|Officially an EM for my parish! :)|
|Can I just say that I la-la-LOVE wearing scrubs everyday?!|
|New hair!!! :) I just loooooove it.|
|My stepmom suggested making my own tortilla chips from actual tortillas!|
Cut, brush (or dab with paper towel like I did!) some oil, sprinkle some salt
and bake until crispy/golden! :)
|Just the girls.|
|Then we decided to get fancy and make something special the other night!|
What do you think?!
|My running has been a little... blah lately.|
But, this morning was PERFECT!
The weather was great and the run was good, too!
So, I did. No FB. No Instagram. No reading/writing blogs. No Twitter. No Pinterest.
Let me tell you... it was hard. It's amazing how intertwined my life has become with all things social media. It's something that I would like to ponder a bit more. Every time I wanted to 'gram a cute pic of the babe, I offered up a prayer. Every time I had the urge to tweet something silly, I offered up a prayer. Whenever there was some downtime and I wanted to grab my phone to look on FB/read blogs, I offered up a prayer.
I said quite a bit of prayers for peace yesterday. :) After the morning, though, it did get easier. I made myself walk away from my phone and keep a distance between us. Really, when I didn't see it, I didn't think about it as much. It was so nice. It was freeing. And, let's be honest... I didn't miss much. :)
It was such a good experience for me... I might try to do this weekly. Because what's the veryfirstthing I did when I woke up this morning? CHECK ALL THE THINGS! And, so it begins. It was a great reminder of what is important.
I hope your day of prayer and fasting was just as fruitful. Just b/c the day is over, please don't stop praying for peace. Peace in your heart. Peace in Syria. And throughout the world.
I hope you all have such a wonderful week!
Blessings and love,
