I was talking with a girlfriend about St.Patrick's Day recently and she told me she never made a fuss about wearing green or had even heard about getting "pinched" until she was an adult working in an office. SAY WHAAAA??? I can remember my mom putting green ribbons in my hair, having special St.Patty's pins to wear, even green shoe laces one year. Was that just me and my family? I can remember even in High School my mom making sure I had something green to wear. I LOVE St.Patty's Day. Like super duper LOVE it.
Though he didn't grow up celebrating it he loves celebrating it with me. Making sure to wear something green, eating all the yummy fatty eats and most of all he loves hosting St.Patty's parties. I swear it's the only party he actually "enjoys" throwing because like he said, "There's nothing more to it than yummy food and great company!"
here, here AND here.
This year is no different. We are having yet another get together to celebrate this holiday and I can't wait. The cookie dough truffles you see pictured I made today and will start on the rest of the sweets tomorrow.
My new Anthropologie knock-off cake stand you are all drooling over was purchased at the Penelope Lane Boutique last weekend from
(pssst...go check her out, you will love the the things she creates and refurbishes!)
The Subway art I created last night in Photoshop and printed it at Walgreens with a free coupon. Slapped that bad boy in a frame I had laying around and I just made myself a free-fitty-free piece of St.Patty Art!
So how about you? Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Any fun traditions or recipes I should know about?
