Use Your Words - Leprechaun's Mischief

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once, and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are:

Green ~ Blustery ~ Lucky ~ Awake ~ Stirring ~ Gold

Everyone who knows me is perfectly aware of how much I love St. Patrick's Day. I posted the top ten reasons why just yesterday!

Even though we're the only ones celebrating, and it is tough to find supplies around here, I look forward to it every year. Also it usually means the cold and blustery days are over, and spring is upon us!

Earlier this week I contributed to Blog with Friends. The theme was green. Of course, right? There were wonderfully versatile posts, if you have a minute, check them out.

So what are my plans for this year's St. Patrick's Day?

Well, I have to work on Friday, so we decided to have our party on Saturday. Of course I somehow had to manage to be prepared by Friday morning. Let's see:

Our loyal LEGO man got dressed up as a leprechaun once again. He even got a nice new hat and a necklace that says KISS ME, I'm IRISH! Darth Vader got his eyes greened.

Barbies are all dresses up and have stocked up on sweet goodies.

I wrapped cereal boxes with green and golden paper and created labels like "Pot of Gold Frosties". We can't buy Lucky Charms in Switzerland, but at least Froot Loops have been introduced to our market Our food regulations don't allow for super bright food coloring, so ours look kind of dull.

The living room is decorated and ready to go.

Our Leprechaun Hotel is expecting guests - it's also a trap, haha!

Beer is chilling

All of our TP leprechauns got an Innocent hat. 

Ooohhhh, a green car for Colin!

Colin's green stuffed animals ended up in his hockey bag.

There were items switched around: the herbs & spice rack went into the bathroom cabinet and toiletries miraculously ended up in the kitchen cabinet. 

Shower gel, shampoo? Check the fridge!
The shower rack offered refreshing beverages in return.

All right, then!!! Enjoy Coca-Cola, that's what it says, Mom!

Colin and his friends recently attended a birthday party where they were allowed to play bartender. Of course they'll want to be stirring their green St. Patrick's Day cocktails. He asked for pineapple juice, lime and kiwi. 

It goes without saying that there was a special snack box (check out the jokes) full of green goodies (and I'm not talking about veggies),

 Test tubes were filled with with Jelly Beans in every rainbow color. 

Shoes were tied together with green ribbon.

I wasn't sure how to go about the mischief. Thursday was hockey play-off night, so Colin was up late. I tried to prepare and hide as much as I can and stay awake longer than him. 

Well, that didn't go as planned. Good thing I usually can't sleep through the night.

Now please head over and check out the other posts and have a great St. Patrick's Day!
