St. Patrick's Day Fun

March 17th is one of my favorite days of the year. Being Irish, I wear my green proudly and always find a way to eat and drink my way through the holiday! This St. Patrick's Day was a bit different than in years past, there was no green Chicago River in sight, nor did I drink bottomless Appletinis into the wee hours {with a dash of Midori, please!}. This year, was filled with lots of joy, as it was very unseasonably warm {80-something and sunny} and fun, as we hosted a Baby GTG for our classmates from our Mom & Baby class back in the fall.

The morning included a casual get together with our classmates - all within 2-3 weeks of Miss L's birth day, with her being the youngest by about 3 days.

Here are some photos of Miss L sharing her jumperoo with her friends...

We always have fun with Miss C, as she lives nearby making stroller walks very convenient!

Mr. S is 3 days older than Miss L. Perhaps a potential boyfriend!!

With my love for all things green on this day, we had a green menu including:
  • Green Popcorn {Combine oil, sugar, salt and green food coloring in pan, heat and then add popcorn kernels, shake until completely popped} - taste likes Kettle Korn
  • Green Fruit Salad {Kiwi, Green Grapes...and could add honeydew if you wanted!}
  • Pretzels dipped in white chocolate, topped with green sprinkles
  • Guacamole and chips {brought by friends Kelly and Kellie}
  • Green-leafed sugar cookies
  • Lemonade with fresh limes floating
  • Mini cupcakes brought by another mommy

After the Baby GTG, we had some family fun...

Where is Miss L?

Miss L was intrigued by daddy's hat!

She obviously had a fun day, her naptime was lengthy and sound. We noticed on our monitor that she was using the bumper as a pillow...
How stinkin cute is this??

Our day was complete with a special Irish dinner with friends - Irish soda bread, whiskey butter, beef brisket, potatoes and more! Here is a photo of us girls...

Wow, what a fun day! Happy Saint Patrick's Day 2012!
