{Today's Letters: Happy St. Patrick's Day!}

Thursday, March 17, 2011


Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, yesterday you rolled down your window at a stop light and started clapping at a flock of birds. This A) made me slide into the floorboards of our car from embarrassment B) convince me you should be bff's with Drum from Steal Magnolias C) start humming "Blackbird singing in the dead of night" or D) all of the above. Dear Spring, seeing signs of you has been nothing short of refreshing. You're like running through a gigantic sheet of fabric softener. Dear Ireland, fist pumps for giving us Damien Rice, Van Morrison, Glen Hansard, U2, Lisa Hannigan, C.S. Lewis, and Frank McCourt. Excited to celebrate you today. Dear Husband, love you more than corned beef and cabbage, bangers and mash, and green Guinness. Over and out.

Do you have any St. Patrick's Day plans or traditions?

Also, did you read our important announcement yesterday? {MR340 Special Update!}

We don't have any St Patricks Day traditions - other than celebrating my friend's birthday (she's 25 today! Woot!)

Steel Magnolias is sooo sad :( My A Level class did the stage production and reduced 2 of the scariest teachers in our school to tears - oops

I don't have any St. Patrick's day plans. Going to enjoy the day, and this gorgeous weather!

And maybe go get a Shamrock Shake! :)

*ten awesome gold stars for mentioning* "Blackbird singing in the dead of night", Glen Hansard, C.S. Lewis, and Frank McCourt (Angela's Ashes is an all time favorite).

We started one this year with our 3 year old son, we build a Leprechaun trap last night and bait it with shinny pennies, we woke up this morning and that tricky Leprechaun had escaped the trap, messed up the whole living room throwing pillows and toys all over the place and peed (green pee mind you) in our toilet!!! Our son was beside himself in disbelief! But the Leprechaun did drop some chocolate wrapped in shinny foil (rolos)

at our staff meeting on Tuesday the Pastor's wife made corn beef + cabbage with potatoes and pumpernickel bread for lunch. It was SO GOOD!

Em, I know you love Garden & Gun. I saw a groupon.com deal for a $10 1 year subscription. Just wanted to pass along the find.

SInce the kids were little I've decorated the table with irish beanie babies, a little green gift and served Lucky Charms cereal for breakfast. My daughter is a way at college but my son is 16 and still loves it.

We listen to a whole lot of Gaelic Storm and eat a whole lot of green food. Junior and I met the hubs for a picnic lunch in the park with turkey wraps on spinach/herb tortillas, kiwi, green grapes, celery, pistachio salad, pistachio pudding bread (which, of course, is green) and last but not least, green shamrock cookies that junior and I made the day before. It is SOO MUCH fun! I started this last year when Jr. was 3 and he totally got into it this year. :)
