Meeting Blogger Friends

When I would read about other bloggers getting to meet blogging friends, I always wondered what it was like.
Was it awkward?
Did you get along and have fun or was it not what you expected?
I always hoped I'd get to meet someone I met through blogging, and there are so many of you that I would love love love to grab coffee with or watch our kiddos run around together.
If you are ever passing through Southern Oregon or visiting nearby, let me know!

Joleen and I met through Multiples and More while we were both pregnant with our twin boys.
She was almost exactly one month behind me and I enjoyed following her story at
Beauty and the Beef
 and encouraging her and giving her a "heads up" for what was next.
I remember sitting in my chair with my newborns, nursing and reading her delivery story. 

When she contacted me to let me know they'd be a within a few hours of our house, and could we meet, I knew it would need to happen!
We drove up to Union Creek and let the boys run around outside and then grabbed ice cream. My lovely Mom came with and seeing all the boys run around together was adorable.
It was a short visit but I am so glad we could do it. 
Joleen and her hubby are so sweet and I am so thankful she emailed me!

Joleen's littles are Abraham and Winston and as you can see from pictures, they are identical!

Going to meet friends!

All the boys in one shot...nearly impossible :)

Abraham and his baby blues!

Jack jumping...I think he liked being the big kid

Two sets of twins...Wintston (L) Abraham (R) 18 months and Christian (L) Camden (R) 19 months


  1. I've never met another fellow blogger in person.. I always have that same question: Is it awkward??? Maybe we will meet someday :)

  2. So much cuteness in this post! Glad you got to meet an online friend IRL. There are so many bloggy friends I would love to meet in person!

  3. I cannot believe I did not comment on this yet. Seriously I feel like I am a little hamster on a wheel right now =-) I am still so thankful we could meet up and I love your pics. You always do a lovely job editing.

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

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.
