Got Green bloghop!
So, I may not be Irish (at least that I know of!) but I could use a little luck 'o the Irish, so I thought I'd jump in Mark Koopman's Bog Hop. Want to join in? Click over here!
My favorite memories from Saint Patrick's Day come from when I was a kid. I must admit, as an adult, the only thing I really do is make sure I'm wearing green :) (Yeah, I know this is kinda pathetic, but what can ya do?) But as a kid, my mom was big into making the day fun for us all. Everything was dyed green. The milk. Our eggs, or whatever was for breakfast. She'd paint little green footprints over the windows. Even our fishtank went completely green (and no, not with algae) one year. She was really, really good at making it fun for us kids, making us think that there really were little leprechauns hanging around our house.
Kind of makes me miss being a kid, just thinking about it!
The other best thing about St. Patrick's Day? Corned beef and potatoes. None of us like cabbage. Ahhh. SO good! I love that is smells so tasty and fills the house with that awesome aroma. This is something I've tried to continue with my husband, but somehow I don't think I'll be finding any corned beef in Spain this year. Sad.
Okay, so what do you do for the green day? Anything fun? Is it a big deal for your family?
