Happy St. Patty's Day!

Top o' the mornin! I'm embracing my new Irish heritage (by marriage). Finally, I've earned the right to wear the claddagh I've had since I was 15. I'm fully in the spirit, except for wearing green. I just wasn't feeling it. I figure buying a green car, having a green couch, and a green living room wall should have me covered for about another 10 years. Plus, I did make these lovely and yummy shamrock cookies and green cuppycakes for the office today:

Last night, I took my Bed Bath & Beyond coupon and our last BB&B coupon and did some shopping. I picked up some new mixing bowls that I've been desperately wanting, huge cookie sheets, new spatulas, and cute sconces that Dan promptly hung for me. I dressed up the master bath, bedroom hall, and an accent wall with them. They were a screaming deal and add a little touch of that homey feel I've been craving.
I don't think we have any plans for St. Patty's Day. We'll probably just drop a couple drops of green food coloring in some Guinness and call it a day. Neither of us are huge fans of going to crowded pubs and then driving home knowing that a lot of people have been drinking heavily. Not fun at all.

What are your St. Patty's Day plans?

I want to eat everything on that plate right now.
I am not Irish, so I don't celebrate this holiday. Unless it's on a weekend and I can go out. Tonight I'll be knocking back a regular beer and watching ANTM. :)

I wish my St. Patty's Day plans included eating those cupcakes and cookies! They look delish...

Right now I'm listening to the sounds of the parade as goes by my window. It's so nice out I may sneak out of here for a while and actually watch some of it.

Nice woman! You make me look bad - I did dress my little Italians in green - they are Irish on my side.

You MADE those?? That looks like stock photography, girl! Good job! I want to also eat all of them. We just got back from Beef o Bradys, which is an irish themed place, it was PACKED. We got most Wednesdays and it isn't nearly as bad as it was tonight! MERCY!

I love your cookies. I wanted to make some green themed food but I ran out of time. I went out to eat at a bar last night. There were lots of people wearing green but I stayed away from the most popular Irish pub as I knew it would be crazy.
