{FF} Five Things to do When You Have Writers 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 hash out even a few favorites, takes or snapshot comments. In the past, I’d sometimes force myself to post anyway, often in a grumpy […]


{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 […]


{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 […]


{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 […]


{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 […]


{FF} Lenten Gift Guide

Catholic, Humor

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 […]


{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 […]


{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 […]


{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 […]


{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 […]


{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 […]
