I am loving this Advent playlist. Because I am a Spotify noob, I went and bought all the songs on iTunes, and I couldn't always find the exact ones. Some alternate versions that I am really liking are the The Barra MacNeils version of O' Come Divine Messiah, very Irish, Sting's Gabriel's Message, and People Look East by Al Petteway & Amy White, lovely guitar.
I'm going to order that Advent at Ephesus cd from the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, and I'm probably going to order copies for the 'rents for Christmas so step off, siblings! But as the Chef recommended, I'm going to order from the Sisters' website, not some mega-store.
One more week until HOBBITSES! Then I will have to stop using them as one of seven quick takes every.single.week.

I bought the Snowflake Card Holder from Pottery Barn, and it is working out quite nicely. Sure beats the basket of cards that got dumped out interminable times. You can see more of my pathetic attempts at photog on the Twitter and the Instagram. See the cute little pink buttons in my sidebar for more info. Also, I am really liking the #adventphotoaday on the Twitter. Great idea, Beth Anne!
Did you miss my giveaway post on Wednesday? Then why didn't you enter? Don't need a diaper cake? If you win, you could always donate the gift certificate or a diaper cake to your local crisis pregnancy center. These diaper cakes are seriously cute. All you have to do to enter is comment here before next Friday. Easy, peasy.

I'd like to ask everyone to say a prayer for childless couples this Advent. I think Christmas is especially hard for folks who want nothing more than stockings hung by the chimney with care, whose hearts are wide open, but whose arms are empty. Just offer up a stinky diaper, or a middle of the night hazmat event for the people who would love to be in your shoes.
Thank you. That is all.
Go see Jen for more fun that is funny.
