What You Didn't Know About Ireland!

Ireland calls to me! Oh how I miss it so much. That is a fact. Here are a few things I did not know about Ireland before I went but found out along the way! 
  1. No stop light or stop signs. Pretty much only round about. In the big cities there are some but not many.
  2. No air conditioning! I know right. I did not know this at all, even in the hotel rooms there was no air conditioning. I guess the temperature is to mild all year long to have it. 
  3. Tayto! OMGOSH! best potato chips Ever. Way better than Lays. If you go to a gas station or store get some Tayto chips any flavor!
  4. Twix taste better. I had read this on another blog and didn't believe it but they really do! I am not sure why but they tasted sweeter and crunchier. 
  5. Narrow Roads. You see picts and say, "Oh they aren't that narrow." No, they really are and it's super scary. 
  6. Sheep everywhere. They really are everywhere. 
  7. Cheeky, if you get called Cheeky it means you are being sassy. 
  8. No road kill. In America you are constantly seeing road kill. I did not see any, it doesn't really matter lol but I noticed it :) 
  9. No large predators. The fox is the largest predator on this lovely island. 
  10. The showers only have half doors. No full length shower doors. 
  11. No side of the road pit stops. In America there is one every few feet. Not in Ireland, there was only one or two. 
  12. Cab Drivers. ARE CRAZY! They drive super duper fast. I almost got car sick once because of the fast motion of the car. 
  13. Not dessert people. I love dessert and chocolate but wherever I went there was not a lot of super sugary desserts. It made me sad at first but it was better for me :) 
Thats what I remember the most and thought was the most interesting. If you have any questions let me know! I love Ireland and can't wait to go back as soon as possible!

Teaching Cup : I love this cup! It is so perfect 
Color: The coral, pink and blue are my very favorite! 
Save the Bees: I really really want to have a bee hive! I am loving the idea of having honey all the time :) Maybe one day when we have a house. 
Kitchen: What a beautiful kitchen! I love the white so much. The open cabinets are also just amazing! 

I just love Pinterest! When I am stressed I either read or get on Pinterest. I love dreaming about my future house also. The kitchen above is perfect. Dreaming about the future is the best! 
Happy Sunday friends!

Eggs Benedict! Also at Springfield Brew Co. this morning. So Amazing. 
Fall threw up at my moms house!  making two wreaths here 
My wreath. I am so in love with it! 
Moms wreath!
My mom and I spent the rest of our time hanging up these frames and such. Kind of scary because they are actually high off the ground. 
Today is my mothers birthday so I treated her to breakfast and we made wreaths! I had so much fun with her today and I hope she did to. I am also working on Banana bread and these cookies! They are seriously the best cookies EVER! 
Fall is here to stay and I am loving it :) 

How is your weekend so far?

Hey friends! Life lately had been really good. School is going great and I am loving my second graders. This past weekend the Hubs went home for a funeral :( I had to stay home because of school. I decided to put off my homework...and read Outlander! and catch up on the TV series. Now a warning...the series is on Starz so there is nudity...we close our eyes lol
Loving Outlander! Also I have my Irish sweater on :)
