Etc Who Gets a St. Patrick’s Day Gift? March 13, 2009 I’ve mentioned before what an excellent gift-giver my mom is and this year, for St. Patrick’s Day/Easter, she did not disappoint. Of course, she keeps raising the bar – how can this be topped next year? Also, you’ll notice that this is yet another day of jeans and a black shirt. 19 Comments Share You Might Also Like Miscellaneous and Probably Boring Thoughts on Harry Potter July 19, 2011 Baby #3 October 20, 2014 It Doesn’t Take Much April 27, 2012 19 Comments Reply Becca March 13, 2009 at 2:37 pm I have those! They’re part of my winter uniform–I too wear a LOT of black shirts and jeans. Reply diana banana March 13, 2009 at 3:14 pm will she adopt me? those are awesome!! Reply RA March 13, 2009 at 3:14 pm Cute! But help me understand: does everyone in your family exchange gifts for St. Patrick’s Day/Easter? Or is this just a Mom-to-kids thing? Do you know something’s coming every year? Reply lacie tidwell March 13, 2009 at 3:41 pm CUTE boots! you’re rockin’ them in your jeans and black shirt! Your boots make your outfit festive! How fun your mom sends you a St. Patricks/Easter gift- that’s awesome! Reply heidikins March 13, 2009 at 3:43 pm My mom gives St. Paddy’s gifts, or rather, she used to. For years she’d send my sisters and I green carnations at school…I loved it. Also–what city is the subway map from? I absolutely LOVE it! xox Reply Merrick March 13, 2009 at 4:24 pm They look great, even with a black shirt and jeans 🙂 Good choice! Reply Elizabeth March 13, 2009 at 4:25 pm Your mom rules. rain boots and polka dots are too of my very favorite things. Reply Packrat March 13, 2009 at 4:28 pm I saw similar boots in bright yellow & ? at JoAnn's. Thought they were so cute, but I resisted. 🙂 Glad your mom bought some. These seem to be really popular this year. As to the black – after Easter I challenge you to wear bright colored tops. You may keep wearing the black jeans. LOL Reply kelly March 13, 2009 at 5:12 pm they’re not only awesome, they’re totally appropriate to wear today, too! wantwantwant.
