What I Wore Sunday, vol 7

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 

I love celebrating this feast day. It was always a big tradition growing up, we'd go to the parade downtown, then go watch some of our close friends who were Irish dancers perform at a restaurant or local Knights of Columbus, then in the evening go to grandma's for an Irish feast that was to die for, with her authentic Celtic music playing away in the background. Now I have the great joy to pass on these traditions in my own little family! There was sadly no local parade, or Irish dancers, but I was in the kitchen all day, and if I do say so myself, it all tasted just as good as my mom or grandma's. Which naturally made me feel a bit homesick. 

We went to the vigil mass again this weekend, because Luke and the team had an event with the student leaders this morning. Afterwards we went over to the seminary for a St. Patrick's day party, with pizza! Honestly, I didn't care, it was perfect for the kids. There were a few other little girls there that Hailey had a ball playing with. When we had to leave, she said to me, "where dey go? hug?"

Someone wanted to join me, love her.

this scarf was a gift from Luke that he got in Assisi back in October. It was the perfect accessory to this outfit making it St. Patrick and Pope Francis celebratory. 

Speaking of Luke, he worked close to 70 hours this past week and let's just say, by yesterday afternoon, I was really feeling it. It was a crazy busy week, and I tried to remind myself (as did he) that these weeks don't happen often, but I had already hit that point where seeing the bright side of things wasn't really going to happen. Hopefully, this week will be less chaotic. I'm trying not to think about the fact that he has to work this upcoming weekend too. We do have a break for Easter, which will be much needed, but we are traveling, spending the holiday with in-laws, so the kids will be out of sync....yes, I'm being a little pessimistic at the moment, it will pass.

Of you go now to greener pastures. :)
