Happy St Patty's Day!!!

Top 'O the Morning to Ya!! Happy St. Patrick's to all of you!!

This is the day that I get to wear my MOST favorite shoes. Not that I need a special day to wear these since I wear them all the time (of course!!)


I LOVE my green Chucks!! We visited a Converse store last summer & there they were. It was that type of moment, when you can see nothing else, but what you HAVE to have. I looked at my DH with big eyes & a smile to match (probably like a kid in a candy store) & he did what he often does with me, he shook his head, rolled his eyes & said, go ahead. Woo hoo!!! I'm getting a pair of Chucks in one of my most favorite colors!!! I must have been the happiest girl on the planet at that moment. :)

The young girl at the check out mentioned as I was paying for my shoes that they were selling a shirt in the same color to match my shoes. I thanked her for letting me know but then shared that I already had two in that color to match at home :)

I've been reading up a lot on my trip in May, to Rome & Croatia & have been hearing stories of others who have gone to Rome before me. I've heard things such as women don't wear shorts in Rome & you can tell if you're American if you wear tennis shoes. I can respect the no shorts, it will be May so the weather shouldn't be too hot, but tennis shoes? I'm going to be walking all over that wonderful city & my feet are going to be comfortable, so I don't care if you can tell if I'm American or not, I'm wearing my tennis shoes. Besides, I'm sure I'll probably stick out anyway - I'm thinking there's probably not many blonde Italians that live there? :) (maybe I'm wrong)

Wonder if my green Chucks should explore the Roman streets with me or better yet, the Old Town of Dubrovnik (Croatia)?

You go for it - they are fabulous! They don't do them in purple do they? :)
Just been catching up with your wonderful blog. Love the faux leather journal, a great piece of work, how could you bear to part with it?

I used to have a pair in RED, my favorite color. Don't know what happened to them. Darn, now I'm sad. I hope you wore yours to work.
