7 quick takes friday (vol.15)...


It's ARMY - NAVY this weekend! Woot! Woot! I can't wait to see my midshipmen crush Army. There will be chili and lots of cheering and chanting. It's going to be awesome!



I am absolutely in LOVE with designer Heather Bailey's new fabric line "Nicey Jane" It makes me happy just looking at it. I see spring dresses and skirts for summer. Happy, so happy. Can't wait to get started!

I LOVED this post written by Bethany Hudson for the Phases of Womanhood website. AWESOME insight. It really helped me this week. I hope it inspires you as well.

Your quote for the day:
“Kindness is our imitation of Divine Providence. Kindness, to be perfect and lasting, must be a conscious imitation of God. If you are earnestly conforming yourself to the image of Jesus Christ, sharpness, bitterness, and sarcasm disappear. The very attempt to be like Jesus is already a source of sweetness within you, flowing with an easy grace over all who come within your reach.”

For your viewing pleasure...the best version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. Just fabulous! Enjoy...

Thoroughly enjoyed brunch with my family this past weekend. I got to spend several hours with my nieces and nephews. It was fabulous! They are all growing up so quickly. Where does the time go? We will gather once again on New Year's Day. It's going to be here before you know it. 2010...WOW! It's official...I am old!

Tomorrow is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadeloupe. She is the patroness of the America's and one of my favorite intercessors. May she continue to watch over this great nation (and help Navy beat Army) of ours especially now during such trying times for so many. We will be saying a family rosary in her honor. What are your plans for the day? Anything special?

Happy Friday Everyone!
