Pinch Me!


Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Today I totally gave into my little girl
and all the cool Irish things she has been learning at school.
Hey, I'm not Irish so I was truly dependent
upon all the great ideas out on so many great blogs!
Not like I did a ton but hey if you are clueless like I am
make sure you bookmark these fun spots for next year....

Our day started with some top o' the morning fun
with Lucky Charms for breakfast!
Yup, I went alllllllll out!

Next I tried to make cabbage rolls, that's sorta Irish right?
I've never made them before but tasted one
way back in college and thought I'd give them a try.
I got a great recipe over at All Recipes.

Next was where I had fun,
cuz really what says St. Patrick's Day more than rainbows?
Amy over at The Idea Room
made the coolest rainbow cake for her daughter's birthday.
Candace made it for her son's birthday and
I couldn't resist, especially since the last few weeks
all my daughter has been drawing are Leprechaun's and rainbows.
Mine is a bit more pastel but let me tell ya, it was SaWeEEeeeT!
It was huge and so pretty
and when I cut it open and saw all the pretty colors it just made me happy!
My little girl was so excited putting it together and so was I.

Another great site to check out that I just found is
She has so many great holiday ideas that I'm already making my list for next year!
I have to admit, I loved today.
And hey, I didn't even get pinched!:)
