St. Patrick: I Love Him.

In case you missed the updates plastered all over Facebook, Twitter, blogcity, the internet, children at your kid's school, coworkers in the next cubicle, or the world in general, today is St. Patrick's Day. You know what that means... Time for me to eat my weight's worth in corned beef and cabbage (and some potato skins for good measure) because clearly this is the only day all year long when I can eat these items. Did I mention I LOoOOoOoOVE this shit???


But while we're on the subject of getting intoxicated off beef products, I'm going to take a quiiiick second to remind you not to be a drunk driver tonight. And when your stupidass friend INSISTS that he's totally fine to drive, but can't remember where he placed his ID and is sporting a shirt soaked in Guinness and/ or a stupid, green and white striped Cat-in-the-Hat style piece of shit on his head, find him a ride home.


MADD paid for this Wreckage on Display and placed in front of a local Irish pub. Apparently, the driver of this car walked away fine, while the driver of the other car was killed. Moral of the story: Don't be an asshole.


Last night, I decided to whip up some mini cupcakes for Pearl's class. Not because I'm Mother Theresa or anything. But more because I just like baking and I LOVE the idea of making baked goods for a kid to share with classmates. Ten 4-year-olds are going to be verrrrry happy today. -At least, in my head they are.



This morning, Pearl was dressed to impress.

A little St. Patrick... A little Cheech N Chong. (re Fashion: I LOVE when they're too young to know better.) I wonder where on earth she sees crazy looking outfits and thinks they're okay to wear out in public...

Happy St. Patricks!


In other nonsense...

I know that I would be happy if you had made those for me. I'm pretty sure ten 4-yr-olds heads are going to explode with glee.

Pearl is adorable, I love her outfit! And those cupcakes look yummy. I'll also be making beef tonight and skipping the booze. Maybe a glass of champeezy. Have a good one!

OK, she is too cute! Keep this picture around to show her in 10 years...she'll love it, I'm sure. ☺ BTW, I love your shirt. Those BB 3/4 sleeves are my fav.

My beef has been cooking all day and the smell is driving me nuts (that wasn't a euphemism). Good advice to the drunky drunkertons. I have a dumb friend who got two DUIs in a row and then they installed one of those alcohol monitor things in her car that you have to blow into before it will start? It wasn't humiliating at all.

MEGS - it wasn't a special homemade recipe or anything, just betty crocker cake and frosting. but i figured, to little eyeballs, sugar is sugar.

TSARITSA - thanks! that outfit was alllllll her. can you believe some kid had the nerve to tell her she wasn't wearing any green. pearl's dad almost punched him in the face.

HANNAH - i know, that picture screams blackmail. :)

ERIN - your opening line wins you the Best Comment award.

SIMONE - well thanks(!), but pearl's not mine. that's the key to staying hot, you know- let someone do all that birthing stuff. :)

Good stuff! Tell Pearl to rock it out and forget anyone who tells her otherwise! Let Charlie Sheen's bravery guide us all.

2 things:
1) I randomly wanted to make fish tacos yesterday, so I went to the store to get cabbage for them and I couldn't find it anywhere. I finally asked where it was and they said they were out because of St. Patrick's Day. Oops. Not a 'holiday' at the top of my consciousness, I guess.

2) I heard on the radio that you should choose a PASS for tonight. They called it a PASS instead of designated driver. A 'Person Appointed to Stay Sober.' Sounds so much more official and glamorous. 'Cuz your airhead friend Lala has never been 'appointed' to anything. Until now. Great job, Lala! Great job.

LOL girlfriend has some STYLE! Love when they start dressing themselves! And the cupcakes are too cute - hope you saved one for yourself! :)
