Fill in the blank Friday

1. One of my happiest moments ever

was holding Jack for the first time. An indescribable feeling, and a love I never knew existed!!

2. Summer is hot. And I'm not a fan of hot. So I wait, and try to be patient until fall arrives and I am happy once again!

3. This summer the weather has been more mild than hot. I'm sure as we get closer to August it will get up there again and spend the rest of the summer there. In Medford, it stays pretty hot through October.

4. My summer food of choice has been fruit. Grapes, melons, berries, apples....any kind of fruit!

5. My summer uniform has been the same thing I wear most days, yoga pants and a t-shirt I don't mind getting puke on. :)

6. If I could spend the entire summer in one location I would choose someplace cool. Wherever that may be.

7. My summer anthem is ..............drawing a blank here.

Link up with Lauren at the little things we do for you FITBF!!


  1. i feel you on just trying to wait out the heat! coming over from the link up :)

    {I'm hosting a giveaway & would love to see you there!}

  2. i didn't know where to leave this comment, but i wanted you to know that your old blog has greatly ministered to me.

    We have a beautiful little girl that is almost 4. When she was 2 we started seriously trying (had been half heartedly trying for 3 months) for #2 in Aug 2009 - got pg right away. Lost the baby in Sept. Tried for 18 more months..finally got pg again in Dec. 2010. Lost that pg too. It's been the longest and hardest time of my life.

    a blog i just started about this journey is have posted on there a couple of your posts becuase they have meant so much to me. this blog is sort of a mix between remembering my babies, a place to vent, a place to keep ppl informed so i don't have to keep having the same conversation, a place to visit when i am sad and a journal of this time. Maybe it will help someone down the road as yours has.

    Thanks again.

  3. I'm not a fan of the heat either, I hate it. Most of my days at home have been spent at home with the a/c turned down to 68 degrees.

    Fruit is my favorite thing to eat in the summer. It's so fresh.

    Stopping by from Lauren's blog :)

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
