Here in the Guerra household we are celebrating our Irish pride today.
We be dancin' jigs and reels 'round these parts!
Yes, I realize that seems silly, having a last name of Guerra and being Irish, but it's true! I can't help the fact that the men in my husband's family took a fancy to pretty Irish lasses like me. What can I say, the red hair draws them in like flies to honey!
I have to brag a little on my husband, so bear with me. This is what he dressed my daughter in this morning while I was still in bed hacking my lungs up like a 90 year old man (and yes, I do sound like one right now...sexy!):
This little leprechaun is up to no good.
He even coordinated her HAIR accessories with her outfit! Yep. And I had absolutely NO input on it either. I was in bed, remember? I am super proud. Hands off ladies (and gents), this one's all mine!
She looks like she stepped out of a Jane Austen novel!
Anyhoo, depending on how I feel tonight, we will be dining with Michael's cousin Stephen and his girlfriend Casey on all sorts of Irish feasting fancies. Stephen does it up right: lamb, colcannon, boxty, and we'll even throw back an Irish car bomb or two I'm sure. I shall be contributing home made soda bread and black and tan brownies (recipes to be posted soon if they turn out yummy). I'm really hoping to be able to join in the festivities, but we'll see.
If anything, my sleep shall be uninterrupted tonight, because Michae's mom is on spring break this week and took Sybilla for a sleep over party at her house. Seriously, did I luck out with mothers-in-law or what!? I am so blessed and I love my in laws dearly.
To all our friends and family, an Irish blessing for you:
May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
The Guerra Clan
