Kiss me! I'm Irish-ish!!
Today is the day for green clothes, green shamrock pins, garish green plastic bowler hats, and for some, green beer. Tyler's school is even having green pancakes for their morning snack. I have been scouring the internet for several years looking for a shirt to wear on this day that goes a step beyond "Kiss me, I'm Irish". Somewhere back through the years on the Harper side, according to Aunt Lois, there were Irish ancestors--Harper is a sept of Clan Buchanan after all. However, I am so much more than just Irish...so I consider myself to be "Irish-ish"...unfortunately, so far, I have been unable to locate a shirt with this exact phrase on it...I suppose I'm going to have to trot out my crafty side and create the dang thing for myself. The really funny thing about St. Patrick's Day is that it makes me feel awkward about listening to Celtic music and it makes me feel like a poser for wearing a celtic knot necklace, even though I listen to this music all year round and wear some type of celtic knot necklace nearly every day.
