Luck 'O the Irish!

In honor of this momentous occasion I shall:
Relax on my Patty O'Furniture and enjoy my favorite dessert,        Ore O'Blizzard.  And I'll watch this amazing video ALL DAY!

I've also chosen this day to share another major award! It was actually awarded to me last week, but like so many academy winners I was "not present to receive". (I couldn't figure out how to get it and I was stressing over who to pass it on to!)

But I've chosen today to post it because it was awarded to me from my dear friend, Shannon O'Riley. Well, I'm not sure what her last name is but I'm pretty sure its not O'Riley (sorry Shannon) BUT her name is SHANNON which is very Irish and her beautiful blog is called Faith-Hope and Love!    LOVE IT!    She is truly one of the most encouraging people I've come across and there's a BUNCH of you guys that are! So go see her.

Now here's my list of recepients. I was worried about giving this award to people who've already received it but tell Katharine Hepburn she can only win once (she's won four Oscars, which is the most!) or Taylor and Beyonce' they only get one Grammy. "Sorry girls, its not fair to everyone else if you take home all the toys..."

But I do have to put my own twist on this prestigous award:

MY NEWEST FRIEND award to Farmgirl Paints
her art is gorgeous and  i love the music she has in the background. I turn it on instead of the radio now.

MOST LIKELY TO CAUSE ME TO LICK THE MONITOR goes to Mennonite Girls Can Cook   just go see for yourself! Tell me you're not tempted to lick your screen!

YOU SO GET ME AND THAT'S A LITTLE SCARY award is a tie. See, we strange birds have to stick together. We know the world can be a frightening place but we are armed with more sarcasm than the entire cast of the Office! So Bring it on!  (she likes stuff)  (and she has cute painted toenails)   (still not sure where the name comes from but trust me, it doesn't matter)  (love her banner)

I know there are many, many others and ladies (and gents) I want to thank you for making me laugh a lot!


BETTER THAN PROZAC award goes to (for its soothing, spa-like qualities)


and finally (I have no idea how many of these I'm supposed to pass out but I'm on a roll!)
for the guys in my bloggy world! This is mainly to see if they'll post a cute flower on their blog. But you'll enjoy reading them regardless.  ( i helped him name this blog)

One more treat for the day! Please notice I have a button up. Yep, built it myself. Hopefully I'll have a really cute, professional one someday, but in the meantime I would go nuts (in a great way) if you took it with you and let me know if it works or not.

Have an incredible day and if you're not wearing green go pinch yourself and consider it from me!


  1. Congrats on your award! No pinching here...I remembered at the last possible moment that I needed to wear green but I got it on!

  2. Congrats on the award! I am still laughing at the Patty O'Furniture and the Ore O'Blizzard! :-D

  3. well, thank you for this lovely award...and believe me licking the screen has way less calories, then eating the real lick away my friend, lick away.....;^D

  4. Well thank you sweetie. I'm honored to be your new blogging buddy. Cracks me up you play my music instead of the radio!!!

  5. Congrats on your award and I am going to watch that video now. I just heard of Celtic Pride yesterday. They are adorable.

  8. Referenced you in my blog today! Hope that's OK!

  9. Oh Sweetie, Thank you so much, and yes, I'll gratefully accept the award; I have decided I love blogging too much to stop: I will just get my sanity back in place and hopefully return soon.
    Having completely lost track of the days, I hadn't realized today was St. Patrick's, and alas, was not wearing green. So I had to pinch myself, but, HAHA, my body is so numb, I didn't feel it! There are benefits to be crazy after all!
    Also, please check your email and verify that I sent the right mail to YOU and not someone else! Let me know ASAP, please, as it's quite important to me. Thanks, Sweetie!

    *twirls around, hands clasped under my chin*

    Thank you, sweet friend. And also, because I care, and because you haven't yet roamed through the 200 bazillion previous posts of mine, I shall leave the link that explains the mystery behind my name.



"Thank you, and do come back now, ya heah?"
(No she didn't...yes she did.)
