Happy St. Patrick’s Day EveEveEve to ye, friends.

In honor of everyone’s favorite Irish holiday coming up on Monday, we’re going “green” today on The Friday Five. Yep, we’re talking everything from green smoothies to green cocktails to green St. Paddy’s Day crafts to DIY green cleaning products. And of course, I had to throw in a few cute ideas for green pieces to wear to avoid the pinching police. (Seriously — that ridiculous pinching — who on earth ever thought that was a good idea?!)

However your holiday ends up, I hope you have a fun time celebrating. And I also hope you have a stellar weekend enjoying all of this fabulous, amazing, glorious sunlight that is now extending into the evenings!!! Oh my goodness. I have been downright giddy each night this week when 6pm rolled around and it was still totally sunny outside. And it’s been warmer. And my dog has reached his adorable super-shaggy-almost-time-for-a-haircut stage. And I got to visit my parents for a day. And my taxes are 95% done. And Nashville is getting cra-zay. And my friends taught me how to make jambalaya. And one of my college friends is coming to stay for a few days. And yeah, basically lots to celebrate.

So cheers to you, with my virtual (soon to be real) pint o’ Guinness. Have a good one!
