I was on the phone with a lady the other day (booking a little mini vacation for the hubby and I, but that's besides the point) and she asked my name. I told her and her response was "well you're going to have a good week aren't you?". Huh? I asked her what she meant and she just said "being Irish and all... must be a big week for you". I smiled... I guess.
Yes, my name is Colleen. It is of Gaelic origin, and the meaning of Colleen is "girl". And although Kingery sounds Irish, it's actually German and well, I'm married into that name anyway so it doesn't really count. My mom's maiden name is Lynch. Okay, so that's a bit more Irish.
I love St. Patty's day, but I'm not an Irish freak or anything. I don't drink green beer (usually) and I really can't stand corned beef and cabbage. But, in spirit of the holiday, I did my best to represent the green on my ride outside today (yep, you read that right... I rode outside!)
Chrissy's Knee High Socks for them. Too cute!
And then this little blinged out gem that my sister-from-another-mother Kristin bought me! I love it! Pop over to her blog (here) and send her some love. She's awesome!
Kestrel bike just once more because I was so happy to be able to ride him today. Definitely going with Papa Smuff as his name! He rode like a machine today! So impressed.
