    I almost ordered my first shamrock shake yesterday, but I didn't know if I'd like it...is it minty? I like mint.

    Oh, Kim. It's the best kind of mint. It's heavenly mint. It's delicious and creamy mint. It's shamrock mint.

    I made the mistake of making the Shamrock Shake a class reward while student teaching. No income + 30 Shamrock Shakes made one sad Jem.

    I have never tried a shamrock shake...I may have to tonight. My favorite thing about March though is that Spring is right around the corner.

    Please explain what a Shamrock Shake is? Thanks.

    My favorite things in March are my son's and my dad's birthdays and March Madness. My cousin is involved with a team that ends up playing in March Madness sometimes. Unfortunately the games have always been far away for us to attend (he is able to get us tickets) We're hoping that this year the team is in and they'll be playing near us.

    It's basically a vanilla shake that they make green & put yummy mint into!!! They only have it around St.Paddy's day!!! They are a staple for our family & St. Paddy's day!!! Did you have the Shrek shake when they had those. It's basically that without the brownie in it.

    March Madness...but ONLY because it means that college basketball is almost over. I love sports, but basketball isn't one of them.

    And you get it at McDonalds. I don't know if anyone mentioned that.


    One year my college roomie and I decided to give up ice cream for lent. So it is later in the evening on mardi gras and we were watching tv and saw an ad for shamrock shakes, and we realized that we wouldn't get one during lent because they wouldn't be selling them after Easter. So we rushed to McD to get one before Lent started. Well we ended up each getting a gigantic shamrock shake (this might have been when they still had supersizing - these things were unbelievable) AND we got a big shamrock McFlurry to share (I dont think they make those any more). Well we were walking back to our dorm room and my roomie DROPPED the McFlurry and it ran all over the ground. There was this moment where we just stood there in shock with this terrible looks on our faces, and then my roomie just leaned over and scooped the part that wasn't directly touching the sidewalk back into the cup and said "No one has to know." and we just took off back to the dorm room. haha. I still can't believe we did that. But yes, they are that good.

    those shakes sound good...mmmm
    Well...best part about march is the coming of Spring! I love it! Hiking in the mountains seeing everything in bloom is really nice.
    Hopefully I'll love March when it comes to an end...because on 3/31 I find out if I keep my job or not...

    Irish songs....

    I worked for a while in an Irish Pub.. I was the only American in the place. They had live music and I learned to love a lot of it:

    The Fields of Athenry
    The Streets of New York
    The Streets of London (OK, I know it's not in Ireland. But it was always sung by the Irish bands.)

    Oh, and I learned to detest the smell of corned beef and cabbage!!

    They only have them in March for St. Patrick's Day. Well maybe the end of February too. I thought they had them everywhere though.

    ooooohh I was so mad yesterday. I went to McDonald's yesterday (I only allow myself to go about once a month) and I saw Sharock shake on the menu board and I was so excited! But then the cashier said they were out of Shamrock mix - Why o why McDonald's do you tease me so???

    I may have to make an exception to my once a month rule and get one tonight. They are sooooooooooo delish!!
