Fiddle Dee Dee, Potatoes!

Happy St Patrick's Day!!
I am Irish, well at least 1/4 of me anyways. In 2006 my family and I and some good friends were luckily enough to be able to visit Ireland for a few weeks. Ireland was utterly beautiful and green as green. It was the only place that I didn't have to explain how to spell my Irish last name!

At Glendalough

Out in the heather with the fam

Blarney Castle

Kissing the Blarney Stone

On the moon!

sisters and friends



Her eyes they shone like diamonds

I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair it hung over her shoulder
Tied up with a black velvet band

- Black Velvet Band




I called my dentist to find out if what was going on in my general face region was normal. They said not and got me in on a cancellation to start the root canal. I am ecstatic to say that for the first time in a week and a half I am not in any pain! My dentist is a hero! I want to buy her flowers!

So these pictures are brought to you by a frozen mouth, a massive nap, and rubbed off green party eyes shadow!
earrings: folk fest vendor
cardi: Ricki's
skirt worn as a shirt: um? Cotton Ginny? It was about 15 years ago that I bought it
belt: H&M
jeans: Smart Set
shoes: Red or Dead Maxa via ebay



Today I am thankful for being able to grit my teeth, sleep through the night and smile in a real way!

I am so jealous you've been to Ireland! My dad has been there for work a few times and all the photos are insanely beautiful! You look so festive and I love your shoes!

great green dress and shoes! Ireland looks amazing!

my sister is an endodontist (does root canals) and says she always gets bummed that people are afraid of her. she says "i don't cause pain, i relieve it!" so i'm sure your dentist appreciates that you realize that :)

Wow, you're really in the spirit! I forgot it was St. P's Day till 3pm when I was told I'd get a discount on something if I was wearing green. And I wasn't :( Thank goodness your teeth are better!

It was great to see your pictures of Ireland! I have to say that I have yet to see a color that doesn't look good on you! Your complexion is the perfect canvas for any hue, lady! This dress is just sassy and I love the belted look!

Glad you had a good St Paddy's day, sadly I work in an Irish themed pub so I was working a very long and very busy shift!

What absolutely BEAUTIFUL pics. I'm a little jealous, I'm not going to lie. I'm happy to hear you're not in pain anymore, toothaches are the worst! Your shoes are to die for and really the whole outfit makes me smile. Yours ALWAYS brighten my day!
