing and make wiping Jack's nose much less of a battle!

My OB told me to up my Vitamin C and take Zinc lozenges, so I'm trying my best to fend this thing off!

Although, if we have to get sick, now is the time to do it before the babies arrive! I'm glad they will be arriving in February and we won't have to endure much winter before spring and warmer weather hit...not smack dab in the middle of yuck season!


This morning my energetic 2 1/2 year old just laid on me while watching Curious George. I have to admit I loved it so very much. Sad because he's sick yes....but him resting on me was just wonderful and I thanked God that we had that moment because soon life will drastically change for him. And I am treasuring each little bit with him and soaking it all in.

On a SUPER exciting note.....this just came today!!!




The Ergo Carrier and infant insert! We eventually want to get another one, but this was a MUST for sure!
I've done lots of research on baby carriers and this is the top of the line and the very best for baby's development and for the parent's back and such. PLUS unlike the Moby, which is also great, this one carries up to 45lbs and basically can be a backpack. So no need to buy another carrier once your baby weighs too much for the other one!! YIPPEE!!!

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

Excited about Chemo, Preaching and Pumpkins.

As the days draw closer to my next round I find myself almost excited?!?!  Is that just the weirdest thing? I know what to expect now when I go, I have the BEST support system and I know it means one more round down and one more day closer to being done with all of this. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my week break in between, but I don’t feel anxious going in. I feel hope. Something I thought was going to be allusive this entire process.  ( PS: I reserve the right to change my mind about this at any point along the way!!) Tomorrow brings a blood draw, appointment with my oncologist (okay that always makes me nervous- I like the PA better) and then another Pre-Chemo Movie Night with friends and family. If Cinemark stops this before I’m done with chemo I’m going to have an issue!!! Oh and I get my hair cut!! You know, even if I mostly only go to doctors appointments you gotta keep the hairs lookin good. Tonight I got to teach/preach for the first time since March. I had a lot of anxiety go
