Irish at heart

Ever since I was a little girl I have believed that I was Irish. Why? The reasons are pretty obvious:

*My obsession with green
*My birthday is in March
*I have reddish hair as do the Irish
*Ever heard "ERIN go braugh!?"
*I dream of visiting Ireland someday
*I WORSHIP Irish River dancers
(favorite quote from Chandler on Friends: "they dance about as if their legs are disconnected from their body!") So cool.

So...every year at school I would wear my "Kiss Me I'm Irish" pin and proudly tell everyone that I was an Irish girl. And then I married Kenny. He decided to ask our parents do some extensive research and discovered that I don't have an ounce of Irish in me while HE on the other hand has many Irish ancestors. He loves to remind me that I'm the only one in our little family of four who ISN'T Irish.


Today I'm decked in my St. Patty's day green and am telling everyone that I'm an Irish girl.....
at heart.

Happy St. Patrick's Day and ERIN go braugh to you!

Happy St. Patty's Day, to a true irish lass! I totally remember that irish button too - with sparkles all over it. We'd fight about who got to wear it! By the way, LOVE your new little blog design! Very cute.

Hi Sweetie,

Top o the morning to ya. The kids and I are down at the pub soluting our Irish ancestors today. I tried as hard as I could to convince the leprechauns guarding the door to let you in but they have a rule against allowing muggles (that's what we call the non-Irish) into the pub. We'll throw back a few pints and dance around a few shamrocks in your honor and see you when the festivities are over. Sorry that you are the only non-Irish person in the family. Must be a bummer.

Love Kenny

Hi Erin! so glad you said Hello! Thank you so much for the kind words, it made my day! I did not grow up in St. George, I actually grew up in SLC. I do love to visit St. George and I have made friends with a couple girls who grew up there. I think they are a lot older than you, though.

Anyway, you are too funny...and IRISH! love it!
