Miscellany Monday

http://www.carissagraham.com/2012/01/miscellany-monday_23.html



1. So, notice anything different? Yep....new look to the blog. Wanted something clean and fresh. Going to have a button designed soon and possibly a new header. 
Have you checked out these two designers?

What do you think of the blog now?


2. Going to start a series of guest posts, if you are interested, read here and contact me!

3. I finally got out on a short run today and I'm determined to get out 2 more times this week. No matter what. 



4. So, a fellow twin mama blogger that I love to follow has an Etsy shop and she just started making bow-ties for little men!! 
Guess who pre-ordered two?! Ohmygoodness they are adorable.
Go check out those and her other things here!




5. We saw Beauty and the Beast with Jack last night in 3D. 
One of my all time favorites and it was so awesome to take Jack. My parents stayed with the babies and we took him to Red Robin (his favorite place because of the tractor game you can play to get candy) and then headed to the movie. 
He did great. Didn't leave his glasses on the whole time, but since mostly it's just the background that's 3D (in most parts) it really was fine. 
So, if you were wondering if you should take your little one because of that....it's fine. They won't get a headache and will see fine without the glasses :)


6. Both boys got haircuts this past week, it was Christian's second one. They did great but it still didn't convince Jack to let us cut his. 
HUGE battle, and basically the ONLY battle we have with him.
We resort to buzzing it off at home while he screams bloody murder. But I miss his spikey hair so we are trying to grow it out. 
Ugh....any tips?!
He hates the noise and the itchiness. It seriously makes him all red and blotchy.


7. Went out with our local twin mama group last week, it was so nice. Love being able to talk to other mama's who just get it. 


8. One more shout out....this twin mama had her babies at 27 weeks and is now giving back to March of Dimes. Go here and see what's she's doing (it involves awesome giveaways!)
Happy Monday. It continues to rain here, but it was badly needed!






Happy Monday!

  2. hannah is always my design girl! plus she's a sweetie, too!!!

    hunter doesn't do well with haircuts either. but we have a kids place that has movies and trains. the kids can sit in a firetruck or airplane while they get their hair cut. it really helps. it's $20, but worth it. maybe you have a place like that?!!

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

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
