Let the festivities begin!

Tomorrow is my St. Patty's Day party! Let the craziness begin. I went to the store tonight and got everything I need- corned beef...check. Cabbage...check. Carrot and potatoes...check (getting hungry now). Lots of beer...hells yes check.

This is a beer household. If you don't like beer, dont come to one of my parties. What did I get? Guinness. Duh. Killian's, because they didn't have Bass or Harp at the store. Amateurs! Coors Light for the green beer. You will never -ever- see me paying money for Budweiser. I'm a Colorado girl, and I drink Colorado beer. I even went to school with Christy Coors. It's kind of a loyalty understand.

I got green food coloring. That should be fun. If I put enough in the beer, it will turn every one's lips and teeth green. Then I can just sit back and secretly giggle at my guests- after they have a few beers they wont even care if their mouths are green. My years of bartending taught me this. It was definitely one of the perks of the job. It'll make for some good pictures. I also got some Irish cream, just in case anyone wants an Irish coffee or an Irish Car Bomb (minus the whiskey).

For dessert, I'm making the Pioneer Woman's apple dumplings. And Dori- I will let you know how they turn out! Practice makes perfect, darling....keep trying them! YUM! I might just skip dinner and eat these all night....

The main entertainment of the night (other than the food) is going to be our Wii. It's a lot of fun, and even better when you're drinking. I'm not any good at any of the games, but it's fun none the less.

Oh oh! I almost forgot. I got a steal of a deal on the corned beef. I *just happened* to pick two roasts (I got 4 total) that didn't have sticker bar codes (meaning no price hee hee). These were BIG roasts- probably $15 ones. When I was checking out, the checker woman was complaining about her job. Since I can relate to having a crappy job, I started teasing her. She perked up just as she came to my roasts. Here's how it went:

Her: "Where is the barcode on this!?"
Me: "Oh crap, I must have picked one that didn't have one...I'm sorry (and I was)!"
Her: "No problem!"

She takes one of the roasts that has a barcode, which happens to be the LEAST expensive one of the bunch, and beeps it 3 times for the ones that don't have stickers. Whoo hoo, thank you! She probably saved me at least $20 from doing that. I cant decide if this was just luck or karma...or maybe I should have made her charge me the correct amount somehow? It was a big added bonus to my shopping trip!

And soooooo, I'm ready to rock. Let the good times roll.

Wait, whuu? Are you saying I ate stolen corned beef? Great! This is just great. So much for my new year's resolution to only eat things that are non-stolen. DI!
