Little Man Mustache Bash!

When I began searching for themes for the twins birthday party, 
I knew I didn't want 
a typical "twin" themed party.
And so I searched Pinterest for something unique and fun....and happened upon this theme!
And it fit perfectly, because...well, I call them my Little Men!

I followed the link on Pinterest to this Etsy shop and began e-mailing the shop owner.
She was quick to respond, and helped to customize this whole set to what we needed.
She was fabulous to work with, and has other awesome things in her shop.
I would love for you to check it out!

So, yes...we did a Little Man Mustache Bash!
You see them everywhere now, but I hadn't seen one for little people and was excited to do this.
Of course, what is a little man without a bow-tie? 
So, I ordered these awesome bow-ties from my fellow twin mama blogger, Mandey!
She is fantastic. And check out this deal:

We had a little "Photo Booth" set up with props that people could use and then I made a little "guest book" out of all the pictures, adding Happy Birthday wishes with text on the pictures. I thought that would be so fun for them as they got older, to look through and see who came and all the funny pictures.

My Dad had a last minute surprise and had one of the local balloon artists come for an hour, and he was an absolute hit!
I have never seen a balloon guy this good, and the kids loved it....even the older ones (my husband) :)

The boys ate their cake (little bow-tie shapes) made by my Mom.
And as expected, Camden dug in and couldn't get it in his mouth fast enough....where as Christian, dabbled in it but I don't think he ever even got to the cake and he was done. 

It was a blast, and really it was a big THANK YOU party to all of our friends and family who helped us make it through our first year. People who brought us food, cleaned our house, watched our kids, drove us places, did our shopping etc. 
We are so blessed and so thankful!

And now for pictures!

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

Excited about Chemo, Preaching and Pumpkins.

As the days draw closer to my next round I find myself almost excited?!?!  Is that just the weirdest thing? I know what to expect now when I go, I have the BEST support system and I know it means one more round down and one more day closer to being done with all of this. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my week break in between, but I don’t feel anxious going in. I feel hope. Something I thought was going to be allusive this entire process.  ( PS: I reserve the right to change my mind about this at any point along the way!!) Tomorrow brings a blood draw, appointment with my oncologist (okay that always makes me nervous- I like the PA better) and then another Pre-Chemo Movie Night with friends and family. If Cinemark stops this before I’m done with chemo I’m going to have an issue!!! Oh and I get my hair cut!! You know, even if I mostly only go to doctors appointments you gotta keep the hairs lookin good. Tonight I got to teach/preach for the first time since March. I had a lot of anxiety go
