Linking up with Hallie and Jen today to highlight my five favorite things this week.
After Pope Francis, I think this pic was the second best thing to come out of the conclave:
This is why I never believed my mother when she told me that smoking doesn’t make you look cool.
Now that Lent is over and all the pressure is off, I can begin my diet without spiritual neurosis. I’ve tried a lot of different online tools for tracking calories, and I think this one is the easiest for me to use. It seems, at least, to have all my favorite foods in their database, so I don’t have to do the legwork of looking up calories and portion sizes on my own.
Above is not a typical sample day for me, but it’s likely to be typical until all the Easter leftovers are gone, specifically the Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs. They are my favorite breakfast food, which really should be another bullet here.
It gets me out of bed in the morning. I stress out when I don’t eat it. I like for it to contain at least a little bit of chocolate. And coffee.
Cheap religious art
OK, so not all of the art in this assembly was cheap. Lady Guad was a wedding present. And the statues were both gifts from Mexico. I’m mainly referring to the two Stations of the Cross: Jesus meets his Mother, and Simeon helps carry the Cross of Jesus.I found them at a thrift store last week, two for ten bucks.
They’re rather large, and painted on tin, so I think they probably hung in a church. My husband thinks they look kind of cartoony. He’s not a fan. But I’m going to have him frame them for me, and then I will put them…somewhere.
