St. Patrick vs. Selection Sunday

Everyone knows how much I love the holidays...big & small!  I also happen to be a big college basketball fan!  So why oh why do St. Patrick's Day & Selection Sunday have to coincide this year?!  I would like to celebrate them separately and give them each the attention they deserve!  Nonetheless, we are doing some dual celebrating today.  I completely dropped the ball on taking Liam to a parade yesterday...  Being in a new city is completely throwing me off my game.  Come next year, we'll definitely be hitting up a parade as Liam will be old enough to gather up all sorts of candy for his Mama's big sweet tooth!

Today's festivities include watching Bracketology while our corned beef cooks in its bath of Guiness & Smithwicks!  I'll be throwing back some hard cider while anxiously waiting to hear the announcement of the #1 seeds... C'mon Gonzaga!  For Christmas, I bought Conor & I tickets to the 1st & 2nd round of the tourney in Salt Lake City, so we are particularly excited this year!  Good thing Liam has a couple Gonzaga outfits to sport to the games!

Last year on St. Patrick's Day, we announced Liam's name (post here)!  I remember trying to imagine what our lives would be like when the holiday rolled around again.  It is so incredibly better than I ever could have thought!  He brings an extra delight to every day and especially holidays!  I had a little fun dressing him in sorts of green...all the way down to his diapers!  A year can completely change things, and I'll never look back!  Tonight I'll be singing my little L to sleep with our new favorite song:  Too-Rah-Loo-Rah (an Irish lullaby)...and then he'll wake up 20 minutes later! ;-)  Life is so sweet; I am one lucky Mama.
