Look what I found while shopping………..this has my name all over it……….LITERALLY!!!!
I was online last night shopping for an Irish T-Shirt…..I hit the search button and look what popped up on my computer screen!
Why was I looking for an Irish shirt, when I am the Italian half of this marriage made in heaven??? Keep reading and you’ll find out!
We are getting ready to head to Cape Cod, Mass for our annual family vacation…..we are all so excited…..we have a wonderful time visiting with the “Gaelic” side of the family and we rent a house with my Aunt Betty, Uncle Kevin, and Eddie….so don’t worry, there will be a little “Garlic” mixed in there too!
We have such a great time just hanging out on the beach and letting the kids run around. It is a very footloose and fancy free vacation.
The highlight of our trip each and every year, is the Saw Doctors concert….they are a rock band from Dublin, Ireland and they are fantastic!
This will be our 4th year going to this concert, however my SIL(sister in law) and friends have been going for many years. The concert is held at The Melody Tent in Hyannis, Mass…..it is an outdoor theatre….and man does it get hot!
Each year my SIL and her friends recruit more people to attend the concert…….we start the night off at my SIL’s for a pre party bash….our contribution for the past two years……red and green vodka jello shots….she arranged a bus to transport us to and from the concert…..the jello shots made there way on the bus last year and I became known as the “The Jello Shot Girl”………I walked the bus aisle carring the tray of jello shots back and forth handing them out to all party goers….of course popping a couple along the way myself……wouldn’t want to miss out on the fun!
The crowd under the tent is just wild………there are lots of Irish flags flown in the air as well as anything else that symbolizes Ireland or the Irish…..so we thought this year we might get in on the fun and wear some festive clothes….I found THIS website last night, and Pat and I are both ordering shirts….you all know I will be wearing the one at the top of the page, Pat is still making his final decision.
This year I have been told that we will have the biggest crowd ever……my SIL bought 75 tickets back in March when they were released for sale and I believe they are all accounted for……I think I better start stocking up on jello and vodka!!
Since we are on the subject of Cape Cod and clothes shopping………I have to share some of my recent finds for Sarah……nothing like getting into vacation mode by shopping for some new clothes! I don’t know about you, but when I look at these outfits, they remind me of New England…..very preppy!
I am loving the navy and green……..it seems to be everywhere right now!
Not like she needs another bathing suit, but I saw this one on a sale rack as I was passing by and just couldn’t pass it up! I know…..I need some serious help……can you say SHOP-O-HOLIC!
There is nothing like the beaches of Cape Cod and an entire of week of just hanging out with family and friends sounds like heaven to me!
Other than some major R&R, I am sure we will do a little shopping, the guys are planning to hit the golf course a couple of times, and we would like to take the kids on a Whale Watch….especially if we get a rainy day….they say you always see more whales when it is rainy!
The count down is officially on………we leave in exactly one week….WHOO HOOO!!!
