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!

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!!!
