All right, dang it, I’ve finally made up my mind to join the fun here.
As the token Old Lady in this link-up (if there is anyone else here over 40, yay! Leave me a comment and I’ll follow you), there are a few things you might want to know about me.
1. I’m a slacks-and-sweater type of gal, especially in winter. When the weather gets warmer I might dig some skirts and dresses out of my closet. You will likely see repeats of certain articles of clothing.
2. I take the photos for this meme, at least for now; I’m getting lots of practice taking self-portraits in the mirror. My head-to-toe photos will usually be, well, head-to-knees or something. I’m not ready to ask my family to take photos of me every Sunday. Baby steps.
3. I won’t promise that I’ll link up here every week; in fact, I probably won’t. If I do it might get a little boring (see #1).
So, here we go!
Sweater and scarf: Target. Pants: Don’t remember.
(See the ring? That was a Mother’s Day–or was it Valentine’s Day?–gift from Joe years ago. I never take it off.)
Shoes: DSW (I shared this photo in a 7 Quick Takes post a while back; today I wore the same shoes AND the same pants. I promise.)
Joe brought home the necklace for me just last night. He has been in Barcelona all week (Boy did I ever want to come; unfortunately he was working like 12 hours a day) for a technology conference, and he had a chance to visit the Sagarada Familia Basilica. The cross is modeled after the ones atop the spires.
(One of the many photos he took with his phone. Stay tuned for more!)
I thought of something during Mass today. You know how during the Eucharistic prayer when the priest usually prays for the Pope? Now that Pope Benedict is retired, Father just skipped that part and went right to the prayer for the Bishop. I wish he could have prayed for “Benedict, Our Pope Emeritus.” Would the Church allow priests to do this until a new Pope is elected? Perhaps I’m just having a hard time accepting the fact that Papa Benny is no longer the Pope.
Have a great week! Do you think we’ll have a new Pope by next Sunday? We’ll see!
(See what other ladies are sporting for Mass at Fine Linen and Purple!)
