OK, so maybe I won't always be Irish...but that is a line from a great song in one of my favorite Disney classics, The Happiest Millionaire, that just came to mind on this day where we celebrate the Irish. Here are some pics of my favorite Irish wannabes. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I have become a big fan of country music. I love it because it is usually clean, quality music that tells a great story. So I was pretty excited when Aaron surprised me on Valentine's Day with Rascal Flatts concert tickets (along with a clever poem that he wrote incorporating many of their song titles). I have been a big fan of the group from the beginning when Julia introduced me to them after she bought their first album. She was one of the early fans, before they were even being played on the radio all the time. Since then they have consistently been one of my favorite groups. I think their music is great and the lyrics to their songs tell great stories. Some of my favorites include "It's Not Just Me", "Long, Slow Beautiful Dance", "These Days", "Mayberry", "My Worst Fear", "Bless the Broken Road", "Feels Like Today", "My Wish", and "Ellsworth." I was happy that they sang a few of my old favorites as well as songs from their newest album. Kellie Pickler was the warm-up performer, and she was surprisingly good as well. All in all, it was a great concert with great music that reminded me why I love country music.
