Weekend Vibes, Edition No. 157: Easter Outfits for My Children + Prayer in Uncertain Times.

My Latest Snag: Easter Outfits for Mini and Micro.

I have been loosely shopping for mini and micro for Easter over the last few weeks, but I finally settled on this short set for micro (which he’ll wear with knee socks and saddle shoes) and a floral Luli & Me dress for mini (which she’ll wear with knee socks and probably these adorable Gap Mary Janes).

P.S. Also snagged this precious white sun set for micro marked down to $36 from $100!

P.P.S. I ordered these Easter jammies for micro already. Mini already owns a gingham Petite Plume nightie so I might just put her in that, but how sweet is this set?!

P.P.P.S. I’m dying over the tabletop stylings of Alice Neylor-Leyland (seen above). Would adore to add these placemats to my Easter table!

#Turbothot: Prayer in Uncertain Times.

This is a wild and scary time for everyone, and the only thing I have to offer is the suggestion of praying in addition to whatever you and your family have decided to do with regards to keeping yourself safe. (And on that latter point — I have found it imperative and centering to discuss what Mr. Magpie and I hear and learn about the coronavirus over the course of many, many nights of “STPs” to download, compare notes, and continue to evaluate our plan as a family. I am reticent to share our personal plan because there is so much information swirling around and things continue to change and I don’t want to add any additional stress or “…but should I do that, too?” to your already very full mind.)

Both in the context of COVID-19 and other challenges you may be facing, can I suggest you consider praying a novena? I recently bought this inexpensive booklet, which has various novenas (i.e., prayers you say every day for 9 consecutive days) for different circumstances, including pregnancy, cancer, and lost things (St. Anthony!). There are many that are applicable to this uncertain and confusing time.

Sending love to everyone.

  1. Ha — I think one in five Cobble Hill moms has that Clare V. I like them, though they kind of have an IKEA-but-fashion vibe. I’m not a prayer (yet), but I’ve found it comforting to understand the math behind the spread. Seeing that China got their r nought (transmission rate/person) down to .24 from 3 was VERY comforting, though we’re not set up for the industrialized diagnostic approach they were able to marshal. Stay safe!

    1. Yes – take comfort wherever you can find it!! In numbers, in prayers, in the small golden moments at home with your children, etc…xx

  2. I also love praymorenovenas.com for finding a novena that speaks to whatever you are praying for. I have found this situation incredibly stressful, but feel extra grateful for health and family this weekend. Thank you for being such a bright light in these crazy times!

    1. Thanks for that link!! Will definitely be using it. And thanks for writing in. Praying for calm and health…
