Five Mother’s Day Crafts That Moms Actually Want

The latest issue of Highlights Magazine showed up at my house making BOLD promises. Oh great, more art projects to clutter up my school room and hold onto for years out of guilt. NO THANKS HIGHLIGHTS! I shared the photo on Instagram and the general consensus was most of us hate kids crafts. I mean Read More

Five Things to do When You Have Writer’s Block

Since I started blogging three years ago, it’s been common for me to go through creative slumps, or dry spells, when I find it absolutely painful to formulate a post or even share a few favorites. In the past, I’d sometimes force myself to post anyway, often in a grumpy mood, and wind up with Read More

{FF} Favorite Lenten Traditions

I hate winter. I hate cold weather. And I hate being stuck inside my house. So it seems only fitting that this is the time of year when Lent falls. I could never do Lent in July ’cause even if I was giving up sugar or alcohol I could still be at the beach or Read More

{FF} What a Mom Wants, What a Mom Needs

Jumping head first into the deep end of Five Favorites once again and trying my hardest to not keep linking up with Heather or Hallie out of habit. (So see ladies, in the end it wasn’t some creepy internet stalker! Old habits die hard!) I mentioned in an earlier post how important it is to Read More

{FF} Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot in the Kitchen

This post could also be titled, “It’s Getting Hot in Here, So Stop Cooking With The Oven”. (I. am. getting so hot, I need to turn my oven off!!) As we’re coming into July with all the festivities of the fourth looming in the very near future, I wanted to share some of my favorite Read More

{FF} Honeychild Inspired

In honor of Heather taking the Five Favorites torch and not burning the house down, I’m drawing up my own favorite fivers. (I will use words to accurately describe them as my drawings often leave something to the imagination.) Here is me meeting Heather this July at Edel.   I’m so excited I’m howling at Read More

{FF} Lenten Gift Guide

If you mingle anywhere near the Catholic Blog-o-spere you know that Lent is approaching. Even though Ash Wednesday is only a week away, you may still be wondering what to give up and how to best mark the forty days leading to Easter. Maybe you’re starting to panic: which devotional should I read?? Which bloggers Read More

{FF} I Heart Dorothy Day

Last week Christy wrote a review about Dorothy Day’s autobiography, ‘ The Long Loneliness’. Day is one of my favorite Catholics and discovering her writings on the Catholic Worker Movement were a major turning point in my life. I know what your thinking, “But wait Kelly, wasn’t she just some wacko peace-nik hippy communist? She Read More

{FF} The Posts With The Most

Joining up with Sarah and Hallie for a recap of five (give or take a few) of my favorite posts from 2013. If you’re a new reader, or one of the few who jumped on this crazy train when it first left the station, take a stroll with me down memory lane and relive 2013 Read More

{WWRW} & {FF} A Book For All Seasons

I’m not going to call this a ‘gift guide’ but, let’s just say you can’t go wrong scanning my favorites, clicking over to my Pinterest board and taking notes for those hard to shop for Catholic women on your list. (Ladies quick! Email this post to your husbands!!)  Between being a bad blogger, a poor Read More

{FF} For All Your Favorites This Christmas

I’ve had several friends mention online that they’re either well into Christmas shopping or, gasp, they’ve completed it altogether. I’ve never been one who gets too much accomplished before December, at least in the gift department. I often try to make gifts. The result is numerous late night crafting sessions that do little to emulate Read More

{FF} I Get To Run In My Cow Sweater, and a few other things

I’ve run covered in dye, mud and lured by alcohol, but now, I face the greatest 5K of all; 1. The Ugly Sweater Run! Within five minutes of me spotting a half off coupon for the upcoming run in Philly, I was registered. So many of my favorite things rolled into one run; I might Read More

{FF} With The Right Ap, My Kids Say The Darndest Things

I always get a chuckle when other friends share the crazy stuff their kids say. In hindsight, I have not recorded enough of my own children’s gems, though I’ve taken to sharing quite a bit of their drawings on Instagram (for posterity of course.) When I saw this pin on Pinterest, I knew I had Read More
