I want to wreck my stockings in some jukebox dive.

Let’s party kids! My great grandparents were Irish and for some reason I am overly proud of this fact. I love that I can go around this time of the year and tell everyone that I am Irish and I am not completely talking out of my ass. I know my Irish friends would laugh in my face and tell me that I do not know the first thing about being Irish and that this day is bullshit, but I do not care and I am going to drink Guinness and green colored drinks until the cows come home! Maybe I will even try out my best Irish accent, could be interesting.

As I mentioned before, a lovely gal I went to STU with called Kristin packed up, flew over the big blue ocean and is now a nanny just outside of Kildare, Ireland. Well, the little ladies she is looking after are probably two of the cutest children I have ever seen, I can not even handle it. Here is the fabulous Kristin and the youngest:

Just found out that one my dear acquaintances decided to up and take off to Ireland to become an au pair. I have to admit that I am a tad jealous and I really admire her courage! I have been thinking about moving over there for several years now but I just can not seem to take the leap (that and my bank account will not allow me). I have been to Europe five times now (quite excesses, I know…read: broke) and I made my way over to Ireland a couple of times. My great grandparents were Irish so I have been meaning to find out whether or not I can get a dual citizenship (wishful thinking?) Did I mention that I LOVE Irish men? I would love to wake up on any odd morning to a gent whispering sweet nothings in an Irish accent in my ear (I am so demanding). 

Yes, I do realize that all the possible stereotypes are within this tourist video. 

I got into my head that I would like to live in Cork even though I have never been, nor do I know anyone who has.

and I would like to live here:


and I will travel the eight miles to kiss the blarney stone, oh yes, I shall.
