No matter how you celebrate, it’s always a good day for “tie-dyed” Easter Eggs, jelly beans & chocolate bunnies! Thanks to Keith for sharing today’s Easter Basket moment.

A week after St. Patrick’s Day, and it looks like Matthew is still celebrating with his new Shamrock Mug… with a festive sipper & the wearin’ of the green!!!

After a long & productive day in the studio, I thought that it was only fitting to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a minty green Shamrock Shake! It’s been “forever” since I’ve had one… but I don’t remember them being quite this green, nor quite this minty!!!

You know how much I LOVE a good National Holiday! Especially when it’s one of my favorites. Today is NATIONAL OREO DAY! Too hard to choose one… so I had to “celebrate “ with three flavors!!! Aww, shucks!
