Feeling Lucky? Kiss Me I’m Irish …

5 ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

1) Food coloring! Supposedly, my mother-in-law dyed all edibles green on this day, starting off with green oatmeal in the mornings!

2) Clover. So I always thought of clover as being the stuff that grows wild in the yard. This year, I bought a gorgeous plant, complete with white flowers. Who knew?

3) Guinness. I have to admit, I’m not a beer drinker, but at our Irish-themed dinner, hubby will have one of his favorite brews.

4) Target T-shirts. I admit it, I usually buy mine before Valentine’s Day.

5) Corned Beef & Cabbage. It’s a must, isn’t it? Mine goes into the Crock-Pot early on St. Patrick’s Day, and we’ll eat for dinner.

Coming Thursday, March 20 – Her Wolf Ménage

She seeks adventure

What’s the use of living in a wolf pack when one isn’t a shifter? Jana strikes out from Louisiana’s national forest to New Orleans to find herself, only to discover more questions.

They want the same woman

The moment Jana steps into the French Quarter, Andre pursues the naïve beauty. An artist, he senses the hidden wolf beneath the surface, and her nature calls to him. It’s not until she leaves that long-time friend Dominick realizes what he wants. The two alpha weres must battle it out or learn to share to reach their happy ending.

Make sure to friend me to join the Facebook party from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. PST on Thursday. Lots of prizes, and plenty of author-friends will drop by!

  3. I'm wearing a green shamrock necklace that is filled with little bells... an orange, white & green wrap bracelet that has Irish flags dangling from it... and a green shirt with my maiden name on it - "McCormick"! I'm also keen on the use of green food coloring - milk, I dye the butter, add in green sanding sugar to the cinnamon & sugar, etc... My kids have already come downstairs to check their Leprechaun trap to see if they caught the sneaky little guy! michelle at oxrider dot com

  4. I don't have much green cause it makes me look sick, but I have on a pale green shirt and slightly darker green underwear. I love corned beef. Stopped in at a local store on Sat.: NOT A SINGLE PACKAGE!!!!!! Corporate made an ordering error. I got a rain check for 5 packages, but STILL!!!! I think it's spaghetti tonight, sigh.

  5. Happy St Patty's Day

    I have a green t-shirt that says "kiss me I'm Irish" :)

    I'm married to an Irish man, 20 years later, I still hate Guinness beer.


  9. Loving the hop! Finding some great new pages - thank you!!!! Happy St. Patty's Day!

  10. I just happen to have green panties and a bra, now to track down a green shirt so I can go out in n public without getting pinched ;)

  11. I am actually wearing nothing green today, it is so cold out that all my green shirts are too thin. I did dress my kids in green for school though!

  12. I am reading a book with a little green in the cover. I don't own anything that is green.

  13. Green is my favorite color! I had green hair for literally five years before I dyed it back to a normal shade for work reasons. Currently I'm sporting green lingerie, appalling green socks, and a long-sleeved green shirt for St. Patrick's Day! I sent you a friend request as Shandra Torbett on Facebook so if you worry "is this a crazy?" nope, just me. <3 shandra.torbett(@) since my Comcast account is acting up. Thanks for the chance to win and the party invite! I love Facebook party games.

    1. Hee, hee ... I may have some green panties today, Shandra so right there with you!

  14. Thank you so much for the blog hop. Happy St. Patrick's Day and I'm wearing green socks with clovers all over them.


    1. I couldn't find my clover socks today, but I do wear them year-round, so they are probably on the bottom of the to-be-folded pile!

  15. I have on my Orange and Green shirt that says kiss me I'm Irish.... :)

  16. I like the idea of dying everything green to eat! I think I might use this next year! I have a green t-shirt on that says Kiss me , I'm Irish! Hope you have a Happy St. Patrick's Day! Take care and thanks for sharing your ideas!

  17. I had my nail gal paint a shamrock on both ring fingers. And I love those Target holiday shirts :) I get a new one every year for each holiday.

    1. Laurie, you were the official winner of this contest. Yay! I'll be sending you an email.

  18. I am wearing a green shirt and green socks. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
