What I Wore Sunday – Volume 117

image

Welcome to What I Wore Sunday!  We’re so glad that you’re here!  It’s been a quiet week on the blog this week because life has been a little on the crazy side around here.  This coming week should have some good information on Lent, and we have a few guest posts in the works.  Stay tuned!

Thank you all for the prayers for my mom!  She’s doing better every day.  We had a setback, but I think that we have that taken care of.  Please continue to pray for her!

Have you all seen this series from Brittany at Equipping Godly Women?  This link has a summary of the series and a list of the posts – clickable for the ones that have already been written, but also a list of the posts still to come.  I’m hooked on the series and really loving following her journey.  As a convert myself, I love seeing the journey that leads other people to the church.

Alrighty, on to the point of the post!

Here’s What I Wore Sunday:

Pants – a gift from my sister

Welcome to What I Wore Sunday! I hope you all are having a blessed Lent.  Here’s what’s happening in my neck of the woods:

image

Seriously y’all.  I went to Mass today and it’s the first time I’ve been out of the house in six…count ‘em…SIX days. It’s been a -5 artic tundra out there.

I don’t have a great shot tonight. Actually all I have is a car selfie.  Sorry about that. You’ll recognize the sweater from a previous post – it’s one of my favorites!

image

Several of you have asked about my momma. She’s out of ICU, eating well, and doing much better!! Please continue to pray for her

How is Lent going for you?  One of the main things I’m working on is patience.  Enter a week of snow days! How’s that for timing?

Let’s get to the link up shall we?

What I Wore Sunday Volume 115

I can’t believe its time for What I Wore Sunday! This week has been a complete blur.  I attended evening Mass, but unfortunately don’t have a photo as I was coming from the hospital.  My mom had a very serious complication from her surgery and was rushed to emergency surgery early Friday morning.  She is now in the ICU recovering, but is at risk for further complications.  If you all could pray for her healing it would mean the world to me!

I may not have a photo, but I’m sure all of you do!

What I Wore Sunday – Volume 114

Hello!  We’re so glad that you’re joining us for What I Wore Sunday!  I will try and get a photo up in a little bit, but wanted to get the link-up ready for you early birds.  My momma had a pretty major surgery this week, and Sarah has had some things going on too so it’s been a bit quiet around here.  If you all could pray for both of them and a special intention we would all appreciate it very much! :)

What I Wore Sunday – Volume 112

image

Hello hello, and welcome to What I Wore Sunday!  It has been a crrraaazzyyy weekend around here so far, and I have a couple of things to tell you all.

FIRST of all – THANK YOU to all of you who have gone over to Roses For Mary’s Etsy Shop and purchased a rosary!  Becky reported that after our give-away she has seen a rise in business.  I appreciate you all for supporting her – what a fabulous way to repay her kindness in donating a rosary for our give-away.  If you have ordered one, send us a photo either via email or on our Facebook page – I would love to see what you chose!

We have a dear family friend that just underwent a MAJOR surgery.  It was successful so far but is still wait and see, so I would immensely appreciate your prayers for him!

AND!  Inquiring minds what to know if you took part in the lipstick challenge.  Sarah will post a recap this week of how it went for her, and of course we will want to know how it went for you. :)

Alrighty, onto the outfits.  Here’s my photo:

flap

My outfit details are prreettyyyy well non-existent this week.

Sorry about that.

I’ve owned this shirt and these pants for quite some time.  I think the pants maybe came from Goody’s?  The shirt could have too.  The sleeves on this shirt are meant to be somewhat baggy at the top and sometimes I love that about it and sometimes I don’t.  Overall I love it though.  Oh, and i promise those pants were clean.  No idea what that white spot is about!

What I Wore Sunday: Volume 109

What I Wore Sunday linkup

Happy Sunday! Sorry this is up so late! We have Melody hosting this week and I’ll let her introduce herself!

~~~

Thanks so much to Fine Linen and Purple for having me host this week! My name is Melody and I blog over at Melody’s Harmonies. I’m married to a wonderful geeky beer-loving student husband and I work as an Administrative Assistant in Property Management. In my free time, I read, bake, decorate and try to be the oh so domesticated housewife.

Yesterday, December 6th was the Feast Day of St. Nicholas. You may also know him as Santa Claus! St. Nicholas was a 4th century Greek Bishop who cared for the poor, gave gifts, loved children and punched a heretic.

There are all sorts of great ideas on how to incorporate St. Nicholas into your family’s celebrations and how to do the whole St. Nick vs. Santa Claus thing. Luckily we don’t have to deal with that just yet as we have no children, however I’m keen to make sure we still celebrate these important feast days of the church. Since this was our first year celebrating we decided to start small with the most well known tradition for celebrating the Feast of St. Nicholas – leaving our shoes out for St. Nicholas to fill with goodies! St. Nick will then fill your shoes with coins, and other treats/presents, especially ones that encourage us to think about the real reason for the season: the birth of Christ.

IMG_0569

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend celebrating the Feast of St. Nicholas! If you missed it yesterday and have young children (who won’t know any different) then there’s no reason why you can’t celebrate another day during advent and then pick it up next year!

If you need a few ideas for St. Nicholas gifts, I put together a few for you:

The True Saint Nicholas

Saint Nicholas: The Real Story of the Christmas Legend

The Baker’s Dozen

The Miracle of St. Nicholas

Nicholas: The Boy Who Became Santa

Saint Nicholas and Angel

Pyjamas

Slippers

Chocolate St. Nicholas

Chocolate Coins

And now unto the main event: what I wore Sunday!

Its winter and I’m in Canada so usually my outfits look like this:

IMG_0619

Coat: Old Navy
Hat & Scarf: Thrifted

But sometimes in mass my winter gear comes off and there’s a pretty outfit underneath!

IMG_0618

Sweater: Reitmans
Pants: Thrifted Banana Republic
Boots: Naturalizer (which you can’t see in either picture – sorry!)
Earrings: So old I do not know where they came from but they are my favourite!

Thanks so much for having me! Please pop over and visit me at Melody’s Harmonies or you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!

What I Wore Sunday: Volume 108

What I Wore Sunday linkup

I don’t have a picture today because I was in such a rush this morning and after Mass! So instead I’ll share another photo from our photoshoot last weekend!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving this week!
