Im not wearing green but I am drinking out of my CafeMom green and white coffee mug if that counts.

I bought Irish soda bread at the bakery yesterday and I am making corned beef, cabbage and potatoes for dinner. Since I don't drink alcohol during Lent, I am making green mocktails for my little guy and I to have with dinner.

I don't own any green clothes. I also don't know how to cook any Irish foods. We don't do a lot for St. Patrick's Day, but my daughter gets excited for any holiday, and is currently looking for a green shirt, lol.

Normally, I was always covered with my earrings (emerald), but after having my son was born, he kept grabbing at them, so I took them out and just never put them back in (10 years later lol). I rarely go anywhere, so haven't really thought of it. I did mean to pick something green up for my son, but the weekend went by fast and I forgot. 

I am sadly not a fan of corned beef or cabbage, tried them many times, but that was something I could never get into. I do not drink when I don't have the hubby home, so with him in Korea, no drinking today. Now, I might do a Boondocks movie night LOL.

It's pathetic but I'm still in my mom uniform (black yoga pants and grey hoodie). I'm having stomach issues this morning and haven't gotten dressed for the day. I did make sure all three boys had green outfits ready to go this morning. Now I'm off to take a shower and hopefully find something green to put on.
