Fill in the Blank Friday: I blog because...

......I like being able to connect with others, keep our family updated and share about what God's doing in our lives.
I started this blog soon after we lost our 2nd baby as an outlet to express kind of where my heart was at and I used it as sort of an online journal, really only having a few followers.
I just began writing more and more and then using the blog to document the twin pregnancy and updates on all three boys and then it became even more. 

I've met some incredible people, learned a lot about myself and I love knowing I can print this puppy off into a book and never forget the moments and the journey. 

I've had the privilege of guest blogging here and here
and I've had some incredible people blog on my site as well like this one and this one I've hosted fun giveaways, done some reviews and I really hope as I write more (if these little boys give me some time) that I grow in that area and really stretch myself. 

Sometimes I forget people other than myself read this, and then you post the sweetest comments and email me encouraging things and I am continually blown away. 
Thank you for reading, thank you for befriending me via blogs :)

What about you?
Why do you blog?
Link up with Lauren and the new look of Fill in the Blank Friday!


  1. I blog because it's freeing. I can speak my mind, write what I want and express myself. I like that I can look back over the years and read the memories and see photos of things that I've blogged about. It's like an online journal for me. I've met some amazing people as well and I love the circle of bloggers that I call my friends. :) I'm glad you blog cuz I love reading it!

  2. I blog because sometimes I feel compelled to write something the Lord has laid on my heart. :)

  3. I blog because I like to show my Grandmother and the rest of our family pictures of my kiddos, I like to have an outlet to share my feelings but I mostly just treat it as a journal and like you, often forget that people other than me are gonna read it!

  4. I blog because it allows me to freely speak my mind , connect with others, grow as a person and have a personal diary that I can always look back on.. I love this post!!

  5. I blog because if I don't, I'm afraid I'll forget all the wonderful things that make our kids and our family awesome to us.....I want to be able to share how we lived and the memories we made with our kids and our grandkids down the road. Trust me, my mind is a mushpit and without the written posts, I'd probably forget what I did yesterday!

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
