Thin Mints Milkshakes


This month is filled with greats!

 















PJ's birthday was March 7th, mine is March 24th, Easter is March 31st, spring arrives this month, AND March 17th is St. Patty's Day. What an awesome month, if I may say so myself.

This week I'm celebrating the upcoming holiday by bringing you some St. Patty's Day treats. All week long! Well, Thursday I'm participating in a challenge so that won't be St. Patty's Day-related. But my other posts will. So if you're looking for some last minute green/mint/Irish goodies, this is the spot to be.

 
















I'm weird for many reasons, I'll admit. I pick at my food. It takes me like an hour to eat dinner. I cry on reality shows, but love to watch UFC fighting and gory scary movies. I don't like to drink after people, even my mom and PJ! 

But the weird thing about me that is relevant for today is that I dislike mint for the most part, except when it comes to York Peppermint Patties, and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. So I dislike mint, but I like mint. Whatever kinda sense that makes.


























So yeah, I like Thin Mints. And I like this Thin Mints Milkshake.  I think yall will too!

Nothing says St. Patty's Day like mint-flavored beverages.

Only thing that could make this cooler would be if it were green!! 
 
 























Stay tuned for more St. Patty's Day goodies throughout the week!


Peace, and bacon grease!

I love how you're all positive about so much going on in March. You call me positive, but I kind of moan every time December comes around b/c both my sisters and my hubby were born that month, it always means overtime for me at work (shouldn't I be thankful for that? lol) and then there's all the Christmas stuff going on. Go you for thinking all the birthdays and holiday in March is the sauce! BTW thank you for being a freak so I'm not the only one. I also am not a huge mint or mint chocolate fan but I do like Thin Mints. I would totally hit this milk shake.

I could eat an entire sleeve of thin mint cookies so I know this shake would rock!

Happy early Birthday!
