Friday Things That Make Me Smile







This week...

I had 2 moms show up for Rosary group.  THAT. FELT. GREAT.

I celebrated St. George's feast day with a cake and some Playmobil dragons.

I cried a few days in a row.

I finished Brideshead Revisited and LOVED it.  It took a little bit to get into...but now it won't leave my brain.

I also finished Brain on Fire...which was a little slow going for me.  My friend LOVED it...but after reading Still Alice I just get terrified over what can happen to me.

I am now going to read a really pretty copy of Emma.  Reading pretty books makes it more fun.

Jack had his first game on Tuesday in Minors for Little League, Lucy has her first game Friday night.  Drew was such a good boy this week and I was ever so happy that he saw the play with us last week.  It just feels official that we are a family of 8...he was not left home with a babysitter.  It was a big night for us.

We watched the movie Big Eyes on Sunday night and it was really good....people have crazy stories.

My mom and dad are visiting soon and I am so excited about seeing has been way to long.

The sun came out and is supposed to stay for 3 days...Life. Is. Good.


  1. I just got teary eyed thinking about my rosary group from years ago. We would get together every Friday morning at 10 and say the Rosary. Then we would get to visit with each other afterwards. I really miss that! I'm glad you are seeing some sun!

  2. Hooray for sun! And did you do the lettering for your chalk board? Gorgeous- like your girls.

  3. Yay for the sun and your Rosary group! Also having a visit with your parents AND the sun...perfection! I must say that I felt the same way about Still Alice. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. What was your favorite part of Brideshead? I am just finishing it now, and next I will go back and read the paper Gabe wrote about it seven years ago. The most impressive part for me was Julia's declamation on sin. Waugh nailed it! (Oh, and I just realized you posted this on Gabe's 25th birthday!)
