Happy Saint Patty's Day!/P.S. 139 PSA

As I sit here in my pink shirt and white tee, I wish all of you a Happy Saint Patty's Day. Alas, I wore my only green shirt that was work/weather appropriate earlier this week, so I will doubtless get a good-natured whack from my Irish mother when I meet up with her for lunch today.

I also completely blanked and sent Will to school in a bright red shirt. So I told the Parent Coordinator that my ginzo half dressed him this morning.

By the way - I have a special PSA on behalf of P.S. 139. The President of the Parents' Association has set up a new website for the school and included on the website is a shopping portal. Every time someone makes a purchase at a vendor linked on the school's website, the school receives a kickback of 3% - 6% of the sale. It's a great and easy way to raise money and it doesn't cost you a cent. There are lots of vendors and we're adding more every day, so if you happen to need something from Gap.com, Expedia.com, or any of the vendors listed - there are a lot! - please think about going through the site to place your order.

I opted to wear a black shirt with a green tank under it. Going a little subtle. And a necklace with some green beads in it...

My mom was bedecked in green, including the green manicure.

I'm cranky.

We all marched in the parade on Friday, with the Longford Association-Ian's great-grandfather is from there. We had to wait two hours till we marched but it was worth it, it was a beautiful day, with the sun on our backs! Then we had dinner, and then Ian and I went out and got trashed at an old haunt.

That is so cool, you have to share pictures!

We used my inlaw's camera, as ours was out of juice, I have to go bug em to see them!

BTW, great idea about the shopping portal on the school site, I will definitely bookmark it!

Cool! This PA Board is really together; Stephan, our PA President, just launched the site and is doing so much to get some more money into the school. I've been trying to get a press kit for the school together to send out to local vendors and bigger companies who have tax money to give. :-)
