Happy P(Addy)'s Day!

On this day every year, I really miss my maiden name.  It is a classic Irish name; and, without it, St. Patrick's Day just isn't the same.  Luckily (and I use that term very loosely), I still have the freckles and pale skin to attest to my Irish heritage.  :)
We take St. Patrick's Day very seriously in my "clan."  Growing up, we took family pictures in green Izod shirts on this day, the same way most families do for Christmas.  I wouldn't be caught dead NOT wearing green; and, even this non-beer drinking gal, has been known to toast a green beer or two. (Oh, and I can't forget the annual "potatoes or green" potluck at our church every year.  I think I cried when that tradition ended.)

I don't know what we will do tonight - Shepherd's Pie and green milk at home maybe - but... we have another VERY important occassion to celebrate as well...


Here's the lucky little birthday girl all decked out to celebrate!  (Doesn't she just look so happy?!)

I can't believe my sweet little furball is all grown up!! :)

Our first baby and my only girl.  It seems like just yesterday that we went to pick her up after I "tricked" Jeff into thinking we were only looking.  :) 

So... obviously, there's a lot to celebrate tonight!  What are you doing?


  1. I'm in love with your dog's puppy picture, and of course her festive birthday attire.

  2. Love this post! I have the pale skin and an Irish first name to prove my heritage. I had more freckles as a kid than I do now, though. And no, I wouldn't be caught dead not wearing green today either. HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!
