So Mike and I signed a deal to play our biggest hits acoustically on MTV...just kidding. Is that still a thing?

Anyway, what we are doing is trying to spend at least one night a week unplugged. Unplugged from computers, phones, TVs, etc. etc. etc. Those things always seem to creep into our evenings one way or another. Usually it stems from habit or from laziness. Often from boredom. 

"What do you want to do?"
"I don't know what do you want to do?"
You finish this conversation, ok?

“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!" Matthew 6:22-23

Oh boy, did I learn a few things about blogging and being a woman of my own word today. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow, but for now, here is your Gospel reflection for the day. 

Also, I did some praying from home this morning because I couldn't go to Mass. I haven't been super nauseated with this pregnancy, but Ellen made good use of her diaper today and then sat on my face, and that sent me over the edge. TMI? Sorry. I love being a mom. Happy Sunday!

Quick Taking it again. With Jen.

Are we all aware that yesterday marked the beginning of the Year of Faith? If not, check it out here.

My mom and I finished our sugar skulls yesterday. They turned out mighty, mighty fab. Here is a picture. I'm going to take more and do a post on them later. But, at least you get a little sneak peak. I know. You're welcome.

Amid rising secularism in today's world (1 in 5 adults is not religiously affiliated; and the number rises to 1 in 3 among adults 30 and below), the Pope has called for a Year of Faith to restore faithfulness in the Church.
