So, it’s my birthday. It’s also one of my favorite holidays – Dia de los Muertos (or All Souls’ Day as some may call it). I told you before that my mom and I crafted up some pretty wicked sugar skulls for the celebration. Here are a few more pics of those:
So, since it is Dia de los Muertos, we are called to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. It ain’t no joke. They can’t pray for themselves, so we need to. So, today I will be praying for all of those souls. If you have a specific person you want me to pray for, leave his or her or their name(s) in the comment section below. I will say some good ones for your loved ones – it’s my gift to you…on my birthday.
So, what can you do for me on my birthday? I’m so glad you asked. If you haven’t already, subscribe to my blog via RSS or email since I no longer have GFC. I wouldn’t want you to miss out on all the haps. I mean, it’s my birthday, so you know, come on.
What is the plan for today? If only I knew. Mike is at work of course. And, since I am typing this on Thursday afternoon, I have no idea what Ellen is doing yet. I imagine she is giving no cares of my needs and instead pooping and demanding food. But, you know, I would much rather have to clean up poop today then not have anyone to clean up after. Aww. I know. Anyway, I am hoping for a bit of take-out/dine-out and perhaps a movie of my choice. I’m also planning on enjoying the presents from my rents (straight from my Pinterest boards, no less!): this this this and some really pretty bracelets that I can’t find the picture of. So generous :)
I just discovered a new band, which is a huge thing for me since I am no longer in college and the newest musician I have become familiar with is Laurie Berkner. Anyway, Jenni from Live Called introduced me to Oceans Above (it starts off slow so ff a bit if you want). They remind me of a Christian Postal Service. I am loving them.
If you’re looking for a way to celebrate with your kiddos today, this blog has a pretty easy, cheap, fun idea right….riiiiight…riiiiiiiiiiight here.
And finalamente, if you haven’t entered my latest giveaway, you can do that here. Win a copy of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms. Could have used that yesterday, eh? Why not win it today?
Now, go see Jen.
