Steppin' out - St. Patty's Day dinner w/friends!

My Husband and I really don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day... I mean really.. why would we? We aren't Irish and we do not party or drink so... we really have no reason to. But when my best friend, Kiara, and her family invited us over for a good old fashioned Irish dinner... how could we refuse??
{almost 37 weeks along)
What We Wore -- Linking up with Steppin' Out Saturday @ Harper's Happenings
Bennett - Shirt: Tea Collection // Pants & Shoes: Target
Mama - Shirt: H&M // Pants: Motherhood Maternity (from 3 years ago!) // Shoes: Ross

Corned beef hash and cabbage! It was actually quite good!!  I enjoyed it very much!

And Bennett wouldn't stay in his seat so he just ran around tickling Dane. It was pretty awesome.


The boys playing video games.


Bennett can seriously be such a cheeseball!! I love it!

Dane and Bennett playing a game called Fruit Ninja.

Our attempt at getting a picture with all 4 of us looking at the camera. Bennett, you lose.

So happy to have spent my Saturday night with such great friends, there's nothing else I'd rather be doing on my spare time!

I love love love that shirt! So happy H&M has maternity now! (new in Canada anyway!) definitely will be shopping there for my next pregnancy!

Oh...your belly looks so adorable! As a mom, if someone offers to make dinner, that's all the excuse you need to get out!

So fun!!! I want to squeeze that belly!!! I feel like you really "popped". Like you have that amazing, almost done look. I love how mamas look right at the end, it's just so beautiful how God creates little beings.  Ok, I'll stop talking because you want to punch me in the face right now.

ohhhh that belly! i just adore it (and i'm sure you're just about over it!) you look fabulous.

Sounds like you had a really good day. I'm Irish and drooling over your traditional meal! Yum! We had a cookout but left out most of the traditional stuff because, well, it was hot and I didn't feel like having the oven on for 8+ hours. :)
It's been awhile since I visited your blog {shame on me} and I can't believe how much darker/redder Bennett's hair is! I wonder what color baby brother will be born with?

Lea said...

Mandy, you look great and little Bennett is getting so big.  Oh, my! I'm with you, spending time with friends is TOPS!  Blessings to you as you near the time of Fritz's birth.

Kiara Buechler said...

It was such a fun evening, exploding cabbage and all.  We always love to spend time with the Chiappinis!

ummm, i'd have to try that dinner to believe you it was yummy :P  i've never had corned beef but i'm willing to try!  you look great mandy!  can't believe Fitz could be here any day... holy crap!!

i keep thinking about that dream where you named him my #1 name that we both love.  what if our #2's have the same name????  lol.  can't wait to see what you guys choose!  

Shannon said...

We had that meal as well for St. Patty's day!  I kind of have grown to like corn beef.  My mother in law cooks it quite often.  You look darling as ever.  It looks like your little guy will be here sooner than later!  So exciting!

We celebrate a birthday every St. Patrick's Day.  Our neighbor brought us some tasty Irish fare for the occasion though!  Looks like you guys had a blast!

Stepper McCrery said...

What?! St. Patrick's Day is awesome!

Love your shirt - super cute and fresh looking.

Courtney B said...

You all look SO good! We don't celebrate either but that sounds so yummy!

Nikki said...

I didn't celebrate either.  I magic erased the inside of my dishwasher ;)  The boys are so much fun together, what a great age to be friends!
