Happy Friday and St. Patrick’s Day!

Did anyone else feel like this week threw them off a little bit? I’m assuming it was because of Daylight Savings Time, but I don’t know if it’s just me lol! Here are my favorite things from the week:

ST. PATRICK’S DAY 

via GIPHY

I’m predominately Irish, so I love celebrating this holiday with family and friends. I will be drinking some Irish tea this morning and a beer later to celebrate. I also love wearing something green like these two options right here:

Roll Sleeve Blouse

It’s on my bucket list to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Boston and it’s looking like next year might finally be the year 🙂 Anyone do anything fun today?

Where to Eat in New Orleans

My food guide to New Orleans went up on the blog yesterday. If you missed it you can check out all the yummy goodness here! Ugh, I want to go back now for some shrimp creole!

The Shack

I had forgotten all about The Shack until my mom asked me to go see the movie this week and boy did I need the reminder of it’s message. I read the book a long time ago and highly recommend reading it before you see the movie. If you don’t have time to read the book then still go see the movie. I had a good ugly cry at the end and was reminded to just let things go. Forgiveness is a powerful thing. 

Did anyone read the book or see the movie? I would love to hear your thoughts down below 🙂

Tropical Nail Polish

I had to head down to Daytona Beach for a few days this week and since I was missing the snow storm back up North and taking in the sun, I wanted a brighter nail polish. Well Blossom Dandy by Essie was the perfect color 🙂 I like to change my nail colors a lot and according to season but I must say tropical nail colors are my favorite. They make me so happy 🙂

 

Beauty and The Beast Comes Out Today!

It feels like the previews have been on forever and I can’t wait to finally see the movie! Especially after playing Disney princesses with my two year old goddaughter lately, I’m ready to jump back into the world of Belle 🙂

Don’t forget there is still time to enter the contest with Home Away to win a stay at the Duns Castle in Scotland with 20 of your closest loves! Click here to enter because I know staying in an European castle for free is on your bucket list 🙂

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!

    I have Beauty & the Beast on my must see list – but I’m not sure when I’ll make it since I’ll be packing up a majority of the weekend! Hopefully I’ll get to see it soon!

    I’m from the Boston area & never celebrated St Patrick’s day there. I think the parade is tomorrow. I’ve also never been to a marathon. I love that nail polish. I love Daytona. Have fun. Stopping by from Saturday Sharefest.
