Yup, yup, thats right, I am half Irish!!! I know thats hard to believe since I just look SOOOOOO Italian!!! HAHA!!! ;) My mom likes to tease me that I am not dark enough to be Italian!!!! HA! :P ( I am Italian on the INSIDE!!!) The honest truth is that I think of myself as more Italian because it's more the way I was raised. What I have learned about Irish people is that they LOVE to drink, dance and PARTY!!!! RFLOL!!!! So in some ways (Not the drinking!!!) I think that perhaps I am more Irish than I realized!
This is what I have discovered about myself; My looks are Irish. My eating and cooking are Italian BUT anyone that knows me KNOWS that I LOVE to PARTY!!! (Woot, woot!!! Lets get this party started is my motto!!! Right Cara?!?) As for the dancing...Hmmm...I ummmm...PLEAD THE 5TH!! Well, but of course I dance in the spirit at church, eh!!! (Just don't ask my brother about any of our late night escapades in the middle of the night, while he was in the hospital!!!!)
Sooooooo yeah...I really have NO idea why we celebrate this holiday, except that its kinda fun and my mom makes a REALLY good meal!!! (Ok I think corned beef and cabbage and potatoes is the ONLY good Irish meal there is, but HEEEEY!!! LOL) Soooooooo yup, I am embracing my Irishness!!!
