St. Patty's Day Giveaway!

I'm not really into Saint Patrick's day.
It probably has something to do with the fact that
I hate the taste of beer,
don't like getting pinched
and think little leprechauns are kind of creepy.

However, I do think Saint Patrick is pretty awesome
(did you know he was a missionary to the Irish and used the 3 leaf clover as a tool to explain the Trinity)
and I do love the color green.
So in honor of those 2 things
I've decided to share with you some of my favorite Saint Patty inspired Etsy finds
as well as a super cool giveaway.

Enjoy!

lovey. love. love. this dress.

I think Madelyn needs a pair of these.
Possibly in every color.

Wear this around your neck for an extra dose of luck.

I'm pretty sure even a creepy leprechaun would look cute in this.

Holidays are always a good excuse to bake (and eat) lots of sweets.

I may not like beer but I do enjoy a good glass of wine
(when I'm not prego of course).

How precious are these tiny bows?!

I'm pretty much a sucker for anything with a giant flower attached to it.
This is no exception.

These Mr. Lucky shirts are
so. crazy. cute.
I can't stand it.

If you have only girls don't feel left out.
There is a little Miss Lucky shirt too.

Maybe you will be Little Miss Lucky today
because Cristil from Then There Was Five

When Saint Patrick was about 16, he was captured from Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family.

It's a SHAMROCK not a three leaf clover... and no one Irish calls it St.Patty's day, Paddy's Day is bearable, who's Patty?? isn't that short for Patricia!! We drink Guinness not beer here!!

My favorite green thing is grass! I love playing outside with my kids. Can't do that without green grass! Plus green grass usually means the temperatures are warmer. :)

UtahMillers said...

I plan to make a roast (corned beef is gross!), potatoes, green koolaid and rainbow cupcakes for dessert. We are also going to attend a St. Patty's Day parade in DC. Fun!

St. Patrick's Day is observed on March 17, the date of St. Patrick's death.

The grass of course is my favorite thing that is green! I am so ready to see all of the Spring colors and especially the beauty of the grass and flowers coming back to "life"!

I will be taking my daughter to school, going to school myself and then to work on St. Patty's day! I know what fun I am! ha!

The original color hat was associated with Saint Patrick was blue.
Also, at age 16, he was captured and sold into slavery to a sheep farmer. He escaped when he was 22 and spent the next 12 years in a monastery.
