Monday giveaway: Can you guess which actor I have a "crush" on?

So, I am out of meaningful posts at the moment. 

My husband and I watched an older movie last night with one of our favorite actors.  And it reminded me of a conversation  I had with my hubby several months ago . . .

We were watching TV and the same actor was on.  After a few minutes, I looked at my husband and said, "Do not take this the wrong way, but is it OK if I have a crush on ______?"

He laughed, and said, "No, but only because he is Catholic!"

Now, if you know me in real life, you know that I am not one of those women who even thinks about getting crazy about actors, etc.  And when I say I have a crush, I mean that I think he is handsome, and that he is a moral, upright type of man.  Now, he cannot hold a candle to my hubby, but as far as actors go, I hold him in higher esteem than most.

So, I am trying to make this fun.  Make a guess as to who this is.  I think most of you will easily guess this.

For all who get it right, you will be entered in a giveaway! 

What is the giveaway, you ask??  It is a care package surprise with some of my favorite things!!

You have until Friday to guess and enter! 

Good luck!!


  1. Oh geez, I wanna say Mel Gibson, but he's sorta crazy now. Maybe Chris O'Donnell? He sort of does it for me :)

  2. Oh wait, can I get a second guess? Jim Caviezal!!

  3. It's got to be James Caviezel :)

  4. If this posts twice, I am so sorry! But it's got to be James Caviezel :)

  5. Well, I'm gonna go obvious- current tv actor, has some 'old-ish' movies...Jim Caviezel?

  6. plus, i should add, he is very handsome!

  7. I am guessing your crush is my favorite Catholic actor and that's Jim Caviezel. Or it could be my other favorite leading Catholic latino man and that's Eduardo Verastegui. I love both of them for the reasons you mentioned and their movies!

  8. I'm guessing your crush is the same as my favorite leading Catholic actor and that's Jim Caviezel. Or it could be my other favorite leading Catholic latino man and that's Eduardo Verastegui. I love both of them for the same reasons you mentioned and their awesome movies!

  9. Mel Gibson? JK!! I have no idea. I really couldn't name any catholic actors.

  10. Ryan Gosling. We just went to a movie with him in it. I saw or heard something about him being Catholic. <3

  11. I really don't know who is or who isn't Catholic in the acting world, however, after reading all the comments, the consensus point to Jim Caviezel. I am hoping they know you! lol Anyway, I am going to copy from them and say Jim Caviezel. Hope you are having a great week!

  12. Oooo, how about Eduardo Verastegui? He is one of my favorite Catholic actors, and he's pretty darn easy on the eyes! :) This is fun....I can't wait to know the answer!

  13. I'd say Eduardo Verastegui also. I met him at the March for Life a few years ago and I have to say the man is beautiful!!! :)

  14. I'd say Eduardo Verastegui also. I met him at the March for Life a few years ago and I have to say the man is beautiful!!! :)

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

Got Hope?

She was born on a Tuesday during Primary season of the presidential election.  Once settled into my room, I remember the TV being on and the news was all about secured presidential nominations.  The following morning, I scrolled through my Facebook feed and there was a great deal of incredulity.  Despair and hopelessness even.  I quickly turned away from it and struggled to get out of the bed, to begin my c-section recovery.  I had a precious little baby, Hope, to take care of after all.  I couldn't get swept up in the emotions of the what is going on in our nation, in the upcoming election.

And since Hope's birth, there have been many crazy, hard to believe, tragic events.  And during that time, my main focus has been on this precious life, on Hope.  It has been amazing how focused I have been on Hope and my job as her mother.

I need to nurse Hope.

Help Hope grow. 

Love Hope.

Nurture Hope.

Cuddle Hope.

I need to hold on to Hope.

As I heard the news about the tragedy in Orlando, I was…
