What I Wore Sunday- Volume 129

image

Happy Pentecost Sunday, and happy birthday to the Church!  Did you wear your red today?  I’ve been trying to follow the liturgical colors lately – sometimes I succeed and most of the time I don’t.  Today we succeeded.  :)

Pentecost-keep-calm

I saw an awesome post about Pentecost being the Church’s birthday, and now that I’m sitting down to write this post I can’t find it.  But if you’re not familiar with hearing Pentecost called the birthday of the church take a few minutes and look it up.  You’ll be glad you did. :)

All I have is a selfie today – but my handsome husband makes a cameo appearance!

On Pentecost we wear red.

Sorry, I had to say it.

Just a repeat reminder from last week!  The Visitation Project airs every Sunday night!  Be sure to check it out! It’s a new Catholic radio show for women, and it features some of my favorite people – Rebecca Frech from Shoved to Them, Bonnie from A Knotted Life, and Heather from Real Catholic Mom.  You can hear the past two episodes on their site here and a new one will air this evening! These ladies have been such a blessing in my life, and I know that you will love them too.

What I Wore Sunday – Volume 128

Well hello there!  Looks like it’s that time again – time to share your Mass outfits for all the inter-webs to see!  As I started this post today, I was thinking about our new readers.  We get an influx every so often – sometimes we are featured in various places, and of course we get traffic from all of you lovely ladies that are kind enough to link up with us every week.  We haven’t reflected on the purpose behind this blog in quite sometime, and I thought that I might throw in a link to an older post that talks about why we do what we do here.  So here you go!  If you don’t want to click the link, here is a quote that will summarize it for you in a few short words:  “Think about how much care you would put in to dressing to meet the Queen of England.  How much more care should you use to meet the King of Heaven and Earth?”

Moving on…what else have we talked about recently?  Oh, that’s right!  Marian Consecration.  Thanks to everyone who emailed/messaged their experiences and thoughts.  I appreciate all of them!  I am currently on Day 7 of 33 Days of Morning Glory.  Days 4, 5, and 6 were a pretty big reality check for me.  I’m still with it though!

While we’re talking about Mary – I just purchased the Kindle version of this book tonight.  So many of my favorite people contributed to this – and the main author is the awesome Michele from My Domestic Monastery!  There’s no way this book isn’t wonderful.

One more thing!! Have you all heard of The Visitation Project?!  Be sure to check it out!  It’s a new Catholic radio show for women, and it features some of my favorite people – Rebecca French from Shoved to Them, Bonnie from A Knotted Life, and Heather from Real Catholic Mom.  Y’all its wonderful.  You can hear the past two episodes on their site here and a new one will air this evening!  You will love it!

Whew!  How about an outfit?  Photo courtesy of the sweetest pre-teen I know. :)

What I Wore Sunday – Volume 127

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our mommas!  I hope you are having a fantastic day with all of those you love – or in a secluded place enjoying silence, whichever is your cup of tea. ;)

I don’t have a full outfit photo today, since we’ve been doing a lot of running around.  But I do have a selfie with my beautiful grandma who will be 92 in June!

Isn’t she just gorgeous?!

We are starting Marian Consecration at our parish this week.  If you’ve been following for awhile you know that this is something that I’ve gone back and forth on for quite some time.  No matter how dedicated of a convert you are, some things can still be hard to wrap your head around when you hear them for the first time, and for me one of those things has been Marian Consecration.  Not because I don’t love Mary, because I do.  When things are new and different, we naturally tend to pull away from them.  I am excited to start on the book and see where this journey leads.  If you would like to do the Consecration along with us, it starts today!  We are using the book “33 Days to Morning Glory.”  I will try and blog the journey as I go!

Come share your outfits/Mother’s Day/Marian Consecration thoughts with me in the link-up and comments!  Can’t wait to hear from you!

Welcome to What I Wore Sunday!  Today is also known as Prom Sunday here – my oldest niece’s senior prom was today! I’m a boy mom, so I really enjoy spending time with my nieces on days like today, and helping them get all dressed up and gorgeous.  This is the only photo that I have from today – it doesn’t show my whole outfit, but I love it anyways.  And her. :)

I really do love that tunic – the next time I wear it I will try and grab a full length shot!

Welcome to What I Wore Sunday! What a whirlwind it’s been since last Sunday – I feel like it’s been longer than a week since last week’s WIWS.

All I have is a cell selfie today – sorry about that!  It was pouring down rain here as we headed to Mass.

Welcome to What I Wore Sunday!  Last week and this week have been jam packed here, but I do have a photo this week.  It’s a phone photo, but it’s a photo! :)

unnamed

I kind of wish I had a photo of what I wore to my cousins babies baptism yesterday, because that was my favorite of the two – but I was too busy smelling the Chrism to think about grabbing a photo. :)

I can share a little Sacramental goodness though!

Happy Divine Mercy Sunday! I’m so sorry for the late (and short) post, and even more sorry that I don’t have a photo for today! We had several events at the Church this weekend, and in the midst of it all, I just did not get a chance to have my husband snap a picture. BUT – I want to see yours, so link ‘em up below!! :)

Side note – do you have a special devotion to Divine Mercy?  I would love to hear about it!

Easter Edition – What I Wore Sunday – Volume 122

The tomb is empty and Christ is risen!  A very happy Easter from our families to yours!   We are an Easter people and our celebration is just beginning.  The octave of Easter is one of my favorite times of the year!

Last night I was blessed to sponsor a friend who made her entrance into the church, so my photo from today is actually from the Vigil Mass.  I didn’t get one of what I wore this morning.

A quick scene from the Vigil Mass as everyone was filing in with their candles.

And here is what Sarah wore today!image1 (2)

Cardigan: Loft via St Vincent de Paul

Dress: Target vis ThreadUp

Thank you all so much for joining us today, and a special congratulation for all of the people who came into the Church this Easter!  Alleluia, He is risen!!

Happy Palm Sunday!  It’s the official start of Holy Week.  Are you ready?!  Please remember to pray for everyone professing their faith and entering the Church this week!  Most First Confessions have probably all been completed, but I’m sure some will be doing them this week before marching on toward the Vigil.  St. Helen, Patron Saint of Converts, pray for them!  :)

Here’s a little bit of Palm Sunday from my church:

DSC_0407

 

I tried to incorporate the red today, and this is what I came up with!

DSC_0432

There’s red there!  The setting sun just makes it look a little darker than it really is. ;)

Did you all wear liturgically correct colors today?  I normally forget, but I wear red a lot so I guess that’s why this one was easy for me. :)

Show us what you wore to celebrate Jesus’s entrance to Jerusalem!

Welcome to the 5th Sunday of Lent!  I hope your weather this weekend is as glorious as ours!  I feel like winter has drug on and on this year, and am still a little in shock to walk out to warm temps and bright sunshine.  My photo for today showcases the glorious weather. :)

DSC_9683

Shirt and Cardi I believe are both North Crest? Not certain.  But seriously, look at that sky!

And here are Sarah’s photos!

image image image

The skirt is from SVDP, jacket is thrifted (from Gap), boots are from Fred Meyer, shirt is from WinCo.

Just a reminder – anyone who is joining the Church at Easter please let us know.  We want to pray for you!

I also wanted to share a photo I took this week.  I think that black and white really encompasses Lent, don’t you?
