November November

Tis my favorite month of the year!
And this year is more special than most!

Why may you ask?

Wait, before that....Halloween cuteness:

Captain America and my lil Firefighter
Christian, Camden

Okay, back to why this month is so awesome.
It started yesterday with Jack's first field trip and to the Pumpkin Patch no less!
Thanks to my parents for watching the little men, Trev and I both got to go.

It was so dang cold, Jack was in tears by the end of it...his hands were like ice.
And the farmer's were great and you can tell they get a ton of school field trips out there.
But these kids are 3 years have to move quick, keep it interesting and don't talk about the Civil War for 3 minutes or stop the totally cool hayride, to get off and show how an old washing machine works which takes approx 2.5 minutes and you've already lost their attention span.

Just fyi

But...I did snag some cute pics

First bus ride.
Totally not impressed with me snapping pictures already.....
Corn maze

Hayride. Cold....antsy to get moving.

He first found a small (very small) green smushy pumpkin....I made him put that back
Trying to get a "class picture" yeah...that was funny.

Then, Tuesday night,  my soon (soon as in 37 days away) to be brother-in-law's Birthday!
And my sister did a "Milk and Cookies" theme, it was so fun.

This weekend have our Annual Church Christmas Bazaar

Its one of the top bazaar's in the valley, it's amazing!
Usually my Mom and her best friend run the bake sale and I work with them.
But with my Mom's health this year, they stepped back from that and are just manning their booth of knitted goods as vendors, so I will help with that!

Then we are having family pictures with the lovely Lacie at

 (newly changed name) Lacie Lauree Photography 

and I am so excited, I cannot stand it. The babies are at a great age for this and I've been scouring Pinterest for fun ideas.

My Birthday is the 17th, and I will be....

I love Birthdays. We celebrate them by the week month here.

Next comes Jack's Thanksgiving program at school :) Too much cuteness.

And then it's Thanksgiving, and my sister and I are undertaking the task this year for the first time and we are so excited!!
I've been collecting recipes and tutorials and I am ready!
Then shopping, can't forget shopping...even if we don't buy a thing we still go out.
And then....we pack and leave for

It's only been in the works for like 3 years.
So so so so so so so excited.

And there is the leaves turning, the pumpkin spice lattes, the pumpkin bread and apple cider
The crisp mornings, the gorgeous sunsets, sweaters and scarves and hats and boots oh my

It is my favorite month ever.
Except for the sickness. We are still wiping snot around here......

Happy November!!!!!

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
