Blogging in 2016

Despite the cough medicine with codeine I took last night, I couldn't sleep. I can't seem to get healthy, now dealing with bronchitis...it's just lovely.

I decided to go back to the beginning of my blog and read. I loved it. The pictures posted with my entries that I hadn't laid eyes on in years, remembering where I was and what God has brought us through...it was just what I needed.

I also realized that I missed blogging.

I first blogged for fun, then as a journal to keep track of the kids, sort of like a scrapbook and then I was stepping into the world of reviewing product, networking and paid advertisement. And then I let my domain lapse and it was harder than I imagined getting things back up and running. I lost all of my following as well as my desire to write.

Life got busy and I decided to only write when I felt prompted to, and that was nice. It was nice to not feel the pressure of keeping up with the blog and just writing occasionally. I realize though, it was was quite the outlet for me...even if it wasn't all super deep or inspiring.

So, I've decided to make it a goal to blog at least once a week and get back to documenting life. I'm hopeful to print my blog into books this next year since I'm not a traditional scrapbooker :)

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.
