Faith and Beggorah!

Here I am looking all St. Patrick's Day-ish. Working in Children's Services means that it is sort of nice to observe each and every holiday that comes around if at all possible. Today it was easy enough to wear green (note the fabulous shamrock necklace included in my ensemble!) and to make sure to notice the kids also wearing their green. My kind of holiday, actually. I have some Irish blood in me somewhere, mixed in with my other mutt blood. My coloring is sort of Irish-y. Not a huge cornbeef and cabbage affecionado. I might have some green beer or a wee bit o' whisky if pressed. And...I guess that's all I have to say about that! Huh.

I wore blue jeans, blue and white Vans shoes, dark gray shirt and a black hoodie. I'm German and Polish and I'm not Irish on St. patrick's Day.

I like this holiday and I love your necklace! :) Always have to wear some green for the holiday, because I'm mostly Irish with some German, English and probably Scottish mixed in.

AlienCG: I guess you haven't heard...everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

MrsBHW: I would have had to pinch you!

Tara: Thank you! We must have a similar pedigree :-)

Black and maroon. I am Kraut and Pollock.

Corned beef scares me some...I eat it once in a great while. I used to work around the stuff for 8 years. Needless to say, the smell of the stuff evokes bad memories.

Evil-E: As I told your bro, everyone gets to be Irish one day per year. Erin go bragh!
I think corned beef is a little scary too, but I don't know why... haha!

I'm Irish and I wore green. I don't always, but since I was going out to celebrate, I figured I'd better.

Churlita: It looked like you had a great time.
I celebrate the smallest of holidays. It is the hazard of working with kids I think.
