Continue to pray for Jennifer Fulwiler, the host of 7 Quick Takes and Catholic blogger over on Conversion Diary. Wife & pregnant mama to baby #6. She was recently diagnosed and hospitlized with pulmonary embolisms. It's kinda scary reading about it: Blockage of the main artery of the lung or one of its branches by a substance that has traveled from elsewhere in the body through the bloodstream (embolism). You can read more about it along with her updates over on: http://www.conversiondiary.com

Christmas season went by too fast. We started taking down our Christmas decor this week, but some of my friends say that they keep theirs up until January 13. When do you take yours down?

She is as cute as a button, but since her new found sense of independence (i.e. crawling, pulling up, etc.), lately she has been finding within herself her Little Miss Sassafras... 8 months going on 18. This is the stank eye that she gave me when I told her to stop eating the grass. I'm sure they'll continue as she gets older.

For a few months, I've just been eyeing me some wayfarer glasses aka hipster glasses (no pun intended) but with no real intention on getting any. So, when Firmoo emailed me and asked me to review a pair, my amateur blogging self was pretty elated. I am blind as a bat; so therefore, a pair of super thick lenses that make my Asian eyes look "beady" are a massive deal breaker for me! I already have a couple of pairs of pricey eye glasses (one for regular use, the 2nd as a back-up), but now these gems are my new favorite. Affordable price, stylish frames, thin lenses, and my eyes actually look normal. Not to mention, fast delivery and great service. Firmoo recently launched a First Pair Free Program that you can try risk free. So go check out Firmoo to get your free glasses now!

How about that Downton Abbey Season 3 Premiere?! I am greatly infatuated with this show. Anybody else feel somewhat jipped with that wedding? I was hoping for a little more... actually, who am I kidding: a lot more! However, maybe once I get my hands on the unedited UK version, I'll sing a different tune. Grand-Mama Violet Crawley aka Dowager Countess of Grantham is still by far my favorite character of the show (as well as my husband's) with her random witty one liners. Oh, Downton Abbey. I heart you.

Our little man's construction truck collection rapidly saw an increase over the Christmas season, as well as his vocabulary. He constantly asks "What's this?" to just about everything and to anyone. All day, every day. "What's this? What's this? What's this? What's this? What's this? What's this? What's this? What's this? What's this?" Yup. I would say that preschool is going well for his curious & active mind.
