My sister graduates from college tomorrow!

The one on the right.

Congratulations, Christiney!! I love you, I’m very proud of you, and I can’t wait to see the changes you will make in the world!


This has been quite a week, so I’m going to cop out on this 7QT. Please forgive me.

My cousin and good friend told me on Thursday that she’s frustrated that I haven’t been writing as much lately because she has nothing to read at work… I’m frustrated, too. The plan is: cop out on these quick takes and then get back on track.


A Catholic friend of mine just started up his new blog. He is also a creative writing professor and an MFA-holding writer, so if you abandon me for his blog, I understand.

Fighting Words


Congrats to my brother in Christ!! Praise be to God for the clarity in his life for this next step toward his vocation!


The smell of gas fumes, the burn of rubber, the muffled sound of 160mph that still sounds like one clamoring note of dropped pots and pans for hours at a time…. yes folks, I did it. I went to my first NASCAR race.

I was going to write a post about it… but as my cousin pointed out, I have been slacking. Oy vey.

You-know-who’s shirt.

I linked to this on Twitter this week, but I want the non-Tweeple to see it too.

WatchONLY IF you are ready to let your jaw fall out of socket and to start drooling all over your keyboard.


This was the most fun Bright Maidens post week yet because we got to read all of YOUR posts addressing “Why Mary?”
