Happy St Patrick’s Day To Ya

I made my famous Guinness Shepherds pie, But I will post about it another time.

I just want to wish you all a Happy St Patrick’s day. I hope you all are wearing green to prevent the pinching! I always have on green 365 days a year. I have a Shamrock tattoo lurking somewhere on my body to celebrate my Irish-ness.

I am sad to sad I will not be partaking in the Irish festivities today. Our whole family, even my husbands 80 year old Grandma(VERY IRISH) usually go to the local Irish Pub at like 10 am and proceed to get silly drunk. Drinking beer from 10 am till oh about 4 will get you pretty toasted.

It is always a great day. But with this damn recession, I don’t feel like spending $300+ on beer that I am just going to pee out. So I will stay home sulking, wishing I was drunk(keep in mind, I am not a drinker, I only drink a few times a year, but boy when I do, there are stories to be told, most of which I don’t recall!!!!)

Soooooo, someone have a beer on me and do something you WILL regret the next morning, will ya?
Oh, and One more day for my GIVEAWAY

    Girlfriend, buy yourself a 6 pack! You could even go college style with something really cheap, like natty light. Although, that might cause for even more regrets in the morning!

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day. I won’t be hitting the bars either, hanging out at home with my kids is more fun these days.

    The almond joy bark down below looks AMAZING!

    Happy St Pattys right back at ya. We need to drink the beer to help the family owned bar businesses of America. Many beers. We must go bar to bar to help them all.

  15. 15

    So I picked up the beer and we are having our celebration at home.

    No reason not to party?!

    This post cracked me up. Literally. Other than sending your beer down the toilet (eventually), which is darned observant by the way…I kept thinking, “$300 on beer? Holy cow…that’s A LOT of rounds!”

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you, and thanks for the giggle. It was fun!

  17. 17

    Haha, I hear you. It’s just not as fun spending St. Patty’s at home. Although, I must admit that beer tastes still tastes almost as good at home 🙂

    i can’t wait to hear about your shepherd’s pie!

    No hangover’s is a good thing really…Happy St. Patrick’s Day Leslie, try to have a good time!

    Hope it was a grand day anyway! 😉

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you too! Your usual celebration sounds like a hoot. Sorry you will miss it. The recession is pretty much sucking the fun out of life lately. Hope your stew was great.

  22. 22

    P.S. Did you see the cover of Newsweek this week? We have a mandate to go out and spend! It sounds great in theory, but I couldn’t help but wonder, spend what?

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Leslie!
