17 Days of Irish

It’s March! (Oh, thank you Jeevus February is over). And, along with spring and the slow return of green is the time for the wearin’ o’ the green! The time everyone becomes just a bit Irish, even if only for a few hours in a pub drinking green beer (note: I have never consumed a green beer, in my opinion there is absolutely nothing Irish about that.)

Though like many Americans, I am a combo order of heritages with a side of who knows what: which for me includes Swedish and Cherokee Indian and Lithuanian…  it’s the Irish in me that sticks out a bit. In high school I worked at a little Irish import store at my local mall, and I can’t tell you how many people thought I hailed from Erin herself. The family that owned the store all came from Ireland, and I may have had a bit of fun copying their accent while on the job – hey, it helped me sell more stuff!

Speaking of stuff -Irish related stuff – for the next 17 days I will share one item each day with you that puts me in the St. Patrick’s Day state of mind.

We’ll start with something simple: an item that has absolutely nothing to do with Ireland or St. Patrick’s day except for the fact that it reminds me of a Shamrock Shake – which comes out in March, and of which I only allow myself one each year. Many times I have held out buying my 1  as a way to draw out the anticipation – until I’m too late and they are gone til next year. That won’t be a problem this year…I got my one time fix last Friday night. My problem now will be sticking to my one a year rule.

Anyways, if you like Shamrock Shakes, or if you see a Girl Scout and instantly imagine Thin Mints chilling in your freezer – then you will love this: The Mint Chocolate candle from Bath & Body Works.

All I can say is it’s a good thing you can’t gain weight from smelling something. It smells freakin’ awesome.

See you tomorrow for some sweet jewelry from Etsy that I just adore. If you have an Irish Dancer in your life, you’ll want to check it out.
