WIWS #3

 
 
 
I am finally getting back to joining the ladies at Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore Sunday.  I really wanted to do a Easter Sunday post, but we decided, crazily, and at the last minute, to take the whole family to the Easter Vigil.  It was wonderful and even my 4 year old did fairly well until we lit the candles for a second time ( Reminder: Do not give a punchy-tired child a lit candle!).  But because of that, we did not take any pictures last week!
 
 
Luckily we are still in Easter! Happy Easter! So, we took a family photo after mass today.
 
 
We are not wearing our Easter Sunday outfits, but I think we all look pretty snazzy in our Sunday outfits!
 
 
What I am wearing:
 
Shirt: Tommy Hilfiger (Burlington Coast Factory)
Jean Jacket: From TJ Maxx
Skirt: Athleta (thrift store find)
Boots: Walmart
 
 
 
I have had a tough time with the fact that Divine Mercy Sunday in on the Sunday after Easter.  I will be honest, I did not get it.  I felt like we were going back to Good Friday and focusing on His Passion.  My husband and I talked about this yesterday and he said something really great.  He said that we (meaning he and I) were focusing on the wrong thing.  We were focusing on His Passion and the fact that His Mercy flowed from it, but we were mostly focusing on His Passion and NOT His Mercy.  So, today I really focused only on His Mercy; the mercy that He shows me EVERY SINGLE DAY.  Now, that is something to really celebrate with Easter!
 
Have a great week! 
 
And do not forget about my Catholic Family Gifts Giveaway!!

  2. I love the title of your blog, first of all! I hear quite often when I'm out with my twins that I have my hands full, and I always respond that we're very lucky or very blessed - I love that I'm not the only one who thinks that way!

    I think you and your family all look quite nice and well-dressed. I love your skirt! It looks very cute and comfy too. And I have to agree with the above comment - red and denim are a great combo!
