WIWS - almost 28 weeks!

Linking up with What I Wore Sunday...featuring a lovely guest host this week! A million congrats to the usual host, Emily, as she begins her married life!

28 weeks in a few days...that means we made it to the third trimester, friends!!!



Look how big that baby girl is getting!!! I'm sooo excited to meet her!

I'm doing something I never get to do at noon - blogging! Normally my hands are full with my favorite two year old, but since her Uncle is visiting this weekend (the Abbot's brother) my hands have been a little less full. Those three troopers are out walking in the rain, right now, trying to wear out Sister Stinky a bit.

Speaking of worn out...I don't know why I've looked so tired in my last few WIWS posts! I'm going to chalk it up to the low iron and what not but I'm starting to feel like some eye make-up is in order to make me look a little less like a zombie straight out of one of the Abbot's action movies. Eye make-up suggestions, ladies? I'm thinking inexpensive and easy. What eyeliner and mascara do you use?

The Gospel was one of my favorites this week, by the way. I love when Jesus says, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. Not as the world gives, do I give it. Do not let your hearts me troubled or afraid." It's so easy to focus on wanting the kind of peace the world offers. I've been sooo guilty of that this pregnancy, as I occasionally wallow in the unfairness of my hyperemesis. But then I remember - the peace of Christ is so much deeper. And it doesn't look like the peace of this world. It is the peace that only the cross can bring.

Ave crus, spes unica (in the words of one of my favorite religious orders. Hail the cross, our only hope.

  1. I say blame the pregnancy for any tired issues! I've found eyeshadow does a better job opening up my eyes and making me look less exhausted than I really am... Find a color palate that works for you and make sure you're highlighting the inner corners of your eyes to really open things up. Mascara and liner help, but I think liner has a bit of a learning curve and shadow is much more forgiving!

    1. Ohhhh...I like your suggestions! I do have eye shadow, I just don't think to wear it most days but that could totally work! Liner does seem to have a learning curve (and I am nowhere near mastering it yet!) so this could be a good solution. Thanks!

      Btw, some family friends are expecting twins next month...I'm going to pass along the link to your blog because I think they would greatly appreciate it!!!

  2. I wish I had some eye makeup advice but I don't - I just buy at Target. But I love that you incorporated the readings from today into your post! Love your stripey dress.

  3. I really like Rosie's ideas on the makeup. I find Revlon or Loreal to be pretty forgiving and they don't irritate my eyes. there is also Almay which is a little bit more but hypoallergenic.

    You look naturally beautiful my friend. There is a baby on the way!! Wahoo!! I hope your able to rest. Happy Sunday!!

    1. Thanks!And everyone pregnant mama loves being told they look beautiful :-) In all honesty, I never wear make-up because the Abbot says he likes how I look without it. What a guy, huh? I am tired of looking so tired this pregnancy, though, so I think that Rosie's suggestion combined with yours is the way to go!

  4. Pregnant and tired?! No way! ;) You look fantastic! When I'm tired I always swipe on a little mascara! I instantly feel (and hopefully look) 10 times more awake even though I'm pretty sure it's all in my brain! :)

    1. Oh my goodness...it's the feeling more awake that I need ;-) What brand mascara do you use? I feel like I'm not a huge fan of the one I normally use...not enough volume, you know?

  5. You look great! And I usually look way more tired than that and I'm not pregnant. My one-year-old wears me out though!
