Above: Me, 1980, St. Patty’s Day, in front of my mom’s old bug …seen in This is what I’d be dressed if my mom still had her way …Erin go Bragh crown and all! Mind you, my maiden name is Shanahan …I’m as Irish as they come. Well, minus the red hair and freckles.

This is actually the 3rd year posting this photo of me when I was about 4 years old on this blog. That blows my mind. However, the first year I posted it, I had maybe about 20 visitors a day …my how we’ve grown ;) Thanks luuuvers! Happy St. Patrick’s Day to ya!

    I love your pic from when you were a kid! So cute!

    Also, the red hair is a myth. The Irish are known for dark hair and light eyes, it’s the Scottish who have the red hair. Funny how it’s been switched around over the years and misinterpreted. The only reason I know is because my sister has red hair and I have dark, we always assumed she got her red hair from my mom’s Irish side but we’re corrected by my straight off the boat Irish grandmother lectured us on this fallacey (that she is on mission to correct apparently).

    Happy St. Pats!

    Haven’t been here in a while, glad to see (and a bit jealous) that you are looking as AMAZING as ever.

    Green + Leopard print = awesome. You’ve inspired me to add a leopard scarf to my green cardy today :0)

    I love the photo of you as a “wee babe”. :) Too cute!!!

    I’m irish too but I definitely don’t have red hair but I do have the green eyes.

    And funny thing about Jade is the New Black. After I sent it to you a few days later another bottle arrived in my mailbox in the form of a gift. So I’m sporting a green mani/pedi today too!!!

    You look awesome in green! That coat is to die for and I can see why it is your favorite piece. You look smokin in that skirt. It really shows off your great figure. Also, I love the idea of using a bib necklace as a belt. Happy St. Patrick’s Day Doll! xo

    Your green OPI looks like my Jade drugstore version. But yours seems a little lighter. I think I want/need it. :)

    Hello Maegan you are wonderful, I would propose that you put pictures of your shoes in your closet to see how they are, if they last a lot, if you clean them well and if they have marks of the feet to see the quality of the shoes.
    Congratulations on your blog and a kiss.

    Hey Maegan,
    Long time listener, first time caller!
    I second ^ Karen’s request. I was actually going to ask how you keep all your accessories organized (watches, earrings, etc.). I’m struggling.
    PS – been daydreaming of making your knotted necklace! Keep the creativity comin’!
