Party Time

March 17, 2012

Every year my fun neighbor Jessie hosts a fantastic St. Patricks Day breakfast.  She goes all out.  Green everything!  This year she had at least 50 people shoehorned into her small house all wearing green, eating green and just enjoying being together.  It’s one of my favorite traditions we’ve adopted since living here.

St. Patty's mosiac

I make green baking powder biscuits every year.  But this year Creamie and I got to go all matchy matchy in striped tights.  Hers are from her Halloween costume, and mine?  Well mine are just for fun.  Happy St. Patricks Day!  Hope you are doing something fun.

PS- Thanks for your nice comments about my cut.  My finger is getting better.  The doc decided (at a lot of urging from me) to leave the stitches in a few more days.  I’m glad he agreed with me.  The last two days it has looked and felt a LOT better.  I hope to be back to my regular (almost) self soon.

    That is such an awesome tradition! I used to throw parties just for fun. I wonder what happened to me. Anyway, you and Creamie are awesome in the matching stripey tights! Love it! Also, she is so adorable eating all that green food. What a fun party.

    St. Patrick’s Day is a really fun holiday! I love to be out and about and seen green en masse. I kind of wish it were on a Sunday this year (as we’ll be leaping over it next year). Wouldn’t it be cool to see an entire congregation in green. I wonder how many different kinds of green ties there are?

    Glad you’re feeling better.

    How cool! We have some Irish neighbors a couple of doors down; I’m going to have to convince them to host a gig like this. Though, I’ve seen some of the authentic Irish food they eat (they get it shipped to Texas!) and it looks preeeeety gross. We’ll have figure that part out. 🙂

      Yes, no tradition Irish food allowed! Only delicious highly artificially colored foods should be in attendance. 🙂 it really is such a great party. When St. Pat’s day falls on a weekday she starts at like 7 am so all the working people can come with their families before they head to work. So much fun!
