Honorary Irish

I think we can all agree that whether or not you have Celtic blood running through your veins, everyone is a wee bit Irish come St. Patrick's Day.

Amaya and I included.

The days of green beer, shots of whiskey and decking myself out in all things green have come and gone. Those weekend shenanigans of boozing and debauchery have been replaced with green tinted cupcakes and Lucky Charm marshmallow counting games. It has most definitely become a more tame holiday than that of my youth.

And you know what...?
I don't really mind.

While the fresh to bar scene kids are at home nursing their hangovers with unlimited Gatorade and Advil, I am up at the crack of dawn raring to get dressed and hit up a kiddie consignment shop sale, and I'm cool with that. To be perfectly honest, I'm freaking pumped and have been following their FB page for weeks now.

To some that may be lame, but when your company is two crazy toddlers, you need all the functioning senses and sanity you can muster. And with these two crazies, this is all the Jameson and itty bitty Irish I need.

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day at my sisters with Irish nephews Jameson and Gavin and watched the kids pretend play many games, while Mommy demolished a couple of those magically delicious cupcakes. Our Irish friends would be disappointed in us, but Amaya and I ended up passing out at 8 o'clock.

We're a bunch of pure party animals over here. 

We hope no one got a pinch yesterday and enjoyed all the green and Irish festivities there was to offer. 

May love and laughter light your days 
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours
Wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world 
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons,
bring the best to you and yours.
