Mom, Dad: I'm Gaelic!

Happy St. Patty's Day, everyone! Hope you will find some time today to listen to some Flogging Molly and have yourself a green beer. Or just a beer in any form. I celebrated a bit this weekend:


And because I'm an awesome sister, when my little sis called me from a bar in Soulard, I did, in fact, go and pick up her DRUNK ASS. Here she is with a friend...



My husband also is quite the character, LITERALLY, when it comes to St. Pats. Here he is in all of his glory.


Yes, he made that thing. Cute. Also - fucking annoying.

Anyway, I'm off to get some corned beef and cabbage (which is an American thing, by the way). Yeah, I know. It's so stereotypical. What is with us Americans and our food stereotyping? Oh my GOD. Don't get me started on that one. Because I have SOUTHERN roots as well. Assume what you will about that, and you're probably right when it comes to the food.

Slainte!

Ha ha! Love the costume! Where does he wear that, exactly?

Fana: Yeah, I guess. Trojan was better. Truth is, I don't really find this shit funny anymore.

lorid: Hubs makes a costume for every holiday and then runs all around town wearing it into every bar he can find.

You and your sister are both SO CUTE.

Kristen: Yes, I had a beer (or 3 for you). Damn, woman. Let's fix you up, okay?

Tessie: Thanks, chica! And, yes, the corned beef and cabbage thing - nuts, right?

Matt: I will recommend that one. Halloween perhaps???

Saly said...

Wow, it must be a trip living with your man.

Corned beef? Cabbage?? How am I going to get that two full days after St. Patty's? I wonder if my mother would object to serving it for Easter Dinner?

mom of the year said...

Saly: Yes, my hubs is definitely a trip. And the corned beef? For Easter? That would be awesome! DOWN WITH HAM!
