When Irish Eyes are Smiling

A Happy St. Patrick's Day to all! I am not one bit Irish but I've always loved this day. From the time I was a child I would wish we were Irish and I would always dress in green and my mother would paint shamrocks on my face (thanks for indulging me Mom!). Today I will be wearing my wonderful glittery brooch made from Vanessa's directions and Jeff and I will have our family over tonight for corned beef and cabbage, and Irish soda bread (incidentally, I have heard from several people that the Irish don't eat corned beef and cabbage - any Irish readers that can comment on this? Regardless, I still love it!).
Reminder to leave a comment on my blogaversary post to be entered in my giveaway.


Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day and a very happy birthday to Megan and Juli!

That's so funny...we did the same growing up! My mom did the whole nine yards...green milk, applesauce, jello, etc. Anything green!! We aren't a bit of Irish either!! Have a Happy St. Patty's Day!!

Happy St Pats! Have fun with your corned beef and cabbage dinner. I'm thinking about going out for Ruebens- I don't know if they're really Irish, but I think of them as St Paddy's day food.
