I’m still not 100% sure last week even happened. So many crazy, wonderful things have come as a result of my oldest son’s visit to the State Capitol and his chance meeting with A&M superstar, Johnny Manziel. I suppose that’s the gift. Our family has been the recipients of some amazing grace, some unbelievable generosity and some touching messages. So, even when the insurance company called to tell me the wreck I was in a few weeks ago was with an uninsured motorist (news to us), I was all, “Eh, what are you gonna do?” And I moved on.
Life’s too short for that funny business.
Let’s talk fashion and faith, shall we? Every Sunday for the last few months I’ve been sharing “what I wore Sunday.” It’s been good for me because I am SO bad with originality when it comes to clothes. Just ask my husband. I get a new piece of clothing or find a combo I love and I wear it. A lot. Then I get something else new and do the same thing again. It’s pretty much a vicious cycle. The ladies I’ve met virtually have inspired me to look at my closet differently and shake things up a bit.
This week, I served as a Lector so momma had to dig out something nice. It’s not like I could slink in with the family on the back row and escape mostly unseen. Plus, I’m speaking to the youth at our parish about dressing up for Mass. Gotta walk the walk. Oh, and I pulled my hair back. Bad hair day.
Here’s this week’s duds. That skirt was a new find and I am IN LOVE. So, if you don’t like it, zip it. The jacket is an oldie but goodie. I bought it many years ago and it wasn’t cheap, but so worth it. I wear it a ton and it’s proof that Stacie from “What Not to Wear” got it right. For the staples, buy the good stuff. It lasts forever.

For loads of great inspiration, check out these fine ladies. Tomorrow, I announce my giveaway winner for Fr. Leo Patalinghug’s (The Cooking Priest) cookbook “Spicing Up Married Life” and this week on the blog I’m sharing my take on Lent, college football, prematurity and other fun stuff. It’s always a party here. I look forward to seeing you there.
