Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Leprechaun for St Patricks DayMy wish is that it’s completely green and pure gold for you (and that you don’t get pinched)! 🙂

You know, I remember getting dressed in green and going to the St. Patrick’s Day parade as a kid, but we just don’t do that anymore.

Maybe it’s because St. Patty’s has become more about green beer and partying. Maybe it’s because I don’t have any of my Irish ancestors here in the States. Whatever the reason, it’s just not the same as it used to be.

I think it was much more fun for us as kids. Back then we didn’t know about the “drunkfest” side of the holiday. And I’m just not that into spending a day peeing in shades of green! 🙂

As a kid it was about wearing green, coloring your and your dogs fur green, and pinching people who were brave enough to NOT wear green. And while I still wear green, pinch people, and am more than willing to color my pet green for a day, it’s just not the same.

So, for those of you who celebrate by going out to have a few green beers… Cheers! (to you AND your designated driver… hint, hint) 😉

For those of you who have kids who wanna color the family dog or cat green, you may try reminding them that most pets don’t like to take a bath and recommend maybe a green sweater or a green collar with St. Patrick’s Day balloons tied to it might be a better way to go… I doubt you’ll be able to talk them out of coloring the dog but hey, you can give it a shot right?

No matter what, enjoy the day and have a very happy holiday!

Warm regards,


I'm a passionate, down-to-earth gal who spends as much time as possible making fun of myself and the world around me. I'm a big kid with a lot of thoughts that I don't mind sharing AND, I love to teach. Anything. Everything. As long as it's fun.

Warning: I was raised in a VERY sarcastic household so my sense of humor always leans that way. :)

But if I can make you think, make you laugh, or give you a moment to pause... life is good!:D
