Friday and Saturday of this weekend were the annual Italian Festival hosted by our parish. It was a great success as far as I could tell, from the insanity that was the kitchen and basement of the church all weekend.
They were selling all sorts of delicious food from meatballs to fettuccine to hand-made cannoli. I tried almost everything and it was all fabulous. Especially the cannoli.
However, the busy Friday and Saturday meant that Sunday morning was a bit more of a struggle than usual. And of course we had a full day of plans to celebrate Father’s Day. But hey, I survived! And here’s what I wore!
Dress: Old Navy
Shoes: Charlotte Russe
Necklace: Charlotte Russe
Earrings: Lia Sophia
Answer Me This
1. What’s something you intended to do today, but didn’t?
I hoped to have a chance to write some more wedding thank you notes. It hasn’t even been a month yet, so I’m still okay, right? Right?
2. What’s your favorite grilling recipe?
One I don’t have to cook? I’m not much of a griller. I don’t mind things that have been grilled, but it’s not my preferred method of cooking.
3. What movie did you see most recently?
The Fault in Our Stars. I read the book as well and I think I like it better as a book. Overall, the story is touching and sad, but to me it’s just depressing because of the lack of belief in a higher power. To me, it perfectly represents the futility that is life without God.
However, I am proud to say that the author, John Green, lives in my beloved hometown of Indianapolis which is also where the movie is set.
4. Would you say your tendency is to over or under react to medical situations?
I’m probably an under-reactor. But I’ve not been in enough serious medical situations to really know.
5. Do you squeeze the toothpaste tube or roll it?
I squeeze it. But neatly.
6. What are you doing for Father’s Day?
After Mass, we went with Branden’s family to Monical’s Pizza, his dad’s chosen restaurant, and afterward went to my aunt’s house to visit with my dad’s side of the family.
