Urgent Prayer Request

A quick but urgent request. Can you all pease send up prayers for my friend Kelly? She is 31 weeks pregnant and the ICU with pneumonia and other related issues. Her pneumonia is getting worse and doctors aren’t able to give her the antibiotics she needs because they may harm the baby. Her oxygen levels […]

Year in Review: Most Posts

Sarah at Amongst Lovely Things is hosting a link-up of our “Most” posts.  You would think this would be a slapdash, phone-it-in type of post, but in reality it’s taken me down the wormhole of my own blog.  I’ve spent all night looking through my old posts and coming up with the “Mosts.”  I’ve had to […]

Help Around the House

Meals: My kids made dinner tonight. Without prompting, and with very little help from me, they made an actual dinner that we actually ate. You better believe we ate huge bowls full of it, even if it did have romaine lettuce as a main ingredient. Laundry: Today we took a field trip. I put on […]

These are a Few of my Favorite Things

1. Gorilla Glue. If your kids are sedate and well behaved, and your house is full of lovely things that never get broken by rough little hands (Tania, I’m looking at you), then you won’t have need of this item. If you’re me, though, it’s a lifesaver. Gorilla glue. as far as I can tell, […]

Win Friends and Influence People on Facebook

Hello, my name is Micaela, and I’m a recovering Facebook Jerk. I’ve been clean for almost 3 months now, and I felt it was time I made my recovery public. You see, I used to use Facebook as a way to share all my beliefs, controversial or otherwise, with very little concern for my friends’ […]

Did You Ever…?

Once upon a time, in my young(er) and debaucherous college days, I played [ahem] a party game called “I Never.” The purpose of the game was to [cough cough] get to know your friends better. You go around the circle and share something that you had “never” done and anyone who had done that thing […]

Faith: Theme Thursday

Faith: Theme Thursday My longest friend, Faith and I have known each other our whole lives. Literally. Our parents met when we were but babes in the womb. We went to the same parish in our childhood, planned to marry each other’s brothers, lived together in our tumultuous college years, and have seen the birth […]

7 Posts in 7 Days

You want to hear something funny?  On the way home from Santa Barbara today I was berating myself for being a bad linker-upper.  I’ve been linking up to other posts like crazy but I’ve been “too busy” to be a good linker and visit other people’s posts.  I decided that I was going to take […]
