While quick takes are usually hosted at Conversion Diary, today’s takes are being sponsored by the lovely Betty Beguiles!

Maggie is being baptized this weekend! I’m so excited for it. It’s just such a beautiful event; I mean, what’s more wonderful than seeing a new Christian being initiated into the faith?
Also, there’s going to be a party, with cake. AND, I get to hang out with one of my best girls, Elizabeth. She and her wonderful husband are going to be Maggie’s godparents.

Maggie got a really sweet gift from my best bud since forever, Mary. It’s a little, tiny, one decade rosary. It’s seriously one of the most adorable things ever. I’m planning to put it on Maggie’s wrist for her baptism, so hopefully I can get a good picture of it to share.

Maggie had her two month appointment today, and her first round of shots. Let’s just say, she handled it way better than I did. She literally only cried for about 45 seconds. That’s my girl.

I just wanted to thank all of you who left supportive comments on my post from yesterday. I really appreciate it.

I can’t believe it’s Lent next week already! Atticus and I decided to do a family sacrifice, so we are giving up ice cream. We both ate a small dish basically every night while I was pregnant, and we’ve continued eating it a few nights a week since Maggie’s birth. It’s not the healthiest, and we both love it, so it seemed like a great idea for a Lenten sacrifice.
I am generally (read, every single Lent) a failure at sticking to my sacrifice, but I am DETERMINED this year to do it!

What have you all been reading lately?? I don’t really need any new books for right now, but I’d love to hear about what you all have been reading.

Is it ok to wear a black dress to a baptism? I know you’re supposed to wear white (are you?), but I don’t really have much that doesn’t look like a pup tent on me, so I think I may have to wear something black. What do you think?
Well, that’s all. Have a great weekend friends!
