What I Wore Sunday

A DRESS!  I finally ventured out of my peasant skirt wardrobe and wore a fun little black dress with a cute black and white cardigan.  The dress has an empire waist and can sometimes make me look pregnant, so I've been hesitant to wear it.  And of course I rarely wear dresses when I'm nursing babies.  I haven't nursed during mass for many months, even though I've had a nursing toddler.  But I can finally say that I think he's pretty much weaned!  He's nearing age 2 1/2 so it was time.  We've gone almost a week with only two nighttime nurses the night Daddy was gone.  He's a big boy now! (Although when I tell him he's a big boy he responds, "No I not.  You a big boy!")

I don't remember where the dress or sweater came from.  
The boots are from Kohl's.  I wore some simple silver jewelry...
a crucifix, little loop earrings, and my James Avery charm bracelet 
and heart with gold cross ring. And some RED lipstick!


My goal is to fit into my black slacks by the end of Lent, and to stay away from peasant skirts for most of the season!  Trying my hardest to stay off white flour and sugar this week.


A little Lenten reflection:::
First of all, today during Mass we had a lovely family with lots of talented singers attending who joined our choir at the last minute. What a gift!  Our choir director was without a voice, so we were very grateful for the other beautiful voices who joined in.  They have nearly perfected this gorgeous Ave Maria polyphony, except imagine it with beautiful male as well as female voices...


This weekend I had a beautiful Holy Spirit moment.  I drove to San Antonio with 3 friends to do some shopping at Costco and Trader Joe's.  We considered first attending confession and mass downtown, but we were all getting hungry.  We drove through one shopping area, but finally settled on my recommendation of the restaurant I love...

LaMadeleine!  We were in line ordering, and the next people to walk in the restaurant were MY AUNT, COUSIN, and COUSIN'S DAUGHTER.  I haven't seen them in maybe 5 years.  I couldn't believe it!  S.A. is a metro area of 2.2 million people and the people who came into the restaurant right after us were MY ONLY FAMILY MEMBERS who live in that city!  If that wasn't a Holy Spirit moment, I don't know what else could be!  Thank you, Jesus, for that very special gift, and for showing me that you are with me.  Even when I can't attend every mass or devotion that I would like, your Holy Will may be done in ways that we cannot understand.  What a special gift to see these family members!  I am still in awe.


See more ladies' Sunday best at

You're such a cutie pie, Blair. One of these days we're going to have to meet in person so that I can give you a big hug. :)

That's awesome, Blair! I'm so happy for you to see your family in that wonderful surprise!

How crazy and funny to run into your family in San Antonio!

Ok, also I LOVE your sweater! That is so so pretty! And really, red lipstick does any gal good.

Isn't it nice to wear a dress? I'm still sometimes shocked when I can tuck in my undershirt or wear a dress. It's a strange and wonderful freedom!

You look great! That has to be my favorite outfit since you started the what I wore on Sunday. :)

Rosie said...

Love that sweater and the red lip! And I'm a little jealous that you get such awesome music :)

You definitely do NOT look pregnant in that dress, but I understand the empire-waist fears. I haven't worn one in YEARS. I'm afraid of questions. Your whole look is fab, but the boots make it.

You look FAb.U.Lous in this outfit. RED lipstick rocks!! So excited for you to have had such a special visit and so unexpected. God is so very good isn't he??? Can't wait to visit next week.
