"Don't spend your energies on things that generate worry, anxiety and anguish. Only one thing is necessary: Lift up your spirit, and love God."
St. Padre Pio



I've been gone the past 2 weeks because well...we didn't go to Mass. I am not someone that can go to Mass when I am feeling bad. I just can't. I know some of you go no matter what and I'm sure your path to heaven will be quicker then mine and maybe once my kids are older that will change but for now if Momma is down we are all down.

Now to the clothes
Me: Gap dress from Thredup {kind of similar}. I recently sent 2 huge bags of clothes to Thredup and had a really nice credit on my account, so I stocked up cold weather dresses for Mass. 
Leggings Old Navy because it wasn't quite cold enough for tights. 
Cardigan Old Navy I grabbed on clearance over the summer.
Shoes from Zulily. They are amazingly comfortable and have a manageable heel.

Amelia's dress is Gymboree {similar style}from last winter and Shoes are Children's Place. They are adorable! Gray velvet boots with a ribbon tie. I wish I would have gotten a closer pic

Asher's top is Old Navy...also grabbed on clearance over the summer. 
Pants Gap. These are the best skinny slacks we have ever found.

Aiden's top is Ralph Lauren via Goodwill. I have a great secret Goodwill in a fancy part of Austin we hit up every now and then. They stuff is practically new and all name brand.
Pants old Navy and Jacket Nike via Goodwill

As for Mass is was very pleasant. We are finally at an age that my kids almost always act well. It makes everything so much easier. The mom in front of us was really struggling with her littles and I prayed for her and mentally tried to send her messages that it's all worth it 😉

We went to the early Mass which we almost never do anymore because we had an exciting afternoon of baseball ahead of us. Asher and his team {with Daddy as the coach} had their championship baseball game in the afternoon. So we headed home, changed and ate lunch and headed to the baseball fields. The game was amazing. Our boys played their hearts out.





And won 15-0! Finally...a first place trophy!



I know it might sound silly to some but we are a HUGE sports family and this win brought tears to my eyes. I know how hard Cameron has worked as a coach and how hard Asher has worked as a player and this was so overdue. They really deserved it and I'm so glad they finally got the big WIN!


Linking up with Rosie this week!

    1. Thank you! Being that we are in Texas we play almost year round. The spring is rainy and Asher is always so bummed when the games get rained out.
