Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Okay, so I didn't wear any green today, but I do like St. Patty's Day. I am of Irish decent on my mom's side. Not Potato Famine Irish, but Revolutionary War Irish. So the whole "Kiss me I'm Irish" thing really applies to me. St. Patrick's Day is the one day a year when everyone who isn't Irish wishes they were. So it's the one day a year when people want to be me! I love it! I don't drink (even if I wasn't Mormon, the Celiac Disease would keep me away from any malt beverages), and I don't like corned beef and cabbage. So it is a minor holiday, but I am proud of my heritage. It's kind of nice when so many other people appreciate it too.

Umm...I'm kind of disappointed that, as a person of Irish descent, you think corned beef and cabbage is the only way to go. Shepherd's Pie, HELLO!! I grew up on that stuff, lol.

I'm just glad it's the one day a year when my red hair, pale skin and massive amounts of freckles are celebrated!
