What I Wore for my Sunday Best

It’s been awhile since I’ve done this, and because I know that’s why you keep checking here, I would hate to disappoint. Also, how could I miss jumping on the double linkup train? I couldn’t, so here I am, linking up with FLAP and Camp Patton.

What I Wore for Sophie’s Baptism

Finally, Sophia is no longer a heathen! She was born two days before Lent started, and this was the first post-Easter weekend that was free (how is spring always so busy??) so we were able to cross her first Sacrament off the list. She even got into everyone’s good graces by not crying and waiting to spit up all over her gown until after it was over. Continue reading

What I Wore Easter Sunday + OTI Linkup

If you’ve been here before, you’ll notice that my blog looks different from what it used to- I’m switching to WordPress and still working out a few kinks as I go.

I’m linking up with the usual FLAP this week, and joining the Easter one that Grace, Kayla, and Erica are hosting as well. Because nothing says, “He is Risen!” like seeing what I wore to Mass.

We didn’t manage to get a nice family photo like I had hoped and we may have forgotten to give Grace her Easter basket (she didn’t remember either!), but we did get a pew at Mass and both girls were well-behaved, so I suppose it was still a win. Continue reading

What I Wore Sunday: St. Patrick’s Day

Joining up with the ladies at Fine Linen and Purple to show off our Mass-wear… you know you missed seeing these the last few weeks.

I’m still in that oh-so-awkward stage of no longer filling out my maternity clothes and definitely not squeezing into my prepregnancy pants, so it’s really limiting my wardrobe. Also, I discovered this morning that I don’t own very much green, so my options were even more constricted. Here’s what I came up with after nearly giving up and wearing my momiform of a tee and yoga pants to Mass- luckily I haven’t hit that low yet: Continue reading

Firmoo Glasses – First Pair Free!

I had seen Ana’s post about some stylish new glasses she had gotten from Firmoo, an online eyewear store, and had decided to make a new pair my own. It’s only been about, oh, six years since my last pair of glasses, so I thought it was high time I got a new pair. (To be honest, the first four of those years I’d primarily been wearing my contacts, but still.) All I had to do was get my eyes examined, but I’m nothing if not a procrastinator and took a good month to schedule an appointment. Luckily for me, my procrastination paid off! I got an email from none other than Firmoo offering to give me a new pair of specs for an honest review on my blog. Sweet.

Anyway, Firmoo has this awesome deal going on right now- your first pair of glasses is free! All you pay is shipping. How awesome is that? They have a large selection of both prescription and nonprescription glasses on their site, so there’s something for everyone, whether you need glasses to improve your vision or just want to expand your fashion accessories.

After I went to my exam and had my prescription in hand, I made my way over to their website and found these glasses in the tortoise color. I uploaded a photo to virtually try them on, entered my information (which was very easy!) and placed my order. It literally took just a couple of minutes. They shipped rather quickly and overall, I was pleased with the results:

and closer:

I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the glasses came with a repair kit, travel case and cleaning cloth, which I’ve never had included with any previous glasses purchases… maybe I only shop at cheap places, but I thought it was a nice touch.

In the interest of full disclosure, I was disappointed to see that the inside of the hard case was cracked when I opened it. Not a big deal, just keeping it honest.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend heading over to check out Firmoo and taking advantage of their first pair free deal pronto. If you don’t like them, you can refund or exchange them, so what’s to lose? Now scoot!
