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

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
