My {5}

St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us (this Saturday) and no Patty's Day is complete without watching John Wayne drag Maureen O'Hara home from the train station in the classic 1952 film, The Quiet Man. "Oh mister, MISTER...here's a stick to beat the lovely lady!"

A close second to #{1} is watching a very young Sean Connery woo the lovely Janet Munro, while Albert Sharpe dances and plays for the good King Brian in Darby O'Gill and the Little People. "Oh she is my dear, my darling one, my smiling and beguiling one...I love the ground she walks upon...my darling Irish girl!"

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for holiday decor. Several years ago I picked up a set of 10 Green Sparkle Shamrock Lights from my local Target, and while they aren't available in my store this year, they are available online. I have them hanging over my kitchen sink and they bring a smile to my face each time I walk through the room.


Last Thursday I came home from work and my sweet honey had stopped by the grocery store on his way home and picked up a potted shamrock for our living room. Of course, I squealed like a little girl and tucked it safely into a little tin pot that I had saved in my Great Purge of 2012. In my mind, nothing says "Happy St. Patrick's Day" like a festive pot of green clover.


I always carry around at least one bottle of PocketBac Anti-Bacterial Hand Sanitizer from Bath and Body Works, and in recent years, my little holiday-loving heart has been extra happy as they introduced holiday themed PocketBacs. Last year I picked up the Who's Your Paddy green apple scent, just in time for St. Patrick's Day. They have them again this year ($1.50 online) and if you want a little hint of the Irish in your purse, this would be one (fun) way to go about it.
