New & Noteworthy – Lucky You!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of my Irish heritage the theme for today is luck you! That’s right, lucky you, you get a front row seat to all the things that made my new and noteworthy list.

New & Noteworthy Lucky You

Oh friends, this day brings mixed emotions. It is noteworthy that tonight my family will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day for the first time in 4 years. Just 4 years ago when my father died, we tried to go on with our tradition but it was too soon. What followed over the next few years were half hearted attempts. This year feels right so we’ll go on with our usual festivities. I’ll be hosting dinner for about 15 of us – I’m making the corned beef and cabbage and everyone else will bring the rest.

Trying to psych myself up for the holiday, I’ve been wearing green each day. Take a look at some of my outfits! My outfit Monday included these flare leg leggings.

My outfit on Wednesday – I love this rugby shirt so much! It is on major sale right now too – under $30! I am wearing a size small.

The week started out well with a concert on Sunday night at Hard Rock Live. My husband and I saw Cheap Trick – one of my very favorite bands from the 80’s, They sounded amazing! Music is so powerful and has the ability to bring back memories, I was definitely transformed that night (of course once I saw my face in the mirror I was quickly reminded that I am not 16 anymore). I came away with a cool graphic tee!

Lucky You – These are New!

Over the weekend I made this recipe with ripe bananas I had stored in my freezer. They were so good and I cannot wait to make them again.

Apparently I have been living under a rock because I had no idea how good this egg cooker was. When my friend mentioned that it was the best $10 she ever spent on Amazon, I had to check it out. Yep. She was right. Hard boiled eggs in no time and they peel beautifully!

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty event has arrived (March 12- April 1)! I’ve looked through the flier and saw some things that definitely caught my eye. If you are not familiar with the event, Ulta offers a few products over the 21 days at half price. Each day you can shop the deals for that day. This Sunday, Clarins Double Serum is half price, Sunday, March 25th It Cosmetics CC Cream and Brushes are on sale, and on Tuesday, March 28th my favorite shower oil is half price! I’m thinking of grabbing some things to gift for Mother’s Day but if you have graduations or other celebrations coming up, many of these items will make excellent gifts!

The Kate Spade bag I ordered arrived. I will say the bag is beautiful! The color, the chain strap -swoon worthy. On the down side, the bag is not leather. Unlucky me I should have read the description better, it was a final sale item and no returns. I am having fun using it!

We’re all a bit lucky this week because not only does Target have 30% off dresses and other Spring styles this week BUT this Pyrex set is on sale as well. I picked mine up on Tuesday and I love it. My goal is to eventually replace all of our plastic containers with glass.

I’ll close today’s post with an Irish blessing and of course I wish you a weekend filled with happiness and joy – with a wee bit of good luck thrown in for good measure!
