While today is “officially” the first day of Spring… it’s cold, gloomy & gray here in Chicago.
Still waiting for the sun, warmth & flowers to make their way here.

One more… just because you know how much I love witty wordplay!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!
I’m celebrating with shamrocks growing in my window at home.
A little bit of Spring on another cold & dreary Friday in Chicago!

Always looking for a good reason to celebrate… and eat PIE!!!
Tonight is the last night of my pottery class and we’re celebrating with a potluck as usual.
But today’s a holiday… NATIONAL Pi DAY !!!

So I planned ahead and baked two Chocolate Chip Tollhouse Pies.
Keeping it obvious for those slow on the take!
Pi…  3.14…  March 14th…  get it?! Any excuse for PIE!!!

One of my favorite days… one of my favorite holidays!!!
Who doesn’t like Pi?… or even better PIE?!!!
I might just have to eat 3.14 slices myself to celebrate?!

Don’t forget… we’re all losing an hour this weekend!

Today’s the day and I hope you’ve been celebrating…
I know I have been… a couple times… but who’s counting?!

It’s March 6th… which is also National OREO Cookie Day!!!
If you’ve got ‘em, pile ‘em in!!! And wash ‘em down with a big glass of milk!!!
