7 Quick Takes on G/Valentine's Day, Mary, and Roadtrips [16]

1. Valentine's date with Jess
2. Ballet date with Carol
4. Discipleship group
5. King David in Kindergarten

I started a novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots on Tuesday. I learned about this bomb title of Mary at training this past summer, and really, really wanted to pray it. I probably should have because Jesus was showing all these different wounds and stuff, but I didn't feel like it was the time.

I wrote that post about my dating fast when I was on retreat with the Little Sisters of the Poor. So when I was the Greek Getaways on Friday, I suddenly knew it was time to pray that novena. So, obviously I waited until Tuesday to start...

It's been really great so far. It's amazing to me how as I do the meditation Mary reveals I different knot I need untied. I'm excited to keep going and see how it turns out.

Guys, my blogger is set to central time zone and I have no idea how to fix it. Can anyone help a sista out!?

Please enjoy this photo of me & my worst enemy/bff JohnMarc being reunited.

yes, this is a selfie.
It was good to see JMS & all the other mishes and catch up at the Getaway's this past weekend. This venue was much better and so much better to work with.

I did spill wax on my dress (what the heck!?). It is currently in the freezer so I can scrape it off. Wax is weird.

Last night Carol & I celebrated Galentine's day with some wine, chocolate covered strawberries, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and some good old fashioned dance partying.

"Guess what day it is!?"


One week from today I will be road tripping home to do some fundraising. I am looking forward to giving my parish talk and hopefully seeing some current mission partners to just catch up. It'll be nice to be home during a "normal" week - Joey has 3 basketball games and I'm going to try to pop up to KU to see Tommy for an afternoon. Then the big goal is to road trip back to CO through Lincoln to visit my old team and students. Hooray for road trips!

  1. When you first log into blogger, there should be a box in the upper right corner under where you log out. Is that what you're looking for?

    Enjoy the road trips! Sounds like fun :)

    1. Just kidding... that was languages. Time Zones is settings->language and formatting (under formatting). Hope that helps!

    2. AH YES! You're the best. Thanks so much, Sarah! This has been driving me nuts for months hahaha.

    3. Haha, otherwise known as spending wayyyyyy too much time getting acquainted with blogger. ;)
