Happy St. Patrick's Day 2016

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I love celebrating St. Patrick's Day every year, it is such a fun spring holiday. Today the sun is shining bright and the sky is blue, I love it when the sun pours through the windows! I have one of my corned beefs in the pot on the stove cooking away, and my lime St. Patrick's cake in the oven. After the cake is out, I'll put in the Irish soda bread, then put the second corned beef in the oven roaster. I have put out my decorations for St. Patrick's Day, so I thought I would share a few pictures.

I set out all of my decorations from years past, as well as some of my new decorations.

This year I only decorated the dining room, since Easter is only a week away I'll have to swap out my St. Pats decor tomorrow and get ready for Easter since it is so early this year. Even though Easter is so soon this year I still wanted to decorate for St. Pat's day since our whole family loves this holiday so much.

I have also recorded a short video tour of my St. Patrick's decor for my YouTube channel which you can see below.

Here are links to some of my previous year's St. Patrick's Posts as well-

Here is a blog post about the recipe I use for Irish Soda Bread-

Here is a link to my St. Patrick's Day Layered Parfaits-

As well as a link to my Lime Jell-O Cake recipe

We will be spending the rest of the day preparing our dinner as well as watching some of our favorite St. Patrick's Day movies. I will also be helping my kids get packed for their spring break adventures, my daughter is going on a mission trip with her college group to Washington, and my son is meeting his girlfriend's family in California and Arizona, so they will be off for a big adventure this Saturday, and gone for a whole week. I am definitely not used to them being gone for so long, and I am definitely praying they will be safe as well as have a great trip. I will be spending most of next week working on my spring projects that I hope to wrap up before Easter! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful St. Patrick's Day! 

Thank for stopping by!
