What I Wore Sunday: What I Read Sunday

I rarely wear jewelry, but my sister saw my husband taking a picture of me to link up with Fine Linen and Purple’s What I Wore Sunday and decided that I needed to wear her pearl necklace. Literally, a necklace with one humongous fake pearl. Apparently she ordered it online, expecting it to be small and delicate.

They then decided to attempt to pose me, resulting in much laughter.


I am holding a copy of Following Christ in a Consumer Society, because it is my book for today. I will probably read it while my husband reorganizes the bookshelves. It is my fault that they are messy, but I cannot fix them myself because we have very different ways of organizing books, and this is one of the many only spaces where I let him have things his way.

Ehem. Moving on!

I bought the book (used, of course! ;-)) for my husband a year or two ago because it was on his wish list (alas, so consumerish), but never read it for myself.

Earlier this week I saw a tweet from Jonathan Sullivan:

And realized that now would be the perfect time to kick myself and actually read the book. I expect that I may post more about it later. You can read the first chapter here if you like.

What are you reading today?

For Smirks , , , ,


  1. How fun with the necklace!!! I am reading “Those we love most” by Lee Woodruff AND….(b/c I can never just read ONE book at a time…it’s a problem, I know)…Screwtape Letters by C.S.Lewis.

  2. Thanks for participating with us again. I love sweater dresses! So comfy!

  3. A sweater dress. Another thing I’ve never had! Methinks I’m to much a creature of habit…

    And I kind of love the enormous fake pearl. Is that okay?

  4. Sarah B.

    I LOVE your sweater dress. It’s very cute, and I love that look with the black flats.

    I’ve had that book on my list for a while, so I’d love to know what you think of it!

  5. I love the sweater dress– looks comfy & warm, yet stylish. And I like the big pearl too!

    I’ll have to check out the book!

  6. Such a cute sweater dress!
    And, um, a little embarrassed to say re-reading Cheaper by the Dozen, which I read in 9th grade. I’ll have to look into your book. Sounds like a great Year of the Faith read!

  7. Love the sweater dress! I own an unhealthy amount of them, and then rendered them useless for the near future by having my Nursling :-)

    • This is my conundrum, too! I want one so badly (and especially love this one here), but I can’t figure out how to nurse in it without stripping down naked. Sigh.

  8. I just finished organizing my book shelves. What a job…The outfit is cute–your laugh makes it. Way to have some fun!

  9. Thanks for the shout out! When we lived in St. Louis my wife and I were members of the College Church at Saint Louis University; it was always a treat when Fr. Kavanaugh would preside and preach.

    And just so I don’t feel left out: I like the color of your dress and I’ve started reading Holiness for Everyone: The Practical Spirituality of St. Josemaria Escriva by Eric Sammons.

  10. OK!! Girl, we were Sunday Twins! HA!! You should see my picture. I’m just missing that necklace!

    I am so glad I joined this meme….it is giving me great help!! Excited!

    Oh golly. You know what? I totally saw this blog post before and I didn’t even put two and two together that it was you and not some random person I was reading about.

  12. So how is the book? Will you be writing a review for us…please??
