Miscellany Monday

It's been a few weeks, but I'm back at it with some Miscellany. Such a busy weekend.

 These are all phone pics by the way....

Adorable, no?

We all just woke up

Scuba Cam

Crazy I tell you....crazy

That water was nasty let me tell you

Thursday night was spent at Starbucks with my buddy, writing. Yes, more details to come :)

Friday morning I spent with my best friend who had just gotten back from The World Race. Remember this story? Yeah, well....she's working on a follow-up story, and let me tell you what, she has stories to tell!
We spent the morning at our favorite catch-up place laughing, crying and drinking great coffee and eating the best bagels in the world.

Friday night was date night and I took my hubby to Red Lobster. He loves crab. Loves. And it's like a once a year treat. He thoroughly enjoyed his pound and a half of crab.

Saturday morning was a little stamping/scrapbooking card party thingy that my other best friend hosted. I am not a crafty person like that, but it was fun and I'd pretty much do anything for her. :)

Saturday night...wait for it.....we made it to church! After months of either illness or some other reason, we were finally able to all go and it was fantastic. I'm hoping this is the beginning of a trend. I think some people might start wondering if Pastor Trevor is indeed married and has three boys....

Sunday I made bagels,

  Green Monster Smoothies

(yes it was a hit with the boys!) and

 Crock-pot Refried Beans. 

My garden is a growing! I am so excited. I have basil coming out my ears....want any?

Sigh. I am tired just writing all of that.

Happy Monday, link up with my friend Carissa for some Miscellany of your own....


  1. so fun to see you at church saturday! :) glad you got to make it. what a great weekend you had!

  2. Green Monster smoothies are delicious!! It's amazing how certain tastes can be masked haha.

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
