A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)


Happy St. Patrick's Day!
How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's see...maybe I'll go drink some breakfast.




(That's right, Mr. Bailey's Irish Cream Cup...It is delicious!)  And while we're at it, a traditional Irish breakfast sounds just lovely!  (what?? Chocolate cupcakes with green frosting isn't Irish enough for you???  Did you see the duck at the top of this post???)


Ok! Time to get dressed for the day! (she says, wiping crumbs and frosting from her mouth)  What? Not appropriate attire for a mom?


Don't get your shamrocks in a wad...I'll probably really wear my yoga pants with this top....(Kim, I know you want one of these...)


Now that we're dressed, we can freshen up a bit with our mouth spray just for this occasion!  



Ok family & friends..I know what you're thinking right now...(for good reason!)


I guess ya'll are lucky it's Irish day and I may have a few quiet moments (unless that mouth spray really kicks in good...)

Time to get the kids and head out for some Irish fun activities that I don't feel like doing because all I want to do is eat chocolate and watch rom-com chick flicks   (....not my fault...again, please refer to duck at the top of the post..)



(Is it hot in here?...cause I'm thinking it's really hot in here...can someone turn on the *$%#! air conditioner?!)




(especially this one...)

Oh...sorry...hormones got carried away there for a second.  Oopsy!! ...what I really mean is this...
A gorgeous British fellow stole my heart, you know...sorry Bono, gotta say good-bye this St. Patty's Day...my heart belongs to my British guy:)  (insert bluebirds of happiness, romantic music and fluttering hearts here please)

Time to pack a lunch since we'll be travelin' to Irish dance performances and there's no time to drink eat before we leave!





(Don't worry....Nana's driving...)

Oh! Can't forget my gum! You know me...I stress chew when that stupid duck up there comes to visit...


Well, that's about it! We are off for the last of our Irish dance performances! March Madness is coming to an end!  Let's do a jig to celebrate!

Here's a little St. Patty's day sentiment from me to you...

Myspace Graphics


And from the bottom of my wee drop of Irish heart, I really mean that!  According to my dear Irish friend Pam, a "wee drop is all ya' need!" Here's to you, Pam! Happy St. Pats!

Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!


p.s. No, family members, I have not taken up drinking as a new hobby. (Family members know I don't drink...well, not very often anyway...hee hee hee..) Just having a little fun on St. Patty's Day...cause that dumb duck is about to ruin my next week....which may actually force me into taking up drinking...who the heck knows? Quite frankly, I'm surprised I haven't become a super lush after the week I've had! Love you all!

annie kelleher said…
slainte!!! dont forget a wee drop of whiskey might help with the pms ;)
It's days like these I wish I DID have a drinking problem...

Every year dh and I try to find a cleaver way to "trick" the kids on St pats day...we've done treasure hunts, maps, switching their comforters, and dressing their stuffed animals...

Well this year we switched the furniture in the family room...but all I kept hearing was..."we keep looking for our prize, it's got to be here somewhere".

Ungrateful twits...ugh...I soooo have failed as a parent...wheres my flask?

I'm Irish by association--married an Irish man--but I still get to down my pint of Guinness and eat corned beef and cabbage to my heart's content--happy St. Patty's Day!

My grandmother is Irish, and my mom would always make corn beef and cabbage, and it was disgusting.

My husband read my blog this morning and saw your comment and burst out laughing. He was so tickled he screamed it across the house to me!
Kelly said…
Like Scarlet's father said to her outside Tara, "To anyone with a drop of Irish blood in her, why the land they live on is like their Mother"

Hope the PMS passes! Happy St Patty's day to ya now.
blueviolet said…
I only have a drop of Irish too. Actually my Irish is watered down at that. I'm Scotch-Irish.

Happy St. Pat's day, my wonderful itty bit of Irish friend!
Alexis AKA MOM said…
LOL I so started my day off with an Irish Coffee, what that is suppose to be once a year thing? LOL Guess every morning isn't a good thing?

Bailey's Ice Cream ... YUMMMY!

LOVE it all! Man I'm off to the store to find that ice cream. Jeez girl!

A few drops of Irish or not, you wrote one hilarious post. Best one I have seen all day.

I really think you struck genius with your combination of ice cream and Guiness for lunch. :)

Love your St. Patrick's Day post. If you lived closer I would give you my chandelier. I'm sure it will need a lot of work but it is so cute. I really don't have any room for it. I just couldn't resist that bargain. Have a wonderful day.

Brenda Jean said…
My PMS started, so I have a week of wacked hormones to go, and I'm sure I'll be cheerful and full of whimsy the entire week..IF I can drink the entire time. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA So, I feel your pain. It seems like we just went through this-- I remember your last pms post like it was yesterday. What's up with that?
Claire said…
I sent my husband to my some Baileys for me, so I plan on enjoying the night tonight! I hope you are feeling better soon.
LadyStyx said…

Funny. Happy St Pattys day.

Why do you keep using my photo on your blog? ( The duck one to be precise.) OK ... that was lame and didn't work.

Now I want cupcakes and ice cream!

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it!

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
