Miscellany Monday

1) I've hosted two giveaways this past week, and I have another tomorrow....and two more coming!! Be looking out for those!

2) We did the pumpkin patch thing this past weekend. Same pumpkin patch....more kiddos. Next year is gonna be a blast!

I just love this shot.

He was so cute...trying to find a pumpkin. Most in the field were "too big" so we settled for a baking pumpkin he found in the store. Just his size :)

Same patch

Elmer Fudd...doesn't he look thrilled?!

 5) I'm down almost 18lbs. And guess what, when my WW subscription needed to be renewed, I went ahead and looked at some settings. Guess what. Somehow it got set to MAINTAIN CURRENT WEIGHT!!! What the heck?!?! I was none to pleased. Basically, it's a miracle I've even lost any! So...I reset that and now hope to see even better results :)

6) Did I mention Christian was on the move? Yeah...and pulling himself up onto things annnnndddd...then letting go. Oh boy.

7) I got to go to church yesterday. And my WHOLE family was there. It was wonderful. My Mom looks ridiculously cute in her hats. Speaking of for a post later this week about these awesome hats and find out where you can get one or two!!

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 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
