What's Up Wednesday

 Hello there! Happy Wednesday! Today I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday. I didn't have answers for several of the questions, so this is a mini version of WUW. 😊 Let's get started:

Fun with Wigs :)

Hi there and happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend. I was able to spend some great quality time with my two best friends yesterday and quality friend time is food for the soul! It really fills my cup to spend time with my two best girlfriends. Now I feel energized and ready to head into the week ahead. Hopefully you do too!

Today I am sharing all about my journey to find the "right" wig. Well let me tell you, it was quite the journey! I thought it would be as simple as "find one you like, buy it, all done," but that was not the case. 

For the most part, I am just staying at home or running light errands, so prior to finding a wig I walked around looking more or less like this:

Friday Favorites

 Hello friends! I hope you've all had a good week so far. I think we have finally hit the end of our winter weather-- spring and warmer temperatures appear to be here to stay! We spent yesterday afternoon playing in the creek and the kids were on cloud 9 (me too!).

Kid Tested Healthy Recipes from Our Meal Train

 Hello there and happy Friday! Today's post is going to be short and sweet. Hopefully it'll give you an idea of a new recipe to test out over the weekend. Since my diagnosis we have had a Meal Train to help alleviate the burden of cooking/cleaning while feeling sick. The Meal Train has been wonderful and I am very grateful to live in 2023 where Meal Trains are so organized and easy for everyone involved! Anyway, we have had some REALLY good food delivered to us and I wanted to share some of the recipes. Not everyone has shared their recipes with us, which is fine of course, but I wanted to share with you our favorite healthy meals that we did have a recipe for. Starting with breakfast:

Not Just a Mom-- Day in the Life-- Weekend Edition

 Good Morning friends and welcome to the March edition of Not Just a Mom! 

Today we are sharing "A Day in the Life of Us-- Weekend Edition" and I am excited to see what everyone is up to on their weekends. 

Today I am sharing this past Saturday in the life of us. Before I start, let me just say this "Day in the Life" was on a day when I was feeling really good. I was 11 days out from my last chemo treatment and therefore, was feeling pretty close to my regular self. I intentionally did not choose to document the weekend prior to this because it would've been very uneventful-- I laid in bed and napped all day. I only say this because I would hate for someone else who is sick to read this one day and think "what the heck is wrong with me?" because I was able to be up and doing normal things. This isn't a "typical" day, this is definitely a "good" day, and I am very happy to document the good days right now!

Life Update 2

 Hello again friends. First of all, let me please start by saying THANK YOU. Thank you for your kind, encouraging comments. Your emails. Your prayers. Your generous things you've sent me (I'm blown away-- truly!). This experience has been difficult but it helps to know we have people in our corner praying for us and helping to alleviate some of this difficulty. When I started this blog almost 6 years ago I was a bored SAHM who was just looking for something to do. All of my friends were still working and sweet Lily Grace napped twice a day (man, it was easier back then-- hah!). I never thought anyone other than my family would read this, and yet God used it as a way to connect an incredible group of women who may otherwise never get to "meet" each other. Thank you, truly.
