Back to Muh Roots, People.

Hey lovely people!!

So. I did it. I changed my blog look once again. I made a few subtle layout changes, revamped my "About" tab over on the left, and made a new header!

The biggest difference you'll notice here is the title of the blog, which is now: Candid Catholic Living. Those of you who have been followers for awhile will know that it's actually the original title of this blog! So. Why the switch-back?

Honestly, there's no big "Aha" reason at all. It just kind of... felt right. See here's the thing. I had always loved the original title, but when I changed it to Whining and Dining, it was (I realize this now, looking back) mostly just because I didn't like the look of it. I had it in this pretty, scripty font and it looked so... fancy. And let me tell you, dear readers, I'm a lot of things, but fancy just isn't one of them. I'm about as down-to-earth as they come. So my mentality was, I want to change the look of my blog to be more reflective of my personality: just an average, fun-loving, deep in the trenches of mommyhood kind of gal! So the blog name changed along with a lot of other features at that time.

But... I never really loved the title Whining and Dining. Don't get me wrong, I think it was cute for sure, but it wasn't as reflective of me as I felt the original title was. And it always sounded kind of... whiny to me. Haha!

Aaaaaaanyway, it recently dawned on me that I really missed my original blog title. It was so much more me and besides, my url still remained the same, even during the W&D phase.

So, ladies and genties, welcome to my new, old blog: Candid Catholic Living. I hope you enjoy it :)


  1. I did always love the original blog name! I hope you all are doing well! I wish you lived closer haha so we could cook, have play dates and talk catholic stuff together! I will have to email you on a touchy subject I was going to cover and get your take, lets just say if I posted on my blog it would not be pretty, I would love your take on this situation! Haha i will email you with that and also the address of that family...xoxo

  2. Awww I know! We should figure out a virtual playdate via skype or something haha... how funny would that be?! Looking forward to your email! :)
