This is my first 7 Quick Takes post! Excited to be trying something new in this blogging world. Happy Friday!
I got maybe three hours of sleep last night because of an infant who was throwing up and sneezing snot rockets all night. I think it's allergies... can a four month old have allergies?? Anyway, so, this morning, I had a brownie for breakfast.
My Mom JUST dropped this off .... it will probably get me through the day. I love Moms -- especially mine. She's amazing, thoughtful, and a solid example of a mother.

Weekend Project Alert! I found it on Pinterest. I used to think I was super crafty until Pinterest. Now, I can't seem to think for myself in the way of creativity. But, anyway, I'm going to make my own canvas prints (hopefully for $5 bucks each). I would like the pictures to be bigger, probably 11x14, and for sure printed in black and white. I want to buy a big, red 'W' and paint the canvas edges the same red. We have some amazing family photos that really should be displayed. I can't wait to modge podge with the Hubs and make our living room a bit more welcoming.

NFP Awareness Week is almost over! I can't wait to plan a little more next year and get some cool things going at my parish. How has your week been? Have you entertained the thought of NFP? I hope you've taken some time to explore the topic! :)
Last night was the first time I've been to Adoration since well before giving birth. After meditating on the 5th Luminous mystery of the rosary ( Institution of the Eucharist) while nursing yesterday, I had this overwhelming tug in my heart to go to Adoration and spend some time in prayer. After a particular trying night with the babe, I was feeling frazzled, disorganized, grumpy, lost, and completely empty. I needed muh Jesus. I went, and that hour with Him... mmmm. My soul drank His love, peace, joy, silence, Word, to its content and I left with a sense of ! I had a thought of getting some Moms together for a once a month or whenever late night Adoration fix... would you be up for something like this?
Seven things I'm grateful for this week:
1. My amazing husband. He is my rock.
2. A beautiful, growing spunky baby girl who has stolen my heart.
3. NFP. My ministry.
5. The blessing that is to be a stay home mommy.
