Our Green Weekend

Don't let the red hair fool you.  We are not Irish.  Yet as previously posted, we aren't going to let anything stop us from celebrating a holiday.  And we redheads especially love St. Patrick's Day because green is one of our best colors to wear.  So for that reason, and again, because we love some festive fun ... we decided to rock green on both Friday, Saturday, & Sunday of this holiday weekend.

Onsie from Old Navy
Onsie from Zulily, Hat & Jeans from BabyGap, and Shoes from Old Navy.

For St. Patrick's Day Eve, we made some festive chocolate-covered pretzels for our family & friends.  Waverly's favorite part?  Sucking on them, of course.

                         On the official holiday, we figured our shamrock covered tutu was only appropriate.
Waverly's Onsie: H&M, Jeans: Macy's, Tutu: TJ Maxx, Shoes: Old Navy
My Shirt: Forever 21, Blazer: H&M
For breakfast, we decided to give our lovely leprechaun an extra something special  Her first pancake!  I have to give credit to my husband for making these yummy, green shamrock pancakes that Waverly Maye devoured.  Yep, the girl has a sweet tooth for sure.

Made with green food coloring & a cookie cutter from Amazon.

To make sure she felt as lucky as she makes us feel everyday, Waverly's special surprise was the bib she is wearing above.  I ordered it from Etsy in honor of the Irish. 

Unwrapping her shamrock surprise.

And to end our special day, I pulled back out the coins.  She was super excited.  I'm thinking these coins may extend past the holiday.

I hope everyone had a lucky little day like we did.  It's time to get Easter ready, as it's less than 2 weeks until that bunny arrives ... who was on the planning commitee for that one?



  1. I love her bib! It is so cute!

  2. haha couldn't agree more on the planning committee, love all the green outfits, she seriously is precious!
