This Week’s Fave Roadtrip Destination
Anyone who’s read my blog or followed me on IG or FB, knows that we are Disney lovers. Two years ago, my daughter Bella and I took an impromptu girls trip to Disneyland. We had soooo much fun, we made it a regular thing! During Bella’s winter break, she and I kissed Brian and the boys good bye and spent a long weekend at Disneyland. Extra bonus, my mom and sister joined us, making it a true girls’ weekend! (More pics in next week’s Online Daybook/ Currently post.)

This Week’s Fave Entertainer
Michael the Piano Player
To go with my Disney love, is Fave #2 – Michael the Piano Player. I loved his pep and sense of fun as he played, especially when he caught me recording him. 🙂

This Week’s Fave Praying Tool
Photo credit: Do Small Things with Great Love
I purchased this Rosary Booklet from Do Small Things with Great Love.com and it is great companion to praying my rosary this Lent. Each mystery has a short Scripture passage, a virtue, fruit and reflection. It helps me to go deeper into the rosary without being overly complicated or too long for my busy day. Love it. Available in digital and printed form.

This Week’s Fave Soundtrack
I finally went to go see The Greatest Showman a couple weeks ago and loved it so much I wanted to see it again once more on the big screen so I watched it again last weekend with my Mom, sister and Bella. We all loved it and spent the rest of the weekend listening to the soundtrack. If you are a fan, I’d love to know which song is your favorite. Mine always changes but today it’s “Come Alive.”

This Week’s Fave Decor
The Letter “B”
I am a sucker for items monogrammed with the Letter B – coffee mugs, stationary, wooden B’s. You’ll find a few in my house and most recently this one I purchase on sale at Michael’s. So pretty with reminders of spring. 🙂

This Week’s Fave Snack
Yesterday Brian asked when I was going to make his favorite coconut granola again (it’s been months) so I pulled out my recipe and started cooking. I forgot how good this tastes! Although, I think I’ll have to wait until Saturday to eat it since Friday should be a day of sacrifice. 😉

This Week’s Fave Journal
Every Sacred Sunday Journal
I have been using the Every Sacred Sunday Mass Journal since it came out at Advent. I’ve gotta tell you, it has changed the way I attend Mass on Sundays! I get there a little early to pray and write in the journal about what I’m grateful for and my prayer intentions for the week. I follow along while the readings are being read and underline anything that stands out to me. During the homily I take notes and try to see what God wants to teach me. It’s not that I wasn’t an active participant at Mass before using the journal, but it has brought me into a deeper level or praying and meditating on the readings and promptings of the Holy Spirit. It has truly been spiritually beneficial.
* Note to moms/dads of little ones. You may roll your eyes at the thought of being able to read along or take notes during the homily. You may simply be happy when you make it through Mass with your sanity intact. I remember those days of crying babies, flying cheerios, evil-eyes given by impatient parishioners and being almost in tears wondering why I even bother… but have hope! One day your munchkins will be old enough to sit quietly and pay attention (relatively speaking) and you will have entered a new phase in parenting at Mass. It’s a game changer. So hang in there! You could always use the journal after Mass (or before) to read the words you couldn’t hear because you were wrangling kids or chasing toddlers out in the garden. 😉
Well, that’s it for now! What have you been enjoying this week?
