I'm Irish... I Swear!

Hello all of my fantabulous followers! First off I want to say a big thank you to all of my new followers! You have made my day, heck my week! You should have seen the look on my hubby's face as I started juming up and down shouting "Yipee!!!" I was so excited to see that number climb and continue to climb! As I am writing this post I am at 94 followers! Only 6 more to go until I reach my goal of 100 and one of you lucky followers gets rewarded with a prize! I don't know what the prize is as of yet but I am brainstorming some really good ideas for you! And in the next coming weeks you will see some more changes as I try to make my page easier to navigate for you fantabulous readers!

Now to the reason behind this post "I'm Irish...I Swear!" Now as some of you may have noticed, I L.O.V.E. St. Patrick's Day, It is my second favorite Holiday (first being Christmas). As much as I love it I do not have too many decorations given our current situation. So I am on the hunt for some awesome decorations for you to make! I will have to live vacariously through you since I only have a 10 x 10 foot space to decorate I have to (unfortunately, for the hubby's sanity) limit what I put up for the holiday. This is all I have so far since i bought this last year and leave it up year round:




I know, it is sad that I do not have more up. For those of you who don't know me my maiden name is O'Malley. So I am super duper Irish to the point that I even have this tattoo on my back:


So you can see why I feel I am putting the Irish name to shame right now. So this is my vow to you my fantabulous readers and to my Irish heritage.

"I vow to find amazing St. Patrick's Day decorations not only for me but to share with my fantabulous followers so that they might be Irish as well during this fantastic Holiday!"

So there you have it! In the next coming week you will see some amazing projects that I have found for you from other blogs, along with some pretty cute ideas from me as well! So look forward to me finding my Irsih roots this week as well as you all becoming Irish! Enjoy!

"May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand."

P.S. Don't forget to check out this post to help me decide what day of the week and name to call my new party! Whoever has the winning idea will have their blog featured and win a prize!

  4. I'm really excited to see your ideas. I'm German but I married into an Irish family. I now have a Mc last name. While we have a framed Irish family Crest, we've never done anything to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I think it would be awesome to start some type of tradition with my boys to celebrate their half Irish roots!
