Saint Patrick's Day Round Up

Am I the only person who feels like we just celebrated Valentine's Day?!? 

Seriously, the weeks have been flying by these last few months. I cannot believe that spring is right around the corner and the next big holiday, Saint Patrick's Day, is next week. 

This holiday sparks a few memories for me such as green beer, scrambling to find something green to throw on, and proudly sporting a "Kiss Me I'm Irish" button. That being said, let me reach into my pot of gold and share a few shimmering facts with you. 

1. I don't drink beer, like ever. If you see me with a beer in my hand it's a desperate time that called for a desperate measure. Therefore, green beer doesn't thrill or excite me - at all. 

2. I hardly own anything green. That includes, but is not limited to: shirts, underwear, pants, workout clothes, jewelry, etc. Why do I have such issues with the color green? Because the private school I went to for six years was obsessed with it. It was one of the school colors and it was EVERYWHERE. Hence, why it is scarce post high school. 

3. I'm not Irish. In fact, I have no idea what my heritage is, but I like sassy buttons with kissy faces on them.

4. Now that I am a mom, less important holidays (such as this one) are frequently searched in an attempt to be a better Pinterest mom. Eh, that's a partial lie, but I strive to make the holidays fun for E. 

Today, I'm sharing a few festive ideas to celebrate March 17 - most of which are toddler approved. Notice I said most, not all. Let's face it, sometimes mommy needs a little bit of alcohol. 

Morning:

Shamrock Smoothies from Right Meow Or Never


St. Patrick's Day Pancakes from Morgan Manages Mommyhood

Noon:

St. Patrick's Day Fruit Salad from Morgan Manages Mommyhood


Traditional Irish Brown Soda Bread from Tine At Home



Traditional Irish Potato Pancakes from Tine At Home


Night:

Cabbage, Bacon & Potatoes from Karyl's Kulinary Krusade


Sweet Treats:

Leprechaun Punch from Little Dove


Andes Mint Milkshake from Simply Made Recipes


Cake Pops from Delicious Little Bites


Irish Whiskey Cupcakes from The Lucky Pear

And don't forget the perfect accessory to help you power through the following day - especially if you over-indulged in some green beer!

Coffee Sleeves from The Weary Wallflower

I'm really loving the cake pops, but have zero faith that mine would look as good.

Do you have big plans for Saint Patrick's Day or anything fun you are doing for the family?

Maybe some Irish luck will find me and I'll remember to wear something green!

  2. You had me at Andes Mint Milkshakes!!!! Oh those look good! And I'm with you, we don't ever do anything for St. Patty's Day. It's just never on my radar. I guess I should be ashamed since I'm part Irish! Woops!

    1. Thank you for giving permission. :) And yes, the sleeve is super cute - I'm pretty much sold on anything coffee related.

    1. I can make recipes taste amazing, but lack in presentation. Maybe I'll have a glass of wine and give it a try!

  5. I have coworkers texting me as I'm reading this asking about going out to dinner for St. Paddy's Day. I may go to a local festival they have in my area each year. I'll be talking about it in a post later this week.

  9. I want to make green pancakes for my girls, but we will be flying to Mexico that day. Maybe this weekend as a pre-St. Patty's Day.
