Happy St. Patrick's Day and Musings

I didn't really do any decorating for St. Pat's this year. With Easter coming so early, I pretty much decided to just go with Easter decor instead. I did however, find time to purchase a package of these little shamrock cookies at HEB...




It was delicious and was pretty much the extent of my St. Patrick's celebrations. :) 

Speaking of HEB, one of my Instagram friends and fellow Texan, @positivelypollyanna recommended these brownie bites they carry. I had to try them and she was right, they were a hit! Everyone loved them!


 

If you're local, you might want to give them a whirl. :)

One more quick thing. My mom and I had the best day this week! It was totally unplanned, but so much fun. :) She had a dental appointment on my side of town, so she dropped by to say hello and since it was lunch time and we were both hungry, we went to the tea room and had our favorite dish. Then we decided to have a little retail therapy and shopped until we (literally) dropped. We were exhausted, but had the best time and got so many great deals on clothes! 

I spent around $85, but I got 15 new tops to wear! FIFTEEN, y'all! We ran into the most wonderful clearance and everything we picked up was either $3, $7, or $9. I won't bore you with showing pics of everything, but look at this cute tunic with lace at the bottom...



I love it and got it in two colors. It's pretty light weight too, so I can wear it almost year round. 


And lastly, after a lot of spring rain, we finally had sunny skies the other day and I had to take a pic of the sun streaming in my bedroom windows...



That's it for now. Hope y'all have a great day and may the luck of the Irish be with you!

  9. I'm impressed with the great buys you found on clothes while shopping with your mom! I don't believe we have a HEB store here. Now is the best time to find Winter clothes marked down!

  10. Wow! I would die having 15 new tops!! I love wearing new clothes the first time. I love this one...is the striped hoodie layered over the tunic or is it one piece?

    I don't decorate for St. Paddy's Day either. I just can't get caught up in changing things around or adding stuff for each and every season and/or holiday!
