Tales from the sick bed, and Advent 2013 Veil Project details!

It wasn't exactly easy to think of a way to combine the two topics in the title of this post, so I didn't even try to be creative. I'm sick. Last night, I felt a bit "off", but thought it was just something I ate. Don't you love these details? But THEN, nighttime struck.

I fell asleep, feeling quite miserable, but awoke an hour later achey, shivering, and uncomfortable. Much tossing and turning commenced. I threw in some unhappy moaning sounds, hoping to wake Mike so that he could come to my aid.

Mike: *contented deep breathing*

Eventually, I "accidentally" bumped into him during a particularly spirited roll over.

"Sweetie, are you all right?"

"I think I'm coming down with something."

"Can I do anything for you?"

"I'm really cold."


*Mike heads downstairs*

*Mike returns 60 seconds later*

"I turned up the heat!"

See, let this be a lesson to us all. Your spouse and yourself may be one in the sacrament of marriage, but he/she cannot read your mind. I was hoping for an ibuprofen. This time, I told him flat out.

"Oh. Why didn't you just say that?"

Why indeed.

This morning, I'm still not 100%, but I am able to be up and around, and for that I am grateful.

I really wanted to put out a quick post before my Thanksgiving weekend blogging hiatus about the Advent veiling linkup that I'm hosting come Monday. Sometime Monday morning or afternoon, you'll see the official post with linkup. The linkup will stay open for all of Advent, until Christmas, so feel free to write a post about your experience veiling during Advent at any point during the season. I will sticky the post in the tab at the top of this blog noting as such. I just wanted to remind everyone that this was coming in case you wanted to break out your hat or scarf (or your covering of choice!) come Sunday, since that is the First Sunday of Advent. Exciting!

Also, as a part of the linkup excitement, throughout the season we have *5* veil vendors who are offering giveaways, so make sure to enter! First up is going to be Michelle at Liturgical Time. Check her blog on Sunday December 1st to catch the first day to enter her giveaway! Her giveaway will only run until December 4th, so do not delay! She will be offering a gorgeous purple veil from her shop.

After Michelle, we will have:

Designs by Birgit

Silver Hill Treasures

Veils by Lily

Peter's Bride

Details on each giveaway will be posted as Advent progresses. Cristina and Emily will also be posting about the giveaways and linking up their blogs as part of the project. Watch for my Tweets as well for reminders (@CatholicTiffany).

All right, I'm starting to feel dizzy again so time to cut this short. :-\ You'll see a Catholic Book Club post from me tomorrow, and then I'll talk to you all on Monday! I hope that each and every one of you has a smashing Thanksgiving with your family. God bless you!


  1. Tiffany...I pray you are feeling much better...especially with Thanksgiving approaching.

    We can linkup up on a weekly basis or should it be one post written on our experience? I am not sure how I am approaching it yet.


    1. That made no sense at all...I meant is it better to do one post or can we do weekly ones?

    2. It's really up to you. Usually, people do one post per linkup, but I don't mind at all if you do more!

  2. I hope by now you feel great.
    Bless your heart.
    I'm baking up a storm here…
    Happy Thanksgiving.
