Let's get this party started!

Today is my sweet husband's birthday and I wanted to celebrate this wonderful man and his special day with a little fun. We are doing some serious book shelf purging around here trying to condense 5 bookcases down to 3 and last night, surrounded by stacks and stacks of treasures, I found two copies of Helen McLoughlin's My Nameday: Come for Dessert. Now you can find the entire text of this book over at the EWTN online library but, if you are like me and love the feel of a weathered, well-loved text flitting through your fingers then you're in luck!

*If you want to play, all you have to do is guess my husband's confirmation name saint and I will send you the extra copy. I will keep the contest open until Monday at high noon (Texas time). If there are multiple correct answers, I will put those names in a hat and choose a winner. If there are no correct answers by Monday afternoon, I will offer a hint and the first person to answer correctly wins the prize.

*Sorry, family members...you can't play! You can, however, borrow the copy I'm keeping anytime you want.

Have a great weekend! We are off celebrating! : )

    This is really just a shot in the dark, but I'm going to guess that Anthony is his Confirmation name.

    Even though someone already guessed it, I'll go with Joseph, since that's my hubby's confirmation name. :)
