This has been QUITE a week. I wasn’t effected by the storm but I still have tons of friends and family on the east coast that still don’t have power. We decided this week that we would make awful candidates for the Amish.
Tonight I am going to Vespers for All Saints Day and the First Friday Art Walk downtown. I have been trying to go to the First Friday Art Walk for several months and I was either sick or it was raining the last several First Fridays. So hopefully it’s not too cold and I’m able to enjoy it. YAY for free things to do downtown!

I got a catholic [christmas] catalog in the mail yesterday from Monastery Greetings. And they have the prettiest Advent Wreath in the catalog. I think I might get it. When I was little we had a really nice one and it uh burned when I was in middle school and we haven’t found a nice one since.
The same website as in #3 has some really cool “Nun” products. Look at this cool cookie jar:
The last 2 weeks I’ve participated in a new link-up called: What I Wore Sunday. It’s about posting pictures of outfits you have worn to church. I’ve actually really enjoyed it and have loved the wonderful compliments I have been getting in my comments. YAY For self-esteem boosters. I hardly ever post pictures of myself and am a pretty shy/modest person and don’t always think I look good in my clothes/pictures. So it’s nice to see that others liked the outfits I picked out for Church.
Last fall RIGHT after Halloween I saw this on pinterest:
Publix last weekend I saw little pumpkins and we had avacado’s at home so I decided to make my own version on Monday:
I think it came out pretty good 🙂
Yesterday I Early Voted! YAY! So now I’ve done my civic duty and can block out all politic-ness until November 8th. And no I will not tell you who I voted for it’s a secret ballot after all 🙂

I love the nun cookie jar!
We make our own wreath each year and decorate it. One year we used Jesse tree ornaments, another, angels with prayer requests.
I have an advent wreath that’s very similar but the metal part is sort of scrolly looking. Don’t you love having an advent wreath at home? We never had one as a kid, so I was REALLY excited to get it last year lol.
The pumpkin is gross… which is the point!
Lame. we don’t get stickers for voting early.
I can’t wait to check out that site! Also, I’m glad you’re feeling comfortable posting pics on Sunday…you have a pretty face too, you know!

Hi! Found you over from Quick Takes. That Advent wreath is just beautiful! Last year was our first year to do the Advent wreath and we bought the plainest cheapest one..
I love the pumpkin too. It’s hilarious. I have seen those pics on pintrest a lot too.

That advent wreath is really pretty! I was definitely planning on early voting today but then…..well, the couch was just so comfy, ya know? Sigh. I’ll have to do it on my lunch break Tuesday now.
