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.

    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?

    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!

    Your mom rules. rain boots and polka dots are too of my very favorite things.

    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
