There is this cool little post from Huffington Post about why we celebrate with green on St. Patrick’s Day. Did you know that the original holiday color was blue instead of green? While I love the color blue and so does Hunter (he tells me all the time that it’s his favorite color), it’s hard to imagine blue as the main St. Patty’s color since we’ve worn green for so long.

Now forget about what you and your kids will be wearing this year (since I’ve already figured that out for you: St Patrick’s Day Mom Tees and Kids’ Tees) and think about bettering your home.

Adding useful scenery to you house is more than just a pretty plant stashed in a lively spot.
