Five Favorites {September 18th}

Five Favorites, hosted at 

It's been a few weeks, so here are some favorite things or moments from the last month!

1.  What are you teaching the world today?!  This Kid (President) knows how to spell it out!

2. This week's Not Alone Series Link-Up - all kinds of Favorite Mom Blogs!  (this is one of my favorite link-ups - Five Favorites, that is!)

3. New York City!!!  I love going to visit this city and am super psyched to go this weekend to see my baby brother!  I'm purchasing a car - and I lack all of the anxiety that typically goes into that event!  YAY for family!

4. This Recipe - excellent individual cookie serving ... now only if I had some eggs left!

Oops - should have saved that for a Not Alone Series topic that's coming up...favorite recipes for one!  Oh, well!  Too Good not to share now!

5.  And this one too - pancakes!  I purchase the Fage 0% with the flavor on the side and use it for these pancakes - then put the flavor on the top with some Nuetella (or favorite chocolate hazelnut spread) instead of syrup!  DELISH!

1 Container of Yogurt (see above), 1 Egg, 1 tsp of Baking Soda, and 1/2 cup of Flour - mix together and it makes three perfectly sized pancakes in your frying plan (like regular pancakes)!  B-fast for 1!

Check out Hallie and friends for more favorites!


  1. Is 10:00 am too soon to try one of those cookies? I think I'll make one and call it brunch!

    1. Too Early for a cookie? NEVER! You are talking some kind of crazy!

I Look Into my Inbox and What Did I See?

I receive the weekly notes from the Catholic Match Institute since my unsuccessful dabble in Online
Dating some time ago (link) and today's included the face of one of my favorite priests. A man who helped me become the Catholic woman, for better or worse, that I am today. He is doing a series of five videos for CM through Advent. The first two are below ... I encourage you to watch them and stay tuned for the next three! Fr. Ananias, OSB - what an Advent treat!

When Others Despise You

In general I appreciate when people like me, as I think most people do. For me, it's really hard when people dislike me, even if I don't have to be around them all of the time. I get anxious thinking about the next time we will be in the same location and if I'll be able to just kindly avoid them or if there will be an awkward confrontation. There's a line in scripture about how blessed we are when others despised us because they hated Him first. Him, being Jesus, of course.

But is that always the case? Am I applying a section of scripture to a situation to which it has no relationship? Am I using a passage of scripture to make myself feel better about the actions that I'm going to take, to justify it to myself and others? Am I manipulating the Lord's words to promote my own agenda in the name of the Lord?

I wonder this regarding many things. Passages like "The Lord will fulfill His promises" in relationship to my relationship status. Did He promise t…

(almost) Another Year Older

Today is the day before my 32nd birthday. Thirty-Two years alive in this world and I sit down to try to actively think about what I've done in the last year, what I've accomplished to keep my mind from being overwhelmed by what I haven't done: marriage and kids.

When I was a kid, it snowed every single year on my birthday until I moved to Charlotte almost 9 years ago. Now this year, well it's the day before, but in Charlotte that's close enough to count I wake up to the below. So many of my birthday parties were cancelled or changed when I was a kid because of a giant snowstorm.

But anyway, back to the things I've accomplished this past year. I became a godmother, again, to a young woman who came into the Church through RCIA with her father. At 17 she was baptized and confirmed at the Easter Vigil.I was promoted at work. Twice. I've been given the opportunity to develop a new product offering and am going to spend the next year implementing it at a parish ju…
