Miscellany Monday

fun times be happenin' here....

PS: I have purposefully NOT brought my big camera on these trips...wanted to focus on the moment and not about "getting the shot"...hence the low quality phone pics

day trip to the coast

seriously people!?

For a successful family picture, strong holds must be placed upon the younger two

i don't think it could get any cuter. 

Wildlife Safari

He hopped on the camel like he'd done it a million times before. no hesitation.

Salt & Straw

Heaven on a plate
The Waffle Window

and we did all these little trips in our new to us....

other things worth mentioning:

jack turns 5 next week. i might cry.

trev has two classes left until he is up for ordination. he's done awesome.

big boy beds are going well! yay!

major adoption fundraising in on hold for now. we don't know the exact direction we are ready to go yet, sort of waiting on things to clear up, so instead of fundraising without a clear picture, we'll just keep the money raised in the account it's in until we are a little more ready to dive in!
*note* this does not mean we aren't adopting.....this just means we aren't actively fundraising at the moment :)

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 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
