Little Happies -- A Photo of Me as a Youngster, Special Emails, and an Application

Well, hello there! And welcome back to Little Happies, the happiest little link-up this side of the universe, where we all share our small joys from the past week. Won't you join us? :)

Before I start, I must mention that while my biggest dream has finally come true, that doesn't mean I have no need for Little Happies anymore. I promise you, that while I'm happy as a clam over our pregnancy, I also still have my daily ups and downs and need to be sure I'm focusing on the little positives often. So, without further ado, here are those little positives from my past week...


My mom sent me a few pics of me as a youngster! She was going through some old files and stumbled upon the pics and I just thought this one was too cute not to share.

I'm on the left, btw. And my sister, Lauren, is on the right.

Look at that bright red hair!! And those extra cheery smiles.

There's just something so fun about looking at pics of peeps as babies. Like, "Awww, look at all that cuteness I used to have!"


I love waking up to three very special emails every morning...

Blessed is She reflections on the daily readings (even though I really do think they based their name off of my blog name... NAME COPIERS),

Novenas from Pray More Novenas,

and a short gospel reading from Gospels in a Year.

I've only started doing all three of these things in the past few months, but it's a great way to start my morning, and I don't even need to leave the comfort of my bed to read them! (Thank you, cell phone.)  I love waking up to all three and enjoy such a positive, prayer- and gospel-centered start to my day.


John applied for the job in Johnson City, TN this past week!!!!! We're still waiting to hear back and that could take a week or two. But even though there's not much to celebrate at this point, just the process of applying is so exciting! We get to daydream now about what life would be like on the other side of TN. And with family only a few miles away! And buying a house! And making new friends! And all the fun things that come with moving! Eeeee!!

Have a blessed and happy week, friends! <3


  1. That job sounds like a dream for you guys! Here's to hoping it all works out...Love the pic. adorable.

    1. Thanks, girl! I hope and pray it all works out too. :) And looking back on baby pics is always fun, right? :)

  2. The baby pic is so cute! And I've already got the other two, but now I'm signed up for Gospels in a Year too! Good luck with the job!

    1. Thanks, Tomato! I hope you like Gospels in a Year! It's such an easy way to incorporate reading the Bible into everyday life. :)

  3. I hope the job works out!
    I just signed up for the blessed is she devotions. The email to confirm my subscription went to my promotions folder... Hopefully the daily emails don't do that? I'll have to try to remember to check my promotions folder tomorrow morning...

    1. I've had that problem with some email subscriptions and I finally learned how to move them. On a PC its right click the email-> however over move to tab-> select primary (or whatever you want). Then there's a yellow box at the top, click yes to do the same for future messages:).

    2. Katie - I hope you're getting Blessed is She devotions in your inbox every day now! If so, what do you think?

      Tomato - Thanks for the help! I would have had no idea how to fix the promotions folder problem.

    3. So far so good :) Its nice to remember to read the Mass readings every day, since I'm not getting to daily Mass lately!

      And I did get it to work--thanks!
