St. Patrick's Day Prep!

St Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays! My grandmother was born and raised I. Ireland and still has her adorable accent and wit!
Fun fact: I'm actually a dual citizen of the US and Ireland! (Thanks to my sister for figuring it all out for us!)
My parents are coming over for dinner and leprechaun trap making! Setting traps for the leprechaun was one of my favorite traditions as a kid and I'm so excited to start the tradition with John Rex and Bridget.
My mom is making this deliciousness:
Corned Beef Sauerkraut Reuben Braid

I will post our finished product but I thought I'd share some ideas I found via the ole Pinterest machine!

And my favorite Irish Blessing: (Would also be a great toast!)

Don't forget to wear your green tomorrow!

Wishlist Wednesday

I've got a super busy April so I've been trying to prepare for everything by shopping of course :)
Kicking things off I'm going to Cabo first weekend in April for one of my besties bachelorette party!! I could not be more excited!! But having 2 babies in 2ish years has taken a toll on my summer wardrobe.. I had Bridget early May and declared last summer "The Summer of Workout Wear!" So all I have from last summer are shorts that I bought at old navy that luckily don't fit anymore.. and my shorts from 2 years ago are really like 4-5 years old at this point..

So long story short.. I need new everything - shorts, swimsuits, tanks and even sandals!
Here's what is currently in my cart, just waiting for me to pull the trigger :)

Can't decide between this print, white or red? Has a super cute back too!
BP Cold Shoulder Top - $35.99
Main Image - BP. Cold Shoulder Top

Loving these espadrilles!
Slingback Espadrilles - On Sale for $99

Also love this breezy top!
Faithful the Brand - on Sale $81

Ordered this romper thinking it'd be the perfect outfit for the big bachelorette party night in Cabo but it was too short :( Super thankful for Free Returns
Endless Rose Romper - $83

I thought I'd crossed a lot of things off the list last week when I took a solo trip to target and brought 18 things to the dressing room with me.. thank you lord for the no limit at target anymore! I hated having to put something on to go exchange 5 items at a time..
But that 18 things resulted in me purchasing 2 swimsuits and 1 coverup! I thought yay!! I'm getting somewhere!! Then I got home... and started to put it all away... and realized I'm not 19 anymore and really shouldn't have bought what I did.. What was I thinking? Hangs head in shame.

So it all went back :(

I really wanted to like these.. But they were too tight on my feet..
Mossimo Slide Sandals - $27

This one I fell victim to the bottoms being cute, and didn't think about the top enough. :(
If you're able to pull it off I'm jealous! Now I'm thinking I should've kept the bottoms and just worn a black top maybe..
Xhiliration Bralette Bikini - top 17.99 - bottoms - 14.99

One thing I was excited about at the store and still excited about when I got home was this fun beach hat! It has the cutest red/pink tassels on the brim!
 Merona Panama Hat with Tassels - $14.99

Other good Target Finds I need to go back and checkout  -

Thinking about getting these too.. I mean why not?
