celebrated


The day of green-wearing has past... and today I wore pink, even though it is not April yet. I suppose we made the most of the St. Patty's Day celebration; we dragged it on for days! The Parade on Saturday... corned beef and cabbage on Tuesday... and Reuben's last night. And we snacked in between meals! Camden & I got crafty in the kitchen... and it was fun to have a helper. I saw the pretzel idea on someone's blog (I wish I knew where!) and it was easy enough to grab the necessary items as I was running through the grocery store to pick up yet another prescription. And these silly Peeps? That came about when McDonald's was out of Shamrock shakes. On St. Patrick's Day? A crime! So I dreamed up these Peeps... and Cam and I assembled them, best we could. His smile was priceless.



Eric was the best husband ever (again!) and had a steaming loaf of Michelle's Chocolate Chip Irish Soda Bread baking when I got home from work... delicious! And after a snack, or two... we shared dinner with friends. Everyone's eyes were smiling... happy to be relaxing and laughing. And at the end of the night, because it is tradition, we lifted these oh-so-sentimental glasses in a toast... to St. Patrick's Day.

So, until next year... keep the rainbows wrapped around your hearts and shamrocks under your feet!

Your decorations are pretty cool. Those pretzel shamrocks are very clever. What's in the middle holding them together??

Happy (belated) St. Paddy's Day! I'm hoping to find some brisket marked down at the grocery store tomorrow. :<)---I'm a true Scottsman!!

I love how you make each and every holiday a special day. I mean, who else celebrates May day and Cinco De mayo? (mayo/Miyo??)
Love the pretzels and the peeps.
Eric made bread? I am smitten.
