1. It's sunny. Yes. My sweets and I are taking Jack out for a little "brunch" date, just the 3 of us. Thanks Mom. The little dude has been having a rough go lately....I think he finally realized his new brother's weren't going anywhere.

2. I am dying to get back in shape. Like pre-JACK shape. I want to work out so hard I hurt. I miss those days. I know it's going to be slow going, my abdomen is STILL tender :/ I got a couple sweet workout DVD's coming in the mail and I am determined to do this. It will be a slow process and not a "see results quickly" thing since I'm feeding two babies, and that will be hard for someone like me who wants instant results. But better for my milk supply. I have my sister's wedding to look good for! 6 1/2 months should give me time :)

3. I wish I didn't love carbs so much.

4. My BEST FRIEND is coming soon for an extended visit before heading off on her BIG mission trip! I cannot wait to spend several hours in the coffee shop, laughing and talking and drinking coffee and being silly and stupid. I love her.

5. At Christmas Jack got quite a bit of stuff from the family. We opened most of it up and let him have it right away. But we hid several things, knowing that kiddos get bored with their things and instead of buying new stuff, last night we hid a bunch of the stuff he hasn't been playing with and busted out the "new" toys for him. He woke up and they were in the living room...and then we told him they were from Camden and Christian :)
He's pretty excited.

6. We're kind of dorks, and we have a healthy obsession with Disneyland. And the NEW Star Tours ride is opening in Disneyworld tomorrow and in Disneyland on June 4th. We've been watching all the behind the scenes footage. We are pretty stoked. It looks like Jack will make the cut-off for most rides by the time we go in November! I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Thursday. It's my favorite day because tomorrow is my hubby's one full day off, so it's always exciting to realize once he is off, we have some time together! I adore him. :)


  1. i love your final comment: "i adore him." =) *smile*. love it!

    enjoy brunch on this sunny day!

  2. i promise i understand wanting to get into pre-baby shape!! FWIW, with wanting to not diminish my milk supply, no matter what exercise i did i held onto 10 extra pounds until i weaned them at 15 mos. once i weaned, though, it melted off with a few extra :). well worth it!!

  3. I so understand wanting to get back into shape, and it is hard! My worst thing is waiting-for results lol. My sister is getting married in like 8 weeks : ) I will be in her wedding, big fat and pregnant. Enjoyed your update!

  4. I agree I wish I didn't love the carbs! hehe :) and hey lets get back in shape together!

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
