Happy St. Patrick's Day!! We celebrated the hubs' bday weekend with a night out on Friday and dinner made by muah on Saturday with the in-laws. It was fab! Here's my weekend in pics! Now if only we could have made it to Paddy's Pub.. (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia reference.. anyone? anyone? great show)

Breakfast for the birthday boy on Friday morning was eggs with feta, milk, spinach and pepper paired with some coffee and toast with jam.


While he went to a half day at work, I prepared the German Chocolate Cake for his birthday dinner that we were having at the house Saturday. Mmmm.....


The frosting.... 

Finished product!

That night we went out to dinner at this very nice and super yummy Italian restaurant, Vincenzo's. It.was.good. Here is my look from the night. The fab bun maker, Cover Girl lips, Forever 21 sequined blazer, Rock & Republic for Kohl's top and faux leather pants and black heels by Candie's for Kohl's. Love!

Birthday boy!

The hubs was surprised by his assistant manager who made him birthday cupcakes and brought them to work for him. How sweet! And she did a great job. I would know because I had two one of them later that night...

Now on to the birthday meal on Saturday. Corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, string beans and some swirled rye/pumpernickel bread. My mom gave me the deets on her recipes and I have to give myself a big pat on the back because it all turned out just like hers, or at least close to it!


Ten hours of cooking in my new 16 quart electric roaster that I snagged at Target for a whopping $17, no joke! See, I'm the queen of steals for not only fashion but home good too! ha


Next up is the cabbage. Ended up only using two of them. My mom was right, cabbage goes a long way!

Ready to be steamed on the stove top in some of the liquid from the electric roaster


String Beans. Mmm.... onion, french cut green beans, sugar and salt. To die.

Yes, that yellow liquid at the bottom is butter... four sticks to be exact. Ha! Win some, lose some. Also tossed with some parsley.

And finally, the finished product!

Since we were at my house I didn't want to get super glammed up but still be cute. And I also had to be festive and rock some green! TJ Maxx cardigan and top, Forever 21 belt that I removed from one of my dresses and added here, Lauren Conrad for Kohl's skinny jeans and some Candie's for Kohl's leopard heels. Love!

Stella & Dot love! The colorful Contessa Jade is retired, sorry folks! But the Avalon Crescent Necklace is brand spankin new!

Another S&D piece that is new from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection is the Christina Link Bracelet. Not only is it a bracelet, but it also doubles as an extender for your necklaces. And when you pair it as an extender with an up do, you have a little bling bling for the back of your neck. Genius!! Stella & Dot, you've done it again!

And finally a little eyeshadow sassiness. Love.

Hope you had a fab St. Patrick's Day and a relaxing Sunday.
