Miscellany Monday

1) Nothing cuter than Superman playing cars. We did have a rough moment earlier in the day when he realized that even with his cape on, he couldn't fly.

2) My birthday is a month from today. Just sayin'

3) I have two giveaways going. One ends tonight and the other ends Wednesday!!

4) Babies are still sick, coughs keeping them up at night. I've done the nasal saline, Tylenol, booger sucker outer, humidifier, Vick's on the feet and chest etc etc...any other ideas???

5) We had a "pink party" with a bunch of my Mom's friends (there were 22 of us!!), just to celebrate life and her and remind everyone to do your self exams!! Doctor didn't catch it, mammogram didn't catch it, ultrasound didn't catch it until my Mom showed them where she was feeling the it's up to you!!

6) Did I mention we will be here next month? Oh...well, we will :)

Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa

7) I've used this program before when starting running again from scratch, and I had great results. So, I started today again! I'm excited :)

8) My sister and I are making Thanksgiving dinner for our family this year. First time ever. I've been searching Pinterest like crazy for fun ideas, I am so excited!!! Look for me there!

9) Something I am really thankful for is that our home is a home filled with joy. We have stress, we have really hard days, we have really bad days. We have tears, we have tantrums and time-outs (adults and children alike), we have long days, we are dealing with 3 busy boys, life in the ministry, cancer in the family, finances etc etc etc. But above all, we are thankful, we are joyful and our home is a haven. And I love that. I love that we have perspective and that we are thankful. When someone tells you they need to hang out at your house more often because it's the "fun house" and yet you have toys and dishes everywhere, and life is know you're doing something right.

Happy Monday!


  1. I really love this post. I've been looking through your blog. We have a lot in common. I have 3 boys (one is a Jack), my husband used to lead worship and now helps with sound at our church, pregnancy loss, and more. I'm your newest follower. : )

  2. Herbs for Kids makes a sugar free Eldertussin elderberry syrup that's good for a year and up (not sure how old your boys are). I've used it with sucess on the little ones who can't have the otc expectorant yet. Also, steamy up a room with a hot shower and a few drops eucalyptus oil can sometimes help. It's so hard when they are little and can't take anything!

  3. I love his distress over not being able to fly with his cape - so cute!

  4. OOh! I love your list!!!

    Pinterest sounds like a great idea for thanksgiving ideas... :) I am cooking for my family too this year.

    Your little man is so cute in his cape!!! My little boy got a super cape the other day and I love seeing him in it!


  5. oh goodness... disney sounds so fun!!!

    happy running to you.

    i hope your babies get better quickly. i'm so sorry!

  6. I love the idea of the pink party!!

    Hope everyone feels better quickly :(

    I am addicted to Pinterest! There are so many fun things on there and so many new things I want to try!


  7. we took the twins to disneyland for halloween (since we live so close, we couldn't pass up the chance) and they loved it! you know...for very small infants, they loved it haha

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
