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 […]

I'm Baaaaaaack!

,

  Last year I committed to the Write 31 Days movement, and this year I want to try it again.  Although I didn’t manage to write for 31 Days in 2016, I did write much more consistently.  Last year I chose the theme of “Happiness.”  (Here is a list of all the Happiness posts, in […]

MSB {35}:  Soil and the Thorns of Suffering

This blurry-ish picture is courtesy of Cee for My Sunday Best.  I’m wearing my favorite Lularoe Carly. And here’s the rest of the crew: That about sums it up.     Every week, I go into Mass expecting to get a little note from God.  (The readings used by the Catholic Church are pre-set.  The Catholics […]

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 {29}:  Troubled Hearts

,

We didn’t have any slithering today at Mass.  Or major blood gushing.  Overall it was not the worst ever, either. I wouldn’t say it was great…I did have to stop Moe from chewing my sweater (because that’s a thing?!?!).  And Bea got wiggly, so David took her out for a bit. During consecration Moe was […]

MSB {24}:  Temptation: Jesus-Style

, ,

Thanks for hosting, Rosie! Me: David, will you grab the camera for My Sunday Best? David:  Could I take a picture with you? Me:  Okay…but who is going to take the picture? Various Kids:  Me!  I’ll do it!  I want to take a picture! We let them take turns.  This was the best shot.  Poor, […]

MSB {23}: Why are you anxious about clothes?

Here’s my Mass outfit this week: Top:  Lularoe Perfect T Skirt:  Lularoe Maxi Sweater, shoes, belt: Lands’ End As you can guess, I love me some Lularoe.   Now for Mass.  This passage from the Gospel of Matthew got me thinking: Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or […]

MSB {22}:  On Gawking and Wayward Ducklings

Oh, man. We were due.  We’ve had a lot of so-so or fine Mass experiences lately.  So we were due for a whopper. But first– the picture.  This is my Sunday best from last week, because I didn’t get around to posting then.  It works out great because this week I didn’t get around to posing. […]

MSB {21}: Ugh.  The Beatitudes

,

I took the oldest two to Mass today, so I was able to hear the whole homily.  The wheelchair accessible pew was even open.  Yay! I tried something new for My Sunday Best.  I’ve been watching a lot of Hilary Rushford from Dean Street Society, and one of her tips is shopping your closet for […]
