Seven Quick Takes Friday (Vol. 18)


A few weeks ago, I contemplated wearing a head covering everyday when I went out, rather than just at Mass. The thought being, if we are called to pray without ceasing, and since woman is called to cover her head when praying, then it follows that (a modest) woman should consider covering her head at all time. Right now it’s still hit or miss with me and it makes a great option when one is having a not so good hair day. (No worries, I do realize that the state of one’s hair should not be a factor.)


Grandma sent this gift to the girls. They will absolutely love it, but I don’t think that the phrase “Pop N’ Lock” was meant to be used in this manner.


One of the first friends I met here in Pasadena happens to be a hair stylist. I took DD1 in for a haircut and DD2 decided that she wanted her hair done too. So here she is, getting her first blowout:


Pardon the blurriness… one of my handmade Christmas gifts to give. It was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest.


Wednesday I talked about my favorite secular Christmas song. My favorite religious Christmas songs are: “Mary, did you know?” “Adeste Fideles” “O Holy Night” and “Hark! The Herald Angels sing.”


Yesterday, my hubs surprised us by coming home at 2:30p. He had us all get ready to go out because he had a surprise for us. This is where we headed and we had a blast!

Seeing the girls on ice skates for the first time was pretty funny. They have these walker-thingies for the little non-skaters to use. I can tell you, I was really glad I took that ice skating class in Grad School!


This is the photo that was chosen for our Christmas Card this year. I wish you all have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa and Happy Winter’s Solstice!

    Wow, I love that scarf-neckwrap thing! I’ve never seen something like that before, what is it?

    Merry Christmas!

    • Thanks, Jessica! I saw one like it on Pinterest. It’s essentially a thin circle scarf… Super long, so the wearer can wear it in different styles and lengths. The cuff is removable also. Thanks for the complement!!

  2. O holy Night is one of my favorites as well đŸ™‚ your girls are beautiful! Merry Christmas to you too!
