MSB 38:  Beat-boxing and Generosity

, ,

Mass was an event today.  It wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t even muster a recap like a few weeks ago, though.  So that’s a small victory.  Here’s a quick recap: Moe did great while he was looking through one of the picture Bibles we bring to church.  That is, until he figured out how […]

Popcorn and Cardboard

,

I’ve felt nervous about announcing our pregnancy.  We are over-the-moon excited!  And no, it wasn’t a surprise (sooooo weird to be asked…but it’s sure easier to respond to that question here than at the grocery store). But—after seeing the backlash that the Duchess of Cambridge is facing for baby numero tres, people-pleaser me is anxious […]

The Whole Truth About My Summer Break

,

My teaching license *did* expire in July, so I needed to take a class at the last minute. Cee *is* doing better, so we *did* try to really enjoy the summer. But. But that’s not the whole truth behind my months-long summer break. From the day we found out we were expecting (this *is* an […]

Hair Trouble

As someone who dabbles in direct sales with Norwex and Usborne (thanks for checking out my shopping links!), I appreciate the work that others put into their small businesses.  When Mandi from A Blog About Miscarriage offered some Lilla Rose haircessories in exchange for an honest review, I was excited to give them a try.   […]

MSB 37: Just Take Me Now

, ,

This is a picture of happier times.  Miss Udele is almost 1 now, and has somehow managed to increase in cuteness!  Since after Mass today I was le tired and le haggard, this recycled picture of the same outfit will have to do. If I had been able to really pray from my heart today […]

MSB {34}:  In or Out?  The Big Mass Question

,

  I got a new dress for My Sunday Best this week!  Lands’ End offers new prints and colors of their fit and flare dress every year, but I refuse to pay full price.  I watch their website like a hawk, waiting to add a new dress to my rotation if they offer the perfect storm […]

MSB {31}: Skydiving with the Holy Spirit

,

Okay.  Quick aside since with crazy crazy life life I’m pretty much only able to write once a week. I met Kirby from the Internet! The delightful Kirby blogs over at Under Thy Roof about faith, mothering, and ballet.  And it turns out she’s a real person! We both attended a homeschool conference in Minnesota this […]

MSB {30}: Song Count Mass Tip

My Sunday Best!  With Cee and Bea!   We wore blue in honor of Ascension Sunday.  The other kids shimmied out of their church clothes as soon as they got through the door, so they missed out on the group picture.   No one was awful enough to be taken out of Mass today!  Cee hasn’t […]
