Saint Saturday: St. Bridget

(Taken from American Catholic )

St. Bridget had visions of Christ crucified from the age of seven. This lead to her acts of charity rather than spiritual favors. She lived her married life in the court of the Swedish king Magnus II. After her husband's death, with whom she had eight children (one of which became St. Catherine of Sweden), she lived a strict life. Bridget tried to influence the king, but though she did not completely reform him, he did give her land to found a monastery for men and women. She died in 1373 and was named co-patroness of Europe in 1999. St. Bridget, pray for us!

Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

It's time for A&A again!


I was checking out at the grocery store while my dad ran to the back of the store to get something, but there was wine in the cart for my mom's cooking. Since you have to present an ID for alcohol, I had to sit there until one of my parents got back. Embarrassing.

Having a little brother who yells out potty words all the time. In front of non-family members.

Since my hair's poofy and curly, I get asked a lot, "Did you just wake up?" Argh.


I finished my first year of high school with all A's!!

I got a lot of babysitting jobs this summer.

My aunt and second cousin are coming to town this weekend.

Awkward and Awesome Thursday! (a day late)

I completely forgot it was my turn to do A&A Thursday! Here it is:


I was trying to play a new piano piece, but playing REALLY badly, when the repair guy walked in. So much for impressing people with my piano skills.

While babysitting, I bent down to pick something up, and as I stood up, I whacked my head on the corner of the counter. The little girl looked at me and then burst out laughing.

I fell into the water while sitting on a float and my swim shorts slid down my legs a lot (I had a bathing suit on underneath thankfully). A friend ours, an adult guy, looked away, thinking I had lost my bathing suit bottoms, and asked, "Are you dressed?" (I'm cringing even now in case you can't see it)


I'm going to see my other cousins tomorrow!!!!

While I'm with them, we're going to see the midnight premier of the new Harry Potter movie!

My mom and I got to go out to lunch by ourselves (that never happens with 6 other kids in the house)

Saint Saturday

(taken from Saints: A Year in Faith and Art by Rosa Giorgi and American Catholic)
This coming week, on the 4th of July, is the feast of St. Elizabeth of Portugal. Daughter of King Peter III of Aragon, she married Denis, king of Portugal, at the young age of 12. As queen, she befriended the sick, poor, pilgrims and strangers. She reconciled her husband with her rebellious son, Alfonso, who had led a revolt against him. Despite her husbands continuous infidelities, she remained patient and devoted to him. When King Denis died, she joined a Franciscan convent and spend he rest of her life there. She is normally depicted in royal garb holding an olive branch. The name Elizabeth is Hebrew and means "God is abundance."

And now for a little riddle! This week is the feast day of a saint who's become quite famous despite her relatively short life. (no cheating or googling the answer!)
1. She is a martyr
2. She is depicted holding lilies

Ok, no more clues, or else it'll be too easy. Leave a comment with the answer if you think you know it. Don't forget our giveaway!

Summer time

 Right now I'm doing this amazing, incredible, so-much-fun, camp- Junior lifeguards. Jgs for short. It's four weeks long (that is why I asked Audrey to do my A&A last week) It's on the beach: push-ups, sit-ups, running, swimming (in the ocean) learning about rip currents, "saving" our "drowning" friends, totally fun.  Each week we went on a field trip to a different beach to do something new and exciting. snorkeling- i sat on a paddle board with leslie and dana and we stuck our faces in the water while max and nic pushed us around, :P
surfing- I CAUGHT A WAVE AND STOOD UP!!! so stinkin' fun!! took a lot of practice and some looking very very VERY stupid
push-ups- this isn't very interesting but i and so proud of myself because at the beginning of this camp I could barely do 10 in a row now I can do 20.
running- at the begining of JGs we did what we call a "condo run"  its probably a little more then a mile.  We were all dying during the run and we walked quite a bit of it (don't judge! I'm a terrible runner) Now when we do a condo run, we can run the entire way and not die.
In the 3rd week, there was a competition between several different JG teams.  There were probably 1000 kids and in the Run Swim Run, I placed 24th.  In the Distance swim i got 16th.  And best of all...I was chosen for the fastest swim relay!  My relay team got 1st place!  Overall in the competition, my team got 3rd place!

I met this girl who I ate my first piece of birthday cake with! We knew each other since before we were born(well...our parents knew each other) and when I was little my family moved for a few years then moved back  then we re-met.  so. weird.
