Chesterton, St. Patrick's Day and What I Wore Sunday

Thank you all so much for your super kind comments on last week's What I Wore Sunday post.  It was kinda a scary post for me to write, so I really appreciated all the support and kind words and encouragement!  You guys are the best!!!
Here's what I wore today!  It's getting to be the end of sweater and boots season, so I'm trying to wear them as much as possible.  I know everyone else is super eager for spring, but after living n FL for three years and never getting to wear sweaters or boots, I'm sorta enjoying it.  Plus, it's not super cold here...I feel for those of you who still have snow on the ground.

Yes Elsa is wearing a Patriots cheerleader dress during basketball season, even though my husbands hates the Patriots (he's a Manning guy) and I hate football.  You figure it out, because I can't. 
Now, for your (sorta) weekly Chesterton hosted by Sarah.  In honor of St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, I decided to go with this quote. 

 Ain't that the truth?  It's so easy *after* something happens to be all "oh, I saw that coming."  Anyone can do that. I do it all the time, and I'm not even Irish.  I used to pride myself on having pregdar.  As in pregnancy radar, as in whenever a friend announced that they were pregnant, I was all I knew it, before you said anything.   When in reality, I was just looking back at previous signs and thinking Oh, so that's why Sally Sue was munching on snacks in the middle of coop.  It must have been to ward off morning sickness. 

And, what about all those times the phone rings, and I'm all I know who that is, it's x person.  And, then when it is x person, I'm all ahha, I knew it, I must be psychic.  Conveniently I tend to forget all the times I'm sure the phone is x person and it's someone totally else.

Anyway...those are my not so deep thoughts on that Chesterton Quote.

Happy St. Patrick's Day tomorrow!

  1. Congrats on a year of WIWS posts! I'm also not usually a selfie-photo type of gal, but it has been an encouragement to me to get comments from other kind ladies like you, and to see others sharing their pictures. Hope you and yours have a fun St. Paddy's Day!

  2. The serious upside to boots weather is the whole leg shaving issue :P I had a rude awakening this week when I wanted to go out with bare legs only to realize that it was NOT an option in my current state! I'll take the extra 3 minutes in the shower for fewer layers to put on everyone just to go outside ;)

  3. We a huge Pats fans here. My husband is from MA!!

    Personally, I'm ready for flip flop weather but I love your outfit!

  4. You are so clever to post an Irish-related post today :-) and I needed it, too - because I didn't really notice how today's date of the 16th will be followed very soon by the 17th!! Thanks much for the heads-up and the humor. God knows we need it!

  5. I'm a Pats fan, but I love Peyton Manning, too. (As a Pats fan, that's not cool, but I don't care.)

    Great quote. I'd like to join in on that Chesterton link-up one of these days. It's a good one.

    Happy St. Patty's Day!
