Marylous, Matching Shirts, and Mini Eggs....

What a weekend!! We are TIRED . We were originally planning on sticking around Woburn this weekend, but I realized I left my purse down the Cape last weekend....sooo Saturday morning we packed up the essentials and took off to Cape Cod for the night. The weather was supposed to be wonderful this weekend, so we figured why not? Trying to live in the moment a bit more these days (which is tough to do with three littles). Marylous: Matching Shirts: And Mini Eggs: We took the boys to the beach when we arrived on Saturday. It was such a nice day. We brought them in the wagon and they walked off and on. When we arrived at the beach, Conor and Caden got out and ran around. Cal fell asleep in the baby bjorn, so I put him down in the wagon on top of the boys blankets since it was empty. It made for a nice little crib on the go! Individual time with Mama. #ConCayCal  :) We live on kind of a main drag in Hyannis, so there are always road race

How Bout Them PATRIOTS?!

What a great day yesterday! My Dad and I brought Conor, Caden, and Zeta to some woods in Waltham and met my Aunt Julie and her two dogs. We brought the wagon in case the boys didn't want to walk anymore. It was right before nap time, so I thought they would be real tired. But they did pretty well! It was nice to enjoy some outdoor time and fresh air - especially with all these sicknesses going on. Then the Patriots flipping won the superbowl!!! Like, what!? Amazing game. I gave Cal this ridiculous fohawk...I loved it. HA. Phelan family photo. This morning we all woke up - and I was hoping that I didn't dream that they won last night. Still in disbelief!! All for now! Enjoy that excitement come the duck boats!! xo, Shaz

***This is a guest blog post from Lindsey Macomber Callahan, Skin Cancer Survivor*** " Mohs surgery , also known as chemosurgery, developed in 1938 by a general surgeon, Frederic E. Mohs, is microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer. During the surgery, after each removal of tissue and while the patient waits, the tissue is examined for cancer cells. That examination informs the decision for additional tissue removal." Read on to hear about Lindsey's experience at Massachusetts Eye and Ear in Boston. Some photos are fairly graphic, so please stop reading if you are sensitive to blood/swelling. ;) It has been exactly one year since I had Mohs surgery to remove a Basal cell carcinoma from my upper lip. Time flies! One year ago I thought my face was going to be ruined forever and my lip would never the same. Though that may sound dramatic, it is SCARY to find out you need to get invasive surgery on your face… less than thr
