Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I hope everyone out there has the time to sip on a delicious Irish brew - hopefully of the Guinness variety.....if not at least a Bud Light dyed green like we had last night! That went deliciously with our corned beef and cabbage (er...brussel sprouts). We had to celebrate early because Pat as of 7;30AM is on his way to Vegas for his (5th? 6th?) annual March Madness trip with his brother, Mike.

This photo is of my delicious green velvet cake balls along side a sweet little treat bucket from our playgroup at Laura's house yesterday. I'm quite enamored with both (although the cake balls are almost gone). The little bucket just makes me happy!

I kind of went overboard for St. Patrick's Day this year.....its only 8AM , Lola is in "Baby's 1st St. Patrick's Day" jammies, and Liam and I already have Shamrock tatoos on our hands, green necklaces and our green shirts on - oh and don't forget the shamrock sticker on our faces! As you can see in the photo, my table cloth and wall decor is quite festive as well. The color green just makes me just a wee bit happy.

So happy, in fact, that it made me chuckle when all my green food consumption yesterday left us both with (in the words of Pat) "quite festive poop" this morning. HA!
